Thank You so much for your work HAL. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed these edits.
More praise later, but for now, since I imagine you're working on v2 LOE, I noticed a sound problem with my setup when playing the 720p version. I don't have the other versions and so I can't confirm whether the issue is present in the others.
The odd sound, or lack thereof, occurs during the bridge fight on the Invisible Hand. There are a few spots during this sequence where it sounds like the lightsaber sounds didn't make it into the correct channels, they are barely audible as Obi Wan dices the last two droids. When viewing on my PC, the downmix to stereo made this less an issue. But when viewing on my HTPC surround setup, the missing sounds are apparent. I haven't seen this mentioned here, so I'm curious if anyone else has noticed this issue. I'm using OpenELEC to play the m4v into my 5.1 setup. The AAC track (1) plays as MULTI-IN and there is barely any surround activity at all...I can't even view the film with that track. The AC3 track (2) sounds normal to my ear, though during the bridge fight there are those several moments when it's almost as if the sound has been turned down on several channels. I compared the same sequence from the L8wrtr edit and the problem was not present in his AC3 mix.
I offer this not as criticism, but in an effort to help with the project.
As I said, love the edit. Love the breathing room that you've given to the films. I've watched back to back with L8wrtr edits and while I appreciate the storytelling there, the pacing leaves me breathless. Your edits are my preferred. Just watched LOE last night and I grinned at the ~28 min mark when I realized you had touched on all the essential plots and players to carry us through the film, and even cried a little at the end in appreciation of the care you've given to the characters and their future importance to the OT.
