railerswim's Despecialized Edition Set
Time

So I’ll be getting started on assembling and printing this at the beginning of next week. I’m currently down at PAX South so can’t really do much about it right now.

Disney had nothing to do with the OT. You should remove their logo from the disc me-think. And using an image from TFA for a OT box set is quite curious as well.

I put Disney on their because they own all of it now. But I’ll pull the logo anyways because yeah it just doesn’t fit or flow well. And I guess they don’t throw their logo on Star Wars stuff now anyways just the Lucasfilm logo.

As for the melted Darth Vader helmet, I find it symbolic of the despecialized editions. Paying homage to the and worshipping is what Kylo Ren was doing with the helmet. We pay homage to the past by watching stuff that is or is close to the original theatrical releases. Plus I just really like the image. And it can apply to the OT since Vader’s cremation was done at the end of RotJ.

Time

Currently a big work in progress but I’m aiming for a cool take on the 2011 complete saga box. But much much much darker.

I will constantly update this post.

Also these images aren’t exactly their final drafts. The final drafts will never be uploaded online as I don’t want people steeling my work and selling it.

Gonna prototype with white card stock next week and then I’m going to do my first run at the box. It’s gonna be awesome as I will be pressing art foil onto the outer shell.

--------- Progress ------------
1/1/2018 (1) - Currently Figuring out Book Panels
1/1/2018 (2) - Working on Outer box for now. I’ll probably come back to the book panels when I figure out extra features and pamphlets and stuff to design.
1/2/2018 - Added Discs
1/6/2018 - Added Outside cover for the “Guide.” The guide is actually complete and ready for printing. I’d have it printed but my printer just crapped out on me lol. So trying to find a place to get it printed.

I’m going to take a stab at creating a UHD BD Cover, disc label, and menu. Obviously there aren’t really any consumer friendly options for UHD Blu-ray authoring (probably will be years before anything open source will do menus). But I can basically get it prepped.

I haven’t really been able to be active in this community with my job this year but I’m dead set on helping get 4K77 on to UHD BD. I have constantly been playing around with jdobb’s UHD TS Muxing tool and trying to figure out what will get 4k onto a properly structured disc.

Obviously this would be easier with Scenarist (would have to win the lottery 4 times to get that one). There is also DVD Logic’s KITe UHD Authoring suite ($11,000 for HDMV UHD Authoring, $14,500 for Java based UHD Authoring). I am familiar with BluDisc Studio (from DVD Logic) so KITe shouldn’t be much different, so if people feel I’m competitent enough to do it and if people ask for it, well let me get some stuff done and added here, and then we’ll talk. I wish Adobe had kept up with Encore lol 😦

Good Blu-Ray ripping software and video editing software for editing
Time

Honestly get one of the drives that DeUHD suggests (incase you need to rip from a UHD source) and use MakeMKV and Adobe (I personally like Davinci Resolve as far as NLEs go, it’s fast if you have a decent GPU and I can do color grading and titling a hell of a lot faster in Resolve than Premiere Pro and After Effects)

Interstellar - ColorMatching BluRay to 70mm

Interstellar’s new 4K UHD Blu-ray has been zoomed-in and cropped on all four sides; much more than the IMAX shots in the Blu-ray.

I just picked up the Nolan 4K Collection, I’ll have to check it out. I have a one of the decent IMAX cells that came with the original BD release of Interstellar.

@Willarob, are you guys color grading the film in the Rec. 2020 color space?

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

So I did a half box for housing the trilogy. I used Harmy’s art. I’m editing the disc label right now because I actually did some menu authoring and re-encoding so I have true Blu-ray copies and not AVCHD.

Here are some pics: http://imgur.com/a/Vneb6

I can upload the psd files later. I just had to do the measurements a certain way because the Bluray cases I have are inbetween 11 mm and 12 mm in spine width. But they’re good cases so I suffered through the constant wasting of paper.

I used card stock on the final prints.
The Melted Darth Vader Helmet I took from a still of the Ep 7 trailer and photo-shopped it out and applied a filter (can remember what filter I used haha). Most of the blues are actually bright or actually purple in photoshop because they don’t show up well with a black background on paper.

Give up on it, partition your hd/or make a bootable usb thumb drive with linux on it and use imgburn and other free software that is out there.

Despecialized AVCHD Menu
Time

So for the most part, AVCHD can do a menu but you need menu authoring/designing software. I’m not where my big freaking PC is right now. But theres a lite version of professional software blue disk or something that allows for menu creation. But for the most part it is focused on BD not AVCHD. AVCHD isn’t worth making a menu anyways unless you are actually using a blu ray disk. And in that case just use the MKV versions of fan edits and unpack it using tsmuxer. Most free software is stupid buggy, then your low grade premium software is picky and buggy as well. Unless you want to pay big bucks for true professional menu authoring software just stick with free for now and experiment before committing a full disc.
