High Resolution Art
Time
Here are mine, but I'm having problems posting full-res images and will do so as soon as I possibly can. If you can tell, the REVENGE poster has always had Vader with a blue saber and Luke with a red one. I have that version and I made my own personal version that fixes that problem, and when I get the rest up I'll make that one available as well. I can release the green-saber Jedi cover, and MAYBE a green-saber Revenge cover (though I haven't even MADE one or thought of making one until that moment when I thought about it), if there is demand.

Help Wanted: The MagnoliaFan edits???

Awesomeness. Just one thing: can the files be used in Ulead DVD Workshop 1, or do I need 2? Or another program entirely? I know DVDWS1 doesn't do anamorphic, but 2 does. And I plan on getting DVDWS2 for Christmas, (about when I'll get to the X-Files Season 5 or so torrent at the rate 1 and 2 are going, and S5 is around when they started to be shot in widescreen) so I'll be okay when that time rolls around.

Kay, back. How do you set it so people can download full-resolution images? I'm still a n00b at the Yahoo Photos thing...

EDIT...

It seems only SBC Yahoo, BT Yahoo, Rogers Yahoo (all broadband internet services offered by YH), and Yahoo Plus (looking into that) users can download photos, so it appears I'll have to sign up for Yahoo Plus which I don't want to do as it costs $$$....and to get the free trial you need to enter credit card #, which I do not have access to....so it looks like I'm #$!@ed right now...unless I can figure out a way to get them out to people...or you want a 480x322 pixel version of an originally 3240x2175 pixel image (or something like that). Hehe.

Seriously, folks -- DVD Decrypter is FREE!!!! Go here, and ignore the Nero part (it has ImgTool and DVD Decrypter downloads); it's a guide on how to make a DVD from AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS (and i STRONGLY reccomend adding an EMPTY AUDIO_TS folder next to the VIDEO_TS folder if there isn't one BEFORE you make the ISO, for better compatibility with older players, and just to be safe put it in front of the VIDEO_TS because I really don't know if that makes a difference but I've always seen the EMPTY audio folder come before the video folder). That's the same way I did it and all three anamorphic discs work flawlessly.

--EDIT--

Actually reading the tutorial it seems the AUDIO_TS folder is created for you, so ignore that part.

Next generation bootlegs
Time
Holy shit...I am now officially definitely getting the official DVDs for the sole reason that they look extremely kick-ass...

And if someone had an original film print and could restore, digitize, and burn it I'd say forget about using the DVD at all and just use that original print. I didn't want pay money for a bootleg set ripped from a laserdisc or something like that because I figured there are so many different versions how the hell am I gonna pick one without risking a serious waste of $$$, so I downloaded the anamorphic set. But if a set was made from original film prints of all three original movies (preferably the 35mm re-release run 1981 Star Wars print, the 35mm original-run Empire print, and the 1983 original-run Jedi print) I would gladly shell out whatever is needed. And if there was a 1977 original-run Star Wars print that would be nice to have as an alternate, but I'd rather have the 81 A NEW HOPE print to better fit with the other three, not to mention it would be easier to find probably. God would that be an awesome day.

Good news! Figured out how to work that Yahoo Photos thingamajigg...I have all my Cerbero alternates up minus the A NEW HOPE one (the STAR WARS one is up), my original TPM and AOTC, and my original STAR WARS, EMPIRE, JEDI, and ANH covers (the Struzan art ones that is) are going up now. Tomorrow I'll put up all the posters and my Cerbero alternate ANH one, and perhaps my Soulflare alternates (if he doesn't mind), and *MAYBE*disc art at some point. But it won't be a whole hell of a lot different than other available disc art I'll tell you.

IF ANYONE WANTS THEM:

EMPIRE without the Star Wars logo added (found earlier in the thread somewhere)
JEDI without the Star Wars logo added (old font)
JEDI with new font and without the STAR WARS logo added

I don't have a new-font JEDI with the SW logo, but I could make one if it is desired.

Oh yeah, linkage...hehe....here. Enjoy.

People, have patience!! People do have lives other than the computer! He'll post when he can. For my own personal use (I didn't know what Soulflare would think) I recreated Soulflare's back covers and used them in lieu of Cerbero's for my covers, with a few small modifications, and used my spine and front (again, with a few small modifications). If Soulflare doesn't mind I'll try to get that up with my others when I can, but at this point they're for myself.

@ MBJ -

That was just a color-correction of the shot you posted here. I'm thinking about getting a Mac since they're supposed to be better with video editing, for my "home" movies (I've made a couple indie movies myself with an 8mm camcorder and have never been very happy with the way they captured and turned out), and if and when I do I'll start my own coversion project, but for now I'm happy with the anamorphic set.

Quick question for owners of the anamorphic version of the original trilogy. Does your ROTJ not display the THX trailer and the time/chapter info on the front of your dvd player while the movie is playing? I just got this set (thanks digitalfreaknyc) and the first two movies show this info, but ROTJ doesnt? Thanks.
So yours does that too? Thought it might've been a problem with my burn but I'd already deleted the torrent and didn't want to re-download it. Must be a problem with the torrent. And the timecode problem doesn't occur on some DVD players I've noticed, but it does on I believe all Toshibas that I've tried. It's not that much of a problem really, you can still skip chapters, the only problem is you don't know how long the movie's been going on. Hmm.

I've noticed (on the Anamorphic set anyway) that all the SW movies need a little color-correction, and Jedi needs it badly. Here's an example (I can't get the full-sized screen like you but here's what I have) of what I've done with one of the two shots you posted here:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v58/chainsawash/SS.jpg

Now I don't know about you, but that's a hell of a lot better and there's little to no loss of detail. If you had the time, you could color-correct every shot in the trilogy to make it look just awesome, and maybe even do some dust-removal. Personally I'd just color-correct, I don't mind the dust at all. If you'd do that, first I'd strongly suggest correcting not frame-by-frame but shot-by-shot. For example, put all the frames in one shot into the same Photoshop file and color-correct them all at the same time, basically using the worst-looking frame in the shot as your guide. Second, I could help you out if you want; you could send me some shots via e-mail and I could send the corrected ones back, etc. The biggest problem I have with ANH is sometimes faces get quite red, in ESB there are some shots that are just off, and in ROTJ there are MANY shots that are way too bright, where the black doesn't match the black of the letterbox (most notably in the Vader-Luke duel while Luke is hiding and before he gets really P.O.'d about Vader mentioning Leia, if I remember correctly) and a lot of blue haze around stars.

Like I said, I'd be more than happy to help out if you want. The capture looks to be really good, just needs a little tweaking is all.

I tried Rikter's cover archive torrent but it won't do anything on my computer.


That would be mine and it's not on there; I'll get the covers to Rikter or someone who can host them, I just have no means to do so at this time. And they now have the "Star Wars" text on the logo:

I'd just like to remind people that these are NOT my covers, they are another person's and I do not have access to high-res versions; what you see is what I have.

And actually it was Disney that screwed us over, but we haven't been able to carry Lucasfilm covers for about a year now, six months or so before the site closed. That was because we had covers up for the bootlegs probably, but afterwards we didn't allow non-official covers.

What do you guys think about the green saber? I have access to that art, and if you'd like my covers to use the green saber rather than blue I'll do it.

I'd say nix any "Episode" references and just use the names of the movies, nix the "Revenge" and use "Return", and use something else for Star Wars to match better with Empire and Jedi. I absolutely love the backs and am a little unsure about the "Unauthorized Collection" moniker like DanielB is, but other than those things, they look awesome. It might sound like I'm being overly critical but I was with a DVD cover site for two years (still am but it got shut down for the moment) and we look for all those little details, which is why I insisted on having mine so high-res compared to, specifically, Cerbero's posters on his set, which look fine but don't fit the standards we've set and that I've gotten used to following.

On another note, here's some covers I've seen around the Net. DO NOT ASK FOR THESE AS THEY ARE NOT MINE, I just liked them and figured I would show you guys (not sure about the green ROTJ saber though):




Again, I CANNOT SEND THESE TO ANYONE, they are just examples.

Mine are nearly done entirely, just fine-tuning and tweaking a few things here and there. I included the ESB and ROTJ logos DanielB provided us with, so thanks a bunch for that. They look a ton better now. As for posters, again, give me a little bit, I'll have to get all of them individually up on Angelfire and then post them here, then re-upload and re-post each time AF shuts me down. Wish me luck.
