4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

Your eyes are great at white balancing. You look at something that is “white” and your brain will make it so.

I do have to disagree with Dr. Dres approach with TV settings. I have my TV set to appropriate settings for Dolby Vision and while every other film looks fine, these films are definitely undersaturated. Re tuning your TV should not be the solution here.

[Official] All Star Wars films released in 4K HDR on Disney Plus: 4KSE with more changes
Time

I found what i believe is the first of many grading errors in Star Wars. It’s the scene where luke gets out of the speeder after the mind trick scene. The camera pans up with luke and so does a power window making the sky a shade of brown. Excuse the crummy photo but you can see it here.

I couldn’t see it as much on my Laptop, might be on the Dolby Vision version only.

The desaturation is very apparent on my LG OLED and significantly warmer than my Macbook Pro. Which should be set to the same whitepoint (D65).

Also this is interesting

Anyone working on a color correction and regraining of terminator 2 4k mastered?
Time

I recently saw a 35mm print of Terminator 2. I should have taken notes but a few things i can remember

  1. The laser bolts in the opening termination battle were purple like the old master

  2. All metal hospital scenes were cool, even the daytime ones. More like the 4K master than the old one.

  3. The daytime LA scenes like the canal chase were all nice and warm.

KTP's Gold Standard Collection

Apparently, Fanres.com is too damn bigoted against people like me with brains so big they don’t know what to do with them, so I’ve given up on them.

Oh no, please don’t bring this nonsense here. Your threads were removed for good reason. 2 Years of spamming vaporware projects with nothing to show for it.

These KTP collections are so absurdly broad and ambitions but with zero details of what you plan to do or how to do it. We don’t need these here.

3D Movies Preservation
Time

A 3D film im dying to see again is Encounter in the Third Dimension An imax film from 1999. I recall watching this as preteen back in the day on a full size imax screen and it blowing me away. Since then I’ve been able to identify it on one of two 3D DVD formats, the superior of which is simply impossible to find. I also believe It was broadcast in HD 3DTV back in the days where that was a thing. I’d simply love to get a HD SBS version of this in HD.

Ah, fair enough. Is the AC3 from the LD the same 1999 theatrical mix, or is it a home video “near-field” mix?

I think that the AC3 from the LD is exactly the theatrical Dolby mix and not a nearfield mix. Chewie, do you have other information about it?

All I can say is when I had both of them lined up in Premiere I could see differences in Dynamic range by comparing waveforms. It looked to me like the LD audio could have been tweaked slightly for Home viewing which would make sense to me.

Or there could have been differences in the Dolby mix and the AC3 mix on the negative itself. I’m not sure.

Phantom Menace '99 - HD Theatrical Version by Chewielewis

Hi all

I’ve just finished what I hope to be the final render of this project. New grading, improved missing scenes, better encoding.

Im still not 100% on which audio should be default, the Cinema DTS or the nearfield mix from the Laserdisc, both sound real good. I have Cinema First but keen to hear your input.

Subtitles still need to be done so if I have time I’ll work on that. Not something I’m too familiar with so will probably just edit an SRT file from somewhere. I do know that the subs are rather inaccurate on the DVD and improved on the Bluray.

If you would like to QC the preview version please PM me and I’ll send you a Resillio key.
