Anyone know if Ultra-High Def is comparitable to placing the 3 dvd versions side by side?
(I don't have a HDTV but i just want to start planning ahead...)
(I'd like to see the first version he made, with them all on top of each other...i loves the video overload)

"HOLY CRAP THAT WEIRD wouldn't the audio be all weird though."

7 soundtacks - one with all combined, and 6 each with one film's soundtrack.

That's how I would do it....hmmmmm
MeBeJedi: Sadly, I believe the prequels are beyond repair.
JediRandy: They're certainly beyond any repair you're capable of making.


MeBeJedi: You aren't one of us.
Go-Mer-Tonic: I can't say I find that very disappointing.


JediRandy: I won't suck as much as a fan edit.

If it's called free time can I get myself some of that?

What Next?,,,

I don't think it's a next but it's something else and slightly related.

First person to figure out what Star Wars scene is being played gets.... nothing but the satisfaction of being able to pick out a star wars scene from video nonsense.

I'm fairly certain this is one of the first abstract SW Fan films. Anyone know any others?

Wow! 2001 meets ESB. And the end credits evoke THX-1138. Any idea how that was made?

It's not that difficult. Just put each of the videos on separate tracks in your NLE, and resize them so that all six fit on one screen. I could do this in a weekend.

This would be something fun to do at a later date - when I've had a chance to wipe some stuff off my hard drive. At the very least, I would sync up the first frame of "Star Wars" from the crawl.

SilverWook figured out the movie. What gave it away?

Yeah I just filmed a monitor playing my vcr tape of ESB. Then moved it into premiere and mirrored the footage horizontally and vertically, for the kaleidoscope look. I had been at the Chicago Underground Film Festival, and someone had taken an old movie and did a horizontal flip and merge and played the movie at 10x speed (since the movie was mostly made up of stationary shots with people talking, when played at 10x and flipped it made for a very odd visual, close to very fast hyper twitching), and it looked like a fun technique to play around with. Then I made the credits run 90 degrees from normal for the 'watch everyone turn their head' routine. They probably look THX'ey because of the resolution, i don't remember using a special font. The neet part (which isn't really understandable from just looking at it) is how the video changes as the camera moves toward and away from the stationary monitor. the camera wasn't on a tripod so i would zoom in and pan around, and that gives weird effects to the kaleidoscope end product.

I mimicked the first ESB trailer for the homepage... http://noneinc.com/SWAQTF/
Is that a catchy title or what...

Yeah, it's pretty straight forward alright. I might get round to doing something similar, just as soon as I have done everything else I can ever do.

Here's some more of ESB with a 2001-esque slant:

Hi-res, 5sec, <1mb
Lo-res, 4min, ~8mb

These were made with AVISynth, which might be a quick way of doing a six-way split, synced so the crawls and end credits started at the same point... hmmm...

Nice! The walker blow up works great, get an oddness when the snow explosions all seem to gravitate toward the center of the screen.

In the longer clip, so much of it is just captivating. the cockpit shots i think work the best. There are some times where your understanding of the old material overrides the kaledescope play. (when 3po pops up and some of the walker shots) But there's plenty of great moments where the footage looks like a weird machanical device transforming. thinking about it, shots which have an objects pass through the center (after they've just been slightly off center) give some of the more powerful transformations.

The person who's thread this started out as is using AVIsynth. The guy's not going to release a copy, but he's put up a bunch more pics.

Oh damn...that would be weird! I wonder which soundtrack should be relegated to the LFE (It would have to be one of the PT for me. Maybe AOTC?)

BTW, I am soooo going to do DE's trick with the films. It would be great stuff to have playing in the background.

But it's your sixth channel, so one of the films will have to go there, unless you combine two films into one channel.

"If you play normal audio through the sub channel all you'd hear is a rumbling,"

I know....that's why I would have relegated AOTC to that channel.

If anyone creates any experiments please post about them, i'm into glitch and other weird video forms.

If someone's knowledgeable, another neet glitch fx you can do with a compressed video file, is remove the key frame, so all that's left is the information dedicated to changing the previous frame. You get a really freaky slurring of the video. I talked to a guy who was able to accomplish the task but he said it was very time consuming. One method is by taking the raw video file into a text editor removing some of the first few lines (hoping their the keyframe) (but not all of the intitial text lines, you need to leave the beginning of the file to make it still recognizable as a video file) and then saving that. Sometimes it works, most often you get nothing. but the results are fantastic.
