more from the blu-ray screencaps site that are similar to my frames for you to comapre with (more and more it looks like either these caps were taken from a computer that either didn’t do max decoding or had jpgs too compressed or that Lucasfilm actually did some filtering and various jiggering around with the image):

i guess my scans just have tons more contrast and a different luminance curve
now I’d need to go see what the 35mm frames look like, did my scanning do it properly or get the wrong curve

it will be interesting to see what this project turns out like, hopefully they have a scanner and everything with perfect calibration to the film type, interesting to see how it turns out if so and what it looks more like, the blu or my scans here

The bluray has a significantly different color to the DVD, Better to compare with the HDTV version.

ah dang, I forgot, I got rid of my 35mm reel (the final one with the different marriage scene) for AOTC when I heard the blu-ray was coming out. arrrrr
now that was silly

I did keep Reel 6 from ROTS (a super quick peek at it again just now makes it appear to be in ultra good condition, basically fresh new with reel intro and countdown markers and taping), so it seems that is actually the only full reel I have (along with a few trailers (including AOTC from which pics above sourced), including a 1977 SW that has far less red shift than most, if still shifted).

“Once those are done, I will move onto AOTC, once I have the HDDs to store the scan on. It will be later this year, couldn’t put a timeframe on it at the moment.”

What is happening to the print reels once scanned later this year?
