Preserving RotS Theatrical Version - Is there any interest?

Agreed, would you be able to upload that audio? I’d love to have it for archival purposes even if we don’t yet have good visual to go along with it…

I can share, but I’m not going to post it to the spleen just for one audio track. I doubt that demand would be there anyway. Anyone interested can send me a PM.

I need to thank Jetrell Fo for providing the decrypted DTS CDs. I think he must have posted requests for help all over the internet to get help making this film’s original audio available. Thank you Jetrell, if you are still around!

I completed this as a little side project in 2014. Last night I went through and updated the Theatrical DTS decode and added custom PGS subtitles. I’ll be posting to myspleen later today.

I don’t plan to sync any other Audio tracks, but this should be fairly easy for others to do as this project will conform with the NTSC DVD release. The Theatrical DTS audio does not seem to be missing the 36 frames after the crawl, as suggested by Andrea, so I left that as is.

I have not changed the color timing and this will basically be the same as my previous HDTV release, with different Audio and the wipe added back in.

Cheers

Althor, I’ll put some frames with the IR damage matte up on the share tonight.

Many thanks Poita. I should be able to play around with this and make a script in avisynth that makes dirt removal a whole lot smarter. As long as you have the IR to use as a mask anyway. Dirt on top of motion will probably still be problematic but getting it to hone in on only dirt and not a laser bolt, for example, eliminates half the battle I suppose.

I haven’t used any professional dirt removal tools other than pfclean. Perhaps dirt removal isn’t that big of a problem like it used to be for guys like you with all the right tools.

All the audio work that I’ve done for Team Blu has been synced to the 04 DVD’s. ANH should sync exactly to the DVD, while TESB syncs except for the updated Emperor scene, and ROTJ syncs except for the Naboo shot during the Celebration scene at the end.

Not popular enough for someone to upload it to a public tracker, and even if someone did I’d be shocked if it was still seeded.

Got my version, “TPM_AVCHD_ADYWAN” 7.85gb, converted it myself to MKV, hopefully that one is with fixed sound?, here is mediainfo from mkv https://hastebin.com/newutejuta.sql

I humbly suggest you download the 5.1 track from my LD audio archive as a replacement. It’s fully synchronized and it hasn’t been re-encoded, as adywan’s original was.

And where can i find this?

The Original Trilogy restored from 35mm prints

Poita, it’s great to see you back.

I’d definitely be interested in seeing the '97 SE scanned. With these three and TPM scanned, we would just be missing a couple shots from AOTC in HD.

I can probably donate an 8 or 10 TB drive if necessary. Also, if you’ve got the external drives, couldn’t you just disassemble them to remove the HDDs?

Return of the Pug (ROTP) - webpage and screenshots

If the glitch is in my source files, please send me a pm about it. 😃 It might be something that I’ve already fixed.

As far as the mono audio goes, using two channels is probably the best option, but the diagram should still be the single dot. This is pretty standard on commercial film releases.

Using only a single channel will force the audio to the center speaker. This is fairly straight forward when encoding to AC3 or DTS, but lossless sources like PCM or FLAC will require setting the channel mask bit on the file to 2. Without setting that bit, the audio may only be played from the left speaker. The disadvantage to using a single channel is that most users have better speakers for the FL and FR channels than they do for the center. Those users may prefer to have the audio coming from their better two front channels than from a single inferior center speaker. Many surround systems do not use a full range speaker for the front center channel. Using a single channel source, playback through the two front speakers may be difficult to achieve without altering the setup of your AV Receiver.

Achieving correct center-channel playback from a two channel mono source will simply require engaging pro-logic decoding. Since the Left and Right Channels are identical, the decoder will send the entire signal to the center speaker. The main disadvantage to the two channel format is that when encoding to AC3, it wastes useable bitrate and therefore quality on that second audio channel.
