That’s kind of like thermonuclear physics to me, but I’ll return to it, lol.
LEIA’S HOLOGRAM CLIP.
LUKE’S LIGHTSABER CLIP.
I still can’t consider it as bad… I find it more in line with the PT and ST.
Anyway, you guys are surely more expert than I am.
What do you think about this?
Thank you for criticism.
Right now I quite like it, it looks less flat IMHO, so at least for now I’ll keep it.
What is it that you don’t like?
At the moment… nope. 😄
I’m sorry, I quite enjoyed it, but it looks way too different. Maybe I will add one or two shots of Vader, but nothing from the actual duel.
I’m considering to have a whole different cut for the duel. If I manage to make it work, I’d like to have something similar to the “Return” cinematic trailer from The Old Republic.
Thank you so much 😉
You can see the new crawl (any suggestions welcomed) and the color correction (Tatooine, its atmosphere, the engines).
Thank you! Yeah, the close-up has already been removed. I just need to find a shot for the base exterior…
And here’s the edited blaster bolts (with new music track).
Death Star hologram and Dantooine search.
This is the clip which I already posted in the Radical Ideas thread.
It still needs work on the hologram, and the Dantooine search will be shortened, but that’s it.
Sometimes the CC is less visible.
(Mostly on the Tantive walls and on 3PO)
OPENING SHOT COMPARISON
Here’s what I’m talking about.
No new visual effect, just color changes.
THE SON OF SKYWALKER.
Nineteen years have
passed since the death of
Anakin Skywalker. The
GALACTIC EMPIRE rules
Having fought a desperate
battle over the planet of
Scarif to steal the secret
plans of the Empire’s
ultimate weapon, the
DEATH STAR, the Rebel
Alliance hopes to use
them to find a weakness
in the dreadful station.
Princess Leia Organa,
daughter of Senator Bail
Organa, tries to escape
with the plans, closely
followed bu the Emperor’s
right hand, DARTH
I will go back to my Episode III edit (Rise of the Dark Side), but right now I started working on this one.
The main purpose of this is to create a main saga which is watchable in episodic order.
In order to do this, in the prequels Anakin is NOT Obi Wan’s apprentice, and in Episode IV there will be no mention about Vader being Ben’s former apprentice.
Vader is just a Jedi who betrayed the Order, but at this moment we, as audience, believe that Anakin is dead (showed in Episode III and in this movie’s crawl).
When Ben says that Vader killed Anakin, we know very well that this is a lie, but we accept it because we realize that Ben could never tell that to Luke.
The other two overall changes will be on the visual and musical sides.
I’m not a professional editor, and I only use Sony Vegas, but wherever I can I will change the look of the scenes (colors, backgrounds, blaster bolts, lightsabers, etc.). I will also add/change music in order to give the feel on one single cohesive saga.
Complete changelist to be added as soon as possible.
Blaster bolts clip.
I’m starting to work on ANH edit. New title: “The son of Skywalker”. Other suggestions? I don’t really like “A new hope”.
Here’s a short clip, anyway. Of course it’s made frame by frame.
Yep, I’ll do as you guys say. I started working on an ANH edit. As soon as I have something more substantial, I will post it. It’s just an edit in line with my previous edits (removing any mention of Vader being Obi Wan’s former apprentice) with some new music tracks and some small visual changes (whatever I can do with only Sony Vegas).
Yes, that is a problem. But perhaps you can crop or stabilize some scenes from these:
Thinking about some closeups of storm troopers patrolling and looking, just a few seconds at most.
Then you cut to the hologram.
I think this is at least acceptable.
If you want, tell me what you think about it 😉
Interesting! Perhaps you can incorporate some fan movie footage and show them searching the abandoned base ? I’ve seen some good fan movies about Storm Troopers that might work here.
Do you have anything in mind? I usually dislike fan movie additions, but if the cinematography is quite similar I could surely add it.
Been messing around with ANH (lightsabers, millennium falcon’s interiors, Death Star, etc.)
This one still needs work, but I think it’s quite cool.
ANH Millennium Falcon’s CC.
I’d like to make the MF’s interior to look like the one from The Force Awakens. Don’t know why, but I liked it.
Here’s the screenshot comparison: http://www.framecompare.com/image-compare/screenshotcomparison/P7GPNNNX
(More blue in the room, the corridors are more yellow-ish, and Luke’s lightsaber is recolored to be more in line with Anakin’s lightsaber)
As I said, the DS color correction is really rough, but it is meant to be darker. I want it to look less like a studio set and more like a dark control room in space. It needs work, of course 😉
Episode IV clips.
I was just playing with ANH. Here are some tests.
This is pretty simple, but I like it. 3PO has more color, and Luke’s lightsaber is more in line with poth the prequels and the sequels.
Here’s a test with the hologram. Also, we can see some light when the camera is on Luke/Ben.
This is really in early stage, but it’s a color correction to make the Death Star control room look like the one from Rogue One.
Tell me what you think about these clips 😉
I really wanted to like this.
I didn’t even manage to finish it.
I liked the dreamy short sequence before Finn wakes up, but the Battlefront footage looks awful and completely useless, and the voiceover sounds terrible. Almost all the music additions have problems, and I found Luke’s new phrases extremely boring and predictable.
I’m really sorry for this, but I was expecting something way better.
