JEDIT: nevermind, not worth it

Sounds like a whole lot of effort for the same thing. Shooting on film i understand. Doing the editing and post work on film seems unnecessarily complicated, difficult, and expensive for a final result that would be nearly indistinguishable (again not talking about doing the initial shooting on film). Especially considering almost any place that would show your film would just show it digitally anyway. And you could still make prints of it anyway.
But then again I’m not speaking from a film enthusiasts perspective.
Pretty much what Dek said. If you do it that way, you’re limited to the resolution of your digital intermediate, and it would be much more difficult to go back and find all the negative to rescan if it wasn’t already conformed to the locked picture edit if you wanted to get it in higher resolution.
This is why a lot of 4K UHD releases are upscaled 2K - because their digital intermediate was 2K and it’s too expensive to find all the right takes from the negative and rescan them at 4K. That, and most CGI is done at 2K even today, so effects-heavy movies will probably always be upscaled from 2K.

a digital readout of all shots/frames in the final cut is created (I forget what this is s called)
That would be an EDL, or Edit Decision List.
SEE, MOM? MY DEGREE WASN’T A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!
I think he’s saying he’d scan the film so he can edit it digitally, but then conform the camera negative to the digital edit. So basically how films were edited after NLE software became commonplace but before digital intermediates were a thing. Or, in other words, how Christopher Nolan works.
This was actually taught in some of my editing and finishing classes in college. After teaching us how to edit 16mm film using a razor blade and tape. (The year after I graduated they switched to 100% digital…)

Paja’s Random Questions Thread
I’d make Dune and film it entirely in anamorphic 65mm (like Ben-Hur or The Hateful Eight), so it’d be a 2.76:1 AR.
But Denis Villeneuve’s Dune (assuming it doesn’t fall apart before it gets made) might make this moot if it’s as good as Prisoners, Arrival, or Blade Runner 2049.
Sure! If you have a 100 inch screen in your house. 😛
I’m surprised to read a dismissive comment about 4K on this site. I thought OT forum was very much built around wanting the very best ‘technical’ presentation of Star Wars, from sound, to accurate colour representation, to resolution - aren’t these technical aspects fundamental to Originaltrilogy.com? Or do forum members actually not care that much?
I care, but 4K for home use is primarily a scheme to get me to buy a new 4K tv, a new 4K player, a new 4K ready receiver, etc. Half of what’s on the format is simply upscaled from 2K. Pixar doesn’t even render their films at 4K.
And don’t even get me started on 30 year old movies with questionable Atmos remixes and no original mix option in sight. I’m not about to drill holes in the ceiling of a 40 year old house to put Atmos speakers above me, either.
The displays I’ve seen in stores look very nice, but they just don’t look like film to me. I imagine a lot of crap in the tv has to be switched off to get a film like image though.
When a restored non buggered OOT is on 4k, wake me. 2001 and The Shining might get me to budge as well. I am getting a bit long in the tooth to consider rebuying all my favorite movies again on a for a third time.
Thankfully, I’ll probably be too old to care when 8K comes along. 😉
I was glad to see your comments of 4K not looking like film. I agree. Many films or TV programs I’ve seen in 4K have the soap opera look to it…kinds like 60 fps with LOTR did for me.
That’s the TV with all its motion interpolation and other image processing turned on, not the 4K source material. Turn all that shit off and turn your sharpness down to zero and it’ll look like film, as long as it’s a good transfer/master. But the soap opera effect is 100% the TV’s motion interpolation.

I have no issues with qbittorrent on MySpleen, but again, I’ve never uploaded a torrent there, just downloaded and seeded.
I haven’t seen the reboot, so I don’t know why I’m making this comment.
+1 for qbittorrent.
Hey, I never said it was better than the first one, or even that it was good. But I do like it.
The HDR alone is worth it if you have a capable display, even if it’s not large enough to truly notice the added resolution.
You tend to get very combative when you disagree, which brings out the type of responses you seem to take umbrage with.
well dnr is annoying when they do it, too many weirdos hate grain on 50 year old films, as for color timing, I think alot of them are imaginary. A lot of the “colour timing” projects I’ve seen are so subtle I personally can’t tell the difference. And wouldn’t old film reals of varied from batch to batch a bit to begin with?
Pretty much this, though there are some films that certainly have revisionist color timing (Aliens, the Final Cut of Blade Runner, the BR Extended Cut of Fellowship of the Ring, and of course, the Blu-Ray SW trilogy, among others), but what I really don’t get is regrading modern films that are mastered from a DI.
All the deleted scenes have leaked online at this point, by the way. The Star Wars Leaks subreddit has a Dailymotion link to the whole set in HD.
I even like Ghostbusters II. I’m that guy.
Hey, there’s two of us!
Oh, I’d be interested, but more in a historical curiosity sort of way. It is, after all, the worst Star Wars movie.
And the IMAX cut recreation is based on sketchy notes about what was cut that may or may not be accurate - an actual copy of the IMAX cut itself (either on 70mm film or as a cam copy or something) would be awesome to have.
I mean, I donated for the TPM scan, but I don’t know if I’d be willing to cough up even half as much for AOTC. Maybe if it was the IMAX cut…
Both of those work really well. That take on Like dropping the saber should be mandatory for every TLJ edit IMO.
I watched a bit of it last night before bed, and I actually thought Yoda looked pretty good and very ESB puppet-like most of the time.
But there are definitely moments when he looked bad, and the mouth is awkward most of the time.
That would be a worthwhile resource, but I doubt it would garner enough interest/donations for Poita or someone else to get it scanned, let alone buy it…
