I mean it’s pretty useless, there aren’t that many changes are there? And you’re right.

Main source is the 2020 1080p Blu-Ray with patches of schorman13’s HDTV Pres. v2 as I generally prefer the look of the newest release.

CHANGES
00:00:00 - Prequel Era Fox and Lucasfilm cards inserted as 2020 removed the “News Corperation” and added the Sequel Era Lucas card
00:33:18 - Bottom half of Jedi temple has been revised, replaced with HDTV shot and wipe
00:38:05 - Coruscant sun, more intense, now dulled slightly
00:48:28 - Kashyyyk roofs revised with moss, replaced with HDTV shot
00:53:12 - Coruscant sky is brighter in 2020, now dulled slightly
00:59:30 - Clone voices removed when they enter and attack the droid forces on Utapau, was a 2011 change thats been reverted with the HDTV audio
01:23:01 - Another Kashyyyk building roof color change
01:35:33 - Mustafar screen revised to be brighter, replaced with partial HDTV shot
01:40.26 - Brightened sqaure power window over Obi-Wan has been removed with HDTV shot
02:02:19 - Theatrical wipe restored, I mean it was restored on the 2011 BR, but it’s still of note

Thanks to none for his work on the DIF 2004 v 2011 and 2004 v 2020 of all six films which helped find some new changed that otherwise wouldn’t of been found.

I knew about the clone voices, the roofs and the wipe, but what’s the Jedi Temple change? I can’t see anything different between HDTV and the 2020 Bluray.

Couldn’t the Cinema DTS audio be used to fix the audio changes?

Yep, I was just gonna ask that too. You can probably take it wholesale from Schorman’s older theatrical reconstruction and just mux it in, assuming frame counts are the same.

I haven’t got Schorman’s own recontruction or the Cinema DTS Track, but this is synced to the HDTV version so realistically you could sync it up pretty easily.

It’s been re-rendered as the lighting is different or something to that effect. It’s unnoticable but none’s DIF tool picked it up and the Blu-Ray looks a lot lighter. Same with the lighting on Obi-Wan in some random shot

Weren’t there changes between the frame count V1 of Scholman’s HDTV (and assuming by extension Scholman’s theatrical reconstruction) and V2 of Scholman’s HDTV (which I’m assuming is the frame sync used here)?

This is so awesome. Loving the preservation attempts for the prequels recently.

Am also happy to see all these. Good thing that after the spectacular failure of the sequel trilogy, the sentiment of many regarding the prequels has changed, sometimes as much as going from pure poisonous hate towards some level of appreciation. The more reason to preserve the prequels whose biggest flaw in my eyes is that we simply cannot get them in excellent enough image quality due to the the limitations of the technology available at the time.
