It’ll be unfortunate if this print goes. The bid just had to go up, didn’t it! 😉

Like I said when the print was first mentioned, these are the times I wish I had money to spend. 😄

Army of Darkness: The Medieval Deadit | The Terminator - Color Regrade | The Wrong Trousers - Audio Preservation
SONIC RACES THROUGH THE GREEN FIELDS.
THE SUN RACES THROUGH A BLUE SKY FILLED WITH WHITE CLOUDS.
THE WAYS OF HIS HEART ARE MUCH LIKE THE SUN. SONIC RUNS AND RESTS; THE SUN RISES AND SETS.
DON’T GIVE UP ON THE SUN. DON’T MAKE THE SUN LAUGH AT YOU.

I suppose we could all chip in a bit.

Well, if we do try to collaborate a purchase, I could only pitch in 10 bucks, but I guess everything helps with this kind of thing.

Interesting how golden the scene in Donovan’s apartment is. I remember it much colder from the Blu-ray.

I’ve always wondered. Does anyone know why bluray/official releases always seem to have such a flat tone to the image - as if to mimic the monotone digital grading of recent Hollywood movies?

Never understood why, with many great films that have have such iconic imagery, someone goes to the trouble and cost of remastering the negative only to suck the life out of it. I’ve got loads of DVD and HDTV broadcast movies struck from older prints that beat the Bluray most of the time.

And for the life of me I really would like to know why they change the colour palette so noticably. Raiders, Star Wars trilogy, Lord of the Rings etc…

You just answered your own question.

Greetings,
Can someone kindly let me know where I can obtain this 35mm print of Raiders. Either digital download or paid download site, other than Spleen which seems not to be accepting any new members. Really want to add this to my 35mm downloads, which I do prefer to Blu.

I wish someone would remaster all three indy classic films color corrected 4k etc.

That looks great! All it needs now is some selective saturation and a curves adjustment:

Yes yes 😃

Hey, that looks amazing! We’ve been having some discussion, because the Raiders scan I’ve been using has some color balancing issues (litemkr said a number of scenes were green shifted), leading to many shots having a magenta shift, caused by a slight over correction. I was thinking of putting the regrade on hold until we can figure out what the color balance should be (litemkr is looking for a 16mm reference print for projection). However, this scan is looking pretty sweet, and the print looks to be in excellent condition…😃

The first pic from the temple looks good, but its a bit off color wise in the second and third frames (not surprising since he said it wasn’t corrected and a lot depends on the settings for the capture), but seems in good shape. Certainly better than most prints I have seen.

I’d definitely like to know a lot more. What is the origin of this print? Is it from the original run? Is the entire print scanned and in what format/quality? It would be great to replace the damaged second reel and missing bits from our scan.

This film copy has a single problem. It’s a combined copy. 2 in 1. When you play at the projector on a large screen, everything is fine, but as you scan it, there are differences. It’s a shame but the copy is in good shape. Sorry my english but I use google translator 😦

It is very hard to get an accurate representation of a theatrical print in HD video because of color space and dynamic range limitations. HD video simply doesn’t have the range, so a lot of tweaking must be done to squeeze the range in. HDR video goes a long way towards getting us much closer, but it is a ways off from widespread adoption (if it ever is).

Can you tell me any more about the scan? Was it done in RAW format? Do you have any video samples?

I do not have video sample yet. First I need to scan all 6 reels and then make a video sample. It was scanned in RAW.

Getting The Last Crusade is already taken care of. Temple of Doom isn’t hard to find either.

Sometime in the future they will show up.

Got a trailer of Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull scanned.
At some point will be trying to get that movie to be scanned also.

Is there any need to get Crystal Skull scanned? Do the prints look any differnt than the blu-ray? It was color graded digitally, I doubt there is much, if any, difference.
