Wrong thread, I thought I was on TROS. I apologize and I just realized it and was gonna move it over to that.

All my life as I looked away to the future, to the horizon. Never in my mind did I know where I was, what I was doing.

Oh, no problem! Are you talking about the very end, though?

Hi Hal,
Would it be possible to cut down Finns over the top moment down when he’s escaping in the Tiefighter with Poe and shoots the turret… “did you see that, DID YOU SEE THAT!”… unfortunately we did 😬

Also maybe consider dropping the Han shoots behind at Mas castle battle without looking scene, I know its referenced somewhat in ROS but does it need to be here still and will it still be about in a future edit of ROS 🤔

But hope ultimatley you edit stays intact as is for v5 😉🤞

I have no problem with that moment and wouldn’t want to chip it away.

Hi Hal

I might be a bit late to this party but @ 24.32 mark, there’s a strange marker/artifact in the top left corner

Here’s a link to a screenshot to save you jumping through hoops:-

It’s hardly intrusive, but I thought I’d let you know?

PS it’s from the 31GB 1080p version…I can’t speak on whether it’s present in the smaller encodes?

Hmm, I have no idea what that’d be. My only guess is that when I darken the shot maybe it appears when it otherwise would have blended in. Is it just a frame or two?

Edit: nope, whole shot. Weird. I’ll make sure it’s not there this time; thank you!

Nope, it runs the entire length of the shot.

From (approx) 24:32 - 24:37

As soon as it cuts to the next shot, it’s gone.

It’s present in my ProRes master file. So, rather than going through several hoops to get the source fresh, I just did a crappy shape mask to copy a different portion of the frame. Looks seamless, and took hardly any time at all.

I like to call this laziness efficiency.

To offer a similar sentiment to Rogueleader above:-

‘Work smarter, not harder’

So glad you managed to fix it and it not be a big deal.

Just out of interest, do you know what it was or what caused it?

No idea.

Hi Hal

Is your final revised (free from any editing issues etc) V4 edition ready for download yet or are you still ironing out any issues?

Thanks for your all your work on it.

Super excited to watch it.

Author
Time

Not yet. Hopefully soon. I’ll let you all know.

Just starting exporting a second candidate after fixing several things wrong with the first. Mostly gaps between clips. I think it added a blank space whenever I deliberately had repeated a frame. After that point I will QC it, mux, and proceed. A few days at the absolute earliest. Whenever its done I will do TLJ and then finally be able to do anything with TROS by that point.

This one looks good, so the 1080p and DVD versions are up on Google Drive. The others will likely be tomorrow, and I’ll get torrents ready whenever I can, too.

Hey Hal, how did you QC this? Was just thinking as you’re moving things over, it might be easier to just run a difference overlay check with the previous edit versions, since only the frames you’ve fixed should show anything. Render it out, throw it on the tv to play as you’re casually working on something else. That way you’ll just see flashes if/when there’s an issue.
