Hey everyone ! I’m done with working on the DS fight for the crackling saber and I don’t intend to modify the shots from now (but I can always share the AE files so that one can make the modifications wanted). All the shots are available here, now the only thing needed is to reunite them !

I’ll try to share the Exegol sequence next week.

I offered to help Luka with scenes and wasn’t aware Kewlfish completed any scenes?

I’ve almost finished working on the Exegol sequence and the DS fight between Kylo and Rey but indeed, there are some scenes left to do : the end of the sequence on Kijimi and the small fight between Rey and “Darth Rey”. So if you want to take care of that, it would be great.

Btw, did Kewlfish make the scenes he worked on available before he left ?

What if she just responded to “I AM ALL THE SITH!” with “I am a Jedi.” She’s finally accepting her role and place in the story, and it’s a nice callback to the “I am a Jedi, like my father…” from ROTJ

Actually, changing this line would also bring more symbolism about the opposition between Sith and Jedi (although I don’t know so much about the SW lore) : the Sith get more and more powerful by having the master taking control of its apprentice (as explained in the movie, thus why Palpatine is “all” the Sith), while the Jedi become more and more powerful by passing on their knowledge to the new ones (thus saying that you’re “a” jedi is enough to imply that you carry with you all the Jedi knowledge, an idea pretty well symbolized with the Force ghosts in the scene).

Thank you all for your help ! I think I’ll share an alpha render, the AE files and the movie version I’ve worked on (I couldn’t work on the original version, I have the Blu-Ray but no device to extract the movie from it). I might DM some people here for more advice when I’m fully satisfied with what I’ve done.

Also, I checked what Kewlfish did, I think we used the same plug-in since my version of Luke’s saber is quite consistent with his.

Hi ! I’ve started working on the Exegol sequence. Here’s part 1 :

DominicCobb, I didn’t find a good effect on AE to do what you asked, I know that it is possible on DaVinci Resolve with Fusion but for mysterious reasons, I can’t manage to have Resolve working on my computer.

Also, I’m having real trouble to handle the crackling effect on close-up shots of the saber, so please feel free to take a look at it if you think you can improve it.

One last question : which version of Leia’s saber should I work with for the Exegol sequence ? Blue or purple ?

Ok guys, here’s the final part of the DS fight : https://vimeo.com/492230855

I’ll try to improve the close-up shots of the saber in part 2 tomorrow.

And unfortunately, I don’t have the original material of the movie on my computer, that’s why I’m working with Hal’s version. But that shouldn’t be a problem, I can provide the After Effect files of each shot, then replacing the video with the original shot of the movie would be the only work needed.

Hey guys ! I understand why you would like to use DOTF during this fight since it was in the advertisement for the movie but imo, it isn’t really fitting story-wise. To me the purpose of this fight is to show Rey’s descent towards the dark side with her eventually stabbing a weaponless Kylo. So I made a quick try to rescore the scene with this “Dark Rey” theme made by Levente Kovacs on YT and I really like how it turned out. What do you think ?

Well, +1 for me too.
I understand that this scene is a little absurd from a technological point of view but by removing it :
-it hurts the pacing
-it makes the next scene on Ajan Kloss feel weird, with Finn popping out of nowhere
-it makes it unclear how the Knights of Ren were able to follow Rey and co on Kijimi later in the movie

So it seems a good compromise to keep it in the movie. The only issue would be to remove Klaud from some shots…

Yeah, about the ending : Hal, have you considered removing the shot of Rey in the X-wing at the end of the battle ?

It completely lessens the impact of Ben Solo’s death in my opinion, let alone the fact that it’s just a copy of another shot in the movie with blood added on Rey. It would be more emotional if the first time we saw Rey after the battle is at the Resistance base. Besides, it would give extra-room for the music during the celebration sequence, meaning more planets…
