Looking for NJVC Cover Art Sources
Time

Hello,
I am currently working on a custom Blu-Ray boxset with various Theatrical Releases, and I really like the cover art that NJVC created for their Despecialized Custom Blu-ray Boxset. However, since I’m putting more than just the Despecialized Editions in my boxset, I want to remove the Content Information from the back of the cover which describes information for just the Despecialized Edition. I’ve seen a version like this before, but can’t find it anywhere. If anyone has it or has access to the source material used by NJVC, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks!

Star Wars Despecialized Editions - Custom Bluray Set (Released)
Time

Hello,
I love the cover art for the NJVC box sets and would like to use them for my own. However, my box set has more than just the Despecialized Editions, so I would like to remove the content information from the back of the cover. Does anyone have copies of the covers without this information, or the original project file for the covers so I can remove them myself?
Thanks

Adding Subtitles & Menus to DVD's of Harmy's Despecialized?
Time

I’ve got just the thing for you. One of the most widely popular versions of Despecialized is NJVC’s Custom Blu-Ray set. They come with the movies, documentaries, bonus features, and menus. I’m not sure if they have nay for DVD’s, but here is the link to their thread anyway.

Here is the page for Despecialized .iso files: https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/NJVC-Custom-Blu-ray-Set-of-Harmys-Despecialized-Editions-now-available-on-Mega/id/57042/page/1

Problems Burning Despecialized to DVD

I’m not a tech-wiz but I don’t think an .iso file will play on most standalone blu-ray players.

As far as I know, most players will play a standalone .iso file. I’ve used .iso files for the NJVC and 4K## projects and they’ve been fine.

As far as your issue is concerned, I have to ask. Did you get the official .iso, or did you create an .iso and just throw the video file in there? An .iso has instructions for the player on how to play the disc, so if there is just a video file inside the .iso, it’s likely that your player can’t play it because it doesn’t have any instructions on how to.

How do I burn an MKV file to DVD?
Time

Okay, first off, let me give you some basics:

The way most discs works is that they have something called a “disc image” written on them. This is resembled as an .iso file when you are working on a computer. It is inside this .iso file that the instructions for reading the disc are located.
Now, there are different types of encoding for DVD’s and Blu-Rays. DVD’s have an AUDIO_TS and a VIDEO_TS folders. Blu-Ray DVD’s have a much more complex file hierarchy. So, if you are wanting to burn to a Blu-Ray, you will not be using a VIDEO_TS folder. You will want to write to blu-ray if you have a file larger than 8gb and in HD.

Now, lets get to burning. Most Blu-Ray players nowadays have a file browsing system, meaning if you can plug a flash drive into the player, you can browse media that way. Now, if you just want to burn an .mkv file, you can do it simply by dragging and dropping the file onto the disc through Windows File Exploerer (if on Windows). However, it may not work the way you would expect when you put it in the player. Usually, if your player does have a file browsing system and your disc was not written with a .iso, it will require you to find the .mkv file on the disc and then play it manually. That means no autoplay, because the instructions for that don’t exist on the disc.

Now, you may just want to convert the .mkv to an .iso and then write that to the disc so that it does play more like an authored disc, however this can be a bit confusing, and I haven’t personally done it myself.

The Despecialized Editions and the 4K## Projects each have .iso files available, so if you want to avoid all the hassle I mentioned above, simply download the .iso versions instead of the .mkv. I would recommend this as the best course of action for writing to discs. The DEED .iso’s are actually fan projects, so they also come with disc menus and a bunch of special features.
