Nice. Looks very clean now.

Bugs me a little how the taun taun says "rampant rabbit" as clearly as it does, with the wampas claws inside its throat. Perhaps a little blood spirt from the taun tauns mouth maybe? Hey, how about even over the lens.

Ady, I'm going to name my first child after you...

I'm totally impressed both by the number of FX you've inserted into that clip, as well as how subtle each of them was (it was only on my 3rd viewing that I believe I finally caught all of them).

You ARE the Star Wars god :)

Oh man... This is The Empire Strikes Back, not any random episode of The Simpsons over the past 5 or 6 years, where they use buckets of blood for cheap "laughs." ;)

Watching the clip again this morning (sober) the alterations so far to Ep.V are like a subtle enhancing, which is the road I think most people wanted to see this edit go down.

You don't need me to tell you this, but keep up the quality editing marra.

i like the added guys outside echo base. Nice work. I had to double check just to make sure they were not always there.

I never noticed them until u pointed them out! They look like they belong there, Where did Ady get that element from?

That 2 minute preview just got even better. Your subtle touches are some of the most enjoyable for me. The colour on the preview is a knockout!


For your consideration today -

Do you think you are able to add a touch of 'brick red' colour to some of the Millennium Falcon's relevant 'individual' panels? I mean on certain 'close-up' miniature shots where these panels are too darkened to 'black or dark grey' sometimes.

Shots such as the top and underneath of the Falcon, as it 'swerves' in 'close-up' during the asteroids from right of the frame to the left (A similar move by the Falcon is seen when it is shown going in the other direction, as Lando flies it for the first time alongside other rebel fleet spaceships, where it's 'rusty' red panel colouration is nicely obvious and far better-looking, although I realise the 'Empire' SE's overall colour is dark during the asteroids now)....and shots like when it turns to attack' the stardestroyer in 'close-up' to us....and during the miniature 'close-ups' where it travels with the rebel fleet at the end.

During the more 'blurry', faster-moving shots like the underside of it's 'attack' over the stardestroyer's windows, it would be nice to get a hint of an indistinct, brief flash of the 'brick red' panel colour if possible. For instance, if you freeze-frame the shot in 'Jedi' where we see the fast-moving underside of the Falcon, just after Lando has ordered "Pull up, all craft pull up!", that is a good example of how I mean it should look. I always liked the 'rusty bits' on the Falcon design, and too much of it is lost in inconsistantly-coloured shots now I feel.


Being one of the more poorly-realised 'design continuity' errors, this is one I'd REALLY like to see improved on, if possible - The moving 'practical effect' showing the top of the AT-AT's leg, is totally the wrong shape....

In the 'close-up' shot of the AT-AT's underneath, as Luke's cable 'rappel-attachment' sticks on after he shoots it upwards....and the 'close-up' shot where he is dangling from it using his Lightsaber....the 'rounded' end of the moving 'leg joint' is a far different shape to the better actual miniature design of that part. The 'rounded' bit of this prop, nearest to Luke as he kicks off it, should really have been more of a raised, 'hollowed-out' circular shape with the raised protuberance in the centre of it, with what looks like some holes (?) around that, inside the 'hollow' too. Can this in any way be improved to match the pieces seen in the colourful explosion that follows underneath the model?

Were are talking about Ady's newest clip, not the split screen. The amount of people outside the base are the same in the split comparison, but in the newest clip he released after that, Ady added more rebel soldiers.

Oops, forgot to get that one. *downloading* *watching* Ah yes, very cool! That one guy is a little stiff. but that's ok.

I didn't say so before, but I really like the way Hoth moves when the probe is heading down towards it. :) And man does that flame trail look good compared to the old pink streak!

I love the new troops. I agree that they look so natural there! I also like the fact that the new ones standing in front of the turret block most of the empty entrance I was complaining about!

So, besides the correct colors, the boom mike removal, and the new troops, is there anything else we should have noticed?

Looks like Ady covered up the arm of the Wampa arm puppeteer when it chokes the TaunTaun, as seen in the comparison clip, on the far left you could see part or the puppeteer's sleeve. Ady covered it up.

The only things that I would find better, is making the eyelids of the Tauntaun smoother and not so mechanically jerky, and maybe somehow getting the Wampa paw to come in better contact with Luke's face as it knocks him off the Tauntaun making his face scratched and bloody.

Otherwise, this is already shaping up well!

Drat. I was hoping to watch these clips, but I can't get past Rapidshare's "cat/dog" mumbo jumbo.

Yeah, I wish it was "happy hour" all the time there. (where you don't need to enter a password) Those cats and dogs are so blurry and warped sometimes that it's hard to tell which is which. Oh well, still a great storage place!

Well, I've just spent my Sunday morning reading all 45 pages of this thread - doing some catch up reading on everything I've missed while I've been away for a while (had some pressing Indiana Jones work to do on some other web sites). Anyway, all of this is shaping up quite nicely and as Ady and I already discussed more than a year ago, his vision and my vision for the revision of the SEs is simpatico and this thread bears that out.

Ady, I know the color maskings are driving you up the wall, but I have to tell you the results so far have been OUTSTANDING. Don't worry too much about getting the color from the pre-THX and Revisited to match - Your eye alone has proven to be more than up to the challenge of delivering these movies from the hellish blue tint of evil that has all but decimated the DVD versions. And getting the colors back to a realistic pleasing balance is what counts, not matching to pre-THX whatever.

As far as the effects and changes, you already know you and I are on the same page. Just keep one thing in mind - If you're adding any ships at the end with the Rebels, let's remember that the full Rebel fleet wasn't assembled in one place until ROTJ - "Hurry, the Alliance should be assembled by now." - To my mind that means that the ragtag group that escaped Hoth would not have yet rendezvoused with the Mon Calamari fleet until ROTJ....

Can you tell I'm making a case to keep any ROTJ unique stuff out of Empire? :)

But whatever decision you make, I'll ultimately support it as always. Keep up the great work, old friend.

It's easy if you try. Look carefully....it is possible to tell the difference between the two.

I love everybody. Lets all smoke some reefer and chill. Hug and kisses for everybody.

And if you get it wrong, you only have to wait a couple of minutes until your next try, at least.
