STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 REVISITED ADYWAN *720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION — Page 435

Author

I was watching Harmy’s Despecialized Star Wars, and noticed how much Luke and Leia’s echo in the chasm really boomed with the surround sound. I usually watch Revisted, as that is my definitive version of the film, and didn’t remember that. Comparing the echo to both Despecialized and Silver Screen editions, it seems Revisited’s echo is hushed. Was that a deliberate choice, or something that can be reevaluated with the 720p edit?

Each official audio mix does the echo in the chasm very differently, too. Adywan’s is a heavily modified version of the 2004 DVD mix, so it’s likely that the echo in Revisited is similar to that.

The original mixes (especially the mono mix) had more of an exaggerated echo effect, while the 1997/2004/2011 mixes have more of a natural effect, to my memory. But I could be mistaken, and Ady might have actually taken the echo effects from a different mix that the 2004. I’d have to compare all the different mixes to be sure which his is closest to.

I would love to see Adywan’s color corrected ANH; loved his ESB one! Can I trouble someone for PM of the link?
Cheers!

the echo was exaggerated, but it sounded great coming out of the rear speakers.

No. Just no. We’re not starting this again.

ESB:R took eight years. Be patient, people. There is no estimated release date and there will not be one. It will take as long as it needs to take.

Stop asking.

(This is directed to all past, present, and future questions about time frames, not just you. You just had the misfortune of being the first one to ask in a while.)

It’s okay, I didn’t mean to jump down your throat. It’s just that over the years, constant questions about when Adywan will be finished have worn on both him and his supporters. Just don’t make a habit of it is all - Ady will give us updates when there are updates to give! 😃

I used the 2004 mix as a basis. The echo effect was altered a few times in previous mixes and they went with a more natural one for the SE. I won’t be altering that for the HD version as i will be using the DTS 6.1 track from the blu-rays

There is zero chance any of them will be finished this year or even possibly next.

That sucks but I understand rome wasn’t build in a day and all that keep up the excellent work Adywan.

I saw several of the ANH Regraded files on Usenet are apparently incomplete, and I don’t think I can get the full thing on Usenet. Is there anyone who does have the full version and can share it with me via PM?

Here are some screenshot comparisons showing the differences between the ANH color regrade and the previous ANH:R version. The shots shown from ANH:R are of ones that don’t have effects done besides CC.

I’ll be posting more of these soon.

Read an older post, are you getting rid of the shot with the numerous Tie Fighters swooping in? I hope not, I think that’s a great addition. I like that this edit is the definitive Special Edition. If someone doesn’t like the enhanced FX, they have the Despecialized edits.

To not spoil the Regrade for those who haven’t seen it, I’ll only be posting images from the shots that adywan had already posted images from.

The quality loss is huge 😕

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.

On mouseover it’s the original (from a decade ago). The loss is going from the new one to the old one.
