Getting Blu-Ray files
Time

You can use MakeMKV to rip Blu-rays, that’s the easiest way I know. You’ll need a Blu-ray drive of course. Resolve won’t support MKV, so you can use Handbrake to make MP4s or something, that’s what I did for Resolve. Or find another program to rip straight to a supported format. Good luck. (this thread is probably better suited for How-To’s and Technical Discussions btw)

Edit: ChainsawAsh’s method is vastly superior. I think Resolve doesn’t support AVI files though, so keep that in mind. I’d definitely recommend demuxing the audio into separate tracks either way because Resolve isn’t great with importing multi-channel audio in some cases.

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>

Just as a test, here’s the beginning of the sail barge sequence with flipped shots put back:

It’s more jarring than the original, without a doubt. Although, I do like that Mark Hamill’s face is flipped back to normal now. I think that’s the main giveaway.

IMHO that looks incredibly promising. I never realized how incredibly off putting it was to see Mark Hamill’s face flipped like that. As someone else said, it really bothered me on a gut-level and I didn’t realize why.

Yes, Mark’s off-putting asymmetrical mirrored face is the only reason I’d want them flipped. Then there’s the direction of Leia’s chain not really matching between shots, and the 180 degree rule stuff that was mentioned before. It’s a trade-off, I guess.

Intriguing, nice ideas! I hope you can pull it off. I may be able to help with certain things down the line. Looking forward to seeing the preview.

I’ve actually thought about this before. I’m all for it, as long as it doesn’t replace the forums in any way. Just to use for casual discussion.

My suggestion for ROTJ:R has to do with this funnily enough.

I came across a track that I thought that might work as a replacement. I do not mind Lapti nek but It is an idea to cut the puppet singer and just have the blue elephant on keys. Anyway listen to the track.

Billy Preston- outa space the original 45.

Seems it so good it has been blocked. Sorry for typos tired.

Outa Space, great song. I could see that working.

Star Wars: A 3-in-1 fanedit of the Star Wars Trilogy (With only one Death Star)
Time

Although, killing off Tarkin in a narration would feel like a cop-out. I might wanna have Tarkin killed in this attack, because him not being in Chapters 2-4 is a little problematic, but maybe I can just pepper Tarkin scenes in 2 & 4.

If you want to keep Tarkin alive, perhaps you could use shots from Rogue One of Tarkin watching the completion of the Death Star. Maybe the laser canon was blown up in the first attack and they needed a new one. But if you went down that route I’d just stick to the window reflection of Tarkin, no in-your-face CG. You could even cut Tarkin from those shots and still use them. Just an idea.

Thanks phildesfr, everything’s awesome as usual. I noticed a few tiny errors here and there, hope you don’t mind me making some suggestions.

  • Copyright dates should probably be updated from 2016 to 2017
  • TFA Copyright date should be 2015-2017
  • Rogue One Copyright date should be 2016-2017
  • ‘Concept Arts’ should probably be ‘Concept Art’ (drop the S)
  • Bottom text is missing an ‘and’ where it says: “Dolby” the double-D logo
  • In the AOTC text, ‘including’ is misspelled as 'incluing’
    And it looks like there’s an extra space between ‘meant to be’ and ‘seen’
  • ROTS text should probably say ‘CLONE WARS’ instead of ‘CLONE WAR’ (not sure)
    Also there’s a typo where it says ‘final chapter is’ instead of ‘final chapter in’

Of course your designs are really awesome just how they are. Thanks again, I appreciate you sharing your great creations.

Thanks for your keen eye, Depheros! Always surprising to see how many obvious typos remain after countless checking 😃.
I have made the modifications, along with some others tweaks. I’ll be uploading the corrected files shortly.

No problem. I’m used to scrutinizing what I type, I’m horrible with typos. Anyways, thanks, can’t wait to make my own set.

Star Wars Despecialized Editions - Custom Bluray Set
Time

I don’t know if it’s been mentioned before, but now some scumbag made a crappy website dedicated to selling Blu-ray sets using the work of Harmy, njvc, phildesfr (and countless others). Every once in awhile, I’ll check Youtube to see what the next neckbearded asshat with a camcorder has to say about his new ripoff Blu-ray set. Sometimes I call them out in the comments. Some are misinformed, thinking that the only way to get them is through Ebay or some loser’s website. Others are just lazy and/or stupid. But anyways, I saw comments from this dude - either promoting his website, or thanking the uploader for buying from his site. It’s just really sad. Maybe someone could try to contact his hosting service? I’m not sure if that would do more harm than good.

Erasing the Prequels Entirely
Time

I’ve been planning out my own edit of ROTJ for a long time, I’ll be renaming it to Episode III, or just ditching the “Episode” part entirely, because the prequels don’t exist in my mind. I’ve also been thinking about just replacing the STAR WARS logo with the RETURN OF THE JEDI logo and deleting the title portion of the crawl. (I’d do that for ESB as well) I’ve seen mockups of that here in the past, and I looks pretty sweet.

Anyways, as far as the Force Awakens, the bits of Palpatine dialouge don’t bother me that much, but I guess losing them would be preferred. Maz’ reference to the Sith is fine. The word “Sith” was even in deleted clips of the conference room scene in Star Wars.

Hello guys¡ I recently watched ROTJ SemiEspecialized v2.15 and i noticed there are some “squares” around the ships in some space scenes that, for example, were not present when i saw Despecialized or the Special Edition. Do you know if it´s an error or is of the own film? and why is not in the other versions?

Those would be matte boxes.
