HI-Res Poster Art

I am looking for a hires version of the cbs box set art. The poster mashup one. And I know CrplHicks uploaded a version of the Vader in the star field, but it has so serious moire pattern on it. Has anyone cleaned it up?

Question about printer ink
Time

So about 6 months ago I purchased an Epson xp640 with the capability to print on discs and I couldn’t be happier. The discs come out really nice. I have printed about 6 discs with no issues. However I am coming to the end of the starter ink that came with the printer and I’m going to have to go out and buy some ink. I have read online that most printer companies are really just ink companies and that is why printers are so cheap now a days. I have been looking into purchasing refilled ink cartradges or remanufactured cartradges, but some of the research I have done has said that doing this could actually damage your printer beyond repair. Though other sites I have been on have claimed that using refills or remanufactured inks are completely safe and it is a ploy of the printer makers to scare people from buying third party inks. So my question is if any of you have bought third party inks and what the results were. Did it cause problems for your printer? Do you recommend buying third party inks? Do they hold up to OEM? Who do you use if you do buy third party? I just don’t want to mess up my printer. But I also don’t want to spend almost half the cost of the printer just for ink.

As it is in Restructured right now, there’s an odd key shift in two places where the ‘Starkiller’ track has been inserted. As well, there’s no reaction from the Resistance, so here I’ve tried to remedy both issues:

Password: leia
There’s still a discordant sound when Han falls into the pit, but it could be further tweaked.
Thoughts?

Just watched this. I would say it all looks good, minus the fade out from Leia to the firing of SKB. I think you should either cut before we see her or hard cut after she reacts.

Most of the problems you observe have been addressed in version 2 😃

There is the problem of the Hosnian System falling off the map before it is destroyed, but any mention of it after the briefing scene would have to be completely manufactured. I’ve been thinking about how to make them into a sympathetic party, and the best I can think of is building a scene during the assault with various shots in the Resistance base:

Taslin Brance staring at a computer screen (seen in the deleted scenes)
"General, are you seeing this?"
Newly recorded dialogue of a Republic official saying something like "You have our full financial support, but it will take some time to scramble any ships to help you"
Voice of C-3PO (over Leia looking concerned): “Oh my, without the Republic Fleet we’re doomed!”

I like this idea +1

Custom Slim Case DVD Box Set (Complete Trilogy)

oojason said:

That’s a very cool looking Prequel Trilogy set so far Jack - looks like an official looking release to me - most professional - nice work 😃

Really like the choices for Prequel art for the side of the box as well.

Am looking forward to seeing what you do with the Original and Sequel Trilogies too.

Thanx for the support! I ran into a bit of a snag with this box and have since figured out the issue. I will be re making the prequel box and the original trilogy box shortly. As far as the sequel box, well, that will have to wait until EPIX is released.
I had been trying to figure out what I was going to do for the 4th disc in the box but was having some difficulty deciding on what to do with it. I recently came up with the idea to make a documentary disc for each trilogy. The OT already has Empire of Dreams, so that will most likely be what will be on the OT special features disc with a few little other extras here and there. But as for the PT I am seriously kicking around the idea of creating my own making of fan film/edit that chronicles all 3 PT films.
Anyway, sorry for the stream of conscienceness here. Just kind of throwing it out there to see if anyone bites

H! Sir Ridley love your Fan Edit of TFA, i am working on a fan film and i need a opening crawl for my film but i have not find any good After Effects Star Wars Templates i am also using After Effects. But could you please share/send a copy of your After Effects project file to my email adress which is out34w4@gmail.com

Thank You!

Oh, Sweden. How you make me laugh. If you want a crawl template I have one available that works with blender and can easily be imported into after effects where lense distortion, gate weave, and chromatic abrasion can be applied later. But this is hardly the place to be asking these types of questions. Try direct messaging those you would like help from.

after actually viewing the video i have to say, that this idea is a good one. i would have to agree with ridley on it though. the execution isn’t quite there yet. but it definitely has potential. as far as it being something that is included in this edit…i’m still on the fence

Well, without actually watching this clip, I’m not 100% I like the Rey dream idea for this edit. The whole point for this edit is to restructure the SKB and I’m not sure the Rey dream fits with that goal. But as I said, I have yet to watch the video.

yes, the wampa is now working.

On a slightly more related note: it’s hard to get an idea of scale from the photos - how large was the hangar model?

9ft L x 6ft W x 3-4ft H. It was made 1/72 scale

Holy Crap! Is this for real?! That Wampa looks sick. I can’t wait to see it in action.

Good to see things moving along, Ady!

You spoke too soon! It looks like that certain user has found a new obsession.

Cd/DVD Guard??

I have not used sealer. I did have an issue with printing the inserts and such on my HP; they were really smudgy, so I ditched it and use a Canon to print everything. No more problems. Plus, it has been my experience that the heat from the player will “cure” the disc label…

I have trade that these sprays can keep the ink from smudging if and when they get wet and fading over time. But I didn’t know if the new disc printers and printable discs were more reliable in this aspect or not

Cd/DVD Guard??
Time

Now that I have a printer that allows me to print directly to a disc, I have come across this little product http://www.genesysdtp.com/cddvdguard.htm
I was just wondering if this stuff works, and is necessary, or if it will ruin the disc. The whole reason I decided to get an inkjet printer that would print on the disc itself was because I heard/read that the extra weight added by paper labels actually could cause a disc to become unreadable because of uneven glue. I just don’t want to buy this stuff and it metimorphisize perfectly good discs into coasters.

Also as a side note, this site sells digitrays for anyone interested in making there own digipak. That’s actually how I found this stuff.

Do you happen to know a guy by the name of jedimasterobiwan?

I think they’re likely as separate as Chancellor Palpatine and Darth Sidious.

I highly doubt that, I mean it’s possible bit i don’t see the motivation.

I think the motivation would be that since he’s been scolded more than a few times, he probably set up a second account in case his first gets banned. The sentence structure and language used is just too similar between the two posters. Of course, it could also be a troll trying to “emulate” Obi-Wanspeak but I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that’s not the case.

I think that is unlikely. sentence structure (or the lack there of) is not really an indicator. I think it’s just common for millennials to not have any web etiquette and a small vocabulary.

Given the restructuring of the film this project implements, the only way to remove Snoke’s identification of Kylo’s parentage would be to remove the first Snoke scene entirely. We wouldn’t meet him until a smash cut to after the interrogation scene. Even if it weren’t outside the scope of the project, it’d be a little tough to pull off at the same time as the other stuff.
But the nice thing is that this edit will be available to any and all whom would like to take or modify it further. That’s part of why I’d like to A) make it solid and seamless, and B) stick to the original focus.

Fair enough. Looking forward to the finished product

This edit is shaping up to be the best one yet. SirRidley, you’ve done some great work! I know this edit is only to restructure the SKB shots. But I would love to see a version of this edit where Kylo wasn’t blatantly called out as Han’s son so early in the film. I feel it’s more powerful to be left at the end, just before the SKB fires.

Also, not to rock the boat, but I have to disagree with the comment made about “those beasts” I love it and am glad you are keeping it in.
