A quick tease at some of the new scenes too. De-aged Dooku is mixed in.
Just got Element 3d to start doing some of the other planned new shots including space fight and dog fight over Theed. So ill have 3d modeled ships that i can fly any which way and do added combat. I may even be able to replace Qui-Gon’s saber with Obi-wans from ROTS now since i have a 3d model of it that can be positioned in any angle to match the original shot. This is all still done in After Effects.
Ill still be doing Blender to create new back grounds and such though. Ive already been learning about building cities, death star trench runs, roof tops, ships, etc.
These steps are to broaden my capabilities and skill and allow the story to open up more in where i can take it and what i can do. To also not be limited to what material was filmed by Lucas.
This is a demo clip for one such tutorial ive learned a lot from. Both on using 3d models and most importantly, lighting the models accurately to look more real. The clip also uses Copilots Orb Plugin which i already have and use (how i created new Naboo.) So im very pleased with how things can look and where things can go.
Still wish i had the right video camera and set up to film some people though. Would love crowd shots, and various pick up of people reacting to things, like ships flying over head, explosions, troops in formation, looking out goggles, etc. Im not with out hope still, but until the Corona goes away, not much to be done any ways.
