I’m interested in how the colour looks in these shots on the bluray.

Can I request a shot from inside Ben’s hut?

The print is very clean! That cool color temp. makes the skin tones look like ham though 😛

It doesn’t hurt to offer help, but it always hurts to disregard those that do.

Is the contrast correct in these shots? They seem a tad bright.

What’s the internal temperature of a TaunTaun? Luke warm.

Okay, it’s 1am here, I’ll post one or two and then head to bed.

No, the gamma is in no way correct on these, nor is the colour.

When the paper sparkler is a dud and all you’re left with is a burning stick.

Wow! Greedo really does shoot first!

I’m more amazed that he not only gets blasted, but also managed to appear in the hangar afterwards

Found some approx. frames and did some quick matching using Dr.Dre’s ColorMatch tool. Matched the scan to both 4K77 and the Special Edition Projected Color Ref. with a little contrast adjustment. Here are the results:

4K77 match
SE Projected match

I then used the colormatching results and Neverar’s Technicolor Recreation as color references and made a correction for the scan that’s most likely innacurate, but derives from good intention–and boy is this thing CLEAN. Thank you poita!

Nice!!

My apologies I haven’t had time to do any colour correction on the images other than dragging the blacks down.

The triple flash process gives you files that capture all of the dynamic range of the print, but take a lot more work to colour correct than a single flash image does (but then you don’t capture the shadow detail).

Later today I can post a RAW file of a frame if anyone wants one. It will be about 100MB or so, vote on a frame and I’ll upload it when I get a chance.

I’m flat out with other work at the moment, and am dealing with a truly, truly difficult client, who flips from being super, incredibly friendly, to being incredibly abusive and threatening, and changes without warning. It shakes you up a bit, I’ll be glad when that job is over and I can spend more time doing stuff I genuinely love.

So pick a frame and I’ll throw a big green looking hunk of pixels up to play with.

In the meantime, if you want a truly clean frame, check this out 😄

It is just part of some experimenting, not indicative of anything, just thought some people might like to see a really clean image.

It is full resolution, and hasn’t been converted from scope yet, so will look tall.
