Plan to show broadcast like current affairs building up to Nazi Propaganda by Ep III. Will be doing a zoom in to the monitor at this shot as the feed fades from static blue to actually in the Senate Room, via the camera feeds floating around her head. This is after considering some critique of the movie from Mr.Plinkett.

I plan to show the city become more bare of people by Ep III and more war torn.

Really interesting.

Just figured out why some pix were posting smaller so they wont do that any more. Hoping to have a clip up soon

Muclunkey!

They both go. Not together though. Its implied that Sidious goes in secret to murder the children and the blame is laid on Anakin. Since its not something Anakin is ordered to do or would likely do. Then when Padame mentions the story told to her by Obi, Anakin dismissing it is because its more lies of the Jedi as far as he is concerned

Muclunkey!

Can’t wait to see it in the actual movie.
Just to know… when do you think you’ll approximately release your Episode I? I mean, it’s not my intention at all to put pressure, just to know if it’s a matter of weeks, months, or something like that 😉

Later this year or early next year probably. After the vfx are done, i have to work on audio and new voices being recorded in in my friends studio. I may redub the kid even when Sidious comes, just so he announces Mister Palpatine instead of Master Skywalker.

Im also trying to prep initial ideas for Aotc and Rots, so things between movies are consistent. Like the senate stuff on media, and the propaganda on media ramping through out the movies, along with streets and traffic becoming more bare as the war progresses. I want to make sure certain ideas will work too. Like i want to station Gun Gun guards at Theed in ATOC to show that the Gun Gun’s and Naboo people are now working together since the events of TPM.

I have other ideas for TPM i havn’t gotten to yet also, like trying to add extra scenes of Anakin to include earlier in the movie before he meets Qui-Gon. Establishing his life a little if i can.

Im scrapping movies for scenes of Christopher Lee, Hayden Christensen, Jake Loyd, and Natalie Portman to see what visuals or dialogue i can use. (I like Hal9000’s inclusion of Portman from the Boleyn Sisters at the end of Ep III.)

Muclunkey!

Do you plan to use the forming the Rebellion scenes for ROTS? I felt they made a huge improvement to ROTS.

Thank you! I don’t know why the other link isn’t playing but here’s a current trailer for example

The smoke plumes on Naboo resemble what would come from a camp fire instead of a burning structure. I’d suggest using something similar to the examples below.

(Virtually all solid materials will emit a white smoke when first heated. This white smoke is actually moisture. As the material dries out and breaks down, the colour of the smoke will change. Natural materials will change to tan or brown while plastics and painted surfaces will turn to grey.)

The smoke was something i considered a lot, so i tried to balance between white and black smoke. Ill go through though and see what i can’t do

Thank you. I know a lot of people felt it was over the top for Anakin to do given his motives. Sidious seemed just the man for the mission, and i don’t think anyone minds hating Palpy more. Also it allows us to see Sidious do something messed up with his own hands, instead of just using others. Somethings i think even Palpatine knew he couldn’t get Anakin to do.

So Palpy would want the younglings dead too, but know Anakin who is about to have a kid, would never likely kill kids. Leaving either the clones or Palpatine.

Muclunkey!

Perhaps just reducing the speed of the smoke would be enough? I really like what your doing here and am looking forward to the finished piece. Keep up the good work!

Ive done that a little but have to be careful of frame rates. I can look into buying some other elements for smoke, id like to have thousands of elements from fire, smoke, sparks, etc. Plus also when i get over to the Blender side of things, i will hopefully be able to do far more customize-able explosions, bellowing smoke plumes, buildings, ships, etc. There is a bit of it you can do in after effects with particle simulations, but blender seems the better option given that i can do structural stuff crumbling into ruin as the explosion and smoke happens.

I greatly appreciate your time and input and very much want to do what i can to make things as good as possible.

Muclunkey!

Ep I Progress

Intro Crawl- Still to be done, i have template for Blender for most accurate one i’ve seen. Its pretty spotless.

Diplomatic Negotiations - wanna tweak the planet a little more and smooth out a little more masking and tracking

Launching Invasion - View of Theed is done, only real thing is the new planet with the ships launching to the surface, then a shot of the ships landing is almost done.
(Establishing shots of Anakin- Still to do)

Meeting Jar Jar- Is done mostly, unless i can figure out some extra ways of tweaking Jar jar. Mostly he just needs to be redubbed with subtitles.

Gun Gun City. - Some more masking inside the City

Attack of Theed- Purist Cut scenes are mostly done other than looking for a little better elements for some smoke or fire. For the Rivised version i do still want to create a couple extra shots here with Blender if possible. Also clip last little bit of cord going to Queen’s light up dress. Fix grassy hills on fly up still needs to be done in Blender.

(Podrace possibly here- Anakin loses)

Rescuing the Queen. - A little bit more destruction and some more masking for the scene where the shadows were fixed.

Escape of Naboo- Smooth out some masking and a little more with adding extra fighters but mostly done.

(Qui- Gon’s freeing of Anakin will likely resemble my Machete cut. In which Qui Gon meets him after Anakin saves Jar Jar (Padame meets him first at shop still, though edited so Anakin is a little smoother) then storm comes and they are invited to Anakin’s home. There they have dinner, meet 3po, then next day while Anakin works on his podracer, QuiGon heres Anakin’s moms story. That night he test him and sends him to bed, no mention of midichlorians. The next day, we get an exterior shot of where Anakin’s master is at, and we cut in on him saying “No pod racer is worth 2 slaves!” with Qui Gon saying “One then”, they play the chance dice game in which Qui Gon cheats to win. Adding to the ambiguity of the Jedi’s actions through out trilogy. They then go tell his mother.

Deleted scene on Tatooine of Anakin and Qui Gon fleeing- Mostly done, but want to tweak a little to try to smooth out. Though would like to look into upscaling to try to get better rips of deleted scenes.

Maul and Palpatine - Mostly done, just some masking left on balcony.

Qui Gon vs Maul - Mostly done, a little bit of sparks and such but thats easy.

Jedi Council- Just a little left on making Dooku younger but mostly done.

Diplomatic t.v. - Mostly done

Jedi talking at sunset - Still want to fix sky.

Jedi vs Maul- Mostly done. Some tweaks to generator room and saber glows still to do.

Gun Gun field battle - Still a lot here. Hoping Blender can help a lot

Space battle - Some planet replacement, rotoscoping laser blast, engine glows, and masking

Queen infiltration - Rotoscoping blasters mostly.

Funeral pyre - Mostly done, smooth out some masking and tracking.

Mace stand in actor - Still need to fix.

(The order of events during main climax will differ slightly so each series of events isn’t over shadowed by the others. Going from winning to Quigons death etc. Want to space these events.)

These are most of the main edits as it stands with TPM and where im at with them. Most of the movie is being edited, but the work is coming along at a decent pace. I look forward to completing Ep I and cracking down on the next 2.

Muclunkey!

That Palpatine younglings idea fixes a MAJOR issue I’ve had with Anakin’s character development, or lack there of. Hope you can pull that off…well I mean I hate that scene because of what happens in it, but it makes more sense that it’s Palpatine.

I figured itd still be a little cringe, even for Palpatine. Natural human response haha but i figured it makes more sense for him to do it. The only thing i have to smooth out is his entrance into the room, but i found footage of him walking in the same outfit that works. Just retiming it and doing the masking. The shot of his face is of him smiling and his eyes glowing before the saber is ignited. In which it flashes from a close shot of his hand and saber to the behind shot, with the saber lit. Want to redub the kid so he says “mister Palpatine” instead of Master Skywalker. See if my buddies son wants to get in the recording or something.

Muclunkey!

Hey, first of all, i’m really loving your edit, really looking foward to watch them when they’re done 😄
But i have to ask, there is a video somewhere in another thread (maybe the PT redux) of Palpatine’s face morphing into the Emperor’s face during the Mace vs Palpatine duel, you plan to add this in your edit?

the dark side of the force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural
