Info Wanted: 4K versions vs. DEED (Despecialized Editions) - which is better and why?
Time

There’s nothing faded about the print used for Return of the Jedi 4K. It is an answer print
that was 1 generation off from the negative, and has rarely ever been projected.

From the source:

99.9% of all frames used in this project are sourced from one original 1983 35mm
Eastman print. The remaining 175 frames were sourced from an alternate 35mm print.
All frames were scanned, cleaned, stabilized, and color corrected in 4k (anamorphic)
from 35mm prints. The primary print used is NOT a release print but a special screening
print struck directly from the original film negative in 1983. It is presented with
it’s original film grain intact which is two generations less than what a theatrical
release print would have and only one generation from the original negative.

<strong>4K83</strong> - Released
Time

All the home video versions look completely different due to being mastered for television.

The theatrical look is an attempt to make the film look what it looked like in the theater.

Two completely different goals for the projects.

It says so right in the information file:
Color Timing: The color correction has been done on a reel-to-reel basis (mostly).
This preserves the color variations from shot to shot as they would have been seen
in theatres in 1983. A few deviations from the reel-to-reel correction have been made
to better conform to a TV/monitor environment, plus other minor adjustments. For the
most part it is a reel-to-reel color correction.

Star Wars Documentaries on Film to be scanned. Donations welcome. (a WIP)
Time

Haven’t seen the Making of Temple of Doom, but have both the Great movie stunts,
and the Making of Raiders of the Lost Ark on 16mm scanned. Those will come out
at some point.

Not a fan of Temple of Doom, so probably won’t look very hard for that, then
again, not sure if it was on film.

All 3 of the first Indiana Jones movies have ‘Making of’, and all them
are currently on myspleen.

Despecialised help required for IT idiot
Time

At this rate you will hit 30 posts pretty quickly. Then all you have to do is wait 2 more months, and then you contact the person that will burn the discs for you.

Moderator Edit : No. Just no. That isn’t the service that is being offered at all - it was a kind gesture by a fellow member (Captain_Danielsan) here who has gone out of his way to try and help others who don’t have a print-to-disc printer.

It is simply a disc printing service to help fellow members have a nice/professional looking set.
