Here are some previews of a few little things I did. (Sorry everything is so red/dark; I forgot to adjust the levels. It’s only a problem w/ these previews)
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bx-b_Drhy38reHN3QzhfYkVVeXM/view?usp=sharing

A recent iteration of the “roger roger” bit.
The “General Skywalker” drops.
Tweaked Anakin/Obi Wan war room intro.
Tweaked Palps/Anakin appointment.
Tweaked master denial scene + removal of “young Skywalker”

some constructive feedback:
Anakin and Palpatine scene - adjust the levels so they match - the “and you saved my life” bit is a tad too loud compared to the previous line

Anaking and Jedi council scene - if you cut the visual from Mace to Anakin right when Mace says ‘take a seat (cut) young Skywalker’ - then you can avoid the lips not matches. Just snip a bit of audio during the following silence and it’ll sync up… 😃

good stuff!

Does Adywan’s Revisited project not count?

no not that what he said was he’s not updating things like the cgi ships going to attack the death star etc. cgi bespin cgi tatoonie cgi ending of jedi etc.

No i did NOT say that at all. I haven’t even mentioned how i’m going to end ROTJ or what changes i will be making for ANH:R HD.

Reading this made this thread totally worth it. 😃

These are some mock-ups I did on how to handle that scene;

A much more subtle approach

I think that one’s pretty chilling and cool, but the audience misses out on Vader’s reaction to Padme’s death.

This one includes Vader’s reaction, but uses a different scream

Right now I’m downloading the Anti-Cheese edits to see how Jeremy handles the scene, I’ll try to update with a clip of it once it’s downloaded.

EDIT:

Another alternate scream from the man behind the Anti-Cheese Edits

From the Anti-Cheese Edit’s official release, no scream at all. Well, maybe a minor scream but it’s mostly drowned out by the building crumbling.

Soooooo am I the only one who laughed when they heard that scream? lol cringe-worthy.

The only complaint I’d have with the inclusion of the line from rebels is the part that says “I destroyed him”. Within the context of the movie, and having watched ObiWan basically defeat and humilliate Vader only 10 minutes before, that part of the line sounds as Anakin rationalizing and making up for his failure in his mind.

But answering Anakin Skywalker was weak alone isn’t complete neither.

I remember there was a video made by TheCutter where he used another line that, when asked “anakin, can you hear me” went more or less like “that name no longer has any meaning for me. Now I know the power of the dark side” (and started crushing things). Perhaps if you added “anakin skywalker was weak” instead of the line borrowed from ROTJ could preserve the meaning and loose the pretension of Vader having the psicological structures of a weak person (esencially saying he won when he clearly lost).

But that’s what narcissists do… they rationalize their failures… live in alternate reality. They manipulate the truth… which I feel gives Vader so much depth as a character. Just my opinion… and I actually edited a version usind The Cutter’s line as well, as an alternative - check it out here https://vimeo.com/161839414

I think there are multiple ways to execute this scene without having to use the “Frankenstein breaking free” or the infamous ‘nooooooooo’ - my edits were just meant to show some possibilities given the material we have to work with. If they help or influence anyone’s edit, sounds great to me!

This is a big one, thanks to ImperialFighter for the suggestion in a private topic, but I think I’m doing away with the Darth Vader scream of anguish, improved LoE version or not. The Vader awakens sequence is very different now, and I used an idea I got from a re-edit of the scene on Vimeo that I saw a few months ago but can’t seem to find anymore. But basically, it goes:

P: Anakin. Can you hear me?

DV: … Anakin Skywalker was weak… I destroyed him.

Using Star Wars Rebels audio. I just think it goes by too fast and is abrupt, so I’d really like to hear if people want it in, or suggestions and ideas on how to improve it.

I’m actually the editor of that scene on vimeo 😃 - nice to see someone taking it and running with it! I’d love to see your edit when you’re done! sounds good

Here’s a link to the clip on Vimeo for reference: https://vimeo.com/183048045

Here is another test scene with Darth Vader, there was a huge sequence with 4-5 frames of dirt covering 1/3 frame, and it seems to skip around the 26 second mark, along with some ghosting on the right hand side:

Video Clip:

Again, we don’t have a timetable, or release schedule for any of these clips, they are just tests.

A super clean version of this would be really cool to insert into a Rogue One edit. 😃

The SKB sequence is complete, as far as I’m concerned, so it’s ready for final render 😃

On another note, the final shot of the film has bothered me since my first viewing, since it weaves and bobs drunkenly. I scaled it 107% and stabilized it: https://vimeo.com/201330286

What do you think? I know it’s not strictly related to the edit. 😃

great job on this!

Maybe a different angle would work better? I think having the ship pointed directly at the planet is more intimidating… possibly breaking through the clouds with TIEs coming towards them.

Sir Ridley said:

So here’s my take on Finn’s line “They’ve done it”, redubbing it as “They’ve found us”, including animation on the mouth to make it bite together a bit on the “us” rather than the original open mouth “it”.

https://youtu.be/IVI_sDK6SXk

What do you think?

It’s noticeably an edit but it’s done pretty well. Not quite there but definitely a start.

That’s pretty great - I think some leveling tweaks and you’ve got it. The audio seems to dip a bit on the “found” and then back up…try a subtle tweak to level the audio and I think it’ll make a big difference.

I, personally, think Luke and Vader in the Force vision makes more sense than Zuvio or the Knights of Ren in the vision. Talk about distracting… As viewers, we still have no idea what their relevance is to her tuning in to the Force via the saber. To me, they are just loose ends, which actually adversely affect the movie’s standalone value… but of course I understand how characters like Luke and/or Vader may take some attention away from the “main” character…

I think adding Vader and Luke to Rey’s force vision could be quite cool if done right. I think that was their golden opportunity to actually have Luke and Vader in TFA… something to think about for your edit. Maybe something subtle like this:

I think I am alone, but the Choking on your ambitions line is growing on me.

“Be careful not to choke on your *aspirations(not ‘ambitions’), Director” – hence, the breathing pun… Aspiration: (1) a hope or ambition of achieving something (2) the action or process of drawing breath.

Although I don’t feel like the line is a grand slam, I personally am not bothered by it.

Maybe faneditors can try something more subtle…

An Idea:
-The main crawl’s music will be “Main Title”, Take 18.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzsoNlzHUsQ)
[In the beginning part, you can hear a cresendo]
Since of that cresendo, you can both mix the title card and crawl together.
And for the title card, it can be one of jack’s mockups.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qt3OVPpjAs)

I’m onboard for a title card tweak. Maybe something simple like this… Untitled-1.jpg

I would defo edit the opening.

Remove the jumping planet to planet and titles.

It definitely needs the star wars fanfare and crawl.

Remove the mind reading monster.

Corny jokes removed.

3po r2 cameo removed.

Darth vader choke, didn’t need to show his fingers. And definitely remove the “choking on your ambitions” line that was cringe worthy.

Showing Leia’s face he back was enough.

Vader’s castle removed.

Vader scene(s) removed.

All easter eggs removed.

Stardust references removed.

Soooo basically take out everything Star Wars-related and then add a crawl. Maybe we can replace the space battle with scenes from Red Tails. lol *idea for the ‘Ridiculous’ cut.
