One of my fondest memories as a child. I probably broke the VHS tape rewinding that one scene.








































In my dreams... I'm Louis Tully.



A note on screencapping. I have no idea what I'm doing. This movie looks brilliant on my monitor but for some reason when I cap it, it comes out sub-par and looks too dark. Is there a better way?
(I am using the Ulead DVD program, but also tested VLC)

Mmmmm... I've always admired Annie's ball control! An amazingly sexy woman! Thanks for the caps, sx!

BTW, I use Power DVD for caps, and I usually have to increase the brightness with it to keep the caps from being too dark. I've never used Ulead, so I'm not familiar with it, but it probably works about the same. It also seems your caps aren't the proper aspect ratio. Here's one I cleaned up and corrected the ration on. See how it doesn't look stretched out now.



Here's a few links to some cool little free calculators for aspect ratios:

Hope this might help you some. Great caps, anyway! Thanks, again!

Thanks MJ. I know what you mean about the aspect, and I was trying everything to correct it. After making the cap I put it through PaintShopPro and tested to find the proper fit. Trouble was, everything I tried made the diagonal lines look wonky and jagged. I convinced myself after trying to no end that it was all in my head, and the 1080 x 720 was by and large the absolute standard for widescreen and that the trouble was only my monitor (or my mind, a guy goes a little funny after staring at the screen so much.) So I decided to post them like that and see what happens, someone out there has better programs and will probably fix em up nicely.

I hate to sound like too much of a newb, but... why is that? Why is your touch up in aspect of 1080 x 608 and it looks fine?

btw, thanks for the links to the aspect calculators. I plan on giving them a whirl.

The actual aspect ratio for a 1080 wide cap (at 16:9 NTSC... PAL is different) is 607.5, but my image editing software won't do half pixels (most won't), so 1080x608 is the correct ratio, thus minimal aliasing. There are only about 3 ratios that are used in movies. 4:3 (fullscreen or letterboxed widescreen) 16:9 (1.85 to 1) and 16:9 (2.35 to 1). The 2.35 to 1 will have the black bars at the top and bottom, where the 1.85 to 1 won't. Hope this clears it up a bit.

Hello,

I just couldn't leave well enough alone. Here is my new batch of captures, this time in the right aspect ratio and more colorfuly balanced. And there are a couple of new ones in the beginning. Thanks go out to MasterfulJohnson for being my sensei.
































Also a note: I had to throw out ten caps that were doubles and I didn't realize it. Ulead has a nasty habit of "hiccuping" every ten frames or so. Thats not cool.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words. Once again, I want to be Louis Tully.
