Some people call them Force Ghosts. I call them Midichlorian Swarms.

What I’ve found strange is that I really like the look of ANH and ESB in this set, but don’t think the RotJ looks as good as the other two - It looks good, just not as much of an improvement.

I especially found that strange because of the general concensus of ANH/ESB in NTSC, RotJ in PAL.

After this, will you move on to ROPUT (Rise of the Prequel Unaltered Trilogy).

Ep 1: laserdisc
Ep 2: Centropy bootleg
Ep 3: screener

And perhaps you should release Star Wars first, that way you can get any feedback before encoding/ releasing ESB/RotJ

Tempting, very tempting. Only time will tell – I would love to at least preserve TPM though!

Good idea, I’ll start with ANH first, paired with the '93 LD audio in LPCM.

I would love it if you could do a preservation of the Phantom Menace laser disc.

Finally just sat down to take a look at ESB, and it’s really remarkable. I’ve always thought this was the worst looking one of the three in raw GOUT form, and I’m floored by how much you’ve managed to do with it.

Any updates on an ANH crawl version?

I’m getting close to being done with my 1080p remaster of the 81 crawl. The LD versions would be of noticeably lower quality, but they are an option as well.

I’m currently working on a preservation of TPM Laserdisc, based on several LD sources (Althor, Andrea, AngrySvn) and PAL DVB broadcasts (Canal + Scandinavia, ORF Eins) found on MySpleen and Usenet. First results are very encouraging, I hope I’ll be able to upload something in the next few weeks.

Just watched your ANH side-by-side with the de-specialized…and I have to say even though there is clearly less detail in this version…it just feels closer to the way I remember seeing this movie. The colors feel better to me…maybe it’s just all the years I watched pretty much this transfer on Laserdisc… Thanks for all the hard work that went into it!

Bumpin’, but for good reason.

Considering doing a totally non-GOUT LaserDisc based project, except this time it will be DVD res only. Here’s a sample of my EMPIRE capture from the “Special Letterbox Edition,” which has been run through AviSynth with a similar script: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1d2pEwaEOq0neyLg05_F0iKYEm9gMSN2W

Clip was captured with a very low-end CLD-980 running the video through a comb-filter and then converted to S-Video. Footage was then IVTC’d and run through AviSynth!

If there’s enough interest for a project like this, I’ll make a new thread. It’s kinda redundant, considering the 4k scans going on and the digital GOUT releases, but LaserDisc is fun to tool around with…

I’d definitely give this a shot. I’d Use the Special Letterbox Edition for Empire and Jedi, and JSC for Star Wars, though patching in the SLE on that occasionally for Death Star shots that tend a little too yellow (especially Tarkin shots).

Sorry, thought I’d responded days ago. Yup, no shrinking on JSC.

Will make a new thread when the time comes, but currently, I’ve been talking with another user on this forum who has an X0 and a great video processor – the Lumagen, to be precise.

He has kindly agreed to transfer my discs when the time comes, but we’re not sure when that is, as he’s got many other things to attend to at the moment.

I’ve seen footage of the JSC ANH disc from his X0 player and Lumagen, and it looks f–ing amazing for LaserDisc. This will be the REVENGE OF THE X0, or perhaps THE X0 AWAKENS.

Excited to see the results 😃

Any chance you’d be persuaded to add The Phantom Menace laserdisc to this set? 😉
