Automated color grading and color matching with a Machine Learning Algorithm
Time

Dre, don’t want to say that DVD menu colors are right (are they?) or better than to other grading, but in the remote chance you would do a MENU-BOT, here you are a comparison (left GOUT, right DVD menu):

Don’t know if your software would be confused by the fact the frames have not the same aspect ratio (some are closer when cropped, though) and have different elements.

Combining two video sources to accrue detail
Time

I usually do this:

  • convert PAL 25fps to 23.976fps (or 24fps, in those rare cases), tempo and/or pitch (whichever is needed)
  • synch PAL video to 23.976fps (24fps) source; audio would follow, of course

Alien: Covenant - IMAX edition [spoRv]
Time

It was released several days ago… and I know it would be better without blurred subs, but that’s the only source, so… just select YAO subtitles, and the shots with blurred subs and/or logo would be just matted to 2.40:1!

STAR WARS: EP V &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>AVAILABLE NOW</strong>

I made a few screenshot comparisons from the first act. I can make more if anyone is interested.

Great! Would be even great to have them all in a single comparison page (on screenshotcomparison or also https://diff.pics); for this purpose, JPG would do, to have the page light enough.

These screenhots show the labour of love Adywan used in this project…

Star Wars saga - Extra Extended Edition (1080p)
Time

You know? Happy to have waited until today… c’mon, you all know why! 😄

Some ideas I think I’ve expressed in the thread, but too lazy to come back to read…

open matte shots: in particular from DVD menus, but other static ones could be recreated, as explained in this clip https://vimeo.com/196835947 - now it’s possible to mask the added “slices” top and bottom with an hack that would work an almost all players
black & white deleted scenes: I’d prefer to have them colorized, but I’m not that good at is; help is still needed
EP 1, 2, 3 deleted scenes: many are almost ready
EP 4, 5, 6 deleted scenes: they need to be cleaned, so if some very skilled talent would chime in…

Dunno how much it would take to merge two sources (or average/median more) using photoshop, but with avisynth the encode time is pretty fast (from real time with old PC up to 4/5 times with newer ones)

No Country for Old Men: Modern Noir Collection
Time

AFAIK the various b&w versions of color films (like Logan, The Mist, Fury Road) were color corrected scene by scene (or even shot by shot), so if you would achieve a great result, you should follow this path… I know, painful, but rewarding! 😉

Difference between desaturated and your version is minimal… I’d go with something strong, like high contrast:

of course you can have crushed blacks and/or clipped whites, but you will decide if it’s the price you want to pay to get a different visual style; of course there are also many steps inbetween - play with contrast, brightness, gamma, and also RGB color channels. And have fun!
