Hi-res images of the GOUT DVD disc art?
Time

I just burned 4K77 and 4K83 to blu ray and wanted to add the GOUT artwork to it but I’m having trouble finding the correct images on google. ROTJ was easy to find but I cannot find the art used on the discs for ANH and ESB.

Jedit: disregard this post I just ended up scanning the discs and using photoshop to remove the logos

Let me know which reel that would be on (Reels are approx 20 minutes long) as I am not familiar with the movie itself at all.

Here’s the timecodes for the changes that would be needed to be scanned if you chose to do so:

01:19:14 frame 6 - shot of Qui-Gon’s “much more complicated” line and wipe transition to a shot of Palpatine’s quarters
01:25:40 frame 17 - Orn Free Ta’s human aides
01:33:26 frame 11 - hyperspace jump and the wipe to the Theed palace

It all could be on reel 4 and 5 or just 5. Hope this helped and hope that you’re feeling better!

I really don’t think it’s worth worrying about doing that footage, not simply for a reconstruction of the theatrical version, better that we get another print and start fresh.

I actually think they would be valuable because the footage from the 35mm can be combined with the existing SD footage to make it blend in way better with the HD footage in a reconstruction.

Jedit: Maybe ZigZig could help clarify if it’ll be useful or not since he’d be the one doing the merging

That is a shame. You wouldnt think film restoration would be so hazardous to ones health.

No chance you got anything with subtitles?

I had the same thoughts as Ash. However according to Bobson Dugnutt’s preservation page the font used for the theatrical subs are “ITC Franklin Gothic Demi Bold, 69 point with -30 tracking”

I’d give that a shot as this came from starwars.com when they were in production for TPM.

I didn’t realize it would take that long for the scans. I wonder if maybe we could fund for him to just scan the changed portions of the film and the scenes with subtitles.

As for adding grain I say go for it! I’ve seen someone just add grain to the Blu Ray and it brought out a better picture and more detail on top of just looking like a proper film!
