Of course the OT has always had bad bluescreen/greenscreen along with the matte lines until fixed by revisited. The thing that I am still noticing, at least in ANH:R was the almost cardboard cut out look of some fx and objects. For example, many of the explosions in the revisited battle of Yavin have absolutely no 3d shape to them and look and in a way cheesy. The blue TIE's just make that cardboard cut-out look worse. The PT, even though filled with terrible CGI, doesn't have this problem.
Ron, that's looking great. I can see how much work your putting into this. The only thing that bothers me is the reusing of previous footage, but I guess there's no other way to do it.
So maybe Coruscant was meant to be in ROTJ:
What!?! You must be crazy!!! Actually, I don't know if I can even get any SD footage. But remember that the deleted scenes are SD, so I don't know if we can go HD anyway.
They'll look fine in 720p HD as long as I can figure out how to rip the bluray properly so I don't keep getting annoying compression artifacts. I could keep trying to rip, but I'm not sure which mt2s file has the deleted scenes.
I'd love to show all you guys the sandstorm scene when it is completed. I am currently color correcting it followed by a lengthy frame-by-frame process of removing dust, scratches, etc. from the picture. I have perfected the process enough to get rid of the possible randomization that can occur while cleaning the footage. You just have to be very handy with the clone stamp, spot healing brush, and magic eraser tools to do so.
Well since there's gonna be a second round of voting, here are some images from the wishlist that caught my eye. They would be a LOT of work for the animators.....but would also be awesome additions to the films.
Now, that's the kind of stuff we need. If the animators could pull off stuff like that, I might actually survive watching ROTJ after the PT. Seriously, the PT star wars fans I know pretty much don't like the OT because they lack that.
Yeahp! I'm a bit ashamed of it now looking back, the colour is real screwed up and I couldn't really make a face change for Sidius work in the lighting for this scene, in all it was rushed and based off another trailer I'd seen, to make matters worse it starts 26 seconds in, that's why I'm making a completely new trailer once I get this blu ray going
Looks awesome! Best trailer I've ever seen for TPM.
I have to agree with darth_ender here. I'm fine with a DVD quality right now. You can allways just release a bluray version later, plus you might be able to change things. This edit definately sounds like something a-lot of people would enjoy!
This is what I was thinking. George Lucas WILL be making a live-action television series focused on events between the PT and OT. If an edit Ep II could be Ep I and an edit of Ep III could be Ep II, you could (when the tv series ends a long time away from now) create an Ep III out of that. This would remove TPM totally and could help to bridge the PT with the OT creating a better saga. Just a thought...
Here's Luke working on his lightsaber in the proper colors!
Hope they're available soon. Hey do you know where those discussions could be?
I'm not sure how to colorize film, but you can make it look very good if you have accurate refference material. The problem with all 3 of the colorizations of It's A wonderful Life is that they didn't have color photos of the sets and people. The main problem with any colorization is that the colorized footage lacks varied colors. For example, a person's skin is made not only of different shades, but of many different colors. If anyone wants to take the time, it is possible to do it frame by frame with photoshop. Right now I'm going through ANH:R for accurate frames to compare for color-correction of the deleted scenes.
