Well, here’s a new pass of the Ochi ship!

pw: fanedit

I stripped out the audio to focus just on the visual for the moment. I rescaled every part of the shot, tweaked the ship and rotation, added some sand blowing texture to integrate the elements, and removed the hyperspace jump to see how that felt. I could also consider reversing the direction of the movement so Kylo is moving the other way.

I would love honest feedback! Generally, I’m wondering how close this is to being usable? I’m happy to keep going, but not sure how much further it can get!

its getting to a pretty good stage, making that ending shot more stationary helps a lot

That’s pretty great!

I think the only thing holding it back is that it seems as if the edges of the ship element are a little too soft and overall the ship seems like too much of a blur. If Kylo is out of focus, then the ship should be a little sharper, otherwise the only point of interest is the mountain, which doesn’t seem right.

Just my thoughts!

Would it be better (or even doable, because lol I don’t know how to do this) to not have as much of a smoke trail?

Hal, or someone else, what needs to be done with the squeaky wheel scene?

poppasketti Kylo’s hair seems like it’s blowing in slow motion while the ship is moving at normal speed.

I haven’t taken the time to comment on some of the new clips.

For MoviesRemastered, those look really good and seamless so far, especially the “quick” execution scene. Fantastic. The quicksand scene as well is seamless to me as well. May not be as “needed” to be shortened, but is done very well. I like it.

For Poppa’s Orchi stuff. it is looking better, but it isn’t quite there yet. It still sticks out to me, which is a combination of it being a still image simply shrinking and has soft edges.

I think the only way to make it look convincing is if there is a 3d model someone can rig to be used as opposed to a still image, it will continue to stick out since we need some subtle rocking and a not so smooth trajectory. Of course, that’s just my own opinion.

Your removal of Klaud is fantastic, not to mention you ending scene with the Falcon is great.

Well the puppetry stuff, mostly. In order to remove the bulk of it from the shot facing Rey from the front while DO rolls back and forth, it must be zoomed to the point of presenting pretty rough. It’d need to be… processed in some way. Upscaled, smoothed, or something I don’t know even.

Could you pass along the footage if you have it?

All good thoughts! I can work on a better mask on the ship (switch to Mocha instead of AE). That should be easy. I should also reinterate that the ship is not a still. It’s video, but obviously I’m limited to the motion in that particular shot, which is just it flying away from Rey. Also, krausfadr, thanks for the hair note. I’ll take another look at that!

As long as this doesn’t feel to abrupt, I think we got it: https://vimeo.com/432014515

In any of the other movies I’d think better of it, but in TROS it’s probably okay.

Yeah, I think that’s the solution! I’m glad we’re getting rid of this pointless subplot.

My preferred saga experience:
ANH (4K77), ESB (Harmy), ROTJ (4K83).
Everything else is optional.

The Klaud removal is seamless, great job.

The Ochi ship fleeing Pasaana is pretty good. The hyperspace didn’t feel right mostly because the ship’s movement was a bit slow and that made jumping to lightspeed from the atmosphere even less believable (compared to, for example, the Falcon ending shot) Now that the jump was removed it looks better.
I agree the actual trajectory is too straight, but it’s still a worthy effort since there’s not that much footage avalaible to do it.

Oh yeah baby, liking that! Anything to remove that pointless subplot!

Hal, that edit works beautifully! Nice!

Here’s another pass of Ochi (so sorry for inundating you, but sometimes when I have a few free hours, it’s best to work through it when I can!):

https://vimeo.com/430068518
pw: fanedit

For this pass, I redid the roto of the ship with Mocha so the edges should be clean and sharp. I also reduced the jet-stream a bit, added some engine pulses, and sped up Kylo’s hair to realtime. If the flightpath is still an issue, I’d have to rethink the shot a little bit or look for a 3D model (which I haven’t been able to find). Honest feedback welcome!

That is already an improvement! I’ll take a look on my computer to get a bigger screen look!

The Vimeo link isn’t working

Edit: never mind

Further edit: this looks great, almost like I’m watching a movie clip from the real movie

I’d recommend downloading the file from the Vimeo link (bottom right of the video frame is a download button, and select “Original”). This way you can see the film grain layer and the sand/dust. Just a thought!

I posted an idea earlier about changing Finn’s first line in the movie since him saying R2’s name felt a bit awkward but nobody jumped on it so I pulled out the only program I had (iMovie) and did my best to make a mock-up of what it could look/sound like.

I was able to cobble together 3 options.

The audio is very janky and it almost seems for the unaltered audio that there are two channels on top of each other, but in iMovie I don’t really know how to deal with that.

Let me know what you think!

I hope we can get in the Duel Of The Fates allusion during the Arena moment with the Sith cultists and the R2-D2 and C-3PO theme when restore 3PO’s memory.
