Need help from someone with source matching expertise.


Hi everyone,

Please don’t ban me or delete this thread! I realize that this forum is dedicated to restoring the original trilogy but I feel that I have exhausted other options and could desperately use your help! Please mods, I beg you to make an exception in this case and allow this thread to exist.

I form part of two-man restoration project that requires, among other things, matching multiple sources of differing visual quality. This project began in May 2016, has never been attempted before and carries with it a certain degree of historical significance. I would strongly urge you to read this post for more information:

Until some months ago our team included a third member - an Avisynth plugin developer who was helping me with writing a script to match sources as best he could - but it has since become apparent that we cannot rely on him. As such, the project has been at a standstill for nearly 6 months. Therefore I am reaching out to all of you for help. I have watched in amazement at how well the despecialized editions seamlessly blend scenes/shots from the blu-ray release with others from the laserdisc and would like to know if any of you could please get me in contact with, or possess similar skills to, the person that was primarily responsible for this amazing work.

I realize that animation is significantly different to live action and that many of the skills that are applicable to live action do not transfer over directly to animation. Nevertheless, if you feel that you can help, we would like to hear from you. I make no attempt to hide the fact that we are are desperate, so please get in contact with me either through this thread, private message or the email provided at the link.

Thank you.
