Thanks for your efforts on this.

Out of curiosity, would you have any interest in making an alternative version that takes a different approach to this part:

However, I mostly used the original versions of the shots that were altered for the director’s cut to preserve HD quality (for this reason I’m calling it a fan edit).
?

I’d be interested in a version that uses upscaling, when needed, to keep shots with new CGI accurate to the DC, despite there being an equivalent from the original. Even at the obvious expense of quality. If not, that’s perfectly reasonable as well!

Right now the project files are on a different computer while I’m away at school, but when I get the chance I can probably render something.
Some people have already requested one, but I forgot to do anything about it. There are actually a lot more shots that have been modified then people realize, so it still would involve a degree of picking and choosing. Most people are interested in the finale shots of V’ger making the bridge. The biggest issue is that a couple of the shots run at 30 fps interlaced, so I’d have to find a way to interpolate the framerate satisfactorily.

In short, I can totally do it, it just might not be for a while.

Thanks! I agree that it will probably always be judgement calls for more minor things. But anything, for instance, that might clearly give a shot away as CGI and not a 1979 effect might be nice to keep included to represent the DC.

I would love to get the link, PM, whatever, so I can watch this! I own the Theatrical Cuts on Blu-Ray but I really believe that the DC is the best version for this one, Wrath of Khan and The Undiscovered Country! Thanks in advance people! Live long and prosper!

Okay, I rendered out a purist version that includes most all of the DC changes. I have included most all of the shots altered for the director’s cut DVD, from major shots like the V’ger sequence all the way down to re-colored viewing screens. It’s easier to list the shots that weren’t included here (these are more minor omissions than it might look like at first glance).

PM me if you want a copy.

Oh Wow just found out about this! Huge Trekker and fan edit fan here. Could someone please please direct me to where I might be able to see this? I don’t have a spleen 😦

I don’t mean to be critical, but you missed a hell of a lot of shots from the Director’s Cut. All the redone shots of the crew exiting from the top of the saucer and walking accross the bridge of hexagons. it seems like every shot I went to check was still the original and not the DC version. So this isn’t really the director’s cut, but a mix.

Yeah, that’s intentional, (and why I call this a fanedit in the readme). I was more interested in the editing in the DC than the new effects, particularly when there were shots that already looked good in the theatrical version.

That being said, I just rendered out a “Purist Edition” that has most all of the changes (though they are limited to SD). People can PM me for a link if they are interested.

Just Fast watched this Version and im a bit disapointed that some of the moments i most loved about the DC are missing.
For example the Spaceport scene misses the TOS Shuttle starting.
Then at the end of the Movie when the crew stands on the Sourcer section there is that cool new rendered Sourcer in the Directors Cut that replaces the DAMM UGLY matepainting in wicht the Sourcer looks like a damm Hill.
I expected an Upscaled Version of the Directors Cut, but this is a complete Re-Edit and NOT the DC.
Is there any Plan to add all stuff from the DC to make this a REAL DC HD Version?

Anyway, Thanx for doing this. I know its a lot of work.

Yeah, I made a ‘purist’ version which has all the shots you want. It’s among the links I sent you.

It’s synced with the DC, so any subtitles should sync after a 25fps to 23.98fps conversion. Audio should sync similarly. If you could pm me copies of the German language content I could add it to later versions.

What Format do you need the German Audio in, and do you recoment any free tool to Rip it from the Original DVD ?

The audio would be great in the original dolby digital format. I would use MakeMKV to rip the dvd to a mkv (be sure to select all the audio tracks). You can then use MKVToolNix to deselect the video track in that MKV file and make a new .mka file with just the audio tracks. If it’s too much a pain to do don’t worry about it.

I will try to do it soon.
I now watched the Purist cut and love it. But i found a scene where the Audio (Both 5.1 and 2.0 ) are async for one scene.
When Kirk is beamed to the Space Station from wich he is transported via shuttle to the Enterprise in spacedock, just after Kirk left the Transporter beam and askes Scotty why the transporters of the ship arent working, it starts to async.
Scotty starts talking about the refit and then the audio dosent fit the Video at all.
It syncs again shortly after both entered the shuttlecraft.

Another problem i had, were the chapters. On my PC they are shown in my player and correctly Named.
However on my real BD Player i cant skip chapters at all !?

Thanks for you work on this Movie!!!

OK…question…if it has the added shots that he described, why is the time exactly the same? (I know that one of them is a replacement as opposed to an addition) Just curious.

Oh my god, that’s a huge error. I never actually proofed the purist ed, as I assumed the only areas I had to look at were the changes. Congrats on being the first person to watch it and report back I guess. I’ll have an updated version up soon.

That’s probably just the BD player not recognizing a newer MKV function. You could try updating the player’s firmware or remuxing the file in an old version of MKVToolNix. Not much I can do.

Both versions are in sync with the DC dvd (the editing is matched frame-by-frame). The added effects shots are in both versions. Replacement effects shots are sometimes only in the purist edition and the other version uses the HD theatrical version of the shot.

Thanks to Runner76 for finding a pretty large error in the purist edition (I had never actually proofed through all of it). I have made a v2 that fixes this error in addition to making more of the footage HD by compositing DVD footage over the HDTV footage. Anyone who has ever Pm’ed me on OT.com should have updated links in their inbox. If there are still errors, let me know.
