While I’d say it is possible to remove the Ronto and keep other elements, like the shadow under the landspeeder, I don’t think that’s the best way to go about it. The problem with the SE landspeeder shadow is that to do it, they cut off the bottom half of the landspeeder. It just doesn’t look right. It’d be better, in my humble opinion, to roto out the landspeeder entirely and then reinsert it to have more stable movement and a new shadow beneath it that doesn’t rely on cutting off parts of the speeder to begin with.

I had watched ANH:R last week, and today watched the new regrade. Massive improvement over the original revisited’s colors. The skin tones are perfection in most of the movie. I really believe this is the best the blu-ray source can look.

But while I love the grade, I can’t help but think 4K77 would be a better primary source. There’s still that low bit depth, what looks like large radius sharpening (not sure what the proper term is for what I’m seeing), and what looks to be low resolution color channels in certain sections on the outdated Lowry master. I was recently looking at Skymaster’s technicolor edition over on the starwarstrilogy forum to see what someone can really get out of 4K77, and it looks tremendously better than anything that could be sourced from the blu-ray. It’s shocking how clean the edges look and the very low noise. The colors look smooth as heck.

Your colors are on point in the new regrade, but there’s still that awful “Lowry master” look to it, that I don’t think we should have to deal with anymore given the availability of 4K77.

I think the bluray source is being kept to keep a constant look for the Revisited trilogy.
Empire Revisited has the crushed blacks and the BD resolution.
If Star Wars looked way better than Empire and Jedi, it would be jarring.

(JEDIT: I think Ady’s using 4K83 for most of Jedi, but that’s because the bluray is much worse than SW and ESB.)

Is that determined by dog years or human years?

What a grand and intoxicating innocence. How could you be so naive? There is no escape. Come, lay down your weapons. It is not too late for my mercy.

Hey everyone. Can somebody please help me find the Xvid version of ANH:R? I’ve failed for days to find it and am losing hope…
It’s the only version that correctly has Ponda Baba’s arm severed. I don’t know why Adywan changed that one. If someone could help me I would be so grateful.

It was changed for 2 reasons.

  1. Ponda had hoof/ flipper like hands. You can see this clearly in the Cantina. So none of them hand the furry hands

  2. Ponda doesn’t even go to draw his weapon at the moment Obi-Wan strikes. the ONLY one to draw their weapon was Dr Evazan. So it should be Evazan’s severed arm on the floor

Right! What I’m asking is, what was wrong with your flipper edit? Though what you point out does make sense. That scene does play out strangely. Thanks for doing what you do, friend. I’m dying to get my hands on ANH:R HD.

Like Ady said, in this picture Ponda hasn’t even flinched, let alone grabbed a gun with his… suction cup somehow? So it turns out that adding the flipper just asks more questions than it answers.

Rogue One attempted to fix this continuity error by giving ponda a similar arm to the severed one shown in the Jedha scene.

Ady, I wonder if thats a change worth implementing in ANHR:HD? To change ponda’s hands BEFORE the arm is severed to match as opposed to changing the arm on the ground.

Would provide better continuity with Rogue One as well.

I’d rather cut the cameo out of Rogue One myself.

Agreed. Ady’s approach is the best approach in my opinion logically on what happens during that scene anyway.

Definitely cool with that. Just occurred to me that it was an option.
