I can't speak for American Dreamz.

The only one of these I see as a musical is Moulin Rouge. My 2 pennies.

Quoting T!M:

Similarly, we could also say that a "sound effects editor" is still a "sound editor", just one whose job is defined in a specific way. Same for "On-Set Art Director": still an art director, but one whose job is defined in a specific way. No matter what the outcome of this debate is, I really don't see how you can accept one and not the other. If we want to open up crew credits like this, then we shouldn't be surprised if users will apply that premise accross the board. If an "On-Set Art Director" is deemed valid, I don't see why a "Sound Effects Editor" wouldn't be valid either.

I agree with T!M on this one. I would love to allow them.

Of course T.J. Miller will also become T. J. Miller [T.J. Miller] in the online DB.

I voted to allow them because an Art Director is an Art Director whether they have a prefix or not. To me it seems that an On Set Art Director would have just as much, if not more expertise to handle the added pressure of being on set.

Personally I think that these combo packs should be handled like box sets.

Just plain details in the main profile, no features, no cast, crew. Just data about the case.

Then child profiles for the individual discs.
I think this would more accurately copy the true nature of the pack.

I agree with CubbyUps because it would more accurately handle the individual profile information.

I personally use the parent like 4K or 3D and only put the information in that profile that pertains to that disc. I remove the information about the children, then lock down those areas. I also have created a custom media type for 3D. 3D may be blu-ray, but you cannot play it without a 3D player or 3D TV. When I search for information about a profile, I only get those entries that actually have that information; (i.e., search for profiles that contain featurettes and you will see the parent and the children. If the 4K or 3D parent truly has featurettes then OK, but if it's only the blu-ray or DVD child that has the featurettes your not getting accurate search results). My 2 pennies.

One last note: Custom media, in my case for 3D only media, will not allow region information because the database was written to not allow it. It works fine on 4K because it was added as a unique media type within the program. The irony to that is, as I understand it, all 4K are region free, but you could set a region other than region free if you so desired, but not for 3D. Bottom line here is if you have a 3D disc, Blu-ray disc and a DVD the parent is completely useless for region information.

One last piece of information. Custom roles for crew members is the best thing since sliced bread as they reflect the actual role, listed in the credits, in the profile. However, if you have Group dividers, and most profiles do, and you accept changes that someone else made to the profile, they will duplicate crew members with custom roles and place them elsewhere with the generic role. I have sent several support tickets about this, but over the years, haven't so much as received even one reply saying it can't be changed or that it's being worked on.

Done now.

I think it has a lot to do with the what the director wants, along with the DoP.

I think The Masters of Cinema Series: #134 qualifies, but that's just me. If they do not fly in the online then I would keep it local.

The also have a 3-disc case.

Topic Replies: 8, Topic Views: 754
I think it depends on its usage. If the No. is describing which edition it is then it belongs. In your examples I think all 3 should have a number because it describes the edition. Kill Bill it's part of the title. Just my 2 pennies.

I don't use iTunes for movies, but I do have a VUDU account and with tags and Custom Media Type, I already track them.

Absolutely, it's still, pound for pound, the best out there. Non-contribute mode might not be ideal, but the software with it's flexibility is. I only use 4.0RC because of the latest features.

No region code on a parent just means when you see the profile you know to look for it on the children.


That may be how YOU would interpret it, but doesn't guarantee that others would interpret it the same way. If a parent displays No Region Coding, many people would assume they can play its contents on any DVD player, regardless its region coding.

The problem is that in DVDP the region coding field displays the same 0 (No Region coding) if the field is left blank without checking the data and if it has been verified that the discs in it indeed have no region coding.

I was just giving an example of how it could be used locally. There is a way to have it not show any region code, 0 or otherwise.

So all parents should have no region code?

That's not what I meant. I simply meant it for the particular instance you mentioned.
