Capping Notes: SPN 5x01 "Sympathy For The Devil"

Capped the first episode of SPN's fifth season from the BluRay file over the weekend. Thought I'd share a few notes and comparisons.

Time spent capping the episode: 4 hours (Took a little longer because I was also watching TV. :P)
Original Cap Count: 1,313
Final Cap Count (after sorting & deleting): 999

Original Hi-Res Download 5x01 Cap Count: 777

Here's a comparison between the Hi-Res Download cap (top) to the new BluRay cap (bottom).

This time I'm showing you the fixed & final versions of the caps. I know many of you will like the top, non-BluRay cap better because of the increased color, but really the bottom cap represents the true color of the episode better. You have to remember that most of the time the color on SPN is very muted. It's only for certain episodes (such as "Changing Channels" & most of "It's A Terrible Life") that have more normal intense TV color. I'd also like to point out that the top cap has a bit of a color cast inherent in the HD episode downloads.

One thing about capping these BluRay files is that I have a little more control over the video in the VLC player and I'm getting some images I've never seen before. Thought I'd share a few with you.

This is actually an image of the recap from "Heaven And Hell" when Anna sends Cas and Uriel away. I thought it was cool how you can see Castiel's wings as he de-materializes.
Capping this scene was really difficult! And I thought night time car scenes were bad. :P But I persevered and got a couple of shots of the boys with the oxygen masks on from inside the plane. :)
An interesting and nice cap of Meg during the motel room fight scene.
