Guide for Working with 4K HDR Blu-ray Rips in SDR
Time

Yep, I’m using the same settings and it says:

Creating job for current source
-> Creating jobs for source: (1)
-> Generating calls for: S:\Star.Wars.Episode.IV.1977.2160p.BluRay.REMUX.mov
Enforcing cfr decoder output due to mov output.
Enforcing ffmpeg remove negative delay due to mov output.
Ignoring time codes for output since Vapoursynth frame interpolation is used.
adding ProRes calls for source: 1
createJobs for S:\Star.Wars.Episode.IV.1977.2160p.BluRay.REMUX.mov
creating attachment extraction subjobs
creating video subjobs
creating muxing subjobs
optimizing the subJobs
-> finished creating subjobs for current source
added new job with id 22_18_14_6810
-> should be there after processing: S:\Star.Wars.Episode.IV.1977.2160p.BluRay.REMUX_22_18_14_6810_02.mov
starting 22_18_14_6810_02_video@22:18:14.726 - S:\Star.Wars.Episode.IV.1977.2160p.BluRay.REMUX.mov

And then nothing happens.

Yeah. I converted it to ProRes and I’m getting the same artifacts there. Though I did the conversion in Adobe Media Encoder, so that might be the problem. But when trying to do the conversion in ffmpeg, it always crashed after a few minutes. Or rather it said it had finished but the resulting file would be only like the first couple of minutes of the movie.

OK, 44rh1n’s LUTs make it look more or less correct but the artifacts are still there.

When I look really closely, the artifacts are there even on the flat image and when I increase the saturation on the m2ts, they come out as well. Could there be something wrong with the file I have?

I was wondering if you guys could help me out with the HDR stuff - I’m working in Premiere and I don’t have DaVinci studio.
I remuxed the mkv to mp4, as per the guide and when I import that into Premiere, I do get the flat-looking image but when I try to make any adjustments to it, it brings out some really awful color-artifacts.

Interesting thing is that when I remux it to m2ts in tsmuxer, Premiere will read it as well and it displays the proper colors but it’s incredibly slow and buggy.

Could someone maybe provide me with a LUT that would work in Premiere or something like that?

EDIT: I just noticed 44rh1n already provided some LUTs in his post, so I’ll try those.

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

Hello, guys. So, as I said before, I’m getting this month off from work and I’m planning to work on Despecialized.
Now, the reason I’m writing this post is to ask you guys for donations. I hate to do this but as I’m a freelancer, being out of work means I’m not gonna be getting any income and right now, the VFX industry is kind of f*cked, because all filming has stopped due to COVID, so I’m not even sure there will be much payed work for me in the future. Luckily, if it comes to that, I can survive on savings for a while but I will have to cut any extra expenses, so I could really use some help with the software and hardware expenses for Despecialized.
Any donations to harmypaypal@email.cz are welcome and, of course, any donors will get their names in the credits.

Just to be upfront about this, I can’t actually promise any delivery date on Despecialized - I’m starting over with an all new set of sources and right now, I’m still trying to figure out how to properly work with the HDR sources and it’s a bit frustrating. But I’m talking to some guys about possible collaborations, including oohteedee and DrDre, so hopefully, we’ll figure it out together.

Discussion: Little Men, Little Wars - Share Your Star Wars Collection

Yeah, I thought that’s what it was - my uncle had that release and I remember discovering it as a kid and thinking it was the coolest thing ever. He later gave me the movie tapes from it but the box along with the documentary got lost somewhere and I couldn’t even find any proper pictures of it online - I was almost starting to believe I made it up.

44rh1n's "The Fellowship of the Ring" Extended Edition Color Restoration
Time

I’m wondering what the UHD LOTR will be sourced from. While it was shot on 35mm,it was finished digitally as a 2K DI,so going back to film would mean redoing the entire post production and believe me, it would not be as simple as rerendering CGI in 4K - even if they still had all the assets and project files, which is ridiculously unlikely, CGI is rendered in layers, so the compositing would have to be redone as well - basically it would take pretty much the full cost of doing post production on a very high budget movie,so more than likely, they will go to the original 2K DIs, upscale them and give them an HDR grade.
