Williarob will be using Dre’s new correction for an update that will also replace many of the patched-in Blu-Ray frames with new 4K print scans (some from an LPP print, some from a 1997 SE print).

Will there be any frames used from the 4K Disney+ version or have they got all the frames from prints now?

In some instances, the bluray frames could not be color matched to the print. If there are no print sources for a frame and the D+ frames match better, then they will be used. But the goal is to minimize the amount of footage from non 35mm sources used in the 4Kxx projects.

Oohteedee already partially “despecialized” the D+ versions of ANH and ESB using 4K77 and 4K80 sources. (Most of the 4K80 footage he cleaned himself, since that’s not done yet) if that’s what you’re looking for. He calls them “D+77” and “D+80”. Hopefully a D+83 will follow in the not too distant future, and all three D+ projects will quickly be upgraded to use the physical media when that becomes available next month.

Interesting. Didn’t even know about the ‘partially despecialized’ D+ versions.

I only mentioned the streaming 4K versions because, to me at least, that would be the next best source to use if for whatever reason you can’t find the necessary frames from a 35mm source, which would of course be preferable. Not to mention the CC on the Disney+ versions is leagues better than the 2004/2011 versions, so it should be less of a problem to color match to the 35mm material.

Good to know. But I have 1.4 now (thank you!) and just at first glance it’s way better than 1.0.

Never tell me the odds.

I downloaded v1.4 too and it is much better than v1.0, same goes for 4K83, v1.3 is better than v1.0

The 1080p version is available ready to burn, with menus etc. Not much point creating an ISO for the 4K version, as most people can’t burn it, and those who can probably won’t be able to play it anyway.

If you reduce the bitrate far enough to fit it on a BD50, it may or may not play on your UHD player (most won’t). blank BD 100 M discs are not cheap, and many will not work on your stand alone UHD player.

Most UHD players have a USB input, and can play MKV files, so why not just put that file on an external drive or USB stick and plug that in? Why bother with burning a disc at all? Is it really worth all that extra effort just to see a menu and click play? The end result is exactly the same: you watch the movie on your TV.

If all you want is a case on the shelf, then print one out and stuff an SD card or USB stick inside it.

First of all - The work you all have done and time spent on this is mind blowing. Not sure if a high-five or “awesome job” offers the proper amount of affirmation. On the UHD - burning/playing; strictly for the purpose of assembling a DEED collection I purchased a Blu-ray burner and made it capable for user friendly UHD burning and playing in standalone UHD players. Man, I even bought a Canon Pixma printer to print on the discs.(been obsessed lately). Anyway, I’ve created discs of Harmy’s and the 4Kxx 1080p versions. I’ve paused on the UHD versions due to confusing information out there on burning and playing the UHD made at home discs. I have XL Blu-rays ready to use. Can you expand on what you were mentioning about the burning and play-ability of UHD discs? I created ISO’s of the 4K versions using tsMuxer. What hiccups or speed bumps/roadblocks could I run into either burning the 4K iso’s of 77/83 and playing them via a player?
