Return of the GOUT - Preservation & Restoration

Maybe drop eedi2 because this is dropping a field and interpolating it if I remember right. This kind of neuters the rest of the filter chain. Also, maybe try qtgmc using inputtype=1 as this might fix the aliasing without dropping and interpolating fields. I definitely would not eedi2 and qtgmc together. Also, move qtgmc up the filter chain to where you currently have eedi2. No need to run it at an upscaled resolution it just takes longer.

I posted on Reddit, if you have an account please upvote and comment

I did something similar about a week ago in /r/movies and it pretty much went down in a ball of flames. I can imagine /r/starwars will be even less welcoming. Nevertheless, I upvoted you and all the others. I hope it gains traction.

EDIT: Links removed. Apparently it constitutes brigading. Whatever the hell that means. If you want, you can go to reddit and look around for the link in /r/starwars.

4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

Somebody should do one of these posts on Reddit:

<----- Number of people that want the original theatrical version of star wars released on blu-ray

If that hit the front page of reddit it would mean quite a bit I think. The OT crowd would definitely have to get the ball rolling. I’m assuming everybody has reddit accounts?

Star Wars on Super8

The footage was never rescanned and I have no idea if there are plans to do that but I doubt it. I have nothing to do with the scan at all. I’m just a guy that downloaded the raw files and decided to sync them to the gout.

I used upscaled gout footage and I made no attempt to make it blend in with the surrounding footage. It’s there as sort of a placeholder, plus it gives you an idea of the difference between the super8mm and the gout. It happens in the middle of the shot where luke is about to run out of the hut with his binoculars to look for r2 and ends right as luke gets attacked by the tusken raider.

That’s Lucasfilm for you: fucking over their benefactors since 1997. They’re no different from ISIS or the Taliban in terms of cultural destruction. Hence the reason I’m angry all the time.

Haha. Whoa dude. Beat yourself in the face for saying that one.

What does Puggo have to do with this? The raw files were made available to the public by Antcufaalb and Poita. If anybody wants recognition or feels that I forgot to mention them by all means let me know and I’ll give it.

Guys, we are the only keepers of the light. Like Roland Deschain, I have faith that someday we will reach the dark tower, but only of our own accord.

The theatrical colors of the Star Wars trilogy
Time

fwiw, the '89 french gold disc version was the most interesting french release to me despite the horrible pressing quality. The 94 and 95(pyramid) releases were a better pressing but I think they messed with some stuff as the colors don’t seem as vibrant to me. These are all theatrical prints btw.

The 1993 german silver screen collection was also seemingly less tampered with than the later french releases.

My favorite laserdisc thus far is the 82 Pan and Scan version from fox as it is probably the least tampered with. It is, however, pan and scan and I’m not a color guy so I can’t comment as to it’s authenticity but I “think” it’s pretty close to what it should be despite a slight redshift. The print must have been at least 4-5 years old by the time they scanned it and pressed this laserdisc.

On the left is a quick adjustment in vlc. I just adjusted the hue a tad and boosted the saturation. The right side is the original timing of the laserdisc. Assuming that I got the levels right before encoding, that is.

OT Japanese Special Collection - Single Pass Regrade
Time

These all looked terrible for me until I downloaded the jpg and viewed it in gimp or photoshop. Does screenshot comparison do some funky stuff when viewing it through the browser? I mean if you look at that snap of luke sitting in the cantina and then download the picture and view it does it look different to anybody else? Perhaps chrome is the culprit, I’m not sure. I just thought I’d throw it out there that downloading the jpg seems to produce better results for me.

BTW, glad to see people tinkering with the laserdisc releases!

How many home video masters are there for the original trilogy?
Time

It seems to be better than the US boxset to me. The French boxset that I have seems to be a poor pressing or badly converted to pal or both. Star wars is fine but rotj seems to be interlaced the last half hour or something and quite a bit of laser rot. Anyhow the German and British sets look pretty good to me.

This kind of situation is the one that I’m always worried about as I have a hardware raid setup at the moment as well. I believe the next time I set up raid it will be software Raid using DMRAID.

Star Wars Laserdisc Preservations. See 1st Post for Updates.

Well I wasn’t even planning on posting here. Was just browsing through the thread trying to find a link to some scripts I posted awhile back when my daughter ran along and decided to touch the mouse and double post for me 😃. Anyhow, since I can’t delete this I guess I can announce that an updated 480p version of Star Wars (1130-80) is now up on the spleen.

Is there any way to force an image size within tables? Or better yet, is there a way that I can simply use html?

Markdown is killing me. Is html blocked? I can’t seem to get it to work.
