Han’s reflection has something to do with the lens they had to use for him going from a dark area to a bright one. But still, I find it distracting.
Yes, those shots are from Jedi.
You can see Luke walking behind Vader on this shot:

That’s not Luke, that’s the officer he tells to “Bring My Shuttle”/“Alert My Star Destroyer To Prepare For My Arrival”.

I just remembered (and just direct me to the post(s) if this was already addressed but) what happened with the icy breath on Hoth and the lightsaber glow during Luke and Vader duel?
I believe we as a forum voted against the breath since it wasn’t really worth the time it would take for Ady to do it. Same idea with the glowing.
Ady has mentioned wanting to reframe some shots, maybe that was just for the prequels, but part of the 720p end product is so he can use portions of a 1080p source if he wanted.
I almost wrote a Revisited EU story of how the Battle Droid ended up on Tatooine. Basically, the idea would have been Jabba bought a handful of B1’s as guards and ended up feeding them to the Rancor.

Just asking don’t get mad but is it possible for adywan to splice his footage into the 4k80 version of empire to updated his edits video quality?
I mean, anyone could do that if they want to have 90% of the shots in 720p and the rest in 4K.
Most of the effects like the Hoth transparency fixes were done in 97. The idea could work for RotJ, which besides Jedi Rocks and the Ending Celebrations is relatively untouched.
I haven’t seen it personally, but I understand that this distribution is probably easiest for Adywan and I trust that others will share it on ways that are easiest for them. It’s a fan edit, I’m not going to demand for the editor to make it easy.
I just had this thought when I was watching ANH:R last night. I understand that you are going to be changing some things between the current form of ANH:R and what will become ANH:R HD. Now what follows isn’t supposed to be inflammatory it was just a thought that I found interesting.
Would you consider the fact that you are tweaking with your version of ANH:R to be almost akin to the way Lucas tweaked with the standard ANH. We’re coming upon the same dilemma where the original ANH:R will not be available in an HD format, just like the OUT is not available in HD formats. You changed your mind about some decisions that were made and want this new HD version to be the definitive version of the films, yet there are people (like me) that would just like to see the current ANH:R but in HD.
I’m not sure this equates completely, but I feel like you could understand Lucas’s mindset on why the Special Editions exist in the first place. I also recall a popular argument for why the Special Editions are bad is because they supersede the Original Versions. That same thing is now going to happen with ANH:R. I’m not trying to be accusatory, I just thought this was something as a community that we could discuss.
The original version is not possible to rerelease in HD as it was. I forget why, I think the original assets are gone, but regardless, the original version can’t be rereleased. With the Theatrical Versions of the movies, they absolutely can be rereleased.
ANH:RHD is not ANH:R in HD, or ANH:R 2.0, it’s its own project, from scratch, just with the same purpose as ANH:R, and its inspiration. I think that alone justifies making changes.
I mean, the original effects were rendered at 480p and were done a decade ago 8 hard drives ago, that’s why he has to redo them.
But you’re absolutely right as this is basically a new edit, using the original edit as a guide. Ady has learned a lot in the last decade, so some things he didn’t do as well as he thought he could will be done just as he wants, and faster and better.
Yeah, the comparison isn’t quite the same.
It’s a reflection of them on the lens somehow due to the brightness of the image. Doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be painted out.
No one cares about Reddit, or how many accounts you or someone else creates.
Not yet. I’m also waiting for some kind soul to upload it elsewhere.
Adywan has said elsewhere that he cannot fix that.
Can someone PM me some captures of Leia’s hologram in Luke’s Garage from 4K77 really quick for my Visual Comparison research? Thanks.
I have been giving mod powers over the reddit by the main account you found. He created the sub but not the fake account, supposedly.
Back on topic, I love this imagery. I wonder if Ady could add the Falcon to Revisited.
That would, of course, necessitate the building of an ANH Falcon model… 😉
I’m attempting to help with the damage control.
It’s Usenet talk. I don’t follow it myself.
It was a reconstruction, IIRC. I don’t recall the resolution. Not sure why I didn’t preserve it…
I think it looks good… The only one I am a bit iffy on is the binary sunset.
Have it how you want it but after looking at the original theatrical footage and then the techni-disc and then when I saw the van-ling Dvd menu colors I decided the Dvd menu color was the best reference. You might not feel the same way but I think it’s the best reference for that shot an as is the massasi temple also.
The DVD menu colors were painstakingly recreated from the best sources according to a guy who worked on them, so I would personally default to them for reference. However, this isn’t a restoration, its the first step for a fan edit, so it’s up to how it makes Ady feel.
Now I might be able to watch the Special Edition without getting nauseous! It looks so good!
