Anyone have any clues as to where to look for this video from the Greedo shootout, OT version at a decent resolution? I had thought it was on Empire of Dreams, but no dice. I’ve tried using the shot from various LD transfers, but it clashes WAAAY too much with the DVD footage, even after colour correction. I ALSO had thought on a few viewings, that LFL didn’t screw with that shot itself for the DVD. It actually is now missing some footage at the begining, and at the end (where they trimmed out the muzzle flash when Han fires). Thoughts?

You'll just need to use the footage from the OT transfers - I have a transfer of the Halloween 6 P-Cut that used TWO sources also - YES it is noticable but better then nothing. I personally would rather have the VHS of the P-Cut so the lack of quality would all be the same - IF I had the VHS I'd just do some color correction (which the guy who made the P-Cut DVD did not do this!).

BUT it would still be cool as YOU do get used to the quality drop every now and then... THAT and it's the story that your into right? So the drop in quality would be very acceptable (well to me )

Either way it's AWESOME that your doing this and I wish you the best of luck!

so are you DE-SE'ing the DVD release?

if so, I'm going to be doing the same thing myself shortly and it might be worth hooking up so we have more than one pair of eyes catching the changes that need correcting etc.

also, share advice on filters methods etc.

Well, I'm working on sort of a compromise edition. The major stuff, Han, Jabba, are going. Mos Eisley is going to severely trimmed. Some CG stuff IS staying though, 'cause I like it , and I'm repalcing 3 seconds of an FX sequence with new animation, becuase it's bugged the HELL out of me since 1978 when I saw the film. Like I said, a compromise edition; I don't have any real specific objections to a SE per-se, just the mostly haf-assed way they went about executing it, AND obviously, the fact that LFL is reluctant to release the OT un-molested. I WOULD however be delighted to compare notes on how everyone is tackling the various de-SEing problems (and there are some challenges!), but I doubt it'd be easy to get a consensus on my version of what people think should go and what should stay.

A would think a compromise version is the only viable way forward now. This is what I think should go.

"ESB

See, right here I already have an objection. I want McDiarmid OUT of ESB. His performance is bland, adds NOTHING to the trilogy, and Clive Revil's read was better, much more mysterious and menacing. Don't get me wrong; Love McDiarmid, think he's one of the best things about the PT, there's just no reason to replace Monkey-Woman.

And, dear god, no! No morph! Just put Shaw back into RotJ. Although, I think we may see something in RotS about why this change is made; probably due to Anakin's spiritual or physical death before the transformation, he OBVIOUSLY returns in Jedi to being Anakin, so I can't see any reason to use Christensen at ALL.



Hey, Rikter, any chance you would be willing to share the shot I'm speaking about? Dunno if you've got it just on a tape, or it's digitized...I'm not familiar with this P-Cut at all
