Are you adding subs? I’m making one but it’s still halfway there… They’re timed to the Editdroid version.

Haven’t even thought of that! Yes. The commercial versions will have the Wonder Woman/Incredible Hulk bumper at both ends. Are the subs going to be in English?

No, it’s gonna be Finnish but someone could use the timings after I’ve finished them. But like I said, it will be timed to the Editdroid version only which has no commercials, not interested in watching commercials. 😃

Can’t wait! Hopefully some volunteers from Project Threepio can help out with translating once this project gets more development put in.

Star Wars Holiday Special Ultimate Edition
Time

In the hopes that Disney will release the Holiday Special on Disney+, I plan on making an “ultimate edition,” which includes all of the commercials spanning various TV stations. It will also feature the Spanish and French dub along with a recreated title card. EditDroid’s DVD will be the main video source. You can toggle between having commercials and none at all.

WCBS commercials from Still216’s Myspleen rip
WMAR commercials from the Zion Hybrid Edition v2
KCCI commercials from BLAK0019’s KCCI Angrysun Edition (Not certain if they are original)
WHIO+WMAR (original WHIO release did not contain original commercials)

Station IDs will also be an option. If you plan on watching any of the versions with commercials, you will have the option to enable the extra WHIO audio track from Tasjo’s version 2 DVD. During the credits, there is an additional voice-over promoting “The New Avengers” and “Sweet Hostage.” They are part of CBS’s Late Movie block.

New details in regards to video and audio quality will be shared soon.

UPDATE: 5/22/19
I compiled a spreadsheet detailing all the sources used for this and the various commercials. Progress has finally started, as the French intro is being recreated. Unless Myspleen has freeleech on, I need someone to download/share Tasjo’s WHIO version 2 and the KCCI Angrysun Edition. Subtitles are now being accepted, too.

UPDATE: 5/29/19
Finished syncing up the French starfield with the English version. This is what the background is going to look like. Apparently, the English version of the starfield shot is cropped on the left side, while the French is cropped on the right. Link. Thanks to zman’s suggestion, I’ve downloaded BLAK0019’s KCCI Angrysun Edition from Usenet. The only trouble I have is identifying the font used for the French Holiday Special logo. It’s either Tw Cen MT,Tw Cen MT Condensed Extra Bold, Bahnschrift SemiBold Condensed, Century Gothic, Arial Bold, or a weird mix. (To see the text, please open it in Word.) This is the reference being used.

I goofed up during exporting and part 3 is in 2 sections, but here it is

SWHS Part 3 A: https://mega.nz/#!SDY1gQDL!A7ZN-fWi7gUg39jYKkdZqNuG0Szd3NCb2Hm_ZpAAeGw
SWHS Part 3 B: https://mega.nz/#!eTpxVCgI!JRruymUaHx6yBiKy5Bz1NTcp9Yz2TFDLG_K6h85n6jA

Part 4 is also broke in half, but I was able to put it back together

SWHS Part 4: https://mega.nz/#!qDwG3KzK!sQ8HV_LfhSZ9-DsijOrs_mOnlwDx4LO1Of9kGIrIxQU

Part 5, 6, and 7 are coming out tomorrow and part 8 plus the full version is coming out on Sunday

Please leave any suggestions for the Version 1.1 release of this for the December holidays! I would also be happy to let anyone try to make their own corrections as well and send it to me so I can put it into the main project.

enjoy!

There is to much different parts to download,
and it comes with sound artefacts when we edit it (in the cut transition).

In an other point of vue, we are loosing video quality in editing the movie again in H264.
It is to bad 😦

It should be great to have one export with your complete movie (MKV codec gives the best result),
You should use “Wondershare ultimate converter” software for this (With an H264 MKV with a personalized output using “20 000” or “15 000” KBp).

If you are missing space on your computer, you can use an external hard drive for your Adobe Premiere Master output,
or using an other codec like “Apple Intermediate codec” which is not the best but will give you a lighter master. And it should be good enough for the H264 conversion.

Oh something else:
Can you use the deleted scenes and the Animated segment from the bluray to insert in the movie (for example the scene with Vador and the officer in the Death star corridor, Tatooine streets, etc…).

Thank you again

There is no “MKV codec”

I also recommend prores as a mastering codec. While technically not lossless, the results are fantastic and efficient (10 minutes of 59.94 SD should be about 10gb at prores HQ).

The mp4 settings listed above by botox1 would also look great for distribution.

I wouldn’t change the bitdepth out of the default. I think the confusion here comes from Adobe. They list total bit depth instead of bit depth per channel (channels being Red, Green, Blue, and Alpha). So with RGB footage at 8bits per channel, you have a total of 24bits. Most software, however, would simply call this 8-bit or 8bpc.

It wouldn’t be a good idea to go with Prores, because making a distribution copy would result in another lossy conversion on top of that.

Hot damn, a 10 minute video of 1080p 59fps video is 50 gigabytes…

Okay guys, this is actually really frustrating. An export of 26 minutes racks up to 650 GBs I have no clue why it does this, but I would really appreciate some help. If someone would be kind enough to PM me a link of how I can export this without bricking my PC, I will be able to show the world this monstrosity in full HD.

peace

This sounds like you’re exporting your edit at unnecessarily high settings.

yea I lowered it quite a bit, but its still coming in at around the same number

What bitrate and codec are you using to render at?

Its a slightly modified version of DV NTSC booted up to 59 fps. The depth is at 24 bit.

I’d recommend a lossless codec, such as Lagarith or Huffyuv over NTSC DV. Since you’re using DV, the color-space gets downgraded to 4:1:1 which is less than DVD. The bit depth is wayyy to high. 8 bits are typically enough for HD sources.

EDIT: When you say 59fps, do you mean 59.94?
