Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Despecialized Edition HD - V3.0
Time

Since v3.1 is inevitable, I’ll point out that the opening shot is from the SE. In 4K83, the TIE fighters are much bluer than the Star Destroyer. This change is not in the Viscomp. I believe this a power window fix and not due to the overall color grade. The fighters are blue in other shots in the same sequence where DEED uses 4K83. (FWIW, the GOUT also has blue fighters on a grey Destroyer.

Also, most 4K preservations use HEVC 10-bit SDR rather than 8-bit. Oohteedee should have plenty of information on this.

Unless we can coordinate a summit of project leads and get everyone to agree to a frame standard, it’s likely to continue to be a mess.

All new projects from TSWT forums are very likely to be theatrically synced. The only project that isn’t is 4K77, and version 2.0 is supposed to change that. Since Despecialized is (or was) using these projects as a basis, it seems to make sense to use the new standard.

the film is color timed to the 2004 versions (minus the botched lightsabers, those shots are replaced by the Blu-Ray).

Does this mean that the color is HDTV matched to the Blu-Ray in those shots or that they just use the Blu-Ray? IIRC, the HDTV version uses the 1997 recomposites, just with messed up color. The Blu-Ray uses new digital cores.
