GOUT Technicolor regrade (single pass)
Time

DrDre said:
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.

Time

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.

Neverar's 1080p Star Wars Color Correction

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.

Here you can clearly see, that while the foreground is very green, the background and R2-D2 are fairly neutral, which makes it seem as though the scene was lit with a green light.

That’s an intriguing notion. It would explain a great deal.

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Despecialized Edition HD (AVCHD DVD9 &amp; NTSC DVD5 available!!! SEE FIRST POST!!!)

above comment is about normal PAL to NTSC conversions, but i may be out of my element here…

You are. “Normal” PAL conversions are simple speed-ups, so converting PAL back to NTSC simply involves a slow-down. It’s very easy to sync the PAL GOUT to the NTSC GOUT.

Could someone point me in the direction of details on how to make the ROJ PAL GOUT sync into NTSC GOUT sync?

EDIT: This request is definitely off topic. It would be a good idea to continue discussion in my GOUT sync thread.

Superman I-III extended TV cuts: Where have the preservations gone?
Time

Booshman said:
Ah, so dropping in the footage as is, but within the black border of the original film. So the sides drop out during the added footage?

Yes. The added footage accounts for only a small portion of the runtime, so this way you can watch the whole film in widescreen, obviate the laborious process of panning and scanning, and avoid heavy cropping. While I understand that some might not like this approach, it definitely has its merits.

You’re talking about pan/scan and tilt/scan. Letterboxing is adding borders on the top and bottom; pillarboxing is adding borders on the sides.

Of course that’s what letterboxing and pillarboxing are. The footage that we have in 4:3 has already been panned and scanned. I am indeed talking about letterboxing and pillarboxing it to integrate it with widescreen footage (without cropping either). Just look at the picture above!

I give no quarter to people who purposely make fun of others with disabilities, including unseen ones, just to get a laugh.

Is that really what darth_ender was doing? I thought he was just playing games with words for amusement, and I thought that it was to be confined to a single thread, which is the only reason I played along for a few posts. Word-play amuses me (to an extent, at least).
