Brief Synopsis:
This is my 1080p high definition rebuild of Dune The Alternative Edition Redux, my 2012 fanedit (in 480 standard definition) of David Lynch's 1984 science fiction film.

Intention:
The footage is drawn from 94% 1080p sources, and also features improved special effects, improved colour correction and a small number of minor additional editing changes. Enjoy this fanedit in glorious new detail - such visually rich and imaginative cinema as Lynch’s Dune deserves no less.

Special Thanks:

For assistance on the Special 1080p Edition, in particular I would like to thank:

Woohoo! Can't wait to get it! This is the finest peplum ever made, and is sumptuous.

A tip: I used the Downsub site to process the subtitles into SRT, as the other options for getting subtitles out of YT are horrendous.

Thank you so much for this.
My only problem is that it's still only in 2.0 sound, when a 5.1 mix would be great and definitely possible.
The Koch Media Blu-ray has 5.1 audio for both the Theatrical and Extended Cuts.
If you cannot encode in DTS-HD MA 5.1 or Dolby TrueHD 5.1, you can get someone else to do it, with your 2.0 mix as a sort of guide on how to do the updated Spicediver 5.1 mix.

There is now a revised second edition of the SpiceDiver edit, one that combines ALL known footage from the two major versions, theatrical and extended Smithee cuts, plus the new transitional material . It‘s not in 1080p, but still an excellent viewing experience just the same.

PM me for more info.

I am not SpiceDiver, but apparently an anonymous editor decided to create a new hybrid edit using ALL known footage from the film, while maintaining the transitional edits and links SpiceDiver made for its previous edit, but downplaying the edits made for the Allen Smithee version.

However, that does not take away anything from what SpiceDiver did with its edit…it stands on its own merits and does its best to do some sort of justice to what David Lynch had in mind when he shot it.

There have also been other fan edits of DUNE made, and I personally have seen one of them (created by someone named Michael Warren) on archive.org—though haphazardly edited, it may have laid the groundwork for SpiceDiver’s edit.
