An Index Of Projects & Help Thread for Star Wars Preservations…

 
A new and updated Index Of Projects & Help Thread to try and help members find information on, and links to, the many various projects, quality assurance/improvements topics, and ‘how-to’ threads - that have originated on the OT•com down the years.

Moth3r’s quality original Index Thread - Project Index: Star Wars Preservations
 

A polite request: that fan editors & preservationists keep their project threads (and thread titles) updated as to their status - whether their project is in the… ‘Planning’ or ‘Idea’ stages, if any ‘Help Needed’ is required, is a ‘Work In Progress (WIP)’, or hopefully ‘Finished’ & ‘Released’ - or even unfortunately ‘Unfinished’, ‘Canceled’ or ‘On Hiatus’ etc - thank you.

Please let us also know if you see any errors, broken links or if project threads / this Index requires updating - thank you 👍

Also, if you have any suggestions for additional projects or threads to be added, please post them in here. Thank you.

OriginalTrilogy•com’s Fan Edit / Preservation Forum Rules and FAQ thread

 

 

A quick reminder that the Star Wars Preservation and Star Wars Fan Edit sections of the site are NOT the places to bash on certain eras or aspects of the films, actors, film-makers or owners - or any perceived ‘agendas’ or politics thereof.

There are far more relevant threads in the Beyond the Original Trilogy or General Star Wars Discussion sections of the site to talk about this.

Critiquing a scene in the Star Wars Fan Edits section with the aim of improving it, removing it, altering it etc is perfectly fine. Statements such as ‘Disney sucks’ and ‘this film is so shit no Fan Edit can save it’ and so on, are not.

Fan Editors, Preservationists and members do not want the same sort of repeated comments and discussions in the ‘Fan Project’ areas - especially when they’ve already taken place (and continuing) in other more relevant sections of the site, as linked to above.

 

 

Bluto’s comprehensive and quality Guide to Downloading Projects from Usenet thread, in the How-To’s and Technical Discussions section of the site, may be of interest for those members looking to acquire certain projects.

 

 

ZigZig’s kind and generous Monthly shares thread may also be of some assistance for members looking to acquire certain projects.

 

 

RoccondilRinon has very kindly made an OriginalTrilogy•com animated logo for use with any Preservation of Fan Edit projects.

There are three animated variants of the OT•com logo available for download, along with a still image in .png format.

More info below…

(if you’d like to give credit for the above animations please do so to St. Kilda Design - RoccondilRinon’s art and design brand; thanks)

 

 

If you are new to the OriginalTrilogy•com then the following info may be of some assistance…

 
The Welcome to the OT.com; Introduce yourself in here thread is just that; a place to make your first post on here - and for more longstanding members to welcome new additions to our community.

Secondly, the About and Help sections may be of interest to you regarding this site and what the OriginalTrilogy•com is about.

Thirdly, the ’How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com - some info & answers to members’ queries thread should also hopefully be of some help as to many of the functions of the site, along with other related info as well.

The Announcements Section - including Site Rules & Guidelines, Fan Edit & Preservation Rules & FAQ, as well info for Signatures, Linking Policy for Downloads, and Plot Spoiler Policy (and much more) that may be of use too.

If you are having any issues with the site, have a question, an idea to improve the site, or would like to give some feedback - then these can be done in the Feedback Forum and General Assistance sections.

There are also several Index Threads pinned at the top of many respective sections of the OT•com - which may help members find various topics of discussion, fan edits, preservations and other projects etc.

To Join the OT.com Discord server! click on the link. There is also the OriginalTrilogy.com Twitter too.

’An OriginalTrilogy.com timeline thread - a history of the site and why & how it came to be…’ chronicles both the history of this site & also it’s continuing evolution.

The ’Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes’ thread by doubleofive contains many sources of information as to the numerous changes made to the Original Trilogy films over time - as well as serving as an insightful and comprehensive discussion thread and reference point on the subject.

And, the ’George Lucas: Unreliable Narrator & Time Travelling Revisionist…' thread attempts to highlight and catalogue some of the revisionism, altering of history and contradictory claims by George Lucas / Lucasfilm as to the formation, planning and history of the Star Wars films and universe therein.

Finally, the A celebration of the Original Trilogy | Some informative threads | How you can help… thread - highlighting just a few of the many discussion threads on this site focusing on countless fans’ love and appreciation for the Original Trilogy - and ongoing dedication in attempting to achieve a modern, high quality, official release of the unaltered theatrical version of the classic Star Wars movies.

 

 

Looking to acquire projects on here? Then please read this…

(and take the time to look around to see how this place works - and doesn’t - before posting requests for projects on here - thank you)
 
A fair few people join here for a particular the Preservation Project, Fan Edit, documentary, blu ray or dvd cover etc. We ask that those who do… also have a look around; see if there are other Projects, Edits or works of interest to your liking. To give the Star Wars discussion threads a read through, or those in the Off Topic sections. To have a think about becoming a part of the community here; and consider not becoming a one-time poster… asking for a link to a project and to never be seen again.

Many of the projects on here have been undertaken by volunteers or enthusiasts who’ve devoted considerable time, effort, dedication and some expense… to locate, preserve, restore & archive - or edit - films and TV programs in their best possible presentation. This is often with painstaking commitment - yet all projects are available for free; not to mention our members also improving upon & sharing techniques, knowledge, technical assistance, experiences - and a few stories, along the way.

Joining up here and then creating a new thread along the lines ‘Give me the link to X’, ‘Where is project Y’, or going straight into a project thread and posting ‘How do I get these?’ doesn’t really fly on here - and will likely be ignored or deleted. Taking the time to learn about a project - by reading through the project thread - as well as how to acquire them; simply making an effort to be part of the community here, and how this place works, even if just leaving feedback for acquired projects, can go a long way…

If anyone is wondering why there is a ‘Original Trilogy Preservation : VHS, CED & Laserdisc sources’ section…

 
Many years ago, when the OT•com first started up there were… considerable efforts by some members of the site to provide a quality fan-made release of the unaltered Original Trilogy on a dvd format (for free of course). The best quality sources at that time were Laserdisc captures - hence this section…

Information on laserdisc players, the various Original Trilogy laserdisc releases themselves, technical info on capturing laserdisc content and general technical guides were all limited - and often it was the determination and efforts of members here - along with trials and errors, breakthroughs, failures and successes along the way… which resulted in many fan-made quality releases of the Original Trilogy on DVD (with choices of PAL or NTSC, letterbox or anamorphic widescreen, multiple audio tracks, interactive menus, commentaries, bonus content - and the occasional ‘easter egg’ - or just a ‘straight-up’ laserdisc capture transferred to DVD).

Back then, few people had dvd writers, broadband internet, or hard drives large enough to store the films on, and there were very few file-hosting sites capable of storing such large files. Torrent sites were still in their infancy (and so slow)… so a Pay-It-Forward system, via postal services, was the usual means of distributing many fan-made Star Wars projects - all across the world.

Obviously since then, a lot has changed…
 

For a more concise history of Star Wars Preservation efforts via Laserdisc format on the OriginalTrilogy•com (and also background info & eventually an official DVD release)… this article, written in 2010, from the superb SaveStarWars•com website (by zombie84) may be of some interest:-

http://savestarwars.com/fanpreservations.html

 
 

Or you can also go to the last page of this Star Wars Preservation forum - and start reading through the threads - working your way backwards through the section 😃

I don’t want to toot my own horn, but I feel like these should be included:

Star Wars Laser Disc Audio Archive

schorman’s HDTV Star Wars Saga Preservation

Absolutely mate - my apologies for missing them out.

(It was bit of a haze at times compiling it - so there may be a few more quality edits, projects or worthy threads missing…)
 

If anyone has a project, edit or thread etc they would like added to this, then please post it below - thank you 😃

 


 

Harmy has put up a video on youtube - just to remind everyone that Fan Edits must never be bought or sold.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrwKZHv4OS0

 

Personally, as a member here, I’d encourage everyone to watch it and upvote that video.

 


 

Our likely best hope of a professionally done and released restoration for a 4K theatrical version of the Original Trilogy probably lies here - with poita’s superb The Original Trilogy restored from 35mm prints ongoing project.
 

The 4KXX Original Trilogy project by the good people at thestarwarstrilogy.com are also well worth reading up on and following - Some info & help for TN1’s 4K77, 4K80 & 4K83 projects of the Original Trilogy…

Bluto’s comprehensive and quality ’Guide to Downloading Projects from Usenet’ thread, in the How-To’s and Technical Discussions section of the site, may also be of interest for those members looking to acquire Harmy’s Despecialized Editions - or TN1’s 4K OT Preservation Projects.

solkap’s ’NJVC Custom Blu-ray Set of Harmy’s Despecialized Editions now available on Mega’ thread - with helpful and concise step-by-step guide - is a great option on how to acquire this particular Set.

I thought the above is also worth mentioning in here to help people find another method of obtaining projects on here.

Those are truly superb guides Bluto and solkap! Well done and thank you both 😃
