-DOTF is awesome is a shame that only is present in 2 of 9 films.

It’s in three films, not two. The Darth Maul fight, Anakin going to rescue Shmi, and the final duel in ROTS.

Hal,

I’m gonna be working on some new tutorial videos over the next few days and probably goto my other house to upload them. Are there any early scenes you’d like to see of my cuts? I’ll try to do them at the sane time.

Not that I can think of, but thank you for offering!

I admit my main reason I really wanted DOTF to be in the film is because of its prominence in the late marketing, that left me thinking they were truly going to deliver on the “recovering the iconic scores of every prior film” only to be underwhelmed when it didn’t feature in the film.

Maybe playing the full song over the duel can result jarring. It would be awesome to have a mix of themes for the duel that include Rey’s, Kylo’s and DOTF.

It made me smile editing the arrival of the civilian fleet, using y’all’s audio clips. I’ve still got some tweaking to do before sharing a clip. It’s tough to balance because the score comes on loud and proud so the actual voices will be pretty quiet, with some poking through to make sure you notice that there are voices.

One thing that feels like it’s missing is a good female cry of “For Skywalker!” If anyone wants to send one in that’s decent, it would help.

And there’s definitely gonna be room for submissions right up until the final cut, so keep ‘em coming. I recorded one myself to throw in.

I was re-going through my TFA edit, and I’m sure you could use a lot of those cockpit shots above Starkiller Base to help lengthen the despair before the fleet arrives.

Hal, can’t wait to hear the “For Skywalker” moment!

Here’s what I think (hope?) is a refinement of the final shot with the Falcon flying off:

pw: fanedit

It’s very similar to the previous Option E, but looking at it fresh after a few days, I wanted to add a little lens flare to integrate it, adjust the final trajectory/orientation of the ship and its hyperspace path, as well as a few other minor tweaks like matching the grain in the shot. Hope this is close!

That’s a good idea. If Hal’s edit of TFA left out some cockpit shots, they’d probably be perfect to repurpose.

You could likely just re-use them, similar to how Rogue One re-used some shots (and also used some previously unused shots). Changing the context of the shots, getting rid of the Starkiller-specific lines, and doing away with the TFA music should make it feel fresh.

I’m continually impressed by the talent on here. This is great!

Hello editors, new to posting here, but have been fan-editing for a few years now on fanedit.org (mostly just workprints for my personal collection.) I am a huge fan of the Hal9000 Star Wars edits, they are definitive for me!

I have been watching this thread and just finished my own full trilogy edit. I am sure this is not the place to post but this is the thread I have been reading so I thought it was right to share here.

One thing that I haven’t noticed anyone mention but seems ok with the amount of changes being discussed:
I moved the moment of Ben reviving Rey to BEFORE she beats Palps. I am sure everyone here can take this idea and make it better, if it works at all.

Again, I have nothing but admiration for what everyone is contributing! I know when this is all done, the result of the group effort will be amazing.

This right here is Absolutely brilliant. his death feels more appropriate, it adds more weight to the climax, you can add leia’s voice as well as her ghost and Even bens ghost to the confrontation. I think there needs to be some edits of Palpatine laughing or reacting but otherwise great idea, and maybe put the voices of all the Jedi to when she’s reflecting the lighting

Poppasketti, that looks great to me!

I wouldn’t feel great about reusing fighter pilot shots from TFA, but who knows, we’ll see.

Hal, I’ll probably be sending a line sometime this week, I can’t wait to see a clip of it! 😄

As for Poppasketti, that clip looks great! Could we possibly see something built more off option A? I loved the flght path of that one and I think it would be better if the jump to hyperspace is as far out of atmosphere as possible.

Edit:

Here’s a thought!
Could you try to do something about the Lars homestead in the foreground? It sort of throws the scale off as the Falcon flies really close to it overhead and looks too small. I would suggest to shrink it or erase it completely.

I really like it. I was worried it would be cheesy, but the indistinct comm chatter really helps sell that there are people behind these ships.

I was able to watch with the edited link above. I like the idea, but just listening on my computer without headphones most of the comm chatter is hard to make out over the swelling music. Perhaps you could tweak the audio slightly to make the dialogue a little more audible. However if it is an artistic choice, I think you’ve met your goal. It definitely helps sell more there are thousands of beings manning these ships regardless.

No, it was just an error.

Hal you’ve given the scene it’s soul.

Fixed the link. It’s a call to make about how prominent to make the voices. If they’re mostly loud and clear it does sound cheesy, but if there’s a lot of chatter with just a few standing out I think it works a lot better. None of us are professional voice actors, after all.

Sounds great! I loved hearing whoever did the Mon Calamari impression by the way.

One quibble, if you’re removing the planet-destroying capabilities of the ship, shouldn’t you try to remove the line “every one we knock out is a planet saved”?

It has promise. I really like the ‘For Skywalker’ bits. It is a bit hard to make out what’s going on at first though, perhaps it would be better if a couple of the lines came through louder and clearer along with the more random chatter. It might also be worth muting Poe’s final ‘look at this’ to make room for the new lines. I really like the final bit of ‘standing by’ right before Lando’s laugh since it sounds like it’s coming from a radio, the voices could definitely use more distortion along those lines.

What a grand and intoxicating innocence. How could you be so naive? There is no escape. Come, lay down your weapons. It is not too late for my mercy.

I agree, I’ll see about boosting the volume for a couple at the start. And I don’t want to distort all of them, but some could go further. Lando’s voice sounds super clear so I think the voices don’t need to be so modulated that it’s harder to hear them. But yeah I’ll keep tinkering with this.

Would you mind if I mixed this part for you? I do audio (not a video guy like most of you), so I could get the voices to sound more like the chatter Poe’s hearing in the beginning part of the scene. I wouldn’t have a problem getting them to sit on top of the music and spreading them out so they don’t sound like they’re sat right on top of each other.

Just as a show of what I can do, I’m currently working on giving the Knights of Ren voices, here’s my first attempt at recreating their vocal sound based off the grunts when Ben kills them. (Once we’ve pinned down the lines we want, we’ll need three other voices to join mine for this project if anyone’s interested!)

Right on! That would be a great way to make it work, although I worry aboout the force ghost crowd growing LOL
