Does WookieGroomer still read these boards?

 

if so, I saw this post on usenet from him:

 Wookie Groomer REPOSTS **REQ ORIGINAL 1080 SKY CAPS OF PHANTOM MENACE/ATTACK OF THE CLONES

Now, I may be able to help him out.   I had the original SkyHD broadcasts for 1 & 2, but recently re-encoded them to NTSC 23.976 1080p at slightly higher bitrate than the original source (basically made a BD25 from them).   Problem is, I had to dump the original source files after encoding was complete due to space limitations.

So if you read this Wookie, and would like what I have, let me know, I would be more than happy to help you out with this project.

 The SkyHD broadcasts are from the UK and known not to be as high quality as the German caps, though much better than the hV ones.   I am assuming Wookie needs the SkyHD versions for the english hardcoded subtitle scenes and opening crawl.   Wookie is known to make his versions with a hybrid of both sources.

Thats what he needs them for, and I don't know if the re-encoded ones will work for him...  If anyone has the originals help him, and all of us, out so he can finish all 6 of his new bluerays.

I'd seccond this. Somebody on these forums must have the Sky  UK caps of Eps 1 and 2 and could help Wookie Groomer so that he can complete this project.  I believe that he'll shortly be releasing Sith on blu-ray so it would be a crying shame if he couldn't complete the series.

Sith has been finished for a while but is on hold for a few more days till I can confirm a few things with it.

 

Yes, I need the original un-altered original Sky broadcasting versions to use the english parts from. I lost mine in a tragic mishap of being stupid and not thinking ahead. I would not use any re-encodes since technicaly, all edtions are encodes and/or re-encodes so I want to keep it as pure as possible. I am shooting for BD25's of Sith and Clones so a small handful of you should be happy about that. I have too many things planned for Phantom Menace to not use BD50. That one will be a bitch to finish so it's coming last.

The first one to repost these for me gets mentioned on the credits page of the bluray disks they are on to be immortalized forever! ;)

 

The hv re-encodes are poison and should be deleted promptly.

so are any of the other Sky broadcasts still available? I would really love to find these as well.

Thanks

I deleted the original caps no more than 5 days ago too :(   Well, I am a quality nut, and I can tell you that my encodes look just as good as the original caps since I used a higher bitrate than the originals.  I highly doubt anyone would notice any difference, but I understand why you want an untouched source.

 

If you cannot find the originals Wookie, and you need what I have, I will upload them for you.  If you would like a sample posted on usenet, I will do that as well.

I'm not certain whether DVD-BOY follows this thread but since he's working on his own versions in blu-ray format it's possible that he has the Sky caps of TPM and AOTC that you need to complete your set of six, Wookie Groomer?

In case he doesn't follow this thread, I've popped a request on the relevant thread - hopefully somebody there can help you.

Cheers,

I'm pretty sure that DVD-BOY's blu-ray set will be BD-25 whereas yours are BD-50's. For many BD-50's are just too expensive and as the highest quality HDTV rips available are only 17GB there will be no difference in quality if they are on a BD-50 or a BD-25

 yeah, but we all know Wookies quality is top notch.  

 

Though I do agree the bitrate puzzles me somewhat

Alterations to video and audio need pushed bitrate(s) to ensure quality doesn't decrease in any way.  A bit overkill, maybe, but that overkill fuels piece of mind in them being as good as they can look.  And they sure do look great.  Thanks Wookie Groomer, I can't wait to have all six.

Dont take my post the wrong way, I wasn't complaining about the bitrate at all, and what the other poster makes sense, to raise the bitrate high enough where any encoding artifacts will be eliminated.

 

I am looking forward to your release of RotS, and read your nfo.   I am also still trying to see if we can get you the SkyHD caps as it would be a shame not to have all 6 in BD50.

ROTS is going up on the groups now!!  Looking at the nfo, this is going to be a seriously nice release and I can't wait to watch it.

I really hope that Wookie Groomer is able to get the Sky caps of Eps 1 and 2 to complete this set.
