Hi Guys so Here is a Little Update, as I havnt put an update over a week or so …
I just couldn’t bring back the detail in the face of this shot. So I replaced it with a CG version of his head
Below you can see the final output of the shot

Okay, everything looks good! I’m wondering if u added motion blur to the shadow aswell. Also, just finish composting the shadow itself to match the other shadows and we should be good. Also, if you can send me the clean plate (speeder without shadow) and shadow element, I’ll try and composite it myself.

yes Motion Blur is on there… Ive Still not finished it yet. I need to add Match Grain to the Elements and and clean up certain Maskings in this footage

Also I think you should base the SE shadow as reference, and if you can, also trim down the speeder a bit to make it thinner like it is shown here:

Don’t use the SE version of that shot as a basis on how thin the speeder should be. They made a mistake when they did that shot for the SE and cut the bottom off the speeder. Sky_'s version has the correct speeder proportions.

Thankyou… When I was doing this Addy, I did Notice the Special Edition had Just Cut the Bottom off, I did start with that, So you are Correct here in everything about that…
anyway I sent you a Thankyou on FB for the link you sent me Last week so thanks for that

I suggest you to just do a 2D reconstruction of the guy’s legs, it’s a bit easier puppetering it rather than doing a full CG model, although an alternative can be to project the leg texture to the CG model, which can be difficult. Also I suggest to match the speeder shadow to the surrounding elements, and some of them do periodically “light up” which you should match to retain consistency and shot believability.

Also I think you should base the SE shadow as reference, and if you can, also trim down the speeder a bit to make it thinner like it is shown here:

Im already doing a 2D reconstruction of the Legs. I also tried 2D reconstruction from the Special Editions to dit in this but it stands out like a sore thumb… That shadow is correct as it’s created in 3D space. I also used the angles of the shadow placement of each of the characters on the screen to reposition the shadow of the speeder as it changes position on screen… following the original or what the special edition did was kinda off

Below you can see the Shadow is in 3D space, and also Ive RotoScoped the Legs now

Ok so here is an Update, Still need to add grain to add the Added elements Like the ground, Shadows, etc
but the Guy in front is really Pissing me off, Even on the original footage these parts of his legs Disappear,
I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO… I May have to CG the legs … MAYBE
also the shows of some of the Characters are differnt shades throughout, start off dark and some get Lighter, I don’t know if I should do the same with the Speeder Shadow… anyway A lot to think about, Its 5:03 am here in the UK and I’m off to Bed

Here you go Dat_SW_Guy… I still need to Roto out the guy at the front as you can see he disappears, and still a few bits that need doing in this clip, no point explaining them as you can see it… anyway just an update dude

Looks amazing! My only issue with it are some parts were kinda lagging out, and the shadow color looks a bit too grey and not sandy-colored but other than that its amazing!

Yeah I know, Im gonna also Redo the Shadow, and yes Things are lagging but once ive done all the Rotoscoping I will fix it all

One quick question: I see you added turbines to the landspeeder’s engines. I thought that the original vehicle had a mesh grille there, not turbines?
Are the turbines your own unique addition?

There is Mesh on there, But you can’t see it in the Gif. And yes The turbines are my own Addition, I may take them out to be honest

Guys I need your help

as you can see from the top image Luke’s face is really Dark, no matter what I do I can’t bring the face details out.
so I had to replace it with a CG Luke… but im not sure if this was the right way to go, there is a point where I tried to Blend CG luke with real Luke, but I don’t even know if that works, the Main reason is, the HAT is slightly different and this is because I can’t seem to model it correctly…
if there is anyone that can help me with creating that?, that would be awesome.
I also don’t know if there are enough people viewing this thread to see if I need help here, anyway worth a try

Thankyou For reading

by the way, the CG Luke was ripped off from the Star Wars Battlefront II game. The Hat and Goggles were created by me in Cinema 4D, and it’s an awful job as I can’t model for shit

Edit -oh Yeah Roto Still needs cleaning Im aware so Ignore that Part

That first shot looks incredible. Never noticed it before, but kind of a funny continuity error in the original where the first shot shows them driving on a flat surface but the second shot shows it being super bumpy.

Yeah I know, I’ve changes it to flat surface for the continuity reasons

also i dont know why the had the Speeder titled to one side, so that was the reason i also changed it

Can you send me that clip if possible, I want to try adding in a new sky.

Don’t worry my Dude I’m gonna let everyone have them once its completed , not long now, I would recommend you just do a rough Edit with the deleted scenes that are out there, Once I’ve finished , you can replace them with the clean ones

Sorry about that sky, I got too excited there!

Hay It’s all Good man, You’re not the only one asking for this for their Edit, You’re Probably like the 12th person LOL… But when it’s done, everyone will know So don’t Worry my Dude
