Star Wars A New Hope: DSG Edit (SORT-OF NEARING COMPLETION) — Page 3

It looks pretty good to me, feels very Star Wars. I do see what you mean, with the initial explosion looking weird somehow.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

After a trillion years, I finally finished the Alderaan Explosion sequence to a degree in which I find acceptable. The colors are a bit overexposed but at this point I’m too tired to keep on going (lol)

I adjusted the size of the explosions a bit to fit in more in-frame and fixed the little jitteriness at the start. If you may find it a bit lacking in quality, its WAY better in HD.

Aside from this one, I decided to make two changes:
1.) I have decided to not do the speeder shadow removal + replacement because my current skills in editing isnt good enough to do that sort of thing, plus I can barely run any 3D rendering program such as Blender on this computer.

2.) I removed the Jabba confrontation scene in the SE completely using an iris wipe transition carefully masked to hide the transition from ILM, I’ll be posting that soon along with others.

As of right now the edit is heading its way into completion, however if I were to make a hypothetical V2, It would mainly tackle on the speeder shadow replacement + fixing the jump-cuts using fantamorph.

EDIT: Updated first post to update some sources and add these changes in

Gorgeous!

Pay it no mind.

Hey first time posting on this, the explosion looks good to me.

I realized after posting that the laser beam looked janky and weird. I soon fixed that and made it thinner, similar to how Adywan did about this shot.

If anybody wants to use the Alderaan shot, shoot me a PM and make sure to give credit.

Speaking of Adywan, I will be implementing certain changes from his Revisited Edition sometime soon.

I know for certain I’d love to have that Alderaan explosion, but I’ll wait until you finish your project. Shaping up to have a ton of cool stuff.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Heres the “final” version of the entire Mos Eisley sequence with temp audio, as I simply didn’t have the skill to refine the drive-by scene. The main things in this are:

-The recut entrance scene which was a page taken straight out of Adywan’s Revisited edition
-Redone matte with the correct time-of-day outside of the cantina to maintain accuracy
(although the all of the outdoor scenes are inconsistent in the film, lol)

I’ll eventually later on work on that drive-by scene for a future hypothetical V2 of this edit so until I get a better computer and learn how to do camera projection in Blender, it will be shelved for now.

To add some extra workload to my schedule for the benefit of this edit, I will be adding Yavin in the background of the battle scenes and will be basing this straight off of Adywan’s version to more effeciently do this.

EDIT: I realized that I uploaded the wrong file to Vimeo, but in the edit, the SE aerial shot of the speeder driving off after the mind-track scene is included.

Hello, as an extra little suprise I decided to upload this snippet of the Jabba scene completely removed and replaced with an iris transition that matches the style of the original optical versions.

I also updated the oriignal post for more information and updated changelist.
