I finally received my copy from Deep Discount DVD last night, so I threw it in the player, popped some corn, and settled in to watch one of the greatest low budget exploitation flicks in history. At first I was thrilled at how much better it looked on my 16:9 tv than my battered laserdisc copy. But it didn't take long before I realized that it didn't look quite as sharp as most of my DVDs do. So I hit display and noticed that there were NO progressive flags on the disc. No big deal, I thought to myself, so Image forgot to flag it. I'll just set my player into a "forced film" mode to get the full resolution. But that turned out to be a disaster. Severe combing in every single frame. Then I realized what Image had done. Not only was the disc flagged improperly, but the fields had been swapped as well! How "asleep-at-the-switch" does one have to be to botch a simple telecine job this bad?!? This will not de-interlace (do film mode) properly on either my Pioneer or JVC stand alone prog-scan players, nor can PowerDVD accurately display it in "weave" mode on my PC. Only VirtualDub*, using the Telecide filter, could make sense of the mess, but of course, that program has the luxury of not having to work in real time. Also, since I don't have a DVD-R burner, the .vob files it created are of little use to me, since they can only be viewed with PowerDVD on my PC. So, do any cadence-reading prog-scan DVD players do film mode on this disc properly, or are they equally confused by the swapped fields? Is there any chance Image will fix this fantastic blunder? * I realize that even mentioning VirtualDub could get me in trouble with the strict anti-pirating stance of this forum, but I don't feel that making a personal copy for the sole purpose of fixing a serious mastering blunder constitutes piracy.
