The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released) — Page 564

Hey y’all, I’m new here but I’ve been watching the progress of this project for some time and am simply astonished at how good it is. V1 was such a great watch and has become my personal head canon version of this movie; I can’t wait to see v2.

Also, that newest Mustafar edit is fantastic. It’s amazing how much just a little thing like that can add to the overall pace and feel of this entire scene.

I think if the Biomes shot were to be included, a lot of color grading and VFX to change the landscape would have to be done since the Mustafar atmosphere in Biomes is based on Rogue One, not The Rise of Skywalker.

Our current shot is literally modified Rogue One footage so I don’t see this being a big deal. This is the one change I’m really hoping will make it in time for v2.

^ MR appeared not to take it well when I hushed him about raising a sensitive subject about a now-banned member and expressed something to the effect of walking away, either temporarily or permanently.

Sort of an unintended parting gift from that other member, in effect. It sucks, and I hope he returns, but I don’t want to stall things indefinitely and would like to see V2 get finished sooner rather than later.

What exactly did he say? 🤨

Read through the past pages if you’re interested, it wasn’t too long ago. For his sake I don’t think we need to keep dwelling on this.

Right. For now, let’s just focus on the new changes and hope that MR will return to work full-time as soon as his computer issues are sorted. I’ve recently checked out a list of VFX-related changes he intends to make for The Last Hope, and it has left me quite hyped, to say the least. 😃

Where might I find skenera’s LUTs for the film? I’d like to try those out myself. ^^

Hopefully he won’t mind me posting this, but I reached out to MR and he told me he unsubbed from most threads and is just keeping in touch with some people via PM.

He’s having some computer issues and will hopefully rejoin the thread once they have been fixed.

@Testing really did a lot to hurt people’s morale around here…

Good to hear that! MR was always a very nice guy to have around here and it was a bit sad that whole misunderstanding

I’ve been talking to MR. He says that he is still planning on working on the cracked saber VFX, he just can’t do much editing at the moment due to computer trouble; but he’s hoping to get back into the game in the near future.

I don’t know if you’re still interested in the “Kijimi Rebellion” angle, Hal; but I was discussing that with axlanian recently. He’s had to deal with some stuff lately that’s prevented him from working on the film; but ideally, I’m hoping we could still put something together in the coming weeks. I’ve worked out how we could portray it; I think it’s just a matter of recording new dialogue and mixing the audio FX now.

There was a mockup of riot noises during Poe’s talk with Zori that I think worked well. I think that mixed with some riot VFX and some Luke graffiti or something would work great with the puppet show addition.

The quarantine second wind has died down, but there’s only so far we need to push the car to get there.

And I’m interested in anything that could work for a Kijimi insurrection, I just removed it because there’s nothing for me to do about it. But if something presents itself and it works, sure!

Cam, PM me if you’d like a link to my Drive. It’s got that LUT and a ton of clips I’ve used for my projects.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Awwwww, guys!! You’re gonna make me blush. I’m only swinging by to say thanks for the PMs sharing all the kind words being said me. I’m honoured you care so much.

PLEASE don’t let Testing take the credit for my departure. He’s clearly a sad little idiot who’s still gonna claw through sites he’s trolled to get a kick out people still talking about him. Hi Testing! 👋 Best thing to do is just forget he ever existed and carry on.😉

I’m still gonna finish the crackling saber vfx and other scenes for The Last Hope so I’ll share once they’re done but I can’t do much until I can buy a new computer that can handle long hours using After effects.

I have indeed unsubbed from a lot of threads/sites lately only because conversations seem to be going around in circles or crossingover too much with what I’ve already done in The Last Hope. I’ve been getting a lot of trolls saying I’m stealing scenes I’ve made myself or collab’d on but didn’t get credited. I’ve also had disagreements with other youtubers claiming my work as theirs and clipping my videos etc so this little disagreement with Hal was just the cherry on the cake.

Honestly, No hard feelings with anyone, I may return once I’m fully operational but for now I’m avoiding public interactions as much as possible because I’m too old for playground antics or conversations that don’t seem to lead anywhere positive.

If anyone needs help, advice or wanna run mock-ups/ideas past me I’ll still be on PM when I can.

As for Kajimi I remembered some talk about it … man so much time ago … In my mind, at least, to help it feel a little more “natural” with the concept is not to make it full on rebellion/battle since it would quite feel right with the surrounding scenes that is is some kind of battle scene, but rather, more like a riot.

Why would trooper be knocking on doors and people being afraid? Why would the Poe and Zorri scene be so … “calmish” when they are in the middle of a battlefield? That’s why a riot, or at least something on those lines would be a bit more natural and flow a bit better in the surrounding scenes.

MR: Good to have you back and hope you can get a new computer! I know trolls and online stuff can get tiring, which it is good to take a break from time to time or whatever needed!

That’s a relief over here, thank you for expressing that, MR.

Hey, just checking in again after a long time. Did you guys ever finish Rey’s crackly saber?

Feels… inauthentic. Based on how Jonh has manipulated faces in the past I would think pulling real images of Shaw could work. But hey, I don’t know.

Those just… look like a recast for the role of old Anakin to me.

Nah, just seems weird to make it someone other than Shaw, granted it was out of necessity. Who knows, maybe something like that gallery would give Jonh just the right amount of material to work with. Certainly doesn’t hurt to have it exist.

Yeah. There aren’t that many images of him, especially when older. There are plenty of production photos of him in the Darth Vader makeup, though.

Also, I have to admit that some of the images I put together look a bit more like Denis Lawson (Wedge Antilles).

Just go off the deep end and add an uncut Sebastian Shaw baka mitai deepfake. It will look so bad that everyone will respect you simply for having the audacity to put it in the movie.

This may sound hilariously stupid, but what if somebody 3D modeled Shaw’s head and used photo-based textures for it? Then it could be composited into the shots for the redone ending. It would be a pain in the butt, but it might be worthwhile.
