Oh boo hoo. If you want to argue about the merit of these kinds of silly contests then sure, I'm on board. But the whole Adobe thing is just so boring. If you don't like it, don't use it. Some people have workflows that don't benefit from Adobe products. Some do. Calling Resolve way better though is just ignorant of the market and the needs of people all around.
They're all just different tools and you don't have to constantly scream that one is the best the down with the rest.
You're upset that a company has charged an early cancelation fee on a product you earlier agreed to a yearly contract for? I don't get it. I'm not a super fan of Adobe stuff but I use it a lot for work and this just doesn't seem like anything unusual for any company ever that does this sort of thing.
Hey Jerry, have you tried it? Is this what happens? Also, it doesn't seem like it costs more money than before, so I'm not sure how it's a money making scheme.
Well, that's what the director stated for their intention. He didn't want the actors to make look like the younger versions of themselves who had already appeared in his earlier films. But if you don't believe that as a reason, that's your call.
However, the above de-aging in this article is garbage and would never make the fuct. People are just giddy to see the little flickers of recreated images from movies they love pop in and out of the deepfakes. The smoothing and patchwork is awful and draws your eye to it.
Cool experiment but regardless of resources and team size, the above attempt is a failure.
Besides hating star wars, are you actually familiar with his other work?
The main issue here is that JJ did very little with the movie that came before. Plenty are arguing that it was course correction etc, but it's just lazy writing. The Last Jedi picked up the story from the Force Awakens, Rise of Skywalker did not. It treated the second film as if it almost hadn't happened, which is just bad filmmaking.
JJ wanted to step away and have nothing to do with the second film, then came back for the third and decided he didn't like the second film and retconned a lot of it. The Rose storyline could have been made MORE interesting, not less, with a good writer/director.
