Ady, random question. How much of ANH:R is going to be Native 1080p, or is there some upscaling required (I.E. from Topaz)?
Adywan posted this on the Revisited Facebook page two days ago:
“For the past couple of weeks I basically locked myself away and worked solidly transferring all the work I did for the 720p HD version over to the 1080p footage. Many shots have been pretty straight forward, just altering the composition resolution and replacing the 720p footage with the native 1080p footage and adjusting any effects to the new, higher resolution. Not all shots are as easy as this though, so quite a few are having to be done from scratch. But shutting myself off from the net for a couple of weeks worked wonders, and I can now inform you that I have already completed the first 56 minutes of the movie. This doesn’t mean, however, that this will be finished any time soon. I had completed about ¾ of the film in 720p but the remaining ¼ was shots that require a hell of a lot of FX work, rotoscoping etc. I should be able to post a short 1080p clip this coming week sometime.”
EDIT: I just realized this doesn’t quite answer your question. But, unless I’m wrong, it sounds like so far there’s been no upscaling per se, but maybe there will be some in the remaining one-fourth of the film Adywan has left to do.
