The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)
Time

I spend most of yesterday trying to find the kylo setting for the movie but people seem to get it right at a distance bit those close up shots just look wrong.

I managed to do a hybrid of Luka’s and the movie one and currently working on adding spark particles as an added detail others have requested.

Huge respect for Kewlfish & Luka for attempting these scenes. Patience would be an understatement!

It’s just after the Ben and Han scene. It fits perfectly. I’m just waiting on some 4k footage to see if it improves.

Does it look blurry to you in that clip? It’s from 1080p blu-ray but just looks off to me.

I love that concept - can’t wait to see it in context! But yeah, I do think the shot looks a little blurry. Especially with a planet like Coruscant, where the planet itself has a lot of distinctive, fine-line details and colors, you’d probably want to see that detail a little more clearly. Right now it just kind of looks like any old planet to me. But I don’t have any experience with VFX, so I’m sure whatever you come up with will be great!

Thanks for the feedback. It’s a great help. I managed to get the 4k version and it’s still blurry. I may have to create the whole planet from scratch. 2 months work for a 2 second clip. Gotta love fanediting. 🙄

Maybe you could use these pictures instead of the AOTC footage? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1OTeUcFcpBTXHxmEaDrBEV3Fohk8EE6AG/view

You’re welcome to use this shot I made for Jonh a couple of months back.

Idir_hh I was wondering where youve been. Oh damn! I had no idea you were still working on this scene. Nice job.

Thanks for the update Jonh. I’ll check them with what Poppa sent me and see what’s best.

Thanks for you help guys. 👍🏼

That’s the problem. The effect that I’ve seen other do so far slightly change in most scenes. Some are wavy, some are fluid, some have the effect in the glow, while others in the core.

There’s a 100 settings that all interchange. So, I’m experimenting with flow before I do a bunch of scenes and have to do them again if people don’t agree on the crackle.

I’m just showing examples of what people have suggested to me. If these scenes are already finished by others just let me know? I’m just helping out as we’re in full national lockdown here and all I can do is edit and try to keep busy.

I’m having “planet killing” star destroyers turn up at as many planets as I can find to explain why the galaxy United in TROS and not TLJ.

So, far Kylo turns up at Coruscant (inspired by Idir_hh) and you’re left questioning if he’s good or bad. Here’s a WIP but the footage from the prequels is very grainy and blurry in comparisons to current day footage.

That’s the point. Palpatine is launching an attack against the galaxy, destroying any planet whose citizens refuse to listen to him. He’s basically going to be holding the galaxy at gunpoint.

That’s the exact scene I’ve been working on for months. What planets would you include? (Bear in mind that cloud city, Endor & Naboo are already used in the end scene) I’ve already got Coruscant, Yavin 4, Tatooine, Mustafar…

Corellia and Kashyyyk would be nice.

Corellia could be cool. I looked at adding a Star Destroyer to the dock scene in Solo. I looked through hours of travel videos and drone footage of Thailand to create Kashyyk but couldn’t find anything that would suit. If you know of any footage that would work I’d love to add that planet?
