Certainly won’t be the only instance of fast paced editing like that, but I didn’t notice it.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Hal, I feel kinda bad for pointing this out considering you just released this new version to fix a few video bugs, but I noticed that right after Rey slices Kylo’s face at the end of their duel, there are what appear to be pieces of another scene on both the left and right sides of the frame. It’s the only time I noticed it in the entire movie, so I don’t think it’s a persistent issue.

I also think the music is still a little to loud at Maz’s castle when Finn says “Where’s Rey?”, and when Han says “Where did you get that?”

Ugh, you’re right. I will fix that and reissue again. Can’t leave that as it is. You think you check everything…
Thank you; I’m glad you noticed this this soon.

How about adding Rey walking in so that she doesn’t suddenly appear in the next shot?

That would be nice. I remember trying to combine the shots but it would have required more masking expertise than I had. As it is, there is a bit of her walking in the background I was able to mask in, but if anyone can improve on it you’re welcome to try. 😃

Well, if you think it’d be relatively easy to do! Otherwise I’m okay with how it is. I’m nearly done encoding a corrected V5.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I’ll hold off on uploading a fixed version, though it’ll be ready to go. Let me know what you think, and thanks!

Hey Hal, sorry to bother you again with more problems lol, but I noticed that from 50:34 to 50:38, a black line appears at the top of the frame. Once again, it was the only time I noticed it in the entire movie.

Sweet, thanks!!

JEDIT: totally sincere, since I have yet to reupload for the last fix.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I think you can get away with it since it’s pretty blurry and it goes by pretty fast.
I did a full frame by frame masking, might need another pass. Also removed blue hue from the hologram on Rey & extended door frame behind the pipes so it looks like she comes out of it.

Let me know what you guys think:

Hey, that’s pretty neat! I can’t imagine anyone in the world would have a problem with it without awareness it was messed with and wanted to go frame by frame.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Yeah it feels pretty natural. I’d like to give it another pass though or it will bug me forever, but I’m glad you’re liking it!

Author

Sure, man! Let me know when you feel happy with it and I’ll be glad to include it. Thanks!!

I’ll get the fix for COD out in the meantime.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Looks pretty good. I have a couple nitpicks, like the door behind her is a little blurry and Rey looks to be a bit less contrasted than her surroundings. Other than that though, I wouldn’t have thought twice about seeing that in the finished movie.

I added a bit of blur to the background to make her blend better since she’s very blurry.

Not bad at all, it’s pretty good implantation and the tracking is done pretty nicely with just a few spots a little off. Right on.

I will say though, it does feel a bit “off” when you see most of her body. It does feel like it’s all too blurry and all especially with the background being blurry too.

If I could think of a suggestion, what if you implement her just first entering into the room when she is moving, basically when most of her body is covered by Finn/bench. Before it cuts to Han, you just see her “head walking in” that shows the audience she is coming into the room.

This allows the “blurry-ness” of Rey moving (just her “floating head” part) and allows you to not have the background/corridor to be blurry.

Do NOT self-destruct!

The background is already blurry, I just added a bit more to better match Rey’s. Here’s a frame comparison:

And here’s a new version with a more cleaned up mask:
https://vimeo.com/500257444

I did cut out a few frames at the end from Rey’s footage, but I think only having Rey’s hovering head in the back would be awkward, I like the way the shot frames all three characters (Finn, Rey & BB-8) before Han say’s “fugitives, huh?”.

At the beginning of the shot the attention is on Finn, who’s in focus in the center of the frame, then as Rey walks in the background she slowly pulls the attention, and before she comes into focus we cut to Han. Han’s actually looking up at Rey when he says “fugitives, huh?”, which is why I felt the edit made it feel like she teleports into place. With this version we’re also looking up at Rey at that moment so it feels natural.

I’ll give it one more look tomorrow and post a download link.

I’m done with what I think would be the final version. Added motion tracking, altered the masks some more, plus a buch of other tweaks.

I exceeded the upload limit on Vimeo so I can’t show a preview.
But I guess I’ll just share the download for the clip here for anybody who wants it 😃
