An Index Thread (and more) for Star Wars Preservations…

 
A new and updated Index 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

The Index Categories are:-

• Star Wars Preservations - Laserdisc sourced (many are from the earlier fan-made projects on the OT•com, + a ‘brief history of’…)

• Star Wars Preservations - from non-Laserdisc sources (VHS / VCD / DVD / Blu Ray, Film Reels etc)

• Star Wars Restorations

• Star Wars Documentaries (as well as TV Programs, Bonus Materials, Curiosities, Adverts and scene preservations…)

• Star Wars Fan Documentaries

• Star Wars Fan Edits

• Star Wars Audio Projects

Technical & Video / Audio / Quality Improvement threads & Projects

The ‘Which Is Best?’ SW Preservation Project discussion threads… (subjective conversations as to which SW Preservations are highly rated / liked / suited…)

Notes (& also General Star Wars Preservation Discussion threads)

An Index Thread for ‘Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art’… (and more)
 
or you can just scroll down through all the category posts in this thread… 😃
 

• doubleofive’s invaluable Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes resource thread

• 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.

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’ is not.

 

 

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 Harmy’s Despecialized Editions or TN1’s 4K OT Preservation Projects etc.

 

 

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.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

If anyone is wondering why there is a ‘Star Wars Preservation : 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:-

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

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 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.
