Longtime lurker here,
OK...I'm also in the "No Burn mark Camp"... the reason...
Harmy, did anyone say to you, "where is the burn mark in the opening
scene on the Tantive IV, where R2-D2 and C3PO are walking in the
hallway" after you released version 1.0? I don't recall seeing the
burn marks when I saw Star Wars in the theater in '77. Granted, I
don't recall keeping my eyes open during the whole movie, but I think
I would have caught that in the opening several minutes of the film,
after all, it was the first time I'd ever even been in a movie
theater, and this was my first movie. I was nearly 16 years of age,
and very impressionable.
I'm also one of those guys that remembers Luke throwing his (rope)
line across the cavern twice, becasue he missed the first time, and
no one will ever tell me that wasn't in the film...because it was in
there, in the theater I saw it in.
I want to personally thank you Harmy for this entire project. All the
hard work that you are doing, and putting up with countless issues
