ANH GOUT Reconstruction (A WIP)

 (Edited)

So in 2006 along with the normal special edition discs, bonus discs of the OG trilogy (unaltered) were released. even Though they had terrible quality for a DVD, the color and layout were loved by many fans, You can argue that it may be the most natural grade in ANY star wars release. I will be recreating the (ANH) GOUT in HD using 35mm sources and the color corrected version of ANH done by Adywan, with a few adjustments the color and layout will match the GOUT no problem as well as other tweaks like Greedo having no subtitles, different desert matte, and many more, To be fair this edit isn’t 100% accurate, I will be fixing compositing errors, Garbage mattes will be removed, And some changes will be left in, Mostly compositing changes. But other than that it is completely theatrical. this fan edit will be released later this year (Maybe).

It should be blue like in Harmy’s edit. It was color graded based on 35mm sources so it would be very accurate to the original.

Right, I will post a screenshot later of the blue wall.
But remember it wont be as blue as in Harmy’s edit, because this is supposed to replicate the Gout.
So it will have a blue tint but not as much as harmy did.

Pay it no mind.

And unlike many other edits It will be very easy to download and watch.

What do you mean?

I mean I will post a link here instead of putting it on usenet or something.
Which is complicated for some people.

If direct download links were allowed here, don’t you think we’d all post them?

Sorry, I goofed I guess I cant do that, I will find another way to release it.

Pay it no mind.

Will there be a version of this project that uses the 2019 masters as the main source in the future?

I hate the Disney Channel Live Action Universe

For ANH, Im using Adywans colour corrected 2011 Blu-ray, as that looks better and requires less work than a brand new color grade on the 2019 edition.

Pay it no mind.

I have finally finished tweaking Adywans colour graded Blu-ray. To match the Gout.
Here are some pics: http://www.framecompare.com/screenshotcomparison/F29BFNNU

They look really good ThatGuy, good work👍.

Yes, it really does look good. Having scanned at least 10 prints of Star Wars at this point I have come to accept that the colors of the GOUT are not always representative of the theatrical look of the film, however, I spent the 80s and 90s watching the VHS tapes over and over so this is how I remember the film looking and I’m very glad that you are preserving that look in such high quality. I will definitely enjoy watching it.
