I Did Stumble Across The YouTube Video That Was In 60FPS and it was The Star Wars Holiday Special.
A while back, I had installed some “60 FPS filter” plugin that didn’t seem to be working, and I forgot all about it.
Then I downloaded the Holiday Special and I think it finally started working…and it gave me some serious motion sickness >_<
At least, that’s the only explanation I can think of. After I burned it to a disc and watched it on a different setup, it didn’t quite have that “soap opera look” anymore.
Man, I didn’t realize how orange & blue this movie was. This monitor isn’t calibrated at all, but a lot of that orange (especially in the 16mm) looks almost neon.
Who knew the Star Wars fandom would be first to release the Star Wars OUT (or in any form for that matter) in 4K before Lucasfilm or Disney…
…probably most of us… ¬_¬
At this rate, I seriously doubt Disney has any interest in the OUT. And unless they accept Mike Verta’s offer, I seriously doubt they could do any better.
You’re joking right? The blurays were created from scans of the original negative, the original negative was not color graded for theatrical release, so the entire movie had to be graded from scratch for the bluray. In other words, ALL of the colors were altered for the bluray.
Not only that, but according to Mike Verta’s analysis, some of the shots look as if there was so much color loss, that they were basically colorizing grayscale footage.
Did they color grade the Blu from scratch, though? I thought they used the DVD SE masters as a base, and just fixed some bits and pieces.
I got special thanks!? 😮
Downloading as fast as my little Internet connection can muster!
You got it, dude B)

I saw Eps 2 and 3 on opening night, and I honestly couldn’t tell you a single one of the trailers =) Even hearing you guys list some of them, none of it’s ringing any bells.
I want to say that maybe there was a LotR trailer, but I’m sure it was the other way around (Star Wars trailer before LotR).
Argh! You obviously know me too well…I get bugged horribly by all the lack of fidelity from over loud commercials to bad broadcast audio-but especially the poor recording of many youtube uploads.
I don’t know if things are better now, but back when I used to upload the Kitty Half-Time videos, YouTube was very picky about what was and wasn’t “high def”. I couldn’t find info on exactly what minimum resolution your videos had to be, but YouTube decided that my capture card’s raw output wasn’t high enough, and would automatically upload it all as 240p =|
I really love these colors, but dirt/grain removal is not my thing =( Is there another project with just the colors?
(sorry if this has been done to death, I haven’t been active here in a while)
I can tell you that the recent Return of Godzilla DVD (Kraken) doesn’t have “dubtitles”.
Man, that English dub is really, really awful >__<
Looking forward to the exciting finale in your 16mm Trilogy Project!
I’m hoping for one of A New Hope in the future. Having the original '77 is nice, but having something with a lot less color fade would be nice, too.

Right, I’m just saying that usually they crop.
I’m sure many other broadcasts of the film will be open-matte as well. Especially in PAL countries.
They do that a lot these days with letterbox films, usually cropped though, on TV and Netflix/streaming/etc. And we thought the days of pan’n’scan were long gone =|
Without the Dialogue you miss a lot of the culture of “that world” and no Mad Max film has ever been silent before.
A good portion of Mad Max 2 is silent.
I’m sure I’ll check out Fury Road in silent mode at some point (provided it’s a separate audio track as promised), but I’m indifferent towards the idea. Seeing it in Black & Chrome is what I’m really pumped about. I bet it’ll look awesome that way, and as good as the theatrical release was, I was already pretty tired of Orange & Teal at that point.
Just an old, forgotten film =( I’m kind of surprised it’s on DVD at all, I have one from Good Times. It’s not that bad, from what I can remember.

A couple of questions:
Is a Grindhouse release on the cards?
Harmy’s Grindhouse of Jedi is from these scans, is it not?

I am literally ROFLMAO.

Doing that reminded me what I noticed more recently – something that looked like an anamorphic-lens brightness roll-off, where the edges of the picture darkened in curvature.
Okay, I’m sold. Doing the whole reel at once looks pretty awesome.
Those tweaked shots look way too bright though, and I don’t even have my monitor brightness very high.

If there was a third act scripted, it wasn’t in the script they used for the book.
The only major scene omission is the birthday party. The overdubbed scene of the kids at the tree in the rain is a little bit longer in the book, but they did a decent job with it in the finished film.
For those interested, I did a writeup about the book a while back: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089114/board/nest/39489468?p=1
