1997 Star Wars Special Edition 35mm Project

I would suggest waiting just a bit longer, Zen+ is just supposed to launch (2700, 2700x etc.) and while the performance increase is not expected to be more than 10-15% it should also contribute to lower last gen prices if that’s more interesting rather than a slight performance increase.
Overall Ryzen tends to be a powerhouse when it comes to anything multi-threaded, however it falls a bit behind at single-threaded workloads (gaming etc.). Overall it’s best for you to look at your specific usecase and go from there.

Do these animation films need preservation?

I must’ve been misinformed, I distinctly remember someone posting screens and claiming the JP dvd to be widescreen. If you’re able to get a hold of the *.ts I’d be glad to to a framerate conversion and audio sync and send it over in return. I’m not as experienced as spoRv with logo removal but I’ll give that a go afterwards as well.

Edit: Here’s a screen from the PAL DVD:

Don’t know where you got a hold of it in letterbox.

Color matching and prediction: color correction tool v1.3 released!
Time

Bug report, don’t know why it’s happening, but when I match a source, each time the progress bar progresses, the Figure 1 window also shifts over a couple of pixels to the right. This never occured with the 32bit version, thus I suppose it’s an issue either due to a change in Version of the compiler, or due to it being 64bit now.

Could anyone post some of these frames from the Amazon version?

Here’s 7 of the 8, the last one seems to be promotional material only.
Also some of the frames doesn’t match up perfectly, for instance I can’t seem to find the one where they’re sitting on the floor with pans and plates cleaning.

Interest Check: The Matrix 1 pass Blu-ray regrade. Based upon earlier 35mm release.
Time

Alright, been working on this off and on, and I think I’ve been able to achieve a much better result, my monitor Is only semi-calibrated so I’d appreciate some feedback on these corrections.

Image is selected at the top and then you can swap between multiple comparisons at the same time, rather than just being limited to 2.

Edit: Here’s the print correction I’m working off of currently.

I’ve also managed to find a site that showcases the earlier DVD release. It shows none of the blanket green compared to later releases, question is how accurate it is compared to the original release in theater.

Rather than green it seems to me like it has a slight magenta tinge to it.

@zxthehedgehog
I’m currently experimenting with the channel mixer from adobe after effects. The main of idea of which was to carry over the light? luma? I don’t know the terms to be honest, I’m learning as I go here, from the bluray over to the print mainly due to the fact, that it had some issues with the very powerful highlights in terms of brightness (in my opinion).

While I said single pass regrade in the title it seems more likely the longer that I keep on working on this that I might take a more of a detailed approach.

Currently I’m testing whether some warping of frames might allow me to carry over the luma from the bd with less artifacting.

I’d love feedback as to what might be more proper ways of doing this, again I’m learning as I go.

So I’ve taken in a lot of feedback and I certainly agree with what everyone is telling me, I’ve been trying to figure out how to work with the print as there seems to be a fair bit of inconsistencies with it. Certain scenes look perfectly fine and others completely overblown with yellow, which compared with the better looking ones doesn’t match at all.

When I watched the first attempt at correcting the bluray yesterday, luma seems to still be the largest issue.

I just tried to match the bluray and print on that basis alone.
Turns out the results are fairly good, the print and BD doesnt perfectly match, so there is artifacting, it varies scene to scene.

Print before and after light matching to bluray.

I find the end results quite good & while they obviously don’t look all that great at the moment they will probably produce a better result to color match towards.

Updated with better comparisons.

Please do note that there has been no manual edits anywhere in this, I agree that this is a bit too much of a removal, particulary in the end corridor scene, even on the print it shows a lot more of green. My guess is that this is due to the fact that the color correction was based upon multiple scenes throughout the movie.

My own personal issue with this edit at the moment is that it has introduced a noticable yellow cast instead of the old green one, from what I gather this is due to the Agent Smith and Neo interrogation scene. The 35mm print seems to have a very strong yellow cast in that particular scene.

I’m still new to this stuff and am concidering doing more of a scene by scene based approach however I at the moment have no idea on how to do manual color corrections.

This was something I did for myself and had no intention of releasing, however if there is any interest I might reconsider.

This was not done on a scene by scene basis rather I’ve used the fantastic tool made by Dr.Dre & the tutorial posted by the TheStarWarsTrilogy.com Youtube channel to make a LUT based on multiple images.

My main motivation in doing this was the fact that, while the 35mm looked fantastic the lighting looked off. Darks too dark and light too bright. While this certainly doesn’t fix all of that I think it’s atleast a good middleground between the BD and it.

I’ve got a question, is there an easy way to mark scene changes in a file, or better yet auto export an image sample after each scene change.
I’m currently trying out this tool to change the Cowboy Bebop bluray colors into the earlier DVD release.

If need be I’ll do it manually but if there’s a tool to help out I’d love to hear about it.
