Preserving the...<em>cringe</em>...Star Wars Holiday Special (Released)
Time

Not sure if anyone else noticed this, but Rifftrax.com just released a “NEW high-ish quality VHS Transfer” of the SWHS. I wonder what version they used.

Have you not seen the broadcast master EditDroid gave us a couple years ago, Zion? It has about 4 times the resolution of that Rifftrax clip.

To play Devil’s Advocate for a moment, he probably just jumped in the thread and asked a silly question without reading the preceding posts…which would make him more lazy than asshole. Still not great, but lots of people (unfortunately) do that.

What? What did you do with the TV’s Frink we all know and love? Hope he’s okay.

Here’s a shot from the Tarkin/Leia confontation:

Why does this shot stick out so much from the rest? I think all the others look just amazing, but this one just seems wrong?

I checked the frames, and you’re right, it’s too yellow:

Wow, I’m glad I said something, 'cause that looks great!

GOUT Technicolor regrade (single pass) (* unfinished project * - lots of info)
Time

This is all quite surprising Dre! It appears that all the reels of the GOUT had the same amount of fading, and that only one color correction was applied to fix it. I’m so surprised that they didn’t re-balance all the shots, but what you’re showing here is so convincing. I really think this is an amazing discovery! Get this thing done and then get the Blu Ray matched to this!

Oh no you don’t! I just finished this reel to my liking, so you guys will just have to live with my less than perfect work.

😉

Hahaha, there’s nothing less than perfect about your work. It looks absolutely marvelous. I was just adding a different interpretation. 😃

I like both for different reasons, but if I had to pick one, I’d go with Neverar’s. (no offense Dre!, I’d watch yours all day long)
