Hi everyone and Happy Easter!
I’d like to have some opinions about this color correction.
Do you think it’s better to just desaturate the desert and make it look like The Mandalorian’s Tatooine… or make it less red and more yellow like these screenshots?

I’m trying a new sun effect for Endor?
Thoughts?

I’d really really like to know what you think of this.

It certainly looks more interesting and alien and less like California.

Thank you both. I’ll try this then. It will take more time than usual, because I’ll have to mask every stormtrooper to remove the glowing effect on their armor.

Hahahahaha… I was kind of inspired by this. The background is sunny, bright yellow…

And here’s a video with that sun-ish glow (and with new soundtrack).

Ya I’m really enjoying Endor’s new look. I completely agree with your assesment on ROTJ’s colors. They are really ugly especially on Endor and Tatooine. I’m still not 100% sold on the music even though I think its cool. Good Stuff!

Thank you. About the music, that’s something I did in the whole saga. Added OT music in the prequels, and PT music in the originals, to give the feeling of something more cohesive. But I totally understand that many don’t like this, so… no problem 😉 I’m still not sure about the second one (the final part with Luke).

I notice that the lighting on the Death star feels too Dark to be realistic. This isn’t a critique of your correction but more an issue that has been present since the film was released.

Here’s my attempt at fixing this issue using the overly dark 4K version as a base, brightening the Death Star highlights more than the rest of the image:

Fixed

I also toned down the blue slightly and flipped the cruisers so that their highlights matched the lighting of the shot.

What a grand and intoxicating innocence. How could you be so naive? There is no escape. Come, lay down your weapons. It is not too late for my mercy.

Wow! I really like that. And the cruisers… I never even noticed that lighting was on the wrong side.
Thanks!

I’m super excited for this. I’m really digging the Emperor’s throne room without the blue and the brightness on Ackbar.

Could you send me a link to this edit, please? I look forward to checking it out, it looks very good!!!

All these color corrections are looking fantastic. My favorite is the new brightness of Endor, it looks much more interesting now.

So out of boredom I decided to start messing around with the music from the Speeder Bike Chase. Let me know what you guys think. The best part is most definitely at the end when Luke whips out his green saber, so you can honestly just skip to that LOL.

Can I get a link to V1, please?

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”
Well, are ya, punk?

I thought of a cool little visual effect that could be added. I didn’t really think about it until watching a video about it. The youtuber mention how interesting it was that Ben Burt added a small impact scratch effect the lightsaber had when it hits the stairs. Could there be a possibility a small spark effect could be added where the tip of the lightsaber hits the step on the stairs???

All my life as I looked away to the future, to the horizon. Never in my mind did I know where I was, what I was doing.

I’ll certainly try that. I’m just working with Sony Vegas, so the only thing I can do is look for a green screen spark effect… But it it looks ok I will add that 😉
