This site is devoted to Puggo's Stjärnornas Krig 16mm telecine.
What is the "Stjärnornas Krig"?
It is my telecine transfer and restoration of an old 16mm print of Star Wars
with Swedish subtitles. The film was borrowed from a source who wishes to
remain anonymous, and who for now will go by the name Jaxxon.
Actually, Jaxxon provided me with two prints, both of which have the
original crawl. One of the prints has Swedish subtitles and the mono mix.
This project is the telecine and DVD mastering of that print.
For the video capture, I used a 16mm Workprinter manufactured
by Roger Evans of Moviestuff.
The Workpriter was further modified to capture more of the frame, to
more effectively capture the scope print. It also needed additional
adjustment of the positioning of the lens to avoid chopping the corners.
For the optical audio tracks, I used an EIKI Slimline 16mm projector.
I used CoolEdit to clean the audio, and Vegas Video to sync the tracks.
For additional post-processing, I used the following:
Virtualdub - CMYK filter (RocketJet4 Tools) for color correction,
Vegas Video - various masking and corrections to reduce edge effects,
PhotoStudio - to build a curved border
Vegas Video - chroma keying the border, resize, and very light sharpening,
TMPGEnc for encoding, and
DVD Lab for authoring.
Note - this project is archival only, and I don't distribute my projects.
