Message Details
Regarding the greenies: according to the Invelos website "Positive ratings reward community members who post helpful or useful messages."
Which is a highly accurate description of the type of community member you are.   

So thank you once again for all your efforts - in spite of Invelos seeming to be end-of-life - to make a great program even greater!

That would be http://www.invelos.com/DVDCollection.aspx/battitta64.

Agreed. I don’t think any of these two credits should be entered.

I don’t think so. I would seek to enter the people in charge of the creative side of visual effects only. That’s how I understand generic Visual Effects credits, which I believe we’re after for DVDP purposes. Producer-type roles do not qualify for that, I think.

Your mileage may vary, of course.

It seems these days all they do is process contributions and maintain the central database. And occasionally remove some spam from these forums.

In terms of product development, it pretty much seems to be abandonware. Why this is the case? Your guess is as good as mine. Since it all depends on a single person, it could be a health issue or other personal circumstances. In the absence of any communication by the company, that's all speculation, not fact.

I wouldn't include them, but I guess you could think of them as a disc feature.

I agree with rdodolak.

That suggests submitting these “new”. Disc IDs serves no purpose.

To me, contributing requires being sure that what I’m submitting is correct. As a result, I will not remove role names unless I’m sure they’re incorrect. But that’s just me.

Sounds like a plan.

Agree with the others: main features only.

For the box set parent profile: Title.
For the individual movies' child profiles: Edition (per the rule quoted by Eagle).

Other than processing contributions for the central Invelos database, very little seems to be going on.

Let me join the choir as well: no valid credits.

Agree with Gunnar. Nothing against copying, but only if it serves as a starting point only, to be followed by verification against the actual credits.

Very simple: the Contribution Rules tell us to take cast and crew information from the film credits. Only role names, if missing in the film credits, can be taken from elsewhere.

In your case, the intermediate profile level is UPC/EAN-based, in the OP’s case it is Disc ID-based. Per the rules, the former type of profile is allowed, the latter is not.

Please take a look at the examples at the bottom of this page:
http://www.invelos.com/dvdpro/contributions/Rules.aspx?display=altversions.

Your case is similar to the second example, the OP’s case is similar to the last one.

That’s a different kind of animal, indeed. Agree with Andy.

Quoting Corne:
Quote:
What about extra features? In general, should all the extra features be added to each alternate id? Even if they are connected to the other movie? What about extra features not connected to any movie? I'm a little bit confused.

Each DVD is a parent profile in its own containing 3 films that happens to be on the same disc and on the same side. That's where the alternate disc ids are for. It is the same as grand box sets containing multiple box sets. In that case the smaller box sets are added as child profiles containing child profiles for the discs with the movies. This is not different?


I think you're wrong here.

The Alternate Versions section of the rules mentions the following as one of the applications of the alternate versions feature:

"More than one film on the same side of a single disc (including Bonus Feature Films)
Use for: Different films on the same side of a single disc.
Do not use for: Different cuts of the same film
The first added entry uses the base Disc ID, and subsequent additions use the next available alternate version."

The way I understand the rules (as explained in my earlier posts in this thread) there is not to be a disc-level parent profile by Disc ID, and all individual movie profiles should be connected directly as child profiles to the profile of what you're calling a "grand box set".

This, in turn, also explains why the Box Sets section of the rules contains this:

"In addition to the above, the following are not included on the box set profile: Subtitles, Audio & Disc Features. List them with the individual profiles."

Features should therefore be listed with the child profile of the individual movie they belong to.
Extra features not connected to any movie might well be very rare in these types of sets, but if they do occur, I would think they should be listed in the parent profile.

It says “one profile per movie”, not “a disc-level profile snd one profile per movie”. Crystal clear, I would think.
