Could you provide me the link to v3? I’m not happy about the ‘digital’ look of the new 4k remaster, so I’ve finally decided to settle for the Green tint edition. I’m so happy that I stumbled across this fix for the fellowship - looks awesome. I think this will be my go to solution until some day in the distant future they are doing another remaster… hopefully more true to the original tone the trilogy had.

Just so you know the theatrical edition blu-rays also suffer from altered colors.

I am thinking about making a regrade of the new UHD Transfers of LOTR, so they look like the DVDs, in terms of sharpness and definition would it be worth it or should i stick to this version?

I would go with the UHD versions. They are definitely improvements.

No.

No.

I was talking about the color grading which I think is an improvement over the original. It still has way too much DNR and EE though.

Ok, I completely agree with that statement.

Would someone be able to provide the v3 edition as well? I have the extended blu-ray set and also bought the 4k edition digitally, but the DNR is a bit much.

I would love a link to v2. I passed on the 4k set because of the dnr. I love my 2011 blu rays, but the color on Fellowship needed obvious work. Glad to see someone has taken the initiative. Is there a good way to donate for this project? Thanks.

Actually, now that I do more examination I found that it depends on the scene. Isengard and Rivendell look much better on the blu-ray, While stuff like Hobbiton and the mountains look much better on the UHD. But if I was watching fellowship I would choose the Blu-ray anyday because of the atrocous quality of the UHD.

I agree that some scenes look better in the BD. For example all of the scenes in The Shire have all the warmth and atmosphere sucked out in the UHD. But other scenes such as the mountains do indeed blow the BD out of the water.
