my ESB Grindhouse Fan Colour Correction (Released)
Time

DrunkenMaster442 said:

The Blue Color Correction looks great, similar to the 2011 Grade. I wish the 2011 grade wouldn’t get so much flack, it really isn’t the bad. Just be careful with your work and make sure it doesn’t get stolen.

What do you mean stolen? no one here is allowed to state these as “their property” Any edit made belongs to the respected copyright holder, in this case Disney/Lucasfilm. saying “Don’t steal my work” makes no sense, as you did not make it, just adjusted it, which in no way makes you entitled to own it.

Also on another hand the 2004 master (2011 Blu-ray) is terribly color graded, it has crushed blacks, unnatural hues, blues where there shouldn’t be any blues, and don’t even get me started on the magenta flashes.

ESB: Unfinished lightsaber effects restoration. (file Recovered!!!)
Time

I’ve cleaned up the unfinished lightsaber scenes from Team Negative 1’s “ESB Scope Teaser” I’ve eliminated all the visible scratches/dust and de-grained the image without losing any quality.
I’ve re-grained the image slightly, using grain from an original 35mm source. enjoy.

snapshots:





If you would like this clip then send me a PM.
If you want to use this in your edit, then you can use it.
No need for any credit 😉.

ANH GOUT Reconstruction (A WIP)
Time

Ronster said:

I like this because I like the way the Gout looks and it sounds like your also not going for a solid recreation as in warts and all including sound fixes and so on although I’m not hearing you talk about synch fixes which there are numerous times it goes wrong and out of synch. That would be a perhaps good idea as it’s akin to removing garbage mattes.

So although the GOUT is good there is a decision you must make on the Yavin take oFF shot will you go with the Orange recomposite planet with better color or the red planet messed up original?

But hey looking forward to seeing how this come along. 😃

I will be going with whatever the gout looks like in that shot, when I get to it anyway.

Star Wars ANH (Devastator edition) (WORK HAS RESTARTED).
Time

Does anyone have any 3D modeling and animation experience?
if so then PM me because I need a few shots of the ties/x wings fighters. as well as two millennium falcon shots.
I just want to make sure there are no skilled animators under my nose before I end up using still images.
Also, I wont be working on Nov 30 to Dec 3 I am taking a vacation with my nephew to Disney world, which is good because I can take some needed images of the millennium falcon cockpit as well as other things that I may need.

Maybe he’s thinking jaundice.

Anyway, without having to rehash a huge discussion thread too much, SW DeEd 2.x was graded based on a Technicolor reference print. Why? The theory was sound – everyone’s got their own idea of what looks good, but Harmy wasn’t interested in what looked good, he wanted what looked accurate. Since most Star Wars prints had long ago faded to pink vinegar, we had no good color references… except Technicolor prints, which didn’t fade much at all under the right circumstances.

The result? DeEd 2.7 looks very much like a Technicolor print you might have seen in a theater in 1977.

The bad news? Technicolor prints were often very unlike other 35mm prints in terms of colors. Especially around this time, they often had a heavy yellow cast. So DeEd 2.7 looks very unlike what you might have seen in a theater in 1977, if it wasn’t showing a Technicolor print (which was most of them).

Going forward, Harmy’s indicated that he plans for a more neutral grade, or even multiple grades, when he redoes Star Wars for the 3.x series.

EDIT: The 1993 versions of the films have their own issues. They are heavily magenta-tinted, so everyone has red faces instead of yellow faces. In terms of color accuracy to non-Technicolor source, the 1997 Special Editions are actually pretty good for commercial releases, although I think the home video versions still got messed up somehow. I’d say DrDre has the best sense of Star Wars colors, if you want to check some of his threads. Nobody should use the 1993 releases as a color reference.

I Will check all you say about different kind of films and its own characteristic colours, that is what I was refering but I didn’t knew how to say it, and I thought that the colour had been changed in your post-postproduction, but that was basically the idea. What I refer is that for me the colour of faces seems more natural in older LD or even in older VHS than in new versions.

I will check all of this to see if I found some new to say. I haven’t seen other versions than HARMY DEED so I couldn’t compare with new versions, I just compred with movies I downloaded.

Thanks to all and I hope we will talk soon.

Adywan made a color correction to the 2011 blu-ray, It looks very natural, want me to pm you a link?

Yes, please, I didn’t knew that exist another versions as Harmy did, I thought that other people corrections where added to Harmy movies as parts of the movies.

Thank you.

Check your PM’s
