probably in ten years the neural net and deep learning computing will do this kind of things perfectly, like video upscale, black and white colorize, inpaint, color matching bewteen two clips… we’ll see!

Fingers crossed! 😄

Great, thanks! Sadly, this is just a nice idea for the moment, because, even if I could be able to recreate some shots, they will be not enough I think to justify a whole project… unless someone shows interest anyway, or would like to help with other ways to “fill” the missing parts.

Still, some shots could “maybe” used for the extended edition.

Have you tried seam carving? There are a couple of plugins for avisynth (both by V.C. Mohan).

MWilson, thanks for the function; sadly, it doesn’t replicate Ronster’s one…

Top ColorBalance, bottom Ronster:

still too magenta.

You’re right, that was just copying Ronster’s values above.
I’m working on something that should turn out closer.

  • find a color version (even in the lowest resolution/bitrate) to use as color reference - a really remote chance, but who knows, we have the Editdroid laserdisc, after all!

Benduwan, do you have a copy of the cantina scene like this!? I mean not blown out, doesn’t have to be color. That could be workable! 😃

Thanks!

@MWilson:
An avisynth script like colourlike, or there are other softwares that could do that. Today I reviewed the EP 6 deleted scenes included in the Rinzler ebooks, and luckily the b&w ones could be not used, as they are uninteresting or alternate takes, BUT the Rancor scene has shots not seen before, that will be great to reinsert! Your chromajig works well, but I think it’s impossible to reach good result with automatic colorize tools… I think that doing manual settings is the only way to go, possibly following a reference image/clip.

You are absolutely right. I would have to work in Photoshop. Just a starting point☺

I know this might be odd… has anyone tried the color match tool on similar frames that have been reduced to black and white, then applied the algorithm to the deleted scenes? I understand it probably won’t work, but worth the try.

To which color matching tool do you refer? That could be helpful for me 😃
I uploaded another test, the trailer for ANH. I wrote a new script, hopefully it can come a bit closer.

Hi! First post. I would be more than happy to colorize the deleted scenes from V and VI. (When Applicable)

Do you have an efficient method for doing so? As I understand it, it takes entire studios to do this sort of thing.

Thanks

Sure do, I use avisynth scripts to start and then I adjust and correct with photoshop.
