Hello! Recently I came back to work on this edit, trying to create the best version for those who would like to watch the unaltered version except for the 1997 SE ending with the new music and extended celebration scenes.
ROTJ 83-97 Edit 1st Version 720p 10,0 GB MP4
Yotsuya made two versions, one of them combined mainly 4K83 1.6 with his own '97 ending ( used from the funeral pyre to the force ghosts that came from his own 4K83 color correction). But that ending showed a low quality as there isn’t an HD version of ROTJ SE 1997 available.
ROTJ 83-97 Edit B 720p 6,9 GB MP4
So he did another one using a mix of 4K83 versions (mainly 4K83 1.3 and 1.4) , and the BR for most of the ending (some shots were replaced by 4K83 as the force ghost or some BR flawed composited shots), so the planet’s celebration looked quite better than 97 while being the same shots. The problem is that BR celebration features Naboo and the transition from Tatooime goes to that planet, instead of Coruscant. Yotsuya managed to make a new transition from Tatooime to the BR Coruscant using a mask but it has a brief “jumping” that avoids it to be near perfect.
So now I’m doing a third version, this time in 1080p (and possibly 4K) based on his own, that will feature 4K83 1.3 except for the pre-tittle scene and his same BR/4K83 / 97 based ending upscaled to 1080p/4K.
As for now there isn’t any true HD version of ROTJ 97 SE, I think the best way to make this edit is using BR Coruscant and trying to improve the transition from Tatooine. There is also the possibility to use all 1080p sources for his ending and recreate the exact way he did. But I think the most important would be to make a flawless transition from BR Tatooine to BR Coruscant. If anyone here knows how to do it or knows someone who could make it please tell me.
