4k77 released
Time

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.

Harmy's THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Despecialized Edition HD !!!MKV and AVCHD v2.0 NOW AVAILABLE!!!
Time

CatBus said:

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
Time

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.

Having seen the theatrical version, I can say that your recreation is extremely close to what I remember. I am psyched for this. The original press release for the home video versions implied that the 4K releases would retain the theatrical presentation, and I was bummed when that turned out not to be the case. Thanks so much for making this!

Edit: I see the 1080p encode is coming soon - any ETA?

Thank you and you are welcome, and I just posted the links to the 1080p encode. The recreation is finally posted. There are a few graphical issues, but it seems to be derived from the source I used. Hope you enjoy 😃

There was a warning displayed before the film when I saw it, but apparently, it was not in the film provided by the studio but was added afterward by the theatres. Even with the warning, late-arrivers could easily have missed it with very serious consequences. I think it’s surprising that a big-budget film even made it to screens looking like that at all. A film that could potentially injure a viewer, where all the lawyers on vacation that week or something?

More info on the re-edit here.

Added information about Incredibles 2 theatrical release. Thank you CatBus!

Holy crap! Did the movie really look like that in theaters? That’s nuts.

More or less. There was a warning displayed before the film when I saw it, but apparently it was not in the film provided by the studio, but was added afterward by the theatres. Even with the warning, late-arrivers could easily have missed it with very serious consequences. I think it’s surprising that a big-budget film even made it to screens looking like that at all.

EDIT: This is not intended to criticize narth at all for his effort. Presumably nobody will see his edit without full knowledge of what they’re getting themselves into, so no harm, good work, and as someone who saw it in the theatre, I can say it looks about right to me. Disney/Pixar, on the other hand, they should have known better.

Thank you for the information and links you provided. I still can’t believe that it was allowed in theaters in the state it was in. I figured Disney, if nobody else, would catch something like that. I’m glad they fixed it on the home releases, but I still believe there should be both versions available for people who can enjoy it. That’s why I have this project going.

I realized while rewatching the edit that one scene I actually forgot to add the pattern flashing, I had instead just had the shadows going so I’m going to further delay releasing the HD copies till v2.2 is up. Also, the 2k version will not be released after all.

How did you make this? you did an incredible job (No pun intended) but how did you recreate this?

Thank you. I used Lumetri Color in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2018. I just played with the exposure and contrast until I felt it looked good, then I had the shadows or the whites flicker from dark to light or light to dark each frame so it gave the flashing effect.
