Info Wanted: Star Wars - 4K77 v1.4 [DNR] With Color Grading Available?

Wondering why we have Star Wars: 4K77 v1.4 [No-DNR] with color grading by Sanjuro_61 but not a version with DNR.

Its a shame as the high contrast found in the only DNR version about (4K77 v1.0 [1080p] [DNR]) works well while on Tatooine with the twin suns kind of explaining the alien planet like brightness but once off the planet the blinding contrast really messes up the rest of the film.

Why did Team Negative One make the DNR version with such high contrast levels 🤔

The unfortunate reality of the Star Wars prequel and Disney trilogies is that they will always be around. Forever. They will never go away. It can never be undone.

I also prefer to be referred to as “TNT”, not “Freezing”.

Thanks FreezingTNT2,
But I think your refering to Star Wars: 4K77 v1.0 [1080p] [DNR] without Sanjuro_61 color grade which is the one I reference here. Was there a 4K77 DNR version which tackles the overblown contrast levels ?

Version 1.0 is a faithful rendering of the Technicolor print. The other version have tried to tone down the flaws in the original Technicolor.

It’s because the v1.0 DNR version is basically an entirely different “fork” from the v1.0 No-DNR version with an entirely different base color grading, so any color corrections which are done to one of them can’t be applied to the other.

If Williarob pops in here, he can explain better than I, since he’s the one who did v1.0 DNR in the first place.

There is a new version in the works which uses DrDre’s new reel-by-reel color grading that should finally give us a new DNR version and bring DNR and no-DNR into parity so future updates to one can be applied to the other, like 4K83.

Thanks ChainsawAsh thats the kind of info I was looking for, good to hear a color grade DNR is a future posability still as I find the DNR is done perfectly in ANH Tattoines sandy landscapes were far too grainy 😄 with non-DNR.

So DrDre’s color grading technique is the way forward it sounds like, look forward to seeing it at some point.
