1997 Special Edition Audio Mixes, GOUT-Synced (Released)
Time

…and completing the trilogy, the 2.3 version of D+77 is also no longer GOUT-synced, restoring the frame at 144053 (frame 144052 is at 01:40:08.169). It seems that as the GOUT itself becomes less relevant to current projects, it is no longer the standard, but rather the complete frame count is becoming more common on modern projects.

I know that I’m being “that guy,” and I know you never want to be “that guy,” but I was hoping that you could make a D+77 2.3 synced Star Wars. You know how much I appreciate the work you put into these tracks.

My understanding is that the two frames are missing from the end of reel 10, which is the transition from Luke jumping down from the carbon freeze platform (having just knocked Vader from there), and the doors opening on the cylindrical corridor he follows Vader down. So it would be right about the 2:53 mark here.

According to Darth Mallwalker in this post, it’s: 150,204 | 1:44:24 | Reel11 | Luke bounces on trampoline (end of Reel10)

I really appreciate the work you put into these.

1997 Special Edition Audio Mixes, GOUT-Synced (Released)
Time

So now the D+80 project has restored two frames from ESB that were missing from the GOUT sync. It seems the GOUT standard is being challenged as restoration projects use fewer and fewer GOUT-constrained sources.

I don’t know if this would be as easy as it was for the 4K83 project, but I was wondering if ESB was also on the boards for updating thus. I ask because the music editing in ESB is quite different between the pre-SE and post-SE mixes, and this is one area where I wholly prefer the “alterations” (which actually brought the score more in line with John Williams’ original intentions) to the original.

While I like the edits of the Hal 9000 tracks made for the entire trilogy, the one for ESB is sort of essential for me for that reason. I would really like to be able to play that mix with the D+80 version.

There were apparently two additional frames in the establishing shot of the fleet at Sullust, rendering any ROTJ GOUT sync audio distractingly out of sync for the second half of the movie.

I really do like watching the Star Wars trilogy with these audio tracks (the one for ESB in particular because the 97 mix didn’t have the altered musical transitions all previous mixes did; I much prefer the original cues as John Williams recorded them).

Out of morbid curiosity, I checked youtube for the same music piece from the Botcon '97 release TIL ALL ARE ONE (which there bears the name"2005") and sure enough, it's shorter than what is on the Intrada/Sony Legacy by about 40-45 seconds. I do have a copy of the Botcon ´97, but it is a copy and I know the way it was done means that there's a small amount of loss in the range. If I had the release OR had a way to get my hands on FLAC /WAV files of it, it'd be great. I could still use the Intrada/Sony Legacy release but use the small transition parts from the Botcon '97 whenever necessary to make certain edit points less problematic.

I have the BotCon release, I can rip cues when I get home from work tonight. Which tracks would you like?

I am surprised nobody asked this yet, so I will.

Does it have the uncut Pastoral Symphony segment? The rest of the video should be fine on the Blu-Ray, but the scene with the black centaur was notoriously edited out of every home video release there was, and the only existing clips currently in circulation are from some European TV airing in the 70s (I think?) that was recorded to a VHS, so naturally it looks pretty bad.

Poita did say it was complete.

RELEASED: "Star Trek: The Motion Picture (Special Longer Version)"
Time

It should be noted that there are several different fullscreen transfers of this film that often have the pick-up on different sides of the screen. For example, when Kirk first beams over to the floating office at the beginning, one full screen transfer shows Scotty, another shows the transporter operator next to him. There are a couple of moments when this sort of thing happens, but that's the one that springs to mind.

If a project were to attempt to combine sources in this manner, the Special Longer Version scenes ought to be checked to see if there isn't more information that could be incorporated because of this.

I don't think there were any audio remixes after the Special Longer Version was cut, though. The VHS and LD audio tracks were identical as I recall — it's a very center-heavy mix.

Additional variations: while the subtitles in the Klingon section were always in the same font, there are some video releases where the spoken Vulcan has the subtitles in a different font.
