Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

Quite an interesting workflow. Reminds me of some other software out there for completely unrelated tasks (process automation). Makes sense to see such concepts applied in this realm of working with video. Kind of wild to see it in action. Looks like it will take a lot of time to work through each scene, and then work on rendering so many pieces.

Yeah - it is time-consuming but in that it’s no different from my v2.0 workflow.

In v3.0, the recomped shots will be restored using 35mm for sure. In v2.5, the number of Despecialized shots will be more or less the same as in v2.0 but those using GOUT heavily will be replaced with 35mm based ones.

That reminds me, that I probably should have posted these here, since the shot I’m showing is from Empire:

I actually realized while doing some test image-sequence exports, that I have Neat Video 4 for Premiere, which has pretty awesome auto dust busting (unlike Neat Video 3, which I have for AE), so together with Warp Stabilizer, I can do all the auto cleanup and stabilization that will be needed, directly in Premiere and won’t be needing Avisynth at all 😃

Also, I’d like to make a video, showing me making the first few v3.0 shots, which would introduce my new workflow and how the spreadsheet will be used in it.
Can anyone recommend a good screen-capture software, that will be able to handle two 4K monitors, ideally saving each to its own video file, and won’t slow the computer down too much?

Another thing I could use some opinions on is what image file format to use for the image sequences.

Also, how can I load an image sequence into avisynth?

OK, so I locked the editing access to the spreadsheet:

If the people, who helped me create it could, please, PM me their email addresses, I will add them, so they can still edit the sheet, if needed. Thanks 😃

I decided to go with this in the end: https://www.amazon.com/20TB-Desktop-External-Drive-WDBFBE0200JBK-NESN/dp/B074R34DD3

This will enable me to transfer all the stuff from my internal drives and have those free for working on Despecialized.

I got it for 15,000 Czech Crowns (about 680 USD), which is a bargain, because normally HDDs cost around 1000CZK per TB.

I don’t think this is a task for Despecialized, since it would be about restoring a very specific version, which is only a curiosity for the most devout purists, so a 35mm preservation, if a print of this version was found, which would be 100% theatrically faithful, would be much better suited for this kind of task.

Certainly something to consider - it sucks that we can’t get seamless branching to work properly - I’d love to have one disc where you’d go to the menu and select between the US 1977 Version, US 1981 version or one of the foreign language versions, each with their own crawl, burned in subs and (for some) credits. I’m not sure if we have scans of both but it would be awesome to have both versions of the English credits as well, where one would run with the '77 version and the other with the '81 version.

And then the MKV release would be the US '77 version.
