I know, right? I don’t think there’s any better than the R1s for that right now, is there? (Since that series was kind-of a dud, although wasn’t it Michie Tomizawa’s first major role?)

There actually is a R2 Japanese DVD release of Southern Cross (which has been long out of print so you’ll have to get it second hand from somewhere like Yahoo Japan Auctions) but I’m not sure how the quality on the Japanese DVD version compares to the ADV R1 release, personally I’d assume the Japanese release would be slightly better since the Japanese DVDs probably use the original 16mm film negatives for their source as opposed to the nth generation copies ADV had to work with, that and the fact that Japanese companies usually tend to put forth a great effort to try and make high quality releases, I’ve actually been wanting to get my hands on the R2 release for a while now to see how the two versions compare I just haven’t had the money to get it (I may be getting a job soon so that may not be an issue for much longer).

sadly that is incorrect, the JP dvd set is worse than the adv set, chroma bleed, nigh noise levels, basicly taken straight rom the broadcast masters (or degraded copies atleast) the ADV set attempted to fix them but overall ruined them, removing most colors, leaving mostly heavy blacks and blue tones throughout the episodes, ive attempted to color correct the ADV set but it simpily cant be done, and the japanese rellease will cost you arround 500$

Like I said previously I didn’t know what the quality of the R2 DVDs were like and just assumed it would be better since it was a domestic release in the country of the shows origin, who knows in the right hands it might actually be somewhat salvageable and turn out to be better than the R1, highly unlikely but you never know, I’d actually like to see a good comparison shot between the two DVD releases to see what the differences are.

sorry for the late response

id say the japanese set is the better quality, sharper image, and could be corrected

You probably know already but Night Trap recently had its original source negatives found and scanned for re-release. They basically “remade” the game and it looks gorgeous. There’s a clear demand for projects like that but movement on any of them is little to none unfortunately.

negitives dont exist for night trap, they where lost, they sourced the final timed video master for release
edit: didnt realise the post above me, sorry

Another update, os ive gotten a laserdisc deck, a CLD-D780, and while playing my megazone discs, i found out they have a voiceless audio track, that will come in handy along with adv’s 5.1 mix, in reconstructing the audio mix, it also means i can present deleted scenes without voices, Should i include on the bonus disc, the original megazone 23? with japanese and voiceless audiotracks? or throw in the Streamline dub in there aswell, im also planning an interview with kerrigan mahan (who played mark landry) and am considering asking him to provide his voice for the ending, giving RTM the original ending to megazone 23.

my paypal link for anyone who is interested in contributing.
PayPal.Me/KalhiBalto
the goal is 600 due to the southern cross set being so expensive, tho i may consider gettign the cheaper 100$ laserdisc set (since i now have a player) but im worried about them being damaged in shipping, and the shipping alone to get them into australia.

i realy appreciate any donations!

A lover man is comin’, Wow! So i’m shapin’ up and workin’ out!

Fancy Man!

Gotta work the grind, You gotta take the Key! ow! Whoo!

Fancy Man!

Gotta feel the heat, gotta walk the street! Wow!

Fancy Man!

Start Workin’ Out!

Uhh! Ow! Wow! Whoo!

Back up singers continue

Ow!

Hard workin’ Pumpin’

Whoohoho!

We’re Shapin’ up and Workin’ out!

Huttese lyrics (revised)

Arrroooo!
Wow!
Wai travik zenick Quesi.
Jub col im in hiz jal, Wooh Ooh.
Wa toc peg qui dos gee pif.
Bah Tak tarak Tik Zekzo zat.
Ver jen wih tuster mo vey.
Qui neb be og ezen on.
Harak bak dakti ziqua bah.
Pah Tekta ra Pah tektoh rat.
Laki pevi te.
Hei bah toh meh.
Kech Kiba eek Bah Dah.
Heygi gah Pudah Ak, Pa Vonkeh.
Jus Pah jah goht ‘You’ve Got’.
Got Chab te qua.

We got power/Yub Nub

Freedom!, We got Freedom!.
And now that we can be free, Come on and celebrate!.
Power!, We got Power!.
And now that we can be free, it’s time to celebrate!.

Both films were entirely shot in Northern California, so I don’t see how Jabba’s palace could have been reused, as that set was at Elstree in England. (And probably torn down when ROTJ wrapped production in 1982.) There’s also nothing remotely like Jabba’s palace in Caravan of Courage.

ah, i know their is some “castle interior” that i thought resembled jabbas palace

You might be able to use a quick shot of the Scout Walker pilots …

Good suggestion!
I guess with some very good sound editing the pilots could hear the catapult firing and the grenade falling.
That way no need for matting or extra shots.

Perhaps if I use the classical bomb falling whistle and have the pilots react to that?

i can assist if need, since audio work and foley si a passion of mine

Project update: so far nothing major n terms of editing has happened, but 2 new sources are now in my possession, a 1987 Rank home video Tape (PAL) And the Netherlands LD release, im amazed i scored the LD at all, only 50$, newly listed on the LDDB, ill most likely use a combination of LD and Tape audio, i can confirm my LD is safe of any disc rot, as its been amazingly preserved, only issue is the i believe dutch subtitles, ill be using the LD as a source for mostly the opening, for the text elements, and combine them with the clean opening from my megazone LD’s, as well as using its ending, tho the opening will require some newly animated segments, as i believe harmony gold sent the animation back to the studio to be retouched, as the shot of earth was flipped (non flipped in the storyboards, but probably changed for artistic reasons) as well as a new heat shimmer effect (originally done optically) to bridge the newly corrected shot into the original footage, as well as one shot being utterly replaced by a new digital correction. i may need help with that since i am not an animator. i can provide high resolution images for the corrections needed if anyone wants to help out.
That’s all for now, once the LD arrives, and i get my hands on my deck, ill put up some scans of it, as no one has made scans or taken photographs of the tapes and LD’s since the early 2000’s

I had already started working on the Cantina Ponda Baba Decapitation and alternate content.
In this Version we have a close up on Dr Evanzan as he approaches Luke before tapping him on the shoulder you can hear his shuffle in the sound mix so it’s actually a legit take.

The whole Lightsaber fight has been tightened removing extraneous material so everything happens in real time and there is nothing happening twice.

Ponda Baba Decapitated off screen with sound effects, his head replaces the Wolfman arm and gun as his hands are different but his head sure is not apart from it’s come off his shoulders.

Greedo Takes an interest in Han Solo Bargaining with Luke and Obi-wan again I think this scene was moved so again legit and better.

Luke and Ben Leave earlier I think it makes more sense.

Han Get’s held up by Greedo all in the same scene unbroken quick cut away to cantina weirdo.

There is no doubt about Han shooting first

Here it is.

Feedback as It’s in rough form if there are no suggestions for anything then I will do it in better quality.

Enjoy and Thanks

Fantastic work! especialy nice to see han firing his D-LL, where the hell is that shot from?

i wouldn’t count this as a scene, but audio, i know their is one doccu that features alternate lines for the opening of ROTJ, c3p0’s line is usual, you’d probably short circuit, but ive heard a clip where its clearly unfinished (no vocal processing applied) where the line is “you’d probably disintegrate” witch i belie is suppose to be foreshadowing their capture and servitude to Jabba and his torture droids

OT Saga extended Edition

i wouldent recomend using audio from the radio drama, ive attemppted to edit the tosche station scene arrorund it and it just dosent fit well, maby a few of luke’s gruts and observations during the battle ahead but, attempting to replace any dialoque would be rough, if you where to use the 97 jabba scene, id say cut out “your a wonderful human being” specifically human, and morph the cuts together.

Return of the jedi Album (lp) information needed

Hey, im looking for information on the LP of ROTJ, as ive heard it was released or being made before some dialoque had been finalized, and that many unused takes exist on it, any one happen to have a copy of it they wouldent mind DMing me? im interested in checking it out and seeing what i can salvage from it, aswell as wonderinf if it contains any snippets of Lapti nek or jabbas sailbarge music, i know their was one done for a new hope with an added voice over, and i know its been used as a source for the restoration fo the mono mix, but ive seen nothing on youtube abotu retun of the jedi
