Iv been working on this for quite sometime now, this is one of the deleted scenes from Star Wars IV A new hope… To clean up this footage I exported the Video in to images, took them in Lightroom, did what i could in there and then over to after effects using various Scratch and dust removal effects and a lot of Roto scoping, Theres still a lot to do, its not 100 percent clean yet but its what Iv done so far

Edit: I forgot to add that this will available for anyone to download once it’s finished, that’s if you want to make your own edits etc or whatever just give me credit that’s all 😃

Also…touché?

Good job, it’s really good. Neverargreat, what do you mean when you say he “George lucased it? The colors look fine to me…

I decided to add a signature

He means I added a lot of extra stuff like houses etc

Restoration - great.
Adding the buildings is in my opinion similar to Greedo shooting first. Why would the moisture vaporators be between houses? That defeats their whole purpose

I feel like John … amazed, but at the same time annoyed.

I must admit that, even if you Lucasized it, it will blend quite well with the Blu-ray; but agree that those houses should not be there!

But you did a very good job, kudos! Hope to see also the other scenes restored - not too much Lucasized, though! 😉

If you will do a new version without houses - added clouds are OK to me - I’ll use it for my (future planned but always delayed) Star Wars Extended Edition.

Once it’s completed, I mean all Roto corrected, it will be very easy to remove all the Extra stuff as there on different layers, so I’ll make 2 versions, one with all the extras and one without… That should be fine for anyone wanting to use it… 😃

If you plan to do some CGI stuff, can you replace the “sparks” with something which would at least slightly look like 2 space ships shooting at each other? If you indeed plan to do 2 different versions…

What everyone else said: Excellent cleanup, but didn’t need the extra stuff. 😃 Looking forward to a clean, unenhanced, version!

Oh good. That’s what people actually want.

Now that I’ve looked a little more carefully, I see that huge amounts of the frame were replaced (most of the sky, ground, etc). Presumably that makes it much easier to clean, when only a few objects on screen are carried over from the original (though they do generally look good). Handy for avoiding the enormous tramline scratches and such, but it has me managing my expectations for what can be done with purely the original frames!

Actually I have the version with no elements just raw footage cleaned up, not as clean as this but it’s like 90 percent cleaner than the original as thats as far as i could with the raw footage, it only then that I decided to go with the method that you see now, the first stage of clean took a very long time

That’s very impressive!

Brilliant work! I’m guessing you roto’d Luke and Treadwell…cleaned them up…then entirely recreated the background?
