Color matching and prediction: color correction tool v1.3 released!

It’s generally much faster to export a LUT for use in Davinci Resolve or Adobe After Effects, than to do it frame by frame in the tool. Shot-by-shot correction still takes a lot of time though, as each LUT is good for roughly 100 frames, and there are roughly 2,000 shots in a two hour film.

Thanks, I imported the generated LUT into Premiere and it applied instantly, with the cost of spike in RAM.

I’m testing it out on my dragon ball now, and I have a panning shot where there’re noticeable ringing artifacts along the lines. I have to turn smooth up to 0.9 in order to get it away. Is this normal? Can you take a look? I uploaded the reference and test image.

test: http://i.imgur.com/I54GI7O.png

Did you make sure the cropping is the same for the test and reference frames? If so, could you also share the raw test frame?

I tested on 3 other scenes, they all work fine even without cropping. I did try cropping this test image to match the reference, but it’s still the same problem with the white ringing between the character and the sky. I also tried sampling from the last frame of this same scene and it works fine again without the need to pump up the smoothing parameter.

test: http://i.imgur.com/sRUrxNw.png

The fact that it works without cropping is fortunate, but the method is not developed specifically assuming the image content is exactly the same, except for the colors. It may work fine for some frames, but give artifacts for others.

The reason you get ringing is, because the ringing is already present in the test frame, a side effect of DNR:

The ringing has rougly the same color as the clouds next to it, both being light blue.

The clouds in the reference image are more white, than in the test frame, while the sky is a darker blue:

By color matching the color of the clouds, you automatically also give the ringing roughly the same color as the clouds, causing them to be more apparent against the darker blue background. Sadly there’s very little that can be done about this.

By increasing the smoothing parameter, you reduce the color gradients, as the algorithm tries to keep the gradients as close to the original gradients as possible, while also trying to find the best color match. This may reduce the ringing somewhat, but will generally also result in a poorer color match.

What about color correcting the dragon boxes instead?

Don’t yell at me just asking how long until the a new hope revisited hd and jedi revisited hd will be out give or take? 10 20 years and no i’m not being a sarcastic. I’m just curious because i’m really looking forward to it and just was wondering that’s all. For the record i’m not trying to sound pushy i’m just curious that all. Because to me these are the complete versions of the original star wars trilogy

Why do you ask this when you know from asking about Empire that nobody, not even Ady knows for sure and it’s kind of annoying?
It shouldn’t​ take as long as ESB:R as some of the delays there were unique life events and technology and skills have improved. But life happens while we make plans. Patience. For the Jedi it is time to eat as well 😃

I’m sorry it’s only because i want to watch all three of the original trilogy revisited hd that’s all and watching empire revisted hd without a new hope revisited hd bothers me.

if they could or wouldn’t mind of course

Seriously, not to be rude, but your chances of getting someone to just make these “fixes” for you are probably pretty nonexistent. The amount of time and effort such an undertaking would take could be massive. It’s not some simple little thing someone could whip together for you in no time. Your best bet would be to try and teach yourself how to do some of this work. The Adobe Suite can work wonders on some material. You might be surprised at what you’re capable of.

How do i find out how to do this?

Obi Wan Kenobi Always Stressed Patience

Real Life Syndrome occupies a lot of time. 😃

I have no plans to work on TRGB. The expertise required is beyond me and a good restoration would probably involve getting access to the original elements, seeing as you mentioned issues with dirt on the transfer…

but it’s not the worst part it’s mostly the over saturated colors and over blown contrast and rainbowing that’s it if those things can be fixed then i rather have someone fix them.

Do you really think you deserve a straight answer?

Tell you what - you will get to find out the answer to that question when you download ESB:Revisted and discover everything for yourself.

Only a little over a month to wait.

I thought he would have gave us an update on that as well that’s all.

So does this mean you got the wampa to work if so i really can’t wait for june 😃

No. No Wampa. Like the mechanical shark in Jaws, Ady could not get the Wampa to work. So, taking a cue from Spielberg, Adywan has decided that less is more. There will be an augmented white blur that knocks Luke off his Tauntaun, and the suspense of not knowing or seeing whatever malevolent force is lurking out there in the snow will enhance the entire experience. In the cave sequence, shadows will cover the threat approaching Luke’s hanging form in the cave with some of Williams’ academy award-winning theme from two years earlier intermixed with the Force theme to build the tension. As the shadows grow closer with audible growls of the unseen creature approaching, Luke cuts himself free and swings the saber and we are left with that single furry white arm falling cauterized to the snowy floor - leaving us to our frightened imaginations of just what it was that attacked Luke.

Anyone doing restorations of 80s cartoon shows? because an example of a show that needs a good restoration is the real ghostbusters. it has Over blown colors and contrast dirt scratches etc. they need to be fixed. Also I don’t know if this last one is true but missing footage. Sorry for asking in here just desperate for an answer and this is ghostbusters related.

Ugh, really… You couldn’t wait to ask until April was actually over?

I’m not surprised, just so annoyed by the disrespect I’d rather Ady wait a couple weeks (just to punish you) despite my own eager anticipation.

I wasn’t trying to be pushy this time i just would like to have gotten a hey things are delayed because of unforeseen circumstances something. I don’t like sounding like i’m pushy i don’t like it not one bit. I just want a nugget even if it’s a small nugget a nugget of info that’s all. I can’t help being a impatient his edit beyond perfect it’s in a way legendary i can’t wait.
