Jonh and MR, both of those new clips are absolutely incredible! 😃

For the castle clip- You don’t need to worry about the smoke and contrast anymore MR, I would say you’ve nailed that already. Same goes with the tracking, those pesky last few frames have been dealt with! Smoothing it out manually seems to have done the trick! I would say the clip is finished and good to go! (Unless anyone else picks up on anything) Nice work. 👍

Jonh, where do I even begin?! 😄 I compared each of those modified shots to the original to get a sense of how much had been changed, and I was totally blown away! Your work is nothing short of amazing. Not only have you completely hidden any evidence of Luke’s wig, but miraculously, you managed to remove the extra weight and age to his face gained between films and reshoots! This is Hollywood level expertise. 😉 👍

All that I would say is left to do now with Jonh’s footage is to merge it with Skenera’s de-blued footage he provided a while ago. Whether this means sending Jonh the footage to re-apply the effects over or perhaps, the other way around, I don’t know. Aside from that, does anything else remain in the ‘Rey Palpatine’ cut?

Edit:

Forgot about the potential of including a modified Vader’s castle shot from Rogue One. We’ll see how that plays out.

Dom's (Possibly) Useful TROS Edit (WIP)

Just wanted to let you know Dom that I haven’t forgotten about this work-print and I really appreciate you taking the time to provide the link.

I haven’t yet gotten around to giving it a watch, but I will certainly try to sometime this week, so expect a thorough post of jottings and notes I’ll take while I watch! 😃

Can’t wait to see how the Rey Nobody scenes play out!

I’ve given this one more try with the image we have. I trimmed the mask back as hard as I could, retracked the movement, and added a smoke effect to match what’s there.

Let me know if the contrast is better?

Nice job MR!

In terms of blending the castle with the rest of the environment, this is the best pass yet! 👍

However, I’m not sure if this is just me, but it seems like the tracking on your second pass was a bit more precise, since closer to the end of this shot the castle seems to become a little floaty. Should be an easy fix though!

Keep up the good work!

Did you do this? If you lay up the colour, I’ll give the tracking a go if you’d like.

I’m sure I speak for all of us when I say we’d love to see you give it a go, Movies Remastered!
Poppasketti had offered, but he’s a busy man so we’ll have to see!

As for the Vader castle shot, Hal, if you send me the shot and the castle still image (if you have it!) I can put it in my queue, but again, this may be a case of me kind of disappearing for another couple of months! So if anyone else gets to it first, by all means!

He’ll probably appreciate the burden being passed onto someone else. 😉

Probably a little too late now that V7 has been released, but I just remembered it so what the hell…

In the previous version of LOE (not sure if it’s been fixed yet though) right after Palpy says the line “one far younger and more powerful” and it fades to Anakin’s nightmare, for about 1 frame you can see a Coruscant building as a remnant of the theatrical transition.

That’s an impressive colour change, but they still don’t look like stun settings. Stunners are either blue circles (like storm troopers in A New Hope, et al.) or what looks like a ball of electricity or lightning (such as Ezra’s stunner built into his first lightsaber).

It might be easier to replicate Exra’s stunner, rather than cutting the laser bolts completely and building the circles from scratch. If you can do the visuals though, I can help you get the corresponding audio in those scenes.

I’m tempted to experiment with using the classic ‘blue circle’ stun effect on the troopers in TROS now…
Wish me luck!

Fennec Shand is a non-character. Remove her and her introductory episode (one of the worst episodes) and nothing changes. She’s so forgettable when she’s reintroduced in S2 and Din recognizes her I had to take a moment to figure out who she was.

Still more characterisation in that brief conversation she has in Chapter 5 than anyone across all three prequels.

They could’ve at least given her a unique design or something.

It’s all about the flashy looks, isn’t it? Obviously the quality of a character is assessed by their costume.

Hey Chase the video link is broken, I’m curious what your fix was since that spot needed some cleaning due to the Chewy removal but yet we hear him! haha!

I took down the video since I’ve drastically improved the mix since I posted it. Essentially I completely scrubbed out the Wookiee noises from the scene.
I’m still waiting on Hal to find out if this mix is worthy of the final edit. I’m happy to post the new version if people really want to hear it though.

Hey Hal, hope you’re doing well.

I decided to give removing the Wookiee noises from that problematic scene a go:

https://streamable.com/idzkg

As you can see, I had an issue with when the clone spoke, since Chewie was groaning over his entire line. I solved this by giving him a new line from the 2004 Battlefront. (Voiced by Temuera Morrison of course!)

PM me if you would like the audio file.

Edit:

Still not 100% happy with it, will tweak further! 😉
