One of the massive things that annoyed me about the PT was George's non-use of Lightspeed. Not one internal shot of a star field turning into white lines. WTF!!! Those shots were so iconic in the OT and should be reintroduced back into the PT.

To this end... Does anyone have a clean version of a star field jumping to lightspeed? Hope someone can help and spread the love. I'm going to attempt it now but it would be great to see what other people have done.

Now that I think about it, I can only even recall one instance in the whole prequel trilogy where a ship goes to lightspeed, in AOTC.  

Of course I haven't seen them in a while.

I have done a lightspeed clean effect for a scene of my  The War of the Star II edit, only in SD though (and it was used as a background in the edit, not as "clean fullscreen" effect) I Don't know if I still have my after effects project to make a HD version of it, but I'll look for it.

Here is the effect. This is a .jpg sequence of an "exit" from lightspeed. But just play it in reverse to get a "jump". Maybe add some zoom/blur effect as you want to make it better, I don't know. I don't remember if the original effect was done by myself or someone else. All I know is that added some little blur and a blue tint. (Then, on my edit, I added a rotoscoped falcon cockpit scene above it. and it worked nice enough)

I don't remember if the rules on this forum allow me to post a link to mega, but moderators would remove it if it's not the case. (then PM me if you want it)
