Ridley, that looks gorgeous! I can’t imagine anyone at Lucasfilm doing any better, 1997 or today. The characters’ faces and various surfaces each reflect the flicker at appropriate levels. The tunnel and its flicker are a good midway point between the newer movies and fitting in well with the 1977 aesthetic (or even a hypothetical GOOD 1997 SE aesthetic). The color looks good to me, just a little green to reach forward to the newer movies but not overwhelming.
If you feel like anything needs adjusting, I defer to your judgement, but I can’t fault it for anything. I’m very pleased with it.
Good to hear! I’ll make some adjustments and send the file when ready.
Wow! I love it!
When I was doing my version, I was playing around with the Battlefront model of the Falcon to see what you could see through the windows, and I think you shouldn’t be able to see the tunnel through Leia’s side. But I’m not entirely sure.
I’m glad you approve as well! I remember that you mentioned the view from Leia’s window before, so I took that into account. I actually looked at the Battlefront model as well (and used it for the exterior shot). I looked at the model from the inside at about the same angle as the shot of Leia, and the hull was visible but only covered part of the window (I guess it depends on the exact angle and focal length though), so that’s what I made it look like.
Oh my god, that looks perfect!
Ridley, would you mind shooting me a PM of the lossless (or ProRes or whatever) output as well? Once you’re satisfied with it, of course.
Thank you! I’ll send you a link, no problem.
