***The "SPIDER" Trilogy DVD Info and Feedback Thread***
Time
I was going to ship the next day but found out about the lock up on some DVD players. I did not want to send a set that would not work on some DVD players. There are old DVD players that do not like it when MPEG 2 files are join together. I did not think it would take a week to find a fix but I was able to find a fix until I start to edit with DVD-RAM. I try to make up for being late. If there is any problem with the DVDs I can replace them for free. And I can also make up for it with a redit version of "Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi" redit from the real Star Wars DVDs. I will send the DVD set out to one person after that if you want to upload them go head I do not care. I'm sorry the Dics got messed up.

Rikter you know you have to grow up your a baby. The reason I charge is simple I have to rip the DVDa then burn them then stand in line at the post office. Im not doing this for free. second I do not care if people downlaod this et for free. I glad they will be for free. But if some want me to get off my ass its $20.00 and the reason it took long is that I want to send out a better set. I talk about this on my post that is state here. I had a set I was going to send out but after I found the problem with old DVD I said I can not send out this set so i played around with my video editting to find a fix. This set will not have any problems playing back on any DVD player that can play DVD-R

I fixed the lock up problem from the edit parts of the movie where the LDs get flipped. Before I was editting with MPEG2VCR and join the files back to make one big file. This was a problem with old DVD players about six or so years. This is how I fixed the problem with my Panasonic E80. I first recorder to the hard drive. I can record to DVD-RAM but have read that at the end of the disc the bitrate may drop to keep with the time settings. So i record to the hard drive first. Then dubbed to DVD-RAM there is no recoding going from hard drive to DVD-RAM. DVD-RAM or if you have a recorder that uses DVD-RW they use a VRO file. Ever thing is in one file system. I then went to the DVD-RAM and editted out the laserDisc flips. It deletes that part of the file you do not want. Then took it back to the PC and use MPEF2VCR and "DeMultiplexer" the file. Reason for doing this you can not play back the file right after delete after you do any thing to the VRO file. You also have to do this if you record in FR mode if you have two or more rcordings in the VRO file. Then I "Multipexer" the file to together. "DeMultiplexer" what it does it split the Video and audio into two files and "Multipexer" put the two files back together. There is a small light pause in the flips. But this copy will play in any DVD player that can play DVD-R. Also when the package was late I gave out two extra DVD's to make up for being late.

Recording from the VHS tapes
Time
One VHS you will have macrovision problems this copy protestion for VHS. You need a small box to remove it www.facetvideo.com has one CompUSA sells Sima one. I have had two Sima boxs in the past one works great and the other one had tons of problems. Do not know how good the new ones are. If I was you I would buy a Laser Disc player from Ebay and get the THX face set. And get a Panasonic DVD recorder this is how I made my set. I even have the closed Caption subtitles. Or just get a set from some one else that made a DVD set. Forget about VHS.

Info: This person claims to have the original Star Wars trilogy made from the original prints.
Time

Here is a link. It seems that some people that work for George Lucas do have the original Star Wars trilogy made from the prints on the film. if the sets are available which I think they do. Sooner or later they will surface. Now for this post that this person says he has the original Star Wars trilogy take it with a grain of salt it may be true and maybe false.

Idea: Let's do a documentary about the original Star Wars trilogy.
Time

I was thinking about doing a documentary about the original Star Wars trilogy. As in other fans what they like it more then a special additions. interviewing people from the mall and video stores and also just regular people that are fans of the original Star Wars trilogy. And why we are not happy with the changes of the films. And also show our unhappiness with some of the other products that fans have bought. example laserdisc 1989 and 1992 Star Wars release had widescreen problems. Also the newest Star Wars DVD has a 5.1 sound problem. and also the small line changes redits of Star Wars films that the common person does not know about.

this documentary could be downloaded for free. or sold in video stores around the world. The main point is too get a bigger push for the original Star Wars trilogy.

Info: Stop ebay pirates
Time
Ebay does not care about bootlegs. All they care about is getting the money for people posting. second even I do not care about Star Wars bootlegs. Reason for this George Lucas has screwed his fans by not releasing the original trilogy on DVD. thirdly widescreen laserdisk 1989 and 1992 both widescreen versions have letterboxed problems. George Lucas sold these laserdiscs with no problem. the Star Wars definitive collectors edition box set was also effective the first run of printing. Fox only wanted to replace one of the disc. this was Empire strikes back with the scene with Princess Leia Walden a scene on the millennium Falcon. The other laser disc were also defective. closed captioned subtitles did not work and also they had a weaker soundtrack. The second printing had close captioned subtitles and a better soundtrack. Also the new Star Wars DVDs that just came out this year. Star Wars 5.1 has a sound problem. George Lucas does not want to fix the problem.

when Star Wars episode one came out George Lucas said that no DVDs would be released until episode three was finished. So he released it on VHS. A lot of people do not like episode one so he decided to release episode one on DVD two year's later. When episode two came out there were still a lot of people that did not like this movie. and after episode two a lot of people gave up on Star Wars. He knew that most people do not even care about Star Wars. to pump Star Wars up he released the Star Wars SE 2004 trilogy on DVD. And also gave us a bad soundtrack to a new Hope Star Wars with a bad 5.1 soundtrack.

George Lucasis is full of crap. he tells the media that the reason why he brought out Star Wars on DVD. Is that there are too many bootlegs. As we all know Star Wars fans have repeatedly bought these movies over and over again. And it is extremely rude to say these are the movies I want out there. with know consideration for the fans that have watched the original Star Wars movies for 20 years. They should not have to be a web site like this to preserve the original trilogy. Every other director except for Blade Runner has had two different directors cuts.

if George Lucas will not bring the original Star Wars trilogy to DVD. Then I just do not care at all. I do not like the man really that much any more. I did not have any problem with the special editions if he wants to do changes to his films but not to release the original films is arrogant in my opinion.

I want to say one thing about George Lucas is a very nice person from a certain point of view. During Empire strikes back George Lucas gave out $5 million dollars in bonuses. George Lucas has also adopted five children. So I think he does deserve credit where credit is due. But my views on Star Wars will always be the same until the original trilogy is brought out on DVD or a higher capacity format.

Original Trilogy set I made from Laser Disc to DVD (using the Faces LDs) (Released)
Time
I want to talk about the E80 and FR mode there are two ways you can use it. One way lets say I record Star Wars on XP one hour mode and I want to get it to fit on one DVD-R well there no way eight gigs will fit on to a DVD-R so there is FR mode that let for a recode to to make it fit. I can aslo recode to EP mode thats the six hour mode. On to the DVD-R. But almost ever one that uses E80 will pick FR mode to recode it looks at how long the video is and picks the best bitrate to do a rencode.

Now for the second way you can use FR mode SP is the two hour mode even after two hours it is still records if you do not turn it off but files get to big to fit on DVD-R. So I use FR mode record in real time. Return of the Jedi is 2 hours and 13 after the 2 hours and 13 minutes Panasonic E80 will stop recording. The great thing about FR mode is that I do not have to record in LP thats the four hour mode.

I can record Return of the Jedi in just SP mode but I have the lock problems where the LDs get flipped. Again this problem is onlly on OLD DVD players. But I want to make a set that any DVD player will play.
