Watched this tonight. It feels like a homage to Sean Connery’s Bond, just that alone makes it a much better film. This is one of the best fan edits, and really what the whole hobby is about. Great Job!
Reading and still using this in 2023. Thank you Moth3r the force is still with you. RIP.
I have read that oppo updated their firmware to accept bd66 and bd100 but I bought a re-writable disk to test. I heard Panasonic updated too but I am not sure about that. At least the high end.
The only other question I have is what makes it an HD disk is it the disk it’s written on or the format of the video. Meaning can I write a bluray to a DB50 disk and will work as a bluray or HD disk, and visa versa, if I use a common bluray disk and write 5 mins of 4k footage is it still seen as an HD disk? If this is the case I can use bluray software to do better menus on some of the 1080p bonus footage I have and put it all on one disk.
Anyway, thanks for this info it was very helpful.
AWESOME! Thanks for this info.
How does your player handle switching layers? Is there a pause. As far as playing the discs, I have read a few general posts that the discs work, even the 100gb ones. I bought a re-writable 100 to test. Here is hoping.
So there is a very good post here
by @railerswim about the subject, but it’s from way back in 2018. As far as I can tell, a whole lot has changed as far as the availability of the discs and authoring software. It seems like at this point a lot of the previous Bluray software authoring programs are now claiming they can do 4k uhd. Given that is the case I am wondering what people’s experience is.
I realize more and more this is becoming a moot point given that 4k bluyrays are kind of niche product but if you are not going to use Plex or another personal streaming service or you’re like me and you like the whole presentation and completeness of owning a physical disc with case and cover you may feel like a lot is lost if all a move is, is an icon on the screen. My intention now that it actually seems possible is to create my own “box set” of star wars material and versions.
So my question is, what are peoples experiences trying to create 4k disks with some of the beautiful 2160p versions of the original trilogy out there. Since I was unable to find a lot of info I am thinking there hasn’t been a lot of success, but maybe it’s so niche now no one is really trying?
Any recommendations as far as software? I am leaning to Yohan Bluray DVD Creator for 4k, it’s simple doesn’t do a lot of things but most of the 4k bluray disks I buy don’t have fancy menus or branching anyway. I really only need a menu system to allow access to the movie. My one concern is how my the player will change layers and making sure it’s not in the middle of an scene. However I am unsure that is something I can control anyway.
Another question I have is, is it the video format that is the problem or the disk. Meaning If I am only using standard 1080p footage can I author a standard bluray to a BD-50GB and take advantage of the additional size to add more footage, or is there a limit in disk size? If so I may still buy a more sophisticated standard bluray authoring tool for discs that will only be for 1080p bonus material. This would save me from having to use multiple cases for bonus material for instance.
Anyway any information would be helpful thank you.
Can someone share the 1080p version?
Thought about this a lot, and admittedly I only watched each film once and then tried to forget them.
That being said, as I remember it, the easiest change would be to change the baddy from being Palpitine to instead be Darth Plagueis. As mentioned by Palpitine to Anakin. If you remember he was able to use the force to create life. So he is the emperors hidden master. You could even still use Ian McDiarmid if you wanted. Then I would make the Emperor a clone, and make both Anakin and Ray both creations of Plegueis Just like the emperor said he was able to do. That would in a sense make them related and at least legitimize her being a Skywalker. Again in a sense as that makes Anakin her brother.
One of the points of the story now being that good and bad can’t be predetermined by your parents or your supposed destiny which the sith always shout about. That is a nice message. Pleagueis could have played on her need for a family as he would still be her father, but then it would also more closely echo’s Anakin’s ultimate journey too.
Listen it’s not a lot to work with as the stories were basically set up to fail in my mind by starting with a lazy and ultimately cynical retelling of the original story from the start, probably encouraged by Disney. Then just the hamfisted and missed opportunity of the first film. Never seeing the main 3 characters together. Finally there is the unforgivable steps of destroying the character of both male leads, of which I lead stronger of the belief that this was done on purpose and with malice. And don’t get me wrong I have no problem with a strong female lead, honestly loved Daisy Ridley, was excited when she was cast and feel like of everything on those films she was the biggest lost opportunity. I also hate that she now seems to be typecast as I would love to see her do some other stuff. Also Ahsoka is my second favorite Star Wars character, Luke being the first. So no you didn’t need to destroy the old trilogy and their protagonists to serve the new, and I believe it was agenda driven myself. The T-shirt was a tell, and I don’t care if it was some advertising campaign or not. I have no problem if you feel differently.
I also feel it was a mistake humanizing the storm troopers, the implications change the films when you realize they are all getting slaughtered and most of them are basically slaves. But then this would require an amount of thoughtfulness that I see no evidence JJ Abrams has. The second film is basically and FU to the original films by an overrated director who says as much. Frankly it’s hard to see any of the films any other way then that the people involved had no love for the original trilogy and it was just a big Disney money grab. But whatever I don’t count them anyway and am no longer fans of the people who made them. The niceness thing you can say about the people who made them was that they were amateurish, at least in my mind.
Still my little change at least removes some of the nonsense of Ray being Palppy’s kid. It also lessons the impact of the Emperors surviving which basically make the original trilogy only about Anikan. I mean it can even be explained that Plaguis knew if he had an apprentice he was at risk because of the rule of 2. So he cloned himself and intended to remove the clone when the time was right or something stupid like that. The idea being that the emperor didn’t even know he was a clone. Then Darth Snookie or whatever the fake emperor was in the first movie could be the result of centuries of cloning himself. Bringing balance is about finally destroying him as he has been cloning himself and influencing the galaxy for centuries. Whatever, it’s contrived but still better then what we got.
Truthfully anything is better, but I think the people involved with the property now are hacks. Again I get it if you disagree, this is just MY opinion.
Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, if so tell me where to put it and I will create another post.
Anyway would like to create 4k UHD discs and have been looking at software. I am aware that options are small. It looks like Yuhan is an option but I am unsure, so my question is, has anyone used this software and will it work.
I am aware that there is some question if the disk will work on your bluray player, I have a Oppo one and I can see posts where it says it does. I will test this.
Anyway I am wondering what other user’s experience is with trying to create the disks.
Please tell me this is not gone. This was truly one of the great edits on here. Where can I get the full version?!
Is it possible to get an invitation code to the forum?
Disney should already Turn Star Wars into the Palpatine Saga and not the Skywalker Saga lol in the Disney Universe Rey Palpatine Skywalker Palpatine Granddaughter is the one who truly defeats the Emperor and not Luke or Vader lol Disney should know that we are not in 2015 anymore when everyone liked the Disney Sequels after Rise of Skywalker the Disney Sequels are too controversial in a certain sector of the Fandom but Disney pretend to ignore the Old Fans who didnt like how they portrayed Luke, Han and Leia in those Movies the Disney Sequels are Flawed like George Lucas Prequels or even more
This is the truth, he wins about 99% of the whole trilogy, rules the galaxy for decades and dies with his offspring the most powerful person in the galaxy. Objectively he won. He has a few bad moments, in decades of dominance.
Not to be cynical and I am not sure that is such a thing if what you say is the truth, but what Disney did was they call a soft reboot which is to retell the same story (for the most part) with a new younger cast who they think are relatable to a younger audience, one more towards their target demographic who their marketing people tells them has the most disposable income to spend on movies and merchandise. When I was young there was the Long Ranger as well as Flash Gorden, both of which bombed, but it was the same idea. These were franchises my Dad grew up watching as a kid.
Like a lot of you, I grew up with the OT too and it will always hold a special place in my heart, but Star Wars has moved on from us, the people in charge don’t really care what we think, they know we will continue to buy merchandise about the original films, we are a sure thing. What they need is a new young group of consumers, which is exactly who the Sequel Trilogy is targeted at.
Now that we have the 4k OT (thanks to everyone’s hard work here) I am content with that. In my head cannon Mandalorian season 1-2 acted as the coda to the OT with the Mandalorian giving Grogu to Luke to form a new multi generation of Jedi, and the OT story ends there. I will always be thankful to Jon Favreau bringing me back to Star Wars when I thought I was done after how badly the OT was treated. It’s fine now.
Do I wish they would reset or at least do a “Classic Coke” type situation, telling parallel stories about the original to the expanded universe so there would be something for me to pay attention to? Sure but the truth is, things end. Lots of the music groups I grew up listening to when I was a kid or dying too. I have grown to see this is really a part of age and a sad part of life. I remember my Grandma being all upset about Bing Crosby dying. I accept it. Star Wars as it is today isn’t for me anymore.
It would have been better treatment then he eventually got. At least he wouldn’t have regressed and spared us the indignancy of him losing the falcon.
Just wanted to say this is monumental effort. Thanks for your work.
