Hi, I’m new to the community. I have just recently seen my first fan edit, Hal 9000’s Restructure of The Force Awakens and my breath was taken away. Big congratulations to everyone involved in the project. I was especially taken aback by the custom-made special effects. I have never thought such modifications were possible.
The shot of a Star Destroyer in place of the Hosnian system in the sky, the reversal and recoloring of the Starkiller Base energy stream, the Millennium Falcon exiting hyperspace, the modification of Leia’s hairstyle in her restored scene are things I never thought would be possible.
With all that in mind, I would have a hypothetical question to FX geniuses like Hal 9000, NeverarGreat and Sir Ridley. These are not requests or suggestions, just questions about the feasability of such modifications.
Would it be theoretically possible to insert the familiar elongated stars special effect to the background of the shot where the red plasma beams are moving away from Starkiller Base into empty space (to indicate it’s firing through hyperspace)?
Would it possible to shrink the Death Star even further, to a miniscule ball in the holographic comparison with Starkiller Base in the Resistance briefing scene, to give it a more realistic scale?
Would it possible to move Starkiller Base further away from the devoured star in the space shot when the star’s draining begins? (We wouldn’t see the small planet in the initial shot, only after the camera pans to the left, with the plasma stream also elongated.)
