Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

No need to get so defensive towne32. I posed a question not a criticism and professed my love for DeEds. I’m not trying to start a 4k77 vs DeEd debate, and at no point did I suggest that TESB and ROTJ DeEds were redundant. I asked if it were worth working on these films ahead of Star Wars.

Maybe you should reread my posts and calm down keyboard warrior.

It’s a valid question - massive effort versus potentially diminishing return on Star Wars. If Harmy deems it worthwhile working on SW first ahead of TESB and ROTJ then he has my support.

And to your point about dirt/scratches etc, I would argue that these flaws outweigh the extreme sharpening and poor DNR on the bluray that removed a lot of detail.

I have to politely disagree with you there.

The bluray doesn’t contain any more detail than 4k77 with the exception of the area of the image that was cropped. The bluray is heavily sharpened which gives the illusion of additional detail but not any actual additional picture information.

I’ve sharpened the 4k77 footage myself as an experiment and it can be sharpened to match the bluray exactly.

So my question stands.

Hi Harmy,

I hope I’m not offending you by asking this, but I was wondering if doing a 3.0 1080p version of Despecialized for Star Wars has become redundant now that 4k77 has been released?

There is a DNR version of 4k77 about to released followed shortly after by color corrections which would effectively present a bluray quality color accurate release of Star Wars at 1080p.

Understanding the massive effort that you put into the DeEds of the original trilogy, would your time and efforts not be better spent on TESB and ROTJ Despecialized 3.0 instead?

With the exception of gaining some additional screen that has been cropped from 4k77, what other benefits do you see a DeEd 3.0 of Star Wars having over 4k77.

Again, not trying to rude as I’m a massive fan of your work. Just curious.

For Star Wars, yes. I will make some adjustments to it (I think he left some scenes a tad too dark) but mostly it will stay as is in Neverar’s version.

If you feel like tweaking the color of the walls in the Death Star conference room to be more blue/green as per the tech print it would be much appreciated.
