Unique ways of watching/displaying the Star Wars movies
Time

On my next watch-through of the OT I plan on watching them horizontally mirrored (so left becomes right and right becomes left). I tested it out before on a couple scenes, and I was pretty amazed how fresh and new it made these shots look that I’ve seen a million times before. Maybe the closest you can get to “see[ing] it again for the first time”

The Force Awakens - Ridley's Edit (WIP)
Time

Does Ridley or anyone else have the “[Rey,] these are your first steps” Alec Guinness voiceover by DJ Mitz? I don’t recall if it was edited using Guinness’ voice, or an impersonation, but I remember it being quite good. Haven’t been able to find it since it was removed from YouTube a while back.
Sorry to bump the thread with an odd question, this is the only thread that mentions it.

I can’t get render to work, it just makes black screenshots. I’ve been trying to figure this out for a while. I’m using version 2.8 of Blender. Can Jackpumpkinhead or someone else let me know what version of the program is used in the tutorial video? I could try with that older version.

You need to change the output settings so that it renders a video file instead of a single PNG. Or if you want a PNG sequence, hitting the Animation button should render that. Might be wrong, just going off memory here. Or maybe your frame range isn’t set right?

The cyan tint of the original is pretty bad, but monochrome and uninteresting is worse. Something in the middle would be my cup of tea.

Sounds like you would like the LUT used in Hal’s TROS edit 😃

Yup, that looks pretty fantastic! Excited to check out Ascendant when it’s completed.

Not to change the subject too rapidly, but has anyone ever worked in the deleted clip of Yoda saying “Obi Wan would’ve told you, had I let him” to Luke? I vaguely remember someone making a rough edit of the hut scene with that clip added in awhile back, but has it been added to any edits?

I know Ziggy added the line to his edit.

That headless guy in the middle is really freaking me out.

I’m guessing he moved his head while the camera was set to a slow shutter speed? Either that, or someone did a really lousy Photoshop job removing his face for whatever reason.

His head was shopped off I guess. I wonder why?

I might be mistaken, but it seems in this new YouTube video he contradicted himself on a couple of things. Before he said the alignment of sources were performed with a semi-automatic software using the method of image registration - there even was a video demonstrating it on the SW logo.

iirc Mike’s always said that the stabilization had to be done by hand. I think he used the image registration software to fix warping.

It’s a bit dark, but if Chewie stayed dead and Rey actually spent time dealing with the demons…that would’ve made for a better movie overall. In fact I’m sure that was intended at some point but the executive hands rewrote it. Same with 3po…

I agree. I thought that was what was going to happen after Chewie’s “death scene” and I was excited for it. I remember thinking “holy shit, Rey kills Chewbacca, this is going to be good,” but then we learn he’s still alive a minute later and Rey doesn’t really have to deal with it. Would’ve loved to see more of her struggling with the darkness within her, and afraid to continue on, fearing that she’ll destroy the rest of her friends.

Maybe someone could isolate the Nightsister magic sound effects from The Clone Wars and add it to some Exegol moments to convey the feeling that a mysterious power is at work.

Dang it, I wish the Star Wars Soundboard flash game were still up, I’m pretty sure they had some of those sounds.

I archived all of the sounds a while back, it’s available here:

4K83 reel by reel color grading (a WIP)
Time

Did you flip that shot of Boba in Jabba’s palace or was that done on the initial release of 4K83?

Either way, I’m glad to see it corrected. That shot always bothered me.

That shot is from the Lapti Nek scene, which has always been like that (not mirrored). The mirrored shots of Boba Fett you’re thinking of are from the Boushh/Chewie scene. Presumably they stay mirrored in this version.
