Toy Story (1995) 1.5K restoration in 3D (a WIP)

For those wanting this project, I’m currently uploading the 2D version as we speak; I will upload the 3D (red/cyan anaglyph) version after I’ve finished running the left and right eyes through FFMPEG, combined them in Blender, and run the result through FFMPEG.

Please specify in your PMs whether you want the 2D version or the 3D version, or both. Otherwise, I will just send the 3D version. Once v1.0.1, with color correction, is complete, I recommend you replace your copies of the project with that version, 2D and/or 3D.

Those who receive the project via PM, let me know how it looks and how I could improve on it in future revisions.

Toy Story (1995) 1.5K restoration in 3D (a WIP)

All I can do is crop it to 1.85:1, which is how it was exhibited theatrically, but I’ve got the basic structure of the film in its original version worked out thanks to a Snahppy person who’d sent me a rip of his British DVD, which has no doubt been of great help to me even before I found out about, and received, a higher-quality full-length version of the Disney/PIXAR logo for which I had initially requested the rip. (The closing PIXAR logo I took from Geri’s Game, since that was its sole high-definition source.)

Anyway, once released, each version of the restoration will appear on the Snahppy website from Italia. Invitation required for access, or you can PM me beginning on Sunday.

I now have a clear roadmap on how I’m going to proceed with this.

On Sunday, I’m going to release the vanilla restoration, in both 2D and 3D (red/cyan anaglyph), without any fancy effects. This will be v1.0.

Shortly after, I hope to be able to apply the same color correction techniques I’d applied in the Recon Plan C color correction test. This will be v1.0.1.

v1.1, to come out next year, at a date to be determined, will add the French Canadian option, and I’ll also check my restoration against my French Canadian tape to see if any reframing needs to be performed.

I’m also planning to include the Akira Production Report, both dubbed and subtitled, and other known special features, including the trailers and the 2001 restoration documentary. Any help with materials would be well appreciated, especially in regards to the original Japanese closing credits and/or the creditless version of the final animation, which would be useful in recreating the Electric Media version’s closing credits.

Special thanks to SpookyDollhouse for recommending the Dynit Blu-ray as my primary video source and Marc R. Morris for sending me a digital copy of his BBC2 subtitled recording.
