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.

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.

As I thought, the reddit thread is full of scumbags.

You shouldn’t link the thread directly here, though. AFAIK, that constitutes brigading and can result in deletions/bans.

Facebook comments arent much better. Lots of “get over it”.

Porkins gives a fine performance. The only thing that makes him “funny” is his weight. Which, I mean, who cares? It’d be cool to add some female pilots but I don’t see why you’d need to get rid of Porkins. Sure, he’s the only pilot without a chin strap. Sure he can barely fit in the cockpit. But whatever. The rebellion will take whoever they can get.

I laugh at people buying 4K TVs… your eyes are almost certainly not good enough to tell the difference in the vast majority of viewing scenarios. Total waste of money

You know there’s more to it than just resolution, right? The increased dynamic range is enough of a selling point for me. And those who care are going to definitely make sure the viewing conditions are ideal for the 4k format.

You know though, you could take the silence as good news. They accepted and told him to keep it secret… all I’m saying is you can’t read the silence either way.

Or negotiations are still being worked on. I feel like he’d tell us at least on his forum if there was bad news, but obviously couldn’t do so if there was good news.
