That guy with no name said:
If I may say something about this shot.
The background looks good… The theatrical version was red and was not tinted blue to make it purple.
The Special edition was Blue without enough red to make it Purple.
It should be purple but some reason it’s either Blue or red.
I would go with theatrical version and add blue tint possibly more shadow detail. Certainly despezialized has detail on 3P0’s black chest which I’ll assume was upscaled GOUT sourced.
any chance of adding the red lights to the moisture vaporator?
I like the addition of the missing targeting computer on Gold Leader pulling out the trench but It looks a little low in the frame.
Keep up the good work.
That video gave me an idea, I’ll retry the shot using the 4K Blu-ray source. it will probably have more detail and be easier on the eyes.
Yeah well I just realized something about the binary sunset shots…
Note in the Purple version there is a white sun
In the red version there is a more yellow / red sun.
Yes there are 2 versions but what I think was meant to be the process was that on the white sun in the purple theatrical version the Red version is Luma Keyed in for the white space and then red sun with a feathered edge bleeding through the purple.
To be honest the more Red with a blend / feather the better. The process was never done. It is a half way done shot.
I would treat the theatrical version as sort of correct without this extra step applied. AS in it’s missing the final composite of the Red sun.
The moisture vaporator on the right being black is the same sort of issue it’s not composited into the shot but the hole for it is there.
