The more layers you composite together with film, the grainier the shot will end up, since the grain of each layer of film is included in the composite. With digital compositing you can isolate the elements and combine them all separately, so you’re not adding grain on top of grain on top of grain.

True. But what did the SE version do to make it so clean and crisp, particularly the vents on the back end - and about that was the offensive to the restoration plan?

Sorry I say grainier as a catch-all term, it generally looks blurrier and more washed out. I’m assuming this is what it probably looked like between 1980 to 1995 but it’s been so long. Just curious on the technical differences, beyond of course just rotoscoping in GOUT elements which are poorer resolution. Unless these bits are taken directly from the older releases (specifically shots of the speeders approaching Han’s igloo, the flat angle as they go over the trenches, and the low level angle as they use the tow cable).

In ESB Despecialized the speeders on Hoth look far grainier than they did in the SE version, but how could that be? Is this just a result of recomping the effects?

Maybe Yoda is just that strong even in death. Maybe being dead for 30 years powered him up. Maybe the temple location gives him more energy. Maybe it’s just a thing that wanted to do for fun and Obi-wan takes things too seriously. Maybe the the question isn’t why can he do this out of nowhere, but why shouldn’t he? There are so many options in a magical space fantasy and

again the movie never explains why Yoda can and Obiwan can’t. It never explains that it takes 30 years for him to be able to do what he did.

again I say don’t you think it would have been nice if Yoda after he died in ROTJ made an appearance in the Emperor’s throne room and zapped Palpatine? Oh yeah it takes 30 years to be able to do that but the movie doesn’t explain that.

people are arguing over the supposed rules, again.

excuse me for wanting the Star Wars universe to make sense, and not liking plotholes/continuity errors.

You’re excused.

What I offered were possibilities, because in the end it doesn’t matter at all.

Last time someone tried to provide exposition and explanations it was in Episode III: The Worst One Yet. Why does Old Ben only appear as a ghost in Empire and not before, maybe at Luke’s medal ceremony? If he can appear to Luke and give him directions why doesn’t he show up and tell Leia about the trap? How can he sit on a log when before he was just kinda floating? All these answers and more in the next exciting chapter of just try and relax it doesn’t make any difference.

Solo - Han Movie <strong>NON-SPOILER</strong> thread

I guess there’s not much to spoil. It will probably just fill in all the blanks as efficiently as possibly from Jabba’s shipment, Lando, Chewbacca, The Kessel Run. They have one movie to do it, and I predict it will all be used.

4K restoration on Star Wars

The SEs should be the special feature this time, not the other way around. Then one day people can think of them as weird curios.

Not that it will ever happen, this release or any other.
