We have created and watched several versions of this print in SD, 720p, and HD. All of them look much better than the GOUT.

We have a long way to go before a watchable version will be released.

Personally, I'm yet to see anything to convince me that the shots above are actually from a film print, and not just pulled from the 2004 DVD, re-coloured, then given a generous dose of JPEG compression.

We have added 2 more of the videos in 720p to the previous link. If someone can check them and report if they are working now.

It's a temporary video host, good for 2 weeks.

Team Negative1

Neither are working.

What error message are you getting? Do any of these work?

Well, it should ask you for a password. It works for us, because we posted the videos.

We'll keep trying. We thought that just going to basic site would prompt for a password. We'll have a look at the settings again.

Still trying:

It didn't ask for a password...just read "Test" or something similar.

This last video DID work...Nice before and after videos, by the way.

Ok, thank you for the confirmation. One last question, are you getting them in Full HD? One is in 1080p, and the others are 720p.

Thanks again for your patience.

We'll try to post more clips, as we have a lot more updates, and much more current videos available.

I do see Luke and Yoda in both 1080 or 720 and lower quality, and the space scene is in 720 and lower qualities also.

Thank you for all you guys are doing. The results are very exciting.

You're not addressing that person anymore, there is no '-1', by the way, must have been an earlier team member.

Do you consider this sufficient proof, and does it have the potential to be much greater than GOUT? We consider it as such.

Ok, this is just getting ridiculous now.  -1 has not been gone for a year, he has absolutely been posting lately (even if you aren't him), so to pretend you don't know who he is...how stupid do you think we are?

Another 720p HD clip has been added to the gallery, there was some pink fade on all the composited FX shots, and we tried to color correct them:

=========================================================

http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/n-KQJ7k/i-cNXGW4S

 

Note that there is a lot of compression on the video, and the color correction is only for removing the pink from the effects. Skin tones and other colors appear muted.

We have sample clips and frames of every Reel from the movie.

If there is anything short that people suggest (30sec of less), we'll see what we can do, as we will be posting previews from throughout the movie.

Looks like we will need a password to view this, team-1.

He may have been here more recently (and probably has), but he definitely posted about 9 hours before you did using the team account.  You should probably change your password.

Man, I am truly excited for this project but if I'd be lying if I said some of the guys working on it weren't crazy.

The password should be - OT

So... anyone gonna pull out the 04 dvd to compare the cropping? Moth3r made a pretty serious, and largely ignored thus far, claim that deserves addressing.

More comparison shots in 720p, still compressed, but the sample frames should be similar to downsized ones posted previously:

I think -1's continued ignoring of it speaks volumes.
