While I’m waiting for a computer with the capability to run Blender, I figured I can begin a simpler edit…

…1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. (OHMSS)

Changes:

New, more vibrant color grade (original is a bit washed out)
Replaced out-of-place music (i.e, We Have All The Time In The World cue playing during Gumbold safe scene)
Shifted shorter scenes around (especially near the end of the movie.)
Removed final “Guns make me nervous.”
Fixed flat/robotic sound of Irma Bunt’s line, “Not ground, ice.”
Removed echo effect in fight scene outside Draco’s office
Removed awkwardly long shots throughout
Fixed “blue fade” in the transition to the titles
Removed useless flash cuts
Removed “You should’ve been gift-wrapped.”
New mattes for obvious rear-projection/blue screen shots
Touch-up work and continuity fixes throughout

As the man says, this never happened to the other fella.

PM and you shall receive (a sample because I’m not all the way done).

It’s a bit rough around the edges, but it’s from the rough cut of the edit, so it’ll get better as time passes.

Don’t forget to add your email so I can send the sample to you.

» Can you explain a bit what was removed?

“New mattes for obvious rear-projection/blue screen shots”
» I’m curious about this. Can you post a link to some before/after pictures?

I trimmed some shots that go on longer than they need to, and I can’t figure out how to make my pictures work despite using the right syntax.

I now have a recomp showcase video showing some before and after stuff on a few select shots in the film. I used the AI green-screen tool in Runway ML, and it came out really good. If you PM me with your email, I can send it to you,

So far, the color grade looks pretty good, everything is much more consistent and vibrant now.

Crap, lost the files.

There’s not a single trace of my work left except the poster and samples. 😦

You likely know about/tried such, but did you try a scan with un-delete software such as Recuva? If not, remember you need to do so immediately, before you start overwriting things.

LightWave = fun times with gfx for me 😃
