I knew I'd get raked over the coals, oh well. I don't see how I was being a jerk at all, he can just as easily reject my suggestions, it's not like I am forcing anything. Some people in here have an angry/hostile mentality.
Is there a thread yet for suggestions on ESB Revisited?
That actually isn't my list. That's tellans list for his edit. he was demonstrating how we are on a similar path edit wise.
i don't think anyone was having a go at you. It's just that i did say that a while back that i wasn't going to be taking any more suggestions because its so late in the edit now. The problem is that if more suggestions keep coming in i might see something i hadn't thought of and want to do it and the edit will never get finished.
I don't mind answering questions at all but please no more suggestions.
You said you got rid of all the floating spy droids in Mos Eisley, again I say why? Especially the one in the alley where C3PO and R2 are hiding behind that door. I don't see how that part was slap-sticky.
No, i have only removed the one where they stop the speeder at the checkpoint. this was an addition that served no purpose. Its only there for the one shot then disappears, whereas the one where they are looking for the droids sticks with the troopers which makes more sense . so i only removed the one that was seen first.
Also, you said you got rid of the bucking Ronto shot with the Jawa because it was outside the cantina, but it was altered by ILM and more buildings were added to the background to disguise the fact, you could disguise it more and still paint out or alter part of the Cantina looking part and keep the shot. Or you could paint out Luke's Landspeeder zooming by it, or both. I know some here hate all slapstick, because it makes they think it's all childish, but as my wife said when I was discussing this with her, sometimes things like this happens in real life, things bump into other things in bustling city life.
No, it was partly that reason but i got rid of that one mainly because it was plain stupid. It was a sign of things to come with the PT and was a totally different kind of humour than we see in the OT so it just had to go.
When Luke ignites the lightsaber in Kenobi's house, I see some king of cord or something in his sleeve under the sabe hilt? I see something there, it's a quick and fleeting thing as he moves the saber around, but maybe it's a bracelet or something. I just wondered if it was a cord like you painted out of the Kenobi saber later in the movie during the duel.
I didn't remove the cord from this scene because i just couldn't do it good enough. If you also look closely you can see the battery pack stitched to the inside of his sleeve.
OK, but I would have left it, but it's a personal choice, I personally liked the Rontos, and do we still see any other than far off ones? I meanone could argue that any CG creature was put there out of whimsy. Did you get rid the Ronto the guy has on a leash just as they pull up to the Cantina?
