There was a preview of it, which still needs some corrections, but after those are fixed, a final version should be coming out.

Is there an estimated release date?

No. It’s done when it’s done.

Anything could crop up that could delay its release so the team doesn’t want to give any dates.

That’s fair, I was just curious.

While poking around for the 1080p 4k77 releases, I stumbled across one that was labeled “Grindhouse.”
The “official” releaed ones all mention 35mm and no-DNR.
Anyone know what version this is? I don’t recall seeing a mention of a 4k77 Grindhouse.

Someone made a custom Grindhouse version with the permission of the 4K77 team.

Can anyone tell me which is the best quality Laerdisc sourced rip of the 1997SE? I need one for comparative purposes, I already have the “high quality” TB release that is found on Myspleen. But that’s from a territorial broadcast and I would like a 1997 LD version for comparison.

Thanks!

Well, there’s althor’s captures which he cleaned up and anamorphically resized and another guy on MySpleen whose username I can’t remember ATM captured the Japanese LDs.

The progress is slow unfortunately.
There were ongoing problems with the scanner. The focus motor was failing, and then after that was repaired, we had another problem that required the entire optical block to be sent away. That caused a build up of commercial jobs waiting to be scanned, which pushed the SE scan back.
It is still in progress, but I don’t currently have an ETA, the scanner is running 24/7 to try and catch up with the backlog.

You good, fam. Take as long as you need.

Terminator 2 Full Frame Color Correction (ON HIATUS)
Time

I know I missed the deadline, but unfortunately, I’m gonna have to put this project on hiatus for a while. Not permanent, it’s just that I’ve had a bit of a rough month and I feel like I’ve bitten off a bit more than I could chew at the moment. So I’m gonna just put this aside for a little bit, do some other things, then when I’ve got a bit more experience and maybe a little bit of help, then I’ll come back and finish this. I’m sorry I said I’ll post something by the end of April only to put the project on hold. If any of you are interested in the project, PM me and I can give you whatever progress I’ve made so far. Again, really sorry about this, I just felt like I should stop teasing you all with delays and just be honest.

I’ve color corrected the first reel of poita’s 1997 SE scan, which also serves as a color reference next to the technicolor references for my regrade. Here are the Tantive IV shots and a few Tatooine shots as a bonus:

That looks wonderful, but just a question: If it’s the 1997 SE, how come you didn’t match the colors to the Laserdisc? I’m not complaining, it looks great, but just a bit curious.

Because the laserdisc colors look nothing like the theatrical colors of the 1997 SE, which was color timed using a technicolor print as a reference.

Oh, was it? I didn’t know that. Thanks for the clarification 😃

Okay, I kind of lied about this being done for good. I made a mistake when implementing the selective color corrections in some scenes. When adjusting the colors for scenes with lots of flames, I accidentally forgot to check if work was needed in the explosion that occurs after they leave the Tech Noir, and the explosion and burning photo in the future flashback. After looking at these scenes, I feel I should’ve done some selective work in them as well.

Does anybody who already PM’d me care about this, or do you not want to bother? (the changes won’t be massive by any means, I just think the flames look too bright and yellowy in some shots)

I mean, if you feel there’s room for improvement, then go for it. I’m interested 😃
