The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (WIP)
Time

Hal, I just finished watching the workprint and I must say…nice work so far. This is shaping up to be much better than the original for sure. My only thing about it is the “FOR SKYWALKER” line. Don’t get me wrong, I love it. However, do you think it would be better for the fleet to say “FOR LEIA!” instead. I guess in my mind these people are coming from around the galaxy to fight for the rebellion and Leia more so than for Luke and the Jedi.

Sorry!!!

Jonh, I know you’ve spent a lot of time to get this right, and I really think you have done a great job. But I do have a suggestion, what if after Rey says, “and I am all the Jedi” we see the same shot of the ghosts as before, but then they start to enter Rey, as though they are inhabiting her. You could use a similar effect as when Palps is sucking the life force from Kylo and Rey. But it would work in reverse until the ghosts completely disappear.

I also think this “force sucking” effect would be good to see when Rey heals the cave worm. It would set a precedent for that force ability early on.

Eh, some guy already tried the Jedi entering her, and it just seems silly to me:

I think what jon has now is already perfect. The ghosts are actively using the Force to help Rey repel Palpatine, and it’s not just ‘oh, I have a second saber now, so take that!’

nothing like this at all

That’s some very nice work. However, I think the only way I would actually want to use it as if it is so subtle that it’s almost hard to notice on the first viewing.

Jonh,
This is some great stuff, I think if you made them seem more in the distance (maybe add some blur for distance) and only appear with the lightning strikes and then disappear in the shadows, it would sell the effect better

Yeah dude, this looks great. Have you looked into a render farm to assist in rendering your projects? Sheepit is free and has a pretty good community.

I didn’t but it seems to be a game-changer, thanks! Right now, one frame of this animation is rendering about 12 minutes (in ray-trace sampling 1300, which isn’t good enough), and I have about 470 of them to render, just for the one shot…

conversely, if you dont mind spending a little $ then https://www.conciergerender.com/ seems to be really cheap

I’ve been experimenting with different lights and color grading. I also added some more details to the model itself.
Ps. This model was propably done in 3DSMax, I’m modyfying and rendering it in Blender.

The Sequel Trilogy: Trilogized (a Work In Progress)
Time

This sounds quite interesting. I like the ideas for TFA and TLJ. I would try and rework the crawl a bit for TFA though. But hinting to Palps from the beginning is a great idea. Especially the idea of adding him to the end of TLJ and Kylo on Mustafar at the beginning. I’m not sure how I feel about deleting Kijimi from the film. By doing this your not left with much of a movie after adding much of the beginning to TLJ. Also making Palp a clone is an interesting idea, but does open up the thought that no one could ever kill him if there is just an endless number of clones. But all in all I’m interested in checking this out

All your edits seem on point but would you for v2 consider maybe some harder changes like ones found in CarstenJ.dk of Solo edit here:
https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Solo-A-Star-Wars-Edit-Released/id/65231/page/1

eg:

  • After crawl and planet pan open with Han a Quira escaping on speeder and rework the crawls text to fit.
  • Less in your face lucky dice shots
  • Add deleted scene where he gets demoted to the infantry
  • No Han getting the blaster from Becket.
  • Cut most of Han speaking wookie.
  • When formerly introduced to Chewie, cut out Han saying “Chewbacca” as it sounded patronizing
  • Fix the over the top score which makes your ears bleed about half way through the train heist or cut heist down.
  • Val does not sacrifice herself stupidly she just gets blown up by the droids.
  • Cutdown the kiss between Han & Quira in the falcon by cutting to Becket as to similar to Empires Han & Leia kiss in falcon.
  • Cut L3 fist pumping the air and shouting “Rebellion!” at the spice mines

This might be close to what you are looking for
