Between 7175|7176 insert GOUT 128958-129157 (200 frames of Han torture-- censored?)

Yes it was censored for the cinema release to achieve “FSK 12”.
Nowadays it is uncensored with “FSK 12”.

Sorry only german:

WOWOW Star Wars saga
Time

In Germany SKY HD aired the OT some weeks ago.

Obviously audio is german only. Sky logo is outside the picture, but german subtitles are burnt in.
I did not capture it myself and I am not sure if this is a reencode or the actual stream.

If there is any interest I can upload samples or the whole trilogy to Usenet.

Eine AVCHD müsstest du neu-encoden… ich weiß aber nicht, mit welchem Tool das ginge. Kann jemand helfen?

Does anybody know how to create a DVD9-sized AVCHD from the MKV?

Can be done with BDRebuilder from jdobbs
http://www.jdobbs.com/

But if you want it on a physical disc I propose just to remux it to Blu-Ray with TSMuxer and burn it to BD-R.

Done watching SSE35mm, it looks awesome!

I tried a test Blu-ray conversion using AVCHDCoder and the audio was out by 2-3 seconds. ouch!
It’s surprising because all previous movies I’ve converted on AVCHDCoder (inc SW-DE & ESB DE) have been in perfect sink.

Any other Blu-ray creators you guys could recommend?

All you need to do is to run the mkv through TSMuxer with output set to Blu-Ray folder.
Then burn it with ImgBurn or any other program supporting Blu-Ray.

Back to the Future - without DNR & EE (Help Wanted)
Time

I have to ask:

Are there any german audio tracks (BR, LD, DVD) synched to the DCP?

Edit:

Just found that buried in this thread. So I can do it myself.

Btw, if anyone wants to sync any other audio tracks from the official Blu-ray release, just add a delay of -2343 ms to the audio track in tsMuxer. It will be in sync with the DCP version then.

Are you talking about the DVD or the BD?

 The BD. DD = DigiDreams

There is a UK disc coming out soon.

 According to the german dilettante they will us his master. Maybe the encoding will be better, but I would not have high expectations on that too.

Andrea,

you can't use any german release from DD as a color reference.

The man behind this company is clearly a colorblind, incompetent man.

ALL (and I really mean ALL releases since VHS) have a strange redshift. Also which can be very often found in the releases is a heavy contrast boost.

Give him a decent master and he applies heavy to very heavy (Predatur UE style) DNR, auto-cleaning tools, color boost, redshift, etc.

I will not post his name or company name here, because he finds always the places where he is talked about. Very strange. :)

Has Lucas or Lucasfilm ever made an official statement as to why Anakin's ghost was changed?  It really doesn't seem like much thought was put into the change, especially when you consider the footage that was used and how it was executed.

 As far as I remember, the justification was, that this young Anakin was a Jedi = good, while Darth Vader = old Anakin = bad and only Jedis can be seen as ghosts.

This is how I recall it, but that may be even complete bullshit besides the obvious lack of logic in this change.
