Lol, sounds like we need to convince Jonh to forget work for this since it’s obviously more important. 😉

^ and after the haircut is done, jonh plans on adding Anakin into the final shot with the Force ghosts on Tatooine 😄 the whole Skywalker Force ghost family will be together

My only problem with this is that Rey doesn’t know Anakin at all. Idk. Hal has the final word.

She knows of Vader and trained with his daughter for a year… ostensibly she is aware.

As cool as it’d be to see, I won’t include Anakin in that final scene for this particular project. It doesn’t feel right for the end to this trilogy’s story or to Rey. Plus, it’s a pretty short shot and even having three figures present feels too short. I’m sure it could be extended well enough since the audio is all new anyway, but I don’t think Anakin really belongs there.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Ben is the one I felt needed to be there, Anakin had his moment as a ghost approving the next generation already anyway.

Ok guys, here’s the final part of the DS fight : https://vimeo.com/492230855

pw : fanedit

I’ll try to improve the close-up shots of the saber in part 2 tomorrow.

And unfortunately, I don’t have the original material of the movie on my computer, that’s why I’m working with Hal’s version. But that shouldn’t be a problem, I can provide the After Effect files of each shot, then replacing the video with the original shot of the movie would be the only work needed.

This is looking great, Luka! Well done!

Does anyone know if jonh is still doing the “Sebastian Shaw version” of the force ghosts scene?

Great work, Luka! That looks incredible.

Wow, this really seems to be going somewhere!
By the bye, what’s the state of the Rey-Nobody-cut? (Sorry for asking, I missed the last couple-of-hundred posts or so…)

Hey Guys! Just checking in, love the edit and I look forward to an updated version someday on the horizon. I know introducing the crackle saber and fixing Luke’s hair seem to be the prevailing topics at the moment. I also think the Kylo/ Palpatine clone exchange has some potential. However, two early ideas that seem to have been dropped by the wayside as the editing process went on is the insertion of Vader’s castle on Mustafar and the insertion of Coruscant in the background of the boardroom meeting with the FO officers. Is there any chance this could still end up in V2? I know they aren’t monumentally important additions in the grand scheme of things, but they were on my wish list and I think it would help connect all the films in the saga and be nice for world building. What is everyone’s thought?

^ I’m interested in both of those as well! Especially Coruscant

I’m inclined to agree nice idea but when having to choose which of the two Anakin ghosts, neither is best.

We definitely still need to add in as Darth Sadifous reminded the Vader’s castle on Mustafar and the insertion of Coruscant in the background of the boardroom meeting, those are needed 😎👍

Yep, I would welcome any of those, for sure!

And, Luka, that looks fantastic!!

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Coruscant Planetary / Vader’s Castle is something I really wanna see.

Hopefully theres a way to get “More than a clone, less than a man” in without it seeming rough / weird.

Great Job, Luka. I don’t know why LucasFilm didn’t add this detail on Luke/Anakin’s lightsaber. And how Rey repaired the lightsaber. Anyway I ask to all community: in others media like comics or novel, they explain this things? I mean why the lightsaber is destroied at the end of TLJ and then in TROS is completely fixed?

This is fantastic, keep up the good work.

Because I might as well keep being the bearer of constructive notes, one thing I noticed in this clip is you often see sparks floating away from Kylo Ren’s saber. I wouldn’t say it’s crucial, but one thing that would sell the effect would be some similar, well placed sparks shots for Rey’s saber (certainly doesn’t need to be every shot). You’ll notice shots like the one at :21 here and the one after, there’s some sparks just while he’s walking and while the saber is being held by the force.

It’s a different effect than what you’re doing, so I don’t know if it’s in your wheelhouse, or something someone else could pick up, but it’s worth making note of and considering.

Luka, looking good. It’s great you are taking up the mantel on this. I think you’ve nailed the base of the effect. As DominicCobb mentioned, I think the final polish would be adding some small sparks. Although, at the same time, I wouldn’t want the saber to be “kylo saber - Light side edition” in which it is more subtle and not trying to carbon copy it.

Also Rik, I don’t know what the “Official” answer is via comics, books, etc … but I am sure Kennedy’s response of “The Force is Female” is probably the answer. ;P

I haven’t been able to download this, it keeps saying the download quota is exceeded. I looked at the faq and tried downloading the folder to my google drive as a workaround, but the download always fails. Is there something wrong on my end?

Lol, I’m making fun of the whole “force is female” push some years back. Coming up with an explanation of something that doesn’t make sense. That’s all.

Log into your Google Drive account

Right click the FOLDER in which your preferred movie file resides within Google Drive:
e.g. The Rise Of Skywalker - Ascendant 1080p (FOLDER not file)

Choose download from the drop down menu which starts the zip process that should take around a few hours to complete by which point you’ll be asked to save the file to your desired location.

Just checked the above method still works my end, you did right click folder then download and not the file right?

Can we not start with stupid shit like this? There’s a reason I only read the fan edit forums these days.

Hello!!! Happy Christmas everyone!
sorry i couldn’t fix luke’s hair i’m too busy with work i just don’t have time. I hope in two months to have some time to do it.

Regarding adding anakin in the last scene, I don’t like it, Rey doesn’t know Anakin, it would be strange to see him in the end.

And the sebastian Shaw thing in the fight, I tried but it didn’t look good. there is simply no good material to work with.

I hope everybody is fine! I wish you a happy Christmas friends!
