Excellent remastering work for some excellent reviews. 😃

What can you get a Wookiee for (Life Day) Christmas when he already owns a comb?

ScruffyNerfHerder: Thanks!

I added subtitles for the AOTC review to youtube. I have an encode going for an AVCHD compatible mkv of the AOTC review. I still will need to do some chapter marks and sit down and give it watch before I get it uploaded.

I also was able to get an updated version of The Phantom Menace review with the higher quality sources up on youtube. I am not sure why but the 70 minute bliptv remaster cut will get flagged immediately but the individual parts do not. They also include the subtitles synced up.

Great job, BlueCopy. Looking forward to getting the MKV release when it’s up.

Oh even nicer to get them in full mkv container ! I’ll be sure to PM you to get a link for those. I’ve watched your EpI review HD remaster and it’s excellent. For some reasons there are a few low definition shots but I guess it’s because you’ve kept the puppet Yoda instead of the CGI version.

me too. maybe we’ll make the jump to 4k puppet yoda once the TPM print scan comes out?

I got the review up. PM me if you are interested in links.

MalàStrana: Most all the behinds the scenes stuff is SD DVD sourced. Some of the scenes with puppet yoda look more washed out then the blurays. Some match pretty well though. It can causes a visual difference when switching from puppet yoda frames to bluray frames. As a whole it is still is like ~80-90% hd so still mostly looks better.

Mike also does edits where the characters mouth movements line up with his voice over dialog. There are a couple of these that use puppet yoda to line up with the voice over. It would kinda ruin the joke if I used the CGI one.

I also made a silly little trailer for the Phantom Menace review based on the first teaser for the movie. It probably needed more work on the sound mixing and scene ordering/timing but using avisynth to make it probably made it more difficult.

Just finished watching the completed remaster for EP2!
My god BlueCopy… the sheer effort to recreate the original review so exactly must be commended.
All of Mike’s obscure video footage and all of his weird/funny edits he does painstakingly found or recreated.
All of the SD footage blends so well with the HD footage.
You’re probably gonna take a well deserved break after this one. But nonetheless I’m already craving the next review. I wonder are you going to continue to ROTS? i know its available on YouTube in 1080p, but that’s YouTube compressed 1080p. Your EP1 and EP2 remakes actually make the EP3 review look poor in comparison. lol before your remakes that was the other way around. It was jarring going from EP3 to EP1 and EP2 but now its been reversed!
Also I’m pretty sure Mike used the DVD for his review of EP3. I mean just look at this

Thanks again for all the hard work BlueCopy!

PrincessStarKiller: Yep I have already started on ROTS. I am not very far into it though. I was kinda working on an easier side project of trying to remaster From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of the Saga. I found the French LD had so much better detail and more of the picture on the top and bottom. I am trying to source it mostly except for the french subtitles and then use an English audio track.
Compare
The far right is the French LD. These are all the same frame of the video so you can see the extra visual information.

The whole plinkett remasters thing was really more work then I thought it would be. This is just part 3 of attack of the clones reviews avisynth script. https://pastebin.com/ybvy492E almost 748 line just for that. I am probably not the best at avisynth so maybe taking more lines then needed to do things.

I dunno how to use premiere really. I use gimp, virtualdub, avisynth and notepad+ mostly. I am just an amateur. I have a background more in software development so feel more comfortable coding then I do with a GUI most times.

The 4k83 project will be including a 16mm version of “From Star Wars to Jedi”. Perhaps you can utilize that when it’s out to get HD versions of those shots.

theMaestro: Thanks I look forward to the scan. That will probably be the definitive version for sure.
