Did you plan to take your edit, and make a fan edit with Clone Wars ?

If NFB doesn’t do this, then I absolutely will once NFB’s is complete.

I’m actually working on that, if you wanna check my thread:

😃

I actually already did that, but I applaud your efforts!

I guess I should probably be more open about this; I haven’t been working on this at all since April/May.

I’m still sending out links to the workprint, (just sent a few today actually) but it’s looking less likely than ever that I’ll ever go back and “finish it.” I use quotations because for the most part, I think I’ve more or less done what I wanted to do. But the audiovisual quality, as well as an array of minor issues, really hold it back for me from being final final. It’s like 720p stereo, and color graded by an overzealous 22 year old.

I don’t know. I’m too burnt out now to revisit it, even to just walk back one line of added dialogue or fix a 3PO line overlapping itself. And I don’t want to lose another day of access to my computer to export a higher quality file that I’ll end up wanting to tweak again and so on and so forth. The way this project was set up is also a nightmare in the first place. I’ve grown so much as an editor since I started, and this was pretty early on in that journey. I’ve basically been fighting my past self to even get the more recent stuff out.

So, forever “unfinished” unless I change my mind when Star Wars Ep X comes around. But that’s not a huge deal because it was basically done anyway. I just wish that it was available in a way people could use my choices for their own edits. I really do.

I want to thank Hal, snooker, Mithrandir, Artan42, Octorox, sade1212, RogueLeader, IlFaneditore, Delpheas, etc, etc for contributing a lot to this project and helping me out. (God, I’m leaving out so many rn) And thanks to basically anyone who watched any of the thousand versions or showed interest. This doesn’t exist without all your contributions to the fanediting community in the first place. Sorry I couldn’t keep loving Star Wars.

‘Finished finished’ or not, it’s still one of the best fan edits of the best SW film I’ve come across and comes the closest to what I would want to do if I had any actual editing skill. Thanks for doing it.

Just be be safe, can you send me a link to the most up to date version please. I have a bad habit of keeping a lot of versions of fanedits around and I don’t want to have missed the most complete version.

Otherwise, just take the break and see what happens next.

Lots of great moments, audio additions, cuts and edits in here. This take on Anakin does feel closer to the TCW version of Anakin.

Even if the edit remains unfinished - good job.

NFBisms, I want to thank you for your work, since I appreciated the edit so much I decided to use it as the foundation for my own ‘Revenge of the Sith’ / ‘Siege of Mandalore’ edit!

I’m sorry to hear that you might be shelving the project for good. I’ve had edits that I’ve set aside for years and then returned to when inspiration struck.

Either way, I’d love to check out Revenge of the Sith (The New Canon Cut). Your ideas sound great and your edit seems to be held in very high regard.

A link would be most appreciated!

The link I have doesn’t seem to work, could someone send me a link of the latest version?

So, forever “unfinished”

Just finished watching this yesterday, sad to hear it will remain “unfinished”. But even in it’s unfinished form it was a very enjoyable watch. Only thing i missed in this was Sheev’s 360-spin from sitting attack, the transition just seemed odd without it in there, but you’re working with what you have.
There were a few queues and cuts that seemed a little rough, but that might only be because I’m so used to watching the original.

I’m very sad to hear you are ceasing work on this, however I completely understand and respect your decision in it. Thank you very much for sharing all the hard work you had done on this up until this point, I really enjoyed what I saw!
