Very cool, I love seeing how the tauntaun sausage gets made! I never thought about how the beginning of the reel would get affected. Thanks for the update!

Great stuff, though in future videos it would be great if you could make the screen you’re focusing talking about the one that shows up larger, you’d say “you can see here” about various small details on the left screen, but there’s no way we can. Anyway, this video is fine as is, just a request for the future. Thanks for everything, and really glade to see this sort of progress and revitalized attention to the project!

If I was working on one monitor, the image part would be just as small, if not smaller. I had to make the monitor with the interface and the task-sheet larger, to make the text readable.

Perhaps I’m just not following your setup, I assumed you probably have two (similarly sized?) 4K monitors side by side you work on. I just meant while you’re talking about what is happening more in the left screen, such as visible differences between sources or various levels of filtered content, it would be nice to make that the larger of the two for those moments. Assuming that the sizes of the individual screens in your video was a conscious choice, rather than an inherent workspace recording limitation as you might get if this is a 1080p monitor next to a 4K monitor, or that whatever you used to record or put together these two screens didn’t force you to choose a dominant one for the duration.

Will Audrey Tautou appear in Despecialized 3.0 ? Sounds great ! 😃

I actually saw Audrey Tautou in real life once and she is teeny tiny. I would say like 5 feet (1m50) kinda tiny.

Right back to Despecialized! Hey Harmy, it’s my birthday next month - you think you could be finished with 3.0 by then for the whole trilogy?

Harmy, I would love you releasing for one of my non-anniversaries a 5 Gb 4K version of SW with the Jabba scene but Jabba being replaced by a giant garden gnome. Thanks for your work !

That honestly sounds really adorable.
Nice experience.

And I’ve loved every pixel of it.

Here’s part two of my last video, this time introducing how Nuke will be used in my new v3.0 workflow.😃
I listened to the complaints from the last one and made this one on one monitor, so you guys can better see what’s going on 😃

These are really neat to see. Thanks for doing them!

Very cool. I see some of the elements are moving with respect to each other. I wonder if it’s because you are applying the same stabilization to all 3 (raw, mild, and heavy noise reduced). If you think about it, the heavily noise reduced copy is already more stable just from the noise reduction. Using its motion vectors to stabilize the raw may not be appropriate. Maybe try stabilizing them with the same anchor points, but separately?

I was actually trying to preserve the movement of the elements in relation to each other, since that was always there.

Oh, I see that now, it’s that way in the original! My mistake, sorry.

Is version 3 going to be created using scans of 35mm prints? Or is it derived from the official blu-ray like previous versions?

This project will always have a blu-ray (or highest quality available) backbone.

Ah. So version 3 will have fairly similar colour timing to the previous versions?

The color will be redone as far as I understand. But it will be similar in the sense that it will won’t look like the blu-ray.

The color timing is not directly related to the primary source material. i.e. the Blu-ray could be used for the highest-quality image, but it is always retimed to approximate the color of a 35mm print. The Blu-ray hasn’t changed, but the available color references and tools used to match colors have changed quite a bit, at least since the latest release of Star Wars. Star Wars is probably in for the biggest color changes, Jedi is probably not likely to see much color change at all.

From memory DE3 will be using Neverar’s beautiful color treatment as the base.

For Star Wars, yes. I will make some adjustments to it (I think he left some scenes a tad too dark) but mostly it will stay as is in Neverar’s version.
For ESB and Jedi, I will be starting from scratch but I will probably be sticking to similar CC as the previous versions.

I just want to voice my appreciation in how willing to answer and how responsive you are to our questions, with how busy you are. Especially after watching your videos. I couldn’t imagine juggling all that work. So thanks again.

This is really cool to hear 😃

Quite an interesting workflow. Reminds me of some other software out there for completely unrelated tasks (process automation). Makes sense to see such concepts applied in this realm of working with video. Kind of wild to see it in action. Looks like it will take a lot of time to work through each scene, and then work on rendering so many pieces.
