I want to do a reconstruction of the original theatrical version of the old trilogy, for those how doesn't need HD. And even more: I reconstruct a rare TV-Version, which was (like the most TV-broadcast of cinema-movies) zoomed from the original 2,35:1 aspect to 1,78:1 aspect, which fits the modern 16:9 TV-screen.
I'm using an old Video2000-Tape record from the German TV-Premier from 1990, from the channel Sat1, and a rare Bootleg-VHS-Transfer of some original 35mm-films from british cinemas, made on the late 1980s. Both PAL (and have the same 1,78:1 aspect) and the DVD will also be PAL but real 16:9 picture. For help and quality-upgrade I use the official PAL GOUT DVDs and for some color-correction Harmy's HD version.
If anyone wants to join and have advices, please write me. I'm working on an apple iMac and for DVD-editing I use "DVD Studio Pro", but I'm not very good at it. If anyone could tell me, how to make it perfect, it would be nice. For Video-Editing I don't know if I should use Final Cut or Adobe Premier. I know Final Cut, but not 100%, and I'm jut beginning to learn Adobe Premiere.
It also would be great if someone could tell me how I make a perfect digital transfer of my Video2000 Tape, because I'm not happy with the Quality I'm getting out of it (remember: I just need SD-Quality for PAL DVD, but without blurry parts).
