Captain Eo Laserdisc on Ebay
Time

I have some info about Eo that could be useful to people looking around about EO, I have collected, personal experience and cast member ties. Also keep in mind eveytime i say print I mean pair of prints. Captain EO is a 3D movie requiring 2 prints to be shown properly

I can say for definite that none of the 70mm prints made for the re-run were being used after 2013 for EO Tribute. (from June 30th, 2010 to December 6th, 2015)

In the 80s run, Disney had three film sources, the original camera negative (35mm/65mm on Eastman 5384 Film Stock) Interpositive Blowup (70mm). Then the Theater Prints. (70mm) these were made to be used in the Disney parks that showed EO.

For the Tribute run, Disney Struck New Prints from the Interpositive Blowup made in the 80s

The Orignal Sound mix was made on a 6 track reel to reel tape. For prints I don’t know whether the sound was split ( 3 channels to the left eye film print, 3 channels to the right film ) or if it was all condensed on one film print or (the least likely) it not being on the film being on a sperate mag track or maybe a reel to reel.

When the Captain EO Tribute came back for the first 3 years they used New Prints made from the Interpositive Blowup made in the 80s.

But sometime in 2013, Disney made a (presumably) 4K Scan and Digital 6 track Restoration of Captain Eo. This was because of the increasingly more brittle 70mm projectors and the Interpositive Blowup made in the 80s is distressed due to the number of prints being struck from it. Anyway from some time in 2013 to December 6th, 2015.

Someone posted a 70mm print for sale on eBay. I don’t know whether the print came from the 80s run or the 2010’s run. I hope one day that an official scan of Captain Eo will surface, its a great little slice of 80s cheese.
I think that captain Eo has a better chance of surviving than star tours for example because each theatre needed 2 prints per showing

4k77 - shot by shot color grading

This is a Comparison of a bunch of CC’s I have seen lately. They were made by taking images from of all the sources as well as a No DNR version of 4K77 and running them through Dr Dre’s Wonderful Colour Matching Algorithm. I personally prefer NevearGreats and Dr Dre’s but please give me your opinions.

Edit: The link is now fully operational!

Get rid of the ! at the beginning of your link. It makes Markdown think you’re embedding a photo and thus breaks the link.

Thank you very much. I was not sure about how to post images on this fourm. I will get to fixing that link in around an hour when I get home. Btw how do you post images what programs/code do you use to get it in to OT.com?

I was already excited for 4k77 but this looks amazing!! Will you be doing the same regrade for the DNR version when it comes out?

Thanks! I might, although it might actually be easier to apply DNR to the color graded version.

How will the cc be distributed as luts or as the video files

The plan is as video files.

How will these files be distributed and can I get an aprox date of completion

It will be done when it’s done. I’m pretty busy, so I can’t really give a reliable estimate.

Oh I’m sorry. I was just looking at all the progress shots and was so excited by the work you are doing. Everything looked exactly how I remember it back from 1977. I didn’t mean to offend you. Your doing so much fantastic work I wouldn’t want to give you the wrong impression. I just got ahead of myself. Sorry again but absolutely love your work!
