Star Wars: A New Hope (DEVASTATOR EDITION) WIP.

I certainly appreciate you tackling this shot. It needed a bit more love years ago.
I’d say you’re pretty close! There’s still some halo-ing around the characters (I’m seeing specifically their heads). And the background seems maybe still too in-focus? I think it’s 3PO that’s throwing me off. Isn’t he kind of out of focus in this shot? I’m trying to remember now…

I have been meaning to ask: what is different in these pics compared to the original?

The officer’s insiginia has been changed to make him a captain, as thats what he is in the books/credits.

I also added the targeting computor that originally was missing from the scene

Nice!

Entirely Removing/Dramatically Reducing Dooku's Force Lightning?
Time

Because there’s no close up of Anakin hitting against the wall, it comes off as comical imo.

Why not have the thing Dooku chucks at Anakin follow him and also hit the wall?
Both hit the wall (use the close up), recolor the lightning to yellow/white, add in some additional electrical sound fx…then it might come off as this object having excess electricity while hitting Anakin?
Just a thought.

This de-aged Anakin showed up on my feed today:

It’s certainly going in the right direction.

I mean it looks janky and smooths out his face too much. If this was what Lucasfilm did, then there would be outrage for the overuse of CGI.

I’d rather have Hayden himself just do it, as it doesn’t really matter since he still looks youngish.

To be clear, the person who made this said it was their first time using deepfacelab…so yes it’s a bit janky. Plus the video doesn’t look quite high rez so that doesn’t help either.
I’m sure someone out there (cough shamook cough) can make a better one.

The scene is pretty great…and I can certainly watch it and enjoy it for what it is. At the same time, the visible age difference with Anakin is a bit distracting and I personally would like to see someone tackle a de-aged version again.

Hmm…I wonder if, because of the prequels being shot at 1080p (right?) that Lucasfilm didn’t have enough high rez material to work from to pull off a deepfake? Maybe?

It would be more dramatic to physically introduce Vader in the village rather than on Mustafar, besides it would spare us from looking at that terrible throne room “set”.

omg yes! That was absolutely terrible looking! Vader didn’t look integrated into the scene. Terrible green screen or however they did it. The mustafar sky in the background looked like someone used a noise effect in their video editing software and barely adjusted the settings. It took me right out of watching the show.
