Dealing with People Selling Fan Projects

Basically, the only ones who can legally distribute anything Star Wars are Fox (ANH) and Disney (everything else), without something in writing from the appropriate party saying otherwise.

For most of us morality isn’t tied directly to legality so we don’t care about non-profit redistribution of what the rightsholders don’t want to be bothered redistributing - and they might even look the other way - but they don’t really have to. We’re fortunate that they have done so so far.

A plan: Despecialization. We know it can be done. Now the question is... Can <em>Molly</em> do it?

I read the script before commenting 😉

The bulk of it’s just Spline36Resize and AWarpSharp2… and I already use debanding filters on everything I encode, and ColorMatrix on everything I upscale, and a function to simplify the use of MDegrain2 is part of my arsenal (in fact I used it on an mp4 encode of the SSE of Star Wars, as well as on my DBZ encodes).

The current filter chain I seem to prefer for upscaling anime is a variant of nnedi3_rpow2(2).ColorMatrix(mode="Rec.601->Rec.709").Spline36Resize(1280,720).AWarpSharp2(depth=10)

Given that my laserdisc rip is made with poor quality equipment, I think I’d rather hold out for a better source than that before trying to despecialize Mewtwo Strikes Back… as big as the difference would be between a 1080p and 372i source, that would be exacerbated by a cheap laserdisc player and a bottom-of-the-line DVD recorder. 😦
