This project will at some point develop into something, but not for quite a while. To be quite honest, I’d love to see if a new 4K bluray will be released. The examples here are highly conceptual, and not intended to be taken as any idea of what the final product would look like. I’m sure I could vouch for it to look better.
They look great. Its like they were out of focus and you justed focused them. Amazing. Hope you so get around to doing this.
So I’ve kinda been thinking about resurrecting this project at least for ANH after having seen Rogue One. Since these earlier tests I’ve learned more methods for color and detail recovery I’ve needed on the prequel projects, as well as the full knowledge of Davinci Resolve which I’ve found to allow me the opportunity to produce far more refined grades.
Mainly I’m thinking about doing a sort of modernized grade of the ANH Blu-ray. It would have the enhanced detail, finer grain (a grain free look is probably best not to try to achieve), and trying to emulate the more dynamic lighting style of Rogue One.
Unlike with the prequels, I feel there’s enough consistency within the transfer to make at least the ANH product something far quicker to complete.
I’ll see about putting out a clip in a few months…I’m still waiting for the Rogue One blu-ray so I have a proper source for reference.
Good to hear! This project is one that definitely interested me.
Both this and your PT project are very interesting, hope to see more soon!
