What an awesome surprise. Can't wait!

I am quite pleased at this.  I've been watching my GOUT DVD lately, and while the quality certainly takes me back my old VHS viewing days (sad to compare a DVD release to VHS quality), this will enhance my enjoyment immensely.  Though, I've never accessed a newsgroup before, ever.  So, I'll wait to see if it does pop up elsewhere.  And for the record, I own five different copies of the trilogy through VHS & DVD.

Wow, what a surprise! This sounds like quite a treat. Can't wait to check it out.

Honestly, I just don't know how you can do it all, Ady!

I can't wait to have this but I'm currently at my school dorms and I can't download from newsgroups or torrent, so if someone uploads to RS, would you kindly send me a PM, so I can use it for throwing together a quick cut for tomorow, thank you. And thank you Adywan, you're awesome :-)

The Hoth sequence definitely didn't have two or three shots re-comped. Probably more like a dozen. The cockpit shots look like they were just darkened to hide the transparancy though, but most if not all of the speeder shots were re-touched and in some cases had different compositional elements--subtle, yes, but nonetheless re-comped. That's why the sequence had very little grain in 1997. The thing should be grainy as hell, and the GOUT is a testament to that.

You took me a little too literal there ;) It was just a figure of speech. If you have the TB broadcast version of the '97 SE you can see what shots were redone. They actually stick out like a sore thumb because it look too clean next to the rest of the footage as if they have gone through some sort of grain removal process. It's strange that they would do some shots yet other glaringly bad composites untouched, but you are correct when you say its about a dozen or so shots

I spotted a slight audio error on the DVD when watching it last night but nothing major. I'd just forgot to remove one sound effect of the falcons hatch closing when Lando pulls luke inside that was added for the SE.

That's sad, but we'll ignore it I guess. ;-)

I would never have noticed, so it doesn't bother me personally.  Do you plan to "correct" this, though, in a later release?  I just thought I'd ask before I send out copies to friends, whom it might bother a little.

Just finished Downloading it. Just checked a couple of sequences and the image quality is just amazing! So nice to see Vader's lightsaber Red instead of pink.

 

Thanks a lot for this Adywan. Perfect thing to wait for ESB:R

Awesome to see this come together. Pleasure working on it with you Ady. I am in your debt, my friend.

I won't be doing another version just to remove 1 split second sound effect.

Sounds like something we can either ignore or fix ourselves if it really concerns us. Anything is better than watching the SE on the 30th anniversary of the theatrical!

Thank you for the reply, Adywan. :-) As long as I know that this is final, I can start sending copies to friends.

I will be posting an optional audio fix in an hour or so that removes the SE hatch sound. It's a pretty easy fix with all the tools needed and instructions for those that want it.

Or, that will work. Saves people who already downloaded from having to download another 5 GB.

This is amazing.  I've just finished watching it.  The picture quality is superb and the integration of the theatrical scenes is totally seamless.  Thanks a lot for this Adywan. This is now my definitive DVD version of the theatrical ESB.

Also there's room on a DVD5 for someone to add menus and subtitles if they want to, I would if I wasn't totally useless with multimedia stuff!

Indeed!  Moreover, when someone posts to another download service, they could upload it with the "fix" implemented.  :-)

Thank you again, Adywan, for your willingness to oblige your troublesome fans. :-D

Don't look at me, apparently my network is so slow that people have already downloaded, burned and watched the entire movie and I still have a couple hours of download to go!

I'm not.  :-)  AvP has said he will upload this.  If he won't, I will - with the "fix".
