Beautiful shots. I also love seeing pictures of the reels and equipment. Thanks for sharing those as well.
It’s very encouraging to see such beautiful shots from those reels. Thanks.
of course, we have a much better print,
and with cleanup and some color correction,
that version looks fantastic!
these look great, even these prints are very watchable, makes me excited for the better print!!
My above post was a reply to this. I can't edit it for some reason. I totally agree and can't wait.
Screenshots now up here.
The first thing I noticed was the contrast (white level); the DVD recorder seems to have captured this very low and I'd recommend upping the white level if you go for a second attempt.
So, this was done with a standalone DVD recorder? Can newer models convert letterbox to anamorphic?
I am really enjoying this transfer msycamore. Thanks for making it available.
Here's a listing on Ebay for 35mm Empire Strikes Back. The description says Fuji film stock and faded so probably wouldn't help much.
These are four track, but it might just be two channel. I should probably at least open it to see the condition inside. Are there albums that utilized four channels on reel-to-reel?
I recently purchased this set on Ebay still sealed. It just seemed like a pretty cool collector's item. I don't know if I dare open it. Would the sound on these be any better than LP or CD? I'd really like to have these transfered to find out.

Has anyone seen this Ebay listing (http://www.ebay.com/itm/200641984289?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:VRI&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2661)?
It appears to be a nice print, but it might be fullscreen. Were fullscreen 16mm prints made as well?
LOL, so much for saying see first post huh Harmy? looks like you are still going to have page after page asking for PM's.
Oops. My bad. Thanks. :-)
Can I get a PM?
PT box cover art now revealed:
I remember the first time I saw the Yoda sabre fight. I laughed so hard, I almost pissed my pants.
New clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vM5zrZ5_9hI
There's a small glitch at the end that I already fixed but I didn't want to recut and reupload because of it.
I'd like to thanks to both DJ and Mattman, who both offered to send me clips from their upscales. This last clip actually uses the sandcrawler from a clip provided by DJ. The background is recreated using this 70mm scan and a custom made sky.
This is great. I am so happy to see this scene restored. I'm thoroughly enjoying all of your work.
I find the idea that they're closing due to fears of backlash is asinine. We are far in the minority, you understand - even if respected internet/video quality critics agree with us, I can assure you the forum would be filled with gushers praising that it was finally on blu-ray.
I must have visited their forums once or twice before and don't remember being impressed with the layout. Perhaps they're considering an upgrade? Whatever. I've got you people.
This is very true. The few times I’ve read this forum I noticed it is mostly frequented by the pro-“Special Edition” crowd. It is an unfriendly forum for original trilogy fans. So, I just choose not to look at it.
Okay, thanks. The download is a little over half way finished.
I'm downloading this for the second time. The first download was missing several files. I should have read this more carefully first. My current download shows 789 files. Is that correct?
