Sounds good. Actually seems quite similar to the edit I have done, though I think I’ve been more savage with the opening - after crawl, we start on the prison rescue of Jyn so there’s no great time jump.

I just read this thread and I am intrigued. I loved Rogue One a lot and I like most of the changes based on your list you have made. Like some others, my personal taste would be leaving the “ethical delima” and the “I’m blind scene” intact, but other than that, I look forward to watching it!

Cuts and Additions:

- Removed Rogue One Title card, now hard cuts to Jyn waking up as if she was dreaming

- Removed Bor Gullet

Seems like I finally found my go-to version of Rogue One! YAY!

EDIT: I’m very interested in seeing this + HttF in BD-25!

I just watched it and I liked it a lot. I originally enjoyed Rogue One very much and thought it was a great movie in theaters.

I like your decisions you made and was a bit reserved on the removing Cassians first scene. I thought it was necessary to have it for his character, but after watching it … it was not absolutely needed. Everything else I like very much … But I personally missed the “I’m blind” line, it wasn’t forced like a good bit of the easter eggs that were added.

Anyway, I enjoyed it, good job!

Thanks jarbear! I appreciate the feedback 😃 I was also very leery about removing Cassian’s intro for the same reasons. I even went as far as making the stormtrooper be the one to shoot the informant. Moe_Syzlack kept up the challenge and after implementing it I think it creates a better film, as you point out. Thanks to everyone who has supported this project in anyway, shape or form 😃

I haven’t watched it entirely, but it felt the little cuts here and there were seamless and that they tighten the movie better (it’s far less boring). So indeed I think the movie is better in this shape (sadly most of my issues with this movie - the plot itself and the characters - can hardly be fixed with fanediting). Well done !
I would nevertheless also remove the opening scene to leave Jyn’s backstory only known by dialogues and flash-backs (why not even remolding the opening scene as a silent flash-back ?). I’m not very convinced by the text of the opening crawl. Too long and too pro-Empire (and a reference to the Clone Wars that ended a few years ago would be much welcome).

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.

I realized there is one thing that I think deserve’s a fix, which is not a personal taste or anything, but the action sequence was altered between Krenick and Death trooper vs. Jyn and Cassian. It started with 2 death troopers but only one was shot and fell. I believe you took out the part where the first one was shot and fell flat on his stomach. By altering that scene, in a sense you erase one mid fight. I think that part should be restored … not out of personal taste but it appears to make it look like a edit mistake.

Other than that, I like what you did.

The crawl was purposefully Empire centric. This is their reign of terror and so I wanted to focus on that. This isn’t supposed to be an uplifting crawl, imho. It’s supposed to show the power of the Empire and why the Rebellion has to finally unite and rise up in open warfare. If they don’t, the Empire will ensure galactic Order. The clone wars have been over for nearly two decades, so I didn’t want to reference them as they have no connection to this story.

As for the death trooper, I didn’t touch that scene, so that one is on the official editor 😉

I appreciate the feedback!

There isn’t any .info available for this edit. Where is it located?

Only “No Moe” is available on the spleen.

It’s like it’s quite possible that Picasso would have loved to use Photoshop for some of his paintings if it was available back then, but if you take a picture from Picasso and recreate it in Photoshop, it’s not going to be the same picture and it can hardly be used to demonstrate Picasso’s brush techniques.
