The Dark Knight - EE Reduction and Original Color Timing
Time

Thanks for the update on this project since your progress is showing tremendous results so far and I’m glad to see this movie is in good hands here.

It just so happens that today I stumbled upon what looks to be a local screening, 3 weeks from now, near me of what I think is a DCP of The Dark Knight. http://www.gortoncenter.org/film/all/the-dark-knight

Tickets are still available if anyone happens to be in the area and I’m planning on making careful observations since I haven’t seen this in theaters since 2008 and I’m open for taking any notes for anyone wondering about color details.

I hope this isn’t too off topic of a post, it’s really nice to see this project making strides and we’re more than grateful to know that the dawn is coming for The Dark Knight and I wish for all the best in your endeavors to see this to the end!

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Despecialized Edition HD (AVCHD DVD9 & NTSC DVD5 available!!! SEE FIRST POST!!!)
Time

I just checked, and I can’t find it anywhere on MySpleen. Is it named something particular? I’d really love to watch it.

On Myspleen, it should be listed under ‘Harmy’s Return of the Jedi Working Copy v2.0’
Not to derail the discussion, but is there a thread here that specifies how to calibrate an LCD tv for those of us planning to marathon the OT? I was able to successfully burn SW 2.5 and Empire 2.0 without any coasters so far and then I’m gonna have the Jedi workprint ready alongside them so I figure we might as well know these things for whom it may concern. 😄

Burning the Despecialized to Blu-Ray
Time

Did you try the font cache method beforehand or is it a different error altogether? Almost every time I finish muxing one of them and go for another, I get a “can’t read stream type” error and there’s a terminal command that fixes that problem.

Does anyone still want those samples? I still have them in tact, I haven't responded lately since my harddrive crashed and I was worried that I had lost everything in it, but it's all been recovered safe and sound now.

The menus do look good, but in all honesty if we're going for authenticity in presenting the original theatrical version as close as possible, then wouldn't it make sense to not use "Despecilized Version" on the main menu screen and just save that for the bonus features?

There's no fair way to indicate what they want since most people that comfortably choose the official release probably aren't informed of the options they can pick from outside of what's commercially available in front of them or don't bother thinking this far into it only looking at the debate as entirely superficial compared to what they get a kick out of.

I can't imagine anyone that would side with the official release after witnessing what we've seen here except for ya know, G.L.

As much as I would also want to wait to see that grace us all, v2.5 is more than enough to hold us over until that faithful day which honestly isn't going to be anytime soon compared to the amount of time before we see v2.0 of Empire and Jedi since it'll rest as the benchmark for how far the project has come.

Normally I would be wary about any edit that used either the 2004 or 2011 video since the colors were so screwed up. But after reading more on the first page about how various sources were used (including 1997) and it was color corrected, I'm very impressed.

Is there a section where you have screenshot comparisons or examples of the differences or how you undid the SE shots. For example did you use any early VHS/LD captures as a guide to how the colors might have looked before the film faded as much?

I had heard about this edit before but I never really read this thread until today and I certainly don't want to read through the whole thing. (sorry don't have time.)

Pretty sure this is what you're looking for as reference while 2.1 serves as the benchmark for how far along progress has been made since then.

I know that feeling, being a 20-year man myself has me lumped into that awkward gap among the generations divided between those who are indifferent about the whole thing and people who are willing to take a step back and reconsider what's being presented to them. I had taken the liberty of experiencing the original trilogy as little as possible to avoid being brainwashed by the versions made commercially available so that my purest memories of Star Wars remain Despecialized.

Why is it that just cause someones got a diffrent opinion hes automatically a troll huh. maybe I just think the old Disco Wars movies are out dated. is this how you traet all new guys! this place is a dump full of dumpter divers!! i woudn't take the recrapified edition if someone gave it to me with $ 100 bonus!

If you want to be treated respectfully fine, but then what floats your boat or constitutes something that isn't "crap" or "dated"? It's one thing to say you don't prefer something this way, but taking a dump over what we love here as if what we're doing is wrong won't go unnoticed so sorry if you're offended by something no one asked you to be a part of.

Blu-Ray and other HD box size STAR WARS covers
Time

Putting Yoda on it would be a nice touch just like it was back in the day, who else to choose from is up to anybody really from Luke or one of the Ewoks. Definitely looking forward to seeing these covers finished and ready to go from what we're seeing so far.

OK, guys, last chance for any v2.1 suggestions you may have.

Harmy,when the stormtroopers are looking for C3-PO and R2-D2 in Mos Eisley theres a shadow of the floating droid from the special edition on the ground,did you remove this?.

You're in luck, as this was thankfully removed for good just as it should be. http://originaltrilogy.com/forum/topic.cfm/Harmys-STAR-WARS-Despecialized-Edition-HD-REMASTERED-is-now-released/post/613341/#TopicPost613341

That sounds about right, I think it's safe to say we can wait a little while longer for BD since just being able to experience v2.1 is more than enough to hold everyone over. I trust that covers most of the crucial details people would be most interested to hear about, unless there's something else someone would like to ask?

As far as I know, you can find torrents on public trackers - all you need to dfo is a little googling. And I'm running out of invites, so I'd appreciate if you guys could do that instead.

 

All of Harmy's work is on TPB.

 

 

 

Sssssssssssssssshhh. As far as we're concerned, that part of the internet is none of our concern or place of business to go telling people about. It's better if that wasn't even true at all so we can all be happy.
