I hadn't really thought about it.

Would you prefer SL or DL?

I doubt SL would be a good idea though because BE PAL MUFF Complete is 5.85 gb.

It would probably look pretty bad if I tried to get it down to 4.37 gb.

I didn't know there was another Building Empire.  If it has more stuff, then count me in for wanting it in NTSC, DL.

Ok I'll likely get on that next week then.

In the meantime.. I actually went ahead and made the DL PAL MUFF Complete into a SL version.

I deinterlaced, made it progressive, sharpened the picture and made proper chapter points (to match the NTSC MUFF Complete), as the DL PAL chapter points are a bit off.

Here are a couple of caps:

Date Posted..........: October 18, 2010
Availability.........: MultiUpload (also RS, MU, ZShare and HotFile)

In this release you'll find:

1 - The VIDEO_TS and DVD_ROM folders
2 - Addition artwork (.psd files) located in DVD_ROM folder
2 - This NFO file - Please... Do Not Remove!


Notes from ZeppelinRox:

1. Why ANOTHER PAL Complete version?

Well, when I had originally combined all the menus and extras, including the
DVD-ROM folder (containing artwork), from the original DL PAL DVD with the
updated Miami Underground Film Festival SL PAL DVD to make a MUFF Complete DVD,
I had left everything untouched so as to preserve its quality. However, it was
a bit too large to fit on a SL DVD. It is only 200 mb too big which makes it
even more annoying to me.
Also, when I converted it to NTSC, I had deinterlaced and sharpened the image a
bit and really liked the result.
Therefore, I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone - shrink it down to fit on
a SL DVD while enhancing the image with a bit of sharpening and deinterlacing.

2. Here is the script that I used:

TDeint(Mode=2,Order=0,tryWeave=true)
Spline36Resize(720,576)
FFT3DFilter(sigma=1.5,sharpen=1.00,interlaced=true)
converttoyuy2(interlaced=true)

Yeah, the FFT3D line made it slow as hell...

3. Tools used were mainly CCE SP2 (4 pass encoding including extras), PgcEdit,
and VobBlanker and MuxMan. Oh and MeGUI, since it makes it so easy to get d2v
files and simultaneously demux the Audio and Video streams.

4. Fixed the chapters to match the chapters on the original NTSC SL DVD. I
also added a couple near the beginning. I'm not sure about the chapters on the
original PAL version, but the chapter points on the aforementioned DL PAL MUFF
Complete DVD were not quite right.

5. I kept the bitrate as high as possible and pretty much maxed out a SL DVD
(4,698,534,486 bytes) :P.
If it's too big to burn comfortably, you may have to delete unwanted artwork
from the DVD_ROM folder or just zip them up.

6. To summarize the differences between this SL MUFF Complete and the previous
DL MUFF Complete. This DVD:
- fits on a SL DVD (duh)
- is progressive
- has a sharper picture
- has proper chapter points.

Please forgive me for being confused, but I am interested in downloading this off fanedit.info, but I'm not sure which one to grab now. I am in the US, so I would probably want NTSC, but there doesn't seem to be DL NTSC Miami version, only SL NTSC or DL PAL. There also doesn't seem to be a SL PAL version listed. I can play PAL DVDs but I would rather not have any speed issues, but on the other hand I want the best picture quality also. I noticed in the nfo above you mention the SL PAL is progressive and has a sharper image, plus proper chapter points - so would that look better than the DL PAL? Which should I be looking at?

Confusion is actually understandable LOL

Well no wonder there hasn't been downloads for the SL PAL MUFF Complete... it isn't listed yet. I could have sworn that it was... meh.

I will look into getting it listed that's for sure.

I had assembled 3 RTJ MUFF Complete dvds:

1. DL PAL: Which is untouched but 200 mb too large to fit on a SL DVD. Hence the DL label.

2. SL NTSC: Progressive, deinterlaced, sharpened, adjusted the chapters. NO speed issues at all. Audio is untouched.

3. SL PAL: Like the SL NTSC, progressive, deinterlaced, sharpened and has adjusted chapters.

I'm in NTSC country too but I prefer PAL versions (yay xbmc/htpcs)

Anyway, of the 3, I'm sticking with the SL PAL version.

The bitrate is not much lower (about 100 kbits/sec) than the original found on the DL PAL and I really like how it looks after the deinterlacing, sharpening and progressive encode.

My second pick would be the SL NTSC version for the same reasons.

 

btw, I'm about to finish uploading SL PAL and SL NTSC versions of the DL PAL Building Empire MUFF Complete DVD.

Both will also be deinterlaced, sharpened, be progressive and have adjusted chapters.

Awesome. Thanks very much for the explanations. Looking forward to the Building Empire also.

Ok it's all now online at fanedit.info, including the 2 new Building Empire DVDs as explained here : http://originaltrilogy.com/forum/topic.cfm/BUILDING-EMPIRE-PAL-NTSC-DVD-NEW-EDITION-NOW-ONLINE/post/452102/#TopicPost452102

At moment, the rar/dlc file for RTJ SL PAL is wrong (it loads the DL PAL links)

But for now it can be found inside BE's SL PAL rar file (which has both SL PAL dlcs)

Links are now fixed.

Just to be sure, the download size of each dvd is:

RTJ DL PAL: 4.37 gb

RTJ SL PAL: 4.19 gb

RTJ SL NTSC: 4.20 gb

Please bombard him and ebay with emails. 

He's claiming he found them at a garage sale. I've heard it all now!

We've got to get them taken down.

Your help would be appreciated.

The Demons are hungry. Zepplinrox's versions of Returning to Jedi are currently being consumed. Both single layer NTSC and dual layer PAL.

I would love to get hold of some ADigitalMan Extended Editions if anyone can help out. Monty Python's Life Of Brian, Love Actually Bloated and Flatulent. Ta!

Does anyone know if there's a problem with the first zip file in the Pal SL Miami version and perhaps can upload a corrected link?  All links downloaded properly but then extraction fails with the message the first file 001 is corrupt, CRC error (tried winrar and another prog to extract and file isn't reparable).  Many thanks.

By request of 20th Century Fox, my filmumentaries are no longer available on YouTube.

 

Sorry to hear this Jambe.  But it seems like the parent companies do a round of content removal whenever they release a new product.  Problem is each wave makes less and less information available, and society less informed.

Although it might be a dumb question, but is there currently any site available to get a copy of "Returning to Jedi"?

 

I'm desperately searching for a source at the known sources... Anybody a hint?

 

Thanks so much!

Thanks for the link.

 

I'm actually trying to get the DVD, like I downloaded for Building Empire.

It's great to watch online, but I'd like to have the DVD;-) Any hints?

 

Thanks!!!
