I’m not the first person to attempt this, but I wanted to try my own hand at these while I’ve also been working on some other LaserDiscs.
I am capturing on a true classic player, a CLD-91 that I found new in box summer of 2019. Doing a basic hardware upscale to 1080p60 and then post-processing on the PC. My results so far have been impressive in my opinion. I will be tinkering with my settings and continuing to improve on the releases and will make note of what I deem to be the “final” draft. In the meantime “rough” drafts will be made available.
I will be completing the entire original trilogy. I will also be including the exclusive bonus feature interview with George Lucas that was available on these discs, also in 1080p.
Version 1.1 of Star Wars (Episode 4) is now available.
