Hi I have just finished version 0.10 of my fan edit for the machete order. I have cut episode 3 into a 57 minute movie and cut out much of the bulky story line. Like the obione hunting grievous side story and any mention of him and more useles scenes. I am looking for any one who wants to review the edit.
Also any suggestions will be considered.
Current titles I’ve came up with
Fall of the Jedi order
Turn to Vader
Empires Origin
Suggest more great ideas.
Comment if interested in review

The movie itself works surprisingly well. I’m impressed.

I like the higher contrast, but I think it may be a little too high. Especially in lighter shots, it looks really overexposed. I’d tone it down a little. However, the reds look really beautiful. I love Palpatine’s lightsaber. I also love how the blue lightsabers look like blue lightsabers, and not the shitty indigo lightsabers normally in the movie.

I’d do more wipes, less straight cuts, especially in places like between Anakin and Padme at their pad and Obi-Wan leaving for Utapau.

Technically, the video seems kinda laggy. I paused the movie and saw what looks like the blur the GOUT has. That usually happens by artificially changing the framerate, but the framerate was never changed. The file’s huge (for an hour long movie, but some shots look a little compressed.

Additionally, if you’re gonna make a second version, I recommend you render it as 1920x816, not 1920x1080. There’s black bars on the side that don’t do anything but take up data and space (and I can’t crop it because VLC is being a jerk tonight).

Still, though, it’s really well-edited, and the scenes used are really well thought out. Good work!

The Empire did nothing wrong

thanks it was my first edit so i am still learning and i thought the video was kinda laggy also. Something went wrong when i rendered it in Vegas pro but i will try to redo it at a later point. one place i thought the video was to over exposed is the scene where palpatine told anakin of darth plagueis
the transitions and wipes i have not included because all the wipe effects i have dont look like the star wars transitions
thanks for the input it helps a lot and i am glad you like it
