It was proven by the most scrupulous of nerds that the GOUT original crawl is, in fact, the original 1977 crawl and not a digital recreation. Given that, I took a screen of the blank HD star-field from the broadcast source, put the GOUT crawl over the starfield, luma-keyed out the black space on the GOUT, chroma-keyed out the white stars, and boosted the red and green on the remaining matte to give that yellow/golden color we're all used to. The Star Wars logo you see receding in the back is from the Spanish language angle on the 2004 DVD, which does recede at the correct speed. The results I'm getting are pretty good, though in motion stair-casing develops as the matte starts to recede into the back, and I should probably try to bring out more stars in the back, but overall good progress.
Well most of the shots are done before and after the Death Star sequence. Battle of Yavin is done, Tatooine, Tantive, Mos Eisley, and most all the other sequences are done. I've even done some cool things with the Alderaan/Death Star explosions, luma-keying and chroma keying out the space from the GOUT, leaving just a matte of the explosion that I put on the HD star-fields which hopefully will look rather nice. I need to carefully run through and manually color correct this thing still (getting better and better at this).
Right now I'm just wondering how many sound-mix projects have been synced to the GOUT. I edited my project to sync frame by frame to the GOUT, so I'm looking for every audio mix I can shove onto the disc. Does anyone know a comprehensive list? I know the wonderful restored mono mix syncs to the GOUT, and the several projects that have come from both Belbucus and Molly (though where these may be obtainethed is a mystery
). If anyone knows/has, it'd be a great help.
