 It seems like these days, the more he talks, the stupider he sounds.

lmao. Yes he is "stupider".

 

 

Oh wow, that is really hilarious. See that? Vbangle was astute enough to point out to us all that Janskeet totally screwed up his grammar by using "stupider" rather than "more stupid". Very funny Vbangle. Guys who correct other people online CRACK me up EVERY TIME!!! I can't stop laughing my guts out! HAHA! Good show my friend, good show! Hehe... heh.

Phew! Now that I have finally caught my breath, I have one for you. You're going to live this! It is very funny. Wait for it, wait for it... okay, here goes... "stupider" and "more stupid" are both acceptable forms! ZING! 

Oh, too bad I just missed this before vbangle ignored me. I'm guessing vbangle will still read all of my posts anyways. So vbangle, if you're reading this, that image you private messaged me was reported to Jay and Moth3r! I hope you... "resisting adjective and verb..." get banned!

I was a Blu-ray hold-out also, until the right film came along. Once it was announced that Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull would be a Blu-ray release, I reworked a spare bedroom into a proper theater room, complete with a Blu-ray player.

Sorry but wasn't the general consensus of Krystal Skull a horrible movie? If you liked it that's fine, but you thought it was good enough to make the switch to HD and turn a room into a theater room?

Indy BluRay pushed off til 2010, what does that mean for SW?

Yeah, Janskeet, no one in their right mind, now or then, would ever do CG on a film meant to be shown theatrically at less than 1080p (honestly, less than 2K is crazy IMO, though 2K and 1080p are so close the difference is almost negligible).  Even on films like T2 from 1991 would have been done at 2K (I think, but don't quote me on that, I could be wrong).

I wonder if this is why the CGI work looked so good in T2 compared to more recent films. The artists (yes, they used to have artists in the business) were so contientious of the CGI blending in with the film they actually put enough time into it to look good at 1080p an beyond. I wonder if the CGI designers working for Lucasfilm, ILM, and the entire industry in general even consider that their work will eventaully be viewed at high resolutions. I didn't see Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer (or whatever the hell it was called) but the silver surfer looked terrible in it. If I was oblivious to movies I would've predicted that the silver surfer was created before the T-1000.

If you ask me, digital cinematography sucks. It's ideal for amatuer filmmakers and home recordings, but if you are really serious about making a film than you should use film. I'm a little confused though what constitutes cinematography as digital or film? I've worked with cameras that had a film media (tapes that were like audio cassestes but made for video recording) and were instantly playable on computers after recording. I don't know if they analog or digital?

The problem isn't that it's "considered sub-standard now," it's that, compared to 35mm film, it was sub-standard then, too.

But it doesn't really matter since the vast majority of ROTS was CG anyway - the maximum resolution of that film, even if it were shot on 35mm, would have been limited by the resolution of the CG shots - and I don't think there's a shot in that film that doesn't have at least some CG in it.

ChainsawAsh, was the CG work done in AOTC and ROTS and TPM in 1080p? I doubt it was even done in 720p. Considering the computers they were working with back then, were probably shittier than the ones Adywan is working with now.

If Lucas did a proper oot restoration for blu ray and dvd would he be forgiven for the special editions and the prequels?

Apparently that wasn't the only difference. I remember reading people's claims that Vader's "NO!" scream and the subsequent wipe to the next scene was different, and that there was a difference in the background during Anakin and Obi-Wan's last verbal exchange on the lava flow. Not sure if any of those are true.

The audience that I saw ROTS in was laughing at the vader moment so loud I didn't even catch what they were laughing at. They started laughing right as Vader said No, and I was like, what are they laughing at, because I couldn't hear Vader screaming no! I could've sworn the 35mm version that I saw in theaters had Anakin saying no, I shouldn't, he's unarmed before he killed Dooku, not after. My audience laughed at that moment too.

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

Btw, I was thinking - can Vader's hologram do with a tiny bit of work (the one where he appears before General Veers during the Hoth ground assault)? Maybe it can be sharper; with Vader's helmet looking better, and the hologram can flicker a bit.

 

 I'm pretty sure this is being fixed.

 

I'm really glad that Ady is going the non-CG way. It'll really make this edit that much more professional and will really assimilate it into the look and feel of the original ESB.

Can't wait for the Behind the Scenes clips! Oh, and the May 2010 [tentative] deadline isn't so bad.

Ady, I've got a question for you:

I know you're never returning to ANH:R, but if you were to (re)make this fanedit now, after gaining the experience you've gotten after finishing ANH:R and working on ESB:R, would you do anything differently (in terms of the Revisited changes)?

yeh, thats being fixed

 

I will never be returning to any of the revisited edits once they are finished. There is a high possibility that once all 6 movies are finished i will never watch the Star Wars saga movies ever again. The only thing i would change in ANH:R is the torture droid needle. it really didn't turn out the way i wanted it to. Apart from that i'm happy with what i was able to do

 

I actually happen to like the torture droid needle change like you said, makes it look more like it belongs in the star wars world. The syringe looked to earth like with the measuring device visible. I also assume that you would change the stripes on the wings of red 5 to 5 stripes in place where it is visable that there are just 2.

The problem with AOTC is...
Time

not the love story, it's the fact that it happened exactly as you imagined it would happened. There's no twist or turns in the story. It's just generically layed out. It is exactly how you would've imagined it as a child. That's the problem, the movie shouldn't happen the way you imagined it as a child. That would've been like the equivilant of using the Terminator 2 formula for Empire Strikes Back. That would've been like using ROTJ as the sequel to Star Wars minus the Jabba the Hutt scenes and rearraging things to fix continuity. Also it was a stupid idea of Lucas to use HD video. If he was serious about making a work of art he would have used film. 

If ROTJ was the sequel to ANH people would be thinking, "get the hell out of here, we've already seen this before!" Since there is one movie that seperates them that has a very contrasting story to ANH, it somehow makes it more accepting and feasible to the audience in the 3rd act that we are seeing a lot of repeated themes from the first, big space battle at the end, attacking the death star again, blowing it up in a similar manner etc. I think ROTJ changes enough things around though to make it feel like we are watching something new. It was probably the first sequel to start the pattern of people making sequels that mirror the architecture of the first movie, Aliens, Back to the Future Part 2, T2, etc.

Copying and pasting text feature?
Time

I find myself copying and pasting text so often with web browsing and file naming these days that I wish I had the clipboard feature like in Microsoft word where you can copy multiple pieces of text and keep track of them in the clipboard feature vs, the copying and pasting of text one at a time. I have Windows XP media center edition 2005. Does anybody know if I can download a feature like the clipboard that works in any application software at the same time?

BarBar Jinkx said:The first movie had to show the audience the little ship from the casts pov inside the cockpit. In the third movie it was a action sequence so as far as I am concerned it is forgivable as for a resonable explanation as to why there is a diference within the universe itself I'd guess the MF got a weapons upgrade at some point between the 2 events.

That makes me think of the prequel talk. Like R2's rockets were removed in the OT to explan why he didn'tu se them in certain situations like to get out of the swamp on Degobah. Does that really need explaining? It never occurred to me until you guys started talking about them.

adywan said:

only the second layer with the robotic filter had a 1 frame delay. the main track had no delay. If you listen closely to vaders voice in ESB & ROTJ you can hear a double tracking effect as if there are 2 voices.

Oh, cool! Does Darth Vader's voice have a subwoofer channel in ESB and ROTJ?

I think youtube has improved recently, even in standard quality I think the videos look pretty good. So were music videos like Thriller recorded in 35mm and then broadcast in analog on cable networks back then and that was the only way of seeing them? Didn't they used to attach music videos to CDS for awhile? Apparently they had video in CD quality, since they were short they could fit on a cd, I never bought CDs much so I don't know. What about music videos sold on DVD? I have never seen a music video sold on DVD.
