Well I would not just cut Kamino, but change and reorder most of the first half of the movie.

Indeed, the movie has very little decent action on the first part (the city chase is poor).
So the fight on Kamino needs to stay. Perhaps move it to the beginning so that you have:
» Open with Obi-wan at Kamino
» Fight with Jango
» Coruscant with the usual Padme stuff
» Bar sequence, Obi-wan sees Jango again
» Obi-wan goes to Geonosis chasing Jango

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>

I’d use the metal thing on the cap as grey/white reference, not the uniform.
The revisited version seems OK to me.

The link posted by Adiwan ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feldgrau ) also shows a range of colors corresponding to Feldgrau. Modern variants and photos point towards a slight green tint, but it can also look grey, olive, brown, etc.
Depends on illumination and actual tissue I guess, but I agree that a very slight green hue would be OK.

My ROTJ fixes &amp; changes
Time

There are some extra sequences of the crew running and doing repairs, but it’s mostly unconnected to the rest of the action. So I don’t think there’s much more to add…

Here are the next sequences. Used some Rogue One and Battlefront II footage.

This one is a mix of “4: Change of Strategy” + “5: Taking out the jamming Star Destroyer”.
Here they take out a normal star destroyer. I’m aware of the B-Wing cockpit mismatch of course.

“6 - Attack on the Super Star Destroyer”
This is where the B-wings would come in, but there’s no footage available for it.

As always a rough cut just to see if it works. On my opinion it does 😃

It’s all looking quite good. Return of the Jedi, while they upped the technicality of some of the effects work, it just hasn’t aged very nicely.

Yes the effects are problematic. You can see that they blue screened stuff on layers, with each layer having a different color shift. And there are some continuity problems on some sequences, fixable if you reedit according to the original intended scene sequences. This is specially noticeable on the space battle.

Star Wars: Remastered - A New Special Edition

Very impressed with those 3D models.
Once I tried to render the Enterprise-A using a very good model, matching the original lightning and materials. I was able to do it, but only after adding dozens of lights and the render times were insane for animation:
It looked better than the original movie models ( Star Trek V 😉 ) though.

So I guess here it will be the same. If you need some help with rendering or Blender latter on, PM 😉
It’s your show, but rendering the entire movie (with better quality than the original) will be too much for a single person.

THE LAST JEDI (REMANIED) - « NEVER SEEN BEFORE » CUT with NEW VFX
Time

I like that you cut the sword and went with Luke hiding 😃
That’s my favorite solution for this sequence!
May I suggest that you end it on Rey seeing the X-Wing under water ? That way we get from the start that Luke has changed.

You can cut Poe’s joke and go with the original Fin intro scene. Works much better as a reintroduction to the character.

What was said above. The updated version doesn’t work, I felt lost almost immediately.
You should respect the original timing and reveals.

You do have some freedom regarding composition and speed I think.

It could work with the Tantive coming from below the camera perhaps a little slower, and then have the camera move down to reveal the Star Destroyer passing above. Make both ships closer and add more damage effects and more firing.

As always, just an opinion, it’s your show 😃

It’s not a still shot, since the camera tilts down to frame the scene…
And the original framing is perfect 😃

Anyway… perhaps you can give the camera some forward motion, so that we stay closer to the Tantive at the start and then we slow down to reveal the Star Destroyer ?
Seems to be enough time for a slow camera movement there.

I’m not a blender expert bit if you need something, just PM.
Have you thought about the amount of effect shots you need for the entire movie 😉 ?
