Any editing software that you guys recommend?

Maybe I’m late with this one, but I’m doing my editing on DaVinci Resolve. It’s used by professionals, it’s free, and it comes with a lot of tutorials both on Resolve’s website, and on YouTube.

Is that a program where you can take the NJVC despecialized iso blu-ray files and say remove the extra languages and remove the audio from the menu screen, etc.?

The Harmy's Despecialized Edition Blu-ray covers for NJVC v.1 and v.1 BD-25 discs
Time

I’d like to get these in pdf files. i.e. take the master file of these in your editing program and save it as a pdf in the highest quality setting. That way all of the elements would be preserved as I’d want to make a few tweeks. Like on that last cover, the “Star Wars” logo thing looks like the new sequel trilogy style. I’d redo it by having a regular Star Wars logo be normal and moved towards the top. And then below that “The Despecialized Trilogy”. And I’d remove that white box code thing on the back.

Is there anyway you could upload high quality pdf files of these with the text and graphics preserved for editing?

Just curious, what graphics program did you use? Might could instead also upload the master file of these in whatever program you used. I really do like these, but I’d like to make a few tweaks. Let me know.

Thanks

Similar to the above, the ISO for SW DE 2.7 (the MD5s of which all check out 100%) mounts as a DVD in Windows 10. If I try to play the actual film itself from the menu, it fails. When I manually mount it as a Blu-ray specifically in software, it still fails to play the film. Manually playing the relevant .m2ts fails. Copy the .m2ts out of the ISO and playing it from another location fails.

Apologies for the necropost, but does anybody out here have any ideas?

EDIT: It doesn’t work at all in VLC but it does play (from the beginning anyway) in Leawo… but trying to navigate through the file at all crashes the player so only audio works.

I’m wondering if it has something to do with the sheer number of audio tracks muxed into the film’s .m2ts. I’ll try muxing out some of the audio tracks (languages that aren’t English, for example) and see if that improves compatibility…

EDIT 2: Yep, that was it. If I mux some audio tracks out, it plays fine in VLC (both from .m2ts and after recreating ISO from the smaller .m2ts with fewer tracks). Guess that could be handy if anyone else is having the same problem.

I’m having the same issue. I’ve got the movies and bonus content downloaded and the checksums for the movies check out. Though the movie won’t play on the computer, though the bonus stuff will. On some movie players I’ve tried out, the movie will be a garbage mess, though the default English audio track plays fine when I skip around.

What program are you using to remove the foreign language audio tracks? Also is it possible to also remove the audio files that are used for the Harmy title card and for the menu? I’d prefer that to be silent. Though I wouldn’t mind putting in the disc menu audio from the 2011 Blu-Rays on the disc menu on these. Though I don’t have the new 4K Blu-Rays, so don’t know if the menu audio on those are better.

Can this be burned into a regular Blu-Ray?

Someone told me about this and provided a link here. And they said that they thought this version looked better than harmy’s Empire Despecialized Edition.

What terms should I use to search to find this download? And can you burn this on a regular Blu-Ray or do you have to watch it off of a hard drive? I only have a regular HDTV and Blu-Ray player.

Did you add film grain to this project? Also I would love if you could point me to the right direction to find these edits as they look outstanding! Congratulations on this.

v2.0 does not. I left the grain layer off when I rendered it. The next version will have one.
D+77 v2.1 does have a 35mm grain overlay.

It looks like someone has put them on public torrent sites already. I can’t tell you where but a search and you should find them.

I prefer to not have any grain added in.

Part 27 of Star Wars BD 50 is “temporarily unavailable”.

Yeah, I’m also having problems downloading Part 27 of Star Wars BD50. I’ve had to skip downloading that part. But it would be nice if Part 27 was re-uploaded to MEGA.

I ended up being able to finally download Part 27.

I don’t think there’s any sort of timeframe. Harmy hasn’t been around much recently, he’s probably been busy.

I’m looking forward to it. I just hope he doesn’t put all of the matte lines back in. As I really did enjoy the digital compositing on the Blu-Ray’s removing those bad matte lines all through the movie. Also removing the Emperor’s Slugs, etc.

That goes against the whole point of the project, though.

People have their own opinions on it. I think of “Despecialized” by removing the CGI and correcting the edit, etc. isn’t the same thing as putting the matte lines back in that have been removed because the elements/paintings were later digitally composited which caused there to be no matte lines anymore.

Also, some of the matte lines didn’t even show up in the theater, but showed up on the home video release.

Does anyone know around when Harmy will be releasing 3.0 of the Original Trilogy? A couple of years ago, I had planned on waiting for 3.0 of all 3 films before downloading. But if it’s going to be another 2-3 years, then I may go ahead and download the latest now.

Just so this isn’t misstated, this isn’t about rushing for a 3.0 release. I was just interested in knowing so I can have an idea if I should keep waiting, or just download what’s available now. I know a year or so ago there were rumors that Disney was going to be doing a proper release, and so I had waited too hoping that was true. But looks like that isn’t going to happen.

Thanks

I guess it would be worth trying in the future when the next releases drop.

I’m waiting on the next release to download them. That will give me time to figure out all the burning stuff as my Blu-Ray burner has a bunch of settings I don’t yet understand. And it will also give me time to settle on the artwork. I’ve got an Epson 1400 inkjet to print my discs with.

I bet they have filters for this kind of content at public libraries.

That might sometimes be the case, but it was not my experience.

The NTSC DVD5 versions of SW 2.5 and ESB 2.0 are posted on mega, and I ran into the IP address data limits that pop up after 5 GB when I was downloading those DE rars for the first time.

So I used precisely the approach I mentioned above to speed up the operation.

I would download 10 500 MB files at home, and when I could, run to the library, and download 10 500 MB files there, one by one, straight from the links, with no download manager, just to supplement the process. Even if all the files had been posted on mega and my home internet had been dial-up speed, for me, it would have been possible to obtain everything with this method, albeit tediously.

I don’t remember seeing any. But you could always try messaging members here for versions of their designs with excess text taken off so you can add your own “Bonus Features” text.

Or www.fanart.tv has a lot of high-res images you could use to make your own.

Why does that website give an “unsafe” warning when you try to go to it? Looks like something to do with “HTTPS”?

Oh sorry, I think you’re right. Try https://fanart.tv/

They do have a bunch of Star Wars disc art on there. Though not sure if the image is larger than the white area on the Digistor discs I have. As I wouldn’t want there being a white border on the inside or outside of the disc.

As far as the “main” extras and things in this NJVC collection. Does anyone know if they are the highest quality versions available of those extras?

Have you tried messaging NJVC? I doubt he’ll send you any files directly given the piracy issues surrounding his work, but he might be willing to answer that question and/or point you to his sources.

Don’t really think NJVC or others should be pm’d with tons of questions like that. Just put it out there encase others so happened to know.

I had been going back and forth of downloading the NJVC movie and extra discs or making my own collection. As I’d prefer to not include stuff like Jeremy Jahns and things like that. But I figure it would be pretty hard to track down all these extras.

As far as the “main” extras and things in this NJVC collection. Does anyone know if they are the highest quality versions available of those extras? Not sure if there may be higher quality version out there, but maybe they were compressed and reduced i quality to fit on the disc?

If so, I wouldn’t mind having higher quality versions at the expense of not putting on the stuff like Jeremy Jahns and other stuff like that if I were to make my own collection.

Damn. I accidentally clicked the Post button, instead of the next page button.

I wonder what JJ Abrams is going to do for the 3rd movie. I hope we see more of R2D2 & Chewbacca.

Apparently JJ has said he wants to bring all three trilogies together. I hope that’s true, because even if X does come out I’m going to deny its existence and IX will be my last episode. Plus, I hope to see more prequels since we haven’t gotten more than a few references in a line or two in each movie so far

I think JJ is going to retcon what Rian did. It seemed like Rian just threw everything JJ had setup.

Two things I loved about the prequel’s were General Grievous and all the extras George put on the DVD/Blu-Ray. I really think that was one of the great things about Lucas in that he loaded his stuff with extras. TFA Blu-Ray had pretty much nothing. I had to also buy the 3D version to get a few extras that wasn’t on the original Blu-Ray, but it still wasn’t worth the $30 to buy that movie again.

I really hope with TLJ that they bring back all the extras and things. I don’t like the prequels, but did enjoy all the extra stuff that was included on the prequel DVD/Blu-Ray’s.

Which 50GB BD-R discs are the best for these? Or does it matter?

You always want HTL Blu-Ray discs. DO NOT GET “LTH” discs.

Sometimes you have to research if a certain disc is HTL as they don’t always advertise it.

But from my research, it seems the best discs come out of Japan. And apparently most discs are NOT made in Japan. I believe people at one time were saying Panasonic BD-R discs made in Japan were the best. But they seem hard to find and are expensive.

But I would suggestion looking at Verbatim DataLifePlus discs. As those discs should be higher quality i.e. less coasters, has a hard coating, and the data on the disc should survive longer i.e. it’s archival quality. Apparently data on discs can develop disc rot.

Another to look at are Digistor. I believe they only have one line of discs compared to Verbatim. They are HTL, hard disc coating, and are made in Japan. I bought a stack of 25GB and 50GB discs to use for my Star Wars Harmy burns, and also as an extra backup to burn all of my data files to. As even with external hard drives and flash memory to back up your data, those still have a risk of getting corrupted via a virus. Also burning every so often a copy of all of your computer files to a Blu-Ray disc will just give you an additional protection layer against data loss.
