And unlike many other edits It will be very easy to download and watch.

What do you mean?

I mean I will post a link here instead of putting it on usenet or something.
Which is complicated for some people.

If direct download links were allowed here, don’t you think we’d all post them?

Sorry, I goofed I guess I cant do that, I will find another way to release it.

It should be blue like in Harmy’s edit. It was color graded based on 35mm sources so it would be very accurate to the original.

Right, I will post a screenshot later of the blue wall.
But remember it wont be as blue as in Harmy’s edit, because this is supposed to replicate the Gout.
So it will have a blue tint but not as much as harmy did.

ANH GOUT Reconstruction (A WIP)
Time

So in 2006 along with the normal special edition discs, bonus discs of the OG trilogy (unaltered) were released. even Though they had terrible quality for a DVD, the color and layout were loved by many fans, You can argue that it may be the most natural grade in ANY star wars release. I will be recreating the (ANH) Gout in HD using 35mm sources and the color corrected version of ANH done by Adywan, with a few adjustments the color and layout will match the GOUT no problem as well as other tweaks like Greedo having no subtitles, different desert matte, and many more, To be fair this edit isn’t 100% accurate, I will be fixing compositing errors, Garbage mattes will be removed, And some changes will be left in, Mostly compositing changes. But other than that it is completely theatrical. this fan edit will be released later this year (Maybe).

Adywan’s Colour Corrected 2011 Blu-ray (Was made in 2018)

my ESB Grindhouse Fan Colour Correction (Released)

So, I just made a color correction LUT for the Grindhouse release in DaVinci Resolve. It’s a quick solution to fix some color degradation problems and can be applied in almost every modern video editor, like Premiere or Final Cut.

Here are some examples with before/after comparisons: http://i.imgur.com/0w17vDs.jpg

And here’s the LUT for download:
https://mega.co.nz/#!hsBDHKKY!kuTxtlqZf2lc9UG8iPjx-_rO3_L7FOd-CwGt6fD9cdE

I am not quite satisfied with this results yet because I think it degrades the greens a little too much (see Bobba Fett).
I will give more details of how I did it later so that people with more experience can try to do it better than I did.

can you please re-post the lut? I cant find it on mega
