If you wanna be meta funny

3PO: “excuse me, sir"

Trooper: “hey wait"

3PO: “would you be so kind to…”

Trooper: “you’re that droid!”

Bam ya dead

^LOVE this!

Edit:

Does anyone know of any high quality, movie-realistic images of Vader’s castle that can be added to Mustafar?
Please post any you might find.

Totally agree! It would be nice though to see a de-blued Luke ghost until Jonh finishes giving him his haircut.

Yes, I can’t wait to see a de-blued Luke! A while ago, I had strongly advocated for Bobson Dugnutt to tackle that task, but it seems like the responsibility has fallen onto Jonh quite strangely according to the OP… So I don’t know who’s actually doing it. It seems like Bobson is already pretty busy working on multiple prequel projects at the current time, so he might not finish it.

For reference, here are his early demonstrations:

Welcome to the family, stickydixon!

Magpies suck,

Exactly why I never leave the house during spring.

spiders scare me,

I hate spiders.

90% of the country is too hot 90% of the time.

YES!

I first saw kangaroos at a school camp when I was thirteen. The next time was at a caravan park where one got within five yards of me - a rather scary experience.

Holy shit! Not until you were 13! I had a close call with a bunch of them when I was 5… I got separated from my parents while we were visiting Queensland and I had to hide behind an outdoor vending machine! True story. 😄

I oscillate between thinking that the stereotypes of Australia and the seemingly alien perception of the place by Americans and others is entirely bullshit and thinking that Australia really is an insane place. I suspect neither is really true/

It is an insane place. But regardless, a lot safer than most other places.

The Australian Thread
Time

I’m feeling a little patriotic… So why not? 😄

After a quick search of the site, this thread doesn’t seem to have been created yet, bloody outrageous! I’ve been finding myself desperate for new things to do so I had hoped that in this new thread I could engage with any fellow Aussies or anyone curious to learn about the greatest country in the world as we battle through this virus!

So yes, it’s no secret that I’m Australia, born and raised. On one side of my family, my ancestry dates back to the British convicts of the First Fleet, the first European people to settle in the country. Because of this. I pay may respects to the Indigenous population or rather, first people of this land and their elders, past and present.

Post in this thread if you’re Australian, live in Australia, been there on holiday, know anybody from there, etc… Tell the rest of us about your experiences, thoughts, things you love, things you dislike, funny stories about tasting Vegemite! (I LOVE it!) OR you can also take this opportunity to ask any of us Aussies your burning questions! Post memes, videos, gifs, etc…

Rules!

  1. No politics. Enough said.
  2. Crazy conspiracy theories are OK, just keep it respectful.
  3. Keep it SFW.
  4. Keep banter at an appropriate level, racism will not be tolerated.
  5. No confusing us and New Zealand!

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

Sorry to unnecessarily bump this thread, but is there any chance of a workprint or similar of the “95% complete” version you mentioned recently, Dom?

+1

I hate to further push these repeated requests for a word of progress from Dom, as I’m sure he has a life outside of this site. (unlike me…) But if this were to be released as a final version before Hal’s ascendant, it could mean that his ‘Rey Nobody’ cut may be able to be released simultaneously with his regular cut! 😱

The worst thing about the sequel titles is that they all start with “The.” I don’t know why JJ didn’t just make it “Rise of Skywalker.”

I would be very much in favour of an alternate version of Ascendant that excludes the ‘THE’ part of the title, you know, just to mix it up a little… 😉 That way we have the third of each trilogy starting with ‘Return’ ‘Revenge’ and ‘Rise’

EDIT:

As things are presently, I used a pitched-up Kylo saber effect. Sort of sounds like a car engine with something wrong with it.

Would it be possible to keep the Kylo saber ignition effect at a regular pitch, but have it blended with the regular Anakin saber ignition sound??? 🤔

I saw that snooker had posted recently in the ‘going away’ thread, so it’s possibly she may be gone for some time. This leaves us with a slight problem related to the Naboo shot. I don’t know if anyone else with the skill would want to try to improve upon it. It may be good enough as is, even if able to be picked apart in some ways. If so I can send the raw clip that she sent me.

After checking the OP again it seems like we now only have three tasks that have not been assigned to anyone… Might be a good time to give a quick recap of what still needs to be undertaken… Any takers??? 😃

  • The completion of snooker’s Naboo celebration shot.
  • Coruscant added to the establishing shot of the destroyer during the conference scene.
  • Vader’s castle added to the close-up of Kylo on Mustafar.

The list is short guys, we’re closer than ever!

I would really like it if we could somehow have Palpy yell something like, “Skywalker is dead!” Luke’s death made basically no impact on this film so anything to remind us of him would be very much welcome in my opinion.

Edit:

Just watched the clip, using only a portion of the message works surprisingly well, the only big issue is that it seems like removing “somehow Palpatine returned” makes Poe’s next line “He’s been planning his revenge for years” seem very abrupt, it makes it a little too obvious he’s already in the middle of a speech.

SOLO - A subtler remaster of 'The Bold One' (a work in progress)

Bumping for a pair of questions:

  1. has anything further come of this project

Okay, so progress hasn’t really stopped, just slowed down once I started to dig into the prequels some more. I’ll try to post updates if I find the time but otherwise, I will confirm that this has not been canceled.

It appears to still be live at the original Google Drive link.

Thanks for confirming that, very cool! I’ve wanted to get my hands on that, if I can, it will speed things up SIGNIFICANTLY… Would you mean shooting me a PM with the link? 😃
