Can’t wait to see this finished! Would love to use this for a TPM Theatrical edit later on. Looks great 😃
Any plans to redo this project with the new 4K disc??
Would like this too!
I captured these when they originally aired using a Sony Digital-8 camcorder and transferred them via the Firewire to my PC… I believe D8 is 720x480. Not sure if I still have the original transfers, but I think I put them on DVD as individual episodes and my own version of a single movie. Useful for reference?
This is super helpful if you can get this uploaded!
Are you sure? I thought we had cinema DTS tracks for the 97 SE’s and the PT. I know we have TPM and ROTS, I was pretty positive we had AOTC, too.
You’re right, I just checked the usual place and we do have the PT DTS tracks.
That’s my bad, I’ve been out of the loop for a little bit.
Are they on the spleen, I couldn’t find them. Under what name?
I’d love a link to these as well, if they aren’t on the Spleen
I came across a open matte version of the shorter International cut in 1080p that has come out as a web dl version. The cropping is close to the old 4X3 dvd print aspect ratio but has the same pink cars and tennis ball problem.
Where can I get a hold of that?
I’d love a link too!
I’d love to see an upload of that original free dvd!
Finally! Can’t wait to see this project’s progress!
I made a crude Stereo FLAC recording of the Movies Anywhere track when it first came out, but if someone can decrpyt the 5.1, I’d love a copy!
Would love to hear more of this project!!
Howdy! Any update on this project?
I got over the damn prequel poisoning, but then moved house to another city (which was a big move) and had some family crises that put everything else on hold for a while. I’ve only just started setting up my workstations etc again, and hope to have more time available for this in the coming months.
Clones is awaiting scanning, there are a few other movies in the queue, and I’ll need to get HDDs to store the scan (around 20TB for a scan of Clones), but it is on the list, and if there is interest here, it will get done.
Glad to hear you’re doing better!! The interest is certainly strong here, but your family and health comes first. 😃
I would love a PM for this
Willing to help out!
Would love to see!
If poita gives the OK I can upload a HQ encode of the entire reel.
I would love that, just so we have some film copy of the alterations available, even if it’s not at optimal quality. It’s something we can you around with for the moment.
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.
YIKES. I’m so sorry this happened to you. Best of luck finding a clean print!
This is true, but isn’t really relevant to why the print should be scanned at 4K instead of 1080p.
But yeah, the 35mm/DLP/DVD differences are the big draw toward scanning a 35mm print of this in the first place.
My bad, I misunderstood that question then!
If you just scan at 1080p/2K, there’s a nonzero chance the pixels printed to the film won’t line up with the pixels being scanned, so you’ll lose information. 4K guarantees you’ll pick up every digital pixel that’s on the print.
In addition to preserving the look and texture of a film print, there are some changes made from this Film Theatrical Cut to the Digital Theatrical/ DVD release.
"Most of these changes did not appear in the main theatrical release, but made it into a version shown in select digital theaters.
Several speeders were removed from a shot during the Bounty Hunter pursuit scene.
New dialogue added to the scene where Anakin confesses to the Tusken slaughter to Padmé.
Additional sparks and smoke have been added to Jango Fett’s jetpack shortly before his death to better present its malfunction.
After falling out of the gunship on Geonosis, a clone trooper asks if Padmé is all right. Her response of “yes” has been changed to a more realistic groggy “Uh-huh.”
During their duel on Kamino a shot of Jango Fett headbutting Obi-Wan is removed from the UK version of the film and DVD.
Anakin’s mechanical hand now holds Padmé’s hand during the closing wedding sequence (this was originally included in the DLP theater release of the film)."
Looks fantastic! I was one of the people who started a project similar to this, but got in over my head and had no time. What you’ve done looks much better than what I have, and I’d be happy to help you however I can. Best of luck, Bobson!
I hate to say it but it’s been nearly a year and I still can’t get a copy of this release. I saw Aladdin at Greater Union cinemas in Civic, Canberra when it was released and fell in love with it. To this day I have the original poster up in my computer room along with a collection of Aladdin toys, characters etc. The ‘release’ ins’t accessible so be sure to reply with ideas other than Blutopia. 😃
Same, I’ve been able to get a myspleen account but not Bluetopia.
Congrats! Lucky for you the competition was light.
Now if only a good print of ROTS would show up. 😃
I’d love to see a film print of ROTS too, but I think from a Theatrical Preservation standpoint, Schorman’s reconstruction with Jetrell Fo’s Theatrical DTS track just about covers it, since AFAIK the only noticeable changes are undoing the re-rendering of Kashyyyk by using an HDTV recording, the wipe that was reinstated to the Blu Ray, and the extra Clone voices the Blu Ray added but the Theatrical tracks fix.
