Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.5 MKV IS OUT NOW

Tal vez no seais tan “meticulosos” pero cada vez que George Lucas y Fox sacan una edición nueva de la trilogía original de “La guerra de las galaxias” se parece menos a la versión que se pudo ver en los cines allá por la década de los setenta y ochenta con tanto retoque digital, de color y demás tonterías que lo único que hacen es cabrear al espectador. Lo peor de todo es que no parece que tengamos alguna vez esa versión libre que se pudo disfrutar en las salas de cine.

O al menos oficialmente ya que me entero vía Alex Baldovi que un grupo de fans de la saga están haciendo un impresionante trabajo intentando restaurar el episodio IV partiendo de copias del Blu-Ray, dvd, HD-TV, láser disc, VHS, 35mm e incluso de 16 milímetros con el único objetivo de conseguir una versión en alta definición pero sin ningún añadido. Ha sido tal el éxito que ya están trabajando en restaurar las versiones de “El imperio contraataca” y “El retorno del Jedi”.



Todos sabemos que cuando George Lucas reeditó Star Wars decidió cambiarle muchas cosas, desde su punto de vista para bien. Pero he aquí lo que sucede con un clásico, los fans más fanáticos tienen problemitas con las tecnologías modernas, les cuesta mucho ver la obra que conocieron desde su infancia con cambios.

Pero algunos de estos cambios no sólo se dieron en las escenas editadas, hasta en el sonido, los colores, escenas cortadas o modificadas. Pero Lucas tuvo una idea más extraña todavía: no reeditarlas en Blu Ray. Es decir, no existe una versión original en alta definición, si uno quiere eso lo que encontrará es la reedición con escenas digitalizadas pero no el original de film tradicional.

De esta forma nace un esfuerzo comunitario en encontrar y digitalizar todo lo posible creando una copia lo más fiel posible a aquella edición de 1977 pero con calidad HD ¿Cómo hacerlo? pues bien, debían digitalizar los cuadros de las películas originales en las escenas que Lucas cambió para la reedición de 1997 (20 aniversario) y luego digitalizaron para DVD y BluRay en 2004.

A continuación más detalles de esta extraña versión para coleccionistas...

http://themusingsofafanboy.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/a_long_time_ago.png?w=1200

Hay varias fuentes para crear una "versión como la original" en alta definición, la primera es inevitablemente el BluRay, en este caso utilizaron la edición de 2011 como base a la que se le aplicó una corrección de color para que se viese como las técnicas de Technicolor de 1977.

Se sumaron escenas del DVD bonus de 2006 que tiene escenas del Laser Disc de 1993 a las que se les aplicó ciertas técnicas de upscaling. Además el DVD ripeado de 2004, una captura de DTV de 1997 y aquí es donde empieza una parte más interesante: Film.

Se escanearon films de 35mm y 70mm, un negativo de 35mm de la escena de Mos Eisley y una transferencia de 16mm de 1977 (conocida como "Puggo Grande").

Pero no termina todo en las imagenes, esta edición incluye veintiún tracks de audio, la lista es genial:

TRACK 1) 5.1 DTS-HD-MA [English] (1977 70mm six track mix)
TRACK 2) 2.0 DTS-HD-MA [English] (1977 35mm stereo mix)
TRACK 3) 1.0 DTS-HD-MA [English] (1977 35mm mono mix)
TRACK 4) 2.0 Dolby Digital [English] (1985 Laserdisc mix)
TRACK 5) 2.0 Dolby Digital [English] (1993 Laserdisc mix)
TRACK 6) 2.0 Dolby Digital [German] (1978 dub reconstruction)
TRACK 7) 2.0 Dolby Digital [French] (1977 dub)
TRACK 8) 2.0 Dolby Digital [Spanish] (1977 Castilian
dub) TRACK 9) 1.0 Dolby Digital [Spanish] (1980 Latino dub)
TRACK 10) 1.0 Dolby Digital [Portuguese] (1980s Brazilian dub)
TRACK 11) 2.0 Dolby Digital [Japanese] (1978 Dub)
TRACK 12) 2.0 Dolby Digital [Italian] (1977 dub)
TRACK 13) 2.0 Dolby Digital [Polish] (1995 Voiceover)
TRACK 14) 2.0 Dolby Digital [Czech] (1992 dub)
TRACK 15) 2.0 Dolby Digital [Hungarian] (1984 dub)
TRACK 16) 2.0 Dolby Digital [English] (1993 LD Audio Commentary - silence filled with 1993 LD 2.0)
TRACK 17) 2.0 Dolby Digital [English] (2004 DVD Audio Commentary - recut to fit this release)
TRACK 18) 2.0 Dolby Digital [English] (2004 starwars.com Audio Commentary - recut to fit this release)
TRACK 19) 2.0 Dolby Digital [English] (2011 BD Archival Interviews Audio Commentary - recut to fit this release)
TRACK 20) 2.0 Dolby Digital [Isolated Score] (Compiled by hairy_hen)
TRACK 21) 2.0 Dolby Digital [English] (Commentary For Visually Impaired)

Unos 33 subtítulos diferentes, y se puede conseguir en distintos formatos en algunos sitios de BitTorrent y descargas. Cabe aclarar que si bien todo el contenido de Star Wars está protegido por el copyright esta versión no busca piratear sino conservar.

Hay una fina línea que separa una cosa de la otra pero básicamente es un trabajo de arqueología moderna, tratando de preservar la edición original. De hecho, Lucas Films tuvo muchos problemas a la hora de reeditar en 1997 la película por sus vigésimo aniversario porque el tipo de film donde se había guardado se degradaba muy rápido.

La versión actual es la Harmy 2.5, en un archivo MKV de 17.8GB con video a 1280x720p H264 23.976 fps, luego pueden encontrar muchas versiones alternativas con menor cantidad de pistas de audio para que puedan entrar en un DVD o sean más fáciles de compartir.

También está el proyecto por reconstruir El Imperio Contraataca aunque es más moderna carece de tantas fuentes como el primer film, pero es genial que se siga trabajando en este tipo de cosas.

También, con respecto al copyright, está más que claro que la mayoría que se descargaría un archivo como este es... un fan de toda la vida que seguro ya tiene los discos de TODAS las versiones posibles :D creo que la dueña actual, Disney, debería aprovechar para darle una mano a estos proyectos y reconstruir versiones de colección con el film original que se utilizaba en el cine, sería genial.

This is a reconstruction of the 1977 theatrical version of STAR WARS. The original shots were painstakingly restored using various sources (listed below) and the film received an extensive shot by shot colour correction based on a fade free 1977 I.B. Technicolor Print.
The remastered (v2.0) version represents a significant improvement in picture quality over the earlier version.

Version v2.1 further improves upon the previous version mainly by refining the color correction but also by replacing many of the despecialized shots with higher quality ones.

Version v2.5 offers few more little tweaks to the picture and contains an unprecedented number of audio options, including lossless DTS-HD tracks for the original mixes, an isolated score, four different commentary tracks and dubbing tracks in ten different languages and dialects.

!!!Important!!!


The 640Kbps 5.1 track has some bad compression issues.
The 77 Stereo and mono may have been affected as well.

The German and Spanish soundtracks are unfortunately out of sync, here are links to download corrected AC3 files:

Replacement tracks are available from tehparadox and usenet.

***
Here's how to replace asynchronous audio tracks or to add further audio tracks.


First of all, download the fixed audio tracks.


Get MKVToolnix from http://www.heise.de/download/mkvtoolnix.html and install it.
 Open it and add the MKV-file and the fixed audio tracks.


All tracks including the fixed audio tracks are now listed in the box below. 
Uncheck the asynchronous audio tracks and check the fixed audio tracks. 
Choose a new order by using the up and down buttons.

Left click on a fixed audio track, choose "General track options", name the track 
(f. e. the German track should be called "2.0 @ 384Kbps"), determine it's language
 and deactivate "Default track flag".


If you want to add further audio tracks that aren't synchronized to the video 
track yet, you may have to choose "Format specific options" as well and set a 
positive or negative delay. It's not advised to stretch the audio track during the 
muxing because this stretching isn't permanent, has to be generated each time 
while the movie is playing and will stress your system resources.


Click on "Start muxing".

This re-encoding is not done by Harmy himself. This was done after talking to him and with his knowledge.Harmy’s original v2.5 release is 18 GB in size. So this is just a re-encode of that file to make a moremanageable size.  Harmy’s original nfo for that file comes below. Atlantis.
