Wow! This opens up a whole new range of possibilities! Also, PM sent!
Has anybody already worked on making Ghost Luke on Ahch-To less blue? Before trying to tackle it myself, I was wondering if it’s been done before.
These are still rough…

I hope the mods see this. Sounds like a good idea.
I’m sure it’s already been mentioned/discussed, but there’s one thing in particular that has bothered me: the “16 hours until the Final Order attack” ticking clock just pulls me out of the movie… is there any way around it? Replace it with “Soon, they will begin an assault on all free worlds” if there’s any way to stitch something like that. I dunno.
+1 For removing the ticking clock element. Star Wars never has that.
Also, Hal, I noticed in the workprint that the scene when Chewie is introduced to Hux and Pryde in the restructured Chewie reveal is now missing. Did I miss something? 🤔
Maybe they just don’t agree with you about how good it looks? Why is that so hard to believe?
Well you didn’t quote the rest of my reply, giving a false impression on what I was actually saying.
I continued by asking if the playback on Google Drive causes any issues with colouring, which would contribute to causing confusion between myself and others about what issues we were actually referring to. That is what I meant was hard to believe.
Very, very cool! I’m super excited to see some of this VFX incorporated into the scenes! I can not even begin to conceive any idea on how you manage to mask and rotoscope every lightsaber in these films!
Nobody really knows what went down on TROS, but if you see a body with dozens of stab wounds and severed limbs, maybe hesitate before calling it self-inflicted.
Beautiful analogy, NeverarGreat. Did you come up with that? It’s so fitting. 😃
Kewlfish, that new clip looks amazing! Can’t wait to see how the rest of the scenes turn out! 😄
Okay, so the workprint seems to be a perfect match with the frames Skenera provided meaning that the intensity or whatever you want to call it, has not been altered either intentionally or mistakingly by Hal like I had wrongly assumed.
Because of this, I have no idea what everyone is complaining about. Does the playback on Google Drive really result in over-saturation of red? That seems a little stupid.
EDIT: The excessive red is far more present in the google drive preview- viewing the fully downloaded video looks much better.
Brewzter seems to believe that’s the explanation.
Downloading the workprint now. I will compare frames of it with the example frames provided by Skenera to see if the LUT has been applied as they intended and as they appear on my computer.
This should hopefully resolve any debate about excessive red colouring.
Any ‘over abundance’ of red must imply that the LUT applied to the workprint Hal released has not been set to the specifications I believe were intended when it was created by Skenera.
Bottom line is: the LUT is fine, so long as it has been set correctly. Still unhappy? Make your own edit.
For Exagol they look great, everywhere else they are almost too much. It’s like we swung the pendulum from being too blue to being too red. You can see this especially in Kylo’s face, it almost looks like he’s sunburnt. I wonder what it would look like if the intensity was just brought down slightly. Another issue with the LUTs is that the movie becomes incredibly bright, almost too much.
Hold up, what?!
The way you described it is NOT how it looks when I imported the LUT.
Hal, I can’t view your workprint at the current time, but is this how you’ve set yours:
(This is in FCPX)
Only issue I noticed is that the rest of the LUT makes the picture a LOT warmer and more red.
You have an issue with Skenera’s work, you have an issue with me! 😠
Only joking, but I don’t understand how removing the hideous aqua blanket over the film is an issue.
Haven’t seen the workprint yet, but it SHOULD look like this:
The crawl is good, I’d say maybe capitalize stuff like “First Order” and “Resistance.”
The sequels have a nasty habit of capitalising too much. The original trilogy had little to no capital words. This is a crawl, not a Trump tweet. Captilising doesn’t make words “more importanter”
But some of the other shots, particularly the rebel base, are very red.
Better than having all whites be green.
Does it include Kewlfish’s cracklin’ saber?
Obviously just the scenes he’s done, that is.
Honestly what were they thinking when they made TROS and The Mandalorian BOTH feature a new desert planet. At least making it Tatooine eliminates one of them.
But that was the best line in the film! 😄
One urge I Keep having is to turn Arvala into Tattooine. It can be done really easily, but I guess Arvala is just a little too muddy!
I was gonna suggest this!
I have serious respect for you being so passionate about this film. Pretty impressive that over the course of this year you’ve already completed an extended cut AND a behind the scenes documentary.
I like the idea of having the blade “heal” when it’s passed to Ben
The message might not come across clearly to new viewers. You need the extra context.

Also, +9000 to me for wanting all the scenes of Anakin’s lightsaber to have the crackling blade.
I’m surprised to learn that this was actually achieved. I’d be very much interested in some screenshot comparisons.
I know at some point C-3PO dialogue was being searched for and realised theres a bunch of Anthony Daniels dialogue in Lego: Star Wars Droid Tales including a memory restoration scene.
A little late to the party…
But anyway… yes, that scene was discussed and the Droid Tales scene was harvested for potential lines. I proposed the idea of using a certain line to have 3PO ask R2 to retsore his memory for him instead of the silly smash cut, but nobody liked it. “Sad”
Alright all, here is Rey’s training scene. The Pasana clip was low quality footage, but I used the actual movie footage for this one. Let me know the issues that y’all see with it and I will continue to refine it.
Yes… Oh hell yes!!! 😍
This was one of the first things I commented on to my brother after seeing the first teaser. I told him that Anakin’s lightsaber should have been like this.
Can I make a suggestion,
When you do the Ben Solo scenes, can you make sure you use Skenera’s purple lightsaber scenes as base footage?
These are the clips I am referring to:
OK, this should be closer: Part 1 and Part 2
