I updated the shuttle shot to add a little bit of damage/wear! I agree with smpearce that it would help sell the model a little more:

Shuttle Tie Replacement
pw: fanedit

Also, here’s the falcon going into hyperspace with the ties removed:

Falcon Hyperspace - Ties Removed
pw: fanedit

Skenera did a great job extending the shot, but now the the ties are gone you may not need that extra time.

Also also, for the Mustafar establishing shots, if we come up with a sequence that Hal is happy with, adding 1-2 shots, I can probably add the ties to whichever shots are chosen. Rather than mock-up so many different shots with ties though, I was thinking to wait until a sequence is cut that everyone’s on board with. The only shot that would be of questionable difficulty is the first RO shot going through the clouds, but if that cuts well with the others leading to Kylo on the ground we can try to make that work!

Beautiful … just … beautiful!

This may have been discussed before I joined the forum, but what are Palpatine’s motivations in this edit? That was one of the muddiest parts of the movie was that he wanted Rey dead, but he really didn’t because he told her his plan was always for Kylo to bring her to Exegol.

I think the particular shots worth a try (in sequence) are:

  • TIE Fighters/Troop transports leaving the Star Destroyer. Maybe reverting the trajectory of the TIEs for that TFA shot of Kylo’s destroyer just before Poe’s torture here
  • TIEs approaching Vader’s Castle in the first Rogue One establishing shot.
  • Or… TIEs flying past the castle when seen from behind (all shots with Krennic’s shuttle erased). The lava environment is less prominent in the second establishing shot so that might sell the transition to woodland better.

Then the sequence would lead to the already existing TIEs flying over the forest. Then to the actual fight seen in the movie.

The only continuity nitpick against it is that TIEs are nowhere to be found during the actual slaughter scene. Maybe adding some TIE flyby sounds and green lasers in the distance could help?

If anyone wants to try the TIE shots, I added my latest (and probably cleanest) removal of Krennic’s ship from Vader’s Castle to my drive.

I would even advocate for more extreme damage such as a hole in one of the wings and/or burn damage. Really sell the idea that it’s been through a Death Star explosion!

What a grand and intoxicating innocence. How could you be so naive? There is no escape. Come, lay down your weapons. It is not too late for my mercy.

Heh, maybe I could try a little more! A lot gets covered up by the haze, but also the thing has to be flyable. It’s a little improbable either way!

Edit: It just occurred to me it’s hard to see some of these details on the vimeo. I made the file downloable from the link, and if you click the “Original” file it should give you the prores.

Needs more aging, so add bird poo on the glass. 😉

Poppasketti killing it again. Whenever you’ve got them how you like them send me the full quality export!

The TIEs in the opening shot appear to be heading toward the Star Destroyer, not down to the planet. If we cut to TIEs leaving the destroyer, I’d probably assume they’re different ones. Personally if we wanted to put TIEs in an extra shot, just going from the opening to a forest landscape with TIEs presumably heading to where the action is would work. Maybe a couple troop carriers could be there, as though the troops had vacated them and already left the area. But then we’re just opening a can of worms of what can or should be done with such a shot.

I’m happy to utilize any end result that feels natural, but I repeat I never was bothered by the way the film opens, other than the sucky crawl and mentioning Palpatine right off the bat.

Wonderful, thanks so much for doing that. Is that link a full highest quality export?

Hmm. Bird poo would do nice! I added a bit more aging and burning, no big holes because the thing needs to be flyable and I want to keep it subtle. Same link!

Hal, I just posted this and the Falcon lightspeed Tie removal to my Master Clips folder and sent you a PM. Also, both vimeo links are downloadable, so the “Original” download file is the prores!

No it’s just a test for fiddling around with. But if this looks good to everyone I can do a better export and see how the 5.1 comes out…

heil palpatine.

It sounds good to me, coming through my phone anyway. If each channel in the 5.1 mix feels right compared to its original, it should do fine. This’ll be super helpful in getting this together. The first thing I’ll try is the unused score for when Rey catches the saber in TFA. I just don’t think triple-dipping Burning Homestead would have felt right in the theater. It’s great but it was already (re)used in TFA.

There may be cause for an alternate audio track. That’d be a safe place to add music to scenes that didn’t have any, like the Death Star Duel or fight on Pasaana. And maybe using Burning Homestead for the saber catch. Just an idea…

OK, this should be closer: Part 1 and Part 2

Okay, I’m only on page 47 of the 108 pages in this thread, but that’s AMAZING. If you don’t mind, I’d also love to use it in my edit as well. Abrams, who’s entire style is prioritising visuals over story, surprisingly went with another dull blue lightsaber. (Back to catching up in the thread…)

I thought this video was very insightful on the score and I do feel like rescoring is the best way to go, unfortunately the only piece of music on par with the other films is the new motif that plays when they all hug at the end in my opinions

This video also made me think about re-scoring the film… but that’s such a daunting task for my free time, haha. He does a lot of great music analysis.

I made a little change of almost all the shots … so better if you replace them all! I made changes to Anakin’s hair, and changed the noise from other shots 😃

barely noticeable! but I am more satisfied with this version hhahah

The only thing I noticed is there’s no sound of Rey panting. Is this from the source material or Jonh’s clip?

Excellent work on removing the music perfectly though.

Her panting is audible in the source.

To refoley it from the source material I/others will have to selectively choose samples with the least music as it is all riddled with music. I had it refoleyed but deleted it by accident. 😦

heil palpatine.
