I am working on a personal project to re-cut the Mr. Plinkett prequel reviews in 1080p with the blurays as the source for the movie clips. I have been using tinyeye to lookup the still images in higher resolution. I have located most of the behind the scenes videos used.
Would anyone be interested in this project? I am mainly doing this because they look so shitty on a large screen. I like to watch them with some friends sometimes and its painful.
I have been writing an avisynth script to cut this together from the various sources and matching it to be frame accurate against the youtube originals. This is probably a slow and pointlessly complicated method. I am just not that familiar with video editing software. If anyone has a suggestion then let me know.
There are a few effects shots which i plan to just export the same source material and then recreate the effects frame by frame to copy the original. Again this is just how I know I can do it well. Probably not the quickest or best method.
I am re-compositing some of the original 4x3 material to better fit 16x9. For example I reduced the number of subtitle lines to better suit the wider frame at times. I have been recreating matching title cards with the same star wars font.
Any original video(like interviews and basement) have some compression artifacts. I am trying some filters to clean that up and upscale it to the best quality possible.
I was just keeping the original youtube audio because I know nothing about sound mixing and could not improve anything. I am just looking to make an 16x9 formatted HD video track to match each review original.
The Phantom Menace Review
Attack of the Clones Review
Revenge of the Sith Review
I found the first part of the phantom menace review already remastered after already completing most of that part.
I will upload it and post a link whenever I am finished if anyone is interested. I am only partly through the phantom menace review so far. It will probably take me a bit to complete everything.
Edit: sorry if this is the wrong section. I wasn’t sure if it was proper to post here.
