This is great. I’ve watched it a couple of times now and haven’t spotted anything I would personally change.

Version 2.2 will be released today with current pending PM requests sent.

August 27, 2020: ver 2.2 released to fix a video cut error on Exegol when Ren takes the elevator down to see Palpatine. Also now released in 3 different filesizes in High Quality, Good Quality, and Tiny Encode Quality.

All video encodes begininning with ver 2.2 customized for the content with manually defined zones in the encoder command line to increase bitrate (and quality) in specific darker scenes, especially on Exegol. Even the tiny encode file is surprisingly decent for its filesize. Recommended quality to download is Good or High, depending on your bandwith.

File details:

High Quality 8.9 GB
Highest quality, should look nearly identical to the 60 GB prores master
Video: 1080p, H264, very slow, film preset, CRF 20, Zone CRF 10
Audio: AC3, 5.1 channel, 640 kbps (audio filesize 592 MB)

Good Quality 4.9 GB
Most will probably find the video quality to be excellent; the audio should be perceptually the same as the Bluray AC3 at this reduced filesize because of the variable bitrate
Video: 1080p, H264, very slow, film preset, CRF 22, Zone CRF 15
Audio: AAC-LE, 5.1 channel, VBR (audio filesize 350 MB)

Tiny Encode 1.5 GB
Intended for test screenings or smaller screens (phones, tablets, notebooks)
Decent but lower quality; small filesize!
Video: 720p, H264, very slow, CRF 24, Zone CRF 18
Audio: AAC-LE, 2 channel,192 kbps CBR (audio filesize 180 MB)

heil palpatine.

Thanks negspec13. Version 2.2 is being released today to fix a bad cut while Ren is on Exegol the first time. And with Klaud reinstated (lol just kidding about Klaud).

heil palpatine.

Fantastic, will grab the high quality and will let you know about anything that occurs to me.

Hello everyone, v2.3 will be released in the next few days with the updates below. If anyone has any last minute requests, please give your 2 cents. axlanian, if you want anything else tweaked let me know…

v2.3:

Improved audio levels for Knight’s of Ren voices so they can all be clearly heard now.

Remove Finn’s loud grunting during lightspeed skipping.

Finn yells “Rey” one less time somewhere in the movie (does it matter where?)

Stormtroopers do not sound like droids when they die: Refoleyed the stromtrooper on the speeder as he drives onto rocks and it is ramped up into the air. Refoleyed when a jet trooper is shot and lands on the ground. Refoleyed when another jet trooper flies out of control and crashes explosively into a rock formation. All done to remove the slapstick cartoon droid screams.

Removed Poe saying “we only have 8 hours left.”

Removed Poe exclaiming during the battle of Exegol, “they’re toast!”

When Rey looks to the suns, extended the shot of BB-8

Improved reverb sfx and audio level of Yoda’s voice during lightsaber burial

heil palpatine.

Hello everyone, I’ve had many requests for the updated edit. I should have the update ready soon. I transferred the project from a mac to a pc and I found there is more cleanup than anticipated (Premiere does not transfer projects perfectly). So I’m fixing audio transitions that went out of whack as well as some regrading that also did not transfer properly. Sorry for the delay. In addition to the above mentioned changes for 2.3, I am also enhancing the night Ach-to of this edit a bit more, darkening the sky. Will probably also add some forest mist to the CG Leia scene. I had considered removing it, but instead I’m going to see if I can obscure her CG face with some shadow and fog. Nothing too drastic. Thanks for your patience.

Below are the changes made to v2.3 which I consider the final version:

Improved audio levels for Knight’s of Ren voices

Removed Finn’s loud grunting during lightspeed skipping

Finn yells “Rey” one less time somewhere in the movie (does it matter where?)

On Pasaana, stormtroopers no longer sound like slapstick droids when they die, including the one with the exploding jetpack

Removed Poe saying “we only have 8 hours left”

Improved Ach-to night regrade

Darkened the flashback of young Luke and Leia, reduced/obscured footage of young CG Leia’s face

When Luke raises the X-Wing, the sky is now blue instead of gray/overcast

Removed Poe exclaiming during the battle of Exegol, “they’re toast!”

When Rey looks to the suns, extended the shot of BB-8

Improved reverb sfx and audio level of Yoda’s voice during lightsaber burial
