<strong>Possessed</strong> Star Wars Trilogy custom edition
Time

A couple of observations:
When Luke first gets the lightsaber from Obi-Wan, he turns it on and then there is a weird kind of halo or distortion around his arm. I assumed that is ws from the roto-scoping, but I am not 100% sure. I did not notice it elsewhere when sabers were used.

I will help possessed on that one, He used my EP IV beta 1.2 in which I did all of the Sabers and Blasters, The Luke Obi scene was not finished, the Halo was an attempt to erase the original sabers with painting out all of the frames with a clean plate. I did not want to roto on top of what was there because it would look too thick and silly. Also it was the intent to fix c3po from moving as there was a jump cut when Luke activated his saber. I never finished that scene… It was as is, as I ran out time to complete it. For the shots inside the falcon, I used a CC wire remover tool, that squeezed in the original sabers and roto-ed on top of that rendered sequence. If you stare at it, yes you can see a little warpiness to it, But if you kickback with a beer and popcorn. Most can not tell.

STAR WARS 8 to be released in 4K ULTRA HD???
Time

My point is episode 2 and 3 were shot in 4K digital. So it was released in 4K in the theaters at the time. If the theater did not support 4K projection digital it was converted 35mm film. So yes we have 1080p now for home video, but they can release a 4K version.

STAR WARS 8 to be released in 4K ULTRA HD???
Time

Hello guys,

Been a while, I have been contemplating making future revisions to my Star Wars edits, that said, I was pre-planning on working on a edit for the last jedi, and I stumbled on a 4k ultra pre-order for the Last Jedi, http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Star-Wars-Episode-VIII-The-Last-Jedi-4K-Blu-ray/193044/

I have read some articles about 20th century FOX and with the licensing restrictions until 2020, and then the purchase of 21st CF, I mean is something in the works here that Disney plans on re releasing the original trilogy in 4k and the prequels for that matter?

I think there is a lot to think about from a fan editing perspective. With all of the controversy with SW 8, I am planning on working on a cut of that film, need to see the deleted scenes and if they have any of that god dam time code burn in on it…

There is a lot to think about when you start thinking of editing in 4k, yes Premier supports it, but from a performance level, what would be the recommended hardware specs? I work for a Visual Communications team as an IT support engineer for a company I can not mention here, and they themselves have a lot of shortcomings within regards to editing in true 4k. In short within regards to fan edits what are your take’s on this, and 4k Star Wars future fan edits?

TFA: A Gentle Restructure

His arm was already golden again at the very end of TFA.

That whole shot bothered me from day one. I think the studio screwed up on that one. Should have still been Red. Also that was not Anthony in the suite.

The Last Jedi : Fan Edit Ideas - ** <strong>SPOILERS INSIDE</strong> **
Time

oojason said:

Tomo, I hope you don’t mind, mate - I’ve edited the thread title just a little to give a bit more of a heads-up as to there being spoilers inside this thread.

 

Good luck with it - I’ve just got back from seeing it for the first time - and have a feeling there may be some varied and differing takes / approaches to fan edits of The Last Jedi…

(I did enjoy TLJ - a lot, though I think this film may require a few viewings to take everything in)

 

I could see a few trims to humour, and a few scenes where the CGI didn’t quite work / sit right (though a 2nd viewing is very likely required).

As stated in the other TLJ Spoiler thread… it’ll be interesting to see what deleted scenes we’ll end up getting (and IF those deleted scenes will be in an initial TLJ home release…)

Looks like I will be busy with Time Code removal requests lol

I’m aware that pcm is lossless but 5.1 pcm is huge overkill. 640 kbps ac3 is enough for a movie I think. Music is the only time lossless matters to me.

Audio is Audio my friend. My theater speaker setup is high end and believe me I can here the difference with double encoded Dolby Digital.

Yes it will because DD is more compressed than DTS to begin with so since it will have to be compressed again for the end product it makes sense to use the less compressed audio as the starting point, no?

I still haven’t fully decided if I’m even going with full 5.1 anyway. I might stick with dolby surround to make things simpler. Also That way recompresses will be less damaging as each channel will have more bitrate afforded it, and it will still upmix properly.

Right but what I am trying to point out, you wont loose anything if you convert the DTS to 5.1 or 7.1 PCM. Then Master it to PCM. (Blu ray) Sure it will take up more space but at least your not loosing anything. (PCM) (WAV) is lossless.

Well I’m having to start over again. I’ve been using womble to do the editing, but I’m going to have to leave it behind. I hate to do that because I love wombles extremely user friendly interface and I was able to make the seamless cuts I needed… Theoretically. The reason I’m giving up on it is because no matter what I do there is a very audible “pop” at cut points. It’s infuriating. Even if the fades and everything are set up to be seamless there’s still a big pop in the middle of the transition and while it doesn’t happen all the time when it does happen nothing I do will fix it. I hate it because I love wombles interface. So unless anybody knows a fix for that, I’m trying to get the hang of Adobe premiere. It’s a whole different world and I’m still trying to get the hang of it.

Yes but once you do, you will be a whole lot better off. I would also recommend you transcode all of your project footage to a non-lossey interm format. Will make you life a lot better. cc 2015 and 2017 support cineform . I highly recommend you start there. CC 2015 also supports DD multi channel audio support.

Well even womble supported 5.1 so I’m not worried about that. I will probably edit in 5.1 using six mono wavs sourced from the dts track, then export as 640 kbps DD ac3. (I think that would have less quality loss than using DD as a starting point.

not if you convert it to wav end output to PCM.

Star Wars Rogue One: Darth Vader chest plate Project announcement.
Time

Update:

–All of the Vader shots have added chest plate lights, and his mask eyes have been changed to match my IV 1.4 beta that is floating out there.

–Per SuperSecretMuffin request, I mixed in my death star firing shots from IV 1.4, flipped it and color corrected it to match the color tone of RO. I also reincorporated the original actors who were at the helm of the firing station mixed in both sequences from IV, from Both times the death star fired in RO. I am still playing a little with this because the pacing of RO of when the death star fires is a lot slower than in SW IV.

–HUD corrections. Most of the HUDs that show the death star in RO involve some type of countdown progress of it downloading, I need to spend more time the HUD that Andwan did, as I can not simply take what I did in IV 1.4 and insert it in RO. The Huds will need to be modified in some way to show a progress bar. This will take a little longer than I thought.

Future plans for IV… There is actually a lot of good stuff in RO that could be incorporated in IV, I might revisit it and replace some shots. (such as the Falcon approaching the death star, rebel base ect.)

Star Wars Rogue One: Darth Vader chest plate Project announcement.
Time

With the upcoming release of RO, I have made plans to correct the shots with Vader adding cg lights, and some minor shots with Laser Blasts that were not screen correctly. Overall this project should not take too long. I am still working thru rebels, very tedious so this will be a welcomed break…

List of Changes
Vader: Will restore his chest plate lights (blinking ones) once again to match my IV 1.02 beta that has been floating out there for the last few years… I also plan on darkening his mask eyes once again to match the Original and prequel trilogy’s “III, V-VI”. I understand why Disney did it the way they did because there version was suppose to match how things were bridging RO with epIV from a physical continuity perspective. (But this is a Fan edit, and it needs to match my personal fan edit of IV.

While I am sure there will be a lot of Fan edits and ideas out there, I plan on mainly just releasing my Master MOV Cineform files of the the shots I changed. Those shots should be considered useful for any fan editors out there that want to make changes the pacing of the film, and I know there will be a lot out there.

I will list more changes as I scrub though the film if needed… Any other suggestions can be posted here in this forum and I will take them into consideration…

Thanks…

I used to access this site quite frequently but recently original trilogy resolves as a bunch of garbage html code. This happens on Safari and Chrome both in which I have installed on my iPhone 6. Is there a issue that recently caused this?

I even tried this on more than one iPhone, same issue…
