Unstable would be fitting for Rey since the story deals with her being Palpatine’s granddaughter and her fall to the Dark Side, even if she isn’t anywhere near as conflicted as Ben is.

Playing with some random Saber settings. Ignore the tracking and speed, It’s 3am!

I think the main issue is that all of them except Fluid are just shapes scrolling up rather than random movement. Since Fluid doesn’t do that, is it possible to stack Fluid on top of the other three effects to see if it becomes more randomized?

@Movies Remastered I don’t see anything wrong with the tracking and speed for your lightsaber effects.

I don’t get it, though. What’s the upside compared to what kewlfish and Luka Frik have been working on?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Oh, gotcha. Well, I do think the effect we’ve gotten used to is the best of those options. May be just that I’d gotten used to it.

That’s the problem. The effect that I’ve seen other do so far slightly change in most scenes. Some are wavy, some are fluid, some have the effect in the glow, while others in the core.

There’s a 100 settings that all interchange. So, I’m experimenting with flow before I do a bunch of scenes and have to do them again if people don’t agree on the crackle.

I’m just showing examples of what people have suggested to me. If these scenes are already finished by others just let me know? I’m just helping out as we’re in full national lockdown here and all I can do is edit and try to keep busy.

This is kind of a lame reasoning, but I think it makes sense:

I would argue against anything that tries to vary Rey’s lightsaber from Kylo’s, because if it looks somewhat similar but ultimately different, it’ll feel like a fan edit trying to replicate Kylo’s effect, but not being able to make it look right. Personally it feels cleaner to go the kewlfish/Luka Frik route, which seems legit to my eyes, rather than something that falls into sort of an uncanny valley territory.

This sounds a very very awesome edit to me. I would love to watch it! If you could please PM me a link I would really appreciate it. Thank you very much!

Have Ben live, but slip away into exile to go be a wandering Robin Hood-type who tries to redeem himself by helping the downtrodden across the galaxy because there’s no way he would be accepted with Rey’s Resistance buddies after what he’s done

YES! Honestly i think unless we get a massive surprise and the deleted material from the J.J. cut of TROS surfaces somewhere that ending is going to be really difficult at best.

I’ve seen versions where it cuts straight after Ben revives Rey and transitions to the falling debris of the Star Destroyers which works great but yeah…I’m trying to think if it would be possible to take a shot from Rogue One or Solo and integrate a hooded figure with Adam Drivers face…it’s something I may try when time allows and see how it looks.

I offered to help Luka with scenes and wasn’t aware Kewlfish completed any scenes?

I’ve almost finished working on the Exegol sequence and the DS fight between Kylo and Rey but indeed, there are some scenes left to do : the end of the sequence on Kijimi and the small fight between Rey and “Darth Rey”. So if you want to take care of that, it would be great.

Btw, did Kewlfish make the scenes he worked on available before he left ?

I don’t believe so, but I’d hope he’d still be able to and save you at least a little work.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Have Ben live, Leia’s vision of his death changes, they get married, Reylos unite! Everyone wins.

I believe that the only way to pull it would be to cut him completely from thr Exegol 3rd act, and restructure the scenes order, so the scene of him and Han Solo wpuld appear just before the final Tatooine scene. He just throws the lightsaber and stands there. It d be a nice ending for him, like, bitter sweet. He s brought back to the light, but what next? What can he do now? It would be a nice end for thos character.

Yeah, it’s definitely not a feasible edit, just wishful thinking on my part.

Hey Hal, not sure if you saw JakeRyan’s trimming of the “All Sith/The Jedi” line, but any thoughts on using that idea? The line is still godawful, but somehow cutting out that one word makes it a lot less cringey (to me, at least).

I’m happy with the current Hal9000 cut of the movie, but just seeing Vader’s castle being added a few pages back has made me really want to see it. Cut the stormtroopers etc & cut to the tie’s flying over the trees as they do in the current Hal cut, but it is really cool to see.

I’m sad i wasn’t here when the first edit was being made, would totally love to be added to the rebel calls lol

I did see it and while it’s truly not bad, i don’t plan to use it for this.

Not too late. Send me something and I can tuck it in there.

Me too. Good to explore options, but I like what’s already in the queue best.

OMG this is my first time seeing that change and it is SO much better than the original line. It also echo’s Luke’s line to Palpatine in ROTJ: “I am a Jedi, like my father before me.”

Amazing how much more effective that scene is with that little change. I got chills.

Sounds like Hal doesn’t like it though. However, I would absolutely be willing to release my own fanedit—built upon Hal’s final release—entirely for that change alone.
