kk650's Regraded Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi V2 (blanket yellow tint removed from blu-ray)
Time

I like a few of the scenes with the blanket yellow tint, but it does kill a few shots and I definitely think it does make the film look a lot more aggressive in color terms. Can I see what the night time and interior scenes look like with and without the yellow tint, if it’s present there at all?

Sounds like you may already have it.
The Editdroid version is the broadcast master.
I am fairly certain the Zion Hybrid version (mentioned above) was taken from that source and a little editing was done to improve it, and the commercials were added back in.
Both those versions have threads on this forum which go into greater detail.

Oh damn, I need to look into this. Thanks for the info, at the moment I’m still getting used to using AviSynth and I’ll check out the other threads

How Many Versions are there of the AOTC

Oh cool! It’s not a big change but certainly one that should be preserved. If you look into how much it would cost to clean and scan that reel I might just have to help fund it 😃

I have a bit of a strange update with you, but I still have a way to preserve the change. Throughout the past few day I was trying to see if I could get some restoration done on the reel, and I first went to a small theater to see if I could get my can played.

And, it was pretty bad. A lot of damage was done to the physical film, with most of the film having this weird marble effect. Fortunately, I could still see the order of all the sequences, and using that I can take scenes from the theatrical trailers to recreate that change.

I will try to do some digging into finding better reels of AOTC, but for now I can splice up the trailers to make the original scene. Also, I’m really sorry for the late reply, life got in the way of things but I should be free for a while now.

I own one of the original AOTC 35 mm film reels, so if I get in touch with one of my local theaters, I’ll do a capture for you guys to find the differences.

Oh wow how’d you acquire that?! Do you think you’d be able to get it scanned?

Aw crap man, this is just one sixteenth of the film, with most of it being crusty and ruined. I’ll see if I could get this bit restored and I’ll try to scan whatever I have.

so what´s with your deleted sw movie projekt?

Halted, at least unless someone more skilled than me would be able to clean up EP 4,5,6 deleted scenes, and possibly colorize the b&w scenes - about this, there is a nice tutorial on doom9, under avisynth usage subforum.

I’m definitely not skilled, but I could try to clean up the deleted scenes. Colorizing however, you would have to ask someone with much more expertise.

<em>Restoring the wondrously disastrous</em> <strong><em>Star Wars Holiday Special</em></strong>
Time

Fans of Star Wars know of the low budget flop known as The Star Wars Holiday Special and recognize it for it’s heavy impact on Star Wars culture. There exists many low resolution captures of the TV film, but at this point there exist no film reels, upscales, cleanups, or any format that is fit for average flatscreen TV viewing- if you are willing to indulge into the film, that is.

Well, like many avid Original Trilogy members, I’m going to attempt a restoration of The Holiday Special into 720p.

At the moment, I only have the Blu-Ray Boba Fett animation, and one crusty copy of the dreaded film itself. Any sources and pieces of media would help me with this time consuming project, and I shall keep you all updated.

Happy Life Day - Sishyo512

Update March 31

I have found several sources that I have in mind for using in my upscale.

1 - The 2011 Blu-Ray Star Wars Saga set - I shall take the Boba Fett upscaled animation & space shots taken from A New Hope.

2 - Tasjo 2013 WHIO - The highest quality tape without over edge & base for editing

3 - Zion Hybrid - The absolute highest quality I could find, with heavy edge

4 - Angrysun 2005 KCCI - Has the most genuine coloring that I have found so far

It would help if someone could help me find the Broadcast Master as I am having a few issues finding it. But for now those will be the sources I can use. I’ll manually cleanup all the tapes and keep the project as a Work In Progress.

Keep you all updated soon - Sishyo

Updates in the month of April

April 5th: I have received information about the actual Broadcast Master, along with HD versions of the trailers during the program. I have also started playing around with AviSynth which should come in handy when I get into editing.

This old guy ran this theater for a few decades and died a couple years ago, and his belongings were sold by his family. I bought the reel because I thought it would make a fine addition to my collection, but I never opened it mainly because I don’t have the technology to use it.

When I find it, if it’s in a usable condition then I will certainly scan and share the film with you guys.
