Back to the future trilogy effects edit.
#1
Can someone please look into upgrading the Back to the future trilogy special effects that really stick out badly. I think it might only be the flying car scenes and the scenes with the hoverboard. if anyone knows of any other scenes could you please look into those as well and use the uhd as a source and for the audio use the laserdiscs theatrical audio.

Some scenes with gunshots had original sounds replaced with modern, "more immersive" sounding ones.

If the currant audio isn’t an issue then do you think you could please fix the visual effects that stick out badly that I mentioned if you know how to do that and if it’s no problem for you. because I read in a review of the uhd that they stick out really bad in 4k like the flying police car that leaves with Jennifer etc.

I don't really have the know how on fixing visual effects. Plus, that would be considered an alteration as it's changing how they originally were (not matter how great or sloppily done).

I suppose you could add film grain which is always expected to be present in theaters and help cover up shortcomings of effect shots.
That's the problem with 4k. It's too clean and not at all what the original filmmakers intended their films to look like.

Yeah I wasn’t saying updating the effects to not look like the original effects. I’m saying using the same designs etc. but fixing the flaws and the other issues the old effects have. in other words an improvement that keeps the intent of the effects but gets rid of the flaws. similar to the fan edit Superman the final cut. If you know someone on here who could do this I’d be extremely grateful.

I was tempted to say this when you (jedimasterplo) first posted this thread, but I waited to see what the reception would be.  But I'll now go ahead and suggest that you might be on a site here that's less ideal for what you request. Someone with more posts/seniority can correct me if I'm incorrect about this, but FanRes generally has projects very much reaching to embrace all aspects of original releases — even aspects the modern world might see as blemishes — rather than being eager to alter such things.

I'm not saying you made some mistake posting here or anything, but you might want to think about posting over at OriginalTrilogy.com, specifically

https://originaltrilogy.com/discussion/F...ties/id/11


That forum has a number of movie projects with fan-altered effects shots as per the kind of work you're talking about (actually has some Superman edits ala what you mentioned). Smile

Have you actually watched the discs Jedi? Did you notice the effects? Reviewers often mention things like this to add some balance to their reviews (as they usually gush over everything else about a new transfer).

I know it’s hard once you’ve read a review but try and watch it without thinking about if and see if you actually notice anything.
