I'm getting these files with the following message from the torrent.

 

padding_file_12_if you see this file, please update to BitComet 0.85 or above

 

I'm using Azureus (newest version called Vuze) so I have no idea if this will be a problem when it comes to burning a disc? Anyone know if this will cause a problem?

 Same here, I'm also using Vuse and seeing the same thing. Hopefully it's not a problem.

I would not worry about the padding file messages as they werer evident on the Highlander releases and did not create a problem.  Bitcomet is simply trying to get you to upgrade and use Bitcomet. I do not like the new version (Bitvomet) therefore I will not upgrade.

As for Hiphats? I am confused as to how you are involved in this release? We are really thankful that you have a desire to get a single layer out to everyone but lets see how well the dual layer goes over first.

Thanks

 

Thanks All!

Well,

 

I was hoping if there is a dual layer version you can resend me, I'll see if it works with my player, and if so, I'll be happy to help get this version out much faster since my DVD-ROM is supposed to accept dual layer discs. 

 

Thanks.

Fanfiltration is the one that inspired the edit that PHINESBG created. 

Thanks for the kind words Fanfiltration!

Okay, I got it this morning. It burns on Nero5 with no problems.

 

I'm only halfway through, but I like what I see and hear so far! The quality is great. The re-inserted deleted scenes don't perfectly mesh (as expected), but decent job! I like the blue within blue eyes... that always bugged me about the unfinished scenes from the Alan Smithee cut.

Some people have been emailing us requesting a SL DVD for the Dune: The Third Stage Edition release. Some have emailed us and expressed interest in creating one but were unable to do so. We do not have a problem with anyone authoring a disc, if anyone who wants to create a two-disc set out of the dual layer have at it

Right now we are working on another project and it demands our full attention. We have planned on creating a two-disc set later on down the road but right now it's difficult to do so. One thing we ask is that you not alter the layout to much.

 

Thanks!

We apologize that some people do not have Dual Layer burning capabilities.

 If anyone is going to author one et us know before you do so, thanks

Hey, gang!

I finally managed to get a single-layer version of the new DUNE, and I glanced through all this a little more thoroughly.  Again, to the people who did this, a great job of editing!

 

There are a few things I wish to note...there were several scenes in the film that had music that had originally been intended fo the film but replaced in the theatrical version.  Scenes in question: where Dr. Kynes takes Paul and co. on a tour and seeing one sandship eaten up by the worm, the death of Duke Leto, and where the Fremen takes Paul underground to see water.  All these scenes with the score proper can be found in the Allen Smithee expanded version.  Also the new version presents the theatrical version of the sequence where the Baron is brought before the Emperor, whereas the TV version presents a more comprehsive version where we see the gang from the Baron's point of view.

But other than that, as I said before, this is the best version of DUNE I have seen done by anyone, and truly represents the film that might have been.  All the anomalites of the Smithee version are gone.

 

If you are interested in the single layer version without having to go through the long wait of torrents, etc., hit me up with a PM and we'll go from there.

You won't want to miss the Third Stage version of DUNE.  Bar none!

How does it compare to the Reconstructed Workprint version?

Hey Hiphats! Thanks for the props!

Just wanted to touch on the things you mentioned:

Hiphats is correct that the TV version has some of the original score in some places. Another example is the final knife fight between Paul and Feyd.

The reason we didn't use those bits was because although those pieces of music were scored with the intent to be used in the film, Lynch did not necessarily approve those bits of music to be used. We used the music that was seen in theaters, because Lynch put his name on those pieces. In some places, you can see why. The bit of music when Leto dies is much more powerful in the theatrical version. Same for the water scene.

We didn't use the TV Baron POV shot for two strong reasons: 1. We would have to lose the closeup of the Emporer that was used in the theatrical version, and we weren't going to do that! 2. The most important reason: In the theatrical cut, when the Baron looks down and sees the decapitated head of Rabban, it's a surprise to him, and to us, at the same time. That brief POV outtake that was used in the TV version spoils that surprise by showing the head too early. From a dramatic point of view, it was wise for the theatrical editors not to use that shot, IMO. We do, of course, retain all the extra dialogue in that scene, however.

Thanks again!

Hey Neon! I like ADM's version, too!  Check them both out and see!

Here's some examples of things that are unique to this edit:

1. Reconstructed Workprint (RW) has the longer version of the Irulan Prologue. In the Third Stage Edition (TSE), we didn't reintegrate it.


2. TSE digitally recolors the eyes blue.


3. TSE shows the Emporer removing his cloak.

4. Navigator scene: TSE has the theatrical music and ambient background sound. This is true for many more scenes throughout the movie.

5. RW has the Extended Cut music when the Navigator leaves and Mohiam reports back to the Emporer. TSE music is from a TV version so the placement of music is different.

6.  TSE has the extended dialogue (reshuffled a bit) during the fighter robot scene.

7. RW has the extended shot of Duke Leto prepping himself in the scene where Paul first arrives to talk to him. TSE doesn't use this shot. RW also uses the Extended Cut music here. TSE uses the theatrical music (Leto's theme), but retains the extra dialogue.

8. RW uses the theatrical version of Leto sealing the Kanly tube. TSE features some of the footage of Leto prepping the note itself (without the TV narration).

9. When the Baron says "This is what I'll do to the Duke and his family."  TSE uses a dissolve to transition to the next scene.

10. TSE does not show the Extended Cut shot of the Atredies ship before showing Leto, Jessica, and Paul walking to stand in front of it, because this  shot shows them already standing there before they approach it!

11. RW uses some of the Romallo prologue narrative as a voiceover when the Fremen walk up and examine Jessica and Paul with binoculars.  We simply show the Fremen examining them without any narration (no TV narration, either), as it was in the script.

12. After Gurney plays his baliset, TSE removes the sound of applause that was heard on the TV version, because the widescreen clearly shows that nobody is clapping! It was just dubbed in by the TV editors.

13. During the extra footage of Paul talking to Jessica about his waking dream, TSE removes the line of "I curse the day you awakened this within me." Thus, our version reads more like the 7th draft of the script. We removed this line because we felt this line takes away from his subsequent statement "Father, I promise someday the Sleeper will awaken."

14. TSE reintergrates the scene of Paul crying (aka "giving water to the dead").

15. TSE doesn't show the second TV take of Romallo saying the prophesy. This was just redundant television time filler.

16. The scene of the water being extracted from Jamis's corpse is placed after the shot of the Fremen carrying Jamis's body in TSE. All other versions (including the Extended Cut DVD) place this scene before it!

17. During the Jamis corpse water extraction scene, the TSE trims the embarrassing editing glitch where we see a Fremen reach up to a control switch twice.

18. When Paul sees the Fremen cache of "millions of decaliters" of water, TSE retains the theatrical dissolves. The TV version  mangles these dissolves for no reason.

19. TSE restores some of the deleted dialogue of Rabban talking about Leit-Kynes before ripping up his Fremen suit.

20. As stated above, when the Baron enters to speak to the Emporer, TSE uses the theatrical closeup of the Emporer rather than the TV POV shot, as this spoils the surprise of the decapitated Rabban.

21. TSE modifies the shot of the Emporer's reaction when Thufir commits suicide by pulling out his own heartplug, because it's the same wincing reaction shot we see later when Paul kills Feyd.

There's tons more differences, but there's no need to spoil ALL the surprises. Check them both out!

IMHO, the visual editorial changes in the TSE actually enhances and helps the story rather than subtract from it, as the Smithee version did.  The flow is certainly a dozen times better, and music changes notwithstanding, the TSE is a much better film than the previous cuts.  I am not bothered by any changes that were made to make the TSE an enjoyable experience.  I hope you won't be bothered either.  I urge you to get this cut.

Well, I got through the whole thing... pretty impressive job!

 

Of course, the deleted scenes are still pretty rough (especially the fight with Jamis) and could do with some more work on them.

 

I noticed a few places where the Fremen blue eyes aren't present... like there's several closeups of Fremen firing their weirding modules during a raid in the sand. I think it's the scene where they discover Gurney amongst the smugglers in the desert (I could be confusing it with the scene where they attack the Harkonnen troops in the desert). Basically during those yellow tinted desert shots normally in mid to close shots everyone has blue eyes, but there's some guy on the left that doesn't have them (behind Paul).

The eyes could have been a little more blue during the "history will call us wives" scene too.

 

Anyway, I'm sure it's a pain keeping track of them all (at least Paul's eyes stay consistently blue, and more Fremen have them than did before). But this is the best fan edit of Dune thus far! I can't wait to show it to some of my friends...

Hello, I'm new to this forum and fan preservation/fan edits, and as a fanatic movie buff I'm really anxious to get my hands on some of them. I'm amazed by the dedication of all the people who are doing so much effort to preserve these gems. Really, this is important work, and it's just sad that antiquated licensing laws are in the way of freely distributing them. Just my 2 cents :)

Anyway, I hope I'm not breaking any rules by asking if there is someone who could help me out and maybe pm me some pointers on how to aquire these. Thanks!

Likewise I'd love to get hold of the dual-layer version of this. I've only ever seen the theatrical edition and this looks incredible!

I'd be grateful if someone could PM me if they have the DL version.

 

Thank you,
