I meant post it in the Projects section of the fanres forum. The guys over there are really supportive of new projects like yours and I’m sure you’d have no trouble getting the audio you need.

Ah, thank you for the suggestion. I have no idea why it didn’t come to me before. Hopefully I can get what I need, I’d love to see a finished version of this amazing movie.

Why not post your project in the Projects section of the forum? I’m sure members there will gladly share the mono audio track with you.

I didn’t realize that I had posted it under the wrong section. https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/The-Shining-1980-Zemastered-Edition/id/70150 I reposted it in the right one. Thank you for letting me know.

Please just wait for the next DrDre’s tool: it will automatically restore deleted scenes, integrate them into the movie, upscale them to 4k and recolorize them in HDR.
And besides, this tool will be compatible with Mac OSX.

PS: it even seems that it will be able to possibly fix The Last Jedi.

Can this tool match the colors of a video with those of another video? That is what I want to do with the deleted scenes and the footage that I already have.

After my few encounters with you, I have to ask. Are you dense? Do you not read these posts?

The Shining (1980) - Zemastered Edition v1.0

Description:

I was disappointed, but not surprised to see that the 1972 Warner Bros logo was not restored on the 4K release. This sparked a simple project to recreate the logo, and add it to the start of the film. Soon after I started working on this project, I discovered the ABC broadcast from 1985 and the 1985 laser-disc have blue credits at the end. I felt it gave the credits an even more unnerving feeling, so I added it back to the film.

The shots with snow are very white in the 4K remaster. When I was watching the 4K remaster, I always thought the snow should be shifted more blue instead of being sharply white. The 2007 Blu-ray had too much blue in my opinion, but I don’t think it should be eradicated completely. The brightness and highlights in the scenes with snow seem too flat in my opinion, so this will be altered in my version.

The Shining 35mm print opportunity

Color correction work is still ongoing. It’s a long process as you can probably guess. The end result will be worth it though.

On a related note, I wish I could see this in person!

I was wondering if you knew about the snow in the maze at the end. Did it have a blue tint over it or is it white as the 4K reflects? If you have any idea, it would help a bunch with a project I am currently working on. Thank you in advanced.

DrDre’s tools will likely do quite well, but you may discover you need shot by shot rather than scene by scene correction. Poita has some not-fully-corrected screenshots in his ESB thread that you can probably use for sanity checks. I think DrDre has even posted corrected versions of them.

I had meant shot by shot my bad. Thank you for the right direction on the color. I’ve started color grading in photoshop using Harmy’s and Adywan’s revisited for color direction. I’ll check out Poita and DrDre’s threads on it. Thank you 😃

Fine, no color correction at all then. Besides, it’s too expensive to even buy a single software for color correction.

You just don’t seem to be getting it. You want this edit? Put the work in. Browse these threads, look other places online. It’s incredibly rare that all of what you are looking for is just gonna be sitting right in front of you. None will do this for you. I wish you luck, but you are going to have to do the bulk of the work. Maybe all of it.

4k77 released

Willrow’s Ice Cream Maker said:

Hello there!

Recently found the no-DNR 4K77 whilst wandering the wastes of the internet and LOVED it.

However, I’ve come to learn that the version I watched is the no-DNR “1.0” version, while there exists a no-DNR 1.4 regraded version. Would anyone be able to PM me in the right direction (AKA does anyone have the file)?

Apologies if this goes against any sort of guidelines or something, I’m a bit new here. Thanks guys, and may the Force of others be with you!

Check out thestarwarstrilogy.com, you should find what you are looking for.

do not go to forums.thestarwarstrilogy.com and expect to find links to the movies…i just registered and it was a complete waste of time.
jumped through all the hoops and there wasn’t anything worthwhile…so I spent a few minutes to tell others on this forum not to bother, hopefully save your time.

forums.thestarwarstrilogy.com = waste of time.

If you had taken the time to look around, and actually read the posts on forums.thestarwarstrilogy.com, you’d find what you are looking for. It’s not in a direct link because that’s just a stupid thing to do in terms of copyright. It’s almost stupid how easy it is to find what you are looking for.

IIRC it was a mix of a color-balanced GOUT, Puggo Strikes Back (16mm print), and Harmy’s eyeballs. I believe there was an incomplete 35mm source from Poita toward the end of this that may have also helped.

For example, while I think color-balanced GOUT was the major reference, there were a few instances where the GOUT diverged widely from PSB and other theatrical prints (the warm orange glow sometimes seen in the Cloud City halls was a cool blue in the GOUT). In those cases, PSB/prints were the reference. I believe the prints were similarly used to “settle” the issue of bluish ice on Hoth, not that people don’t still complain about it.

Thank you for the information. I’m currently working on a TN1 ESB Grindhouse restoration as my medium for learning film restoration. I’m using Dr. Dre’s Color Correction tool to make LUTs for every scene so I thought it’d be nice to know where the colors came from.

No one likes being told what to do, especially with things they spent time on and didn’t get paid for. Asking for it would probably be more effective in getting what you want. Just a thought.

I did ask for everything to be in 720p for my “Ultimate Edition” of the saga. I tried to be as polite as I could, but Jaxer proceeded to make fun of my request, possibly completely unaware of the fact that I know absolutely nothing about color correction. I was offended by their response, so I calmly stood up to them. If you thought I was being bossy, then I’m sorry if I sounded that way.

Never too late to learn. How you came off seemed rude and demanding. Most of the time with a project like you are trying to accomplish, the files are not just going to be there and ready. You will have to put in work with it. Everyone starts somewhere with editing. I recommend looking on YouTube for tutorials depends on your editor. I personally use Adobe Premiere for most of my work. Adobe has a 30 day free trial of it.

Denoise, Regrain And CC of ESB Grindhouse

Terebi said:

Dreamaster : Could you clarify if your cleanup here was done from the original scans of the grindhouse, or from the grindhouse release itself (and therefore a re-encode)? It matters due to the upload rule of some sites which would allow the former, but not the latter.

If I’m remembering correctly, for v2 he got sent the original openexr scans from the grindhouse.

So, what is new with 3.0? not to sound rude like what I mean is is there anything new with it other than the Blu-Ray as a source? enhancements in the strobe lights? I love this project and I can’t wait for 3.0!!

It’s sourced from the Blu-ray and the colors look much nicer and slick. All the strobe lights are redone to be more accurate to the theatrical release. Otherwise nothing new has been added.
