4K99EN (proof of concept)

2 Replies, 113 Views

As far as I know, the 4K99CS is the best theatrical version of The Phantom Menace so far - I’m not aware of other 35mm scans released or in the making, but I’m not up to date I must admit…

Said so, I thought to improve it just a bit; the 4K99EN would have:
  • English crawl and end credits
  • English alien subtitles - theatrical version (leaning towards hardsubs)
  • English SDDS 8-channel track (if I can afford to get it)
  • slight more details than 4K99CS
  • bigger frame size than 4K99CS and UHD-BD (depending on shots)
  • better color grading (subjective, of course)

This is just a proof of concept, first because I’m not sure if there is any similar project in progress, and second because with my current gear setup (19" 1680x1050 TN monitor and lack of HDD space) I can’t make it now, and frankly I don’t know when I eventually could - so please, don’t hold your breath! ?

Very interesting project, looks very nice spoRv!

The LD ac-3 5.1 would be a great addition if anyone has it!
Thanks!

I have the AC-3 LD but it's at away at home, along with players and capture hardware... hope one day to get my hands on them again!
