I was wondering why he changed geography and flipped this shot:

For Continuity.

Any time you see that Ady has changed the composition of a shot, specifically flipping it, it's most likely because A) it was flipped before and restoring it won't hurt continuity; B) it was flipped before and he found a way to maintain continuity and restore the shot; or C) the continuity was wrong before and flipping the shot has fixed it.

Ady also takes much greater care with his flipped shots than any professional editor would - if there's anything that would give it away as a flipped shot, he usually fixes that, too.

Looking at it from a larger perspective, I'm still not sure if I see grain.

You need to see it IN MOTION - that's the point.

We're not saying there is grain there where there shouldn't be, or vice versa.

What we're saying is that real film grain CHANGES from frame to frame, while the grain on the window-frames stays static and EXACTLY THE SAME throughout the entire shot.  That's not what grain is supposed to do.

Watch the 720p ion cannon clip, which is where this comes from.  If you look very closely at the officers' uniforms, you can see very faint grain that MOVES as the clip plays.  But if you look at the gray window-frame behind the officers, the grain does NOT MOVE at all as the clip plays, which makes it look unnatural.

I also noticed while looking at the clip again that the grain on Hoth is static, as well, but it's not as noticeable because the planet is moving slowly.

ok before this grain thing gets out of hand i better pop in and reply.

the grain IS added to the sample clips on the mattes but the grain animation is deliberately disabled so becomes static. the reason for this is because they are just that... sample clips. Enabling the grain animation filter increases rendering times drastically and it just isn't worth all the extra time needed for a sample especially when i will probably be tweaking the shot and rendering it several more times before i am happy with it. the clip at the end of the trailer has been slowed down by over 50% just for the trailer so the grain will look unnatural. but when you say that the final trailer shot background replacement looks distracting it would be interesting if you could post a screenshot and outline the matte that you think looks distracting.

and janskeet, please at least bother to read whats already been discussed in this thread (and the ANH:R thread too for that matter) because its becoming a bit annoying when you keep asking questions that have already been discussed in length and fully answered already. you have been a member here for almost a year now so can't use the newbie excuse. if you can't be bothered to do that then please don't be surprised when people can't be bothered to answer your questions

Oh nice... The trailer :)

Edit: Wow! just wow!

I have something to say. I love the emperor, the cloud city clouds. the blue engine of falcon and the retraction pads.

I d love to keep the lasers that the TIES firing at MF at the asteroid chase( adds more color to the scene)

Impressive duel shot! (still Sabers never have a motion blur)

I love the subtle window frame that you put when leia is firing.

nice to see that you powered up the Shot that luke enters to Cloud City.

When Leia lando and chewie are running at the balcony scene, impressive sky still very blury masks.

I could expect something more like color dodge or linear dodge blue to luke's face from saber light

 

Thats all for now

I figured it was just a rendering thing.  The only reason it wasn't mentioned once and then moved on from was that I was trying to explain what we were talking about to Janskeet.  But it's good to know that you already knew about it.

And I knew the last shot was slowed down for the trailer (the blurry guy at the bottom-right gave it away).  The static-grain matte is the exact same thing as in the ion cannon clip - the window frames.  But since you've already got the grain thing covered, it's not like it matters anyway.

Checking this thread for updates has been one of my favorite methods of procrastination since I watched ANH:R, though I haven't felt compelled to post until now.  But having just seen the trailer, I have to say... it looks amazing!  Waiting for the finished product is going to be agonizing.

Adywan, you are a god among fans.

I've just watched the trailer here at work and WOW! I have never seen one of your edits before or any come to think of it and I am blown away by what I just saw. 

 

Keep up the good work Ady!

Some that cause my attention :)

The rest from 005

Edit: I just noticed that Vader's Chest lights in the scene after han is tortured, when lando and vadie are talking, aren't moving... Perhaps a ANH:R treatment?

THE TRAILER!

 

WOW

 

THANKS ADY!

 

Looks like you are outdoing yourself again. The shots of Bespin are beautiful. Palpatine is looking great..... I also like what you ended up doing with many of the other shots, especially the scene of Leia, Lando and Chewy running.

Angel -

The very first comparison in your post is backwards.  Ady's is on the left, the 04 on the right, when in all the others it's vice-versa.  Thought you ought to know.  :-)

OMG Adywan that was very impressive trailer, can't believe how amazing it looks. Im mostly impressed by Palpatine and generally everything to be honest. Few points i feel i must bring up is that the Hoth battle, the ATATs at the back look a little too fake, mostly due to lighting, i mean the front ones shadows are a light grey whereas the ones at the back are very dark. The bespin balcony scene look great apart from the outlines on each of the characters. Looks like they been badly green screened lol. Not your fault, its entirely lucasfilm but hope to see it improved if possible. The fight scene looks so much better, though watchin it i do feel like i miss the overly blue saber but looks so much more inline with the other scenes/films. Great work and cant wait till release, as usual i will be nitpicking and doin mockups if possible and try and earn my credit on the film lol.

Your friend and fellow fan

I was surprised at that too. Hope it makes it into the final cut, as I was really impressed with it.

Anyway, um...is it 2010 yet?! ;) That was great, Adywan! I literally said 'wow!' when I saw that shot of Cloud City. Stunning! Very nice trailer that doesn't give too much away.

Hope that ISP nonsense gets sorted. :p

I just watch the trailer.  Let me start by saying, "ROARIN' TO THE EXTREME" (That means that it is the best and I really love it)

 

And let me close by saying, "I uploaded the trailer to my YouTube profile for all to enjoy."

Just scroll up to Adywan's last post, which is on this page. :p

Oh, and nice that you put it on YouTube, G.E. Predator, but blimey (and no offense, but) the quality is AWFUL! :p Ladyferry (a.k.a. shellatella) will no doubt upload one that can be downloaded in high quality, and with the right aspect ratio to boot.
