So i was able to watch your edit. I do like the much more shorter film length, but i think on some scenes you could reintegrate some sources for a little more breathing and context e.g. last moment of fight between palps and mace. You establish anakin arriving without him flying to the scene (which is fine) but he standing besides maces last blow and out of the blue anakin interfering feels absurd (even though i think you tried to make him look impulsive? This didn’t worked for me).
On a technical hand, the only thing that really occurred to me were the audio transitions in ~60% of the time. Some examples:
- 0:37:46, before next scene and new soundtrack, there is starting another soundtrack from another scene for a brief moment
- 0:36:25/26, audio transition not fluent, kind of abrupt
- 01:04:46, same
- 01:27:55/56, same
Understood. The moment where Anakin kills Mace was a bit of a challenge, to be honest. I think I might be able to replace the shot of Anakin standing there with a shot of Palpatine. That might work in a future version of this edit.
As for the audio transitions, this movie went through more sound editing than the previous two. A lot of it is mainly a consequence of the dialogue and sound effects for this entry. I did try a few attempts to make the transitions less abrupt, but alas, I can only do so much with the material that I do have. I don’t have the soundtracks on me at the moment, so that isn’t an option for the time being. Although I might buy them in the future, since it sounds like I could use them for these edits.
