Is preserving the HD broadcasts of the 2004 version of the trilogy even relevant anymore.

No, it would be foolish to spend any time working on any project till the official release in about 1 year. There's no guarantee that the blurays will equal or surpass the cable captures because there have been many official releases that were major fails but if they do end up being great then it would be a huge waste of time. Not to mention all the new material and improved HD audio options to work with...

Nice, thanks Wookie for moving fast towards the end here.  Though I get that Menace will porbably need/take more time as your crescendo.  I just looked at Across the Stars again and it looks like a would be a real huge pain to do.  I can't help but think if it has to be a new version sans the BTS footage, seeing how thats all in unavoidable SD.  Like Battle of the Heros I'm sure it'll be great, but if its too hard don't feel that extras for the BD50 are an absolute must.  Thanks again.  And now my interest wanders to the future and this mystery mono project.

I'm doing it because I want to for my own collection.

BD25 version of Clones is going up now. The BD50 version will take a little longer since I have to re-create the Across The Stars video for it.

 

Also, I have a new top secret Star Wars project I am in the planning stages for and I need the original 1977 mono mix as exact as it can possibly be to the original. I know the members on this forum are more in tune to the details of that sort of thing and I need someone to hook me up with it. Lossless if possible, the highest quality the better. Honestly, if it was a bootlegged recording off an old reel I would want to use that too. And no, this isn't an original theatrical restoration so don't freak out, it's something entirely unexpected that I hope will be a fun and interesting take on things. As the project evolves I may ask for other things down the road too.

Full credit will be given if the project sees the light of day.

Sith has been finished for a while but is on hold for a few more days till I can confirm a few things with it.

 

Yes, I need the original un-altered original Sky broadcasting versions to use the english parts from. I lost mine in a tragic mishap of being stupid and not thinking ahead. I would not use any re-encodes since technicaly, all edtions are encodes and/or re-encodes so I want to keep it as pure as possible. I am shooting for BD25's of Sith and Clones so a small handful of you should be happy about that. I have too many things planned for Phantom Menace to not use BD50. That one will be a bitch to finish so it's coming last.

The first one to repost these for me gets mentioned on the credits page of the bluray disks they are on to be immortalized forever! ;)

 

The hv re-encodes are poison and should be deleted promptly.

The files on the group are called FazZFazZFazZFazZ I thought it would be obvious.

The DTS track is toast. I would have to start from scratch and strip all the audio assets from several different sources and remix it again just to make up for those few minutes missing from that shit failed BD burn and then in turn could result in a different sync issues or some other new problem. I don't have the original project files anymore so working the project wil be difficult and tedious.

My work here is finished. What's out there is the last of the pojects I'll be sharing but I'm confident the final 3 are fine. For what small flaws they may have they are still far and away the best of what's currently available and unlike anything that's available.

For anyone finding this post in the future I have posted a rar file to the newsgroups Aug 24, 2009 called "Wookie Groomer Star Wars Trilogy NZB Archive.rar" it contains the 3 nzb files needed to grab the correct final versions without any confusion. Also posted are the raw nzb files ready to drag and drop:

Wookie.Groomer.Star.Wars.Episode.IV.A.New.Hope.2009.Bluray.Edition.nzb

Wookie.Groomer.Star.Wars.Episode.V.The.Empire.Strikes.Back.2009.Bluray.Edition.nzb

Wookie.Groomer.Star.Wars.Episode.VI.Return.of.the.Jedi.2009.Bluray.Edition.nzb

 

Most quality newshosts have a file retention of nearly a year or even longer.

On "A New Hope", the first edition had a slight audio sync issue that I couldn't even detect but a small handful might- I would be inclined to take that one and be perfectly happy. I fixed it and posted again but from a bad Bluray burn so the second one sucked donkey balls because a chunk of movie was missing. The third and hopefully final version "SorryForPostingABadProperNewHopeHereIsAFreshTestedEdition" should be it.

 

If Jedi is crapping durring the end credits I am not going to worry about that. End credits are for losers that refuse to leave the theater :p plus I can't survive any more revisions nor can my girlfriend. I need to get on with my life already.

Guys, I just was notified of the problem with New Hope, it was ripped from my Bluray disk which apparently had failed the burn process without any notification and playback was fine till I went to point in question. This error did not exist prior to the burn.

With the amount of piss and vinager that pours out of this forum I must be some kind of saint to fix this and repost it again, which I promise to do. This was the only release I rar'd down from the bluray disk directly. Empire and Jedi are still raw finished projects from the hard disk that have/are posting so those will not have this problem. I hope you continue to grab Jedi as it should be on par with Empire now. 

 

I'm in the process of correcting New Hope from the original assets.
