Same here. But Star Wars is the film I was most looking forward to seeing as a version 3.0 release anyway, so I’m not complaining!

I’m loving these. It’s great to be able to watch the originals as close to original as possible.

I enjoy Harmy’s videos, showing work on lots of details oft missed while watching the completed Star Wars. Though, referring to this clip as “finished” is premature. Everything is up for change up until it’s version is released.

The multi-compare video (posted above) presently shows v3.0’s color moving in a wrong direction – away from v2.5’s near-cyan detention center and towards 4K77’s more obvious cyan. To be fair, all the displayed shots share a common problem, which is ever-more loss of lush and distinct color. This loss appears to the eye as a “veneer” that flattens the “depth” of it’s reality.

For this demonstration, I used v2.5 as a base for the quick “corrected” shot, aimed at restoring the missing “depth” … with truly black uniforms, full-bodied flesh-toned faces, a neutral-dark detention center, light-panel buttons that actually glow, and just look at that floor – the eye eats up that depth!

  • Caveat for the corrected shot: I curve-lightened my correction to more closely match the surrounding shots’ brightness (for an apple-to-apples comparison). Such lightening somewhat reduces color strength.

I don’t know how else to say the CC is temporary, so that people would finally shut up about it. I’m generally a pretty nice guy, as I’m sure most people here could attest to, but this constant nitpicking of color grading pisses me off and makes me not want to do this any more.

Also, in your example, the people look like they fell asleep in a tanning bed, while having an infusion of carrot juice.

Hello!

Can someone please send me a PM with a ROTJ link?

Everything you need is in the first post of this thread - though you may want to check out Harmy’s Despecialized Edition thread for Return Of The Jedi too 😉

With all due respect, this “corrects” colour-grading does not look like the colour timing from Star Wars. I’m assuming you’ve never graded or supervised a colour timing session on a motion picture before? FYI, it’s a waste of time to do a comprehensive colour grading until you have mostly finished compositing work. Harmy’s colour grading is just a stand-in, and as a stand-in, it’s great. He has more than demonstrated that he knows what he is doing. This amateurish flat Photoshop job is less than useless, it’s disrespectful.
