this sounds awesome. am most interested in your extra shots of the battle of exegol. any updates on that?

i know there’s a B-wing shot that happens after the camera pans away from the horse riders on the star destroyers, and ofc that “deleted” ILM pan space shot too.

cant wait to see how this turns out

I finished Exagol a while ago but I’ve restructured the entire ending so It’s tricky to explain or upload the whole 47 minutes. It’s pretty awesome now though. It has a lot more weight and tension at the fact they could lose and the cavalry doesn’t come in until the last minute.

I’m not sure I’ve seen that deleted pan shot. Are you referring to the one Hal used? If not, do you have a link?

Really hyped by this edit.

Good to hear, Dude. Me too! Really hope I get sent the final 3 scenes soon…

Nice! What other finishing touches do you need to finish up for TROS?

We were truly robbed for such minimal footage of the overall climactic battle. A little bit too character focused for my own taste. Afterall, it is called Star “Wars”. but that’s just me, others may feel different.

I’ve just got some amazing 7.1 surround headphones so I’m just tweaking audio in places.

I can’t leave scenes alone so I’m just reworking some extra scenes using 5 different planets including Coruscant. Added a quick clip to my new Kenobi video.

I may leave the ambitious scenes of Rey building a lightsaber. But I’d like to try and get Ben’s boots following Rey for the end shot some how.

Other than that it’s all in the hands of other VFX artists that mostly involve colour as I’m colourblind and can’t finish them myself.

that sounds awesome! Could I possibly PM you for some advice/suggestions for doing fan edits? I’m a newbie, and just wanted to make my own “version” just for myself but am a little bit lost. I’ve watched your tutorial, but have a couple more questions.

Will The Last Hope be in 4K HDR by any chance? Sorry if i’m a bugger on that, its just my little obsession hah

Sure, if I’ve already done a tutorial on it then ask me questions on that video so others can see, if not then PM me. I’m crazy busy atm so I’ll reply when I can.

It was going to be 4k but for some reason the HDR goes all weird when converted to Mp4. No idea why but if I can fix that or get a 4k mp4 file then I will try again.

Just saw your trailer and commented. So I’m working on my own edit. I’m no VFX, so just re-cutting/pasting clips etc. I finally figured out how to export and keep things in 4K HDR. I’ve been able to take clips that other ppl use (ILM extended exterior space shot), using topaz video enhance AI to upscale to 4K, and then using davinci resolve to change the color metadata to HDR. Finally I use FCP to fine-tune and color match to the 4K HDR movie and export from there.

Oh, Really? I’d be interested to see those results.

I’d really like to release this in 4k but I’m not sure my computer can handle it. I’ve been having some serious rendering time issues.

Thought I’d test a bunch of stuff out with a trailer.

Oh I feel you on the rendering time issues. I can render in ProRes codec to keep 4K and HDR but the file size is humungous, and trying to compress it down to a H264 or 265 codec takes forever. I’m still struggling with a good/efficient workflow.

Let me take some screenshots and see if I can send/upload the differences

It says, "Sorry, we couldn’t find that page

Make sure you’ve typed the URL correctly, or try searching Vimeo. You could also watch one of the videos below instead."

EDIT: Nevermind.

After effects but the main effect rotates so it’s gonna take a lot more work to get right. Not sure I like the fade-out at the end.

The blue part in the middle of Anakin’s blade that we see in episode 2 represents the crystal broken in half, we see it again in TLJ

V4 of Crackling Saber Training scene
Things that I’ve changed in this version.

  1. “Crackled the heck out of it”
  2. Added fire particles to match Kylos Saber
  3. Added more glow
  4. Added more core crackle
  5. Added more flicker to simulate the instability of the Kyber crystal.

Let me know your thought. I think this scene is close to being finished.

Didn’t saw much fire particals^^ But thats probably my fault.
Some the crackle isn’t noticeable (when the saber is moving), but overall: superb achivement!

WIP Cave Crackling Saber - Things I’ve changed

  1. Added a crackling core effect
  2. Added fire particles
  3. Added a slightly bluer hue to the glow
  4. I thought the cave would be damp and wet so I’ve added some mist
  5. Toned down the whole effect as I had to up the brightness in order to see it compared to the day shots

Let me know your thoughts
