Are you gonna do anything about that sad excuse for an opening?

Why would you want Grace to live? There’s no reason for it, and it would mess up the other episodes.

I don’t give a crap about it fitting with the other episodes, I do this stuff for fun, not to pander to what other people want for “go to” versions.

…wow.

There is a snowstorm happening where I live in Northwest Indiana

You too, Screams? Lake, Porter, or LaPorte County? (Guessing one of the first two since it doesn’t seem to be too bad here in LaPorte County.)

Porter .It pretty much let up now but Lake effect is supposed to happen later tonight . It’s unusual that we get more snow than Laporte though .Nice to meet a fellow region rat !

Yeah, I’m happy I have the weekend off (I work in Portage). Supposed to be rough again tomorrow.

  8. Rogue One
  9. Episode IV: A New Hope (4K77)
  10. Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (Revisited or Hal’s edit depending on mood)
  11. Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (4K83)
  12. Episode VII: The Force Awakens (Hal Restructured edit)
  13. Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (poppasketti Rekindled edit)

Haven’t been able to sit through the first episode of Resistance yet so dunno if it’s canon to me or not. And don’t feel like going through all the books, comics, etc. right now.

The Last Jedi: Rekindled (RELEASED!)

You know, I’d never really thought about it much, but

RogueLeader said:

It would actually feel like the First Order is invading various parts of the galaxy, like the crawl mentioned, if Maz is off somewhere else also fighting them. The last time we see Maz, her home and livelihood was destroyed by the First Order, and she even says that “we” must fight them. Plus, if she is going to be with the Resistance in IX, wouldn’t it make sense to have Maz already be fighting the First Order.

^ that may just have sold me on this being a necessary change.

STAR WARS: EP V &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>AVAILABLE NOW</strong>
Time

It boiled down to it being too much work for an effect that wasn’t entirely convincing all the time, in both cases (especially the icy breath one). Less that it would take too long to do and more that no matter how many different ways it was tried, it always looked at least slightly “off.”

If it was all about the amount of time it would’ve taken then, sincerely no offense but honestly, you as a forum made a bad decision.

I was going to clarify 005’s statement since it’s not 100% accurate to my memory, but after reading this, nevermind. Someone else can bother.

Sadly we are going to have to find another print. The one I have has turned out to be toxic, and damn near killed me. We are yet to ascertain what the substance is on the print, but it is very bad news.

The print is also pretty bad shape.

Here is a sample.

I’m really sorry about this, I got completely screwed by the seller, I am on the lookout for a replacement.

4k77 released
Time

I don’t recommend any form of stick-on/adhesive label. They ruined most of the discs I used them on over time, and I’ve heard horror stories of them ruining disc drives as well.

If you want disc labels, the only truly safe way to do it is to get printable discs and use a compatible printer, unfortunately.

Star Wars Despecialized Editions - Custom Bluray Set
Time

I think he’s wanting to know what the difference is in quality between 2.5 and 2.7 of Despecialized in general.

Here’s the thread about v2.7, which started as towne32’s personal color correction of v2.5 and grew into an official DEED release.

From his first post (paragraph 1 is from when it was just 2.5 with color tweaks; paragraph 2 is from when he made additional changes and he called it 2.6; paragraph 3 is about the current version, 2.7, for which Harmy provided him with the original source files):

towne32 said:

…this is a color adjusted version of Harmy’s Star Wars Despecialized 2.5. … Harmy took a unique take on the color timing. Because he had access to frames of a scanned IB Technicolor print, he based the 2.5 coloring on that. Harmy did an amazing job matching those scans. Some of the big differences in color could have only made his job more difficult, and his product looks like Technicolor scans. … Harmy was not aware at the time that his scans had not yet been corrected to match the way the print looks when projected. … The goal is just to make a more consistent version color wise that, for me, is ideal for watching in a trilogy with Harmy’s other two releases.

This is now available as Star Wars Despecialized 2.6 as AVCHD, MKV, and BD iso with alternate crawl options. MKV format releases have a fixed Castilian audio track as well as Russian, Ukranian, Thai, and Navajo dubs (in addition to the tracks in 2.5). Replaced some shots using TN1’s Silver Screen Edition, mostly for purely GOUT based shots like Luke heading to his X-wing. I did some extra manual and automatic cleanup and stabilization, and did my best to match the color, contrast, grain, and sharpness to surrounding shots.

Despecialized 2.7 builds off of 2.6 with additional color changes, mostly removing some green from the desert and Death Star. Additionally, the “A Long Time Ago” card is a cleaned up version from the Silver Screen Edition (SSE). It also features Catbus’s excellent Greedo subtitles that were derived from the SSE, and Darth Lucas rotoscoped the lightsaber blade in Ben’s hut from the SSE. This version has better video quality as I used Harmy’s lossless encodings. It features a Hindi track and Project Threepio v9.2 subtitles.
