I’ve been playing with ROTJ and I’d like to share my fixes & changes. I hope they are useful as inspiration for others. As always, edits are very personal, so people are free to like or dislike.
Just sharing this because it might help others with their projects, and of course I might get some nice ideas for my own 😉
So here’s the CAVE SCENE with some editing and color correction:
- blurred and changed the color of the cave background behind Luke,
- new the cave exterior mattes (based on material from the web)
Here’s a small enhancement to the Droids WALKING TO JABBA’S PALACE:
- Extended the sky and added two moons
- Some digital zoom out and panning.
SUNSET at Jabba’s palace:
- I’m using a background and Banthas I found on the web, with some stock dust footage.
- added slight camera movement to imply motion. Improves green-screen a lot (Han and Luke)
- fixed flipped Leia and Jabba shot
Here’s a rough GROUND BATTLE sequence:
This needs better sound editing, but it’s good enough to get the idea of how it could work.
Of course, you would be cutting away from this to the space battle and throne room.
Extra footage comes from the Ewoks movies and the Bucketheads fan film. Explosion shots are from TFA.
Also using the “bunker redux” reedit by section33.
Just ideas that might be useful for others. I’ll share more over time.
