The Original Trilogy restored from 35mm prints
Time

I honestly didn’t want to sound rude. If i did I’m sorry. I had a honest question and thank you for taking the time to post your comments to clarify. You have sacrificed so much so people can enjoy your work and i thank you. if i ever save up enough money for my home server i would be happy to lend my processing power to your projects. But for now cryptocurrency miners will continue to jack-up the prices.

The Original Trilogy restored from 35mm prints

I’ve thrown well over fifty thousnd dollars of my own money and probably thousands of hours over the last ten+ years at preserving the original films, both for my own projects and other people’s.
There are some missing frames still, even though I have scanned many original prints. The SE has frames that are missing from the OT, and they are frames that were not changed from the original versions, and will be as close as we can get unless an OT print turns up with those frames intact.
For that reason alone, the SE is worth preserving.
The opportunity to scan the SEs came up, and it was a relatively small window of opportunity, so I decided it was worth holding everything else temporarily to get the SE done while I could. The quality of scanner being used would usually cost about $30K per scan, so it was an opportunity not likely to come up again.

That is from my personal point of view, others feel the SE are an important film in and of themselves, and the theatrical version has never been released in full high definition unaltered, which is kind of ironic.

Either way, it represents an opportunity that I took to get them scanned while I could, and to be honest I ran out of money to continue much work on the OT for a while, and it looked like others would fund the majority of getting the SE scanned, so it seemed a good idea to get that done.

I’m sure others can put forward good reasons to preserve the SE, but the above are mine, even though I am not a fan of them at all.

yea as i said thanks for doing this i wish i could help and thanks for clarifying your reasons i just thought you paused doing the originals and started the SE how close are you to getting ESB in 4k?

It was put on hold while we get some SE prints scanned.
Should be back to this full time around the end of April.

not to be rude but don’t you think you should preserve the 35+ year old films that are degrading vs the 21 year old SE ? and will they all be in 4k ?
like i said not trying to be rude thanks for doing this cant wait for ESB and ROTJ in 4k to go with 4k77

Just want to add that this isn’t actually a deleted, its fan made (as it says in the description). I’ve seen a few people throwing this around as if it were an official deleted scene.

it was actually early concept art but they wanted it to be family friendly so they didn’t go threw with it

Lets address the elephant in the room luke trying to kill his nephew this is how I think it should be changed.

original
i saw darkness i sensed it building in him i seen it in moments when he was dreaming but then i looked inside and it was beyond what i ever imagined Snoke had already turned his heart he would bring destruction and pain and death and the end of every thing i loved because of what he will become and for the briefest moment of pure instinct i thought i could stop it it passed like a fleeing shadow and i was left with shame and with consequence and the last thing i saw where the eyes of a frightened boy whose master failed him

take the SNOKE HAD him and snip it together with the me line from strike ME down with anger and I will always be with you
to make it seem like Snoke was manipulating both sides

every version of star wars 1977 &amp; SE on one 100gb bluray

Even 4K77 will run out of disc space on a 100 GB disc. It will be much bigger in 4K

Most 4k movies are around 50-70gb it might be different for 4k77 but I hope it’s around 50

Is burning a ‘homebrew’ 4K BD (h265, I think) something that is possible to do now? Can you make menus? Can you use all blu-ray sizes (25, 50, 100 GB) so long as your video fits?

It’s interesting that the pressed format of 66 GB does not seem to be a size that you can buy in writeable format. What is it, 2 and a half layers…?

I don’t know all about burning large Blu-ray disks I hope smarter people than me can figure it out but I will do what I can for now to help

Just finished star wars episode 5.5 prequel edit

SparkySywer said:

The movie itself works surprisingly well. I’m impressed.

I like the higher contrast, but I think it may be a little too high. Especially in lighter shots, it looks really overexposed. I’d tone it down a little. However, the reds look really beautiful. I love Palpatine’s lightsaber. I also love how the blue lightsabers look like blue lightsabers, and not the shitty indigo lightsabers normally in the movie.

I’d do more wipes, less straight cuts, especially in places like between Anakin and Padme at their pad and Obi-Wan leaving for Utapau.

Technically, the video seems kinda laggy. I paused the movie and saw what looks like the blur the GOUT has. That usually happens by artificially changing the framerate, but the framerate was never changed. The file’s huge (for an hour long movie, but some shots look a little compressed.

Additionally, if you’re gonna make a second version, I recommend you render it as 1920x816, not 1920x1080. There’s black bars on the side that don’t do anything but take up data and space (and I can’t crop it because VLC is being a jerk tonight).

Still, though, it’s really well-edited, and the scenes used are really well thought out. Good work!

thanks it was my first edit so i am still learning and i thought the video was kinda laggy also. Something went wrong when i rendered it in Vegas pro but i will try to redo it at a later point. one place i thought the video was to over exposed is the scene where palpatine told anakin of darth plagueis
the transitions and wipes i have not included because all the wipe effects i have dont look like the star wars transitions
thanks for the input it helps a lot and i am glad you like it

Hi I have just finished version 0.10 of my fan edit for the machete order. I have cut episode 3 into a 57 minute movie and cut out much of the bulky story line. Like the obione hunting grievous side story and any mention of him and more useles scenes. I am looking for any one who wants to review the edit.
Also any suggestions will be considered.
Current titles I’ve came up with
Fall of the Jedi order
Turn to Vader
Empires Origin
Suggest more great ideas.
Comment if interested in review

Restoring a deleted scene: I can’t help you with that, even the most gifted editors here can’t do this. Most RotJ and Prequel Deleted scenes, though, are actually good enough quality that they’re usable.

Making Transitions Smooth: Really depends on a lot. What scenes? What’s happening? What’s smooth? How’s the transition happening?

Redoing music & sound effects, and removing music & sound: The Blu-Rays come with multiple tracks. If you’re using them, you can just mute one track for a certain part of the movie. If you’re using some other source (like Harmy, for example), I’d recommending just putting in Blu-Ray audio around the change in question.

Color correcting to the OT: I already know you know more about this than me.

The deleted scene is just a little faded only some basic corection would be required its the vader reaching out to luke sceen.
But if you want to try and fix what you can or just review the story i would appreciate that.
