“People” want X-Men meets Avengers movies. Why would they need Star Wars? They have Star Wars. They have had Star Wars: CGI Song and Dance Edition for 20 years and they probably like it.

You mean we can’t have Terminator vs Alien Vs Star Wars Vs Predatror movies… This is a really sad day 😦

I recently saw the documentary, Room 237, (about people with their, shall we say, creative theories about Kubrick’s hidden messages in the film) and the tennis ball shot is a proper yellow! Wonder what the actual source was they used for this?

I watched this documentary last night… Yeah a bit of whacky fun. The moon landing conspiracy theory was my favorite one but i don’t really believe it had any factual evidence.

I think what can be inferred is that there is a personal message in there and what it is who knows? But the people and their theories all agree on there is more to it than you think and I also agree with that. But i am not sure i believe any of the theories even though they were quite interesting from genocide of Native american indians, greek mythology, Nazis and the holocaust and faked moon landings it was bizarre but also made me feel normal 😃

The orientation maps were cool i digged that too!

Made another astonishing discovery… Williams Vs Han.

In the sequence inside the office although there were 2 small snippets of footage missing from it, what I also have discovered is that the shots were re-arranged including the music and sound effects with the subsequent re-arrangement that took place or editing goofs. There was also a shot that was flipped that should not have been flipped.

This has all been re-edited and for me it was a very nice find and it’s like watching the film properly for the first time now it’s in the right order.

I liked it so much, I want to share the clip for history sake and to log the editing goof in public. I will keep the mirror maze under wraps though until releasing the edit.

Audio wise there is 4 edits.
1.Han says today instead of yesterday matches his lips too.
2.Missing Foley when Han swipes one of his own guards
3.Han shout from the Hong Kong Trailer Mono Sound mix when he knocks williams through the wall which can’t be found on the Mandarin or Cantonese mixes.
4.Added missing Base frequencies to Disco Room

clip below and please tell me what you think if you have any thoughts on it.

Conan the Barbarian TV cut version (20 minutes shorter approx)
Time

Came across a few interesting Video Links Check these out well worth it!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgWTFq8F874

Alternate VHS Trailer - Sound effects and music only

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcF5xhKU7EI

Conan The Barbarian - From the Vault rare original production documentary… This is particularly interesting because it contains a few music less scenes.

Well, this is enough to keep excitement up for the TV cut keep your eyes peeled folks…

Just to clarify the AMC version does not contain the alternate edits…

The best solution would be to pay a fee for the original film release to stream off a website which pays royalties to the actual companies that are entitled to payment for the intellectual property but which also unlocks fan versions or preservations and alternatives of said title purchased that can be viewed as optional in addition to the title you bought the right to watch and stream.

This would create communities around films. And users could share artwork and opinions / reviews so on and so fourth about the film.

difficult but that I think would be ideal.

No matter weather you own a physical copy you would if you like have to subscribe to the film via this streaming site to view edits scans or whatever of a film made by other fans.

There are a number of reasons this is all very positive with no downsides that I can think of because film companies get paid… People learn software tools for free, People can get job offers to work on restoring films or companies can look and scout for talent based on output. I think it’s a good niche circle and would be all round positive. And also build strong fan bases and communities around films that have large, small and cult followings. And also attract people even if they were not wanting to do any work on any titles but simply they follow both the original work and what fans also do with it.

Creation space surrounding films of all kinds with options and extras surrounding an IP and fun most of all.

It will also be a great source of Information for reboots, sequels,remakes and hopefully more original IP’s.

this would likely screw people like me that have bad internet!

once subscribed a download button is fair option but the player will restrict you from sharing it.

I would say make the site free to join and post and review and discuss a films merits and it’s shortfalls If you are a fan you subscribe this then unlocks your subscriptions to news about the title and fan base work from art, sound and video.

That is really all I have to say on the idea.

Rogue Zero - What was changed, reshot, etc in Rogue One?
Time

Can I draw attention to the fact they all have weird breathing apparatus on again… That’s not by chance that is definitely by design. I can’t help but believe the french translation film dude who claimed about the insectocide attack on Geonosis that Saw and Moroff and two tubes were all involved in.

But any way like I said here’s hoping we get to see it or even some of it and the original end battle. Original Eadu sequence original opening narrative. Original Jedha sequences. Original Yavin scenes.

Best new Star Wars film that I doubt will be toppled by any other Disney release but I would like to see them try.

By chance I met the Lady that cut’s the trailers for Star Wars in September (on a job) she thinks Disney “might” release Gareth Edwards version one day “possibly” and confirmed that he lost control which is pretty obvious and not really a secret.

But there is a glimmer of hope for either deleted scenes or an alternate cut to see the light of day or it’s being considered no confirmation but her personal opinion. She must have seen loads of it but I did not ask her any specifics, but I did say it was very much a curiosity and can’t help but wonder what it might have been before the changes happened and she understood this and nodded.

Anime is quite different to real footage but the best thing I think I can do is release what I have done and if someone who is more talented than myself can further improve on it or cares too… Then that would be fine by me.

just doing some final tweaks to it… Not much left to be done at all.

I don’t really want to digitally scrub the film clean either only color correct it and sort the contrast out which is 99.99% done practically. I am pleased with it.

Thanks for Linking to AVCHDCoder looks quite good…

From that stand point, he was burned with lava. Looking at Vader’s bald head shows the damage removed all his hair. Eyebrows are hair. So to me it would make sense for the removal.

It does make sense if you simply apply the same rule to all facial hair regardless of actual damage to the area. You are right that the top of his head is damaged but his eyebrow area is not, so even if his eyebrows were burnt off due to proximity to the lava, they would grow back.

I know this because of the fact that my cousin once had all his eyebrows burnt off from lighting a bonfire with petrol. He let the fuel sit too long before lighting it, allowing the vapour to gather around the bonfire stack and when he lit it, the vapour exploded and went up in a huge fireball, burning my cousins eyebrows right off. He still has eyebrows today though as they simply grew back 😉

If Vader had sustained the same kind of damage to his eyebrow area so as to stop them growing back, I doubt he would have a face left.

OT.com, the only place you’ll find people debating whether to keep a character’s eyebrows or not LOL! George simply shouldn’t have removed them in the first place, in which case we wouldn’t be having this discussion.

Now that is raising your eye brows properly!

The &quot;Is it in HD somewhere because I can't find it&quot; thread.
Time

Don’t forget about “Final Approach” the fist film to use digital sound processing rather than analogue also it has never made it to DVD let alone Bluray it is only on VHS and laser disc.

“The revenge of billy the kid” a B-movie UK comedy is another not available in HD actually pretty sick but also very funny. It is a very stupid over the top but great b-movie. Only on DVD.

Whatever I choose to use It will be extremely basic and totally bare bones.

I have little desire for anything complicated and loads of menus and stuff.

I might model it to be similar to an old VHS that just plays but has chapters as a bonus to skip to a scene that is all i am planning for. There will be no subtitle track unless somone cares to create one.

But cheers for the info I need one that will create DVD9 anyway.

I dare say you are more interested in ARSE than ROTJR I will send you a donation but I feel your are more interested in this which to be honest I can completely understand never the less ROTJR is something that absolutely has to happen.

Thanks Ronster. I’m not sure why you would think i’d be more interested in redoing soemthing i had already finished once over starting something fresh and exciting though.

I guess but i think there are a few small opportunities to avoid it being a complete carbon copy of your previous effort and as you say I guess re-doing stuff might be a bit of a chore or a bit laborious. Some changes will noticeably perhaps not re-use footage and be re-done. I also doubt you will use 2d images for ships and probably have 3D versions?

I believe it will be much better and refined on the second time around. Atleast that is what i think. It won’t be as exciting for you as that first effort but i think it will be much better this time around but i also think it might be less radical than the first effort.

The versions are different.

They have been tailored to appeal to different markets being western and eastern.

My edit caters to a western market and is basically the theatrical cut with a few differences. It is an attempt to create the most full version content wise.

You can search enter the dragon on movie censorship but it won’t point out missing audio and music. But will tell you about the differences between the versions visually.

I suggest you actually watch it and decide if you like it first before asking me about this any further… Seriously any more of this and i will ignore you.

Back to asking about upscaling and encoding if you don’t have anything to offer on this please do not reply.

Thank you

Yeah that is theatrical cut of the US version.

There is also a hong kong theatrical cut. Both in Cantonese and Mandarin.

Anyway… Please can somone give advice best way to encode if upscaled and best way for upscaling with DVD or alternative please give advice on best authoring software for DVD.

Alternatively happy to let somone else do an upscale if they want to of the edit or author.

Thanks
