Neverar's A New Hope Technicolor Recreation <strong>(V1 Released!)</strong>

I know the feeling. I am finally starting to get to (but am not quite at) the point where I feel like I can watch the film again. Aside from the constant color critiques that pop into your head, even just knowing precisely what shot follows exactly which shot (even small, non-iconic ones) is enough to kind of ruin the fun in my opinion, as my mind would kind of go to the next shot instead of focusing on what was on the screen. And there was a time where I could have been given every individual shot and assembled them in order without reference.

But glancing at it recently, I’m finally at the point where I would not be able to assemble it like that. Even some short scenes I was slightly off about the order of! Road to recovery…

I think all of us who’ve taken a crack at grading the film know this struggle lol

I have to force myself to try and let my mind go blank watching it otherwise I’m just thinking too much about minute details.

You people crack me up. You F* around with copyrighted material then you cry when you see people selling the s*! Just stop, ok you make yourselves look stupid. Maybe if you made the “free” versions easier to get the masses out there would not resort to paying for them. Not to mention it might not be wise to keep brining undo attention to this site as well. I had no problem getting these but to your average non computer person its a pretty difficult task.

Because “f*ing around with copyrighted material” is not a crime. We own the movies, we can do with them what we please, so long as it is for personal use. It is, however, a crime to sell duplicates of that copyrighted material, altered or not. And we “cry” about it because it’s actually a pretty serious issue, as we haven’t had issues with Disney or Lucasfilm primarily because nobody is making money and they don’t see us as a threat. It was just slightly annoying when it was only a couple people here and there selling these on ebay, but the number of people selling these on ebay and other sites is growing astronomically to the point where it will likely soon draw the attention of Lucasfilm Legal and not in a good way, as they will see their actions as a reflection of us on the forum. Now are you done acting like a jerk? Can you provide something productive to the conversation instead of annoyingly complaining about how annoying we are? If not, kindly go away.

STAR WARS: EP V &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>AVAILABLE NOW</strong>
Time

It’s currently downloading. Unfortunately I won’t have time to watch it till tomorrow 😦

On a side note, I kind of love that the barebones movie files come out before the full-on dvd and bluray files. Like a normal movie release, first you see just the movie at the theater, then later you can get all the special features and whatnot on the home video release.

And now there’s a website?!?

https://ldsentertainment.com/

a quick whois will likely show a few details - I imagine the hosts’ terms and conditions may be violated by this person(s) selling stuff like this… (and GoDaddy may not like to feel the wrath of Disney/Lucasfilm getting in contact) - and then handing over files to help ascertain just who is behind it…)

Looks like they registered through DomainsByProxy to keep their information hidden. I wonder why they think they would want to keep themselves hidden… \s

https://whois.icann.org/en/lookup?name=ldsentertainment.com

Should we start a dedicated thread for this sort of thing instead of polluting this one?

A whole section would be more appropriate for this.

ISO file to USB flashdrive?
Time

I do have a bluray player. I was just curious if I could play the file through the player but off of a USB instead of a disc.

Automated color grading and color matching with a Machine Learning Algorithm
Time

So forgive my technical ignorance, DrDre, but how exactly does this work? Do you have to manually attach a shot to a source frame? Or does it take the bulk of reference frames you have and build a universally applicable model to grade any shot with?
And how is the grading accomplished? Does it just take the color palette of your references and match the source to it as closely as possible?

A detailed explanation of what steps the software takes would go a long way for helping a non-technically minded person like myself to comprehend what’s going on here.

Does anyone else hate that the main menu has the extremely loud and obnoxious trailer in the background?

Personally, I would have preferred the main menu being just the films logo in space with a signature song from each film playing subtly in the background.

Then make your own.

The Prequel Radical Redux Ideas Thread

I don’t know. I guess my problem with removing it is just that it’s a cool scene that’s usually just removed for the sake of trying to preserve the reveal that Vader is Anakin, rather than to actually make ROTS better on its own, but it never really works anyways, since Ben’s dialogue in ANH makes it painfully obvious.

I do see what you’re saying about the ambiguous endings though. It is pretty much the only episodic film that ends in a really obvious shoehorned set up for the next film. Maybe one could leave it so it seems as though Anakin dies, then later (after the twins are born or something) cut back to the Emperor’s ship landing on Mustafar and that close up shot of his robotic hand crawling out of the lava. I think that could be a cool way of alluding to the future without being so ham-fisted with the “birth of vader”.

That sounds pretty awesome. I’m really not a fan of edits that remove Darth Vader’s “construction”, as I’ve never seen one that does it in a way where it isn’t still painfully obvious it’s Anakin in the OT, so I’d personally keep that in, but I’d still like to see somebody resurrect that edit idea.

It’s crazy how just in the last year I’ve seen it go from people online saying “just download the despecialized editions” to now seeing “just buy the despecialized editions on eBay”. The vast majority of people seeking this out now think that eBay is where u go to get them.
