Out of curiosity, why 1080x816? That resolution really isn’t that common at all… not to mention that it isn’t Blu-ray compliant.
Not that I know much about SE audio mixes, but I was under the impression that only ANH got a brand new audio mix for the 2004 release (largely inferior to the 97 mix), while ESB and ROTJ’s audio mixes were based on the 97 mixes with some changes, much like how ANH’s 1993 audio mix deviated from the original 35mm stereo mix a lot more than the 93 mixes of ESB and ROTJ.
edit: Oh, didn’t realize that I bumped the thread by accident. Sorry.
A word of advice. Completely pointless necrobumps usually aren’t appreciated by anyone. At all.
An examination of the HD broadcasts of the DVD version has shown less anti-noise processing. That plus the way they were captured makes them as good if not better than the later blu-ray release.
I didn’t know this. I was under the impression that, further altered scenes aside, the HDTV and Blu-ray versions were identical.
I know that the 2019 master of Empire Strikes Back is zoomed in and moved to the right compared to the “HD Branch”, to the point that the end credits are no longer centered. However, in comparison to other releases, both official and unofficial, I don’t know how problematic it is. For example, with A New Hope, the Silver Screen Edition shows more picture than the HD Branch, which shows a slight amount more picture than the 2019 master (owing mainly to the crop to the sequel trilogy’s aspect ratio), which IIRC shows more picture than 4K77. However, I don’t remember 4k77 getting the complaints 2019 Empire has received.
Does 2019 Empire show more picture than the various pre-2004 masters or the various fanmade scans? How bad is the shift to the right, anyway?
So I recently bought the 4k Blu-rays. I never owned the original Blu-rays. Do even the DNR’d sections have more detail than the DVDs, at least? Would a new fan edit be required to get the best of all sources?
There’s this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrPh8Tlbybc
Weren’t there changes between the frame count V1 of Scholman’s HDTV (and assuming by extension Scholman’s theatrical reconstruction) and V2 of Scholman’s HDTV (which I’m assuming is the frame sync used here)?
So… does anybody know where I can find English forced subs and synced Theatrical DTS audio for this, if they exist?
Wasn’t the German dub (based off the 4kids English dub) available on dvd with 5.1 audio mixes? You could use that to help remove the dub score from the English dub.
There’s also this. https://github.com/lazydevyo/SpleetGUI
This might have already been answered, but what exactly are power windows? It seems impossible to find the definition in this context on google.
Maybe the scan was done in 4K nine years ago? Otherwise it is just an upscale with a pseudo-HDR.
That’s the real question, isn’t it?
Why do you want this when 4k83 is a thing? If it’s for the grindhouse look, there’s a grindhouse version of 4k83 IIRC.
…the moment you start flipping things around for no reason was the moment this turned into a fan edit.
Upscaling The Magic School Bus to 4k wtf?
I’ve heard people complain that some of the DVD releases were VHS quality. Upscaling isn’t going to accomplish anything. It would be better to just try to restore the original episode format while keeping it in SD.
There’s no reason for it to be 60 fps. It’s either 24 fps or 24000/1001 fps (23.976…), forgot which.
…if you’re trying to download an HD project, you need to own the official Blu-Ray first.
Are you sure about that? Stuff like the schorman HDTV preservations are overall closer to the DVDs than the Blu-rays. Perhaps the Blu-ray’s are “close enough” for the OT, but certainly not Ep 1 and probably not Ep 2 and 3.
I think 4k77 only had one DNR version, available in 4k and 1080p variants.
As for 4k83, I don’t know what happened to 1.0, but it’s irrelevant now. DNR 4k83 comes in three versions, v1.1 (Medium NR/Sharpness), v1.2.2 (maximum NR/Sharpness), and v1.3 (minimal NR), all with 4k and 1080p variants.
What master does the Disney+ version use? Is it the same as the 2011 master (or the 2011 master but upscaled)? Is it the 2011 master but at higher resolution? Or is it a new master entirely?
That’s what I meant, the 77 crawl. Must have mistyped.
“GOUT: unique pairing of original video with 1993 audio”
Don’t you mean unique pairing of 1993 audio and video with 1997 crawl?
So, if this is a completely new unreleased master that, additional changes aside, is objectively better than the 2004/2011 master, how will this affect the Despecialized editions and projects like it? Is Harmy going to cancel the 3.0 of ESB and ROTJ, and then do a 4.0 of all three movies based off these new masters (assuming they don’t appear in higher bitrate form on 4k Blu-ray or something in a year or two)?
Accidental double post. Whoops
So this is an upscale of the 2011 SE with a different color grade and (cringe) a further edited Greedo scene? I take it episode 2 and 3 are also upscales?
What about The Phantom Menace? Is that also an upscale of 1080p elements, is it true 4k… or is it an upscale of a 2k master?
Are you planning to also restore the Time-Life cut of Tom Baker Doctor Who (complete with narration and Latin Spanish dub)?
