The Sith Revealed 2.0?
Time

Hi guys, I'm thinking about doing a version 1.0 of this. guess the blu rays piqued my interest again (although it's always been at the back of my mind)

 

but I'm looking for some advice on the technical side of things. Firest I need to know how to make the best quality DVD rip to use as possible, then I'll probably be using Womble since thats what I've always used. Plus. I've just found the picture-in-picture effect, which helps. But I'm interested in how to make everything the same ratio, so that when I switch from the movie to a BTS clip, I can keep the same black bars top and bottom...

Star Wars coming to Blu Ray (UPDATE: August 30 2011, No! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!)
Time

well I watched AOTC blu today (well, i say watched...i watched the first 10 minutes and the last 30 minutes, fell asleep in the middle....been a long day)...and it looks just awful!

 

the battle of geonosis looks absolutely terrible, everything looks fake. the actors look so far removed from their digital surroundings that it just yanks you right out of the movie. Space Jam looks better!

How did you get it so early?

 

Was dispatched from play.com on weds.

That said, I have only watched TPM so far (working through them in order, with my oh-so-tolerant wife...well, it was her who bought them for my birthday haha) and the picture quality is fantastic. 

So were the rumors of DVNR greatly exaggerated? It would be great if at least the prequels had nice-looking transfers.

 

I haven't got the best eye for this kind of thing, but focused on the convo between yoda and mace at the end of the film, and it really isn't as waxy and smooth as people have been suggesting

Anyway, overall, very happy so far and can't wait o see what the rest looks like

Have you checked the deleted scenes yet?

 

only the ones for TPM, going to work through it movie by movie, and save the best til last. the ones for TPM aren't the best mind

I've avoided posting in this (or any other) thread regarding the changes.  I'm not particularly keen on them, but it's a foregone conclusion these days that lucasfilm (and I'm not even sure it's down to GL these days, I'm sure he just gets a memo with an idea that one of the staff gets, shrugs, and goes "yeah, why not?") will keep tampering with these films.

And like so many others here, I already have numerous choices should I want to watch a preferred cut

That said, I have only watched TPM so far (working through them in order, with my oh-so-tolerant wife...well, it was her who bought them for my birthday haha) and the picture quality is fantastic. sure the cgi sticks out like a sore thumb when it's mostly a live action background (i.e. the entrance to mos espa), but when reversed, like the naboo plains battle, or the space battle, it looks fantastic.

The deleted scenes for TPM ain't up to much either, but there was enough there that I hadn't seen before, and plenty of material should I decide to make "The Menace Revealed". just a shame all the bonus docs have that crappy yellow border

Anyway, overall, very happy so far and can't waitt o see what the rest looks like

LOST: In The Detail. Episode 0.9 now available
Time

Another update:

Here's episode 9 of season 0.

In this ep.  find out there's a power struggle on the island and Desmond decides that the religious life isn't for him. Also, we visit Hurley, Michael, Daniel and more.

Just a note that the Desmond segments in this episode and the next are probably the least coherant parts of my entire edit, due to the context in which these flashbacks actually took place.  I have done my best to make it as unjarring as possible whilst still trying to continue a narrative, but only you can tell me how sucessful I've been.

my whole angle is that although its impossible for fans of the show to approach this without foreknowledge, for a new viewer they losties would be taken at ther word, and therefore really would be survivors of a shipwrecked salvage boat, with the big reveal happening at sometime in season 4 when they actually to travel back in time, since no mention of time travel is ever made in my early episodes

Well, hopefully (thanks to some good advice from theslime at fanedit.org) we're back on track with regards to quality. I have re-encoded my first release (episode 3 of season 0) following a new method, and the resulting file should (hopefully) be of better quality than the original release.

I would really appreciate some feedback on teh quality of this video, as I'm reluctant to start re-encoding the other episodes until I'm sure that the quality is acceptable. So if you already downloaded the original release, please check this one out for comparison, or if you're new to 'LOST - In The Detail' then its a perfect time to join the ride.

I've updated my blog with episode 5 of season zero of 'LOST - In The Detail'.

In this episode the Dharma Initiative capture an unco-operative hostile, young Ben Linus is badly injured, and Juliet and new recruit Kate make a dangerous journey to see the Others.

I understand that there have been several other projects doing very similar things with putting LOST in order, and some of you may be reluctant to commit to another rewatch of the whole show, but I like to feel that mine is different due to the inclusion of deleted scenes, mobisodes and the editing of the time travel aspect of it, and I'd love you guys to give it a shot

The ones you've mentioned are episodes 3 and 4.  1 & 2 will be the jacob and richard-centric episodes.  These will be released once I have the S6 boxset, but I wanted to get the ball rolling and start releasing what I've already done.

 

I've updated the blog with the release of episode 4 - 1974-1977
