Police Story III colour regrade/correction
#1
I haven't started yet (as such), because I don't have all the materials as of now. But I'm planning to take the new 4k-remastered restoration, and colour correct it (as it unfortunately features 'Ritrovata syndrome'). Will likely use the video from an earlier fan project to colour match, as it's what I have available (alongside the murky HK remaster on DVD).

Planning to also add the original 2.0 track, and a good set of English subs. If there's anything anyone feels I should include, I'm all ears.

Released:

I have the recently released UK versions of 1 and 2 from EuReKa, but I had no idea this had been remastered to tell you the truth.
Have Fortune Star released all of them in HK then?

It got remastered at the same time, but (I'm assuming) rights issues have held up the remaster of part 3 getting a release with the Eureka set, at least. It's only gotten a Japanese release so far (timed to coincide with the Japanese release of 'Bleeding Steel', bizarrely retitled 'Police Story: Reborn'), I assume it'll get a wider release soon enough. Probably with the same colours. There are some screenshots of it here: https://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?p...tcount=709

Figured I'd pick up the Japanese blu-ray while it was on sale.

Miramax/Dimension supposedly still owns PS III, which was reedited and retitled into "Supercop" for English speaking markets they released this version in.

I believe they do, hence the likelihood of rights issues. It looks like they never had rights to it in Asia, though. So this version could theoretically get a release in other parts of Asia.

I think the fan project I will be using as a basis for the colour might reflect the 'Supercop' edit more, but I don't know how the HK version is 'supposed' to look. The releases I'm familiar with are quite dark, but I can't speak for anything released earlier (and I've long since forgotten how it looked when I first saw it on TV).

A brief progress update:
I still don't have my copy, but screencaps of the Japanese release have too much yellow in them. Typical Ritrovata remaster. Comparison with the HK blu-ray:

Would it be possible to correct it adequately by tweaking the hue and/or saturation, or would it be easier to work with LUTs.

What software are you using to color correct this?

I use Adobe Premiere CC myself and it has a effect plug built in called Fast Color Corrector
In that there is a White Balance picker, try applying it to the Helicopter in this scene

Its should get you on your way Smile

I'd be trying Davinci Resolve. I don't have Premiere, but I'll see if Resolve has something similar. Thanks! Hopefully my copy gets here soon. Weekend mail delivery due to Christmas, so fingers crossed.

Resolve should have something similar.
Ive not used Resolve, but it is said by many to be a much better color correction tool.
Ive been meaning to make the jump myself.

It does, but Resolve itself doesn't seem to be working for me the way I need it to (the BD has since arrived). Short of doing LUTs for every scene, it might take me a while to figure out how to get Davinci to work.
I'm testing Vegas Pro, as I've used it for audio in the past. Got the film as a DNxHD encoded file, and it's loaded okay. Fingers crossed.
