State of the art versions of the original theatrical releases ?
Time

Thanks !

About the Grindhouse editions, I have read they not “GOUT compatible”. Does it mean that it can be hard to find subtitle tracks for instance ?

And about the Despecialized editions : which ones are from the 35mm scans ? I have downloaded the v2.7/v2.0/v2.5 versions from the instructions on this forum : the READMEs do not mention 35mm films as sources. Are you speaking about more recent versions that have not been publicly released yet ?

Hi,

I feel a bit lost between all the projects, versions, etc… Could someone summarize the different versions of the original theatrical releases (of the trilogy) that are worth looking at ?

I noticed the Despecialized ones for all the episodes, and the SSE from Team Negative One for the episode IV.

Thanks

LEGAL MATERS :

  • Possession of fan preservations and edits is allowed only if we previously paid for the official material (eg Lucasfilm Blu Rays)

Well, even that is actually not granted, at least in some countries. In France you are allowed make your own copies from the movies/music etc you have on physical supports, but you are not allowed to get these copies from illegal sources, even if you own the physical support. Well, in practice nobody will be sued for that, this is just to mention. And anyway this is a potential concern for the end user, not the ones who are distributing the files.

Because “f*ing around with copyrighted material” is not a crime. We own the movies, we can do with them what we please, so long as it is for personal use. It is, however, a crime to sell duplicates of that copyrighted material, altered or not.

It’s a crime to distribute duplicates of copyrighted material, even for free. As you say, no problem as long as the work on the movies is for personal use, but there are legal issues as soon as it is distributed to third party people -whatever the way it is distributed. So in theory the fans who are distributing any original/restored/whatever version could be in trouble too.
