UPDATES

  • New “Bail Organa” uploaded, links updated; feedbacks are welcome!

Good results on that Bail Organa scene and also the extended Dooku scene from the PS2 game. Technically, the compositing on the former’s quite nice considering the source. Audio work is also seamless and doesn’t sound rough in the slightest.

Really, it’s funny to see someone other than Jimmy Smits in the role! 😃

  • Added also Rogue One to list of extended editions

For this, hopefully, you won’t need to deal with time-coded deleted scenes again. But, I guess that’s supposing we get any deleted scenes at all.

In any case, as you’ve noticed, a lot of alternate shots are out there already and worthy of integration.

Thanks a lot! Yep, so many shots for Rogue One, sadly so short that it will be hard to put them back… we’ll see!

For now, I’m working on some sort of automated colorization script, but nothing works well… I wonder if someone has recolored any of the b&w scenes, even in low resolution!

A LOT rough, but I made this just to know how good could be the recolorization process, using just few cclored frames and repeat them for static parts, and create interpolated ones for moving parts; if you think this result is achieved with just 7 colored frames on 237, it is quite good! Probably, to have a very good result, a frame every 10 (or probably less) is needed - hope to NOT be forced to recolor every single frame…

Only color correction test - nothing else, no cleaning as you can clearly see!

Feedbacks are needed as usual.

uuuuuuhhhhhh…that looks bad. no offence to your work,but the colors jumping around…
you should find pics from deleted scenes for reference.

Of course they look bad! The colors jump around because, as I have written, only 7 recolored frames are used to recolor 237 ones… so, taking this in account, result is not that bad at all. Never say it’s perfect, and it never will, because I use an automatic colorizer software. And I’m not technically savvy to recolor a frame by hand, nor I have the time and patience to do that (if I was able to) to do that… recolor by hand literally thousand frames for just a few second long scene will take months, full time, years maybe part time. And, with my luck, the day before I’ll finish, the original colored scene will show up somehow, granted! 😄

Of course, again, if someone could, and would, recolor the b&w scenes, by hand, by an automated software, by black magic, he/she is welcome!

TMBTM did something interesting with that deleted scene in particular for his War of the Stars II edit, having a very bold red and blue colorization. Could you possibly look at that?

Author

I watched it, and its solution is not that bad at all; but I would try to colourize it instead. And, if it does not work really well, add something like the red alarm he added in a Tantive scene, to mask the recolor, but leaving it behind somehow. What do you think?

Russian Despecialized Extended editions: they simply cut&paste (sometimes badly) deleted scenes, untouched, into the Despecialized edition… no color correction, no cleaning, no music added, nothing… there are better versions around, like the previous mentioned Wae Of The Star I and II - I may say that I do not agree with some chosen shots and music tracks, but overall they are fantastic edits!

Thanks to everyone; any advice is appreciated!

Updates:

  • DVD extended scene 4 “The Air Taxi sequence” was actually inserted in the DVD (HDTV/BD) and so I thought it’s useless, BUT… there are few seconds more at the end… what if I take the following shot from LD (which is the non-faded version of the one found on DVD etc.) and attach it at the end? I will “gain” two or three seconds… not much, but, following the mission of this project, it could work! Test clip (download link will expire on 2017-01-27): https://fs11n1.sendspace.com/dl/aabdea1c995e1d05c6e17682b5498ff0/583d3201350ad49d/0ba6c8/EP1_deleted_scene_04_.mkv - just a rough cut, LD is just simply upscaled and not cleaned at all, done just to see if it could work; it seems so! ** OPINIONS, OPINIONS! **
  • now I have an LD shot, unused, that was on the theatrical cut only; OK, only 4 seconds included the wipe, but it’s still a nice shot: https://fs13n5.sendspace.com/dl/dde5773428c32938c9bf74dd74c5d067/583d3add08fc454d/laoqe3/EP1_LD_shot4.avi (download link will expire on 2017-01-27) - rough, first part of the wipe could obviously be replaced with the needed one; music missing. ** SHOULD I PUT IN THIS, TOO? **
  • first post updated with these, and previous, clips and info

put in,put in,all what you find.
i like to see all of the missing scenes.i don´t care the quality.
thanks

I agree with benduwan here. Ding get so picky about the colorization. Doesn’t have to be perfect. I just want to see super extended editions of these movies. Thanks for working on this, Andreas.

Can I ask about the technique used for the colorization? Looks bad, but still much better than anything I’ve seen before

good Effort.

If you get a result like that from 7 frames yeah I think you know the answer you need to spread those colored frames across the footage.

You could easily get away with simply masking off the Tank and coloring that and treat the rest of the shot separate for Luke.

For any shots from Han Leia and the droids you would have to do them without any cheating. I would imagine C3-P0 would be well difficult to do!!!

Thanks guys!

First a brief preamble: it is NOT possible to restore perfect colors from a black and white image (or video). Period.

Said that, and as I’ve written before, I’m not going to colorize by hand thousand frames (this is the only way to achieve a great, almost perfect result). So first I used the only avisynth filter that tries to guess how to colorize a b&w picture; it’s a nice filter, but, as this is a simple one, that could rely solely on its own, results are usually quite bad. (this doesn’t mean I don’t like the filter, at the contrary; and the author did a good job, you know that…)

The only other logical way IMHO is to use neural network; here results are better, but dependent on many factors; I used one of the websites that offer this service for free; unfortunately, I have first to export each frame as a picture, then load it in the website one by one, by hand, wait for the conversion, save the colorized one, rescale at the proper size, and use it as a chroma plane. Now you know why I wanted to make a test clip first, using just few frames as reference…

I guess if there is some software (now available) that accepts a b&w picture, and a color picture for reference, and tries to recolor the b&w following the reference… I don’t think so…

About quality: I’m aware that’s pretty bad, but you have to trust me that this result is the LESS WORSE… all the others were so ugly in comparison, so now you can understand a bit better.

So, this is one of the options we have for the b&w scenes. I wrote about those before, but I’ll refrain them again here:

  1. leave it untouched, in b&w - don’t like this option at all
  2. recolor by hand, good to perfect results - the best, but, until some volunteer wanted to make the job, it could not be considered
  3. recolor by automatic software, bad to decent results, like the following one, used for the test - at the moment, I think it’s the best option, a right compromise
  4. a “trick” like the one used by TMBTM in his War of the Stars II - where the frames have big shades of one or two colors - of which the following is the best one - I can see the point of his choice, and it worked pretty well in a way; still prefer less-than-perfect recolors, though!
  5. other ways like simulation of Biocolor or KinemaColor is out of question…
  6. do further options exist? If so, please let me know!

The fact is, there are many edits around with the b&w scenes inserted untouched (AFAIK all not even cleaned); the only attempt at recolor them is TMBTM’s edit; yes, better than the b&w version, but still not what I aim to.

At the end, until a crazy fan would step in and declares that he/she could recolor them by hand, or using a NASA-kind of supercomputer that will guess almost perfectly the colors, or some sort of miracles, I guess the less of the evil is to continue with the path of automatic colorization.

Last words: pick all the deleted scenes, shots, outtakes and so on, and throw them in the films as they are is quite easy. But it’s not what I’d like to achieve. A perfecly inserted version with all the shots cleaned as film? An impossible task for fan users like us. The right compromise, that’s what I would like to obtain. Is restored blue screen shot like “Bail Organa” perfect? Nope. But is good enough to be used. Is the Dooku extended duel (a mere 3 second shot) perfect? Far from it! But it’s the best version available, so it’s OK. Are those colorized scene perfect? Of course not. But should work better than an out-of-place b&w version. Again, everything IMHO.

Ideas, opinions, critics?

UPDATES

  • EP1 “Bail Organa” deleted scene restored, the link (https://vimeo.com/198253552) added to the first post
  • I would like to use some shots from War of the Stars I & II, taken from several different sources not reviewed here

I should point out this isn’t Bail Organa but is Bail Antilles. He mentioned as anther candidate for chancellor when Palpatine announces he is a candidate. I think Wookieepedia mentions the reason for the invention of a character with already established first and last names, but I don’t remember and am too lazy to look for a link right now.

I think there is only one deleted scene in Black and white that really, really should be restored in full color.

I think all effort should be made to get that particular scene that is in Black and white done and done proper.

Han & Leia extended kiss Empire strikes back.

Honestly you could take or leave the rest. you could probably get away with Coloring Luke a sort of Cyan trying to hold on in the Rancor pit again a bit of trickery like TMBTM and use some clever ideas to “Get away with it” actually looking at what TMBTM did actually the blue and the Red should be the other way round sort of… I would go with a Red Bacta Tank as it was originally meant to be Red and is red in the background in a few shots so again no real issues.

Say if you wanted to do general Veers Death you could simply color in the cockpit of the AT-AT red like an alarm was going off. And seeing has they occasionaly have red cockpits it’s not gong to be a massive issue for anyone.

Yep, I read about this, but I refer it to “Bail Organa” as this is the name of which this scene is known… that’s all… but it seems nobody pronounced his name, so at the end he may be anyone, more or less! 😉

benduwan said:

Some I read before, for the others I’m going on - hundreds posts, it will take some time… the fact is, reading through dozen pages to extract maybe just one useful information for the project is not that easy; that’s why I must rely also on your help for any specific question.

Like the topic we are talking about now, for example; the “colorized classic” thread is not useful for the project, because I’m more than aware how to transfer a low resolution color grading to an high definition source; the fact is, do the b&w SW deleted scenes exist in a recolored form, in ANY resolution? I asked this before, but it seems they do not. Because, if they do exist, even as CD-ROM content at 320x240 and 12fps, I CAN extract the colors from those, and apply them to the HD b&w scenes, up to 90/95% accuracy - that will be more than adequate!

Not only that… even Han’s “girlfriend” and Chewie “nice muzzle” is a nice shot. I think this is the only piece worth of recolor in the whole cantina scene - not that because the rest in uninmportant, but because it will take SO LONG and SO MUCH WORK to restore colors, and result will be always not so good 😦

I thought about this, too. The rebel hangar, apart Chewie, Leia and Luke who salute Lando, is almost the same and can be skipped.

You’ll have to Rotoscope in a colored Cantina Lamp.

Not seen the nice Muzzle shot…

Don’t forget the missing Blaster Fire before Obi-wan chops off whomever’s arm get’s chopped off. I am pretty sure it’s meant to get deflected back at Dr Cornelius Evanzan. And Walrus Man’s arm was “Meant to get chopped off” As they both go down for some reason so one takes a deflected laser.

It’s when Han meet Luke and Ben for the first time; his “girlfriend” is there as well, and then leave.

And I thought to use the “nice guy” cut arm found on Adywan edit.

To be honest, I strongly prefer the 4th option. Moreso than the other options, it comes across as a “deliberate creative” stylistic decision. 😉

3 inescapably looks like B&W footage that was computer colorized, and I have suspicions that 2 would as well to a lesser extent. 4 is so radical that you can almost buy the filmmakers intended it to be that way. Grade the hues just a tad more subtly, and I think you’ve got yourself a scene!

Glad to hear that part of the cantina scene will be restored. Should be cool.

Again, choosing your battles wisely, those seem like good sections to colorize. I might also advocate for using a colorized original arm shot instead of Adywan’s for authenticity, but this comes down to your judgment.

RESTORED DELETED SCENES NEEDED!

I know there were some projects before about restoring deleted scenes, both as stand alone projects, and to be used in extended editions. If someone still has them, and would like to contribute to this project by let it use those scenes, please post here!


Random thoughts.

Yesterday I picked up my old pan&scan copy of Spaceballs laserdisc, just to spend some time and maybe get fresh ideas. Two things I noted immediately: this is not a p&s, but actually an open matte version, and it’s incredibly nice, given the fact it’s a 30yrs old disc… well, Mel Brooks did a good job; I like more Young Frankenstein, but this comedy has its moments (the Alien gag is great, and to hear John Hurt saying “not again!” is priceless!).

Well, back to topic, there is at least one shot that could be used; the escape pod from the last part of the movie is extremely well done, and I thought that it can replace (please do not shoot me!) the one at the beginning of EP4…

Another thing that I ever wanted to do is to fix the edit mistake done in EP4, when Owen and Luke are buying droids; there is a shot of R2 with the red droid still near it (him?), while it is actually broken few meters away near Luke and 3PO; TMBTM managed to solve this - have someone else thought about this little, but important, detail? Not GL, of course, he had to hide R2 behind some rocks!

maybe you find more informations or ideas:

I managed to spend some time to visit all the threads, and read the interesting parts; I read many of them before, but I reread them to find something more; there were some interesting ideas, but sadly many images and links are dead now, and some member who can contribute to this project were offline since years.

Luckily, some others are still active, and I dropped a PM to them, to know if they have some restored deleted scenes, and would like to share them, to be used in this project.

If done properly, following a color reference, point 2 will lead to good, if not excellent, results. The fact I’m not skilled (and also too lazy, I must admit) will not help, of course! So, unless a good soul would step in and offer his/her services, it’s simply not a viable option. But I must add this: if a photoshop/GIMP skilled user will follow this basic idea (http://www.cs.huji.ac.il/~yweiss/Colorization - there are some basic how-to guide around), it will take “relatively” few time to properly color the needed scenes/shots.

Point 3. Yes, I agree, as I wrote before, that result is less than perfect, and it’s difficult to believe anyone will be fooled enough… but, again IMHO, it could be less distracting than a single (or dual) tone trick. Of course, further tests should be made.

Glad to hear that part of the cantina scene will be restored. Should be cool.

The fact is that this (brief) shot should be integrated in an existing, colored scene, so the “color trick” can’t be used, I think…

I might also advocate for using a colorized original arm shot instead of Adywan’s for authenticity…

Actually, the “nice guy” had the gun, so why we see the alien cut arm instead? Adywan corrected it perfectly!

Sandstorm scene is in need of big audio restore; I’m not an audio expert, so I don’t know if it’s possible to recover somehow the voices which are burden under tons of noise… someone thought to take dialogs from other films: good idea, difficult to put in act. I wonder if the radio drama contains this scene; if so, it will be great and easy to fix.

I’m not familiar with the NPR version of Return, but I’m trying to find the script. It was published the same way the NPR Star Wars script was published. There are a couple of scenes in the published Star Wars that didn’t make it into the broadcast. Perhaps that’s the case with Return also. I’ll let you know what I find.

Until then, the early draft of the shooting script for Return has this dialog from the sandstorm scene. It’s been a while since I watched the deleted scene you’re referencing. This may not even fit what they later filmed.


  1. EXT. HANGAR – HUTT SPACEPORT – SANDSTORM – DAY
    Lando leads Luke, Han, Chewie and the robots through a raging sandstorm toward the entrance to an underground starship hangar.

LANDO
It’s not much further.

HAN
I just hope you parked her out of this storm.

Chewie barks to his old friend that he picked the spot.

HAN
Good work Chewie.

They make it to the shelter of the hangar entrance. Lando and Chewie trundle down the flight of stairs, as Han stops Luke just inside the doorway.

HAN
Luke….

LUKE
I’d better wait for the droids.

HAN
Listen Luke. I’m not much good at these things, but I just want to say thanks. We’re even…. I’m sorry I doubted you….You have learned a lot….

Luke laughs, and pats his old friend on the back.

LUKE
Just a few tricks….

HAN
Luke….Ah about Leia….I

LUKE
I know everything. She loves you Han. My feelings for her are different than yours. I’m not going to get in your way.

Han gives Luke a big hug as Threepio stumbles up to the entryway. He looks a little worse for wear.

THREEPIO
Master Luke, Master Luke! They’ve taken Artoo….

LUKE
What? Where?

THREEPIO
(pointing) Back there…. two men, grabbed him. They’ll strip him for parts.

Han and Luke dash out of the entryway and into the full blast of the sandstorm.

  1. EXT. ALLEYWAY HUTT SPACEPORT – SANDSTORM.

They run down an alleyway looking for Artoo. The sand blows furiously around them.

LUKE
This way.

HAN
I can’t see a thing…wait over there.

Han points at two cloaked figures disappearing down a narrow passageway and starts after them. Luke follows. As Han rounds the corner, he is struck over the head by a powerful blow from behind. He hits the ground with a thud revealing little Artoo, helplessly dangling from a strap tied halfway up the wall. One of the figures puts a hand over the little droid’s mouth.

1’ST FIGURE
Get ready, here he comes.

Luke rounds the corner, sees Han, Artoo, and is instantly surrounded by a cage that suddenly appears around him.

OFFICER
Get his weapon.

Luke looks around and sees that he is trapped. He touches the bars of his cage, they’re electrified. His blaster is drawn out of his holster, and crashes against the magnetic bars.

OFFICER
Hurry, get him aboard the ship.

  1. EXT. HANGAR – HUTT SPACEPORT SANDSTORM

Chewie and Lando join Threepio at the entrance to the Hangar.

LANDO
What’s going on?

THREEPIO
They went to rescue Artoo. He was…

Chewie barks and points at Artoo and Han struggling through the sandstorm. Chewie and Lando go out to help Han.

HAN
They’ve taken Luke…

The loud roar of a starship taking off can be heard overhead. They all look up as it passes and fades in the distance.

HAN
Quick, we’ve got to go after them.

  1. HUTT SPACEPORT – DAY

The Millenium Falcon roars off its’ landing pad and quickly disappears into the sandstorm.

  1. INT. COCKPIT – FALCON

Han and Chewie are at the controls and Lando and the robots sit in the back. Chewie barks and flips a switch.

HAN
Yeah, that’s them all right. We can outrun them easy.

LANDO
Unless…

Out the cockpit window, the Imperial shuttle is very close when suddenly it rockets away at a terrific rate of speed, and disappears.

LANDO
(continued)
… they go to lightspeed.

Chewie pushes forward on the throttle and the Falcon slows. Han bangs his fist on the controls in anger.

HAN
Blast it!

LANDO
Chewie, set your coordinates for the fleet…

The Falcon rockets away into the stars.

The sandstorm scene does not have all that dialog, but I think this could be used nevertheless, because as it is now, it’s unusable, unless an audio magician would be so skilled to extract and clean the existing dialog…

If you can share that part, it will be great, thanks a lot!

Thanks a lot! Yep, so many shots for Rogue One, sadly so short that it will be hard to put them back… we’ll see!

For now, I’m working on some sort of automated colorization script, but nothing works well… I wonder if someone has recolored any of the b&w scenes, even in low resolution!

I wouldn’t worry just yet about Rogue One, a lot of deleted scenes will probably be on the blu ray though in sure not every shot will be
