Site Update – What the heck has been going on? 20

My Life… Image © Lucasfilm, Ltd.

Long time visitors to this site have noticed that there has not been a lot (any) new updates over the past few months. I want to give a quick update as to why, and where things are headed. The first issue was that I was impacted by a major flood in the spring, and had to evacuate. Thankfully, I sustained no damage as I was on higher ground, but I was cutoff for a few weeks and was unable to add new content. The second and more significant development was due to my wife, particularly the fact that she no longer wanted to be my wife. These things happen, and I am ok. But the big problem is that the space I used to run the site, mix audio, and so on, has been converted to her bedroom. So I don’t have a place right now to do what I need to do to provide quality updates on the site.
I would also like to mention that I get a lot of emails where there seems to be an assumption that there is a team of people making this site work. There is not…it is just me.

What is next?

There is good news! Site hosting has been renewed until July 2019, and I am happy to say that the money raised from folks ordering custom pre-show trailers covered that expense. Thank you to all who have supported the site in that way, and thank you to those who have made a donation, made an Amazon purchase through an affiliate link, or clicked on an advertisement – every penny helps. I may have a new source for official 5.1 mixes, which is also great news. I hope to have more on that soon.

When will this site be back to normal?

I thought I would be able to be back by now. I am currently looking for a new place, and my ex wife seems motivated to move things along. I think it will be a few more weeks, but I will be back! I appreciate all your patience and look forward to providing you with the highest quality content available.

Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Trailer 2 IMAX 4K and 1080p PCM, DTS, and AC3 5.1 10

Who wants the IMAX version of the second trailer for Avengers: Infinity War (2018) with the full 1.9:1 aspect ratio? Well, if you do there are three versions available: A 4K (4096×2160) mkv with PCM, DTS and AC3 5.1 encodes; a 1920×1080 mkv with PCM, DTS and AC3 5.1 encodes, and a 1920×1080 mp4 with AC3 5.1 audio. The 4K version is large at 1.5 GB.

Some people are still asking about playback on the PS4. I have confirmed that these files, and likely everything I have posted in the past two years will play on the PS4. For playback on a PS4, the USB stick must be formatted as FAT32. Nothing else will work. Secondly, you can not have the files in the root directory, they must be in a folder. It does not matter what the folder is called — it just has to be in a folder. If it still does not work, update your version of the PS4 Media Player.


Deadpool 2 (2018) Trailer 3 1080p PCM, DTS, and AC3 5.1 upmix with stereo

Deadpool 2 (2018)

The first full trailer for Deadpool 2 has been released, with both Red Band and Green Band versions. As Fox only provides stereo mixes, the 5.1 tracks on the files are upmixes from the official stereo. The .mkv files contain the original stereo tracks used for the 5.1 upmixes. Enjoy!

In other news, I am searching for the IMAX version of the new Avengers: Infinity War (2018) trailer and will post if I get it. I do not have the teaser for Fantastic Beasts, and storage space is now at capacity….so I will be removing some older content to make way for new content.


DOLBY ATMOS Nature’s FURY

Dolby Atmos - Nature's Fury 5.1 Audio

Dolby Atmos – Nature’s Fury DD+ ATMOS Audio

The Dolby Trailers page has been updated to include Nature’s Fury with Dolby Atmos. The original source video was very low bitrate, and contained a lot of banding in the color gradients. I adjusted the video to remove the banding. Compared to the original, it is a bit darker, but I think it looks better. The audio on this is DOLBY ATMOS, but unlike the other ATMOS trailers I have on the site, this one uses Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 as the base for the ATMOS objects instead of the TrueHD 7.1 that would be found on ATMOS Blu-rays. Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 with ATMOS is used by Netflix for streaming ATMOS content.

Unless this trailer is misleading, I think it gives far too much away. So if you don’t want spoilers please do not watch trailer 2. If you are ok with potential spoilers, then you can find trailer 2 at the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) page.
