Is there anything at all different with these releases? New intros perhaps? Or are these just the episodes?
And the episodes being released are only from the SciFi years, correct?

Mike recorded an intro for each episode and there's no restriction on era. We were delivered a batch of 10 episodes to start with and they were not all Mike episodes.

I love all the arm chair "rights lawyering" going on on the RiffTrax facebook page.

I just assumed that all the ones we will get will be from Shout Factory! So there won't be any surprises there.  I do love how Shout is all over the place willing to try anything to get their products out. You can watch them/buy them in a ton of places!

The graphics look identical to the Shout Factory downloads, so I'd say you are correct that Rifftrax will simply get what ever Shout has already made available for download.

These recordings were originally made in interlaced format...have the episodes been converted to progressive for HD TV's?
If the answer is yes, then the Rifftrax crew is working on these files prior to being released.

Correct, this is something we're doing with Shout!.

They haven't been converted. The only thing that I've done with them, aside from tacking on the intro, is a little bit of image centering (on a few of them, the frame for the host segments didn't lineup with the frame during the movies) The rest is as delivered.

Wonder if the really loud audio pop is still in The Final Sacrifice?
Title: Re: #MST3KMonday
Post by: Thrashalla on November 02, 2015, 07:11:44 PM
It is NOT haha. I couldn't put it out like that and was able to make that pop (actually a big one and four small ones) go away - or at least it is significantly less noticeable and your ears will no longer bleed.

I think I found a framing or cropping issue with the new TFS release.

TFS released today on the left...TFS from the Shout! DVD on the right

Does anybody know if this means Mike/Kevin/Bill will now benefit from future Shout Factory DVD sales as well?

Nice!!!  For my copy i just replaced the audio for those pops from another source. It only took me like 5 minutes to do!

I don't see how Rifftrax licensing the videos from Shout! would alter the ownership of the series, so no I wouldn't think it changes anything in that regard.

CHF01 (You have no idea how long I thought you were a big Pantera fan because I can't read good.) New file is in the hopper and being baked up. Once it's QC'd and up I'll post again.

Yeah it came up almost immediately when it was released. SHOUT! had a message board at the time and people were talking about it. 

We have a thread here too:  http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php?topic=17622.0

What I find funny is that people claimed they didn't have the glitch when it was confirmed by Brian Ward the producer from Shout! that it was on the master.

Will .ISO 'Download to Burn' file format be offered at some point with the MST3K eps?
Title: Re: #MST3KMonday
Post by: Thrashalla on November 06, 2015, 10:23:57 AM
It hasn't been discussed but since they're already available on DVD and other than the audio fix in TFS they're both from the same masters, I wouldn't expect so...but who knows, I'll bring it up in the next weekly meeting and get a solid answer.

Will this cut down on the amount of new (and I mean new) riffs? Frankly I will buy anything new you guys do but $10 for a MST3K episode I've seen 10x... and has been available with packaging and extras forever... And is free now on Hulu and Netflix (or has been)....And I mean dont 90% of us have every MST3K ep anyway if we're being honest.

And say this plays out... someone is going to pay $220 for a season of the show? I mean give me a master box set and I'll pay $1k, but for a bunch of iso files? God.

Sorry to be negative, clearly we all love what you guys do. I hope this brings in lots of money, but for your rifftrax fans, will we be getting the same amount of new stuff? If you need help just ask.

I doubt Mike taking a couple minutes to record an intro each week with alter their production schedule in any significant way. This is literally just another product they can sell in their store.

Exactly! Just adding what they sell on the site. Much like when they used to sell DISEMBAUDIO'S KICKBUTT ENERGY BALLS!

This will not alter the regular production schedule at all. No worries on the flow of RiffTrax content. :)

So Trace has been making a big deal on Facebook about how profits from MST3K Episodes purchased from Rifftrax go to all of the show's original creators. Don't know the specifics there, but that's a pretty good reason to buy from Rifftrax.
