I’ve recently reviewed this thread and find parts of it pretty fascinating. I am all for enhancing things, scenes or whatnot, especially “updating” the look of things. I see that Adywan is an inspiration in this matter and I do love his approach on enhancing established shots. For you I like the enhancing of planets, engine glowing and eventually working on shadows and some of the weakest CGI scenes. The biggest glaring one I see is the Gungan retreat scene and the tanks moving on the field. Anyway, things like that if you can work on those hots to look better, to the best of your abilities.
However, I myself am not sold on a couple of things. Like the force push effect … looks kinda silly to be honest. Also the bombing of Naboo doesn’t work for me too. I feel like it’ll be a lot of work with not much payoff.
The force push will get pulled out. Was just trying some stuff to see how people felt about it, whether the idea or the implementation. I do plan on fixing all of those the best i can. Some things i would like to learn Blender to do properly. I want the cgi to not be so flat and clean.
As far as the Attack on Theed, are you referring to the Purist Cut trailer or the other trailers? The Purist Cut will only have scenes from the movie, no new scenes. If those scenes in that trailer are what you mean lmk. If you mean the other ones, yes they need work and likely wont make the final version. I would like to try to use Blender instead for those scenes to pull off what i really want.
Feel free to give completely honest input, i really appreciate it. I would like to make these as good as possible
