You’ll have to buy the collection like I did (I’m also in Canada). Luckily, the Saga Bluray collection went on a massive sale recently. They used to be $110 and now they’re $75 (or they were when I bought mine). It didn’t seem like a one-time sale, though. It seemed like a permanent price drop. Maybe they’re trying to get rid of them…ebay is a good spot too.

if you join the disney movie club, the trilogy is only 26 dollars. Or 11.97 each for steelbooks of each movie…

In Canada? I just checked out the available Disney movies on that page and there’s not a single Star Wars movie available. Just Rebels Season 3.

I missed the canada part. Sorry about that. I’m in the U.S. and that’s where I found the set. It’s 37 dollars on amazon. 26 for it used on amazon. Or about 24 if you have a region free player…

I was doing some reading and found this…
“AVCHD is formatted for burning onto a Blu-ray Disk (BD) or even a dual-layer DVD (DVD-DL). This version usually downloads as a .ISO file (often with a .MDS file included). Not all soundtracks and subtitles are included in this version due to BD limitations. See this article to learn how to “mount” the .ISO file on Windows, Mac, or Linux.”

I’d like the MKV with all the features and audio, but if you convert this to AVCHD, it won’t lose the additional commentaries and stuff like that ? No loss of quality ?

If I hadn’t been reading all the other stuff you’ve been going on about I’d be totally, completely lost for your meaning here, but I think I follow… Are you still trying to figure out how to get these movies onto a Blu-ray disc? AVCHD as mentioned in the stuff you’re quoting is referring to the extra-compressed versions of the films that are particularly for those who can’t or won’t burn to Blu-ray, but still want a version of the movie to watch or share on discs, particularly cheaper discs like double layer DVDRs. The mentions of Blu-ray Disc and BD limitations, etc. are in regards to the AVCHD video standard used for the extra-compressed version being structured like Blu-ray and playable only in Blu-ray players despite technically being fit on a double layer DVDR. If you are wanting full quality on a disc and you already have the full quality MKV releases, there are some very simple steps to get it to be ready to burn to a BDR, as the video and audio are already made to be Blu-ray compliant (just have to run it through TSMuxer or some such first). If you want menus or anything fancy, in addition to being full quality, get the NJVC Blu-ray images as we’ve mentioned previously. And no (in reference to what you were asking Harmy earlier), don’t ever expect to be told directly where to download such things in this forum, anyone doing so shouldn’t, this is for discussion about these projects, not how and where to get them.

Yeah. I’m going to do the full quality MKV NJVC custom set…if I can ever manage to get my hands on the equipment needed to do it.

Man, I wish I could help, Harmy. You’re just amazing, my friend. I watched the despecialized editions recently (can’t WAIT to make a set of them for myself) and finally being able to see the movies as they were when I first saw them when I was a kid almost brought a tear to my eye.

Just a question. What are you trying to improve ? The movies already look amazing. What’s left to do to them ? When you DO do whatever it is you’re going to do, you’ll announce where to get them somewhere on this site, I assume ?

would you print the art before you burned the disc ?

First off, sticky labels are a bad option, one of the big risks I didn’t notice anyone address this time is that the labels can come apart in the drive and ruin your hardware. Just don’t do it. As for inkjet printable discs, getting a good burn is really the harder part, I like to start with a really, really, really clean disc to reduce the possibility of a bad burn from a laser not writing correctly through a speck of dust or lint or something, and I don’t see how running it through a printer first is going to do that aspect the least bit of favor. Also, why waste ink on a disc that might not burn correctly anyway?

Perhaps do yourself another favor, get some really cheap inkjet printable discs to practice printing on (and I don’t mean BDRs, just get whatever is cheapest between single layer DVDR or CDR), so when you do have a good burn, you can be sure you don’t screw up the good disc with bad printing.

that sounds like a smart thing to do…especially seeing as how extremely expensive burnable blu-rays are…

There are printers you can buy with a disc slot where you place an ink-jet printable disc and then it’s just a matter of choosing the mode in the driver when you go to print. I was lucky as my workplace has a CD/DVD burning robot with a printer built in. Not the best quality, but better than nothing. There are certainly better ones out there.

Is something like that expensive ? Would printed sticky labels be a bad thing ? I know it would be cheaper and easier…

Oh, I do. I have Star Wars on VHS twice and on DVD.

Sorry to be a bubble burster of late, but the Despecialized Editions and were primarily sourced from the blu-rays. So what you’re supposed to own first are either those or IV, V, and VI of the HD Digital Downloads.

I DO have the blu rays.

That’s definitely allowed, no problem - if you can find someone, who’ll do it for free. Or even if you really just covered the cost of materials and no profit was made, I think that would be ok too.

And assuming he meets the other perquisites of owning the official SE releases, of course.

Oh, I do. I have Star Wars on VHS twice and on DVD.

Being given a copy isn’t against the rules as far as I know, but people don’t like conversations about this because selling and buying usually comes up, which is against the rules.

that’s exactly my point. I don’t have the equipment to make a blu-ray set, although I do have the knowledge to do so. As well, I don’t have the ability to print out decent covers…or even bad covers. I wasn’t looking to buy…just wondering if someone could make the set for me. Though I can’t afford the discs now, when I could, I’d be more than willing to send them to someone who could do the set and print out some covers…but I guess that’s not allowed here.

Would it be against forum rules to ask if someone here could burn a copy of NJVC Custom Bluray Set for someone that doesn’t have the ability ?

The short answer is that it is not ok for someone here to do that. And this isn’t the NJVC Set thread, this is.

The long answer would be to ask why you don’t have the ability. If it is a matter of equipment, you don’t need anything all that fancy beyond a blu-ray burner. You can find them for around $50 or maybe less.

If it is a matter of technical skill, you don’t need much. I’m not even in the same league as many on this site, and I figured it out and put up this guide to help. It’s long, but straightforward. Follow it step by step and you’ll do fine.

I have the ability to do the burning, just don’t have the equipment nor the money to buy any. I don’t see why asking someone for help would be against the rules, but I guess this place has rules you have to follow…even when they don’t make sense. Oh, well. Guess I’ll have to wait until Disney gets off the pot and puts them out themselves.
