I figure that can be done at the end, but I’d welcome a set of LUTs if any are made.

These are the ones I’ve been using, they’re perfect!

For all you fans of a non-blueish tinted Exegol, this is the one for you:

Here is my attempt at reducing the green tint.

Here is an alternative LUT that preserves lightness

Poor skenera doesn’t get enough love around here! 😕

It’s all coming together Hal… 😉

As for the list, I would say the one that requires the most attention is the Endor into Coruscant shot. 😬 After the loss of Snooker’s computer, we need you talented people to pick up the torch! If we can have several takers of that shot, we might be able to pick and choose what works best, and combine people’s edits… I would say it is the most urgent shot as well since we have literally already reused the Endor shot earlier in the film, so it actually NEEDS to be replaced.

Let the games begin! Which of you are brave enough to undertake such a task?

I think you should. This may be the unpopular opinion thread, but that’s like, sacrilege.

I don’t need to. This is an unpopular opinion thread. If you can’t accept it, this isn’t the place for you.

People should be able to use this thread without having to hear complaining about the things they say, so long as everybody follows the rules, you can say whatever you want.

A TLJ Edit to please everybody?
Time

😄
Hate to derail the topic further, but we really need a thread of ‘Best Moderator One-Liners before giving a Ban’

As for what I think would make a TLJ edit to please everybody, I would say that whilst it may be difficult, the simplest approach would probably be to trim away the ‘retcon-y’ nature of it and have it move efficiently forward in the way TFA set it up to, no more of this ‘subversion of expectations’

(It’s worth noting that I already somewhat like TLJ and consider Rekindled to be the perfect cut of it, so I don’t really have much to say when it comes to ‘fixing’ it…)

I could, since I edited it together that way already. I haven’t watched that chunk of the movie overall, but I imagine it working well.

Yeah I imagined it would work fine, in theory… I just really liked the way Rose’s line to Poe transitioned to him talking to Leia. Since that scene is gone, I was just concerned it wouldn’t flow as nicely.

My only other concern is that I have yet to see proof that the reveal of Chewie being alive can be delayed with only rearrangement, no deletion.

Edit:

Also, with the aftermath of Kijimi’s destruction being deleted, we have no scene of Poe being thrown into the deep end and setting up his new responsibilities and thus, giving the Leia scene context.

I don’t think it’s necessary to remove Hux sardonically asking if he should destroy the city. A Star Destroyer is a powerful vessel, and it’s not like they were in a Final Order Destroyer at that point anyway.

And about the line “every one we knock out is a world saved.” First, it’d be very awkward to try to remove since the main SW theme is blaring. But I think it still makes sense, not as a numerical ratio. Those Destroyers with their big guns are gonna go fuck up “all free worlds.” Taking them down in total saves the totality of all worlds. So, to put it poetically, each one destroyed could be said to save a world.

“I see your point, sir”

Either way, this thread is hardly the place for the discussion, so please find another thread for it.

Secondly, I just thought I should clarify some things I said about removing the Death Star cannons on the Star Destroyers. Upon rewatching some scenes, I picked up on a couple things that are important to note when discussing this.

In the briefing scene on the Resistance base, Rose says something like, “We think hitting the cannons will ignite the main reactors of the ships” or whatever.

This means that the lines, “Hit those underbelly cannons!” and “We gotta hit those cannons now!” CAN STAY. It just implies that the best way to destroy those ships is hitting the big guns.

This means that we still only have the following moments to remove:

  1. Hux saying, “Shall we destroy the city?”

  2. Palpatine telling Pryde to destroy a world they know. (So dumb!)

  3. Scene of Kijimi’s destruction.

  4. The aftermath scene with Poe, Rose and Merry.

  5. Poe saying, “Every one we knock out is a world saved!”

I also love the suggestions Hal makes here, so we should brainstorm more ways to give the impression of an Imperial remnant:
(RIP to the “relics of a bygone era” line!) 😦

  • Possibly use Dominic’s rescore of the reveal of the Final Order (although the use of the Imperial March could help sell it as an Imperial remnant stashed away)

  • Id like to imply that the Final Order fleet is a backup fleet stashed during the days of the Empire and modified to have the big guns. (Removing Kijimi’s destruction can help this be inferred.)
