Na, your good. I didnt take it that way. Its something i’ve considered on my own since wanting Obiwan to have a green saber and all jedi masters (apprentices would all have blue). Plus i did a slight edit to them the other year snipping Leia and Luke kissing twice, and put back in Yub Nub to ROTJ. I deleted them with the intention of redoing them better, i just havn’t cause i don’t want to get distracted from the Prequels.

The Sequel Trilogy on the other hand, i have never had plans to edit, and still havn’t thought of a way to make them work. Though finishing what i’ve begun gives me time to possibly come up with ideas. Tech has come a long way and there is still lots of tech i havn’t acquired yet. Let alone fully learning how to use what i have even. So the ability to create fully new scenes to fill a narrative you’re trying to tell is getting easier every year.

Muclunkey!

Will try and get a new trailer up soon, just been super busy with art jobs and day job and life. Here are some screen grabs of some of the work going on. Some supercomp with Red Giant on most of these, creating lightwraps, haze, lightrays, etc. Putting in new lens/optical flares with Video Copilots Optical Flares. Dooku de-aged, de-wrinkled, and lightwrapped to fit his scene. Putting in video scan lines into monitors and binoculars. Changed the sky on Temple walk up to show city light glow in the sky, with no stars visible. To replicate living in a big city and light pollution. Quigon in Theed got heat blurs behind the fire, flicker, glow, etc to look more acurate. And a quick look at a Broom boy test.
The supercomp is cool and helps a lot in compositing along with speeding things up. Though to do it, i need objects separated from each other which means more rotobrushing/rotoscoping. So speeds up somethings but adds more work in other ways, the results i think are worth it though. I consider every critique and want to take my time to make these look the best that they can and should look. Once again, ill try and get a trailer up soon to see much of this in motion.

WHAT IS THAT FINAL SHOT OF ANAKIN ???

Broom boy!! Test shot for Anakin having a sunset moment. Though im thinking of locating it closer to town or in town. Possibly from his back yard while working on podracer.

Nice idea, visually it could be more than pleasing 😃

I think it will be nice, specially with the other sunset moment shared between Obi and Quigon. Like signifying new beginnings. The other planned scenes will be a little trickier. Trying to create a short bit of Anakins hard slave life.

Muclunkey!

Thank you! Hoping the new Anakin scenes will be a fun addition that also expands the world a lil more

Taking my time and going a lil slow but heres an update on one shot (Looks cooler in video with fires glowing and flickering on the right, and shifting light rays through the fog and smoke.) Since i have acquired new tools, it allows me to go more dramatic with the changes i can do. Also means having to completely redo some scenes, but this is ok because it allows me to fix other things and just generally improve the over all quality. Everything is getting faster and easier to manipulate though, so all in all good.

This is a comparison between the original and revised. Revised adding cracks, haze, smoke, depth of field to the buildings past the arches, light wraps, shadows from clouds and such, etc. The idea is the city just got bombed, theres fires and smoke everywhere, and the sun light is not able to cut through as well. A new sky was included to fit the scene. Buildings split into 3 layers foreground, mid, back etc.

Muclunkey!

Goddamn. These just get more and more impressive. Seeing this made me think, though - what are you planning to do with the narrative of the films? Whose narrative fanedit might yours be closest to? (I know you specify a lot of changes in your OP but I’m wondering about your narrative approach/goals, etc)

Oh, and please tell me you’re cutting the scene in Ep1 when Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon use force speed to escape the Droidekas, which isn’t used again in Star Wars, and especially not used when Obi-Wan needs to move fast through the closing forcefields to get to Qui-Gon to save his life.

You also mention that your plan for Ep2 is to have Padme remain Queen. I’d vote against this for two reasons - Firstly, that many other sources refer to Padme as a senator, most notably the Clone Wars (which people are especially into since it just had its finale, which works really nicely with Ep3); and Secondly, that Leia being a princess still works because she’s adopted by the royal family of Alderaan, making her legally the daughter of Queen Breha Organa.

Correction: Luke uses it to escape the carbonation shaft in ESB.

Personal note: PLEASE DONT

That’s a fair observation, yeah. To me it’s always felt like a really unnecessary addition though, one that raises more issues than it solves.

Thank you! I havn’t seen most edits tho, only a few like the Anti-Cheese edit. I purposefully avoid others edits for now to keep mine original and unique. Somethings may overlap or have had same ideas but generally they’ll be different. Only things ive adopted so far is the inclusion of Dooku into Council and Funeral Pyre. Along with the idea of Mace facing Sidious alone. I take suggestions here to mind but thats about it. So i couldn’t tell you whose its closest to.

The Revised versions will be a more serious, and gritty war story. Ep I will have an actual attack on Theed to demonstrate whats at risk and the loss. Along with what the heroes are fighting for. Dialogues will be trimmed to be less cheesy, or changed outright in the case of the aliens or gunguns. The political stuff will stay but with more of a view of the city watching events play out some, and the viewer seeing the effects of the war in the news, citizens, and city. Less traffic in the sky by Ep III, More destruction like in Ep III from federation attack on city to take Palpatine. More news propaganda reflecting war time life. Tatooine life and slave life will be made to look worse. Anakin gets a broom boy moment and different introduction. A possible dog fight between federation and Theed ships over the city. The escape of Naboo will be more of a fight to get out, as the Queens ship is aided by fellow fighters.

Idk how to answer your question best though.
