I like it, What about an establishing shot for the board scene though?

The Star Destroyer will remain, it will just be hovering over the planet. 😉

Would the First Order allow citizens to go about their daily business?

I was thinking about erasing all those unnecessary ships flying in every direction in the shot just posted above though!

Since the current problem with Mustafar is now looking like “too many” options rather than “not enough,” how far do we want to pursue the other currently unaddressed items on the list?

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you didn’t see my post only a couple hours ago when I sent out the exact same thing.

A couple posts back I put a Coruscant planet shot with Dooku’s ship removed from Attack of the Clones up, but there weren’t any truly good shots of Coruscant that can be used, just brief planetary approaches because the ships usually engulf the entire camera frame.

Should probably show you this:

I’ve been thinking that it might be easier to create a Coruscant shot to replace the Ewok shot in the ending montage by possibly using the removed Star Destroyer matte to add to an already existing Coruscant shot from the prequels.
Here’s a very rough mockup that I did in like two minutes:

StarDestroyer

By doing this, we can avoid having to go to the trouble of rendering new models that might not fit with the original film’s aesthetic.

Now that we have learned that snooker is no longer able to assist with Hal, or anybody else’s edits, I thought it might be a good idea to clarify what exactly it is that Hal still needs doing in terms of VFX and audio. I’ve had trouble figuring out exactly what it is since his checklist doesn’t seem to be caught up on recent updates.

1. Mustafar establishing shot. - Looks like we already have quite a few options.
2. The falcon exiting hyperspace at the giant iceberg. - Done by Poppasketti.
3. Doesn’t look like Naboo is happening in this film so probably wouldn’t look any further into the Gungan statues.
4. Establishing shot of Coruscant from space during the conference room scene.
5. Possibly the squeaky wheel scene.
6. Use Jonh’s VFX to give Luke a haircut.
7. Possibly some line from 3PO when his mind is restored to hint at his prequel memories.
8. Possibly replace Kylo Ren’s TIE. (I really want a TIE Adavanced!)
9. Civilian fleet lines from all of you guys. - KEEP SENDING THEM!
10. Star Destroyer crashing over Coruscant to replace the Ewok shot.
11. Finalised form of the chess scene. - I’ll be sending this soon!
12. Ben Solo’s force ghost. - In progress by Jonh.
13. Falcon leaving Tatooine. - In progress by Poppasketti.

Bonus!

This isn’t on Hal’s list, but I strongly recommend using Bobson Dugnutt’s version of force ghost Luke on Ach’To when it is finished as it drastically reduces the level of blueness and makes it more in line with the OT ghosts.

If you’re wanting to use Battlefront 2 footage, I recommend reaching out to Cinematic Captures. I don’t know how willing he would be to help, but there’s no one better at capturing cinematic footage from that game.

This hasn’t been released yet. And I am far from ‘wanting’ to use it at this point. I’m not that desperate yet! 😉

No one hates the mini Death Star guns mounted on millions of Star Destroyers more than me, so clearly I am in favour of a complete deletion of that sub-plot.

The only issue with removing every mention of them is the fact that you no longer will have the beautiful transition from the line “Leia made you acting general, what now?” to Poe by Leia’s side.

“Sad”

Thoughts anyone?

The Prequel Radical Redux Ideas Thread

So I was revisiting Anakin Starkiller’s EbSynth test of the abominable prequel Yoda significantly improved with puppet Yoda’s face and I came to appreciate even more just how good it was. I really want to collaborate with him and pursue this idea further! 😃

However, the ESB puppet has atticulation in its eyes that allows it to look in different directions and it seems like that would be difficult to recreate in a deepfake.

I had the idea to mask out the puppet eyes and use the CGI eyes, but it doesn’t look like the puppet anymore… 😕

Anakin Starkiller, can you post some more test clips of the puppet deepfake? I would love to see how it looks in other scenes!

I’m curious about upgrading the Hayden ghost to not be a head swap/convey the same warmth and pride as Shaw.

With NFBisms’ Hayden knowledge and Jonh’s VFX editing skills, I think it would be possible. It’d be a nice alternative to just bringing back Shaw.

Don’t forget sade1212’s Hayden ageing to make him in his late 40s instead of early 20s.

Because the people here have knocked my socks off lately (and for a long time now)…

Anyone feel like replacing Alderaan’s explosion with Kijimi’s? No shockwave and looks better all around. Might need some kind of morph or blend to get the explosion started.

I’ll give it a go.

Can you send me the ANH and the TROS clips?

I’ve posted two versions of the Mustafar tie flyover to the Master Clips folder on my drive, one that’s 5 seconds (same timing as original) and one that’s 6 seconds with about 2 seconds before the ties enter the frame. Each has a version with and without color correction so Kewlfish or whoever wants can add their own!

For reference, here they are:
Mustafar - Tie Flyover
Mustafar - Tie Flyover Alt
pw: fanedit

Hate to be a nuisance Poppasketti, but I mentioned this way back so you probably didn’t see it, but I believe that you have mistakenly used Imperial TIE models instead of First Order ones. 😉

That would be amazing! Thank you so much man!!

Can’t promise it will be perfect, but I’ll give it ago. You’ll need to give me some time though since I’ve got a lot on my plate already so I’ll have to get around to it a little later.

First of all, I’ll need you to go through your edit and tell me how many times the planet is shown. I’ll create a few variations from different angles.

StarkillerAG said:

That was debunked long ago. Scenes of people collapsing like that are often filmed backwards to prevent the actor being injured. The whole “Ben lives in an alternate ending” conspiracy theory was just made up by desperate Reylos after the movie’s release.

Yes! Thank you StarkillerAG, I’ve been waiting for someone to address that!

On another note if anyone is particularly good at either extracting music from scenes with dialogue or removing music completely from scenes with dialogue, can you let me know?
