GOUT with prequel music/leitmotifs?
Time

yotsuya said:

I see each trilogy having its own themes. There is some crossover, but adding too much PT music to ANH would not be a good thing. It is the only film I think needs some editing (when doing a fan edit) and I intend to add Vader’s theme in a couple of places. It has to feel natural and something you’d almost miss. Though a small bit of music toward the end of the duel might fit in nicely.

These are my thoughts exactly. I wouldn’t want to change the tone of the film in any major way, or overshadow an already incredible soundtrack.

There were a very small handful of moments during my last watch through where I was thinking a subtle use of some of the prequel leitmotifs would be fun.

GOUT with prequel music/leitmotifs?
Time

Hey there! Had a quick question (I’ve done a bit of searching but haven’t turned up much.)

I’m generally a purist when it comes to the OT (Harmy and 4K projects are my go-tos) but I was curious and am wondering…

Are there any audio edits synced up with GOUT that utilize music/leitmotifs from the prequels? I’m not looking for anything TOO heavy handed but something like “Battle of the Heroes” during the ANH duel, things like that?

Thanks!

4K83 Released
Time

Thanks so much for your insights!

Am I mistaken or was there shot by shot color regrade for 4K77? Or is that 4K77 1.4?

Is there a color correction/regrade for 4K77 with DNR or are the options basically either the 4K77 DNR Release or 1.4 - which has color corrections but not DNR?

Sorry if I’ve used any incorrect terminology or am making this more confusing then it needs to be. A lot of this is new to me.

4K83 Released

Does anyone know if there is a FrameCompare available for 4K83 versions 1.1, 1.2.2 and 1.3?

Long time Harmy viewer here thinking of making the jump to the 4K Project for my next viewing and having trouble picking which versions I should go with.

I’m from a somewhat younger generation of the OT fandom (in my 30s) and, I think like many from that demographic, generally prefer the “remastered” look, versus the “feels like you’re in the movie theater in 1977/80/83” visual experience that I think a lot of older OT fans gravitate towards.

Because of this, I’m thinking of going with 4K77 1.4. I’m less sure of what to go with for 4K83.

Thanks for any input anyone might be able to offer! Really wonderful that we OT fans have so many truly fantastic options to choose from.

Star Wars 4K77 - Regraded - No DNR

Total noob question here. Is a regrade essentially just a frame by frame recoloring? So this is essentially a version of 4k77 that an editor has gone through and recolored frame by frame for consistency or whatever?

So the original 4k77 release was “as is” whereas you could view this a version of 4k77 that has had specifically the color “remastered”?

Thanks!

Yes, I think that sums it up quite nicely. This has indeed been remastered, because Sanjuro was kind enough to send me his project files, and I could therefore apply his new grade to the lossless master and generate a new version - which is better than what usually happens, where somebody takes the h.264/5 version and regrades that, resulting in a slight generational loss.

Thanks for the clarification! Is the version you’re referencing the “Star Wars: 4K77 v1.4” release I’m seeing floating around? Want to make sure I’m actually grabbing the version we’re discussing.

Ahh should've assume that, sorry!

The current version of Star Wars Despecialized Edition Remastered on Usenet is named Fixed_DeEdv2.0. Does anyone know if this applies to the audio issues listed above or does this release need the updated audio tracks swapped in?

Thank you!

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

Hello, all. New to the forums here.

Harmy, I would just like to take a moment to say thank you. I own the original trilogy on VHS and I remembering the dismay I felt at popping the first DVD release of a A New Hope into my player and finding there was no option to play the theatrical release. You're doing fantastic work to a dedicated community. Can't thank you enough.

I have the first Despecialized Edition of A New Hope and just got The Remastered Version (2.0, whatever people like to call it) via TehParadox.

I noticed on the first post of this forum 

!!!Important!!!

The 640Kbps 5.1 track has some bad compression issues.

The 77 Stereo and mono may have been affected as well.

Replacement tracks are available from tehparadox and usenet.

I was able, via TehParadox, to find Star Wars Despecialized Remastered on Usenet which was fantastic but I was unable to find any of the fixed audio tracks. The fixed Spanish and German tracks are on Usenet but not the English. Does anyone know if the English fixed audio remains available via Usenet?

Thanks for any help you can offer! Glad to be a part of the forums.
