Phantom Menace '99 - HD Theatrical Version by Chewielewis

Ah gotcha. Don’t get me wrong I love this movie…it has a weird charm for sure. But I think they set the release date and rushed to get it done and that’s why there’s lots of sloppy mistakes…at least that’s what it seemed like in the behind the scenes doc as shown in this pic.

Well, what are my chances of running into you again? I agree with the rushed production flaws, and I would like to add that I felt like they spent a little to much time without Anikin in the film considering he is the main character in the Prequels.

<em>Restoring the wondrously disastrous</em> <strong><em>Star Wars Holiday Special</em></strong>
Time

Alright everyone who is following this thread, I am back. I’m probably going to go missingno again very soon, but I just wanted to let you all that most of the Color Correction has been done and I started to implant HD bits and pieces from ANH into the special. Although life has been a fucking tremendous asshole to me lately, I will try to get my work done faster considering I am on break now. I hope everyone has been doing well, and I hope to see you all as soon as possible.

Best of wishes

Sid/Sishyo

It sounded odd to me as well when I found that bit of info here:

https://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=683662

By now [2010], ‘Attack of the Clones’ has been released uncut on DVD in Great Britain as part of the Prequel Trilogy Box.

Thanks for checking!

I was starting to get somewhere with my film reel restoration, but as I was about to pour some of my money into it, I see this post.

Well whaddya know…

<em>Restoring the wondrously disastrous</em> <strong><em>Star Wars Holiday Special</em></strong>

Hey guys, quick update regarding the restoration. My mental stability throughout editing and cleaning and merging the Holiday Special isn’t doing so well taking personal issues into consideration. Despite this, for the past 3 weeks, I have made considerable progress with the project. Life has been getting in the way of things, so my progress will be real slow for a month or so. If you are interested in helping out, please feel free to slide into my DMs with your thoughts.

Thanks - Sishyo

kk650's Regraded Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi V2 (blanket yellow tint removed from blu-ray)
Time

I like a few of the scenes with the blanket yellow tint, but it does kill a few shots and I definitely think it does make the film look a lot more aggressive in color terms. Can I see what the night time and interior scenes look like with and without the yellow tint, if it’s present there at all?

Sounds like you may already have it.
The Editdroid version is the broadcast master.
I am fairly certain the Zion Hybrid version (mentioned above) was taken from that source and a little editing was done to improve it, and the commercials were added back in.
Both those versions have threads on this forum which go into greater detail.

Oh damn, I need to look into this. Thanks for the info, at the moment I’m still getting used to using AviSynth and I’ll check out the other threads

How Many Versions are there of the AOTC
Time

trillary dump said:

Oh cool! It’s not a big change but certainly one that should be preserved. If you look into how much it would cost to clean and scan that reel I might just have to help fund it 😃

I have a bit of a strange update with you, but I still have a way to preserve the change. Throughout the past few day I was trying to see if I could get some restoration done on the reel, and I first went to a small theater to see if I could get my can played.

And, it was pretty bad. A lot of damage was done to the physical film, with most of the film having this weird marble effect. Fortunately, I could still see the order of all the sequences, and using that I can take scenes from the theatrical trailers to recreate that change.

I will try to do some digging into finding better reels of AOTC, but for now I can splice up the trailers to make the original scene. Also, I’m really sorry for the late reply, life got in the way of things but I should be free for a while now.

Ah gotcha. Do you know which section of the movie it is? Hopefully one that has the changes.

I believe it is the second 8 minute segment. I’ll check the Wiki to see if it has any changes.

Edit: The only change besides color grading would be several speeders being removed in the bounty hunter chase.

I own one of the original AOTC 35 mm film reels, so if I get in touch with one of my local theaters, I’ll do a capture for you guys to find the differences.

Oh wow how’d you acquire that?! Do you think you’d be able to get it scanned?

Aw crap man, this is just one sixteenth of the film, with most of it being crusty and ruined. I’ll see if I could get this bit restored and I’ll try to scan whatever I have.

so what´s with your deleted sw movie projekt?

Halted, at least unless someone more skilled than me would be able to clean up EP 4,5,6 deleted scenes, and possibly colorize the b&w scenes - about this, there is a nice tutorial on doom9, under avisynth usage subforum.

I’m definitely not skilled, but I could try to clean up the deleted scenes. Colorizing however, you would have to ask someone with much more expertise.

<em>Restoring the wondrously disastrous</em> <strong><em>Star Wars Holiday Special</em></strong>
Time

Fans of Star Wars know of the low budget flop known as The Star Wars Holiday Special and recognize it for it’s heavy impact on Star Wars culture. There exists many low resolution captures of the TV film, but at this point there exist no film reels, upscales, cleanups, or any format that is fit for average flatscreen TV viewing- if you are willing to indulge into the film, that is.

Well, like many avid Original Trilogy members, I’m going to attempt a restoration of The Holiday Special into 720p.

At the moment, I only have the Blu-Ray Boba Fett animation, and one crusty copy of the dreaded film itself. Any sources and pieces of media would help me with this time consuming project, and I shall keep you all updated.

Happy Life Day - Sishyo512

Update March 31

I have found several sources that I have in mind for using in my upscale.

1 - The 2011 Blu-Ray Star Wars Saga set - I shall take the Boba Fett upscaled animation & space shots taken from A New Hope.

2 - Tasjo 2013 WHIO - The highest quality tape without over edge & base for editing

3 - Zion Hybrid - The absolute highest quality I could find, with heavy edge

4 - Angrysun 2005 KCCI - Has the most genuine coloring that I have found so far

It would help if someone could help me find the Broadcast Master as I am having a few issues finding it. But for now those will be the sources I can use. I’ll manually cleanup all the tapes and keep the project as a Work In Progress.

Keep you all updated soon - Sishyo

Updates in the month of April

April 5th: I have received information about the actual Broadcast Master, along with HD versions of the trailers during the program. I have also started playing around with AviSynth which should come in handy when I get into editing.

April 27th: I have successfully combined HD elements of ANH with the Special. I successfully made the color pallet significantly better using the color bar screen in Avisynth, and I am now looking for programs to use for my editing. I am always open to any suggestions you may have, and this will most likely be the last post in the month of April.

Updates in the month of May and June

June 20th: The first few minutes have been significantly improved with color correction and as mentioned before, HD elements from the Blu Ray release of ANH throughout the month of May. I went through a few crisis’s in real life regarding family and education, but for now I got my life back on track. I’m probably going to do the same ol dissapearance for a few weeks, however progress should start to get gud during the summer.

June 26th: I got a new program to do some framing and editing of the Holiday Special called HitFillm express. I also got a new computer to do editing on, as my old on was being unresponsive and very slow. Below will be a comparison of some components I will now be using, and what their purpose is.


Below is The WHIO 1st Generation, and I use it for its color pallet


Below is the NTSC Broadcast Master, and I use it for frame timing and filling in empty frames


Below is the Blu Ray release of Star Wars: A New Hope, and I use this for whatever HD bits I can take from it since some scenes were reused in the Holiday Special.

Sorry if the the framing isn’t accurate, however these images should give you a sense of what these components serve. If I have any massive breakthrough with my progress I will certainly let you all know, but for now I’ll see you guys later

Thank you - Sid

This old guy ran this theater for a few decades and died a couple years ago, and his belongings were sold by his family. I bought the reel because I thought it would make a fine addition to my collection, but I never opened it mainly because I don’t have the technology to use it.

When I find it, if it’s in a usable condition then I will certainly scan and share the film with you guys.
