Thanks, poita. 😃 And since I know you’re working on the 97SE of ANH, I’ll take you up on that - it might be the first we see of the 97SE in HD. (This is the version I saw in cinema, so it does hold some special place for me even though I prefer the pre-SE.)
I’m actually considering whether it would be worth working at full BD resolution for this one. I think that’s about 1920x820. That’s all I’d probably need - but I’ll probably take a little at a time, and keep the rest stored elsewhere (my friend has much more disk space than I do).
I think the next thing I need to do is get the actual BD (the latest version I have legit is the 06 DVD for ANH and 04 for all; for now, I’m using WOWOW rips, and can plug in the BD later).
I’m in no rush - kinda waiting on 4K77 to be my source for original unmodified footage anyway.
ETA: Most likely I’ll work in short bits, scene by scene, and first learn my enemy by putting the different versions side by side. Then when I’ve decided what to do, I’ll write it into the final code. With the flip of a switch I might be able to create a full despecialization or a 97SE despecialization.
