Over a period of several months, George Lucas approved hundreds of designs that eventually appeared in this movie. He re-wrote entire scenes and action sequences to correspond to certain designs he had chosen. The designs were then shipped to "pre-visualization" to create moving CGI versions known as "animatics". Ben Burtt edited these scenes with Lucas, in order to previsualize what the movie would look like, before the scenes were even filmed. The pre-visualization footage featured a basic raw CGI environment with equally unprocessed CGI characters performing a scene (typically an action sequence). Steven Spielberg was also allowed to assist the art and pre-visualization department's designs for several action sequences in this movie. Later, the Pre-visualization and Art Department designs were sent to the Production Department to begin "bringing the film out of the concept phase" by building the various sets, props, and costumes. To determine the required sets, Lucas analyzed each scene with the staff to see which moments the actors would come in most contact with the set, warranting the set to be constructed.
Lock on to him R2.
Anakin Skywalker: Master, General Grievous's ship is directly ahead. The one crawling with Vulture droids.
Obi-Wan: Oh, I see it. Oh, this is going to be easy.
In the duel between Mace Windu and Palpatine the camera shots are obviously alternating between those of Ian McDiarmid, playing Palpatine and those of the stuntman, who does not look much like the actor he is standing in for.
