If anyone is interested in seeing the "Yesterday Once More" version of the "We've Only Just Begun" video with overture intro:

Hi everyone,

I have been looking through some of the music videos on "YOM" frame-by-frame, and wanted to report back! I've found that, for at least two music videos, "Superstar" and "There's a Kind of Hush (All Over the World)", the video was actually slowed down (even though "There's a Kind of Hush" is still sped up compared to the album version). Frame-by-frame, both films have 4 frames of movement, then 1 frame duplicating the fourth frame. And this pattern repeats: 4 moving frames, then the 5th frame is identical to the 4th frame.

To me, this explains why this black & white video from GTK Australia sounds sped up compared to the "YOM/Gold" version:


I hope someday we can see these music films (and more!) at their unadjusted speeds, and without the edits!

That’s NTSC 3:2 pulldown you are seeing. That’s how 24fps to 29.97 fps is done. Even modern DVD, Blu-Ray and streaming devices do it on the fly, so that if you are going from a 24fps program to a TV that can’t accept a 24p image, then the device can display it at 29.97. But in 1985 that’s all they could do.


PAL uses either 2:2 pulldown where every frame is duplicated. Or the other option is simply playing the film at a faster speed in order to get it to 25 FPS.

Whoa, I wonder if this is because my YOM DVD is from Japan?

If that's the case, I may have set my MP4s at a wrong FPS...
