It’s a shame no one has been able to make use of his edit created by Jonh, Luke Meditating in what looks like The World Between Worlds, maybe it fits in a vision.

i’ve always thought this scene is amazing, could be a really good breath at the mid point of the movie, as leia dies and kylo gets stabbed or something

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

AMAZING! The last shot is perfect now.

screeching halt, suddenly time for complaints Buuut wait… is Coruscant cut off in the opening shot on the bottom left corner for a second? It’s pure black. Or is it another Star Destroyer?

Of course, it’s another Star Destroyer!! No, good catch, I’ll fix that today or tomorrow.

Also, MR, good call about the black dots, I had wondered what those were supposed to be. Like you said, an easy fix with clone stamp, thanks for pointing that out!

So those small fixes plus I’ll try a tiny bit of light bleed and I think we’re there.

As for the Vader castle shot, Hal, if you send me the shot and the castle still image (if you have it!) I can put it in my queue, but again, this may be a case of me kind of disappearing for another couple of months! So if anyone else gets to it first, by all means!

Now that we mention it, (heh) maybe add a little light bleed around Kylo in the final shot as well? To ever so slightly clean up the still somewhat jagged looking curved edges of his cape? If the light bleed doesn’t look overpowering on him.

Save the Sebastian Shaw Ghost! Save the dream…!

Has anyone considered the flipside for RotS/Rogue One? Adding a little burned forest to the landscapes?

I felt like that was played with a long time ago but one of the big issues was color matching the shot … I mean, if someone could match the coloring perfect, that could work.

But the issue I can possibly see is is it a bit to “edity” to take a shot from another SW movie and reinsert it? Not sure how I stand on that topic, but it is something to consider maybe?

That’d be amazing but can’t see it happening.

i would love this but without the force ghosts & only leia & luke at the end & Leia’s lightsaber staying its original colour… I would consider this the perfect cut then.

Ok, here’s one more refinement pass of the Coruscant additions (same link as before):

https://vimeo.com/494722697
pw: fanedit
(new FX shots at :06, 1:24, and 1:26)

For this I fixed the edge error on the first shot, added light-wrap effect (bleed) to the Star Destroyer near the brightest part of the planet, removed the specks on the planet images, and even added a teeny tiny bit of light-wrap to Kylo in the last shot! I kept these light bleeds pretty subtle, because every time I tried to push them further they really started to feel added, if you get my meaning.

Awesome work, poppa! Not only does this add so much world building to this scene, it also connects to the montage of Coruscant added to the end of this edit quite nicely. We as an audience have now seen an occupying star destroyer floating above the former capital of the Republic and get to watch it fall by the end of the movie.

I think it is subtle, but goes to show the power of faneditting. This community is so talent and I am always blown away by what everyone can accomplish, but not remotely surprised either. Now onward to Vader’s castle on Mustafar when someone finds the time!

Hear, hear. Unsurprisingly excellent work from poppasketti.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Great! Hal, I made the Vimeo link downloadable, so if you select “original” you can grab the prores.

Thanks for the help and feedback, everyone. It’s nice to be able to contribute a little again!

It looks great! With the excellent “crackled saber” effect, I guess only Vader’s castle remains to be added to get a v2 complete, right? Unless there might be other things which could be improved ?

It looks perfect, great job Poppa! Wow!

“Because you are a PalpaWalker?”

Author

Things that make me say, “Yooooooooooooo” (a curated thread-relevant list):

  1. The quality of poppa’s work adding Coruscant and then making it even better?!
  2. The prospect of the cracklin’ Skywalker saber being added soon
  3. The compositing work on that Vader’s castle shot concept

So excited for the next version, everyone working on this is awesome!

I think jonh’s haircut would be the only outstanding piece not listed.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

It’s cool and all, but if that were in the movie it would need to be followed up on. I don’t think it’d fit into the movie as it is.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
