@MisterBenja1977- Masking is the slowesttttt thing about redoing these haha but getting as many elements as possible and a lot of tweaking settings takes a lot of time. Elements have to all be blended properly. A lot of work going into scenes that may or may not be able to be used too. New scenes though, so if i can’t pull them all off it’s not the worse thing. I would love to figure out some new scenes of Maul on Mustafar. Like maybe that balcony scene is on Mustafar too. Im including Jedi Master Dooku, 10 years younger on the council in TPM. Which is actually pretty much done. The Federation connection to Maul and Sidious will be cut. The realization of Sidious controlling them will be revealed in ROTS when they’re explaining it to Anakin before he kills them. Dooku will be with them in ATOK but im likely going to remove the scene of Dooku with Maul. Not fully sure on that scene, may just leave it and improve the visuals of the bad cgi.

Muclunkey!

Amazing. Cutting out the obvious connection between the Sith and the Federation adds another subtle plot twist in EpIII.
Maybe you could show a clip or even just some screenshots?

I’ve been wanting to do a TMP edit for a while now, and the Naboo destruction is similar to what I was thinking as well. My only criticism would be that I think it is a little over the top in some areas. There are flames that appear to be 10 stories high. Other than that I think it looks pretty interesting. Just don’t get too carried away with the glows. Subtlety can go a long way. Great job

Jackpumpkinhead- I agree and those are all still being worked on and tweaked. I still have to add the glow/lighting on the buildings, fix fire elements/use new fire elements, better smoke elements, and lighting on buildings when explosions happen. Then some more tweaking to get all the levels right, blending, etc. Pretty much nothing in the trailers are finished. Just wanted to convey the general direction. I also jump around on the work to different parts of the film. Helps me get an idea of where the film is going. Also if one idea affects another, i can make adjustments easily.

I really really like this. A good idea would be replacing obi-wans lightsaber in AOTC with Qui-Gons green saber until he loses it in Geonosis

dgraham414- I may have to leave that to some one else’s edit. My plan for my version, is Obi-wan is a Master in Aotc, Rots, and Anh. Meaning his Anh blade that he has since Atoc is green. Though i was leaving it blue in the alt version for every one else and the version meant to be watched with adywans. Though we’ll see.

Edit-That’s also very hard to pull off very well. Most versions i’ve seen are alright but still kinda of obvious. Just all the angles of the hilt you would need to really pull that off is a lot and hard to do.

I mean you could just assume he uses Qui-Gon’s crystal. So that’ll work for my viewing pleasure where you’ll have a version of Episode 2 with an Obi green saber and Episode 3 with an Obi blue saber

dgraham414- There will be those for sure. Like i said tho, ill look at it and see what’s up. He only has it for a couple scenes (Speeder chase, and fighting Jango), and working on that movie is still a little way off. If it’s do-able, it wouldn’t clash with my idea. It would just mean that at first becoming a Jedi master, he used Qui-gon’s till losing it. Then using his Anh one in Rots and Anh. Would also show him being too hard on Anakin as he loses his own too.

Jedi Dooku looks surprisingly well, IMHO!
And I’m in love with the new Coruscant balcony.

Thank you! Im still tweaking it a little bit but glad its coming out good. He almost looks like Qui-gon now, which is kind of a nice touch since he trained Qui-gon. Was trying a rainy scene for the balcony scene, to add a little more mood to it. Any thoughts on the steam and sparks added to when the sabers clash, block laser fire, and to the blaster when they fire? Still have to tweak some scenes, but i really like when they’re entering the generator room and maul whips qui-gon’s blade to the right of the screen sending qui-gon into the wall. When that happens theres a streak of steam. I thought it along with when sabers clash helped add more power into their swings. (Also originally wanted to do it to replicate some of the look of when Rey fights Ren in TFA. Really loved the visuals of that scene. Which is why you see purple when Obi’s blade strikes Maul’s. To replicate some of that TFA look. Red and blue coming together for purplish flashes. Red and green creates more golden yellow colors. So for the versions preserving all normal colors, you’ll see a few different flashes. Like Sidious vs Mace, which will be more red with just a touch of purple.)

Considering that in a previous ROTS edit of mine I tried to add rain in the background of the Obi Wan/Padmé scene (and failed), I like how it looks.
The lightsabers actually look somewhat similar to Anakin’s lightsaber in the sequel trilogy, so IMO they look really cool.

Where can I find the new trailer with Jedi Dooku? Also, do you plan on re-editing the sequel trilogy films?

The unfortunate reality of the Star Wars prequel and Disney trilogies is that they will always be around. Forever. They will never go away. It can never be undone.

Dooku looks rough… But I can dig the concept, good effort so far 👍

Personally, I don’t think Dooku looks that bad. It still needs some work, but the lighting behind him helps…

The one where he tells her about Anakin? If so that would be a interesting look. Im curious to see that. And i was trying to get the look and color from Empire and Force awakens. I haven’t added flicker to the sabers yet tho. Still so much to do

To be fair it’s obvious that his face was inserted onto a random Jedi

Ill just update those links at the top when i update the trailer to make it easier. And i’ve considered it. I know ill do the original trilogy from Adywan just to bring some effects together with mine, namely just the saber flashes, sparks and steam. Though i’ve considered altering the ending of ANH. The sequel trilogy kind of just depends on how it ends and if i can find a good narrative thread to salvage some of it. Im trying to keep all of the movies i edit at least 2hr10min (About the length of ANH). So i have room to cut, but only so much. So we’ll see. I’ve considered doing Mandalorian into more of a movie too. Im sure others have too.

To be fair, there is only so much you can do. Just throwing him in with his ATOC duds and look would be equally as obvious or more. Especially if its just just a still image of him sitting there. Also it’s 10 years earlier so he should look some what younger. The levels i can adjust and mean too. His hair should be darker in the scene. Only way to get him in with jedi duds on though is to replace the original guys head. The fact you know this will ruin some of it no matter what. That’s the nature of seeing behind the scenes or seeing previous versions. I will try some other iterations or attempts though if and when i can. Sometimes its just a matter of getting really creative and resourceful. If you or anyone have any ideas or suggestions though i am open to them. I would like these to be the best versions they can be. Even if that involves working with others. I welcome it.

I don’t know… I notice it because I KNOW it is edited. Otherwise I don’t think I’d notice it too much. He appears just in a couple of scenes (maybe just one), and I’m already used to odd faces because of CG Yoda.
Personally, I would already find it acceptable the way it is now.

Yep, that’s the scene. But it looked soooo bad. I love that scene, I think the acting is quite good, the score is a wonderul crescendo, etc. But despite the emotional weight, it’s set during a sunny day. It kinda breaks the pathos.
In my previous edits I just changed the colors to make it look like it’s set during evening/night, but that’s all.

Just got to search around for some good effects over lays sometimes. Long as they are high res or used small enough for the res they are. This is how i got the finger print smudges on the Theed Pilot in the daytime shot. (Though im still smoothing those scenes out). When ever possible, i prefer real things filmed against a green/blue screen, or put to black so that you can use it as a screen. Then mixing what you can do in after effects on top of that. Some things i just can’t do. Like a new Jar Jar with more modern effects. Some one out there knows how to, I’ve seen thins done for Thanos. I dont know what programs to use or where to get started there but im working on it.
