That’s actually completed to my satisfaction, and hasn’t substantially changed since this update on page 26:

If it’s not too much trouble would you mind showing what the falcon chase scene looks like with the new washed out colours? That’s the first scene I thought of when I heard of the new colour correction.

Would it be better if I were to replace the rocks behind Luke and have him fade in totally independent of the surroundings?

I’d like to see what that would look like but I honestly prefer letting the scene play out without fading in luke at the beginning like the previous iterations mainly because the blur-in makes it look like an illusion within a dream and maybe it would give away the fact that Rey is just generating a fantasised version of luke which I think should be kept for TLJ as a shock when the audience finds out that he is just an old hermit on a rock.

Concerning the final scenes, it becomes more and more clear that I need to show BB-8’s contribution to the map or else the Resistance looks that much worse for failing to search R2. So I’ve extended the TLJ musical cue to give the map scene more time to breathe. There are also a few small changes to the Luke dream I’m sure you’ll spot:

The music transitions are really top notch and the bright dream affect is superb, I personally wouldn’t blur luke at the beginning instead leaving it till the end of the dream so that it remains more subtle.

This deal is getting better every time! , what do you think about having a white fade-in when the dream starts and a white fade-out when it ends instead of the dreamy filter just like you did when focusing on luke, it’s more subtle but it really drives home that it’s a dream.

Star Wars: The Coaxium Heist (COMPLETED)

Watched it, huge improvement all round especially with the color grading and brightness which allows you to SEE what’s happening contrary to the original. One thing I wish was altered though is the blue lighting in Lady Proxima’s lair, the cuts made really improve the pacing and make it less fan servicy (Mual I’m looking at you), overall I’d highly recommend this as a worthy alternative to the original.
