4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

wouldn’t be mad at disney updating the films unlike the special edition, by rescanning all the original elements and digitally compositing them again now with better tech and higher resolutions, while still ultimately restoring the film to the original theatrical cut, no ‘contemporary’ regrade.

and it’d be cool if all the lightsabers looked as good as they do in TLJ.

though they should probably just compensate mike for his work on Legacy when that’s totally finished and release that first.

Okay here’s something I am not sure has been asked before, but in TLJ does young Ben Solo use Anakin’s saber to block Luke? Is this ever mentioned elsewhere?

nah. for a moment i thought it’d make sense for it to be the same saber because of Rey’s experience touching Anakin’s lightsaber in Maz’s castle in TFA but taking a second look…

looks like kylo’s saber but not black/red with the guards.

I’m pretty sure he uses Anakin’s saber. That’s why he says “it belongs to me” in TFA.

kylo may have felt entitled to it because of his family, but he did not use it to defend himself against luke in that tent.

Someone has already done that with Kill Bill. Don’t remember who, but there’s a BD50 sized MKV of the “Whole Bloody Affair” edit on blutopia that used that guy’s color restoration of Vol. 1 - at work now so I can’t check to tell you who made it, though.

Ah, cancel that then. I bet it’s on the spleen.

Yes, but I still don’t get it. He doesn’t like the Resistance or the First Order… so his nickname is “Don’t Join”?

No, don’t join is his motto, DJ is his nickname.

find it coincidental that the acronym for Master Codebreaker is MC, while acronym for Dont Join is DJ. Rian Johnson’s a big hip hop fan?

Are you talking about 29.97fps source, right?

yea the NTSC version of the episode, as well as the 25fps pal version.

On an unrelated project but similar note, I’m wondering if this is overlay method is possible to colorize the b&w section in Kill Bill Vol 1. using the 480p Japanese DVD.

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW

I like it but I still prefer McDiarmid as the Emperor in ESB. It would be awesome to see a “canon-friendly” edition with the good changes and fit more in line with the new canon without all the unnecessary scenes and continuity errors created by the Special Editions and Prequels. (Mostly the Prequels.)

palp’s ROTS makeup looked pretty crappy.

Despite it getting an Oscar nomination.

I for one agree with the academy: no trophy.

i wish they’d reshot that dialogue during ROTJ’s principal photography, or even during phantom menace’s filming. palp’s ROTS makeup looked pretty crappy.

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

Sounds good! Fingers crossed I can sync the audio in sections with pluraleyes once I’ve got the videos decimated to the same 23.976 frame rate.

Thanks all! hah. if I can replicate the PaNup process with Avisynth (on a VMware install, however) I’d go that route.

Since I’d use the original NTSC audio and re-sync the language tracks from the PAL discs, I suppose it’s a matter of getting the sources synced at 24fps first. What’s the slickest way to get that done? Shot by shot as an image sequence?

Does someone have a strategy for or list of softwares to use to accomplish this?

I’ve seen laserdisc rips that mention “This has been captured 5 times, then averaged to reduce dot crawl and noise.”

I’m wondering how to go about this “averaging”, with perhaps more disparate sources. I’ve got an episode of X-Men The Animated Series in PAL and NTSC. After syncing the video to 24fps and matching up the progressive frames, I wonder if some details could be produced, while also reducing MPEG-2 artifacts, combing and coloured noise.

I edited the list as I’ve just discovered the “Before Trilogy” has been released by Criterion as a wonderful looking boxset in the U.S. Also, the outstanding news has dropped that “Batman: Mask of the Phantasm” is coming to Blu-Ray later this year and it’ll be presented in both 16x9 and open matte. I honestly never thought I’d see the day!

whoa! i got the laserdisc for the PCM audio to make a custom DVD, but now this—great news!

Rebels is cool or whatever, but after they directly tie into the events of Rogue One (if they ever do) they should do a Season (or five seasons) of stories set after the events of Return of the Jedi, before The Force Awakens.
