One thing i have to say since seeing the 2D presentation though is, i take back everything i said about Yoda. What the hell did they do in the 3D conversion? Did they overscrub the grain or something? Yoda, in the 3D presentations looked very smooth and almost waxy. Yet the 2D showing he looked amazing. Just like ESB Yoda. The only thing i noticed was the the puppeteer closed the mouth too tight and caused the face to squash, giving it a strange puffy look a couple of times. But that was the only thing that looked off in the 2D showing. In fact , effects wise, the whole film looked better in 2D
Have you given any thought to foxing around with that scene when the BR comes out, Ady? Maybe while you’re working on ROTJ Yoda? After my second viewing I thought pretty much the same as you, and it occurred to me that tweaking the mouth much like you did in ESB would go a long way to making him look nearly perfect.
