Is there a repeated Poe shot? The one that he looks over to the hole in the oscillator. Is that the same one used for when he’s looking at the Starkiller’s laser?
I think so.
Originally I had used the shot of the female pilot reacting to an explosion (which I think fits better), but I suppose it was too obvious a repeat if the original scene was going to be played verbatim. I think some editing could be done to put her reaction back in the Starkiller firing and simply remove that reaction from the original scene.
I think if you add some Starkiller laser glow it shouldn’t be a problem.
I did that when I worked on the slow motion effect for that part, so the shot isn’t identical in color, at least.
Would flipping the shots be a possibility ? (I noticed the re-use of those shots as well)
Flipping wouldn’t work well, but maybe cropping and/or reversing the shot could work.
