Thanks for the feedback! I think much of that will be automatically resolved once the full bitrate version comes out. I’m not sure much can be done about the mos eisley sequence, I don’t think the drop in quality is distractingly bad though. The awkward cut you mention is actually in the theatrical cut as I did nothing edit wise to that sequence. You are right that it is awkwardly cut though. I will have a look to see how they handled it in the SE and if possible just use it for that spot. I have a bad feeling that’s where the jabba scene is though but I don’t remember. If nothing else perhaps I can lovingly borrow audio from adywans revisited and just leave the video crossfade as it is. (Like I did for the audio cut during the sandpeople sequence)

And honestly telecine7 deserves at least as much credit as me. I cut it all together and did the editing and sound and the (very light) color work but he did all the rotoscoping and that just seems like a huge headache and he did a great job.

Do you plan on releasing this in another place (other than the spleen)? I don’t have access to MySpleen so that’d interest me, if it was going to happen.

I will probably do mega as well but problems in my personal life have ruined my desire to do anything like this for now

Oh. I’m so so sorry possessed. Don’t worry, just take care of yourself and personal life should always come first. Prioritize yourself. I really truly hope you’re doing fine and that everything will sort itself out for you. I’m here hoping for your best. Sorry I can’t do more, but I really hope everything turns out okay for you. Have a good one mate.

A couple of observations:
When Luke first gets the lightsaber from Obi-Wan, he turns it on and then there is a weird kind of halo or distortion around his arm. I assumed that is ws from the roto-scoping, but I am not 100% sure. I did not notice it elsewhere when sabers were used.

I will help possessed on that one, He used my EP IV beta 1.2 in which I did all of the Sabers and Blasters, The Luke Obi scene was not finished, the Halo was an attempt to erase the original sabers with painting out all of the frames with a clean plate. I did not want to roto on top of what was there because it would look too thick and silly. Also it was the intent to fix c3po from moving as there was a jump cut when Luke activated his saber. I never finished that scene… It was as is, as I ran out time to complete it. For the shots inside the falcon, I used a CC wire remover tool, that squeezed in the original sabers and roto-ed on top of that rendered sequence. If you stare at it, yes you can see a little warpiness to it, But if you kickback with a beer and popcorn. Most can not tell.

Side note: why are so many great faneditors banned from this site??

Can’t speak to other editors, but it’s not hard to figure out why Possessed was banned: https://originaltrilogy.com/post/id/1250806

and these posted on the same day by him too:

Banned Members thread: https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Banned-members/id/11884/page/50#1299157

Going on his user profile he had a history of posting shots at Jay before that as well.
 

And then he continued over at FE’s ‘OT Obsessed’ thread, still posting about it last week. Yet it seems the mods over there keep on top of it and continue to delete some of his toxic posts about this place and Jay.
 

There doesn’t seem to be many faneditors banned in all? Ortega and FGR were banned for straightforward rule breaks according to the Banned Members thread.

Tighten Up and then turn it all the way up to 11!
