I like it! Much less washed out to my eyes.

Yeah, your previous screen grabs had me worried this would almost be a b/w version. I like the new look. Still a little washed, but not as drab as before.

I’ve seen some of the screenshots of that edit. It’s definitely an improvement, though perhaps a bit overkill. The movie already looks better with the blue tint removed/reduced, though it looks very muted now. Still better than the original in my opinion.

Love the color correction! That was really my only problem with the movie, as well as L3. I was liking a droid character like that for a minute, but her voice is way too loud and irritating for me to empathize. I am a bit bummed about your removal of Maul, but more curious to see how Qi’ra leaving will flow in your edit. Looking forward to it!

I stepped away from this project for almost 2 weeks just to give myself some fresh eyes on it. I just finished up the final touches and started the render. This one is done and should be available in the next few days. 😃
My utmost respect goes out to all you colo(u)r correction all stars out there. You know who you are 😉

Thanks again for the encouragement everyone!

That’s amazing! Looking forward to the finished product. This will probably be my favorite edit of this film thus far.

A little disappointed. My Thor edit was a test for using an iTunes file as a source and it worked great, imho. After a few renders of The Coaxium Heist I’m just not satisfied with what is being produced from my Solo iTunes source. I’ve tried a total change up to the color correction to see if it’s due to the secondary correctors I have in place, but it’s still looking softer and more pixelated than I was expecting. I don’t want to increase the bitrate higher than the source as it won’t really do anything besides inflate the file size…sigh

I’ll be hunting for a good price on a Solo Blu Ray to create a lossless source. I originally told myself that I didn’t want this movie, then a great price on a digital code presented itself and I gave it a go. After the many hours of interacting with this film I’ve become pretty fond of it. I should have just bought the Blu Ray to begin with and stopped kidding myself that I wouldn’t buy a Star Wars movie…I bought TLJ and I thought Solo was better… :rolleyes:

Sorry, didn’t mean to create unnecessary hype. I want this to be the best it can be before sharing.

Totally understand, and thanks for letting us know. There is no rush! Sorry you have gotten this far and realized you’ll need to go back and redo a lot, but if you’re gonna do the work, might as well make it look as good as possible.

Also, I’m happy to hear you’ve grown fond of the movie as you have been working on it. I’ve had a similar experience myself, the more I go back and watch bits and pieces of it. I’ll go in wanting to just watch one scene, but then I have trouble keeping myself from watching the whole thing!

I am also curious about the progress of this.

Sorry for going dark. Real life picked up fierce this past few months. Good news. I bought the Blu ray to upgrade my iTunes source. Bad news, the files are out of sync with the project file. Presently going through every cut to match the scenes. While it’s a headache, it will ultimately strengthen the cuts, hopefully.

Keep up the good work and take all the time you need to make a good finished product.

Spent last night syncing up video. Reviewing deleted scenes to add. Probably just the extended chase and some clips from Mimban. Will need to do a complete overhaul of color correction for the new BR sourced video.

Currently working on color correction. With Summer approaching I’ll have a bit more time to work on it so I’m hoping in late June early July.

Just finished rendering a preview file. I’m currently looking for a handful of people to preview the edit. I’ll be streaming it via Plex so if you have a plex account and PM me your email I’ll add you to the server preview list. Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me along the way.

Excellent news ! I’ll probably give your edit a try. Congrats on finishing it 😉
