Man, I didn’t realize how orange & blue this movie was. This monitor isn’t calibrated at all, but a lot of that orange (especially in the 16mm) looks almost neon.
Who knew the Star Wars fandom would be first to release the Star Wars OUT (or in any form for that matter) in 4K before Lucasfilm or Disney…
…probably most of us… ¬_¬
At this rate, I seriously doubt Disney has any interest in the OUT. And unless they accept Mike Verta’s offer, I seriously doubt they could do any better.
You’re joking right? The blurays were created from scans of the original negative, the original negative was not color graded for theatrical release, so the entire movie had to be graded from scratch for the bluray. In other words, ALL of the colors were altered for the bluray.
Not only that, but according to Mike Verta’s analysis, some of the shots look as if there was so much color loss, that they were basically colorizing grayscale footage.
Did they color grade the Blu from scratch, though? I thought they used the DVD SE masters as a base, and just fixed some bits and pieces.
