Looking great, Is this edit going to be available in 1080 full HD
Really looking forward to seeing this.

I may actually do it in 4k…

Pay it no mind.

It looks fantastic! Loving the color correction and new blasters! I’m actually really excited for this edit. EDIT: I meant blasts and just saw that you might do it in 4K!!!

New Clip! and update…
as always this is still a very rough WIP.

Update about the future of this edit.
ESB’s main master will be Adywans 1997 SE reconstruction, as it shares the same color grade as ESB:R.
(changes will of course be reverted).
as for the return of the Jedi, I will be doing an all-new color grade, Adywan style.

Pay it no mind.

Awesome! Do you have a release date for A New hope

Other than R2’s Blue/Red light and Vader’s chest lights I would say just carry on what you are doing, the improvements with the colour and improved blast look awesome That Guy. Personally I can’t think of anything else, also looking forward to your audio mix 👍.

Would it be possible to add a battle droid to the sandcrawler, thought it would have been something Lucas would have added after he made the prequels.

Wouldn’t that be copying Adywan?

Pay it no mind.

Speaking of Adywan, one thing I would like is for you to upgrade the Death Star battle. It doesn’t have to be the same as Adywans’, but just something to spice it up a little.

Also, Can I get some requests or ideas?

Well, I’d selfishly enjoy having a 19SE-sourced set of all relevant shots with R2’s blue-red light ‘fixed’ so others (me) could steal.

Vader’s lights would be the other thing in that category.

The other things that strike me, be they from Adywan’s work or in general are:

  • The lack of holograms in ANH. I like Adywan’s holographic display at the rebel base during the Death Star assault.

  • Fixing jump cuts during lightsaber ignitions. Something like Adywan’s recent clip, too, to adjust the color and bring a sense of greater consistency to Luke’s saber without erasing the character of the original effects. Sort of made it look about the same as the new Ben v Vader effects look relative to the original version of them.

  • Removing the added rats to Mos Eisley, and recreating that shot of traffic from the original but using the SE version of the backdrop.

  • Any non-ringed explosion for Alderaan would be great to field

  • Replace the black 3PO “Death Star droid” with a K2-SO model instead

  • Replace the shot of the rebel fighters heading toward the Death Star, perhaps with something closer to the original version; the SE shot looks bad and the R2 droid’s panels stick out as obviously incorrect.

  • R2 with blue panels in space, like ESB and ROTJ (SE)

  • Luke with purple hair just during the medal ceremony

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I agree with removing the jump cuts, adding holograms, and giving Luke purple hair. It just sounds cool! You should also check out Aggelws’ Deviant Art page, as there is a lot of cool concepts on there, but you should give credit. I’ll post my other ideas later.

Not to sound like a tool but why purple hair during the ceremony?

I Love the k2 droid in the Death Star idea that would be a great link to rogue one! Chuck in a few death troopers too!

One idea would be in Hal’s semi-special edition that almost wasn’t he did something that was awesome, when they are in Kenobi’s home and he gives Luke his dad’s light saber he says “I wanted you to have this when you were old enough” instead of “Your father wanted you to have this when you were old enough”. I thought this was brilliant and something I had never even thought of but obviously makes perfect sense as Anakin didn’t know about Luke and would make more sense that Obi1 wanted him to have it.

I’m sure Hal wouldn’t mind you using it if you ask him.

Certainly, he’s got a link to all my stuff, including my lossless audio output for that project.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

the only thing that would be too hard to fix will be the death star droid because I barely know anything about 3D animation (Also can you specify the shot). The death star approach is plausible but probably will look kinda off.
also, Vader’s lights are two hard to pull off.

Pay it no mind.

Of course, just spitting ideas.

The shot for K2 is when Luke, Han, and Chewie are waiting for the elevator. You can see a bug-head 3PO droid walking by.

Yeah, that one would be IMPOSSIBLE, First I would need to rotoscope Han, Chewie, Luke as a separate layer.
Then remove the original droid THEN add in a 3D animated droid. If you can get me a droid animation I will try to do it.

Pay it no mind.
