You have the bridge that was added to the 2001 dvd, Just after the queen leaves back from Naboo following the shot of the palace. The Original theatrical didn’t have the shot the cgi bridge to the left where the river is. Also certain shots of the Podrace sequences look soft and I can understand you taking the route you did but maybe you didn’t know. Being you want to make this a HD Preservation, the digital movie collection has the original podrace sequence in full hd . So you can have that one crowd shot on and Watto yelling Subulba in HD and not a upscale. Also what kind of audio did you use out of curiosity. There’s nothing bad about it I was just curious if you went with the DTS track that’s available ?

I didn’t use the DTS track, I just used the audio from Schorman’s HDTV Preservation and adywan’s DVD. I’m probably going to make another version with that, and the HD podrace (if I can get it, because I don’t have the Digital Collection or any money to get it lol) and fixed bridge. I didn’t know the bridge was a thing, so I didn’t even make any change from the HDTV.

It’s not easy to keep up with Lucas’s changes. Thanks for attempting this SparkySywar and hooking us up with links. Theres great videos on all the changes made you can watch on youtube to get you up to speed on this if need be. I noticed that when Subulba insults Anikan before the race in theatres the subtitles say “Skywalker” ater he says “You’re bantha fodder!” even though it doesn’t sound like he says it.

I think most hate CGI yoda and this fixes that in HD 😃 and is better than a “Good Enough” attempt for me.
