I’d love to check it out. I like to think I have a fairly comprehensive knowledge of all the changes in Jedi.

I would love to help you out Harmy! 😃

I’d be up for it if you’re still looking for more sets of eyes.

Sure.

It’s really sad when the “creative minds” behind something we hold dear are also guilty of its destruction.

OK, so I have v2.0 cut assembled and I have the audio tracks from hairy_hen but I’d still like a few volunteers to check out a final workprint before I do the final release. Any takers?

Gladly!

It’s still rendering, then I’ll have to encode it and mux it with audio and then I’ll send the PMs with links and what to look for later today.

Just a side question - I was looking in the technical section for a thread about image stabilization in avisynth (with some sort of scene detection, so it can be used on whole sequences) and couldn’t find one, even though I’m sure there must be a few, so I didn’t want to go starting a new one - could someone help?

I’m definitely interested too.

What will be released first? Doctor Who: Devious, Harmy’s Despecialized 3.0, Half-Life 3 or Harry Potter 8?

Very much so 😃

Search your feelings, you know it to be true.

Would love to!
Have a good connection, good equipment and a couple of days off so I can give you very quick feedback!
Cheers

I’d love to give it a run through on my projector if you’re still looking for volunteers Harmy. Cheers.

If you could still use some people I’d be down. Really, you won’t be running out of volunteers any time soon.

Why not Google it? I’m sure Doom9 forums have tons of advice per usual.

I’d love to check out the final workprint! I’ve been following your updates and progress for awhile now and love what you have done so far.

I wouldn’t mind checking out the workprint as well. I never saw the first one, so it would be great to see the improvements in a side by side comparison like this.

(No need to get fancy with the soundtrack, I reckon: the stereo mix in AC3 ought to do it, to keep the workprint’s file size down.)

I’ll probably have time to check it out as well, if you need another set of eyes.

I used the 5.1 AC3. Uploading now at 80MB/s, so it should be upladed before I finish this post and I’ll start sending PMs.
I already noticed two issues:
the shot at 1:39:38 looks pretty bad and I’ve already improved it, though the quality will simply never be as high as the recomped SE shot.
The entire Yub-Nub sequence is a bit blurry and aliased but that was due to an error I made exporting it, so I already fixed that too.

OK, WP links sent - I still have to put together a few things, like making the Despecialized credits at the end, synchronizing the commentaries and making NFOs, so that gives you guys about a week to report any issues you find.

I’d love to help with this as well, if you’ll let me. I have a pretty slow week, so this would definitely help fill it. 😃

Regardless, I can’t wait to see the final version. You’re awesome, Harmy. I hope you know how much we all appreciate you.

I would volunteer but it looks like you have plenty of people already :p and I doubt I’d catch anything they all don’t, so I’ll just patiently wait for the official release. 😃 Best of wishes Harmy.

I did and can’t get what I found to work. HELP! 😦
