Star Wars 1992 VHS styled DVD covers
Time

crissrudd4554 said:

In the meantime, I created a DVD sleeve based off the outer box. Another option I figured I could do is getting a DVD case thats fits three discs and use this. The poster collage is a bit softer looking than I’d like it to be but its not too bad. I adjusted it best I could. It’ll likely look better in a cover. If anyone wants a full sized copy PM me.

I decided to do a complete revisit of this and have come up with two versions. The front cover is faithful to the original outer packaging while I tried to incorporate elements of the inner packaging for the back. The first I left the GL message on the back while the second I replaced this with the “Here’s the trilogy…” scroll text while moving the GL text to a separate insert that can be placed inside the case.

Version 1.

Version 2 (with insert)

<strong>2006 GOUT</strong> : The changes to the OT films &amp; general 2006 GOUT DVD discussion thread
Time

Nien Nunb said:

Non anamorphic DVDs were of little consequence to me until I bought a Widescreen TV, which was literally within the same month after the GOUT DVDs were released. I knew what anamorphic enhancement was but it wasn’t that big a deal to me one way or another when I was watching DVDs on a CRT television.

Yeah this was the same case for me in 2006. I lived in two houses and at one I had a Sanyo CRT in my bedroom, the other a Toshiba CRT with a built in DVD player so it didn’t matter to me. Didn’t get my first Widescreen TV til 2008 which was when it really began to sink in how crap the GOUT situation was.

Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes

No that’s not what I meant. I’m speaking in regards to you claiming they fixed what they fixed cause they “care about the original films”. If they cared for the original films then the original versions would still be around. Additionally it isn’t exactly fair to refer to the “flaws” as such when they simply are a reflection to the limits of technology to the time.

Vader's voice change in the OT
Time

The SE’s mixed Vader’s voice differently in both ANH and ESB. The 1997 SE of ANH has his voice mixed the same as the original but the 2004 DVD mixes it to where it’s a bit cleaner sounding than the original but very soft. For example during the dual with Ben his voice is almost drowned out by the lightsaber sounds. Sadly this is how Vader has sounded on every release since. Empire on the other hand amplifies his voice beginning with the 1997 SE and has remained so on subsequent versions.

Han Shoots First - Any valid reason to not have Han shoot first?
Time

Here’s another wrench for ya. George argues that Han shooting second makes him like a cowboy. Well there is a factor in this that George leaves out. Han is already shown drawing his weapon moments before the actual kill. In Westerns it’s typical for the shooter to draw at more less the exact second of the kill. Han wouldn’t be drawing his weapon at all if he had no intention to kill Greedo.

And for me Gary Kurtz put it perfectly. (paraphrasing) “Han had to kill Greedo or he would lose his life”.

Frankenstein (1931) Audio Preservation (Released)
Time

So I gave my test disc a spin and for the most part I like my results. Given this is the first time I seriously undertook something like this not bad! Obviously some scenes sync better than others but then again I also included the BD track as is on my disc and most of the same parts were still slightly out of sync so I attribute that more to the video file I used rather than my editing. Keep in mind most of the editing I was doing was to keep the audio in sync with the BD audio rather than the video. Anyways I did some hard work and I hope everyone likes it so shoot me a PM if interested. I’ll also be making a separate track that keeps the “God” line censored if anyone is interested in that! For now happy holidays everyone and thanks for your time and interest! 😃

Frankenstein (1931) Audio Preservation (Released)
Time

So I’m pretty close to the end of the movie. About 55 minutes in. Went back and re-tweaked a few scenes and made tweaks to others but I’m getting stumped trying to properly sync the scene where the villagers go to the gather to see the burgomaster. Hope to work around that maybe tomorrow and hopefully more or less have the rest of the movie completed tomorrow if not Saturday. Almost there! 😉

Info Wanted: 2011 vs 2019 blu rays
Time

I think Disney/LF was trying to clear inventory of the 2011 versions. No different than how the 2019 DVDs also had the 2011 versions. It was just more simplified to have the 2019 versions pressed on standard BD for the saga set.

Can you clarify what the 2019 Blu-ray scans were? This is all so damn confusing. According to what’s spoken about on page 7 they make it sounds like the 2019 blu rays are the ones you want if you want the new scans, but I was under the impression that no new scans/color corrections happened to the movies until the 2020 releases

No the 2019 versions are the same that are on Disney+ and in the complete Saga set. It was the 2019 INDIVIDUAL BDs that reused the 2011 versions. No additional changes were made for 2020.

Frankenstein (1931) Audio Preservation (Released)
Time

Sorry no updates yesterday. I was tired and my hand was/is still sore so I took a pass on working on this yesterday. But anyways I worked on it a bit today. I’m fortunately past where I was initially by the time I had chosen to start over so that’s a plus. Furthermore side one of the LD has been more or less sync’d up! Yayy!

Anyways I used the BD audio again to restore the “God” line blah blah blah you know this but I’m also gonna make a separate track when this is all complete that has the censored audio of the scene from the LD (incase anyone wants that for whatever reason). The following scene with Baron, Victor, Elizabeth, and the Burgomaster syncs perfectly, had to make minor tweaks during the transition to the next scene to sync that properly, but after that things get kinda crazy.

The discussion scene between Henry and Waldman syncs fine, the Monsters intro syncs fine but around the time the Monster rises from his seat looking up at the light it gets slightly out of sync but I fixed this. It then stays in sync til around when Fritz runs in. I was able to fix this but after that I had to make some compromises.

First it goes out of sync midway during the portion where they all are trying to restrain the Monster. Given this is the final scene of side one another issue I knew I would have was properly transitioning side one to side two. I again turned to my trusty VHS audio to fix that transition but there was still the matter of the last portion of the previous scene.

Well basically from the point of them attempting to restrain the Monster to the end of the scene the LD audio has been slowed down so the tail end will more or less sync up with both the VHS and BD audio so it’s not exactly a proper sync but the results don’t look (or sound rather) that bad. Presently I’m up to the dungeon scene. Had to make a minor tweak early in that scene but so far it seems to be syncing properly.

Anyways that’s about all I got for now. Hopefully will have more tomorrow if not Christmas. Hope everyone’s well and safe and Happy Holidays! 😃

The standard BDs in the saga set use the 2019 masters while the sold separately standard BDs use the 2011 masters.

I’m in the same boat looking to buy the NEW color corrected blurays (I don’t have a 4K tv) Are you certain about what you said? Seems crazy if true. That Disney released TWO different versions of Bluray’s? Do you have proof of this somewhere? Thanks.

It’s discussed in this thread.
