Strange… I could have sworn there was like a 10 second clip of the space battle above Coruscant that wasn’t used in the movie. Maybe it was made for the theme park? Am I just going crazy?
Edit: NVM I found it. The only problem is that this video is really low res. Does anybody know where it comes from?

Better resolution but still only 720P. It’s also cut short. Should be suitable for implying a passage of time, however.

I’ll see what I can do with it, thank you!

In the meantime, here’s the other Shaak Ti death, I’ve reworked some of the audio but the sheer amount of blasters, lightsabers, and sounds that need to be added is astronomical so it shall remain unused. I mean I could just redo the shot from the theatrical cut so that the audio flows seemlessly, but that is a gigantic task I feel.

Switched up the Shaak Ti scene once more by moving the Grevious intro back again and splitting the hanger scene in half, implying that R2 takes time to find Palps, as well as trimming the Grevious walk to the window to move things along a bit faster.

do you use for your edit “making of” and “behind the scenes” parts too?

Oo that works quite well, although I’m not sure the Grievous walking to the window shot needs to be cut, and how about splitting it between the lightsaber retracting shot and the R2 hologram shot instead of earlier? I tried it and it seems quite fine

reylo?

R2

Unfortunately I’m not sure that works either. The infrared screen clearly shows Anakin and Obi-Wan sprinting through a hallway, but then the camera goes back and they’re still in the hangar bay.

If I may, I would recommend your alternate Shaak-Ti clip with the extra space battle shot before the scene. This way, nothing needs to be cut, and it follows the original script better.

I don’t know if the clip works, the camera work isn’t quite like anything in the film, and is a bit short. I’d like it if it was a bit longer but currently its not going to work, sorry.

Here’s the probably the final cut of the Shaak Ti scene, I’m happy with it unless anyone else has some suggestions on what else to do with it

Looking good Bobson, glad you’re back!

The clip works well in my opinion! Only problem I can see is that the alien says: “Two jedi have landed in the main hanger bay, we’re tracking them.” aren’t they still cutting down the droids at this point? Why do they need to be tracked through the ship if they aren’t running around like the hologram suggests?

On another note, how are your other projects going? I’m super hyped to see your Luke force ghost scene as well!

My homeworld is Australia so be wary of timezones!

I also noticed this and mentioned it earlier. That infrared screen shows them running through a hallway. The only problem is that I’m not sure what else to do about that.

I know you said that the clip wouldn’t work but I went ahead and made an example of it just to show you what I meant. The camera work is actually quite similar to the intro of the movie, but I know what you mean that it might not fit.

I think you should cut to Grievous after the shot of the battle droids falling to the ground, not before. As of now, it’s kind of an abrupt scene transition. I also agree with everyone else that the graphics on the console showing them running through a hallway need to be replaced with new graphics showing them in the hangar if you’re going to stick to this sequence.

Also did you get my PM by any chance?

I’m actually surprised at how well that works, although the cut out of the footage feels a little abrupt with the camera movement.

The footage is supposed to be much longer but since it’s from Star Tours 2 they only released a small portion of it digitally. Perhaps it could be cut even shorter to prevent that abruptness? But then it doesn’t work as well to imply a passage of time.

I had a go at putting the extended clip into the scene with some new bits at the start and end which make it work a lot better, but are dogshit quality. I’d love to see where these clips came from so I could use them in better condition.

Star Tours

Edit: Already found a better source, the link has been updated. Still not 100% perfect but it’s working I think

There’s a few shots and lines missing between them walking down the fuel tanks, and Anakin saying “No structue”. I’d love to use it in a workprint cut of the film however.

Here’s that missing stuff from the script for those interested

They run, EXPLOSIONS rattle the ship, and pipes continue to burst around them, spilling more fuel into the hallway. At the far end, SIX SUPER BATTLE DROIDS drop into the fuel. The SOUNDS OF SHIELD DOORS CLOSING AND LOCKING ECHO throughout the hallway. They pass several large power generators, which are topped with SPARKING excess power dischargers.
ANAKIN: They’re sealing this section off.
OBI-WAN: Six droids coming our way!
The last of the DOORS CAN BE HEARD CLOSING in the distance.
ANAKIN: Keep moving. There must be vents . . . This way.
They move along a wall. ANAKIN climbs up the side to a small vent. The fuel gets closer to the SPARKING dischargers.
OBI-WAN: We’ll never get through that. It’s too small!
They move toward a second vent. OBI-WAN is swimming in the fuel as it reaches to within a couple yards of the ceiling. ANAKIN feels along the ceiling and finds another smaller vent. He closes his eyes and tries to sense an opening, then he moves on. OBI-WAN is forced into hand-to-hand combat with one of the SUPER BATTLE DROIDS. It pulls the Jedi under the fuel. Just before he is about to drown, OBI-WAN disables the SUPER BATTLE DROID by pushing him into an exhaust pipe.
The fuel is up to the Jedi’s chins. ANAKIN finds a very, very small metal grate, then pounds on it until the tiny grate breaks loose.
ANAKIN: I found our escape vent.
OBI-WAN: Anakin, this is no time for jokes. We’re in serious trouble here.
ANAKIN: Only in your mind. My Master. Look, no structure. . . .
ANAKIN grabs the side of the tiny hole and gives it a big yank, ripping a large panel loose revealing a “man-sized” work shaft. They scramble through it as the DROIDS swim closer.

And also, here’s a (final?) cut of the Star Tours clip with some new SFX and score added to try and seemlessly cut 3 clips together

The second jump in quality is almost unnoticeable (probably since I’m on my phone). Although I can still see a jump in the first one. Honestly, I can probably look past that screen showing them in a hallway even though they’re in the hangar if it’s for the best.

I’ve gone ahead and fixed the monitor showing the Jedi in the hallway, where now it shows an alert that their ships are in the hanger. Hopefully this looks alright as I’ve never created an effect shot like this.

I’m also looking into shifting around the Seeds of the Rebellion scenes, in a similar way to Octorox’s “Happy Sanding” EpIII edit, but have not done anything definitive yet.

A test render has been done and uploaded, although it’s not the final cut as left 9 minutes of dead air at the end by accident. The correct runtime is about 2:29:15.

I’ll send it out to about 3 or 4 people for feedback so that I can fix anything that needs fixing, but it is uploaded now. I won’t be sending out mass links just yet, so ideally don’t bombard me me PMs.

I’ve found this deleted clip of Palpy’s shuttle on the approach to Coruscant from the 2nd trailer, but tried to slot it back into the film. It added a wipe as there is in the theatrical cut, but this is a lot faster, not sure if its too fast though, so I made one without the wipe. I think i prefer the wipe, but could it be better? (shorter, longer or delete the shot entirely?) There’s also no audio yet as I haven’t worked that out yet.
