Estimating the original colors of the original Star Wars trilogy
Time

CatBus said:

Keep in mind, bulb matching is a thing. This is a great way to get the color on the print, but the color on the screen is the color on the print combined with whatever color bias the projector bulb has. So for a seventies bulb, we’re probably talking a little yellower. Not to diminish the importance of this in any way–this will be extraordinarily helpful, but maybe not the final word.

From what I understand, this could relatively easily be incorporated into DrDre’s algorithm. You would need to describe the light used to scan a particular print and the light emitted by a bulb what was in common use when said print had its run in theaters. Of course the accuracy of the final result would depend on how accurate data you fed to the algorithm.

Look, you can mock me all you want if you can’t take some constructive criticism. But I’m not seeing any refutation of the logic that if you’re gonna upload something publicly anyway, you might as well do it in a faster and more convenient way.

Faster and more convenient how exactly?

Two problems with public trackers:

  1. Speed. Everyone can connect and everyone can download. Hit’n’runners ruin everyone’s download speed and never give back, which is a huge issue for 25GB torrents. Seedbox users rarely use public trackers, because honestly, why would they? No one wants to waste bandwidth on people who close their torrent client immediately after the download is done. Uloz.to is faster.

  2. They’re public. Everyone can connect to every torrent and log people’s IP’s. Copyright trolls can too.

Stop whining and fill your captchas. Using a download manager it will all take about 4 minutes of your life.

Jesus.

 Well, a 5 second colour balance and a crop and resize.

Okay, cause I'm assuming we're dealing with pink vinegar reels or some such thing, right?  It sounded for a second like you found a source that looked that good out of the (airtight, argon-filled) box.

 Pretty sure poita only deals with Technicolor Star Wars prints, so no color fade.

 Actually, I have scanned so far..

Star Wars: Multiple Technicolor IB prints, Eastman, a smelly VS print, and an incomplete LPP, 16mm on poly and acetate, Super8 on acetate. Another two IB prints awaiting scanning.

Empire: Eastman, Fuji, 16mm on acetate, a faded reel of dailies, Super8 mute print on poly

Jedi: LPP x 2, 16mm on acetate, and I have another two prints waiting in the wings for my financial situation to improve.

 Damn, that's an impressive list. I don't even want to know how many terabytes this all weights.

I really hope you folks coming here for invites aren't going to be hit n runners there.  That junk really grinds my gears.

Why do we still entertain these requests in the project threads?  It clogs them up.

I'm new to MySpleen and trying to seed "safely" without people being able to see my computer and potentially harm it. No idea what I'm doing and the MySpleen "how to torrent" link is dead. Any help would be awesome! I posted on the spleen forum last week and got nothing. . .

People can't harm your computer using bittorrent protocol, but your IP is completely open for anyone to see. If you don't want it, get a VPN or a seedbox.

I think a modern human being can watch Fantasia and understand it is a product of its time, and anyone that can't, well the edited version exists from Disney.

Whitewashing these scenes now seems far more offensive to me than watching it with the scenes intact.

My 5 year old would not understand something like that.

 Your for year old would probably sympathize with Sunflower and wouldn't even notice her skin color.

It's you who's overly sensitive, not your child.

Color matching and prediction: color correction tool v1.3 released!
Time

How accurate are the colors on odd film cells being sold on eBay, added to collector's BD editions, etc? Does anyone know the process of making them?

I'm asking, because I imagine that those generally come from specifically struck prints containing only one, or a couple of frames replicated over and over again. Are those prints made from the internegative used for theatrical prints (or rather, parts of it), or is the process different in any way?

DrDre's software is a big deal, because in theory buying only a couple of frames and scanning them would give us a very good approximation of original colors. The possibilities would be endless.
