It’s very hard to estimate the risk, but keeping things seeded would certainly help your cause. Another solution is just to get 4K77 (and possibly some of the other scans you are after) from Usenet. I can vouch for “free-usenet” along with portable alt.binz software. Not the fastest way - it may take three days or so - but completely free and won’t hurt your spleen ratio.

Same. I’ve been waiting on this since the dawn of time. 😃 If anyone would be so kind, I’d really appreciate it.

The DNR-Versions are now up on Mega and Zippyshare. There is a smaller 7gb version on Mega with the extras and subtitles, while the uncompressed 42gb version is in 82 500mb chunks on Zippyshare. (jDownloader is the reccomended program to download it with)

As usual you can PM me to snag these files, as long as you own Star Wars in some shape or form. (Pog form is acceptable)

Hi Bogle
How did you get on with downloading that 4k version, by the way?
Appreciate that it takes a while, but it’s worth persevering with! 😃

Does a Team Negative 1 Logo exist? If so I would like a png to use for a variant of my Trilogy Blu ray covers like this one:


It’s still a WIP and as you can see, I’ve already created a Harmy variant for the Despecialized Edition.

YUB NUB!

you could grab a frame from the 03-TN1_LFL.mkv file in the 4K77 release, or use the more plain text one that is seen before the title card from the SSE release… just some ideas until someone else comes along with a better answer.

Here you go - Team Negative One Logo: https://we.tl/t-pbH6NmEgWn

Thanks! However, I may change the color to all black to match the minimal design of the other logos. This is inspired by the CBS/FOX tapes after all.

Absolutely amazing work! So glad i can finally see the original theatrical cut for the first time, having only previously seen the 1997 Special Edition. Can’t wait for Empire, if and when that’ll be done : )

Hello, what’s the best way to watch the 4K file on a 4K TV? Can the 4K MKV be burned as data to a BD-R and played via a PS4 or X-Box One?

It’s actually easiest to put it on an external drive and plug it directly into the 4K TV and play it that way. It won’t work on a PS4 (overly restrictive requirements for 4K media, such as it has to be h264, which the 4K releases from TN1 are h265), and I dunno about an Xbox.

Thanks! Will take a look.

On Xbox One you can definitely play it via Kodi. Not sure about the native apps, but I expect not.

I don’t know if you can change to audio tracks when connect an external drive to the TV. When watching the file on a program other than potplayer or vlc, the language is automatically changed.

I have no problem switching audio or subtitles when it’s connected directly to my Samsung.

So despite being a mere video file playing on a tv via a usb drive, you can change audio with the remote? (I have TCL 49 inch 4k Roku TV)

Yes.

I wouldn’t know about a TCL TV but I’d be surprised if you couldn’t do that somehow.

My LG TV can do the same. I’d be surprised if your TCL could play the file but could not select an audio track.

Speaking of 2160p. What’s the recommended disc size for burning 4k?

4,7gb

Are you sure? When burning the Despecialized ISOs (with the menus), I needed discs that were 25GB or higher.

I think he might be “yanking your chain”…

05-Star.Wars.4K77.2160p.UHD.DNR.35mm.x265-v1.0.mkv is 48.3 GB (51,888,898,602 bytes) in size. That will not fit on a BD50, so you would be looking at something like a triple layered BD100.

BUT, it’s not as simple as a size of disc - to make the ISO you need to author a build a UHD 4K compliant Blu-ray, which this source video will not be. I’m not aware of anyone working on such a thing.

Forget burning it to disc, and instead pick up a high quality, fast USB stick (64GB). That will be your best option at present.

Or I can just change the mkv to something more fitting for a disc. I personally want physical copies for my film collection (I’ve been making cover art). BD100 would make sense space-wise. For this movie in particular, I’m going to find a way to burn it on a disc (if an ISO is never made) with the original English Mono Track only (as it was heard in theaters in 1977).

Yeah, I feel the same way. I like to have everything readily available on discs, too.

For now, I’m planning to take the DNR version at 2160p H.265 file .mkv file I torrented and use HandBrake to convert it down to a 1080p H.264 .mkv file at 23.978 fps. Then I’m going to use either AVCHDCoder or DVDFab to author it onto a 25GB Blu Ray disc (EDIT FROM THE FUTURE: this did not work. 1080p required 50GB blanks).

A 4K version like this downsampled to 1080p will still look amazing because the source resolution is so high. I have a 75 inch LG UHD TV and a Cambridge Audio UHD media player (capable of reading this file off a USB, I might add), and 4K discs hardly look that different than 1080p to the naked eye in terms of perceiving pure resolution from a normal viewing distance. The best part of commercial UHD technology, IMO, is the expanded color gamut conferred by either HDR or Dolby Vision technology, which these projects have not and cannot take advantage at present.

In my experience, there’s a barely perceptible difference in resolution between 2160p and 1080p (I have 30+ UHD 4K movies and have compared several with the 1080p releases); the most important factor is a high quality and high res source scan. That’s what I’m paying for when I buy 4K discs.

This is also why I just bought the new Criterion release of The Princess Bride. It was a 4K scan downsampled to 1080p, and it looks gorgeous compared to my older 1080p release of the same film. The difference is the source.

That said, if someone knows how to author the DNR 2180p H.265 file to an .iso or has a bead on a good 4K .iso copy somewhere, I definitely wouldn’t turn my nose up at it. I may try the ClownBD program, as suggested further up the thread (EDIT FROM THE FUTURE: ClownBD didn’t help).

Any experts care to offer bulletproof advice on how to do this (with any combination of software, not necessarily ClownBD)? If so, I’m all ears. (EDIT FROM THE FUTURE: DVDFab Blu Ray Creator did the trick for 1080p. I am assuming that DVDFab UHD Creator would author 2160p discs without issue)

Also, this is my first post in over 10 years or so. I joined this forum back in 2004 …

Another longtimer here, although I’ve been posting just slightly more frequently than The Dark Lord 😉 with some occasional breaks every now and again.

Would Windows XP on a computer that’s easily a decade old be a good way to download this and transfer it to a large usb flash drive or would a 2013 Mac work better? I’d prefer to use the old pc if possible, so any advice would be welcome.

I’d like to get the no-DNR 1080p version in a file format where I can easily play it back on a sony blu-ray player via a usb stick.
