4K77
« on: Thu, 26 March 2020, 14:34:16 »
Now that everyone's Xcited to see all 9 movies 4K Bluray coming out on the 31st, March.

Dn' forget to watch the 4K77 episode 4, available on Usenet n' Arghmatey.

It's a FAN-Restoration of the original Theatrical projector version.

The New Hope Reel has been professionally scanned into data @ 4K resolution (21 Terabytes), then color graded and rendered to ~110mbit for distribution (78 Gigabyte). Since it's SDR, technically, it has even more shadow detail than HDR.

Witness oldness. So Grain, Much Retro

I actually prefer the Silver Screen Edition, the lighting from scene to scene was corrected a bit and it was color adjusted to work on TVs and monitors.

4K77 is optimized for theater viewing and while better per pixel, they did less cleanup on it. So it's a better restoration, but from a viewing perspective it's not as good.

Both are awesome though.

The weakness on all of these Fan-editions is that while they have alot of -temporal- resolution, the single frames are often a bit soft and you can tell the transfer goes a little bit out of focus because of generational loss.

What they do preserve is the old movie coloring style.

Was the 4k77 graded for projector ? I know it's projector material, but it doesn't look like it was regraded FOR projector, since the shadows extend pretty gradually into black, whereas if they were grading for projection, these details would look much more crushed played back on monitors..

Silver Screen and 4K77 info pages talk about all of this.

Lucas re-adjusted for the Special Edition DVD, Silver Screen Edition is color adjusted to that allowing them to use some scenes from it when the original was too degraded. 4K77 is corrected to where they where they were happy with it.

As for it being blurry, even the original was blurry at times, "Some scenes were also filmed with nylons over the lens, others were not".
They used different cameras, sand got into the film (hence the Nylons) and at times they just had to use what shot they got as they ran out of time and money. Besides, who was going to watch it at high resolution and home once it left theaters...
