My ROTJ fixes & changes

4throck said:

So here’s the cave scene with some editing and color correction:

Main changes:

  • blurred and changed the color of the cave background behind Luke,
  • new the cave exterior mattes (based on material from the web)

you should remove the visible waiting r2 in the cave before he comes out.

Sunset at Jabba’s palace:

  • I’m using a background and Banthas I found on the web, with some stock dust footage.

looks fantastic.the banthas are moving?

Desert Barge:

  • added slight camera movement to imply motion. Improves green-screen a lot (Han and Luke)
  • fixed flipped Leia and Jabba shot

Just ideas that might be useful for others. I’ll share more over time.

you should do a visuell list with pics from all your changes.
would like to see the complete movie when finished.

edit: you should join here with your delted scenes

Sorry I meant to do that!

Hello Jambe,

I sent you a private message.


Then surely he was notified of it. Why tell him here?

Well, because I was not sure of that. I was afraid that he had turned off notifications for private messages. It was most unlikely that he had turned off notifications for non-private topics, instead.

i´m afraid he wouldn´t response.
i´ve never receive a answer…😦

Here are some suggestions to work with now that the eyebrows has been settled.

Throughout the entire scene when C-3PO and R2 are in front of Jabba’s palace gate, overhead stagelights and the other side of the set are visible in the reflection of C-3PO’s head.

Most particularly in this close up shot where not only the stagelights but also the film crew are clearly reflected from C-3PO’s head

When C-3PO and R2 appear in Jabba’s throne room, C-3PO goes down a flight of stairs with R2 following him but keeps on going. Then when he is approaching Jabba, R2 appears from the lower right corner.

Also, when C-3PO AND R2 are approaching Jabba R2 has his third leg out; then when it cuts to the next shot it’s no longer deployed.

During the Sarlacc battle when R2 bumps into C-3PO you can see several wires actually pulling him as he falls.

The best solution would be to erase it. In this scene when Luke and Leia swing from the sail barge to the skiff, the birthmark is not visible here which shows that this is a stunt double.

When the Emperor arrives in the second DS and is speaking to Vader and says “Everything is preceeding as I have forseen” they are walking past a row of grey-suited officers. Then when it cuts to a wide-angle shot, there’re now in front of rows of stormtroopers.

When Han and Lando are talking to each other in the rebel hanger right before they depart, Lando’s gun belt across his chest changes sides during this scene showing that these shots were flipped.

When Han is running from the shield generator that’s about to explode yelling ‘MOVE!’, his reflection is visible behind him on what appears to be either a plexiglass or camera lens.

good catch.i never would see this.

Here’s something new to v3…

Alternate bits of Ripley and Parker’s argument. Color correction isn’t final but probably fine. I also wanted to test the 1080p grain overlay on top of standard def footage. It actually did a lot less than I thought it would.

Grain ver.!AkdXUAQR!QSd2MG743bQP41olokBUjg9u50IOAAFsF8f197BGjm0

No grain ver.!4odTGKob!K8LPbyOSCrUPcQd1xV-hKGAV8xvhZOOEJSjlKI-PSvA

i´m not disappointed.wonderfull…😃
release time? 😉

This is my favorite fan docs on the making of ANH; though I admit I haven’t seen all that many. As of 1-2019 the second half of the doc can be found on YouTube.

The first half however can be found on Videa.

For how long? Who knows! That’s the internet!

this is why jambe davdar makes his trilogy with star wars begins,building empire and returning to jedi.
all find here:

The theatrical colors of the Star Wars trilogy

Resurrect this old thread because I don’t think there is a need to start a new one…

Well, “ages” ago I was trying to regrade the WOWOW recording; the color target was a set of screenshots taken from the theatrical print (please do not ask me which one, because I simply can’t remember!); I used RaiTre recording as color reference, with few settings more to go closer to the target.

Top WOWOW, bottom WOWOW regraded:

do note that Luke in the jail corridor should not be so magenta; probably it’s due to out-of-sync problems, and the color macthing should have picked up a magenta laser (probably?)

yello is you favorite color 😃
