Hello, I’d like a PM as well, if possible.
I would like that version as well, if you don’t mind sharing t.
I made some lossless captures:
Personally, while very colorful, I’d like something less saturated and closer to the OT. But nevertheless it’s a very nice regrade. Kudos to OP.
Hello, could I have a MEGA link as well? Thanks in advance.
And me too!
Hello, could I get the regrade as well. Thanks in advance =)
Looks really good so far. Did a quick comparison of a frame from a BluRay Encode I have and that short clip, it’s really interesting how adding film grain improves the look
Looks very good! Downloading the latest preview.
Perhaps a little more blue and less brightness might help?
What’s wrong with the Blu-ray that a preservation would be required?
The Digital Bits awarded it an A+
I think we’re not talking about a restoration; rather, it’s about preserving a film print, just like the Mulan 35mm project.
Poita said OK so here it is-
1080p at bluray bitrate. It’s 7-zipped with no password and a checksum file in case you get a bad part.
I know poita is scrapping this print, but does anyone still have these preview files?
If there is any interest on a preservation, I’d gladly donate some bucks.
is there any chance to get the links for 4k77 and 4k83?
4K77 is on public trackers. 4K83 should be as well, or perhaps you might need to wait a little longer.
The newest version of SSE is 1.6, but you might download 4K77, which is a superior scan/release.
Myspleen is only temporarily not accepting invites, one day they’ll open it again to new accounts. The LPP scan is also on Blutopia.
It is on public trackers.
I might be wrong, but I think that Star Wars shot comes from the GOUT (RotJ DeEd 2.5 was the first GOUT-free release, except for a easter egg). Star Wars DeEd 2.7 also used a few shots from the SSE, which is lower quality than 4K77.
Sorry to ask, but I have been trying to find any opinion regarding the differences between the 1080p and the 4K versions of 4K83. For 4K77, there were some people who said that, given the source material and the tools available to the team, there wasn’t a huge quality difference between the HD and UHD versions (other than a better defined grain structure). However, given 4K83 used a presentation print that was only one generation away from the original negatives, I’m not sure if the same applies to 4K83 as well. I’ll be happy with the 1080p version, of course (and thank you for the team and their hard work!), but if 4K is a huge boost in quality I might grab that version as well.
Cheers and happy New Year.
Not sure if it helps, but I was one of the donors for The Little Mermaid and in a PM I was explained why that one is also limited to donors. All I can say is that the reasons sounds legit to me.
First of all, expecting that people can correctly transmit what they’re trying to say without needing to repeat or clarify a few points is already ableist, not everyone can do it in one try, and not every mind works the same way.
And second, I prefer to be the kind of person that considers something ableist even if it isn’t, since the world in which we live is already ableist AF (so, at best, it may happen that we err on our analysis but our intentions are in the good place and we probably won’t hurt anyone), rather than the kind of person who makes jokes about some discussions about ableism in Star Wars (“lulz K2 is disabled”, which was a metaphor, not an actual description of the character) and then uses his disabled daughter to appoint himself as an authority on ableism.
As I already said on my previous comments, I knew the reaction would be hostile and negative. And that’s what has happened. So I’ll stop posting in this thread. Good day to all of you.

K2 is stupid?
No, he’s disabled.
At the end.
Lol, you write these comments, and then you have the guts to use your daughter as an appeal to authority.

I don’t think the term SJW should be a pejorative.
I also share your view, but that’s how it is used.
I believe it’s not asking for much to ask that we show respect to other people who’ve committed no crime other than being different than us, purposefully or not. I have a high-functioning daughter for God’s sake.
I know that. And when you were banned after you reacted against another user who said the r-word (wasn’t DrDre?), I was with you. And that was at a time when I already had many problems with your general attitude. But I thought it was a dirty move to use your past actions to diminish your reasonable criticism, because your daughter and other disabled people are not guilty of being different, and they should not suffer violence for being different.
And I am completely baffled by this complaint.
Fine. This is not the first time I see people seeing some forms of ableism and denying others. It also happens with many others types of violence and oppresion. After all, some Asperger people think of themselves as better than other autistic people. So even in the disabled community there are some shitty views and attitudes (that does not mean Asperger people does not suffer ableism; they do).
I know I’ll never convince anymore, so I honestly prefer to not speak of this topic anymore. I knew people would say I’m exaggerating, that I’m just a SJW that wants to ruin everything, so… Whatever. I gain nothing from continuing this particular conversation.
If you don’t want to read my comments anymore, do whatever you want. I just say that, if your rude comment was because you didn’t find my comments enjoyable, there was no reason to be so rude. If it was because you misunderstood me, then no problem, sorry for the confusion.

I’m pretty sure I’ve never heard this complaint about Homer Simpson. Not once. And supposedly I’m the biggest SJW on the site.
I did not want to speak about my complains about K-2SO since I know I will be accussed of being a SJW.
But stupid characters aren’t disabled either. That conflation is far more offensive than whatever happened in Rogue One.
I’m using “stupidity” as a synonym of disability here. I’m not speaking of individual actions that could be considered “stupid”. OT Threepio seems to do some “stupid” things, but with K-2SO almost everything he does is “stupid”.
K-2SO may not have been conceived as a disabled character, but people find him funny for the same reasons thy find Homer Simpson’s “stupidity” funny, or use the r-word. It’s a bigger problem beyond anyone’s conscience and intentions.
Since K-2SO is a robot, in this case, it seems the robot lacks the appropiate programming. But my point is, had K-2SO been a human character, the comedy would have been essentially the same. Who doesn’t laugh at Homer Simpson’s stupidity? Therefore, I found K-2SO related comedy ableist, and I hated that.
I don’t really understand the conflation of stupidity and ableism here either. K2SO doing stupid things doesn’t make him disabled.
He can’t be disabled since he’s a robot, but my point is that the same comedy that makes K-2SO “funny” is the same comedy that makes disabled characters “funny”. It’s not a problem that is limited to Rogue One.
I never laugh at Homer Simpson’s stupidity, that’s my point.

I find your comments about Baze and Chirrut’s relationship, and your comparison of K2SO to a disabled person, to be in poor taste. At best.
Sorry you don’t like getting called out on it.
Frink, I know what you’re saying, but you’re completely misunderstanding me. I am not saying “I don’t like K-2SO because he’s like a disabled person” or “I don’t like Baze and Chirrut because they’re gay”. What I criticise is the comedy that is at the expense of K-2SO (which is similar to the comedy made at the expense of disabled people), and that the only way Disney developed the Baze-Chirrut relationship was to fall in the problematic “tragic couple” trope, since it’s almost always the only way gay couples are represented on media. Baze and Chirrut deserved way more than that.
If I expressed myself badly, I apologice, it was not my intention.
