So am I. 😃
Looks GREAT, Dek! I’m super impressed with what you were able to achieve with your color correction, can’t wait to watch it all the way through soon.
Anybody else who’s interested just send me a PM. Makes it easier for me and clogs up the thread less. Thanks. 😃
PM sent. 😃
you guys hard
it would be sad to see this place disappear.
Ditto. This site means a lot to me, so I hope option 1 or 2 works out well. I wouldn’t be able to make a monthly donation, though. But this site and its community have literally changed my life for the better. Thanks for everything Jay, Silverwook, Anchorhead, and the rest of you hooligans.
Read the thread for previous discussion on the Blu-ray.
They could never make Discovery if they were beholden to the aesthetic of the 60s
Why? I love the 60s aesthetic! It’d get me to watch this show, anyway.
I assume the-powers-that-be want the show to appeal to demographics beyond the hardcore Trekkies who like retro kitsch.
Most people would’ve been satisfied if they recreated this:
with some modern “movie” sensibilities. Not as unnecessarily shiny-white as JJ Abrams did, but that’s the idea. You can make it look like the same in universe time period without making it look like low budget '60s TV again. The Cage didn’t even have the excessively colorful lighting the series would have so the original look of the sets translate really well to a more realistic look.
This makes me very sad. Rest in peace Mr. Lee.

Just watch The Last Jedi afterwards.

Whatever the answer may be
It might have something to do with the plot or something. I don’t know, just a hunch.
Holy crap I’m getting them on desktop too…
I mean, if Jay needs it to support the site, but
Why are there ads on mobile? Anyone else see them? Did I miss this being posted about already?
I think The Voyage Home is special, but the idea that The Search for Spock isn’t fantastic is beyond me. The theft and Destruction of the Enterprise, the death of David, the outcome of Genesis. What’s not to love?
And as I’ve kept saying, The Final Frontier is a great movie underneath a bunch of silly baggage that can easily be edited out. Nothing is really missing from the film, it just needs to be trimmed of the out of place humor.
The Motion Picture is missing something, so even when the fat is trimmed it won’t be on quite the same level as the others.
I took a look at the 15 GB version and the compression isn’t even that bad. Certainly within passable. Looks very cool, I’ll have to sit down and watch the whole thing some time. I hope you finish a higher quality encode.
I am curious, what actually are the video sources that were used for this?
How can multi-project coordination happen if there’s only one project going on? How many new theatrical ROTJ projects have to pop up for you guys to buy it as the new standard? You can bet Harmy will use it since Hairy-hen and Schorman have updated their audio tracks, so I don’t get where all these other projects are supposed to come from for it to be worth changing foreign audio.
4K77 went through a shot-by-shot colour correction.
That’s only true for the DNR version. The first release had a reel by reel balance that preserves the variances between shots.
Heres the link for 4K83, Return of the Jedi:
I don’t see how that’s relevant to this thread.
How about we create a Phantom Zerome Thread and let him loose there?
I thought film can’t be HD, anyway, since “HD” is a digital term.
Well, technically. But comparing film to HD at all is a flawed concept at that point. My point was that grain and damage aren’t a factor when comparing resolution, which HD refers to.
You can have the rest of the forum.
Don’t let him have it please
screams in the void said:
^ I meant they were not in HD in there original theatrical run , not the kind of HD we have today . The picture was clear and sharp , but they also had scratches and film grain
That’s not how the term “HD” works. Also note that some HD video tranfers have grain and occasionally some scratches.
Why not the VHS?
Because VHS has objectivly inferior picture quality.
