Also wondering… was any video ever released of the royal guards crossing staves in front of Vader? It mirrors/adds foreshadowing to the shot of the Gamorreans barring Luke’s entry. It’s been so many years, I can’t recall where I saw/read about that.

Isn’t that from the deleted scene where Darth Vader almost strangles Moff Jerjerrod?

correct

Ah, shoot. I had thought there was a shot of them crossing the pikes as Vader is about to exit the elevator. My mistake. Thank you for clarifying.

I am working with Benduwan to colorize and composite the extended dialogue sequence for Han and Lando (Return of the Jedi)

Attached is a frame from the original footage, and my color correction/composite.

Altered some of the color palettes, I think this is better. Now that I have my process down I will start going through the rest of the frames.

Once all isolation, colorization and compositing is finished, I will render out a video file.

i don´t know if Dr. Dre´s color correction LUT tool helps…

Are these deleted scenes available somewhere? Can I get links to these? I pm’d the OP but no response…

Will the database be updated with the outtakes from the two 40th anniversary EMPIRE featurettes?

Good Evening All,

I am still individually colorizing the frames for the extended “hangar scene” from return of the jedi. There is some color bleed and missing color in some spots, but this is a work in progress that will take some time. This is what I have so far.

Once I am done coloring and cleaning all the frames as best possible, I will composite the millennium falcon matte painting behind the actors and add a little grain to somewhat blend it all together, and then render out a final video clip.

Benduwan is putting an together an extended cut of ROTJ. This will be my first real contribution to this project.
Comments and critique are welcomed.

UPDATE:

Ok, so far I have the first take colorized for the most part. Still have to figure out what I am going to do with the two crewman walking across the background, and eventually I will composite in the matte painting of the falcon.

I have uploaded a newer test of the colorized footage which leads into the next take which is a close up scene with Lando, Chewie, Luke and Leia. My next step is to make the color palettes for all the bits in this scene and then get to colorizing the frames.

This scene is quite a bit longer, and has a lot more shades/detail to it, so it will take a bit more time then the first take. At least I don’t have to composite on this one.

So far so good, and I am having a blast working on this!

Does anyone know what the total runtime of all ROTS deleted scenes are? I heard somewhere that the rough cut was 4 hours long. I’m curous abut how much of that has been released.

Update…again.

Ok, I think I have my color palettes about right for this scene so far, I still haven’t developed the palettes for Luke and Leia yet though.

At any rate, here is a single colorized frame from the next take. My apologies up front if Lando’s skin tone isn’t spot on. Video tape gamma is a pain to toy with, and I have been back and forth teetering on his skin tone being either too red or to yellow.

Newest update!

First of all, happy May the 4th (late).

Attached is a link to what I have done so far which is:

  • Colorized first scene (mid shot interior conversation with Han and Lando)

-Beginning of the frame isolation and matte composite of the first scene which won’t be finished for a bit.

Scene cuts to close up of Lando and Chewie embracing. (I am going back and forth between the above work and colorizing the frames for this second scene).

As always, comments and critique are very welcome.

you do a really good job with colorized.
but it would better to upload a higher quality file.
it´s hard to make suggestion with the low quality.
i think if the scene will be complete,they will be look very nice.
thanks for making this.

This is looking nice! What software are you using to colorize with?

This, to me, is probably the best deleted/extended/alternate/whatever scene in all of the ROTJ material we’ve seen.

Thank you for the kind comment.

I am using Adobe Photoshop where I adjust all the white/black reference points, and then I create custom color pallets for individual items (i.e. "lando skin tone, chewie fur, Han skin tone, etc, and then I simply paint it all in. I stack the frames in my video editing software (cyberlink powerdirector), and add a grain filter which helps hides some of the banding and macroblocking artifacts from the source.

Thankfully, there are TONS of reference images out there for me to develop my color pallets from, although some I had to wing a bit.

Benduwan,

I render out to 1280 x 720 (24fps). I think when I upload it to imgur, it compresses it down a bit… I am not sure at this time how else to deliver the video for viewing. I could drop it on youtube I suppose and just put the link on here…

Suggestions?

(edit) I think maybe my grain filter may be a bit TOO heavy as well. Once the project is complete, I will render out a final version with and without grain for all to use as needed.
