Okay, so just to update, I’ve found out that this old Windows application called VirtualDub has a DeLogo filter and judging from what I’ve seen of it, it actually works. However, it’ll probably be about a year or so before I get a Windows laptop.
I’ve just recently got this idea. It’s the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy in the style of the Original Theatrical Versions of the Original Trilogy. It’s basically a what-if scenario with the Prequels, where the CGI effects would be either removed or replaced with stop-motion effects and/or puppets. I’m not sure if this is even possible, but I think it’s one hell of a concept.
I would love to see your work on these deleted scenes. I’m actually thinking about my own restoration for my Ultimate Edition of the entire saga, including the upcoming Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker, and feel like I need a project like this for reference. For the deleted scenes that are given two stars, I’ll try to clean them up as much as I can. Of course, for those given three or four stars, I should have an easier time cleaning those. The scenes given only one star, I won’t use at all. I don’t really need those scenes anyway, I just need the ones that have two to five stars. Anyway, can’t wait to see how you did on these deleted scenes.
Okay, thank you.
These posts don’t say whether it can match the colors of two videos, so I had to ask. This might also be because of my autism making me have to know for sure whether a program can do certain things or not.
Please just wait for the next DrDre’s tool: it will automatically restore deleted scenes, integrate them into the movie, upscale them to 4k and recolorize them in HDR.
And besides, this tool will be compatible with Mac OSX.
PS: it even seems that it will be able to possibly fix The Last Jedi.
Can this tool match the colors of a video with those of another video? That is what I want to do with the deleted scenes and the footage that I already have.
I’ve decided to wait for DrDre’s next tool, which, as ZigZig said, will automatically restore deleted scenes, integrate them into the movie, upscale them to 4k and recolorize them to HDR. According to ZigZig, this tool will be compatible with MacOS, so the next tool seems like my only option. Could you please tell me when it will be ready? Thank you.
Hello. So excited for this to be ready. I was originally going to wait for Harmy to do Respecialized Editions of ESB and ROTJ, but now that I’ve found a reconstruction of the Special Edition of ROTJ, I’ve decided to get this version instead. This also means that I’ll go with Adywan’s reconstruction of the Special Edition of ESB. Could you please let me know when it’s ready? Thank you.
Well, since “Forest of Pikachu*” wasn’t originally intended for the series, it won’t be part of the series. However, I do intend on including it as a bonus, complete with the OP and eyecatch in the style of Episodes 1-38.
*4Kids called this episode “Pikachu’s Goodbye”.
Okay, I have finally extracted all the RAR files from the Despecialized Edition of the first movie. The application that helped me is called UnRarX, and the final result was exactly as I wanted it to be: 2.35:1. I would like to thank SnooPac for providing me the link for UnRarX in a private conversation. Without SnooPac, I would never have been able to extract the RAR files in the first movie. Now, I know what to do when I extract the RAR files from ESB and ROTJ.
I believe the VHS version actually has a different ED than my TV version. I want to say the one on the tape is “Pocket ni Fantasy” and the one on TV is “Nyarth no uta”.
I can hotlink my MP4 privately, but not here (forum rules).
It’s all right, I plan on using “Fantasy in My Pocket” at the end of the episode for a Pokémon fan project I’m working on called, “The Original Intended Run”. This will be my attempt at making the Indigo League arc as it was originally intended to run. The first 38 episodes will be exactly as they originally aired on TV Tokyo. As for the rest of the episodes, the footage themselves will remain the same, but the opening theme, as well as the eyecatch will be in the style of the first 38 episodes. I will also try to follow the intended broadcast schedule as closely as I can. The Original Intended Run will also include the movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back, as it was originally supposed to be, meaning no prologue. However, the prologue will be shown as a separate video, which I’ve created using the footage from the Original Theatrical Version of the movie, as well as footage from the English dub of the ten-minute short added to the movie for the Kanzenban version. I call this twenty-minute short, “The Birth of Mewtwo”, after the radio drama of the same name. I have already finished the Original Intended version of the movie, as well as The Birth of Mewtwo. I don’t know when I’ll get around to doing the episodes themselves, but I’ll let everyone know once I do get to them.
Then, I guess the only way left is to get an ISO image of each movie.
That was the problem with iZip. I couldn’t drag the file into the folder I wanted.
Sounds to me like you’re either missing a file or two, one/multiple ones are corrupted or incomplete downloads, or you’re somehow performing the unpacking process incorrectly.
What programs have you tried using, and what’s the process you used with these programs?
-WinRAR for Mac
I tried to follow the instructions as closely as I could, extracting Part 1, but with The UnArchiver and Dr. UnArchiver, I always got an error on Part 6. WinRAR for Mac wouldn’t open. As for iZip, it did, indeed, work, but the problem with iZip was that I didn’t know how to move the finished file to my hard drive.
It was a series of RAR files. I tried every application possible, but there was always an error. iSFV said that nothing was wrong with my files, but I still got an error with every application I tried.
I downloaded the 20GB release of Episode IV, but couldn’t extract it because no applications worked, so I had to download somebody’s re-encoding of each movie.
I am using my MacBook Air. I guess the cropping must’ve been due to some kind of error, maybe.
Well, at least it’s possible to filter the logos out. Also, I’ve got a copy of the episode without any logos at all. This was ripped from the VHS release of Pikachu’s Summer Vacation, the short film shown before the first Pokémon movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back. I’ll just replace the VHS rip with the TV rip once I get around to it. Thank you.
The primary source of the ‘despecialized’ versions are from the Blu Ray videos. If you are looking for versions of any of the Star Wars Theatrical cuts that have more picture information, you’re best bet is to look for the fan-made 4K versions–‘4K77’, ‘4K83’, and ‘Renegade Grindhouse’ of ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ as ‘4K80’ is in production. These 4K versions are available in UHD and 1080p. The sole source of these versions are made up of scans from multiple 35mm theatrical prints. Although there is cropping in these versions, too, the final releases do have more picture information than the current Blu Ray versions.
Then, should I just upscale the version from the 2006 DVD print?
Um, what are you talking about? Star Wars wasn’t shot in CinemaScope. Where exactly have you heard that Star Wars was filmed in CinemaScope?
IMDb said so, 2.35:1. If that doesn’t prove it, I don’t know what does.
The Despecialized Edition seems to be cropped from the movies’ original CinemaScope ratio because I noticed that some of Greedo’s subtitles in Episode IV, as well as some parts of the credits went off the edges of the screen. I am a person who likes to watch everything in its original aspect ratio, so do you know where I can find a Despecialized copy in the original CinemaScope ratio? Thank you.
Hello. I am wanting to make a fansub of the Pokémon anime as part of my rebellion against censoring animation. Right now, I am just focusing on the Indigo League arc. For the first 37 episodes, I plan to use the Original Broadcast Versions (OBV). Of course, Episode 38 only aired once, so it’s already in its OBV. As for the rest of the Indigo League episodes, I plan on recording them off of Amazon Japan. However, there’s one episode that I am confused about when it comes to Amazon Japan and that is the Christmas Special, Jynx’s Christmas*, which was originally intended to be Episode 39, but was delayed due to the epileptic incident caused by Episode 38. Bulbapedia claims that Amazon Japan uses the re-edited version from Pokémon Smash, which changes Jynx’s skin from black to purple. However, I have looked on Amazon Japan and the screenshot for the episode clearly shows Jynx in her original design, how she’s supposed to be in that episode. This is why I am creating this topic so that we are able to see this episode how it originally aired on TV Tokyo, without any on-screen logos whatsoever. If you could tell me where I can find this episode that way, then that would be great. Thank you.
*When 4Kids dubbed this episode, they called it, “Holiday Hi-Jynx”.
Quick question, and I’m not asking this to be mean or to bully you in any way, I think the answer will genuinely help us to better communicate with you in the future - is English your first language?
English is, indeed, my first language, although I do want to learn Japanese someday because my entire life revolves around Japan. In other words, Japan is my absolute favorite country in the whole wide world.
I mean, come on - even if you thought a tool that will automatically restore footage and edit it back into the movie for you was possible (which kinda makes sense considering you still seem to think someone will just do all that work for you despite multiple people telling you multiple times that it won’t happen and you need to learn how to do it yourself if you want it done), the Last Jedi quote had to be a dead giveaway…
I don’t think that anymore. As for the tool, I was just curious if I had to do the processes manually or not.
Oh, I see.
