Star Wars 4K77 - Regraded - No DNR
Time

Vladimon said:

So there are two different v1.4s out there? Now I wonder what it is I’ve seen. It’s definitely labeled v1.4 but seems to have so many flaws… o.O

No, unless you count the 4k and 1080p versions as different. The first thing Sanjuro did was color correct and reencode the existing 1.0 release, and this is called the regrade (which is what the original post is about). Then, he sent Williarob his work files, which allowed Williarob to apply those to the master files, and he released version 1.4, which is NOT a reencode. v1.4 is the version to have, no matter which resolution it’s in.

If it alters the colors it has to be a reencode by definition. The question is whether it’s a reencode of an already reencoded version, or whether it’s a reencode of the master file (so, how many generations of encoding has it undergone).

Yeah, I think it’s a reencode of v1.0, not the master files, but I just wanted to check here to make sure. I was having trouble finding the official v1.4 but found the regraded version quite easily.

My suggestion to Disney: noir crime series in Coruscant underworld
Time

I’ve been pining for a series or movie like this since 1313 was cancelled by the Disney buyout. I’ve been totally fascinated by the Coruscant underworld ever since season 2 of the Clone Wars, and was beyond ecstatic when Lucasfilm announced they were developing a series based on it. I’ll have to check out Coruscant Nights, though, it’s on my reading list but I’ve never gotten to it.

If anybody gets a chance, check out concept art of the 1313 series. In my opinion, it’s one of the great missed opportunities of Star Wars, along with Spielberg’s Return of the Jedi.

And two, while DeEd’s colors are good, they still occasionally suffer from the horrible color timing of the official BD’s creeping through in minor ways.

I agree, the worst parts of DeEd v2.7’s colors are, for me, the overbearing yellows in Mos Eisley and the extreme blues on the Death Star, especially in the Obi-Wan vs. Vader fight. 4k77 v1.4 tunes both of those down to better hues, for me, while still retaining the technicolor look that I believe the film should have.

List of most current preservation versions (harmy's despecialized, 4k77, 4k83)

Some colour tweaks were made for v1.3. It’s similar to v1.1 but I fixed a bunch of shots that didn’t look right to me. I think I brightened it up a bit too.

OK, thanks. I was trying to figure out if any improvements were made before I downloaded CatBus’s v1.1 GOUT-synced version, but I’ll stick with v1.3.

I can at least give you the most current versions of each:

4K83 - all listed below use Sanjuro’s color grade, though usually with minor adjustments by either ohteedee (no/minimal DNR) or SkyDude (medium/heavy/max DNR)

  • No DNR: v1.1 (1080p and 2160p MKVs)
  • Minimal DNR: v1.3 (1080p and 2160p MKVs) (this is effectively “no DNR” in that it targets just the chroma noise introduced during scanning, but it’s impossible to guarantee no film grain is affected, so it isn’t labeled as “no DNR”)
  • Medium DNR: v1.1 (2160p MKV and 1080p Blu-Ray)
  • Heavy DNR: v1.2 (1080p MKV and 1080p Blu-Ray)
  • Maximum DNR: v1.2.2 (2160p MKV)

I don’t know how many of the 4K83 DNR variants have made it out into the wild other than MySpleen. DNR work on the medium/heavy/max DNR releases by SkyDude, minimal DNR by ohteedee.

If I missed anything, someone please chime in to correct me!

Were there any color changes with 4k83 v1.3? I seem to recall that the color grading was refined from v1.1 noDNR, but I could just be imagining things.

If you could only remove one SE change...?
Time

I would remove Vader yelling “noooooooo” at the end of Jedi. It completely ruins the climax of the greatest movie saga ever. I can live with Jedi Rocks (Lapti Nek wasn’t that great of a song either). I can live with Hayden’s Force Ghost, as I can kind of understand George’s reasoning of putting him there. I can even live with Greedo shooting first if I had to. But I hate Vader’s “no.” Him being silent made the scene much more impactful.
