Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - FanEdit Ideas <strong><em>SPOILERS</em></strong>
Time

I get the idea here, but there are a couple of issues that need to be resolved for this to work. First, Scariff and Tatooine require some travel time. We need to perhaps see the Tantive IV in hyperspace. If someone could superimpose the tantive IV and a star destroyer over the Enterprise being shot at in warp by the Vengeance (ST:ID) that would help with the transition between the two planets. Second, the visuals are just too crisp in Rogue One. If this is an intended edit, the RO footage needs A LOT of grading to simulate a 70’s era film.

Are you referring to the Rogue One audio? If so, where did you get the audio from? This hasn’t been released?

I’m very interested in your edit and the fresh take and reasoning behind it.

The Lightsabers look off to me. Too much white, not enough color imho.

Great work so far!

Well, you could always use John William’s Saving Private Ryan if you’re going that route. Then you’d have a complete Williams Star Wars anthology.

If every Movie had a post credit scene
Time

Hmmm…well most post credit scenes serve to further the story rather than to distract from it. Adding Boba would be an error, imo. It brings in a distraction that is never resolved. As much as I’m supposing Hal’s are in jest, I actually really like the Yoda idea in relation to this concept. It serves as a teaser of things that actually will happen and be seen. Ultimately I’m not sure post credit scenes are appropriate for Star Wars movies.

I think it really depends on how intensive the rescore is. There are parts of the score that work well and could be left as is. The real issues will arise when you are trying to rescore scenes with dialogue and/or with very loud music. Battle scenes are relatively ok if you can find the correct sound fx to fill in the lost sound. Does the new battlefront have a file folder with rogue one sound files? That would be a good start.

It’s a real pity there’s such a difference in Leia’s hairstyle during that deleted scene. In fact, I like that softer, ‘ponytailed’ look on her, and wish she’d had that throughout the majority of her scenes.

I think the real difference is her acting in this scene. This isn’t Leia we are seeing, it’s Carrie Fisher.

(speaking of discontinuity issues, anyone that ends up dispensing with the ‘Chewie/Nurse’ scene also gets rid of the fact that she is suddenly holding the gadget in her other hand)

This scene is integral to the edit. It explains why Han had to get a new jacket and shirt. That doctor stole them :p

Not bad. I’m still not a fan of the deleted scene, but this was a good insert. Is this sped up? It seems slightly faster than what I’m used to. You wouldn’t happen to be using a PAL source would you?

I suppose they are akin to the Nazis of post WW1 Germany.

No. Not at all.

Here’s a good read about this.

“That all came out of conversations about what would have happened if the Nazis all went to Argentina but then started working together again?’” Abrams added. “What could be born of that? Could The First Order exist as a group that actually admired The Empire? Could the work of The Empire be seen as unfulfilled? And could [Darth] Vader be a martyr?"

This is what my comment was a out. They aren’t the Empire. So rising again to power doesn’t make sense.

These are fanatics who admire the Empire but are definitely different. They existed before during and after the Empire. They just never made their move until the Empire crumbled. So yes, they are very much like the Nazis.

Sorry Hal. Just wanted to explain why I would think that line on the crawl wouldn’t work for me.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Prolonged Reveal)

Thanks Hal, I really appreciate you taking the time to watch/listen to it. That was the intent of the effect. I did use a single MF turret sound and chopped it up to simulate the rapid fire you speak of. I recently found a better source for the turret sound and thought if others felt it sounded to much like an add-on that I’d revisit the sfx.

I’m really wanting to just release the thing. It’s been over 7 months since I posted that draft…I remember the first week when I thought it would be done within 2 weeks. HA!

I’ve migrated the project file to the new vegas 13 and it seems that it transferred successfully without a hiccup. I’m looking for some final feedback about the sound in this scene:

This is a draft from some time ago, but I’m mostly wanting feedback on the falcon’s turrets. Are they acceptable to your ears or should I do some modification to the sound? Specifically, do they need more variance and movement? Thanks!

lol, maybe the crawl should be mostly, “They’ve somehow built a hyperlightspeed weapon built within a planet itself. Not a laser canon, but something on a scale difficult to describe. Not another Death Star, but STARKILLER BASE. IT’S BIG.”

Nice to see that someone took out the cheers when they arrive. Hal, would you be interested in my Hologram Snoke for your edit? I also have Kylo hooded and helmeted in every scene that I use.

I like Hal’s paragraph about Leia gathering in support for the Resistance. It made the formation of the Resistance more clear.
