most impressive, are you planning on releasing them as they are finished or all at once?

Thank you guys,

I will have to think on that one. All at once sounds logical right?

Its taking more time converting and rendering then it does to edit the darn things 👌

I think it could be good to release them as they’re done, but that’s because I’m just really looking forward to watching it, but ig it could also be good in case you want feedback on it for the future episodes or in case you want to do things to it

It’s going well. I’m just practising the best music cues and transitions for the first 2 arcs. That way when I start getting deep into the project, I can give it all the same consistent editing type.

Sorry for the lack of updates and I appreciate the enthusiasm 😃

Question for you guys: is everyone ok with MySpleen and Google Drive for retrieving these edits?

Because I’ve got Battle of Christophsis, Rising Malevolence, Landing at Point Rain and The Mandalore Plot basically ready to render after a few grammer checks 😃

Cant wait to See your work, especially Maul and s5 finale parts 💪🏽

One question, have you considered maybe inserting the classic "Long Time ago… “??

Which music will you use for the ending credit, the one from TCW or the original SW one? 😉

Google drive sounds great. How large are the video files approximately?

Brilliant. I will upload them to Google Drive then upload the complete package to Spleen when it’s all completed.

To answer some questions:

o Yes they will be in MP4
o They will be from 700mb to 1GB per episode (roughly)
o I have considered the ‘Long time ago…’ card however they are only really used for the movies, I consider these more like longer episodes of the series.
o The credit score will play out just like the original show too.

I apologise that the more radical ideas aren’t being implimented in this series.

I just feel that if people universally like the show as a whole, nothing much should change. Whereas if more radical changes are implemented, it begins to appeal to a slimmer audience, if that makes sense 😉

I just want to say that I for one is very glad that you don’t change anything radically since I like the show the way it is.

Thank you!

Also szopman, I’m looking forward to the Maul episodes too! What I’m doing is splitting up the season 4 arc with Asajj and Maul.

So the episode where Dathomir is destroyed will be put onto the end of the Nightsisters arc and the epiosdes where Savage finds and ressurects Maul will open up the Revenge arc.

This will make ‘Revenge’ 2 hours long and a hell of an episode 😄

That could qualify to be a movie format 😈😀

I’ve been looking for something like this for quite a while. I can’t wait to see your work! 😃

Hello!

I am once again set back. Just cant get the video quality at a good enough level but thats something I can get round soon enough.

Also I’m struggling to work out the timings for the crawl because sometimes the narrator has a whole lot to say, or like 20 secs of set up dialog. This makes it hard to work out how long the text should be on the screen for.

This could be solved by having 1 paragraph of text to set up the episode? Each edit can use the same template and the audience can jump into the action quicker? So yeah, just got to play around.

Thank you so much for doing this, Kanmedhurst. Now that the entire show has concluded, there are some terrific possibilities for encapsulating the best/most essential story arcs. I never started watching the show (…I know, I know - bad fan, bad!). But I am keenly interested in watching a well-crafted miniseries of series of films of it. Consider me one of those who is interested in seeing this.

And yes, Google Drive is perfect. How will we know when they’re available?

And thank you again!

Iron Phoenix that’s very kind.

When an episode is uploaded. I will update the list at the beginning of the thread, basically putting ‘COMPLETED’ next to the episode name.

Then when people PM me for links. They can ask for a specific episode or for all the episodes released at the time 😃

Also an update on the 2008 movie arc: I tried to edit an episode based on the battle of Christophsis but since the footage consisted of 3 standalone episodes, the plot comes off a bit jarring.

Plus we get a lot of fun material in the 2008 movie to introduce us to the show.

The only change I’ve made is I cut the Padme/Ziro the Hutt sub plot that they introduce in the last act of the film which slows things down (and is slightly cringe, sorry). This way I’ve kicked the end of the film up the arse and it now runs at 1hr 25 mins before credits.

Has anyone got any recommendations for the episode name?

Any reason why the malevolence arc is included over domino squad?

Preference in my honest opinion. Always had a soft spot for it.

I might rewatch the Domino arc for… research purposes and see what I can do. But if there any arcs you are not a fan of, they can be easily left out of your download since most of them are standalone arcs 😃

I don’t hate the malevolence arc or anything, but it’s mostly an inconsequential arc. Domino squad sets up key characters later in the show and has 99’s story, which is considered by the majority of the fanbase to be some of CW’s finest work. Personally, I would also include the Slavers arc and the Obi-Wan undercover arc because of the excellent character work, but those are more optional.

Yeah I believe the Domino Squad arc should be there in some form, mostly because they’re the earliest episodes fully centered on the clones and their character development. Besides this is where Echo and Fives are introduced, and we see how they transition from their graduation to their first mission to eventually becoming ARC Troopers. And it would tie finely with the Citadel and Umbara arcs.

Looking forward to watching the rest, though!

I agree, especially considering the importance of fives and echo later on

That’s a good point. I will definitely consider adding Domino Squad arc (which I’m assuming is S03Ep1, S01Ep5 and S03Ep2?)

As for your other recommendations. I think it’s best stick to the list I have right now because its got a tight story runnning throughout and I can’t risk adding too many character because they will introduce even more arcs and the mini-series and will just become… The series again I guess 😅
