yea Greedo, Jabba, etc.

Also, that line from ANH is when he explains the tractor beam in detail.

From http://www.theforce.net/swse/anh/deathStar.html

C-3P0 describes in detail that there are seven main power sources for the tractor beam and that the loss of power at any single location will disable the beam. This dialog is missing from several of the video releases.

The 3PO line isn't on the Faces set either. It is the one where he says, "The tractor beam is coupled to the main reactor in seven locations. A power loss at one of the terminals will allow the ship to leave."

I'm still working on my versions, but I've had to take time away from it and not sure when I will be finished. I have the Definitive Collection with the Leia footage in tact. A friend also sent me small capture files of 3PO's line and "Close the blastdoors!". I really don't like the blastdoors line as the guy's voice sounds different than the one who said, "Open the blastdoors". For capturing devices, I have a Canopus ADVC-100 and a Leadtek WinFast TV2000 XP Expert. I haven't had time to experiment with the WinFast yet. I also have a Pioneer CLD-D703 LD Player which I really like. It doesn't have AC-3, but can be modified. I just don't have a reason to since none of my LD's have AC-3. I only own the Star Wars DC LD's and an unopened copy of A Christmas Carol with George C. Scott that came with the plater.

Anyway, I will keep everyone posted on my progress. I was happy with my original attempt until I saw how good everyone else's was and how much mine had dot crawl in them since I used S-Video. I did buy a much better S-Video cable and will test it on both devices to see if the crawl still appears. If it does, I will use high quality Composite cables.

I originally split each film up onto two DVD's and used uncompressed PCM for the audio. I really want to make dual layer versions with uncompressed PCM if the dual layer technology ever allows me to put the layer break where I want so that it will be hardly noticeable. I also hope the -R DL format comes out someday.

I forgot to mention that I plan to at least capture a small audio segment from my SE VHS tapes before I sell them of the snowspeeder spinning out of control and exploding in ESB. I'm sorry to keep mentioning it, but that sound effect is missing from both the Faces and Definitive Collection LD's as well as the 1995 THX VHS.

Looks like yet another kick ass set is on its way.

Thanks for noticeing! I just put that page up earlier this week and somehow I get three people emailing me with compliments. I'm not sure how you guys found it, but I'm greatful for your comments.

Well, hopefully my set will be kick ass. I was originally just making it for myself and a few friends, but it looks like this thing may become a bit more popular than that.

MeBeJedi, your latest capture looks awesome man. It appears that you took my advice about tweaking the color upon capturing.

"C-3P0 describes in detail that there are seven main power sources for the tractor beam and that the loss of power at any single location will disable the beam."

Well, what do you know? I just checked, and my other laserdisc has this dialogue! LOL!

<span class=“Italics”>MeBeJedi: Sadly, I believe the prequels are beyond repair.
<span class=“Bold”>JediRandy: They’re certainly beyond any repair you’re capable of making.</span></span>

<span class=“Italics”>MeBeJedi: You aren’t one of us.
<span class=“Bold”>Go-Mer-Tonic: I can’t say I find that very disappointing.</span></span>

<span class=“Italics”>JediRandy: I won’t suck as much as a fan edit.</span>

This one: http://www.davisdvd.com/images/starwars/sw_ld3.jpg

"WHAT YOU MAY NOT HAVE KNOWN: The 1989 laserdisc was quietly reissued with the newly corrected letterboxed transfer, completely doing away with the "incredible shrinking ratio" problem. This release, pressed by Mitsubishi Japan, features the same catalog number as the 1989 release. So how can you tell the two apart? This corrected edition is released by "Fox Video." Coupled with the 1985 audio mix , this could very well likely be the best presentation of the film

And in the 1985 audio mix...

"effects, new stereo'd effects (Jawa voices after Artoo's capture) and, most noticeably, the addition of C-3PO's line in the Death Star ("The tractor beam is coupled to the main reactor in seven locations. A power loss at one of the terminals will allow the ship to leave"). This new sound mix was used for every subsequent video release until the 1993 THX "Definitive Collection" remastering." Davis DVD Video Timeline

Actually, it sounds a little out of place. It was definitely recorded at a different time.

That's the sound mix I know by heart, as I have the 1992 VHS.

MeBeJedi and Zion, you guys are doing some great work. You're both true geeks at it's best! Can't wait to get my hands on both of your sets.

Did you retouch the lightsabres? Personally, I rather see them untouched. I like the way they were.

Damn those are good!

Haven't seen the DVDs to compare, but still, OMG.

Can you post some info on the versions your doing? What's the source for each? Will they be anamorphic? Single or double layer DVD? Is the Leia footage there? C3PO line? etc etc. Thanks in advance.

What is your process, zion?

BTW, folks: I'm recompiling ANH to MPEG right now. This can take 12-24 hours.

And and Rik, I'm sending you something. ([Tooth Fairy] "something wet. "[/Tooth Fairy]

Now, I have to decide if I'm going to include 3PO's tractor beam line or not.
