The theatrical colors of the Star Wars trilogy

I would like to add, that I believe it’s important to preserve the original theatrical print colors (or one of them) without interpretation, or subjective taste. (emphasis added)

That’s a good point, but once we have one such preservation, giving the film authentic but consistent color in future projects is a worthy goal. Recreating color inconsistencies is a waste of valuable time if they vary from print to print anyway.

The GOUT Sync Thread
Time

Will, I’ve only skim-read your guide, but my initial impression is that it looks good. Precise information about the frame-differences of the PAL GOUT is contained in the scripts at the start of the thread. If I were you, I’d update your guide accordingly; otherwise, you might mislead people.

GOUT Technicolor regrade (single pass)

I’m doing this mostly to create a good color reference.

Got it! I figured that some people will probably want to watch it through as well though, so it wouldn’t hurt to clean up the GOUT a bit in the process.

Even with a LUT applied, the GOUT presumably needs to be filtered before people find it watchable (unless they want just to look at the colors). Has there been any advance on g-force’s latest script since it was posted? It’s been a while.

I agree, but what else can it be? If the white data can be recovered it has to have a value 255 or less, because the blu-rays are 8-bit RGB color.

That’s why I said outside of the TV range. Occasionally, there is information just outside of it that one can make a subtle adjustment to recover i.e. a smaller change in levels than that which takes place in the standard TV<->PC conversion.
