@adywan someone told me if you have the hdr or Dolby vision metadata from the original trilogy it can be added to your fanedit but the only thing I wasn’t sure on was would your new footage complicate that or not just wondering. because if it doesn’t I’m surprised you and nobody knew about this I didn’t know about until yesterday.

HDR is really just a different way of encoding the colors. Before OLED and Laser Projectors, there was a range to blacks. It basically expands that range. Someone skilled at the conversion could take any of his changes and render those shots in HDR. The only way to get true HDR is to shoot it in HDR. All old film was not designed for that and it will be an approximation. Some films can be scanned from the Original Negative and glean out some extra data when scanned as HDR. The Star Wars films are heavy on FX which really limits things. The scans we have were not scanned with HDR in mind, but with 3D in mind. So converting Adywan’s edit could be just as good as the Lucasfilm HDR version.

At least the way I understand it. You can discuss the color space and all the technical details, but at the root you have to have an original image that is suitable for HDR. Other have done HDR conversions of non-HDR sources.

So how can the lucasflim’s hdr grade be added to it then now I’m even more confused?

It can’t. Please stop.

Hello, I sent you a DM regarding your Edits of The Phantom Menace and others

What are you talking about and why did you bring it up in this thread?

I think I know why he probably thought adywan gets so many messages that he didn’t see it.

And adding to this thread bothers thousands of people and won’t make Adywan answer him any faster.

What source was used to create the ANH_REVISITED_SD_x264.mp4?

The DVD-9 source if Im not mistaking.

Yeh, it was the PAL DVD-9

I’m famous on here for being able to spot differences in screenshots. I’ve made it my actual hobby. I don’t know what you’re getting at by posting a link to two identical screenshots of the Fox logo save for some compression.

This small topic possibly has popped up some time before, but I wanted to ask to be sure.
I’m assuming there will be no HDR pass on this, or any other Revisited Trilogy Edits?

I know I shouldn’t bring this up again but, I did just realize something. Since you’re using Topaz to improve the existing 2011 Blu-Ray for ANH:R HD, why not attempt the same for ESB:R?

That is if you want to do it, as it is your choice and not mine, or anyone else’s.

(In some of the shots where Leia turns around to rescue Luke from Cloud City, the lighted buttons in the Falcon’s cockpit bleeds together.)

Didn’t you just ask this?

I don’t understand what the point was of Lucas adding that Dugg walking down the stairs in Jabba’s Palace. It was only for two seconds. Maybe it was to add something to an otherwise empty space?

The rest of the palace is asleep. It’s completely and utterly pointless.

Adywan, since you’re removing the two SE shots in the “look sir, droids!” scene partially because they use the ROTJ helmets, does that mean you’re going to replace the SE shot of the Stormtroopers facing Han in the hangar bay? I really hope you don’t. The fact that Han is stopping dead in his tracks yelling, because he sees an entire room of hundreds of Stormtroopers facing him, rather than having it just be a normal-looking room with only a few troopers, works much better because I think that makes the scene play out a little funnier and much more effectively.

I mean, in the original version it’s a dead end, which is extremely funny.

Which do you prefer, and why?

The original because it doesn’t look like a crap copy and paste job.

And because my entire online persona is based on releasing the original versions.

Why is it that many of the changes were so poor with continuity between the old and the new stuff? Having the wrong Stormtrooper helmets during the “Look sir, droids!” scene, having new open windows in Cloud City in some shots, but not in others, even if they’re supposed to be the same ones, having Jabba’s palace door apparently be bigger on the outside than it is on the inside, etc.

Because the Special Editions were done after-hours between projects with no guiding hand other than Lucas himself who only seemed to care about the shot being “fixed” at the moment and not the shots around them. Remember that Lucas only wanted to see if they could do something he wanted to do in the prequels, and if they could he just moved on. Then there’s things like the SE Boba Fett’s both having wrong pieces of armor because BOTH scenes were “that sounds cool, let’s shoot that this afternoon” and they were done years apart (December 1994 for ANH and July 1996 for RotJ)

One thing that is very frustrating about some of George’s changes to the movies is how they are made in isolation, without concern for continuity between shots. For example, I get why he wanted Jabba’s palace door to look bigger, so that it’s more grand-looking, but he didn’t account for the interior shots where R2 and 3PO enter the palace. For the uninitiated, it would look like either the door suddenly got smaller, or the characters suddenly got bigger. Thankfully, Adywan is keeping the original shot.

Of course in this case it’s JJ’s change, not George’s

What do you mean? JJ Abrams hasn’t touched the OT films.

But JJ’s team added the bunk to the Falcon and the invisible room to the Emperor’s Throne Room, they’re saying.

He or she was referring to the change on the ROTJ blu ray where George made Jabba’s Palace doors bigger on the outside. Then they replied that George didn’t make the change, JJ did. Considering Abrams wasn’t even associated with SW yet I found the comment very confusing.

They were changing the topic back to the JJ changes (Falcon bunk/Secret room).
