Project Threepio (Star Wars OOT subtitles)

Thank you ! I’ll read it all !
BTW : I’m looking especially for the LD subtitles that I couldn’t rip (was it possible from a LD ???)…

EDIT :
I read this thread but it seems so speak only about the 2004/2006 DVD release, as I thought at 1st…
So I’m still looking for the LD audio commentaries…

regards

I have looked around online for commentary subtitles and found nothing. In some unrelated reading I came across something curious, possibly of interest to you.
If you or someone you know runs a Linux os, you could check out Kdenlive. It’s a free, open-source video editing software that, according to the introduction page, has “subtitling feature with automatic speech to text conversion.” There is a Windows version, but it has issues; a MAC fork is a work-in-progress – see the introduction page for more information. I hope this helps.

I don’t know if any of them will help. Check out “12 Best Transcription Software to Convert Audio to Text” at fossmint

Hello. I’m Cal. I’m a big fan of the Original Trilogy. I saw Star Wars as a boy when it released in '77. I really enjoyed it but did not get caught up in fandom, at that time. Many years later, while compiling a somewhat modest VHS library, I bought an Original Trilogy S.E. box set. I’m not sure of the year. I do remember there was a face on each of the covers, the tapes sat side-by-side, and the sleeve holding the tapes slid out from the side. At some point I misplaced it, and have not seen it since. But, I digress. A few years ago I came across Harmy’s works, thestarwarstrilogy.com, fanedit.org, and this site, as well as a few others; I don’t recall which specifically. As a result I have since put together a small collection of Star Wars VHS, DVD, and Bluray box sets, as well as a few individual DVDs, while also putting together a nice collection of fan edits, and of course the great restorations from here. In short, I am now a fan. Also, I recently got into working with subtitles – just as a hobby – though no where near the calibre as @CatBus, nor @schorman. I’m a bit of an introvert, which I mention only to compliment those of you here, at thestarwarstrilogy.com, and at fanedit.org who have been receptive to my inquiries, and patient with me in my P.M.s. (As you and they know, I have a tendency to ramble, a bit.) I am happy to be of help in whatever way I am able.
(Note to the moderators: I can’t recall having introduced myself. If I have, feel free to delete this.)

Does the OOT subs include Swahili? My son-in-law has been sucked into the Star Wars universe recently, in large part by, and credit is due to DigModiFicaTion (fanedit.org). He created a “Youngling” edit of ESB for younger kids. As a result my grandson was able to watch. Soon after my granddaughter, his younger sister, got hooked, and thereby has subjected her father, my son-in-law, to watching it well over a dozen times. While my son-in-law understands English fluently, I’m thinking he would appreciate it more in his native tongue. On that note, does anyone know if there is a Swahili audio?

Hi. Any suggestions on getting either an empty slipcase and case art or finding someone/where to get it made. Specifically I’m looking for case art for the 2015 Complete Saga, as well as the slipcase into which it is housed. I have the 2011 edition, but don’t like the case or art work. The 2015 has the same discs but different case and housing/box for the case. Any suggestions?

Hello, Thanks to the admins of this site. Thank you to all who contribute. I have been a part of your community for several months, and am admittedly still a newb. I have been a fan of Star Wars since having seen the original in '77. I am old-school and partial the O.T. over all others. While I was away from the S.W. galaxy for many years, Harmy’s DEED reminded me what I was missing, had missed. I look forward to his 3.0. Thanks to Adywan for his Revisited edits. While I am not particularly a S.E. fan, I greatly appreciate his work, enough to locate and purchase the '97 SE Platinum tril. on VHS in anticipation of downloading his work.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back - Youngling Edition - DigModiFicaTion

Awesome edit!!! I saw Episode IV before it was Ep. IV, in a theater back in 1977 when I was 5 years old. I have a grandson who is now five. Being very cautious of what I allow him to watch, I sometimes wondered when he would get to watch any of the S.W. movies, more specifically one of the O.T. When I came across this one, and watched it, I was very happy not only with what DigMod had done in content, but also in quality. He wrote that his intention was, “To create a child friendly (6 and younger) viewing experience of the greatest Star Wars film that I can watch with my kids.” Mission accomplished. My grandson loved it!!! DigModiFicaTion’s edits never disappoint, in fact they rock! (This coming from both me and my youngling).

Star Wars Episode II: The Approaching Storm (Released)
Time

Regarding II, TAS, the 2 pixels made the difference. I ran it through Handbrake and resized it at 544 instead of 546. It worked. The picture is now the same across all devices. As for the zip files, my mistake was attempting to download the entire 720p file as compressed. It was fine when I downloaded the separate files. Thanks for the great work. Watching II now.

Star Wars Episode II: The Approaching Storm (Released)

I am no closer to figuring out what is going on. I have the 720p of your I & II on the same flash drive. There are four devices into which I plugged in said USB: tv1=1080p, tv2 720p, Blu-Ray1 and 2 are both Sonys–one is an upgrade to the other. When I play CoD on any of the four devices there is no problem; they all display it with bars on top and bottom. When I play TAS on the tvs there is no problem, but on the blu-rays the picture takes up the entire screen making the images too tall. From what I can tell both movies’ display specs are nearly identical. The only difference is 2p between them–CoD is 1280x544, TAS is 1280x546. Any ideas?
