Yes, that would absolutely have been plan A for me if it were really possible. The TIEs just veer off course because the chase is over.
I can certainly play with it, but the color correction will be the last part of the pipeline, once the edit is ‘locked.’ I could imagine maybe using this as well as the regular LUT, meeting someplace between.
Well put, and that’s basically my take on it. I like the TIEs NOT following them into hyperspace, making a clean getaway. But I’m okay with it if it helps make for a more clean and effective removal of the skipping sequence itself.
It treated hyperspace as straight-up teleportation. Felt like HGTTG.
Yeah I would have thought it was just something he had to do to resolve the previous scene’s cliffhanger of being followed into hyperspace by TIEs.
That looks wonderful!
There are already a few edits that ditched “ghouls” successfully and it really improves the scene IMO.
How about we replace it with “Cool!” lol
And I can try a wipe, yeah!
I further finessed the audio since posting the clip. The music now feels like it picks up a but more of the slack. Each channel of the first clip before the transition fades out as gracefully as it can, after the last TIE sound and before the next sounds of the omitted sequence. The soundtrack piece comes in at the right time and volume level for each track.
If poppasketti prefers option B, then that’s good enough for me! lol
Okay, well here’s a good presentation of Option B, for all to consider. I can see the merit of both, but the lightspeed skipping sequence itself will remain out! Let me know what you think.
To go back, the lines “Knights of Ren” and “Ghouls” aren’t in the center channel neatly. Given this why don’t we just leave it alone?
I have two options:
- Falcon escapes the TIEs and no reference is made to lightspeed skipping (current workprint)
- Falcon jumps to lightspeed, and the TIEs follow before the scene ends on a sort of cliffhanger. Falcon arrives safe and they reference “lightspeed skipping” that apparently let them escape.
But I won’t be using the actual lightspeed skipping scene itself, as it makes zero goddamn sense and is way worse than the starlight problem in TFA. It’s not a matter of fuzzy logic, it totally undermines an important mechanic of Star Wars for no real reason.
Well I’m not a fan of the shockwaves anyway, and I didn’t really have great ways to remove the other two. I didn’t want the battle of Yavin to only have one OOT shot at the most critical moment. So I removed the DSII shockwave so it’s not like all OT and only OT explosions have them.
I tried to list ROTJ on the site but there was a cryptic error that I couldn’t figure out and I haven’t gone back yet to try again.
Come to think of it, in my Ep2 edit, it follows ESB somewhat:
Establish romantic tension and frustration at the start, they go off together, make out, maybe do more, and then the big deal part at the end is a declaration of love.
The line never bothered me, but it could be muted without issue.
Every planet has a destroyer. It’s simple calculus.
lol, yeah. What nonsense. Makes me embarrassed for any SW stuff I see on YouTube or anything like that.
If they do, great. But at this point there’s not much to do. And even if they did, it wouldn’t obviously change anything we’d do beforehand.
Ooooh, that looks great!
Spanish subtitles are now included on the Google Drive.
This isn’t what I had in mind for the thread but I like it.
What would you actually want to serve or eat during each movie, to say nothing of how you actually feel about the movies themselves? Duck or seafood during TPM, chicken during TLJ?
Ooo, cool idea.
Yeah, it’s a fun idea but ultimately doesn’t make a lot of sense.
I think I prefer Jakku at the end. It’s more immediately relevant to this trilogy, and the music seems to acknowledge the playful commentary of that moment.
Both planets would be cool, but Naboo makes more sense for the end of the saga. Thanks, snooker! I think at this point it’d be better to include Naboo there than at the beginning of the movie. Just be sure to have a gungan jumping and yelling in the foreground. (Interesting that the shot is literally concept art. But it’s a legit shot from TPM!)
And I honestly think they didn’t include Ben Solo as a ghost because he isn’t an OT character. Or that they wanted it to just be the twins because it’s their (not really) home and sabers being revisited. But Ben has to be there. The implication otherwise is just too weird. What, he’s in Force hell or something?
Here’s my inventory of things left unresolved as of now.
Need opening crawl from Sir Ridley
Need the two vision scenes, desert extension, and “Ben, come home” line from DominicCobb
Two shots from poppasketti for the squeaky wheel scene
Luke’s ghost with haircut and less blue, from jonh, as well as Ben Solo’s ghost for the end of the movie
Once axlanian and krausfadr’s Knights of Ren voiceover is finished, I’ll consider what of it to use
Add Naboo to end celebration montage as recently described (no one has been assigned this task)
Need Coruscant added to the exterior and/or window of the briefing scene on Ren’s destroyer (no one has been assigned this task)
I will try the OST for an alternate musical accompaniment to the added establishing shot of Ach-To
As you can see, there aren’t too terribly many things that remain, at least for the main version. Rey Nobody can then wait until things are fully ready for that as well.
Every time Finn says Rey’s name the movie starts over.
