Do you know the best way to get TR47 versions.

Are there any live torrents of them.


I knew you'd ask that. Unfortunately, I have no experience with torrents (I'm still on dial-up). I got my TR47 discs directly from him.

Kris, the way I would do it:

Progressive Scan NON-Anamorphic.
Uncompressed PCM soundtrack.
Chapterstops in the same places as present on the Definitive Edition LaserDiscs.
No menus. No commentary. No additional soundtracks. Leave the alien-subtitles burnt in.
Do not use other source material - just the master tapes. Ie don't try to splice with footage from the 2004-DVDs.
Compress video to fill up all the remaining disk space, leaving as little as possible unused space.

Use a 4th disc for the extras.

Perfect. Those would be worthy of "Criterion Collection" type covers, which I would love to design of course. You could make a second version for people that want the perks of the audio commentary, 5.1, anamorphic, whatever other extras - but a DL set using the maximum possible video-bitrate while still having an uncompressed soundtrack would be second-to-none.

im all ears right now thanks for the tips when i get home i have a few lode ends to deal with money wise and my employer is going crazy without me ...this should take about 3-4 weeks to take care of then work will begin my brother is lining up travel plans and we will be taking the long trip to get things moving also it is pretty hard trying to move tapes of this size arround (any ideas on transporting them would be great)

the vid will not be altered but i would love to add the deleted bigs stuff put in alot of the stuff floating arround is really bad quality but the 35mm cells are in great shape and when we did the feed on them in july at a movie theater in grand rapids mi it was almost perfect no shutter clat like the vcds and dvds you see on ebay and the audio was loud a crisp in steroe (dolby if i remember right)

this by far will be the best master source to use it is the same for the ldssssssss
also the deleted stuff i want to put in under a bonus feature and some outakes ect

please keep your ideas coming it helps me pass the time here and my mind on something positive

These 2 guys as you call them are mostly responsible for the production of the new dual layer asian set. I finally received a sample set today to submit my opinion on them.

The good:
Much better transfer than the 2000 LOOK OT bootleg set and no audio delays
Spiffy covers and inserts
Dual layer-allows for bonus features on the same disc as the movie
Decent menus

The bad:
Leia welding scene is missing
Audio is 192k 2.0 or a fake 5.1 track-no 1500k PCM audio-heavy fidelity/panning loss on the 2.0, although the 5.1 is somewhat stronger
Subtitles are frequently wrong or incomplete

The ugly:
Video is too dark (brightness/gamma) and the color is a bit subdued-contrast is ok
Deinterlacing was not done correctly, causing some lag/blurring and very visible interlacing, especially in fast motion scenes.
Artifacting is worse than the 2 DVDR sets, despite it being a dual layer set
Upward moving dark lines are very evident, suggesting old/dirty/poor quality LD players were used

Verdict:
6.5/10-Decent effort, and definately better than the old asian set, but it's very obvious this was produced primarily to make money.
I do not fault the US coordinators for this as I know communication was not direct with the creators, but it still does not excuse what I consider to be a shoddy product.

I am new to this forum. I am glad I found it. I just received the TR47 version.

YES! It rules. I am so freaking excited I can't stand it. They look great, sound great and work great (even in my crappy DVD player!!!!) Great job. Amazing job. Ordered Sunday. Received Wednesday. And the disc with all of the cover art is greeeeeeeeeat! Hopefully I can get Kinko's to print them out!

Thanks!

Those of you who own and know the "Anamorphic" DVD of the Definitive Edition LD, is it true that it´s missing the Leia welding scene on ESB?

Also I would be interested in hearing about if anybody else is maybe doing a new anamorphic version of the 93 LD source material?

Yes it is missing that scene (only a few seconds).
