OK, thanks for information. I hope someone will be able to upscale these scenes. It’s the only thing that I would like to change in your prequel edits.

Hello Hal,

Discovered your fan edits last week.
Just watched Ep. 1 with the wife, and it was most fun had with that film since was a child.

Want to do ep 2, but the google drive link have for that is saying download amount exceeded so won’t let me grab the file. Can you please PM me an alternative way to view that, and your version of ep 3 as well.

Also if don’t mind me asking here.
What are the big differences between your version of OT compared to adywan’s other then that you have ROTJ done?

Now that I’ve started watching through the Saga again, I figured I’d leave reviews on IFDB this round. Here’s a quick quote from my review regarding audio editing:

Audio editing, however, loses a point and gets a 9/10 for the music cue used during Anakin and Padmé’s first kiss. My wife, who is watching these edits with me and spends more time looking at her phone than the TV, said “oh, that was weird. It was obviously cut short.” Normally she can’t tell the difference between puppet Yoda and CGI Yoda, so for her to notice this audio edit means I have to take note of it 😉 Perhaps a slower, less dramatic piece of music could fill that moment and make the transition less jarring.

Just a thought - take it or leave it. TAS is still one of your most effective edits, in my opinion.

To be fair, the theatrical audio of this scene has a “music joke” which also feels like bad editing 😄

Hahaha!! I forgot about how the music does that - it’s been a while since I’ve seen the original cut. God, this movie has some terrible moments.

Yeah, that’s a moment I’ve hemmed and hawed over. The original music abruptly trails off like that, but it was in the context of an onscreen “joke.” I never found much better so I stuck with it. But, hey, that’s a fair point and I can’t disagree with you.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Literally just watched the V7 with the updated deleted scenes upscaling. Fantastic work! Such a huge improvement.

Speaking of that kiss scene, maybe I’m late for the party as V7 is out, but for V6 I’ve made my personal little tweak. It’s just added last few seoconds of Across the Stars from soundtrack, some play with original V6 audio (mainly much lower volume of course) and gentle transition. Nothing special and I’m sure that playing with channels you can get much better results.

Also, is V7 in sync with V6 so I could use my edited V6 audio with V7 picture?

Sync is unchanged, that’s right!

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Really like this subtle edit

Just watched the edit for the first time. I have to say it is the most effective and elegant edit of all of your works, Hal, in as much as as solving the most issues with the least amount of changes. The love story, which was ridiculous in the theatrical cut, is now perfectly serviceable, the pacing is much better, the political exposition is more clear. And as a bonus, you didn’t try to fix the “do everything button” on Padme’s ship. 😉

Just finished watching with my gf. Episode 1 wasn’t really salvageable, but oh man was this such a good edit. Felt like it was supposed to be like this all along. Great stuff!

Did anyone ever make a v5.5 that had the AV improvements of 6 but kept out things like Anakin’s perv stare?

Author
Time

Not that I can recall.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Is there anywhere that v5 is available aside from old torrents?

Author
Time

No, sorry. There’s no way I can store and host all the past versions.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Ah, I was hoping for maybe a tinyencode backlog. Oh well.

Fantastic fantastic work. Checked back in on this after awhile, the new AI upscaled footage is amazing. This movie working really makes the whole prequel trilogy work. Great stuff.

I may do a edit of the gladiator scene. There isnt much music at the start, so it could go pretty smoothly. That’s the only part of the movie that feels like it drags. Once the music kicks back in it feels ok, but when Obi-wan is just rolling around on the ground and stuff, feels very slow.
