Does anyone know if a good 1080p 60fps (deinterlaced) upscale of the EditDroid version is available anywhere?
A good BD compatible h264 encode like this one would be great: https://youtu.be/KxtSX1lg8rE

I’d sure like to know who did that upscale and YouTube upload, to get hold of the source. It really does a great thing for the material.

Also: happy belated Life Day! We may not thrive, friends, but we survive, friends.

The first time I watched the WHIO version, it was 60fps like that. It actually made me a little nauseous.

It might have been because I had installed a 60fps plugin on the computer and forgot about it, but it literally hasn’t worked on any other video I’ve watched.

Well, sounds like we could have the best preservation of part of the Holiday Special yet: apparently the cartoon is coming to Disney+…

The Ewok movies, Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars, and part of the Holiday Special are coming to Disney Plus

If they actually HD scanned the original film elements for the animation (and they were the only part of the Holiday Special that was shot on film), then we could be in for a real treat here!

I noticed this quite by accident – YouTube knows my preferences a bit too well – and Team Coco put it up on Life Day 2020.

It’s the best quality of the interaction between him and Harrison Ford that I’ve ever seen!
