4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

OK first off I own the Blu-ray’s and the GOUT. As well as some other official copies.
I am just wandering what would I have to own to get the team negative1 stuff?
Could you just own the gout or do you need the Blu-ray’s?

that just happened to contain The Despecialized Edition?

What, you think they fell down holding a stack of blank discs and they accidentally got a bunch of Harmy’s work all over them?

What are you even talking about?

This is what I am saying.
If I want a copy of The Despecialized Edition I can’t buy it.
I have to download it my self and burn it to disk my self.
But if I am not smart and or have bad internet I have to find
some one to do it for me. Now disks, labels box’s and shipping,
all cost money. And I would want to reimburse the person who put
together a set and mailed it to me. Also putting it all together takes time.
Time is money so reimbursing the person for there time seems reasonable.
So would I be buying the The Despecialized Edition? Or Would I be buying blank disks, labels box’s and shipping, and paying off a favor?

About the letter.

Do you think mentioning Mike Verta and legacy would be a good idea?
Something like. We know about Mike Verta and legacy so don’t give us that no decent copies exist any more Crap.
But phrased more carefully.

General Star Wars Random Thoughts Thread
Time

Some thing I just thought of. Some one may have already thought of it but I am not a kid nor do I have kids so I did not think of it. I was watching a video of a kid reacting to “I am your father”. The description said the kid had seen I, II, Clone wars Series, IV, V, VI, rebels. So he skipped Ep III. Now I,II,IV,V, and VI are all PG. EP III is PG13. Technically a kid should not see EP III until they are older. I wonder if G.L. thought of this?

Darn! Some one needs to fined out what the truth is.
Who am I supposed to be mad at?
mverta for destroying my dreams?
OR Finnius for being an asshole and nearly giving me a heart attack!

Collaborative 35mm restoration proposition
Time

OK I think I have a better understanding of the new project now.
I came on to OT.com and I found out about T-1 and I thought “its all over!”
I panicked and became an idiot.
The Collaborative idea of many people working on say no less than 3 frames each
(1 frame & the 2 frames on either side) sounds like an idea I have herd before but I do not know where. I would like to no if there are scans available for all 3 movies. And if there are
scans from multiple prince in case some one wants to try some mike verta Magic on very ugly frames like the Vaseline landspeeder shot.

Star Wars GOUT in HD using super resolution algorithm
Time

OK thanks for the answer, I was just curious. Too bad it would not really help much.

Watching SD content is getting harder. You can't buy a new SD TV anymore.

I have a 32” 720P LCD that I can get SD to look good on if I tweak the settings just right and sit far enough away from it. But if 4K becomes standard I am not sure how bad SD will look on it.

wait hold on

"VidFire recreates the missing fields. It doesn't "recover them"

can you create fields that never existed

Hay there. I have a question.

Will the methods that you are using on the GOUT

work on other SD Materials?

Like old TV shows shot on SD video?

Or old 90s cartoons that are only mastered in SD?

Or on old Doctor who kinescop scans?

One thing that bugs me about that seen is how the back of the millennium falcon

is chopped off.

It was less noticeable on VHS in 4:3 but it was still there.

UGH!    Ruff. Rough.

"If I had a Light saber and a time machine, I would go back and kill the guy that invented Non-phonetic spelling."

Seriously something has to be psychotic when, a word that means it's spelled the way it sounds is not spelled the way it sounds.
 Phonetic should be f??nedik. Schwa should be a letter.

I looked up that Dark Energy Pro software.

Its amazing.

As for Grain on optical, I would say it would vary depending on the shot.

For example the Vaseline land speeder shot, is vary bad, and mite benefit from a bit more clean up, so it would not stick out so badly.

I can understand the space ship shots having some ruff Grain.

Its there because of the optical work, but it actually ads to the realism.

It makes it look like old stock footage, like it an old war movie.

Especially when you consider this.

1997 Special Edition Trilogy 5.1 Audio?
Time

It's worth considering whether the 1997 DTS Cinema mix is preferable to the newest, 2011 mix.  If anyone really wanted to "despecialize" the soundtracks, the 2011 mixes would be significantly easier to work with, for most people, and offer discrete LFE and surround channels.

 

Interesting.

I was thinking  the 1997 DTS Cinema mix would be best as it has stuff like

ANH Original Krayt Dragon Call
ESB original Emperor, voice and the original Boba Fett voice
 ROTJ would have no. “No Nooooo!”
