TEAM NEGATIVE1 - STAR WARS 1977 - 35MM EASTMAN VS TECHNICOLOR THEATRICAL VERSION (RELEASE DETAILS AND UPDATES)
Time

We don’t have any completion dates for these projects.

All the time spent on working on them is done by volunteers during their spare time.

Most of our team is on break currently after having finished off the first part of our Star Wars project.

It might be better to ask if there are some forum members that can burn or download the movies for you,
Possibly just for postage. There should never be a charge for them.

Team Negative1 - Return of the Jedi 1983 - 35mm Theatrical Version (Release Details and Updates)
Time

We are using Intel core I5/I7 machines with 8G-24G ram. There are no custom setups, basically higher end PCs, with mid level and higher end GPU for rendering. Lots of drives, internal and external ranging from 500G to 3-4 Terabyte ranges.

Some members have dual custom monitors, while others have ultrawide 21:9 monitors.

Screenshots of monitor and layout: 

Note the Metal Xwing and Tie fighter

Screenshots of the trilogy.

Normal size for 1080p (1920x1080)

Full widescreen (some tiny edges at times depending on cropping)

You can read about other people’s setups here:

Or feel free to add your own setup to that post

The number of people on the team varies from time to time, started off with 1, expanded to 2,
and then finally got to 4-5, with some leaving, and others joining.

We have several ‘helpers’, that are just like team members, that help with distribution, quality checks, etc.

Poita, Harmy, and others are contributing and collaborating directly and indirectly. There are many others here at OT that also help out.

I think you are making this way too confusing.

  1. Base of the project is from Technicolor
  2. Missing frames and scenes will be from an Eastman Kodak print (Crawl, etc)
  3. The LPP was only used for cleanup on frames that still had damage even after the automated process, we have not decided on using it for complete replacement just yet

The project is too early in its stages, to discuss concrete details about what
exactly will be done.

The examples and previews are from tests that we have done, that are still undergoing
changes. Hence, why we are not committing to a concrete process.

This thread is a placeholder for upcoming information, and people to comment on.

The most up to date information, samples, and discussions can be found here:

We will also be updating the facebook link, and youtube channel when we can.

Encoding tips and ideas
Time

There are no current plans for anything higher than 25G encodes, due to the time, planning, and distribution of those files. Even little fixes, takes us lots of time to upload, download, and re-encode.

Also, if you have the bluray files, you can demux the .m2ts files and make your own versions from that.

We don’t actually know what the Restored version will be called.

Thanks again to people that support this project with on-topic posts.
Off-topic posts will be reported.


We have completed receiving feedback from the members that saw the previews.

Thanks to all of them for their comments, and we will try to fix what we can.

Improvements in Sanitized version

Stabilization of shots across all reels.
