Also, kudos for noticing the color in the reflection on the floor too, you cheeky bastard, you. That really helps to sell it.

Don’t mean to interrupt the conversation, but just have to point out it was Chase Adams that pointed this out in my original mockup. Got to give credit where it’s due!

However Poppasketti,
I think you need to… reflect on that clip you posted. If you catch my drift… 😉

I will say that Poppa did some good work there. Just feel like his talents would have been better served by putting TIEs into Cinefy’s Mustafar shot or something else.

I am actually PMing with Cinefy, so maybe something will come of it.

In terms of my time, though, it’s not really a “this task vs that task” sort of thing, rather it’s what I can reasonably find time to do, especially if I’m only working a few minutes at a time like it often is these days. Animating 3D models in Cinema4D takes more solid chunks of time so it wasn’t really something I was ready to jump into.

Chase, I agree that black would look very cool! I don’t think it would be easy to implement with the material we have. It’s easier to shift the hue of the existing color with secondaries, but trying to change to black won’t look quite right, unfortunately!

Heylo,

Excited to see all the new developments here with the dagger and 3PO!

Meanwhile, here’s a pass at recoloring the Tie Whisper to imply Kylo has other models after the first is destroyed. Sorry for the delay on this, I haven’t had much free time lately.

I also recolored some of the interior to give it a slightly new feel. This is not really noticeable in the first few Kylo shots, but more so when Rey is in the cockpit. Some of the rear panels now have a matching yellow design. I’m not married to this idea, but thought it was worth a try!

Could the scenes of Kylo in the forest be graded differently to better match that shot?

Possibly, but I actually think the two tie shots after the new lava shot could be regraded a little to better match it too. The first shot of ties with the castle is very dark and orange. Maybe an adjustment there would make the transition to the forest scene more gradual.

Just wanna thank Poppa again for the work on the “lately” line. Sounds perfect to me.

No problem! And even if it doesn’t make it into this edit, hopefully you can still use it for your own.

Edit: (Please do not add this)

Oh wow. I mean, you said not to use it, but what if you turned it way down and added lots of reverb so it’s just noise basically. Maybe change “flu” to “Covid” as a way to really stamp this a work of the pandemic-times. What an Easter Egg! 😉

Here is the version I would prefer you to watch tomorrow Hal (only includes the line I feel is the most flawless):

Hey Jar Jar,

May I suggest you try pitching down her Lego lines? Not only would it bring a little bass into her voice, it would also make her tone a little less chipper I think. That plus a little EQ might get you closer.

Here’s a quick test:

Not sure if it works enough though?

If it’s just the scene where Rey steals it than it’s two shots. The absolute easiest thing to do I think is remove the red coloring around the center. That may not be enough though since it would just look like the shot is a bit desaturated (which it already is). Changing it from red to something else like gold may be doable. I think changing the “wings” is the hardest because you’d really have to lock in the motion tracking to each piece.

I’m sorry I haven’t been able to help much lately. Hal, if you wouldn’t mind sending me those two shots of Rey stealing the tie, I could take a look at it. I don’t know when I’d be able to get to it though.

IMO this movie needed to be 3 hours long in order to work right. Reminds me of the whole Justice League situation. I hope one day we get a longer cut just like with that movie.

I guess I can see why Disney would balk at departing too much from the other saga films in terms of length, but I agree with you. And I think at this point fans and movie audiences in general have gotten used to longer runtimes for these big tent pole movies.

An extended edition would be nice; would been a good use of resources after a year without much production.

I love the pink sunrise, Nev. I found it striking the first time I saw it. I didn’t know about the intention to hint at Leia, but I think it looks like beautiful dawn light. The only thing I wonder about it is if the sun would have shone on the X-wing as it rises up based on the sun’s position in the shots of Luke. That’s the only reason I can think of to maybe warm it up a little bit and move slightly away from pink. Overall, it’s a beautiful grade, though!

The Last Jedi: Rekindled (Released) (V3 UPDATE!)
Time

Big thanks go to PodracingThisIs91 for the painstaking effort in creating Spanish subtitles for this project! I have uploaded the SRT file to the drive for those who have already downloaded Rekindled and simply would like to mux in the subtitles themselves, but I also have remuxed the full films myself and re-uploaded them to drive.

These are currently only for the main V3 version with the Palpatine teases. I hope to be able to provide Spanish subs for the “No-Palp” version in the future.

Once again, thank you PodracingThisIs91!
