STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time

Short video showing one of the easier fixes being done for ANH:R HD, thanks to the 4k77 35mm scan. Although the video shows just one of the shots which solely uses the 4k77 scan, the others (flying droid and the Ronto in the background) use a mixture of the 4k77 combined with the Blu-Ray, which were a lot more complicated because of lots of rotoscoping and matching the grading to each element.

STAR WARS: GALAXY OF ADVENTURES - New animated shorts
Time

Trailer for the new animated shorts series “Galaxy of Adventures” debuting November 30th on the new Youtube Star Wars kids channel.

https://www.facebook.com/StarWars/videos/2072401562822611/

"Adventure awaits you and the younglings in your life in Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures, a new series of animated shorts that will introduce the classic themes, pivotal moments, and iconic characters from the Star Wars saga to the next generation.

Debuting on the all-new StarWarsKids.com and the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel on November 30, the first six shorts combine original dialogue, music, and sound effects with bold new animations, and fun and educational add-ons designed to help older fans, parents, and other mentors to welcome the kids in their lives to explore the galaxy far, far away. Additional shorts featuring fan-favorite characters will debut in December, with regular releases following in 2019.

“With Galaxy of Adventures, we wanted to craft something that allowed parents to help their kids take their first step into a much larger world whether they were ready to show their kids the films or wanted to find new ways to explore the content,” James Waugh, Lucasfilm’s vice president for franchise content and strategy, tells StarWars.com.

The dynamic animated adventures are only part of a multi-pronged initiative under the Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures banner, and the beginning of a year-long celebration of Star Wars storytelling, which will culminate with the final chapter in the Skywalker saga — Star Wars Episode IX — in theaters December 2019."

Don’t get all the hate for Ivan. All Youtubers use Patreon. I understand why some might consider it an ethical issue,but its out of our control. Drop it and get over it. He’s gonna be remembered as one of the greatest fan editors because of what he’s doing to TLJ.

Why the f**k should we “drop it and get over it”? His actions could have serious repercussions for every Star Wars fan edits & fan editors. We have seen what happened when Axanar decided to personally profit from a brand they had no rights to. Disney could see what he is doing and decide to clamp down on fan edits. This could put an end to a whole section of the fan editing community through the actions of one person. Years worth of work, down the drain. And, no, not all youtubers use Patreon. NO fan genuine fan editors monetise their videos on youtube, for one, and certainly not set up a Patreon to pay themselves a wage.

4k77 released

A 4K version like this downsampled to 1080p will still look amazing because the source resolution is so high. I have a 75 inch LG UHD TV and a Cambridge Audio UHD media player (capable of reading this file off a USB, I might add), and 4K discs hardly look that different than 1080p to the naked eye in terms of perceiving pure resolution from a normal viewing distance. The best part of commercial UHD technology, IMO, is the expanded color gamut confered by either HDR or Dolby Vision technology, which these projects have not and cannot take advantage at present.

In my experience, there’s a barely perceptible difference in resolution between 2160p and 1080p (I have 30+ UHD 4K movies and have compared several with the 1080p releases); the most important factor is a high quality and high res source scan. That’s what I’m paying for when I buy 4K discs.

That’s because most UHD Blu-Ray releases are really 2k sources upscaled to 2160p. Compare the 1080p Blu-Ray to the UHD Blu-ray of something like Blue Planet 2 and you can really tell the difference. Plus you don;t really need a UHD media player. The LG UHDTV is able to playback the 4k77 file, and other UHD files, just fine via a usb stick/ external usb drive ( I have the 70inch HDR LG TV).

What’s up with these people selling Revisited copies on ebay and other websites acting like they are selling the “custom cover art”?? It’s actually the cover art I designed personally (downloaded from my deviantart page) for the fans to enjoy, NOT for people to be profiting off of… shame shame.

The person selling these bootlegs, Stinkytuna, has been reported hundreds of times and Ebay don’t even bother to do anything about it. It’s disgusting when you see just how many copies he has been selling. He’s earning a fortune from other peoples work.

If not all parts are available, the video is not unzipped? Send me please download link in PM.

all parts are available, there just seems to be some damaged files showing up. But there are enough par2 files to repair any damaged ones. Just download all files, including par2 files, into the same folder and then use multipar or quickpar to repair the damaged files. You can then unzip the file

Just make sure you grab all the Par2 files. There are enough there to repair any incomplete files

ChainsawAsh said:

Assuming it’s a whole reel (which I think it is?) it was likely a scanning focus issue and they decided they didn’t have enough time to rescan the reel.

No, it’s just a section. Even then there are a few shots that are perfectly fine mixed in towards the end.

Time

Finally, thanks to the 4k83 release, i can replace the section of the Official Blu-Ray that is completely out of focus. It’s a shame that the dark areas in the 4K83 don’t seem to contain as much visual information and that the highlights are completely blown out in places, but it’s miles better than what we have officially. How the hell this even got passed quality control, i don;t know. And it’s obvious that they tried to artificially sharpen it too, so they knew about this problem.

exitzero said:

I was watching Harmy’s Despecialized Star Wars, and noticed how much Luke and Leia’s echo in the chasm really boomed with the surround sound. I usually watch Revisted, as that is my definitive version of the film, and didn’t remember that. Comparing the echo to both Despecialized and Silver Screen editions, it seems Revisited’s echo is hushed. Was that a deliberate choice, or something that can be reevaluated with the 720p edit?

I used the 2004 mix as a basis. The echo effect was altered a few times in previous mixes and they went with a more natural one for the SE. I won’t be altering that for the HD version as i will be using the DTS 6.1 track from the blu-rays

dragon said:

Adywan just a minor question is this coming out this year or next year same question for return of the jedi revisited as well. I know your busy with it just curious that’s all.

There is zero chance any of them will be finished this year or even possibly next.

No offense guys, but you were the ones who were insulting him and berating him behind his back, I’ve just gone through this thread after the link was posted on a Star Wars Reddit (SaltierthanCrait) thread, he isn’t forcing anyone to give him money, or pay for the edit, if people want to give him money in appreciation for the work then that is their prerogative.

If he loved doing the work so much he wouldn’t be asking for people to pay him so he can do it full time. He wants to be paid a wage for doing it and pay others in the process. That goes against everything fan editing is about . And the quickest way for Disney to crack down on fan edits and shut them all down. He is profiting from material he doesn’t own the copyright to.

Look who is coming back in the HD version of ANH:R…

Using a mixture of the 4k77 release and the official blu-ray, along with addition restoration i did to the 4k77, removing all remaining film damage, Wolfman has now been restored back in the 2 shots they replaced him in the SE’s

Go and see what it is meant to look like 😃 It looks lovely…

This is why you NEED to calibrate your monitor. If you think that looks lovely then your monitor is not showing you that gif is WAY too shifted towards green. It looks terrible.

Yep that is what happens in a NLE. And that was exported from. Really it needs to be done in Womble probably will then miss out the mpeg decoding issues.

The result is not true unless you apply it directly to the mpeg.

It crash and corrupt the file NLE file again and again. So you have to treat the raw mpeg after proper de-coding not in NLE for true result as it screws up the color once converted or Ripped. I think Womble or do it like I have in a player and capture the result.

So you now blame the editing programs you are using for the bad grading just so you can ignore yet another person telling you that YOU NEED TO CALIBRATE YOUR MONITOR!. And why originally say " this is what it is meant to look like. it looks lovely" and then say, when i tell you how bad it looks, that “oh its the way the editing program is exporting it (when its not)”? Why say it looks good to you in the first place? IT’S YOUR MONITOR. Spend the time calibrating it.

So what NLE program are you using thats exporting and creating all these colour issues?

People are offering you advice, telling you what you are doing wrong, and yet you chose to ignore them, get snarky towards them and carry on doing it the same wrong way and blame everything apart from your monitor.

Michel Parbot &quot;The Making of The Empire Strikes Back&quot; Documentary - FULL VERSION FOUND!!!!!
Time

As most of you may know, ever since clips of this documentary surfaced online a few years ago, this became one of the “Holy Grails” of Star Wars. While the quality isn’t great, at long last we get to see the full 1 hour documentary. This is a direct rip from the DVD that i was given. The original ISO file will be found soon on the spleen and on the usual SW usenet group.

This seems to be from a different source than the one that StarWarsArchives originally posted clips from, so i decided to make this a new topic.

Enjoy

May I ask what are the origins for this? Is it from someone who had worked on the document? I thought there were no copies made.

Would it possible to use some of the better footage edited into this?

Origins are from a PAL VHS someone got in France from an online auction many years ago and the person copied it to his pc using a usb device that only recorded in ntsc. thats all the info i know.

Also this doesn’t seem to be from the same source as the one StarWarsArchives has, so there is more than one source floating around and not just the one as originally though

Yes, i now have it. The quality, as i said, isn’t great. Not as clear as the clips that were posted by starwarsarchives but, as far as i can tell, it is the full documentary. I got it as an NTSC DVD VIDEO_TS folder and is only around 2.5gb in total. The original disc will be uploaded in the next few days. I have only skimmed through it at the moment so i’ll do a test burn to see if the DVD authoring has been done right and fix any problems with that first
