Hi, could I get a link? I have seen a few attempts to integrate the SC38 footage and your seems the best so far!

More is less really. From the link in your description, I would say the first shot of Vader (that awkward up angle) could go. It’s more mysterious and darkly elegant to have Vader just calmly appear in the distance.

I would also cut or hid Obi-Wan hitting that wall as it looks pretty bad.

Otherwise, great work cutting it down!

It’s not done yet, though hopefully it will be soon.

Thanks I liked it too but it’s too wonky.

I’ve always liked the idea of using a cross-fade after the Alderaan explosion rather than a straight-cut to emphasize the relationship between the explosion and Obi-Wan’s reaction.

Yeah that’s a good idea. It was very abrupt.

This project is making progress. Here’s a link to a rough clip of the Death Star destruction sequence from A New Hope Enhanced Edition: https://streamable.com/xavx4z

It’s rough, and not all the foley is finished, but the changes to this clip are below:

Color corrected X-Wing thrusters from pink to red
When Vader’s TIE-Fighter spins out of control added shake and rattle
Added a shot of the two X-Wings splitting off and heading toward Yavin
Added Yavin into the composition for the Death Star explosion, camera slowly zooms in toward the debris

Pretty good! The only thing I have a problem with is the shaking effect on Vader’s ship, it looks way too fake. Other than that, good job!

Did you plan to put the rouge one vader scene in your edit?

StarkillerAG, thanks for the feedback. I can tweak the shake for sure. I just don’t want it to look like George Lucas spun the camera around like Star Trek not so special tv FX.

Skybatman, no I don’t plan on using footage from Rogue One except maybe for anything they may have lifted directly from the OT such as firing up the Death Star. The idea of this edit is enhancing or replacing the existing scenes of ANH and really not to add new ones.

I know, but the shake effect looks even faker. No offense, but I definitely think you should scrap it.

I’ll put a completely different shake effect on it and see what you think.

I tried to see the Alderaan destruction video, but YouTube said it was privatized.

Updated the changelist of this post. Considerable amount of new VFX added to Battle of Yavin.

what’s wrong with vader’s chest?

Oh yes I see. But since this is episode 4, wouldn’t it have the “right” chest box lights? Maybe he got an upgrade to breathe better in episode 5 & 6 though…

Also I wonder what the red button does?

Ok. Thanks for explaining. I don’t think I’ll be able to fix that. But fixing the lightsaber jumpcut has to be more feasible.

Oh okay, Adywan and Possessed did it for their edits so I just wondered if you would be able to do it as well. I was thinking about possibly using your edit as the base for mine.

Just to confirm you know what I mean, notice the difference on Vader’s chest on the Blu-Ray vs. Possessed’s edit


It’s great to hear that you’re fixing the lightsabers though!

Well I don’t know yet how to fix that jump cut. But I certainly would like to and it’s simpler as it’s just one scene as opposed to fixing Vader’s chest piece throughout the film.

I’ll make this deal with you G&G-Fan, when Adywan releases his edit in HD, I’ll consider incorporating limited parts of his edit. If he only releases a 1080 I’ll be very selective about what I would upscale.
