I have a question.

We See at ANH that the millenium falcon has some green lights in its interior just before the Cockpit ( I think its 4-5 in a row)

Now We see the same lights in ENB with blue.

Its an upgrade? or in the color corection will be back Green?

Thx

At the end of the Luke/Vader fight we can barely hear Vader turn off his lightsaber and it happens off screen. Ady, could you add a louder sound effect to that? Its always bugged me.

Unless the color got changed by virtue of Ady's color correction, I don't think this is worth worrying about one way or the other.  The only effort that should be put into changing them is if they're inconsistent from one shot to the next, but if they were changed on the set and are different from one whole film to the next, call it one of Han's repairs or upgrades and leave it at that.

 

My outlook on life - we’re all on the Hindenburg anyway…no point fighting over the window seat.

Adywan -  Since you confirmed recently that you would be adding a subtle 'lens flare' or two into this edit too, I seem to study every one I see on t.v. now!

Anyway, I don't expect you to give away where you will eventually put them, but I thought this particular shot with Han waving, that is the culmination of the snowspeeder search, would benefit nicely from a long thin one perhaps.  Having said that, this is a static 'fixed camera' shot, and I don't know if you only want to add 'moving' ones to 'moving camera' shots, or not. 

Just a thought, as I always wished this particular shot was enhanced by something a little, even the hint of the snowspeeder's shadow just before the 'wipe' into the next scene perhaps.

By the way, if you can catch it tonight, or record it by any chance, there is the final part of a program called 'Catastrophe' on Channel 4 at 9p.m. which has been littered with some great and varied examples of 'lens flares' throughout the run.  And it's been a very interesting program to boot.

I would nix the whole "added lens flare" thing unless it really looked good in the scene in question.  Most lens flares (short of those actually created within the camera itself -namely a lot of 1980's Dean Cundey shot films) look fake and added in and the last thing I would want is some extra FX splatted in to "enhance" a scene and stick out like a sore thumb.

While things like the green AT-AT lasers and red AT-AT cockpits would be cool, even I understand it is not necessary to add those things in, being that the movie is more than fine without them.  Even then, there would be a logical reason to add them in.  Adding garnish FX for the sake of it without having any meaning other than looks is kinda what makes the Prequels a little less.. meaningful (to be polite about it) than the original trilogy.

Take the example of Transformers (no, I really didn't like this movie), there are at least 20 flares per shots of robots (yes, I may be exaggerating :P), and it doesn't make the film better...

 how can u not like transformers? btw, ady, i know this has been a hot topic, but if u change fett's voice back to the original voice, u'd have to do the same for all the clones in episodes II n III.

Off-topic sorry: I didn't like Transformers because I didn't like the story, and it's too patriotic (in France we don't see patriotism this way :D).

And to come back to the flares, I don't know if it's useful to add some without any reason.

My problem with Transformers is that it gets to be too much at times. Too over the top, especially in the big battle at the end. I was sitting in the theater thinking 'enough already!', especially at that shot of the guy sliding on the ground shooting up at one of the decepticons. Ridiculous.

As for the lens flares...meh. I know that whatever Ady adds, it'll be tasteful, but I don't really care one way or the other. Maybe if we saw a sample, he could change some minds.

Well, patriotism isn't bad as long as there's something honest about it.  I dig INDEPENDENCE DAY and GLORY, one for being a straight-up 50's sci-fi movie and 70's disaster movie and the other for a more serious look at what patriotism truly is.  TRANSFORMERS is just too 5-year-old for me, and that's coming from someone who loves the animated 1986 TRANSFORMERS movie (which at least had scope!  I mean, how can you NOT like a movie that starts off with a planet-sized robot eating another planet for breakfast!).

Now Frank Capra?  THAT is some major patriotic syrup...

BTW, the UK TRANSFORMERS blu-ray (the 1986 animated film) is region free and looks EXCELLENT!

There are some other mistakes reported in the other pictures, but I don't think all of them should be fixed, depends on the ones (for instance, Luke's sabre buried differently between two shots, is this that bad? No, but Chewie rubber sole breaks the illusion of him being a real alien).

He's not a real alien?! ;) Reminds me of on the television series The Incredible Hulk. You could often see the rubber soles under Lou Ferrigno's feet in running scenes. They did a decent job of hiding them, but at times, they were plain as day.

No, not really.  There's no reason to think that Boba in ESB isn't using some sort of voice filter a la Leia in RotJ.

I'd prefer that Boba's voice in ESB returned to the original and that Jango's voice in the PT stay the way it is.

I know that some people will say that Jango's voice should just go period, but I'd like it to stay because Jango is a completely different character from Boba with different motivations and outlooks on life, and the voice helps further that idea.  Plus Jango, like Boba, is a badass.  Over at Spill.com as part of the Let's Do This podcast, Co-Host 3000 was talking about the Boba's voice issue.  He said something to the effect of...

"Yeah, he didn't have many lines in that movie, but the ones he had were memorable lines because they were spoken by a badass.  The lines were not what made Boba Fett in that movie, it was the voice"

So I feel that, just like it was the voice and not the dialogue that made Boba memorable in ESB, it's the voice and not the dialogue that makes Jango memorable in the PT (I say PT and not AotC because I'm including the clone troopers).

 my bad.

and i can stand for just bobba's voice being changed and jangos remaing, it just seems weird that when bobba fett is an unaltered clone, keyword clone,   that is voice would be different.

Just because you're a clone doesn't mean you have the same voice. A clone of someone raised in another country will speak a different language with a different accent, thereby changing their vocal pattern, despite being an exact copy of a person on the other side of the world...

I've seen some of the color correction split screen comparisons on youtube. If anything those are great to point out just how bad the 2004 transfers were. I don't know if those are the final look or still in progress but there are a few cases where I think the part of the shot should stay blue.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTp8mKFxmbg&feature=related

In the Milennium Falcon. There's a bright wide light in the cockpit. One example is at 50 seconds above Leia's head. I'm pretty sure that's part is blue even on the gout.

Some of the exterior shots of the walkers. The sky looks like it loses too much of the blue hue with the color correction. This occurs at 29 37 49 & 53 seconds. Now I saw another comparison uploaded about 3 months later in October called Hoth Split Screen. It seems to be the same part but with different color correction. The sky appears to maintain it's proper blue color in this sample.

Take back the trilogy. Execute Order '77
