Its hard for me to really tell because it goes by so fast but is the shot of  the proton torpedoes going in the Death Star one of them?

Me, too, Ginge.  It's just the Death Star explosion.

The file I downloaded is 73.2 MB is size and 29 seconds in length.  The video begins with Vader's TIE spinning out of control, and ends with the DS explosion.

Is this the full clip Harmy?

The shots are:

1) The interior of Vader's cockpit de-pinked (something I plan to do for the whole sequence).

2) The shot of Falcon after "let's blow this thing and go home."

3) The fighters pulling away from the Death star - I'm particularly happy with this one - pull out your copies of v1.0 and compare them ;-)

4) The torpedos going in.

5) The explosion.

In 2.0, will you do anything with Luke's lightsaber in this scene to match all the other shots (which you say came from Adywan's version)? From looking at various sources like the Technidisc SWE, the Moth3r telecine, talking with mverta, etc., I think it's supposed to be a more saturated blue than it is in 1.0. I'm pretty sure that the color variation from shot to shot was almost negligible on the original prints, so even though no official transfer has every shot looking the same shade, I'd think it would be closer to how it looked in cinemas originally if it were the same shade of blue as all the other shots in DE 1.0.

It wasn't as easy as it looks either. In order to make it closer to the original and make it work with the original sabre, I had to completely rotoscope and recomposite not only the sabre but also the remote, which I had to reposition frame by frame, because when it was recomposited for the SE, no particular care was given to recreating the movement of the remote exactly as it was in the original.

All the new shots look great. The explosion... :O Awesome.

You mean the voice, right? That's all me, I don't know why it sounds so different in some instances. It was recorded over a period of several hours and I was using a really bad tiny microphone, so it's possible that it got changed depending on how far I was from it or whether I held it in the palm my hand of just freely.

Very interesting video! Nice to see how you actually do these amazing "despecializations".

have you considered fixing the sky in the revised speeder fly by in mos eisley after the soldier lets them go and before luke and obiwan get out?

i hate to ask again but it really does bother me.  even a person who hadn't seen the special editions would notice that and would ask why the sky had changed colors momentarily.

It doesn't seem like that hard of a fix just rotoscoping/overlaying the old version 1 sky over the version 2 sky.

I really like the version 2, and think it's the most improved shot, it's just that the sky is off color wise.

Thats a really cool "making of" video.  That would indeed be a really cool bonus DVD.

 Do you plan to have more of these?

It was  just a thought but the idea was to have a sort of DVD-Rom thing (you can't really do menus for AVCHD and expect it to be compatible) and the main feature would basically be the comparison galleries (like the ones at Picasa) and some of the slides would contain links to a more indepth look at the shot - either a video like this or just a side by side video comparison or maybe some pictures - like the mattes or scans used etc.

@005: Yeah, but it's the same in the 2004 version and I bet in the 97SE too, only there it's not visible because of the cropping.

Harmy-

I know you're working on a new version of Star Wars, do you have any plans to re-visit Empire or Jedi?  I apologize if this has already been asked and answered.
