CHRONOLOGICAL REVENGE OF THE SITH (RELEASED!)

KENOBI-PADME scene update.

I kept trying. I tried with other rain effects, with color correction, brightness, contrast, etc. But it still remains too much visible, and even if I change settings in a considerable way there is the problem of the CGI in background that becomes a punch in the face.
The only solution would be a completely new background, but I don’t have any instrument nor capability to do it. I’m not Adywan 😄

This is the last test. I gave a blueish tone. It seems the scene is set right before dawn or sunset.
Now you simply have to choose between the two.

After this I’ll give you the Darth Vader presentation shot. You’ll have to choose between two different musics, one being an Imperial March remix and the other being the “Hope” track from Rogue One.

Lol, if anyone has any suggestion on how to improve the scene I’m glad to hear it.
If I change settings on the rain green screen, rain disappears.
Tha masking on the column remains too much visible, probably because of the double effect (darkening and rain behind).
I don’t know how to darken the sky, cause it has the same problems of the rain.

I can leave it the way it is, with the simple darkening effect.
Or I can add the storm sound, but then when we see the sky, it is not a stormy sky.

I think for the time being I will pass to other scenes, lol.

I like this idea man. I see what you’re saying about the rain though. I kind of think this particular rain effect just doesn’t work for some reason. Maybe another would, or messing with the opacity of the effect.

If the rain doesn’t work, maybe you could just add distant sounds of thunder instead.
I think the color grading looks cool, though the horizon does seem a little bright. I think that kind of gives the effect away a little bit since you can’t really do much about the sky being clear despite how stormy the mood feels now.

Totally my opinion, but I think adding thunder sounds, and maybe trying to darken the sky somehow, might be more effective than adding rain in the background.

Thank you very much for the suggestions 😉 I’ll see if I can manage to improve the rain effect. Otherwise I’ll try something else.

RAIN PREVIEW.

This is what it looks like. (audio is still to be worked on)
I think you understand my skepticism.
I masked Padme every single frame. In fact, I dont think you notice it that much.
But the cutting around the background floor and the column is pretty mich visible, and I don’t know how to fix it.

I’d like to know your first impression.
If you think it is acceptable, then I continue and cut Obi and Padme even in the following scene. Then I slowly dissolve rain before Kenobi leaves.

Otherwise it will go only with darker setting and without rain.

And another VIDEO PREVIEW.

This clip is about n. 21 of my change list.
I made a color correction on the Obi Wan-Padme scene to make it less colorful and sunny, and more dark and dramatic.
Removed mention of Anakin killing younglings.
MAYBE I will try to add rain on background again. But I can’t make promises.

Maybe add in a line where Palpatine says he is Anakin’s father.

You mean the theory about Plagueis or Palpatine manipulating the Force to “create” Anakin?
Unfortunately I don’t have any instrument to do it, nor any believable voice to add (I’m not from an English-speaking country), but at least it will be clearer that Palpy is the one controlling Anakin’s dreams.
But if you have any suggestion about how to at least point out about the matter, I would be extremely glad to consider it.

In the council scene where Anakin is waiting, I can do a Palpatine voice and you could include it there.

That would be cool. I can make a reverb effect and put it on background sound.
It could be something like “Chosen one… conceived by the Force… no father… manipulate to create life”.
Or something like that, something that suggests that Palpatine (or Plaguieis) has something to do with it.

Phrosted, just give me a week and then pm me

Of course, I’m not in a hurry. Take your time.

Another color correction.
As you can see the floor is less blueish and more greyish, and Anakin’s lightsaber is more similar to the OT, while keeping Dooku’s one the same.

Just a question: I remember a website where you can see the comparison by just using the mouse. What website is that?
