I still haven’t seen AOTC, I really should try to watch it.

I would watch a fanedit. If you’ve truly never seen the theatrical you might be able to actually enjoy it, but you are pretty much guaranteed to not like the theatrical.

I was considering the exact same thing when I went for my very first viewing of The Phantom Menace, but in the end I did go with the official Blu-Ray version (not DVD because puppet Yoda in TPM sucked). This allowed me to get my opinion on the real thing before heading to a fanedit.

Thank you for the feedback guys. While I started fixing the framerate and data rate, it would be nice to get feedback on the actual color correction as well. I’m going to continue with this project, because I think everyone deserves a Star Wars film with realistic colors.

I have made a comparison of the DVD version with what I made. In some occasions I saw that the DVD version had more blue, so not the most realistic colors.
My intention of this color correction was to create the most realistic colors for each scene. I made multiple LUT files and looked scene-by-scene what I thought was the most realistic.
If it’s necessary, I can reprocess the video’s with 23.976 frames/second.

Hello guys,

I found this article about changes in re-releases of the prequels: http://www.dvdactive.com/editorial/articles/star-wars-the-changes-part-four.html

It stated that the Blu-Ray version of AOTC has some weird color grading. I decide to use DrDre’s tool from http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Color-matching-and-prediction-color-correction-tool-v13-released/id/18128 to fix it.

The following changes have been made to the colors:

  • The Jedi meeting in Palpatine’s office has been made more blue.
  • An orange hue has been added to the meeting with Obi-Wan, Anakin & Padmé to add to the effect of the sunset.
  • A pink glow present in the entire chase sequence has been removed.
  • I added a slight yellow touch to the Jedi Council meeting for better skin tones, especially for Yoda & Windu.
  • The same yellow touch has been applied to Palpatine’s conversation with Anakin.
  • A purple hue in the conversation between Obi-Wan & Windu in the hallway of the Jedi temple has been removed.
  • The scene of Padmé packing her things in her apartment has been made a bit more green.
  • The Archives have been made more blue to be consistent with how we see them in Revenge of the Sith.
  • Skin tones have been improved in the refugee spaceship with Anakin & Padmé.
  • Added a bit of green to the younglings scene without altering the lightsabers.
  • Removed pink from the arrival of Naboo scene. The result is much more orange, which suits the bright sun of Naboo.
  • The colors in the conversation between Padmé and the Queen have been slightly tweaked.
  • All scenes on Kamino, Naboo & Tatooine have been made more orange, as well as the Geonosis scenes up until the arena battle.
  • Orange has been removed from all scenes starting with the arena battle.
  • The same orange hue has been added to the Naboo wedding.

What IF STAR WAR EDITS
Time

NEW WHAT IF: What if Luke decided to not leave his father on the Death Star II and died in the explosion?

Just finished re-arranging the shots, later I’ll add some sad music and create fitting audio for the whole thing.

Maybe I’ll have to cut down some dialogue to make the thing more fitting, or further arrange the shots. Everything can still easily be edited. What do you think?
