4k77 - shot by shot color grading
Time

Someone (who just had a baby, no less) working on a project they’re not getting paid for in their spare time that they’ll be giving you access to for free when it’s finished is not the same as someone making a product they’re being paid for that they intend to sell.

No one on this board owes anyone ETAs or progress updates, and comments like that just serve to piss them off and make them feel unappreciated. One or two people have abandoned projects altogetger in the past, or decided not to share them, because of attitudes like that from other members.

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.

Come on, man.

Attack of the Clones 35mm found on eBay

Poita’s account was active three days ago, though you’re right that he hasn’t posted since October.

He’s a busy guy and has had his share of health problems completely unrelated to the TPM print as well, so I don’t think that incident is the cause of the radio silence. Though other health concerns sadly aren’t outside the realm of possibility.

Episode IX - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

I know we’ve covered this in triplicate, but by this logic Ep 4 may as well have been called ‘A New Hope Among Many’. The whole point of the OT is that Luke is unique - that he’s tapping into something rare and difficult and mostly forgotten. Why else would the series be so invested in him personally? When Obi Wan solemnly declared “That boy is our last hope”, why didn’t Yoda simply say “No, any idiot will do. Let’s get that Solo guy. He seems confident”?

Or he was the last hope because of his family connection to Vader (“the other” was always meant to be his sister, too, even when that sister wasn’t Leia).

I think Obi-Wan and Yoda believed that being forced to confront his offspring would put him off balance enough to give Luke an edge. It turned out that they were right to place their trust in Luke, but not for the reason they believed - it was because Luke didn’t lose faith that his father could be saved.

It wasn’t because they simply couldn’t find someone else who was strong in the Force to train.

And if you’re going by prequel “rules,” they (or at least Obi-Wan) believed that Luke - or at least, one of Anakin’s children - was the Chosen One, rather than Anakin himself as they’d all believed before. So, by buying into the prophecy, yeah, he would’ve seen Luke as the “last hope.”

I think the natural state of the Force means anyone can tap into it, but needs practice and training to use it effectively, and some are more naturally talented than others and use it instinctually.

But the Force has its own will, and can “raise up” someone (like Rey) in a crisis situation (“Darkness rises, and light to meet it”).

I’m with this except, maybe, that last part. I don’t like the idea that the Force can bend someone to do it’s will. Especially the Light side.
I also haven’t seen the movie, so that might not be what happens.

It’s pretty much explicitly stated in The Last Jedi. I’ll see if I can find the whole quote.

JEDIT: Here it is:

SNOKE: Darkness rises, and light to meet it. I warned my young apprentice that as he grew stronger, his equal in the light would rise. Skywalker, I assumed.

Maybe not explicit, but pretty close if you ask me.

And I don’t think it’s that the Force is bending someone to do its will, but bestowing unusual mastery of the Force on someone who can do the most to counter the darkness. Rey still has free will and can run away and not do anything if she chooses.

If I may ask, was there ever a thought to do something about Han speaking Shyriiwook (or is that even possible)? Personally I could definitely live without ever hearing that part again, haha.

Personally, I think getting rid of the subtitles in that scene is helpful. You get everything through context just fine, and it removes the weird feeling of it being literally the only time in ten movies that Shyriiwook is subtitled.

Plus that means you could cut out one or two instances of Han’s growling if you really want to.

The future of OT.com - UPDATE: Please donate!

Ed1973 said:

if anyone asks someone on here for a link or access or a disc to be burned I think the reply back should be “donate to the site and I will”.

We already have a reputation for being hostile to newcomers (which isn’t entirely without cause). This is a rabbit hole we don’t want to go down. That’s not even getting into the ethical/legal issues we’d be inviting by requiring site donations for access to projects when we’ve spent years developing the culture of “Never ever ever charge people for fan projects or you’re done, no second chances.”

Not trying to jump down your throat or anything - your heart’s in the right place and it’s not a bad idea for other types of communities. But I don’t think it’s an idea that should be entertained for us. Even if you’re not paying the creator of a project for his work, being forced to cough up cash to anyone in any capacity in order to gain access isn’t okay.

At least, those are my thoughts on the idea.

The Last Jedi: Rekindled (RELEASED!)

I wish editing was as simple as copy/paste so I could just blend the scene in myself. But I totally understand if you want to keep it the way it is. But yeah please, no need to touch Space Leia. Your version is fantastic at moment (in my opinion).

This might not be impossible using MKVToolNix - you’d have to remux each one and split it at an equivalent point just after the Hux convo, then use the "join* feature to cut in the first part of Hal’s with the rest of poppa’s.

I actually kind of agree with you, so I might experiment with trying this out when I have time and see if it works. If it does, I’ll provide detailed instructions.

Probably couldn’t play it on everything depending on the encoding settings of the two edits (which might preclude this from being doable at all without reencoding first at equivalent settings), but it should work on PC software players like MPC-HC.
