It's Corey Peterson's first day at Hallow End High School when he discovers that there's a rash of murders occuring on campus. It's a battle of jocks versus the geeks and Corey is forced to choose sides.

I spliced this together from a French dubbed DVDRip (2.368:1, DivX5, 25fps) I got via eMule a couple of years ago, and the SAPHiRE release (1.333:1 Pan&Scan, DivX3LM, 23.976fps), also downloaded via ed2k (which took a meagre 640 days.. ;)).

A simple framerate change to 23.976fps on the video, and a delay on the audio did the trick - audio/video sync is perfect all the way through. :)

While the widescreen rip is undercropped left and right, the following screens should make clear why I decided to post this hybrid, instead of the original SAPHiRE release:

SAPHiRE, 1.333:1 (P&S):

SAPHiRE, 1.333:1 (P&S):

The widescreen rip has a lot more picture left & right, and overall superior picture quality, despite the high-ish res and neglected side-cropping. Also, the SAPHiRE rip has some picture errors, most likely scratches on the DVD's source (see third pair of screens).

Thanks to the unknown French ripper and SAPHiRE, for their respective releases. :beerchug:

I think this should be tagged as DVDmux, not DVDrip. Non-english forums usually have a dedicated section for this kind of works, and use DVDmux tag to avoid any confusion, because they are "manually modified rips". :beerchug:

Hmm.. I think most rips tagged as "DVDMux" are DVD video plus VHS/TV audio - usually a dub, done for films for which the desired dubbed track is not available on DVD. I assume this is the reason you mostly see sections dedicated to such work in non-English forums. :)

The above... 'creation' is DVD video + DVD audio, so DVDMux would be misleading. The only difference between this and a regular DVDRip is, video and audio are from different source DVDs. Seeing that nothing was re-encoded (both video framerate conversion and timeshift are lossless processes), both video and audio are DVDRip quality, nothing less.

However, thanks for the input, weezee - if a mod decides to change this to DVDMux, I won't have a problem with it. :)

No, it's not misleading. The concept is not "video and audio are both from DVD", but "it's been manually modified from different sources" no matter what. It means there is always a 0.0001% chance of some fuck-up. The fact is that with DVDmux tag you know that you are downloading something that does not exist on retail, something custom. I've done many muxes, I always use DVDmux tag, no matter the audio source. And BTW I am one of those geeks that is much more interested in muxes exactly because they often bring something "uncut" or unavailable in any other form.

I'm not sure what the policy is on "DVDmux".

I don't understand this:

so ALL your rips have the DVDmux tag?

Nope, my MUXES have DVDmux tag. I often add italian audio track to non-italian movies that were released in Italy at theater/TV/SAT/VHS but not on DVD. For example, Near Dark is a widely known movie, it was released at cinema and broadcasted on TV, but was never released on DVD in Italy, so I got an english DVDrip and added italian audio track from satellite and made it dual language. Some other times I only leave italian track because the DVDrip itself I've found is already dubbed in a non-original language. In either cases, they are DVDmux, a.k.a. movies built together from parts of different sources, of which the video is from DVD. If I use a SATrip as video source and add a different audio track, I tag it SATmux.

This is in English; the video is from the French widescreen DVD, the (original English) audio from the SAPHiRE release.
