The Rise of Skywalker - theatrical (!) regrade
Time

Sorry, didn’t want to be rude, but as I’m not here any day, and all the time I log in I see a lot of messages asking for links to my projects, sometimes I just forget to answer to some of them.

To be clear: sadly I had an HDD crash some times ago, therefore I lost all projects, along with links to online versions; someone reported that few of them are still floating in the wild, but frankly I don’t know where…

Time

Revised version by bronan:

  • Video: New 1080p render using sporv’s settings. No noise reduction or fake grain on this version, trimmed the last 4 minutes of black screen.
  • Audio: YT audio corrected to -100ms sync based off VHS reference
  • Subtitles: PGS & ASS

I had few hours free, so I took it, cut the borders, increase the contrast - that had the welcome side effect to increase the saturation too - then I just corrected the colors a tiny bit and slight denoised; downscaled to 1080p, and muxed to mkv with ac3 sound (just to make it BD compliant, if someone would like to mux to .m2ts).

Have fun!

P.S. Note for the admins/modes: I know that direct links are not allowed, but the source is freely available on youtube, so I thought it is just an exemption to the rule. Anyway, if you think to delete the link, I’ll understand.

The Rise of Skywalker - theatrical (!) regrade
Time

A friend told me he found a… ehr… “theatrical version” that has colors that look very similar to the theater projection, according to him at least.

He provided it, and I tried to regrade the BD using it as color reference.

BD untouched

BD regraded

Now, I don’t know if this color grading is theatrically accurate, and if so, how much; if there is some interest in this regrading, I could do it BUT! I need help: the reference file is 30fps progressive and has quite many blended frames; if someone would step in to de-blend at least the ones in the shot changes, I’ll do the regrading.

Opinions?

Jurassic Park (1993) with complete restored John Williams score (WIP)
Time

Maybe you misunderstood… what I wanted to mean, is:
if your replaced parts in 5.1 (where there are dialogs, if any)) have the music in L R SL SR but NOT in C, where in C there is only the English dialog and NOT music, it should be trivial to replace the English dialog in C with, for example, French, or German, or Italian, or Spanish, or whatever else language.

Looking for a simple guide to using Avisynth
Time

I’d start with something you could find here:
http://avisynth.nl/index.php/Guides

Advices:

  • avisynth is HARD - and I mean it… to master it, it will take a lot of efforts, time, patience… but the possible results worth anything!
  • go with avisynth+ instead of “normal” old ones
  • I use VirtualDub2, that is better than old versions IMHO
  • always refer to doom9 forum (https://forum.doom9.org/forumdisplay.php?f=33) for any problem, there are very helpful and nice users there.

Welcome to this strange world! 😄
