I concur... Don't rush it. Make it the best it can be.

Well I planned for the X-Mas launch but things keep friggen commin' up!!! I had people over during the weekend and during all the commotion water spilled into my keyboard and ruined the hell out of it. So now I'll have to see what I can do without the keyboard until Friday. I worked today and I work tomorrow, so I'll try and finish the audio ripping (I have the AVI) of TPM on thursday so that on Saturday or Sunday I can work on it. (I'm going out dancing this Friday with my friends and Saturday I've got an appoitment out of town). I'll just go with whatever time I have now. If it gets done on Christmas it will, if not it won't.

In terms of Special Features Here's What I would like:

1. Commentary

2. Prologue Deleted Scene

3. English Subtitles (I'm at 50/50 here)

4. French Subtitles (MAYBE - like 25% chance haha)

 

 

Also, if I end up spending a while on the DVD I will release a trailer or two which would be included on the DVD.

 

 

Anyone have ideas for DVD intro, main menu (and preview shots), Special Features Menu (Deleted Scene and Trailers), Chapter Selection, Settings (Commentary, Subtitles)

Don't commit to a deadline, get it done in whatever time it takes. Just chime in every now and then so that people know you are still alive.

French Subtitles. Haha. Is that cuz you're Canadian, and thus it's the law? ;)

Not the same thing, but you know, I haven't heard the French dub of the OT in years, since I watched it on Radio Canada way back before I had a VCR. They did an awesome job with the casting, especially with Vader! Have you watched it in French, A-Man? I think I asked TMBTM if the old dubs I saw on TV were the same as the ones on the 2004 discs, but I forget what he said. I would assume they are. I think he did say that Chewie is no longer called Chico in ANH. :p

That's a good idea adding the prologue as a deleted scene rather than in the actual edit.

Well I'm fluent in French so I thought I'd might aswell help someone out with the french subs. Ripplin, any suggestions on the menu screens and intros? If anyone is good at edited, try a stab at it. Either a manip/photoshop image or a video.

I'm fluent in French too, but pretty rusty, as I've barely used it since 1995. (last year of high school) Maybe one true conversation in all this time.

I'll think about menus and such and chime in if anything significant comes to mind. :)

I haven't been able to successfully retreive the ac3 track from the ifo track lately. I'll try copying the files to my internal HDD first and then try again. If that doesn't work I'll try another program.

This might seem like a slightly bonkers suggestion but it might be interesting to remove most of the duel from ANH out of that section of the project.

Just have the beginning and the end and later revisit the scene as Anakin/Vader remembers the ROTS duel and splice the two together both in sepia tones (as at this point both will be past events).

That way you would have the two events echo off each other without spoiling the ESB reveal.

If your trying to grab the track from the official DVD, I strongly suggest DVDFab to copy the DVD to your HDD, and then you can grab the ac3 track from there with PGCdemux. This method has hardly ever failed me.

I wanted to keep the AOTC duel mostly as a teas to Yoda. Yoda's fight is cut, similar to Gandalf's in FOTR. ESB (which focuses much on Yoda, the great warrior) will open to the battle just as TT did to Gandalf's.

That's what I did and I still got the problem. ;) It worked for ANH, ROTS and AOTC just not for PM.

Reborn was abandoned due to a number of factors — among others, the scale of the project was ballooning and it would have been a bigger undertaking even than Adywan's Revisited saga, which I'd venture to say is probably the most ambitious fan-edit we've seen yet. Renascent is based on the same concept and some specific ideas from the Reborn project, but it's A-Man's work — InfoDroid and TJDavis1138 have moved on to other things.

Hey A-Man, ignore rcb's countdown, huh? ;)

Yeah there is no possible way I can get this done for the 25th. I have a crap load of papers and assignments due by mid-December. Once I go into my break, I'll be trying as hard as I can to get it done and ready to go. The first thing to do after the final render is to reformat my computer and possible purchase some RAM if I can afford it, if not then I'll just make do. Next I'll make some previews while I work on the DVD and then eventually release the DVD and Xvids together.

I've been working on it today. I have work tonight so I'll get back to the edit after work. I'm just about done now. Shouldn't take too much longer.

Left to do I must:

1. Finish with the sepia fading

2. Insert the PM scenes

3. Rework the "dark twist" to the music during the remote training sequence

4. Removing the droid factory sequence (including the droid-head business during the battle) and emplacing their capture and maybe trial with Dooku

5. Re-work the music transition from Obi-Wan's duel to the slow-mo sequence

6. Re-Working the Millenium Falcon's lift-off

7. Add in a quick scene of PM after Obi-Wan's death

8. Very fast flashes come to Vader's mind once he says "a presence I've not felt since..."

9. Check all of the transitions

 

Recent Work:

Cut out the prologue

Replace the opening A-Man Logo

Rework Vader's Entrance Theme - Imperial March to fit better

New music for R2's canyon exploration

Fading in and out to and from sepia tones for AOTC scenes to avoid confusion began

Music in Ben's hut will be turned down

 

Fix the credit mistakes
