Watched the workprint last night (downloaded the file, not the preview on Drive). I agree with what others are saying about the LUT being too red, leading to characters having a “sunburnt” appearance. That said, I actually think it varies pretty significantly from scene to scene. Most of the stuff on Pasaana actually looks pretty good, as does the stuff in Kylo’s chamber, whereas the scenes on Ajan Kloss look especially red. I honestly think this is something that will have to be tweaked on a location by location basis, as each is graded somewhat differently.

Probably so, yes. Pasaana actually had its own LUT.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Just viewed the new workprint. I have to say that the work that is being done here is terrific and is beginning to restore my faith in saving Episode IX. I do want to still ask if the Rey nobody version is still happening, Hal?

FTFY

Seriously though, what happened to him? He hasn’t posted much of anything for a while, and he hasn’t made any updates on his TROS edit for a long time.

Is Rey Nobody going to be a separate edit? I don’t see it in the main post and honestly I prefer Palpatine -> Skywalker over Nobody

He probably has a social life, unlike our hive of scum and villainy😂

He is probably still trying to get some power converters at the Toshi station and got lost.

Do NOT self-destruct!

Once the main edit is done and the resources are there, I will release a Rey Nobody version as an alternate. But I’m considering the Palpatine one the main edit.

Yeah, Hal wanted to finish Rey Palpatine/Skywalker first and then further down the line I believe he said he would try to get a Rey Nobody edit out when he could.

Also I watched the workprint last night and was extremely impressed. I didn’t watch workprint 3, so I got to see alot of changes from watching workprint 2 and I have to say, I couldn’t believe how much I actually… enjoyed watching TROS (maybe I’m just going insane by how much time I’ve spent going frame by frame through lightsaber scenes lol) but I felt like the pacing issues have been fixed and the movie feels more epic overall.

I do have some slight nitpick however, super tiny stuff

  • Is there anyway we can put something between everyone standing around Leia after she dies and Poe n’ Crew being right there? I felt it was a little abrupt that they just happened to show up as they were standing around Leia’s body. (Super tiny nitpick but not the end of thr world lol)

  • After seeing the Knights of Ren with dialogue from axlanian and, I believe, Krausfadr… felt strange to not hear them talk in the movie… can’t wait to see what comes from that.

  • Is there anyway to add a Wilhelm scream to one of the jet troopers or something (this one is kind of a joke… unless…)

  • And, finally, when Kylo confronts Rey about being a Palpatine… I found myself still cringing at Kylo saying “You’re his granddaughter”, is there anyway to axe “You’re his granddaughter” and keep “You’re a Palpatine” and then have Kylo continue with “My mother was the daughter of Vader and your father was the son of the Emperor” instead of him blatantly saying “your his granddaughter”… it just sounds weird lol

Of course these were just my thoughts while viewing, I’m onboard with whatever you have planned, Hal.

“You’re a Palpatine” isn’t great either. Maybe cut both? So he says “You have his power,” Rey reacts, and hes goes on with “My mother was…”

Might cut the scene too short though, and it’s supposed to be the huge dramatic reveal.

I would be cool with that too… maybe that’s why I have an aversion to it, like the audience isn’t that dumb as Kylo basically told us three times in a row that she’s Palpatine’s granddaughter… like, we get it lol

There is an added Wilhelm scream somewhere already. It’s the lesser known variant, heard for example at the start of AOTC.

Sup dude. My edit has been let’s say 95% finished for about two months now, so there hasn’t been anything to update. Only minor changes left but have been holding off releasing because I’ve been waiting for stuff like new VFX shots (plus have just happened to be busy for the past few weeks).

That’s really exciting to hear! Any chance you’ll post a preview clip of the hangar scene before the release? I’m really curious about how you chose to handle that.

It is a little cringeworthy much like when he said “grandfather” in TFA.

I’m down for this.

Anyone wanna mock that up? Or I can whenever. But I imagine removing the line “you are a Palpatine” may be what we’re able to get away with. The later line feels like he’s expounding on it, not delivering a big revelation in that moment.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

And with Dom’s TIE clip in my greedy mitts, I should in theory be able to sync-lock the edit anytime. Seems premature to do so now, since I’ll be waiting for a little while for at least stuff from jonh.

And this song keeps playing in my head when I type or see “cracklin’”.

Personally the way the line goes in the current work print is the way to go, just with “you’re his granddaughter” and not “you are a Palpatine” it just sounds like it’s ham fisted and adding too much with the extra line

Author

Could have him say, “You’re his grandfather” and that’s it.

“What Palpatine doesn’t know is… who are you?”

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I’d like to believe Palpatine prefers to be addressed as “Grandpappy Palpy”

Things like that Naboo shot being updated don’t affect A/V sync, that’s what my point was.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
