Interesting. I assume you’re talking colour-correction and not his complete Revisited.
I dearly wish I could help you out.
From what I understand you’ve done some great preservation work yourself. Wish that I had some of these that I could share.
I don’t for a moment believe the complaint, and at the same time this back-and-forth has me curious about what IS in the forums. I’ve enjoyed TSWT as a web presence and soon I’ll be a little deeper into the site.
Not actually in search of the downloads but curious what’s there.
(My favourite find on the TSWT website was the Ralph McQuarrie paintings, especially the backdrop for The Star Wars Holiday Special. That’s the thread on OT that I frequent.)
Thank you again, none.
768x432 (CC website) isn’t much, but it is an improvement over 624x352.
I had NO idea. Thanks – will investigate!
Thank you, none!
It’s good to see that clip of Colbert and I’m amazed that before it was posted today I couldn’t find anything Colbert-related on Usenet.
It won’t look great blown up all the way to 1080p, but on the other hand better to have it than not!
This request is a bit of a reach.
I’ve got a LOW resolution copy of The Colbert Report from January 10th 2012?
It’s the one where he discusses the Star Wars Holiday Special and, well, I’d just love to have it even in 480p. The copy that I’ve got is THAT bad.
I hate jumping on bandwagons, but one of my issues is with streaming-only bonus features.
There’s no reason why I should be required to watch a highly compressed 1080p streamed source just to get it with an isolated score. Could easily have been part of the discs.
Exciting. Looking forward to hearing more about the ultimate edition of this travesty.
(Note: Using “travesty” in the loving sense. Same as I’d use for the Ewok films, and MANY steps above the Prequels.)
Anyone “out there” able to do scanning? I’d gladly pursue the film but don’t know what I could do with it if I won.
That said, they say there’s no sign of opening credits in the opening of the film and they don’t guarantee completeness.
It’s a DVD I’ve given to my former students who pursue teaching maths.
Do you need more support to engage?
It looks nice on my 4K TV.
However, since it’s been years since I saw the film, and then it was the non-anamorphic DVD release, I don’t really have any basis for comparison.
That WOULD be exciting!
I don’t know anything about getting stuff scanned, but would gladly contribute to an effort!
hers? Can any of us really know?
Sad and ridiculous that we cannot.
Well, the Emerald City Comic Con us over. When I was exploring the show floor I was surprised a) to find three booths selling obviously illegal DVDs (expected only one or two) and b) find the SWHS at only one of them. I had also expected bootleg Blu-rays but only saw legitimate ones and those at only one of the three.
The SWHS was packaged badly in a thin case. Needless to say I left it there.
And thanks for a comparison. It’s enlightening. I may find myself switching discs to try to compare, but that will probably be an exercise in futility.
Is it odd that they would use the same master but tinker with the colours?
I’m personally a bit annoyed. The Disney Movie Club got me my copy a day early, so when I got home from work last night I tore open the parcel and — they accidentally sent the BD instead of the UHD. It’s going back to them today or tomorrow.
We don’t want to make more work for the moderators.
That said, perhaps account customization (thinking specifically of using a picture) could be tied to donation.
But it would create its own rat’s nest of tracking how long ago someone donated, let alone which donation goes to which account. (My donation came from a different email address than the one I’m registered under at OT – swhs(dot)geek says more about me than the address that’s just my name, but that’s the one setup in PayPal.)
I’m not sure when I first encountered OT. It was definitely after I bought a copy of the SWHS on eBay and before I purchased a KCCI disc of the SWHS from a member who would shortly be banned for selling his work.
Over those many years I encountered a community that’s made me laugh at times and reassured me that I’m not the only with a bizarre love of the SWHS. It also introduced me to Adywan’s Revisited version of Star Wars and let me see what this thing called The Phantom Edit was all about. I got great feedback for my own project, got valuable help in response to random questions, and I hope to someday do a followup to that disc.
And lately I’ve encountered some people doing amazing work preserving projector film. That never would have crossed my mind a year ago.
Thank you, Jay, for all those years. And to Anchorhead and SilverWook for the fact that the site and its community has a future.
Small donation made.
I’m curious if there’re data for Disney wanting desperately to be out of the physical media game.
I’m looking forward to the 4K release of The Little Mermaid next month. And although they aren’t heralding the disc’s release, its 4K status could mean they’re in it for a little bit longer.
That said, I hate the extra extras on the digital releases. There’s no reason the deleted scene for The Force Awakens or the isolated score shouldn’t have been on the discs. I can see that as an attempt to lure me away from physical media, and I thank YouTube for the dispersal of the scene from TFA.
I did a quick Google search (ewok adventure 720p) and found a page that offered a 720p version. Or claimed to.
Dimensions turned out to be 540x960.
Quality seems good but not the resolution we’re seeking.
And right you are. I’d completely forgotten that they were presented in better than television quality elsewhere in the world.
To the best of my knowledge, the only official digital release is the double-sided DVD.
You asked about a fan-made upscale, though… I haven’t encountered one.
I’ll echo this statement.
Not sure if it helps, but I was one of the donors for The Little Mermaid and in a PM I was explained why that one is also limited to donors. All I can say is that the reasons sounds legit to me.
I hope the panel went well!
It did go well! I’m guessing there were around 400 people in the room. And I’m hoping video of it will surface at some point.
