Strong is looking good to me!
Can anyone PM me a link (preferably not usenet)? I searched usenet to no avail. Parts of the rar files are down even with a high retention service. 😦. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Edit: Got it thanks. Great Job Adywan. We just need an HD version now and maybe better placement of hardcoded subtitles! There are maybe one or two more things that still need to fixed with this version but its a good start (Naboo Bridge / Subtitles). 😄
Can I please get a PM as well? Thanks!
Might not be possible, but would there be a way to make force ghost Yoda actually look like a force ghost?
Why not even use existing dialogue from the IX trailer? “my boy, find me”
I can actually do a somewhat good Palpatine impression. Would it be worth it for me to try a recording of “(Kylo Ren), find me” for the radio scene? Especially since we have the radio sound effect it might help mask that it is not actually Ian McDiarmid.
Maybe even this:
“Kylo Ren, find me. I will give you Snoke could not”
@poppasketti, have you thought about removing the Matrix-style shot of Luke during the dual like Hal does in his V3? Definitely an improvement.
I like Han tossing the guy. Kinda has an Indiana Jones vibe
Yeah, upon a few more watches. V2 is less distracting without the repeated shot.
4D V3 for the win!
4D is perfect!
Have you given any thought to ending the movie on the Falcon group shot? I think that would be awesome as it could help alleviate all the ST films ending with the same theme and have a more upbeat and quick ending. Maybe broom boi could be recycled as an ending for IX.
I have been trying to find a way to make an Android app for Original Trilogy. Basically it would just be a glorified shortcut that would open the website in full screen on my phone, instead of opening my browser and going to my bookmark, or having a crappy page shortcut on my home screen.
Any help on how to do this would be greatly appreciated!
Look closely for Chopper in Echo Base 😉
Ending on the Millennium Falcon in hyperspace searching for a new home is a perfect way to end the movie.
I’ve always hated broom boi so I would be down for this. And I think the Canto Bight scene can stay as it helps build the world or revert to the V1 version. Swap the shots of the Falcon in hyperspace and group shot and circle out with the group shot in the Falcon. I did a sample of this before. If I find the link I will attach below.
One more nitpick on the radio scene. Are you able to extend the last shot of the radio slightly longer to finish out the music? It gives the audience a little longer to figure out what is going on and the music helps to play into the mystery. By the time we hear the Falcon it will be quiet and a little more somber.
Another Palpatine hint could be adding one in towards the beginning of the movie when Rey is training with Luke, the “you went straight to the dark scene” a subtle quiet laugh could be added before Luke screams “Rey!”
Where is this dialog from? If it’s from the previous films I would recommend using the dialog from FortNit by the Emperor. It’s spoken by Ian McDermit and it’s referring to the message of Revenge sent out to the whole Galaxy before TROS.
The problem with using that is it hurts the timeline of the films and will hurt the opening of ROS. A year is supposed to pass between films. The Emperor’s goal at this point of the story would be for Kylo to seek him out. Only Kylo is only supposed to get a hint of what is out there.
The Fortnite message would play a lot better in ROS. The common idea around here seems to be the removal of Palpatine from the crawl of IX and have his return happen in movie. We would actualy hear the broadcast at the beginning of the movie when the Star Destroyers raise up from the ice.
Also, even ROS copies direct Palpatine dialog from the prequels so reusing lines is something even the original filmmakers are doing. 😃
Also, DZ-330, I made another try at swapping the shots, same link as above. I cut to the closeup of his eyes on the word “Destiny” which feels better and more purposeful than what I did before. Also, the same link as above (so two options currently; with and without swapped shots).
I like this version a lot more. Don’t know why but it just feels more natural. The eyes at the end just make the last shot of Kylo in the movie too rushed the more I think if it.
Here’s another update, same link:
This version, I adjusted timing slightly (hopefully an improvement), tweaked the effects on the voice, and added in just a little bit of the Emperor’s theme.
Gave it a second watch and the audio sounds great. I would suggest flipping the 2nd and 3rd reactions shots from Kylo.
That ways it goes as follows:
Radio static starts
Kylo looks up
Radio plays message
Zoom on Kylo’s eyes as message plays
Radio static shot
Building off DZ-330’s edit and Ash’s note on balance, here’s a next pass.
(Sirnoob1126, PM sent!)
I would make Palpatine’s laugh a little quieter, I also added a radio effect over his voice just to blend it better. Otherwise 👍👍👍
Also, from what we know from IX, as soon as Palps realizes Luke is gone, he jumps at Kylo.
I don’t know, it’s impressive work, but I just don’t feel it belongs in this movie. It feels too much like a teaser or in-film marketing for the next movie, which is something I associate with Marvel and not Star Wars.
I agree with your point, but I think one of TLJ’s main issues is that the ending doesn’t really build up to anything in IX in a satisfying way. Hopefully by adding some hint of what is to come it will help make the trilogy feel more well-thought-out
Unfortunately my video editor that I use is trash, and anything I make won’t be nearly as good of quality and there are framerate issues and audio problems. I had a hard enough time getting that video out.
I am thinking cropped 4K shots to hide the repeats and I think we might have something good. I can help with the structuring of the scenes and possibly an audio track, but as far as messing with the video, I think I already hit the max my PC will let me!
Full Palpatine Scene
My garage video editor messed up the frames when exporting but the idea is still the same haha
JEDIT: Updated link with corrected video
