How big is the 1080p DNR fileset?

I’ll need to tidy up my hard drive!

1080p is ~40gb.
2160p is ~48gb.

The subtle pink cast has been completely removed, which is great, but I kinda like the grain. Is there any possibility of releasing a version of 4K77 with the colour timing of the DNR version and film grain? It would be the best of both worlds.

I’d very much like such a version as well.

So would I, but I’m afraid it’s not that simple. I took the original release and ran it through After Effects for Denoising, then Phoenix for additional cleanup and PF Clean for shot by shot color correction. It went through After Effects again for additional scene by scene color correction to arrive at RC1 (the first private beta release). Then the output from RC1 had a second round of shot by shot color correction (almost every shot in the film) to get to the final release.

So to get to roughly the same place colorwise, at the very least I have to render it all out to DPX again (this time without the DNR), run it through my PF Clean project again, and then render it out of not one but two After Effects project files.

A potential solution could be to put the dnr version on top of the non dnr version in premiere or after effects and set the blend mode to “color”. Theoretically you’d get the luminosity of the non dnr version but the colors of the dnr version.

That works quite well actually.

Is there any reason why the 2160p DNR version is just 48 GB? I If I remember correctly the non DNR version was about 80 GB.
Is it intentional?
Either way I would like to thank Team Negative 1 and Williamrob, this DNR version really looks cleaner and sharper compared to the non DNR version.

Yes this was intentional for two reasons:

  1. A LOT of people had real trouble playing the 80+ GB no DNR version, and being x265 it didn’t really need to be that big.
  2. The no DNR version was encoded with a specific bitrate (80 Mb/s), while this one was encoded using a quality based setting.

Conversely, the 1080p version is bigger than it was for exactly the same reasons: the noDNR version was encoded using quality based settings, while this one was encoded using a CBR of 40 MB/s for maximum quality - filesize didn’t seem so important here because whether it was 30 GB or 40 GB it was still going to need a DL BD 50 so why not make it maximum quality?

The nonDNR version had a lot of grain so it needed a higher bitrate to preserve it. The DNR version is not as complex so it doesn’t need that high of a bitrate.

Is the DNR version also posted on a.b.starwars? I could only find the no-DNR version. No luck finding an nzb on binsearch.info, I even tried downloading the headers manually.

Thanks

Edit: NM, “found” it…TY

Hopefully a Blu-ray iso will be released soon ish (but it might be a few months), but all you need is tsmuxer to create an iso.

how does one gain access to the dnr version?

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version. Auntie Derry/Rumpelstiltskin.

Oh man, this is awesome. I suddenly do not give a crap how long it takes Disney to put out an GOUT release. Bring on 4K83!!!

I’ve taken the 4k edition with dnr, but there is an issue with vlc accepting the format (the soft crashed after a few seconds). Any advice on how to play it with a computer ? Thanks in advance !

Try “PotPlayer” It’s a nice FREE Media Player.

I think i’ve found the right file on a.b.starwars but it’s asking for a password. Is this common knowledge?

I’m struggling to find a download link - I want the 2160p DNR version only. Don’t have MySpleen access. Doesn’t seem to be freely(?) up on a.b.starwars - one I can find looks like it needs a password. Any tips on where to look? Maybe someone could PM me a .nzb file?

Thanks

pretty sure the DNR version hasn’t made it to usenet yet… and there would be no password.

Don’t have a comparison to share, but for me personally, the DNR version has completely supplanted Despecialized.

Are Harmy’s edition tracks compliant with the 4k77 project 1080p edition ?

And yep, the video quality is stunning. I also love the colors of the dnr edition, they are beautiful.

Brillant work guys !

Seems like you are correct. I was pointed in the right direction by another forum member since Usenet was the wrong place.

It is excellent. I can’t say the pure quality looks any better than Despecialized but it certainly looks more ‘3d’ and has more depth. Had some slight juddering on my home PC so i’m going to try it on the TV via USB stick.

Both are GOUT synced, so yeah, any audio or sub track that works on one will work on the other.

Is 4K DNR and 1080p DNR available at (how about) MEGA download?
