I found a compression glitch (minute 00.20:34)on the 4K version
It would be nice if it’s corrected in the future, this is probably one of the best 4K preservations of the original film I’ve ever seen, My favorite after the 4K83 project.
Hostmaster, I’m not seeing the compression glitch in either my copy of the 1080p or 2160p versions. Might it be an issue with your software you’re viewing it on? Try MPV player, it works great.
Anyone who would like to become a member of The Star Wars Trilogy forum, please PM either Stotchy or myself. 😃 Thank you everyone for your interest and support!
I have searched the world over for days trying to find a copy of this that’s not on a restricted forum. If anyone has a referal code for trilogy or a link to this download, please let me know in PMs. Thanks.
This release is available on the Star Wars Trilogy forum.
Very pleased to share this with the community. Hope you all enjoy!
AWESOME! That is what we call in the prop community a Graflex 3 cell Folmer. Only the Folmers had the “New York” stamping on the bottom of the flashgun all the later models had “N.Y.” A very special prop right there gentlemen, just revealed by Poita!
This is what it looked like before the D-ring and Kobold installation: https://bit.ly/2PkPT7c
This is what it looked like before grips and clamp card were installed: https://bit.ly/2MDKISV
It most definitely does! That’s what I was hoping to see as well as the profile of the black grips better! 😄
Thank you so much for that high res photo, Poita! That detail is unbelievable! And to think that a full restoration will be even sharper! I don’t know how you do this, Poita, but this is incredibly fascinating to me. 😃
Oh, my gosh that’s an unbelievable result, Poita! Out of curiosity, would you be able to do a quick grain management and clean-up on frame 14988 of the lightsaber in the snow? Have always wanted to see what details on the hilt are laying behind the grain/dirt. Thanks!

THIS hasn’t been CCd yet??? 😮 This looks mind-blowingly AMAZING already!! 😄 Thank you for sharing this Poita!! Well done!
So you do have a Netflix version of Fellowship? I thought you said you didn’t.
Wonderful, Dre. So, is this the balanced version, or…?
Looking mighty good, there, Dre. 😉
So when’s it going to be ready, Dre? 😃
jerclayv2, it looks like Dre is either working on reel 2 or 3 here so, he’s got quite a bit of work left ahead of him. I’m thinking this may not be ready for release for a good long while yet.
Hi Dre, glad to see a new post here! So, these are shots you’re using to create your own color graded shots, or…? Just curious.
44rh1n, I PMd you with regard to using Resilio Sync. The only question is where we can use it, because (correct me if I’m wrong) I don’t think we’re allowed to post those types of links right here in the forums.
Incredible workmanship, 44rh1n, this is awesome news! I am not familiar with the Spleen. Doesn’t it require you to be invited by someone already a member? Is it not possible to offer this anywhere else that is more accessible than there? Many thanks!
I agree with Dre: all good ideas! I would also be interested to hear your take on what the proper steps are in doing a film preservation in general. This whole subject is a very interesting and intriguing process, and I would be grateful for any insight or explanatory video you might be able to share whenever you are available, Poita.
Can’t wait to see the results! Thank you you two! Much obliged!
Here’s the thing with white though, it reflects other colors. Stormtroopers are only white in white light, and if the light reflected back at them from walls and such is white. If I put a stormtrooper in a room with green walls, the stormtrooper will be green(ish). In the case of Tantive IV, the walls are slightly bluish green, there’s red light coming from the walls, and the lighting is yellowish, so the stormtroopers won’t be white ever. They will be more yellowish, if they are directly under a light, they will be more pink if they are standing near one of the wall lights, and they will be more bluish green everywhere else.
While I dislike the result those variables cause, I understand what you’re saying. 😃
The walls weren’t white, so how are they supposed to look a true white on set?
Dre, we all know stormtrooper armor is pure white. In the YouTube link, one can see the walls are not perfectly white and neither are the stormtroopers—they look the same. It seems to follow then that if one were standing in person on set that both the stormtroopers and the walls would have been a truer white than what is portrayed in the YouTube video and stormtrooper production photo. That being said, I would say your color grading is not as extreme as these examples (which is a good thing). 😃
isn’t it overall too bright? and aren’t some specific shots a bit too bright? for example, from the second to the third shots in the bottom row there’s a big difference, and the third shot looks a bit too bright, imo. you may even be losing some detail. or is it supposed to be that way?
If it were darkened I have a feeling the blacks and shadow details in Vader’s costume might be crushed/clipped. Plus, the set IS all white so light reflection would be considerable making it seem too bright. Also, we have grown accustomed to the dark blu-ray color grade.
I’m interested to hear what Dre thinks, but what if the 1st and 2nd shot on the 4th row were slightly lightened and the last shot was slightly darkened in order to arrive at a happy medium? Again, hard to say for sure if it even needs adjusting since I’m not seeing Dre’s color grade in live-action.
