ZigZig's THE PHANTOM MENACE Theatrical reconstruction 1080p – V1.0 work in progress
Time

Yes - while I prefer theatrical TPM, Yoda not being consistent in the prequels makes my viewing preference a toss up. I understand that this is a preservation, so you may not feel it’s within your desired goals to release such a version. My suggestion is intended more to provide you the opportunity to simultaneously create such a project while you’re already in the thick of things, as opposed to someone else using your project later on as a source to release such a hybrid version.

Just throwing this out there as a suggestion - a lot of us want to see theatrical Ep 1 in HD, but I think a lot of us also want to see Theatrical Ep 1 WITH CGI Yoda. TPM creates this conundrum of the theatrical version being less canonical with Eps 2 and 3 due to the use of Creepy Puppet Yoda. Maybe two versions would serve well to address this second, less vocally sought after version? I have a lot of faith in your process and the eventual quality of your release.

Phantom Menace '99 - HD Theatrical Version by Chewielewis
Time

Definitely looking forward to this. So many projects of this started here, and finally looks like we’ll see an actual release from someone! We all get caught up in perfectionism, but so many of us here aren’t capable of much of the work that goes into these projects - getting our hands on something tangible is a real pleasure. Please count me in on release candidate checks, and I’m so happy to finally see the Orf make it into a project (one of the few useable things I’ve been able to bring to the site).

Which VHS Trilogy
Time

Thanks 😃

I picked up Ep 1 and 2 on VHS today, I’ll keep an eye out for that set of the OT.

Does anyone here know - does the Japanese VHS of Revenge of the Sith have English audio? Seems to be a hard find, but seems the only way to finish off an NTSC set.

I’m pretty used to Faces, but definitely the odd point is “there’s sand people, I can see one now” with none in sight.

Well, my vcr decided that my RotJ Faces VHS was delicious, so I’m looking to replace it. With VHS tapes so cheap though, I thought it might be worth investing in a different set if it was generally accepted to be “better”.

Any suggestions or personal preferences? I just like the VHS feel to the films. Something about the lower resolution just blends the effects that much better in my opinion.

The Last Jedi: Legendary (SPOILERS)
Time

I wonder if the Leia scene could be sped up considerably, and made to look like it happened near instantly. Could be even while Kylo looks on, or right after he flies away.

Even more radically, though I’m not sure there’s enough footage. You could slow it down, flashing back and forth between Kylo staring at the explosion, and Leia’s face with her eyes closed. End the back and forth with her eyes opening. Then imediately, jump to 1.5x speed of her superman flight, none of her hand twitching or “unfreezing”. Kylo flying away could be right before she opens her eyes, right before she flies back, or right after (my rationalization is that at this point save her or kill her, he’s going to be broken by it.)

Bumping, a rush of responses to the post after mine left it in the dust 😉

1997 Special Edition Audio Mixes, GOUT-Synced
Time

Just throwing this out there, as it may work alright - The TFM Audio Tool offers simple DTS encoding capabilities that may achieve what you’re looking for.

If you pm me the lossless files, I’ll encode them.

Otherwise, I suggest 2 variants of the DTS file.

File Based Playback (Computer): 16 bit, 44.1khz - Closest to original source.
DVD/BD Based Playback: 16bit, 48khz

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>
Time

We’re all crazy here.

We just don’t show it here.

That’s the unspoken rule.

The second unspoken rule is that if you feel like a victim from 2 or more people, you’re probably being taught something. Take the time. Figure out what it is.

(Unspoken rules tend to be difficult for ocd, adhd, etc. because there is nothing finite about whether it’s a rule or not. Just assume it is.)

To be fair, I think that Kevin Smith Pre-marijuana did have a reasonable amount of artistic vision, and preserving the film as intended to be viewed might provide more benefits than expected. Ignoring all other aspects, the film includes so many actors/actresses that deserve to have their film history memorialized for their impact on our culture that the intersect should boost the importance of the film, despite its low position on the priority list of preserving films for each individual actor or actress.

I can’t be the only one slightly confused on how to comment on this thread in a way to actually further discussion. I think a lot of people were hoping to see a little bit more of a community involvement once the RotJ Thread was opened, similar to how the original Revisited was, as well as early stages of Empire. The difference is that the people that can actively help Ady already are if he’d like their help, and I get the feeling Ady finds these days that its easier to bounce ideas off of that team than to open it up to the masses. He also moves at a much faster pace and with far more honed skills. With as advanced in his techniques as he is, what used to seem a “breakthrough” that he would share with us is now an everyday thing not worth mentioning (to him, the rest of us would love to know, but it would make the project drag on forever). I miss feeling as involved, but I completely understand why. I just don’t know how to move the thread forward, and see a lot of other people seemingly in the same bind - Beyond donating, what can those of us not directly involved do to help? Is there a complete errors list that could be checked against?
