Thanks man; I really like your inksaver stuff and I was trying ‘knock something up’ in a similar style.

As far as the Blu ray goes DigMod, my copy played without issue but in some scenes, especially dark ones, there seemed to be a drop in pict clarity. I am not sure if it’s just my old man eyes or what.

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.

Yeah but the opening scene takes place just a few years after the end of the Clone Wars (I’m a little bit unsure of the new SW chronology about that).

Ummm that would be like saying Operation Red Dawn was last week. If I’m not mistaken, the Clone Wars ended with the fall of the Jedi.

Found something: according to wiki (yeah, I know…), the opening scene takes place 6 years after the foundation of the Empire/end of the Clone Wars/the Jedi purge (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Rogue_One:_A_Star_Wars_Story).

I think your edit is very fine for the purpose you intended it to be (and the little trims over the cargo pilot character that remove his Jar Jar behavior are definitely most welcome !), but I would suggest (if you are thinking about a v2 for your edit some other day) a slight rewrite of the crawl. Here ismy suggestion using yours with small alterations:

Founded at the end of the Clone Wars, the GALACTIC EMPIRE has spread its evil reign across the Galaxy. Hope and freedom are fading into darkness.

To resist it, the last remnants of the REPUBLIC have formed an ALLIANCE. Little do they know that the Emperor is building a new weapon that would secure his absolute power.

Director Krennic has just located the whereabouts of defected scientist Galen Erso, whose knowledge is crucial for the completion of this super-weapon and the fate of the Galaxy…

(english is not my mother tongue so I take it’s no De Palma quality 😃)

edit: by the way, is there a version of your edit with a 5.1 sound file ? (the bluray version is 2.0)

Both A New Hope and Rogue One are set 19 years after the Galactic Empire is set up. That occured at the end of Episode III. In Episode IV, Leia herself says “Years ago you served my father in the Clone Wars”.

If the Clone Wars ended 6 years later, we’re still talking 13 years of Imperial rule.

I do appreciate your comments and push to make this the best it can be.

The opening scene (young Jyn) is 6 years after ROTS, the rest of the movie is 19 years after ROTS.

You got me there.

Just realized I mispelled Eadu on the scene selection and on the chapters insert. If this is a major bother to people I can rerender and upload the BD-25. I suppose checking everything 99 times wasn’t enough…yargle

This is what I’m talking about 😃 the opening scene ! (and the flash back scene on Coruscant - with slightly younger Krennic and Erso - is probably set just after the end of the Clone Wars). DS construction begins a few months after the end of te Clone Wars (according to the strange ending of ROTS); I guess Krennic is in charge of the project with Erso, who believes the Empire is for greater good after the separatist wars. He discovers the evil nature of the Empire, defects, and is found by Krennic 6 years after the foundation of the Galactic Empire. I would love a special TCW episode/arc with Krennic-Erso-Tarkin that would take place in parallel of the events of ROTS. But I digress here 😄

About the audio of your edit I don’t understand if it is supposed to be 5.1 or 2.0 : the audio file I retrieved from the bluray version is 5.1 but when I open it with audacity 4 channels are empty.

That’s weird indeed. Do you have a 5.1 system that you can test it on?

Yeah and it’s indeed weird 'cause all channels display something. Unrelated questiion: you’ve chosen 448 kbps for the audio export, why not 640 kbps which could provide a deeper quality ?

edit: by the way, do you have an external chapter txt. file ? I cannot use iso format so I convert m2ts format into mkv hence I lose the chapters of the bluray version.

No worries - and thanks mate - though your skills and covers are on a different level to mine (I’m still an MS Paint bodge-it-er - and stingy on the black ink 😃)

Really like the discart you did for it too - cool touches like the DigModification tape logo like it’s blended into the schematic, very cool.

DVD Architect will only allow 448 kbps audio streams. The original wma 5.1 files are at 640 kbps

Sorry, I don’t. I mount the iso file and then play it in Leawo Blu Ray Player or VSO media player. Both are free.

After a second check, it appears my sound system just “converted” 2.0 into 5.0, but it doesn’t sound anywhere close to the 5.1 of the bluray (if I put aside the compression factor, I just need to compare with Hal’s PT or Ady’s TESB which have 448 kbps sound tracks as well that really display 5.1).

Judging from the new title and the added crawl, I assume the main goal of this edit is to make it conform to the style of saga films.

I vaguely like the idea of R1 being Episode III, but I still think it works best as an anthology, given that all of the protagonists are new, unrelated to the plot before and after the movie, and die at the end

No offense, kid, but I don’t think you know how to boil water.

I concur, because I like Episode III so I wouldn’t want 2 Episode III for my next SW marathon 😃
