Had a problem with the scanner losing focus, here are the same two frames in 4K full aperture for anyone that wants a look.

Thanks!

The focus problem has been fixed before this frames, right? Because I can’t see any focus problem on these two. Even the dolby digital data looked well defined/usable…

That’s really awful Poita. Stay strong, stay with your family until you go better.
May the force be with you.

How do I get these?

You can’t. They were never meant to be shared directly. The historical conservation was the main goal.
Btw, next time read the ongoing discussion to avoid looking like an asshole.

I’m not sure if any current monitor can benefit from it.
I haven’t looked at the 21:9 monitors, but even if there was one that could potentially take advantage, what would you play it back with?

The only situation I think it could work would be a 4K projector with a scope lens attached.

Hi Poita, all fine?

Yeah, hope he’s fine too. He did not connect since july.
I hope he is Just taking a break with SW stuff.

French title released: Les derniers Jedi. Yep, plural, so several Jedi are expected.

I know of at least one language where the title was translated in singular. So this does not seem to be very reliable.

A mistake can be made in one way, but not the other way.
In french, you just can’t translate “The Last Jedi” in plural by mistake.

That's official : "The Last Jedi" IS PLURAL
Time

Hi,

The French Star Wars facebook page has just posted the official French title : “Les derniers Jedi”, and it’s plural. (In french, the articles in plural and singular are disctincts [“Le”, “Les”]).
So, there is several Jedi, and it is not just Luke 😃

That certainly sucks, but thank god the new mobo was able to reuse the existing raid arrays. i have heard anecdotal horror stories about firmware mismatches causing issues with this. not a fun situation, but it could have been worse i guess.

how is your house cleanup going?

The roof has been sealed up, and the place is nearly back to normal.

That is good! I hope everything says ‘normal’ for quite some time. 😃

It will not be normal, it will be great 😉

Power is back on, PC won’t boot. No Internet here yet either. Going to open the PC up tonight to see what the trouble is. We rent, so the house damage isn’t our concern at least, and the house has been secured so all is good on that front, but we sustained some water damage inside. It looks like we had a power surge or brownout issue though as the fridge is dead and the PC etc seems to have problems. Will update as I work though it.

Poita, I seriously think you should create and participate to a show called “Extreme restoring”, where people try to restore old movies but are constantly bothered by tornados, disk crashes, etc. With your tenacity, you would certainly win the contest! Hope this made you smile a bit 😃

Take care.

I can post another section with the complete soundtrack area etc. if anyone is interested.

Of course that would be very nice to see (for those are not used to manipulate 35mm reels), unless this take you too much time to do.

poita said:

This is what a full frame scan looks like.

Very nice, thank you 😃

poita said it was pre-scans to just look for damage/missing frames etc., so let’s hope the crop is not on the actual reel.

Was this a glitch in the scanning device?

He has posted the full frame scans before, including the sprockets, etc. Presumably it’s just how the preview is rendered. Though it would be interesting (unfortunate) if that’s the full image.

Really? Is it still available somewhere? Would love to see those.

No but seriously, I think these kind of cleanups should be left to those semi professionals (Harmy and others) who know what they’re doing. Otherwise the end result could be junk.

That’s exactly what people told about Wikipedia at the begining… 😉

Like it has been said ealier, it appears that the collaborative process will be something like “spot the dust and scratch” on the frame. Without installing any software, and without technical knowledge.
And more generally, we are thinking to make it the best way, and to ensure the highest quality. Of course.

towne32 said:

The semi professionals are in charge of this endeavor. I don’t think they’ll put anyone in a role that runs the risk of junk output.

Exactly

Hi!

I’m very glad that a lot of people are interested in this project 😃

As said AntcuFaalb, we are thinking about a way to make everone contribute to the restoration, without needing to install any software, and without any technical knowledge.

So Dek Rollins, everybody will be useful !

Stay tune.

Lol at “dismembering”.

Lol, sorry for this one.

Of course, if you’d prefer to buy PF Clean and volunteer to clean-up frames I’m sure the they’d let you sign up for dirt and scratch removal.

Project files from the free ‘personal learning edition’ are compatible with the full version. So if you’re not the one who is going to be doing the heavy rendering anyway, that’s an option.

That’s interesting.
It would be a pleasure for me to help in that way (if what I propose in the first place is not possible)

I will download the Learning Edition and give it a try.

Ok, so they are using a proper and more advanced tool than photoshop to do the cleanup, hmm that make perfect sense.

An open-source PFClean would be a very interesting project, but extremly more complex that I was thinking about.
