Fair enough. White it is! 😄
I rendered a clip with the ROTS-like color… it’s ok but then there’s that color over the stormtroopers’ armors, and in those shots it looks bad…

Yeah it’d be better to correct RotS to pure white.

While I don’t care for any of your story edits, your color grade (aside from a few shots) is amazing. I’d love to have just a raw version of the SE to work from with that color grade, although I’m guessing that’s really an option. Ah well, no worries. I can color correct it myself.

That’s so… direct. I like it! 😄
Nah, I don’t think I’ll release a color corrected-only version.

I know you won’t. I just wanted to congratulate you on the stunning color grade.

But after all, ANH is among my least edited SW movies. Concerning the story aspect, there are only some cuts here and there.

Other comparisons.
I’ve been working on the Tatooine scenes. The outside shots look fine to me. Still not sure about the Cantina’s interior, but I wanted to give it a Mandalorian look. Any thoughts?

I don’t know if cold blue really suits the cantina in ANH. The reason why it’s shown like that in Mando is because they want to show how desolate and abandoned Tatooine has become, so it doesn’t really make sense for it to look like that when there’s still a lot of people there.

Fair enough. I’ll just increase lighting a little bit 😃

Some of these shot have a little too much added contrast. Tatooine should instead have more saturation in the sky.

Author

As soon as possible I will. I’m finishing Tarkin’s uniform in that sequence. BTW, in the original I added music, I added shots of a planet exploding from a documentary and then replaced Alderaan with Krypton from Man of Steel.

You mean in the Alderaan scene?
I changed the “wall” color a little bit. In the first edit I turned Naboo into Alderaan (even in the prequels, and for Alderaan explosion I added a shot of Naboo), but for this V2 I’ll go back to having two different planets.
Nontheless I think I’ll re-add the short shots from the documentary to make the explosion more dramatic. Also, if possible, I’ll take the Alderaan shot from Episode III and work on it to make it look like it’s going to blow up.

EDIT: Anyway as soon as I finish the scene I’ll upload it. Not now, my little dog is probably going to… you know, pass on to a better life.

Yes I did mean the Alderaan scene. That sounds great, I can’t wait to see it!

I’m so sorry to hear that, I recently had my pet baby corn snake randomly die, and my oldest dog died on Easter, so I know the feel. Take your time to grieve bro.

I’m back with a video. I needed to work on something to distract myself 😃 So I finished Tarkin’s uniform, and I worked a little bit more on the Alderaan explosion sequence.

Don’t mind the final music volume nor the lights/darkness of the laser control room.

My jaw dropped. Absolutely stunning. The CG work is amazing and now it matches Rogue One with how the Death Star slowly rips the planet apart rather then just blowing it up in an instant, which is much more terrifying. This is definitely my favorite version of the Alderaan explosion ever done.

The only thing is IMO the choice of music, while definitely not bad, isn’t the best. I actually think Anakin’s Betrayal would work extremely well.

Thank you. The explosion additions are actually from a YouTube video of an asteroid hitting Earth, lol. I added a color correction to change reds into greens to match the Death Star laser.
I’ll definitely try Anakin’s betrayal for the final part.

Nice work! The extended explosion shots are great, and it’s a big improvement over your previous version. The only problem I really have is that in one of the shots, you can clearly see Japan getting caught in the explosion. Maybe you could flip the shot, or find some other shot that’s less recognizably Earth?

Did you make the entire explosion sequence yourself rather than using Krypton’s like you mentioned? If so, that’s damn impressive. My one big criticism is that the surface more like Crait than Alderaan. I also think that wave of destruction ought to be more green than yellow to match the laser. That and Tarkin’s uniform looks too blue in some shots. But this is pretty neat.

I didn’t notice that. I’ll flip the shot, because that’s the only acceptable sequence I found.

May I ask how this edit is going?

I do have a couple suggestions. I think it would be really awesome if this edit added the lights on Vader’s chest box to be consistent with the rest of the saga, and fixed the Luke lightsaber jumpcuts. I also think replacing the bland original white Death Star plans with the red Attack of the Clones ones during the Rebel briefing would be really cool.

Hey man.
Of course the edit is still on work. I just had to postpone it because I’m following an online course about business accounting (hoping to find a freakkin job later) which is pretty time-consuming, so…
About chest lights, I’m not sure I’m capable of doing that with the software I’m using. I’d have to mask the small positions and add some effect. I’ll have to see if there’s some quicker way to do that.
Luke’s jumpcuts can be fixed when he ignites the lightsaber (by making the appearance of the blade smoother). I’ll try to do that in other scenes (doors closing, etc) but I won’t guarantee a great result, lol.
At first I wanted to make the red plans, but considering that I loved Rogue One and how it made outdated effects look intentional, I think I’ll keep them white. I’ll enhance them a little bit, but they’ll still be white.

Of course I try and try again every small change, but Sony Vegas is not the greatest (nor is my editing ability, haha).
