I already know how those posts turn out.

only if you have one of those fancy time machines with extra memory retention. otherwise you travel back in time, but don’t remember anything from the future. basically, time travel is real, we all already traveled back in time, that is why we are the only sentient beings around. but we all made a huge mistake and traveled economy - so no memory retention. we don’t even know that we are from the future.

OMG! **Spoiler alert: Most homeless people on the street are time travelers from the future. And the sad irony is, all of them went back and prevented major catastrophes before their memory faded.

I can remember back when you first started what a struggle this shot was. Thanks for sharing this journey with us Dr. Dre!

DrDre said:

I’m seriously considering finishing this regrade, once project-X is done. Would there be an interest in yet another regrade?

On another note, the various technicolor print scans, and the frames themselves show slight, but consistent color imbalances between shots. Should these be kept for a regrade? What are your opinions on the subject?

My vote: FIX THEM, PLEASE. Especially for the blu ray release which is after all “modern special edition with extra graphix”. 😃 (I can handle the Episode 4 additions… at least it doesn’t have Vader going “NOOOOOO… NOOO!” D&SF(SD&(&(!)

Star Wars 1977 Technicolor IB print color references (matched to print)

The red pannels in the Death Star control room seem to be less orange than what we often see in other technicolor corrections.

Indeed, and considering the green shift in the print it’s even less orange when corrected.

It’s partially a saturation difference. Pulling those dark greens a bit and bumping the sat:
(I think this is a bit too hot, but just showing how the red panels change a lot)

Automated color grading and color matching with a Machine Learning Algorithm

Dr. Dre… would you mind showing me how the blu ray would regrade with his style with this shot? This whole scene kills me trying to figure out saturation, gamma, everything about it… I would love to see how NeverarBot pulls it off. Don’t use this image BTW, this is just a reference to get the frame, I don’t have the blu ray handy… I think this is from my horrible attempt at adjusting Towne32’s 2.7.

‘My work here is done’ now has a new meaning 😉

An excellent start in any case. It will be interesting to see how it behaves with more material, especially since it will have to interpret skin tones seen under a variety of locations and lighting conditions. Heck, even I have trouble with that.

Is there any scene that you’ve found challenging? Would actually have some value to you then and all you have to do is show the frame you want predicted.

That’s an example of a spot where I missed the cut out to the non-spec cleaned DNR version. I’m sure there’s a few issues like that scattered throughout the film.

The Original Trilogy restored from 35mm prints

BWA HA HA HA!! Forgot about the effects of being on the South side of the equator! Stay warm. Or come visit us in the states. 😃

Good luck with your surgeries bro! A few years back I had my appendix and gall bladder removed 3 months apart. It can take a lot out of you. I enjoyed the jello and pudding though, eats lots of pudding for us. 😃

SUGGESTION

Film a 15 minute side story about two wampas that meet and fall in love and have children. But when the Rebel alliance lands on the planet, the ships accidentally cause ice fragments to impale and kill the little ones, and now we have a better understanding for the motive for them attacking Luke on the Taun-Taun and for why they always seem so angry.

Finally, when the last Rebel ship (the Falcon?) leaves Hoth… show the mom and dad, looking up at the sky with a single tear falling from their eye.

Dreamaster, I am really looking forward to this. Thank you for devoting so much time to improving the original grindhouse release.

That means a lot to me Bluto, I appreciate it. Unless something goes wrong with the review, version 2 will go out Saturday.
