So my 4K HDR Edit is also in the wild now and circulating. The final file is 28GB.

As a fun bonus, I’ve recut the infamous Backstroke of the West Dub and added it into the relevant RoTS bits as a 3rd Audio Track. The first 2 are 5.1 Surround and Stereo respectively. Subtitles are also included in the muxed MKV file.

Again, if you email sheevsenate0505@gmail.com, you’ll get info for the relevant links. Thank you guys for your support on this project, and best of luck again with your own takes.

Congrats on getting your version finished. I imagine it will be a go to for a lot of folks.

EDIT: Didn’t want to double post.

New cips For Feedback, from version 0.0

Opening:
New Crawl (adapted from the final TCW announcer intro, coloured red to match the finale episodes and because I felt RotS should have always been red. The first title card appears after the crawl in the same font as “a long ago”. The music here and the sound overall as we transition from the crawl to the battle of yerbana are temporary until I can figure out what to replace the TCW audio with.

Battle of Mandalore into Battle over Coruscant:
I’m trying out different ways of starting off the two battles and getting from one to the next. Here’s one option.

Ahsoka senses Anakin’s Fall:

This is pretty straightforward. It is my attempt to show Ahsoka sensing Anakin’s fall as it is happening. Inspired by hedgesmfg

Order 66 - Extended:

Again, fairly straightforward. Ahsoka’s and Rex’s initial Order 66 segments intercut with the sequence in the film.

Extended Epilogue Rescored:

This is my current version of the ending, using the Labyrinth of Evil ending and TCW footage.

I just wanted to bump this thread again to let people know that I produced a mildly revised version of the ROTS/Siege edit I discussed here, tweaking both visual and audio transitions in minor ways, while still dealing with the limits of the source material (limited visual frames or cross audio between sources for some transitions, ect ect).

I’ve already shared release info for this on numerous reddits, and I have to confess, this project blew up so much that it’s led me to be involved in several more projects, ranging from extended 4K Episode I and II cuts, to an Extended Solo cut, to even an experimental attempt to upscale the Holiday Special (using 4K ANH FX shots and the EditDroid Broadcast tape master from a few years back).

I’ll still give out links via either an automated email reply (sheevsenate0505@gmail.com), or just share the google doc directly via PM with those who want it and message me. Again, this v2 is released in both 1080P SDR and 4K HDR, and used Hal/DrDre’s deleted scene footage, a 4K HDR upscale/recut of the 2005 Battle of Coruscant, and all native 4K HDR footage from the D+ releases of both the film and Siege itself.

Thanks again for everyone’s contributions. These projects have been a wild ride these past few months.

Are you still working on your edit Delpheas? Most other edits I’ve found use the theatrical cut of Revenge of the Sith. I think the NFBism’s New Canon Cut is the one of the best fanedits of Episode III and I am really curious to see how your addition of The Clone Wars final arc.

I am. Took a bit of a break while waiting for a more final version of NCC, only just recently got back to working on it. Then there us the additional hurdle that since I want to release on FanEdit.org I really want to wait the seadonn7 blu-ray release.

On the project development note, I will probably be splitting the edit into a Part I and Part II, as I would prefer to avoid a 3 1/2 to 4hr movie.

Are you still going with the Day 1, Day 2, etc type of edit? It might interesting to split it into episodes that are 45-60 minutes (each day).

I’m not sure. I have to see how it all feels, and the more I work on it the more I want this to feel like a climax to both the Clone Wars the Prequel Trilogy. So stylistically it can’t be too different.

So I to finally got around to updating the NCC footage to the most recent revision, which led to one or two changes in the scene order that I really like.

As an experiment I added Sidious’s “Day of the Sith” Voice Over to the Temple March and Kenobi’s warning to the Jedi to the credits.

I’ll go through it this next week and put together a a new version of the cutlist to share here.

Stylistically I am flirting with three things:

Two versions of the 3 1/2hr film:

  1. Having title cards throughout that “separate” the film into Days 1-5, with Day 5 being “Empire Day”

  2. No title cards, just normal flow.

Or

  1. Splitting the film into 2 parts around 1hr 50min each, with no title cards.
