What was released back then were simply Laserdisc -> DVD transfers - almost the laziest possible solution.

I have read statements from film restoration experts that a proper HD transfer can be done - even despite Lucas' insistence that the originals were destroyed to make the special editions.

Personally, I think Harmy's "despecialized" editions are great, and well worth the effort to track them down - even if they're not particularly legitimate.

I may have covered this before on here somewhere,but I have the DVD versions of the Originals from the Limited Edition collections released in 2006 they look fine,and if a company like Lowry(who did the Bond movie restorations)could get hold of them,they can polish them up even more ready for HD conversion(i have no idea how it is all done,so....er..yeah)

The Bond movies were meticulously restored by frame by frame from the original negatives.

Yup. You can't really make a HD conversion from DVDs. Increasing resolution through some kind of magic algorithm is, sadly, something that only happens in movies and TV shows. Missing data is missing data. A computer can't tell what's missing.

My point being about FOX that they HAD released the originals versions on DVD,and just 7 years(8 if you want to be fussy) ago,so they had the original negatives then,so as i said if a company like Lowry can get hold of them(meaning the original source)..etc etc,if any film needs restoring frame by frame it would be the original Star Wars trilogy,as they have been gobbled up by the Special Editions

Actually, from what I recall, those DVDs are derived from the Laserdisc version, not directly from the negatives.
