OK, here it is:

Also, did you guys notice this? :-)

1) GOUT
2) SE
3) DeEd 2.0 

Again one frame closer to the original :-)

Actually two, I also restored the flash frame of Han just before this one :-)

 

method 2a didnt have audio when i played it.  for what its worth i thought 3b was the best.  but i still noticed the slow down.  i watched v1 again and didnt notice it.  what method was used there?

WOW,

huge improvement in my opinion.  you can hardly notice the change any more.

is it easy to just color correct a certain element in a frame?  i heard you mention a while back that you were having trouble color correcting specific things in a frame because it would throw other elements colors off.

PS maybe when you are done with the whole trilogy we can start a fund to fly harmy to America, rent a theater for a day, and have a star wars marathon screening his whole despecialized trilogy.  I would donate in a heart beat.

hey harmy,

if changing the sabers completely is too much trouble would you consider just color correct bens saber in that first clip from 0:00 to 0:41 to match the rest of the clip?  bens saber seems to be the most noticable

because of the sabers i feel like i'm watching the SE from 0:00 to 0:41 and then it's immediately switches to the gout for the rest of the clip.  kind of jarring

if not i guess i'll just dust off v1  :-D.  Hey at least it's not green.

I just got done watching the second clip and it looks really good but around 0:22 to 0:24 i noticed bens saber changed colors back to the SE.  Just thought i'd let you know if you feel like changing it.

sorry if i am being super critical but the closer this gets to being perfect the more excited i get.

The top left image is GOUT. As to the colours of the soldiers outfits, it is impossible to keep all the colours consistent, it is either the walls or the soldiers. In order to fix the soldiers, the walls have to get totally fucked up, in order to keep the walls pretty much consistent, the soldiers have to be fucked up just a little bit. It is unfortunately a necessary compromise.

was this compromise necessary when you were using the hdtv footage?

can you just color correct a portion of a shot?  sorry i am inexperienced with video editing.

just to be clear, the problem has to do with the new blu ray footage?

so you could still release v2 using the hd broadcast as the source instead of the bluray?

to be honest harmy, i would have no problem with you using the hdtv instead of the bluray.

awesome job on the credits.  Even though there's no music i was humming it in my head.  

 

with that said I kinda hate to bring this up again but the stars still seem too bright to me.  I guess I'm just use to the gout credits.  If the stars are too bright they seem to mix in with the texts brightness, where as in the gout they are dimmer and seem like part of the background rather than foreground.

I thought Mike's were a recreation.

Anyway, for me, credits are so seriously unimportant a part of the film, that I would never put so much work into re-creating them. If someone makes them and at least two other people are willing to proof read them, I'd be willing to use them of course. But as I said, I'll be using DJ's Blu for v1.2, which is devoid of some of the artefacts present in Mattman's version, which I used in v1.0, so they should be better.

I agree with you 100% on this Harmy, some here are getting way, way to damn nitpicky now, but like you said, they can make them themselves, I think some here forget what it is we are working with, and what we actually have at our disposal.

it was just a suggestion.  I don't think offering those is considered nitpicking.  If harmy feels like it isn't worth it then i understand

awesome, awesome work harmy.

if you would like a little constructive advice,

when the leia hologram first appears after luke says "were you on a star cruiser or..." she looked a little too blue.

everything else made my heart beat like a drum...well done!!  can't wait

by the way is the hologram color corrected or rotoscoped gout?

take all the time you need.  no matter what the release date is it's going to be better than lucas's which is probably the 12th of NEVER.

I think one major hurdle is the cost but to be economical you could just scan in the parts that were specialized.  people seem to forget that we already have about 80% of the original unaltered trilogy in HD.

Yes and no.  It still has the crushed blacks.  A fresh 35mm scan could avoid that.

 i agree a full scan would be ideal.  if the reels are damaged though or the person doesn't have enough money to scan it all i'd go with the highest priority frames which would be the specialized ones.  to be honest the crushed blacks don't bother me that much and i think if george had released the original unaltered trilogy in the quality of the 2004 dvds i would be for the most part satisfied. or at least not as pissed ;-)
