I figured out the problem, I had to redo the URL to the site. Works perfectly now.

I’ve watched the previous version of this edit, and although there’s a lot to like I don’t think the Scarif scenes work very well as a high-octane ‘prologue’ to the film. I think the problem comes down to the sequence being too long to avoid getting bogged down in a battle on multiple fronts.

So my suggestions:

Keep the ‘A Long Time Ago’ text before the Scarif scene, but lose the Solo-esque text. All the description we need comes in the crawl.

Keep the battle focused on only the ships above the shield - it would be simple to just cut the ships that got through and imply that the shield closed successfully before anything got through. It would also help to edit this footage for legibility, for example showing the massive TIE assault then immediately cut to Red 5 being overwhelmed, and showing the ships taking out the Star Destroyer’s shields and then cutting to the Y-wings knocking out its power.

For the end of the Scarif sequence, it feels strange to simply cut from the ship going to hyperspace to the opening crawl, since it implies that they made a clean getaway. There’s no ‘hook’ to draw the audience into asking what happens next. It also makes the Empire seem weak for getting completely bested in this battle. For this I think the way to end it is to keep Vader’s assault on the Rebel fleet as well as his boarding of the flagship. This way we introduce the plans as a physical item and hint at what they contain (due to the outline of the Death Star - I think it’s a mistake to show the real Death Star this early anyway). End the scene on the shot of Vader watching the fleeing Tantive IV, since even though it’s somewhat of a continuity issue with the next scene it establishes that Vader is personally hunting this ship. In fact, if you wanted to avoid this issue it would be simple to cut some of Leia’s expository bluffing and have Vader cut to the chase:
‘Darth Vader. Only you could be so bold. The Imperial Senate will not sit still for this.’
‘Don’t act so surprised your highness, you weren’t on any mercy mission this time.’
‘I’m a member of the Imperial Senate…’
‘You are part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor. Take her away!’

Leia’s strategy should merely be to to use her influence as a senator to dissuade Vader since she knows a bluff is useless.

I think moving the Vader lightsaber action back to the prologue amps up the suspense when the ship is boarded in the next scene, and it’s a bit of a rug pull when Vader holds back and lets his troops do the work.

Anyway, just my 2 (or 20) cents.

Thanks for the feedback! always appreciated!

So my reasoning for working Vader into the intro of ANH has a few tiers. First, the ‘attach the end of RO with the beginning of ANH’ edits have been done to DEATH. and are all pretty much the same. I wanted to do something different in original with my edit - more of an interweaving approach rather than glue them together. I also did not want to introduce Vader in the prologue. Him letting the Rebels get away didn’t work for me. In this edit, yes, they close the door on him… and he comes in another door and chokes out their commander. 😃 The prologue is meant just to show the battle and the rebels acquiring the plans. It introduces us to the conflict in the galaxy… no main characters… just Rebels vs. the Empire. It ends with a Rebel victory…which is perfect (IMO) leading into the ANH crawl. It’s not meant to be a cliffhanger… just an introduction.

I also did not want to include the plans as a hard copy the Rebels play Hot Potato with… in this edit, it was a transmission as we hear Radus say (and Vader later) - we can assume Leia then put it onto a hard copy ‘disc’ in order to store in the droids. Hope this clears up my intent! and i hope you enjoyed it!

Rogue One ending with a hard copy of the plans is one of the most annoying things about watching that film back-to-back with ANH, and I love that this edit fixes that inconsistency.

And I love the haunting glimpse of the Death Star that we get during the prologue. It gives a feeling like, “holy shit, the heroes are going to have to deal with THAT thing later?!”

Cool! Do you have any plans to submit this edit to IFDB?

i submitted my last edit ‘The Last Jedi Clean cut’ (which was a major undertaking) to FE.org and they never got back to me, so i don’t know if i’ll be submitting this anywhere other than just providing it to people who are interested

ok, so there is a 2.0 for anyone interested. For those who already downloaded, please download a new updated copy. I rearranged the Falcon ‘maneuver’ clips (there are 3 short clips and the new order works better - more dynamic) and added a new shot of the Falcon escaping the Star Destroyer right before the hyperspace jump.

so many uploads in a short time…
maybe you should take more time for your edit to change some things.
i don´t be lucky for download one movie 3 times for a small change.
no offense at your work,but take more time for discusion and planing.upload more short clips for comments.
i´m afraid this would´n be the final version.
but thanks for your link.
will watch this soon and give feedback.
again,no offense and i will not be rude.only my pov.
thanks

lol I’m a bit of a perfectionist (and I move fast, which isn’t the best combo), so when I go back and watch, I’m always looking for ways to improve. In this case, I saw another last minute opportunity for improvement. I don’t think there will be any more changes on this one unless somebody spots a mistake I didn’t see. Of course, I don’t force anyone to download or re-download my edits, so there is no pressure. I created the site to make it easier for people to stay updated, so hopefully nobody feels inconvenienced by my process… I do this for the community, so bottom line, I hope you guys enjoy

ok,i have take a look in this.
i think the r1 stuff is to much.too much dialog and to much actors.that should be shortend less than 5min.
you can cut this so the transmission don´t will be break (bevor the shield is closed) and the battle is only for defent the escape of the tantive.
the qulity at begin this scene (yavin) is in very bad shape.
in the movie are some jumps like one missing frame.not much.
the escape from tatooine is great but i don´t like your maneuver agains the star destroyer.
why he should fly behind them and then come back in front?
why he don´t go directly in hyperspace and take the risk to shot down?not logical for a smuggler…
so far,you do a good job.you´re a talented men.you should try to restore the deletet scenes…😃
thanks for the link.

Thanks for your feeedback! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I’m not sure why you think the Yavin scenes look like they’re in “bad shape” but the entire prologue is from the same source, so quality is consistent throughout the prologue. I am, however, actually rebuilding the prologue from a better source to get better resolution (this source was upscaled 720 - I’m rebuilding with a 1080 source now - coming soon).

Sorry you didn’t like the Falcon maneuver - I much prefer it over the original, where our favorite smuggler flies directly in front of the Star Destroyer and let’s it shoot at him immediately following his “i know a few maneuvers” whomp whomp

thanks for the feedback and compliments!

This edit is amazing. It isn’t my go-to version, but I still like it. I only have 2 major problems:

-The new Falcon “manuever” clips completely butcher the music. You need to somehow extend the shot of the Falcon approaching the Star Destroyers, and remove the added shot right before the jump to light speed.

-You should put the “didn’t we just leave this party” scene in between the two halves of the duel, to remove Ben and Vader suddenly teleporting to a completely different area.

That’s weird you felt the music was butchered because I actually patched the soundtrack so there wouldn’t be any breaks - all i did was add sound fx. I worked and reworked these clips… it was tough but this is what i ended up with as working best.

For the duel, I had to put the break there for pacing… i think we can safely assume they are moving as they are fighting… I dont see it as a completely different area - I think we just feel that way because we’ve seen the complete original of SC.38 and ANH already. Think of this as if you’ve never seen it before and it just feels like they moved as they fought and then a door opened. 😃

Hi, this edit sounds incredible! I was googling for a version with the reimagined sc38 added but this appears to have gone WAY beyond that!
‘can’t find a download link though!? can you send it to me please?

Awesome edit my man! Yours is more thought out than mine was! I think I rushed mine because I have another project I’m excited to do. I’m just going to tell people to watch yours…
