HI-Res Poster Art
Time

ElectricTriangle said:

I don’t know if this has been posted before, but the latest version of the Star Wars Digital collection uses the Struzan art for their covers. Here are some hi-res copies. These have a big logo on top of them and some of the stars are digital edited somewhat, but its a different source for these posters.

Nice, added these to my ‘complete’ collection of Star Wars poster’s I made a thread for in the Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art category. It’s got the highest resolution version of Struzan’s PT and Special Edition OT posters I could find - as well as 1,800 other high-res posters!

Just posted a virtually complete collection of Star Wars posters in Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art category if anyone’s interested! 😃 (Over 1800 posters @ over 6GB)

It’s got loads of rarer posters like Indian Attack of the Clones and Japanese Return of the Jedi ones plus heaps of alternate posters too.

Complete Star Wars Poster Collection
Time

Complete Star Wars Poster Collection: A digital collection of every Star Wars poster officially released in the highest resolution available.

Created through countless hours of google image/tineye search, cropping and painstaking comparison of different sources, this collection has been years in the making. It features over 1800 posters and comes in at over 6GB. In addition to official posters, this collection also contains a large selection of alternate posters.

COMPLETE STAR WARS POSTER COLLECTION

I would love this collection to be a collaborative effort; if you have any posters you could contribute, whether old or newly released, please link them.

My goal is to have this collection be the go-to source for any Star Wars poster, where fans know they can rely on this collection to find a classic or newly released poster in the highest quality available.

It would be great if when a new poster is released, we could have the highest resolution version quickly found, linked and added to the collection for everyone to enjoy.

I welcome any criticism or suggestions on how to improve the collection. Whether that be on how it’s structured, my naming convention, pointing out posters of sub-par quality or spelling mistakes I’ve made. The collection will no doubt be improved under the scrutiny and knowledge of more than one.

Guide:

The posters are organised by film or TV show.

Subfolders or categories found within a film or TV show’s own folder are:

  • Variants: Any poster that differs from another by only format, composition or language of title are located in these folders. Similar posters that feature additional or alternate artwork or images are not kept in the variants folder, instead remaining in their respective main folder. Example, ‘ANH Style A (Twenty Four Sheet)’ and ‘ESB Style B French’ are variants of ‘ANH Style A’ and ‘ESB Style B’.

  • Textless: Non-natively digital posters in these folders are likely to have had their text removed via photoshop. Any natively digital posters are likely to be the very high resolution and extremely large, original, source file created that particular poster. Example, ‘ROTJ Special Edition (Textless)’ and ‘TLJ English (Textless)’ @ 93MB [9737 x 13572]

  • Uncropped: In case I’ve cropped a poster too aggressively or exported with overly harsh settings, I’ve saved the original uncropped file of every poster I’ve altered.

  • Banners: Any long landscape-oriented posters are found in these folders. Many banners also have extremely large and high resolution textless versions.

  • Characters: Character poster sets are grouped in these folders. These sets also often have extremely large and high resolution textless versions.

All alternate posters are situated in a dedicated folder divided into two sections.

  • Alternate Series: Sets of posters spanning the PT, OT or Episodes I-IX.

  • Alternate Singles: Lone posters representing individual films.

Single posters depicting multiple films are set in the main alternate posters folder.

The Future:

My aim with this collection is to have every Star Wars poster ever released available in one place in the highest quality possible. I will continue adding to and updating this collection, filling in gaps and keeping up to date with posters released for any new films in the future. I will also endeavour to upgrade any poster to a higher quality version whenever possible.

Documents:

Worklist Reference: A spreadsheet that catalogues exactly which posters need to be upgraded, found or worked on. It features four tabs:

  • Sub-standard: A list of posters that are displayed but need upgrading due to visible reflections, low resolution, autographs or other defects.
  • Undisplayable: A list of posters that have very low resolution, watermarks or other unmissable defects and therefore can’t be displayed are kept here for reference.
  • Uncollected: A list of poster that are known to exist but haven’t been collected.
  • Identify: A list of posters about which no information is known or whose artist is unknown.

Changelog: The easiest way to see if a new poster has been added or what’s new to the collection in general.

Sources, Credits and Thanks: Links and info on where I collected many of the posters from.

I also have to thank and give credit to DoubleKO whose own collection of Star Wars posters and art constitute a portion of this collection, in particular some iconic PT and OT posters. Aside from the posters in this collection, his also contains a great selection of high resolution promotional art, poster concept art and Ralph Mcquarrie concept art.

Check it out here: DoubleKO’s Star Wars Poster and Art Collection

Most of all, please enjoy all the amazing posters and art! Google Drive isn’t a great image viewer so I recommend downloading the collection for the best experience. You can do that by doing by clicking the folder’s name. You can also look up in the top right and download individual posters. Don’t forget to zoom in and enjoy the high resolution. It’s incredible how much detail, especially the painted OT posters, have packed in them.

You can also search for a specific artist to find all the Star Wars poster’s they’ve created. Try Noriyoshi Ohrai or Drew Struzan. Hopefully you’ll find a poster or two you’ve never seen before!

In addition to this thread, I also plan to post the collection on reddit.

Re the TLJ score-only mix…

One of the few pros of buying digital I guess haha.

You have to go out of your way to access it with the blu.

Logs onto MoviesAnywhere.com, types in code.

Digital, everything in one place. Physical, content split between disks and online. It’s first world problems but when I purchase something I like to have it all in one place. I don’t like being incentivised or in some cases forced to use or “make happen” some sub-par (to blu) digital movie collection service.

This is going to be an non-issue anyway once the TLJ collectors blu comes out…I say praying Disney doesn’t intentionally not sell us all the content available in the best quality possible.

Yeah but it’s not like they’re magically transmitting the score-only copy into your bluray. You have to go out of your way to access it with the blu. Apple’s gone and altered the very product I bought from them (I know it’s more like a licence but you get my point).

Wow, even though I’d bought the film digitally day 1, my copy’s been updated with the score-only version. One of the few pros of buying digital I guess haha.

It looks like he hasn’t posted since Dec 23 of 2017. Hope he’s ok.
If he’s posting somewhere else, I’m not seeing it. Anyone know?
This looks like an incredible project.

Emanswfan last posted on the 4th of Feb in the Han Solo Spoilers thread, so he’s still around. Hopefully just working on this project at a glacial speed, want to see this project keep going so badly!

Wow, late to the news but Blade Runner 2049??!! Harmy that’s amazing!

I had no idea he looked so much like Ryan Gosling!

Sadly, I think he was referring to Harrison Ford… (Star Wars, and all)

Sadly I was simply congratulating Harmy on getting work on such a prestige film. I know better than to try and joke around here when my possible accidental attempt at humour is twice re-written and bested in quick succession 😉

HI-Res Poster Art
Time

Here’s a link to my collection of Star Wars posters:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/z9r9en8oyxs1hww/AAANY-SqXCn85zElBjhLoBCKa?dl=0

It’s still a work in progress. My goal is to collect every official poster ever released, in the highest resolution possible. I think it would be great to have a comprehensive database available online.

So, if anyone has / knows where super high res or rare posters can be found, let me know!

I’ve also collected a great bunch of alternate posters worth checking out 😃

Also, maybe this already exists and I’m totally behind the times – either way, enjoy.

Interesting that Nolan himself is instigated in the production of this remaster. Maybe we’ll see a theatrically faithful version yet?

Just saw the news. Surely if Nolan is ‘“very much” personally involved’ he’ll stick with all the IMAX shots he can…

Editing Software Recommendation

TV’s Frink said:

Vegas Studio is very powerful for how cheap it is. This version (which I’m still using) is old but for $50 you can’t beat the value.

https://www.amazon.com/Sony-Studio-Platinum-Production-Version/dp/B0051M6IPI/ref=sr_1_4?s=software&ie=UTF8&qid=1497222856&sr=1-4&keywords=vegas+studio

The new version is $140, not sure if it’s worth the extra money or not.

https://www.amazon.com/VEGAS-Movie-Studio-14-Suite/dp/B01MZE9CWH/ref=dp_ob_title_sw

I’ve purchased the Pro version but I can’t use it until I’m done with my current edit.

https://www.amazon.com/VEGAS-Creative-Software-639191250019-Pro/dp/B01LXFQJEY/ref=dp_ob_title_sw

Thanks Frink. The latest Vegas Movie Studio 14 Platinum looks really great. That and Cyberlink’s PowerDirector 15 Ultimate seem like my best two options at the moment!

Editing Software Recommendation
Time

I’ve never bought any editing software before, having chosen to just suffer through Windows Movie Maker (with some help from iMovie which I don’t have access to regularly) for my own little projects and Uni assignments. So, with a more substantial doco assignment headed my way, I’ve decided its time I get myself some proper editing software.

I tried to get away without spending a dime and gave Davinci Resolven a go, but my PC isn’t fast enough to run it.

Since many of you here are so knowledgeable about editing and post-production processes in general, I’d like to ask for a recommendation on editing software!

I use Windows and, if the software will last me several years, have a budget of a couple hundred dollars.

I’ll be using the software for fairly general editing, but don’t want to limit myself and get stuck when I become more experienced and attempt more difficult tasks later.

Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith - (2005)

Decided to watch this again, and screw it, I actually like it a lot. This time around I didn’t mind the dialogue or acting, and I adored the music, action scenes, and cinematography. I also really enjoyed watching it. I know I’ll get hounded for this, but I give it a seven out of ten.

I re-watched Sith recently too and found the dialog and acting even worse than I remembered. Anakin and Obi-Wan’s banter during the Coruscant batte is atrocious, even Ian Mcdiarmid is impossible to take seriously. But once Order 66 hits, there really are some great moments. I forgot how powerful Padme’s funeral is with that shot of Anakin’s necklace gift. Palpatine’s speech to the senate intercut with Anakin’s annihilation of the Separatist council is not only striking but thematically deft. Obi-Wan’s “You were my brother” and Anakin’s fear as Vader’s mask lowers: great stuff. Obviously doesn’t save the film though.

The run time flew by too since I was trying to deconstruct character motivations which need a lot of digging to figure out. I also love the score too LuckyGungan.

Using the full IMAX shots will be a separate release. So there will be a version with the all the original Blu-Ray IMAX shots at 16:9.
Then I will add in the full IMAX shots for a separate release. The shots that require the DVD upscales I will try to composite together with the Blu-Ray shots to maintain the most detail (like how I composited together the BB prologue with Blu-Ray to keep the framing the same).
Finally, after this I will make another release with all the shots cropped to 2.40:1 for those with anamorphic projectors.

It’s great you’re being so comprehensive about this. I’m very excited about the version with the all the full IMAX shots included 😃
