was 4k99 ever gonna come out? cause I saw on the forum that a 4k scan of the prequels was happening

That’s on hold indefinitely. Poita (the guy doing the scans) went radio silent about a year ago. He was having a lot going on in his personal life and I imagine he just got burnt out. That, and on the first attempt scanning the film he got ill from the print itself. I really hope the cat is doing well.

Side note: I seem to remember ZigZig mentioning somewhere he got his hands on a 4k scan of a print but upon looking around again, I can’t seem to find where he mentioned it. If anyone could find that for me I’d be very appreciative. Take this with a grain of salt. I might just be having a burnout moment.

You are not mistaken. ZigZig announced it around the 20th anniversary of TPM:

With a v1.1, I’ll be putting it out in 5.1 using the track included with ZigZig’s LD, which I’m assuming it’s the Cinema DTS as I don’t have it otherwise.

No, I believe the cinema DTS is different. I have it. I’ll PM you.

Is it synced to anyone’s own project or anything else for that matter? I can’t seem to get it to work with my project. I’m assuming it’s still synced to a 24fps timecode or something for that matter.

I don’t know much about it, but these threads have some more info

It looks like ORF1 will be showing TPM again this coming Monday. The listed times seem to indicate that it could be the theatrical version. Hopefully someone can record.

It would be great to get this. And preferably without the DNR or edge enhancement that the Blu-ray and HDTV releases suffer from.

Info Wanted: Best copy for Prequel Trilogy?
Time

With Schorman’s v2 of TPM, it’d be great to have a theatrical edit.
What would be the trickiest part? The cuts, transitions, and fades? The DTS track could be used for the audio. The LD could be used as guide for how to piece together the video.

Aside from subtitle changes, are there any other differences than these?:

  • Remove pod race introduction shots
  • Remove pod race second lap shots
  • Add shot of Watto screaming “SEBULBA!”
  • Remove Coruscant air taxi sequence
  • Remove CGI bridge in shot of Naboo palace

Quick question: would you be willing to share full-bitrate encodes of just the burned-in subtitle parts for TPM and AOTC for anyone who might want them? Since they have the fade ins/outs and all that, which you can’t really do for softsubs IIRC.

Yeah, I could make that happen. 😃

I’d also like to get my hands on these, if possible. Thanks

The Last Jedi - Isolated Score (Released)
Time

Last night I sat down to watch a little of this and ended up watching the whole movie. I’ve never seen a movie like this, with the dialog and sound effects stripped out. I found it fascinating, and hard to describe why. The lack of dialog makes everything more simple and kinda boils down the characters to what they look like and what the music is telling you to feel about them.

I’d love to have this isolated soundtrack for TFA, Rogue One, Solo, and the prequels.

I don’t understand why anyone would want to listen to the entire soundtrack considering every worthwhile cue is on the official release. Mediocre score for a terrible movie.

Lucas talked about how he wanted his movies to be coherent if you just have the visuals and the music. It’s at least an interesting experiment.

Also… Some people like the score and like the movie. Some people really like the score and the movie!
It would be great if we could avoid litigating movies in the movie preservation subforum.

The GOUT Sync Thread
Time

hairy_hen said:

In the course of syncing audio for 4K83, schorman and I found that the audio sync issue is more extensive than previously imagined. While the NTSC GOUT is missing two frames in the middle of reel 3, its audio actually turns out to be missing four frames worth of material at this exact spot. Given that the GOUT audio and the print audio run at the same speed nearly all of the time, this means that the sync on the GOUT audio has been incorrect all along. It is not correctly matched to the picture, and was apparently kludged together in a way that just barely works.

After coming to this realization, have you fixed your GOUT-synced 5.1 tracks? If you have, I’d be very grateful if you could share them.

I’m remuxing the Despecialized Editions right now to add your tracks that were included with 4K77, update the subs to Project Threepio 10.1, and make the DTS-HD MA 2.0 track the default instead of 5.1. I’d really like to replace the tracks that are known to be a bit out of sync with fixed versions. Thanks!

Harmy I’m just curious, what video do you send people who ask “What’s wrong with the DVDs/BluRays?”
I know there are plenty of videos out there, but I’m looking for the perfect video that deconstructs the abomination that is the SW special editions and figured you’d be a great person to ask first. Thanks

I’ve used this one to give people the gist of it… doesn’t go into all the details of every special edition added scene, but gives a good idea of how George has withheld the theatrical version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXifjbxZDAM

EDIT: Hellogreedo’s channel on youtube has several videos that go more in-depth into some of the changes. Here’s a playlist of a bunch of them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xezn-0xottw&list=PLaqGKHBFQiztN7uoijEG9ZUw3PYrQ7Y0i

Thanks, didn’t know Harmy made a video like this. The HelloGreedo videos are nice too
