well i think its great what you've done with the comparison and also great that you've got yourself on the creadits :-)
don't know if you've seen the ADywan 3D logo at the beginning of the DVD 5 version of star wars but I made that and he added the Star wars various x-wings and Tie's which i thought he did brilliantly


I'm not in the credits, which is why I'm happy the comparisons are. However, your 3D logo is incredible. In reading through the thread, I was impressed that all of a sudden you popped in and said "I made this awesome logo" and it was adopted without any debate. I love it.

I'm actually going to try to add to the thread to get up to 5000.

I was sad that OT.com's sister site, Fanedits.com, only had information about the Xvid version of Revisited. So I tried to make the DVD-5 and DVD-9 info as best as I could.

I forgot the Purist version, but I made one.

I updated my DVD covers to reflect the newly revealed bonus features on the DVD-9.

I think they look great! One little suggestion if I may... I think the specs box might look a little more balanced if "DVD-9 Specifications" and "BONUS FEATURES" were the same font size (and both either all caps or not) and then move the bonus features block up so that it's top-justified with the specifications block. Kinda like this:

I did a little rearranging to the logos and URLs as well, to try and balance that out a bit. It's just a suggestion, of course.

I like it. I honestly never worked very hard on that section, just kind of threw it together. I'll take your suggestions and republish them.

I added another hand/hoof shot

I believe it's spelled "cauterized" if it's not too late to change it. (Actually it's spelled that way even if it is too late to change it!) ;-)

Ady sent me all the original comparisons already written over. I noticed the typo last night, but I can't do anything to fix it. :-\

How many versions of this film are there again? I have the original release (beta). I have a second, tweaked release. And now I hear about the "Purist Version" and a DVD9. Can someone explain to me what the purist version is? I'm a little confused by all the different versions.

Thanks


The xvid is the rough draft, the DVD-5 is the second draft, and the DVD-9 is the final draft. However, the Purist Version is a side project, with some of Adywan's changes undone (no added music, no extended Death Star reveal, no extended TIE reveal, and Obi-Wan's Hut reverted back to its original order). Like a Fan Edit Edit. I've not watched the Purist Version myself, as I am pleased with all the changes made. In fact, these are pretty much the exact changes I wanted to see in the 2004 DVDs.

I added/enhanced two of the Visual Comparison shots. I added another hand/hoof shot and the disappearing, reappearing gun trick in the Death Star Control Room.

I believe that all changes other than that between the xvid, DVD-5, and DVD-9 are just improvements or fixes missed the first time around. Unless I missed something else, which is likely.

doubleofive - Is there any chance of putting a shot of the initial Adywan Ponda Baba 'hoof' arm from the XVID up for me here? Seeing those shots above sure makes me wish we had a glimpse of it in the altered shot AS WELL... Thanks.

p.s. - Your finished 'Visual Comparisons' turned out great!


I really only came up with the concept and first draft, Adywan did all the final screenshotting. I'm not sure if I can screenshot xvid's, but I definitely can't right now because I'm at work. If Ady is too busy to show the xvid changes, I can do that tonight maybe.

Someday I'd like to see all the changes to some scenes from GOUT to 97 to 2004 to Revisited. I don't have GOUT or my 97 VHS's, so I wouldn't be able to do it. Just the major changes, you know?

I'm playing with the pictures of changes, courtesy of Adywan and doubleofive, and setting them to music via PhotoDVD. I originally set it to Enya's best-of album [title escapes me], mainly because it was on my hard drive and I hadn't listened to it in years. Since my wife and friends think it's all sorts of heretical from almost every viewpoint, I may leave the soundtrack as it is.

The question occurs, though, of what TV format is most useful: 16x9 or 4x3. The comparison pictures are almost 4x3, making that natural, and I disabled all animation to keep the pictures as much in view as possible (loss only to overscan).

Would it be preferable to set the format to widescreen and then re-enable the horizontal animation? The picture would slowly drift from side to side for its five seconds' viewing instead of remaining stationary and filling almost all of the 4x3 screen.

(Having only a 4x3 TV, it's an academic question to me but I am curious about others' thoughts.)


A good question, worthy of discussion. I'm torn. Having an 16:9 TV, I tend to lean towards the widescreen, but the pictures would be too small scaled down from the 16:9 image on a 4:3 screen.

http://img182.imageshack.us/img182/9200/swrvisualdvdce2.jpg

Since I learned from some other movie that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, you should go with 4:3, no animation. Or heck, what is preventing you from making both? You must do what you feel is right, of course.

As for Enya... An interesting choice, to say the least.

That's exactly what's happening. It used to send a notification for every reply, but then some people requested that it only send one notification until you view the thread.

I'll add a user setting so that you can choose how you want to be notified.


You truly are the Emperor. Thanks!

I thought that also. I can see where they would be coming from, but I never know what to expect; whether I missed one person asking when the DVD-9 will come out or two pages of arguments about people's arms on floors.

Is anyone else who's subscribed to this thread receiving only intermittent notifications? I get maybe one email for every five or six posts, at best, in the past few weeks. Anyone else?

I know there's a more appropriate forum for this question, I just wanted to see if it's just me before I go to the mods with it.

What a _fantastic_ picture! And I can only imagine what you're planning for it....

(Sorry --- neat to see a picture I've never seen before!)


I was going to say pretty much what Matt here said. The best part is that they had no idea what they were getting into at this point... "Yeah sure, we'll take publicity stills for this cheap movie. No one's ever going to see them anyway!"

You know those threads that goes "was the Empire really evil?", that tries to paint the rebellion as bad guys? Those really bugs me.

Anyway, one of their arguments is that in such a widspread galaxy, it is still only humans that aid the Rebellion. Not until ROTJ do we se any alien members at all (besides Chewbacca).

Obviously, the real reason was effects and coustume limitations, but they try to paint the rebellion as rascists. My point is that, with the Rebellion growing in strenght after the massacre of Alderaan, perhaps we should se an alien or two among the rebels?

Unless this is too hard to do, of course, but it would be nice to undermine those kinds of threads further.


Which is why we should add Jar Jar to the Hoth battles.

But seriously, who's to say that the Rebellion we follow is the entire group and not just the human cell? Who runs a rebellion with only one group of people at one base? The leaders/organizers may be human, and that's why we follow that particular group around. When they meet up in RotJ to stage one final offensive is when we see other species, as if all of the separate cells that have been working together remotely are now together.

Not the best put together argument, but there it is.

The DVD-9 isn't out yet right? This is something different?


"Purist" is something Ady threw together to make the few of us (not me) who were upset about adding music from the other movies in.

It also serves as a distraction until Ady can get the DVD-9 done.

'Purist' version - brilliant: I didnt log in yesterday so I missed that one!
Much better than the crappy 'Doctor Who vs Cylons' gag on SFX!
:)


But the Purist version thing was posted TODAY. His big April Fools Joke was on the Empire thread where he said he wasn't going to do Empire. I think this one is real.

But can we trust anything Ady says anymore?

Or me for that matter?

The "PURIST" version is a really good idea. I don't think I need it, but it's nice for others to have the option.

So, can we see the discarded version of the cover? I'm interested to see your painting skills.

Bobo, you want to explain why Vader is attacking the Wendy's girl? Nice job, BTW.

I wish I could say that I was in on it the whole time, but I seriously was freaking out yesterday morning. I was serious about the heart attack thing. But since I was already talking to Ady about the IV screenshot comparisons, I figured I'd ask.

I did all of the "Noo!" and "notes" myself. I apologize for what I put you through, but I tried to make each post more questionable than the last, ending with the obvious "Ewoks everywhere!"

I said I couldn't take on the project earlier, and I was serious. Adywan is the only person who can take it upon himself to do something of this magnitude. He is also the one who started the joke, so don't blame it on me, I was the one trying to bring you all back down!

We brought a couple lurkers in, so why don't you stick around guys? Apparently we're not all business around here, unless you're talking about arms being cut off. I suppose we'll get to that later...

EDIT: I've been wanting to make an impression on this board, but now I think I'm infamous... I'm a nice guy, honestly!
