Friendly reminder, because I know the comments/requests are coming:

All “Rey Nobody” work is being done here: https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/REY-NOBODY-A-Collaborative-Thread/id/76772

The Ascendant thread is not for talk of a “Rey Nobody” edit, at least not for a while. The dedicated “Rey Nobody” thread is a better way for the community to work on ideas that will be more universally applicable than just Ascendant, and Hal has said he will look to that thread if/when the time comes for an official Ascendant variant.

Yeah, I can’t thank you enough Lawdog. I was worried the “crackling saber” edit would be stuck in purgatory, but having the full files for almost all the scenes makes this edit’s completion seem closer than ever.

Oh wow! I was gone to get some food and video games to come back and find out that I’ve helped out a great deal.

I was only bringing something to mention, but I’m real glad I actually did something good for the edit. Your welcome, everyone!

You have brought hope to those in the galaxy that had none.

Thanks! Just waiting on NeverarGreat on Rey’s eyes. I also hope he gives her Sith yellow eyes when she flares her teeth too, aside from replacing the milky white ones.

Current plan is merely to remove the
milky eyes. To me adding Sith eyes was excessive.

I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently.

Well, after consulting with a couple people via PM, this does change things.

I’m announcing a new goal (goal, mind you) to release V2 in time for the film’s 12/20 anniversary. Failing that, Christmas. You never know, and I don’t plan to skimp, so I won’t be leaving something out and have to do a V2.1 or anything.

Thanks, Master Lawdog!

I’m only replying from Hals first request, not had time to read the last page of comments but from what I remember Kewlfish wasn’t happy with the cave shots. He gave me most of his AF templates but not those shots or none of the original footage. When I worked out which plate went with what shot they were all off by a few inches and some had double frames so it was easier for me to start fresh.

I’m not sure what the issue was, maybe mine was 800p and Kewlfish used 1080p? It was a year ago so can’t really remember.

I showed the community reworkings of Kewlfish, Luka and my own saber effects but people preferred mine which unfortunately included 5 layers instead of one, so it took forever!

I then noticed I was using a badly compressed source rip so will have to redo those again now I’ve mastered a bluray rip.

Basically, every scene I finished, I learnt a new technique which meant redoing each scene again. I lost patience, time and the ability to work for hours as my computer now overheats and crashes before saving.

I haven’t even been able to open any AF projects in 5 months so I’ve no idea what was finished or not but I’d like to keep the 5 layer effect just for continuety but I’ve no idea when I can even start fan editing again cos life hates me right now.

I hope that helps and any questions?

In short, V2 will use Luka Frik and kewlfish, and if the universe sees fit to bestow upon MR the time, resources and fortune to complete a huge task to improve it, we’ll thank the heavens and enjoy that then. But if not, we can rest knowing we will not starve.

I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently.

Certainly easiest, yes.

I’m glad you’re open to updating things with MR’s work once he’s able to edit again, and I’m really glad we’ve got a serviceable version of the crackly saber in the meantime. Seems like a win-win. I never thought we could get V2 by the 2 year anniversary, this is really great news!

Author

I certainly didn’t either. I’ll see how quickly things can come together!

If you’re going with the one layer Saber let me know once things are laid up, if there’s any missing parts I’ll try to help where I can. If its just one layer, no scale change or masking around object etc it should be fairly simple. Just not sure how quick my computer will let me work…

Or I could teach someone the effect to get it done in time.

This might be something we can discuss MR.

So in the scene between Rey and Luke, everything from his haircut, to desaturating the blueness of his ghost to grading the footage to take place at dawn has all been done in one?
