That could be due to the reel change in the middle of that scene.
Just so I get an understanding of TESB, how was this originally color timed for the Bluray release? I realise its dark and has a blue cast consistently throughout, but was it also graded shot by shot?
I’m trying to understand if it needs a single pass correction for the whole film or a shot-by-shot correction.
A reply from the source is always appreciated. Many thanks Harmy!
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.
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.
It’s a reel by reel color correction. So it’s effectively 6 color corrections for the whole film. It will be a big improvement over the existing 4k77 colors but not as accurate and fine tuned as a shot by shot.
So glad to hear this is still alive!
It’s also the intention to apply these LUTs to the DNR version when Williarob releases this in the near future.
Also as it will inevitably come up as a question - yes there is the green tint in the darker scenes of the film much like in the main 4k77 release. 😃
Hairy_Hen has done a new theatrical mix that he has just released as part of 4k77.
Maybe if people want to do their own color corrections they might kindly start their own thread about it.
I respect you position and your thoughtful response Towne, but it keeps happening.
I have no issues with noobs asking questions but there should be penalties for rudeness to keep the forum conversations respectful. Zero tolerance I say.
What’s the point of color correction if millions of fans don’t know how to download your releases?
So hard to upload on an outdoor torrent tracker and cloud storage?
Can someone ban this guy?
Was this tool ever released to the community? I’d very much like to try it out.
I wish there was a like button for posts. The green corridor looks great!
I love that you two are (sort-of) working together.
Out of curiosity, for your SE regrade will the output be LUTs to apply over the Bluray, or LUTs to apply to Neverar’s regrade of the Bluray?
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.
From memory DE3 will be using Neverar’s beautiful color treatment as the base.
Looks like its back up.
Dre, when you look at your grades side-by-side with Neverar’s, how would you summarise the difference in your words?
I calibrated my TV and watched last night and can happily say that this is the best version of Star Wars’ colors that we have available. It was a pleasure to watch.
Well done Neverar!
Doesn’t like cantaloupes. That’s hilarious!
Congrats again Neverar! A real achievement and years of work. Can’t wait to watch.
re sound, what soundtracks are you including? Bluray and 97SE cinema DTS?
