Hi again guys,

Just a quick update. I've finally finished the Blu-ray discs I was working on. Wow. I love Blu-ray but like any technology in its infancy, there are quite a few bugs in the authoring software to be worked out. So frustrating! And a hundred or so bucks in coasters too, which is annoying.

Anyways, this now means I am freed up to start the Late Show extras discs as promised. I'm gonna take a few days off the computer, but I will get stuck into it next week. I'll have an update on what content will be on the disc very soon. I think it will be one disc (a very full disc mind), but if there is too much I will have to look at two discs.

I guess this would be an appropriate time to put a call out for any content you guys might have to add?

Cheers
Ben

Can't help with the content, but can provide my fair share of interest still.
Cheers Ben.

Quick Update....

Post by BenjaminG » Sat Oct 03, 2009 12:09 pm

Hi guys,

Just a quick one. I am just converting the last of the video assets now (thanks to some last minute additional content!) I hope to have the final contents list known to the forum tomorrow, when I begin the disc authoring stage (menus, etc). At this stage it will either be one very packed DVD or two DVD's. Obviously for logistical reasons one disc is preferred but I won't reduce the quality of the video for the sake of doing that. Again, I will know tomorrow regarding this.

Also, it would be wrong to advertise it as a 'Late Show' extras disc, when it really encompasses everything from the original D-Genertation, Late Show, Frontline, the movies etc. So it will really exist separately from the Late Show DVD collection.

Alrighty, until (hopefully) tomorrow!

Cheers Ben! I should have dug up that Tony on Denton piece and sent it to you... :(

Sounds like a packed to the brim piece of work there Ben. And a whole bunch of work too. Kudos to you sir.
