whoaa looks great!! I intended to start doing this myself by never got around to it. Thanks!!
I was wondering how that presentation went! Glad to see they’re interested in your restoration methods.
While you have their interest, maybe arrange a full screening of the film with a bunch of Fox/Disney people?
Hey thanks Poita, but the second link is from reel 6 of the Special Edition 😉
Exciting! Maybe an idea to start a separate thread for the V3.0 version?
He’s using the royal “we” of course 😉
Yes! There is literally nothing in their way now to release a theatrical release of any of the original trilogy films. Plus, we can have our beloved FOX fanfare intro back for the next SW films.
So basically, we are all Jon Snow at this point.
At least it will still exist for future generations, which was rather the point of the endeavor.
I doubt it.
Well, if those rumors about Disney buying 21st Century Fox are true, then all will be well…
Any news/progress on the project?
If it would’ve been a definite no, I think we would’ve heard from Mike.
If they were still in negotiations, nobody would be allowed to talk about it, let alone confirm the possibility of a restoration.
So my best hope is that they’re still in negotiations.
So she basically said she wouldn’t alter George’s SE any further, but she said nothing regarding the restoration of the originals.
Of course that was a joke, what were you thinking? Mike’s sold all of his stuff to pursue his dream of working as a rodeo clown.
Seriously, why would you even do that?
Damnit, whoever is ruling the Universe, please give this guy a break!
Stay safe, Poita.
Awesome. ill you still do Williarob’s prores version later on?
The ESB Grindhouse was not GOUT sync’d. I still have the prores version of the ESB Grindhouse somewhere, is there a way to create a LUT from your settings, or a way I can reproduce them to make a new Encode with your color tweaks?
interesting turn of events…
Do I understand correctly that the German print will primarily be used to replace damaged shots from the UK print?
That sample looked quite impressive.
Hope your daughter will be well Poita, important stuff first.
he told me that he had already deleted all his external hard drives containing Legacy in order to make room for “Lunar” (his codename for the new project). Apparently the show lasted for 2 seasons and he was going to need all the space he had…and more…for his endeavor.
Are you using the TN1 ISO of Grindhouse ESB as a source or do you have access to something with less compression?
Concerning black bars, if you leave them out, won’t that leave more space for the movie, data wise?
Good luck with your treatment Poita, take care.
All reels of the UK print are now scanned and with Harmy.
Just out of curiosity and in case I missed this, is Harmy (and perhaps others) going to take care of the rest of the restoration of the print(color correction, dust & scratch removal, etc), or will he only be using parts of it for his Despecialized Edition?
Poita, I just donated 30 bucks. I know it’s not much, but it’s what I can miss.
Maybe lock this thread for good measure?
this guy must’ve either been a troll or some jumped-up conspiracy nut.
Seriously, of all the restoration projects out there, this is probably the one I’m looking forward to the most at the moment.
that last picture (albeit a quick grade) looks stunning!
