STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 REVISITED ADYWAN *1080p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION — Page 86

After watching the clips I have, I must say I am impressed so far. All you guys are in for a real treat.

So a few questions and ideas for Adywan:

Deleted Magic pointed out a film crew member that helps push R5-D4 from the sandcrawler and goes to hide behind the treadwell droid. Any chance you could paint him out?
You were going to modify Ben's line of "Your father wanted you to have this..." Did this change get made?
The ILM crew erased too much of the bottom of Luke's speeder as the heroes pulled up to the cantina fir the special edition. Can you fix this?
You mentioned replacing Ponda Baba's paw with a flipper for the limb on the floor scene. Did this get done? The smoke coming off the cauterized wound looks great, btw.
And a tough one... The costume for Kenny Baker had holes in the base so Mr. Baker could rock the costume back and forth for some of those scenes. His feet were hid by black tubing. Any chance these could be painted out?
You mentioned earlier that we would be seeing the Death Star superlaser beginning to fire before it explodes. Is this still being planned? It would be cool to see a white flash blast through the Death Star before it blew up, similiar to the one in ROTJ.

That's all for now.

P.S. Not to get all crazy technical here, but why are the masks visible, even though it's a video layer that is selected? Are those masks on that layer? And if so, why? I have a few guesses, but instead of writing them all out, I figured I'd just ask you.
Most of the shots like this i have to first cut out each object to keep using the mask layer. Next i have to go through frame by frame and adjust the markers so that only the ship is visible and not and of the background elements. Each frame has a created keyframe. Some shots you can actually skip the adjusting for a few frames because the mask created by the keyframes matches but most cases its is a frame by frame job. You can see the masks visible on that video layer because these are foreground objects and have to remain that way due to adding all the extra elements and also because i brightened up the stars quite a bit i need to be able to keep the levels of all other objects well below the new levels of the stars, so each original element that is to be kept has to be masked.

Unfortunately this will be impossible to do at present. You see the quality HD versions just weren't available when i first started this edit and i would have to start from scratch for most of the movie , colour correcting and many of the FX shots would need re-doing to. So no HD version for the foreseeable future. but i have been working with HD elements recently so i wouldn't rule it out, but this maybe years away yet.

How long will the bonus dvd take to create? Definitely release the movie first. Only joshing, keep up the great work Ady.

I still have a few bugs to iron out to get it sounding natural but yes this is still planned.

I'm still working on the flipper but this is going to make it into the final version.

This one you'll just have to wait and see. After all i can't give too much away

And now something i really hope someone can help me with. If anyone has Moth3rs PAL ANH transfer could you please post a couple of clips please that i need desperately. The first is the shot of the ships moving away from the death star after Luke launches the torpedo and the second is the death star explosion itself. i have the GOUT but its NTSC and the jaggies are so horrible that using this as a source makes it look awful. Or if anyone can point me in a direction where i could obtain the full Moth3r PAL DVD, but torrents are out because they crawl for me due to ISP limitations. then this would be even better becase there are a few more shots that i could really do with too.

Well I was going to watch Episode IV again on DVD, but have decided to watch ITV's showing of it (the 1997 edition) instead - so I could get an idea of the sorts of changes being made to both the picture and some of the sequences. Watching it and comparing it to just the teasers we've had from Adywan already shows a massive difference in picture quality...not only is there a hint of blue on the 1997 picture (although not as bad on the dvds) but in some shots, there has been a red hue to some of the stormtrooper armour and on the walls. All of the square panels on the Tantive IV corridor look like they were painted in a very pinkish white!! Artoo's tracks in the sand appear to have been airbrushed out and there was a glaring matte line on the horizon as 3PO says 'what a desolate place this is.' I did have a small chuckle at the dewback trooper - he looks like he's going to get motion sickness such is the joltiness of the animation!

Did notice one thing on the bit where the droids are being taken down for the sale...3PO is sitting down and looks to have the bottom part of his suit missing - the waist section where his wiring is exposed looks like it hasn't been tucked into anything. (It's the bit where he puts his hands up and says 'don't shoot').

Anyway, this does make me even more keen to see Ady's end result and I shall be eagerly awaiting the time when we can all get our hands on a copy to view!

EDIT: Ben Kenobi looks like he has a slight blue rinse to his hairdo...!!

Yeh, i'm watching the showing on ITV now. It's such a pity that its been zoomed to 16:9 because there are some shots on the DVD where the colour was unfixable but in the '97 SE there was no problem so i could have used this version because its a lot better quality than the SE version i have already. There might be snippets i can use for a couple of the colour fixes though. Its also a shame that ITV is only transmitting in 2.0 and not the 5.1 track.

Ok Ady, after watching Star Wars on ITV just now it's made me remember one tiny little mistake (sort of).

Trash compactor scene. 3PO is trying to shut down the mashers....cut to scene with the droids and you here "no, shut them all down" as a reply to R2. But we don't actually here anything from R2.
Are you gonna stick a beep in there? I know it's small and picky, but seeing how others here are chucking in their observations, I thought I'd might as well. This and the sand on the Wookies foot...that's all I have. Seeing how you're trying to make this perfect...well y'know!!

Inserting the Enterprise into the final battle would be ridiculous. Now, Serenity... that's another story.

Let's leave the separate franchises separate - putting Serenity or the Enterprise in Star Wars just because we can seems like digital effects masturbation rather than meaningful enhancement.

OK, I'm on a roll now after watching SW last night.
One thing that bothers me (not really, but hey) is the Gold pilots voices on the trench run. Two of them sound identical. I seem to remember them being different on the old pre SE VHS copies (and TV version).
Stupid question I know, but is this also something you've sorted out?

For the record, I was joking. I'll try to make that more obvious next time.

Hi Ady

Thanks for the snapshots.....Wow!

You're definately a dedicated fan!

By the way will you have clips of it to upload on sites such as YouTube, becuase its good to make the project attract other fans, so that they can know of your expertise.

Thanks again (And I'm working on a custom fan cover in some of my spare time by the way)

I'll type back later.

I know one of his trailers made it to YouTube without his permission. Isn't that right, Ady? Or do I have that wrong? I would worry that YouTube would attract too much attention before the film is finished...But maybe I'm just paranoid of Lucas' goons at this stage in the game...

Well eros, i see you have a witch as your avatar. If you think we're all geeky, whiney bastards here then why don't you just remove that broomstick from your asshole and fly yourself out of here. Why do you never have anything constructive to say nowadays?

Now this all depends on the quality of the DVDplayer & the screen its being shown on. Viewing using some high quality components can make viewing even a DVD-5 look good on a big screen. Of course it would be nothing compared to HD
Maybe you and remixerboss should start you own website where you can just sprout shit at each other all day.

Yes, you are correct. Someone posted the first trailer to youtube pretending to be me. Since then he handed his account over to me so any clips in the future posted by adywanuk will be through me. I might put some clips on at some point but probably only a couple.

Adywan, I was just curious if you did anything with Luke's and Ben's entrance into Mossisley ( The immediate entry where the speeder flies over head and into the the city. ). Lucas changed the look of it twice, and I was wondering if you changed anything about it in your version. I cant remember if it was talked about in this thread or not. My apologies if it has been.
