Just do it yourself! It shouldn’t be hard if you know what you’re adding.

A lot of editing softwares need to be paid so they wouldn’t have watermarks. Even Filmora has watermarks until I have to fully pay it. I can’t do that with my family.

There are a lot of free editing programs or lite versions, that are worth looking into. For example I am using DaVinci Resolve for color grading, although I have iMovie, because DaVinci is just better, although it is free.

I’d kill to have Palpatine stuff be added (specifically that part you added in bbghost) into Hal9000’s cut of TFA

I have thought about getting around to doing my own standalone cuts of the sequels separate from my 3-in-1 edit, and things like that would definitely be added. I’ll let you know if that comes about!

Spitballing an idea here, try removing Poe’s mention of the dreadnought being a fleet killer. Yes, I understand that he’s making up excuses so Leia could let him continue attacking the dreadnought, but I think this is part of what adds to the misinterpretations that Poe was in the right for attacking the dreadnought… and letting the bombers die, even though they could’ve fled with the Resistance fleet.

I really want to end my TLJ edit by irising out on the group shot of the Resistance inside the Falcon, but the shot isn’t long enough to fit the music. It’s only a few seconds too short - I’ve seen people here extend shots using interpolation software, but I don’t have the technical know-how to do it myself; is there anyone who could give it a crack?

I flipped the shots of the Falcon in hyperspace and the group shot and the music lines up perfectly. You just need to add sound effects for the hyperspace shot.

Are there any edits where Darth Vader is heard breathing in Luke’s final flashback? Has it been done?

Just change the music. Or better yet, take DZ-330’s suggestion.

Here’s my video, my editing software doesn’t have the proper credits transition but the point is there:

Oh my god, I would never have thought that would work. But it does. Perfectly. Thanks!

It still feels a bit odd to jump from an interior to an exterior right back to the interior.

In The Director and the Jedi, there are some unused closeups of the droids and Chewie from that wideshot. Perhaps one of those shots could be used to pad out the timing. The shots are at 1:28:16 in the documentary.

You probably don’t recognize me because of the red arm.

If you have Adobe Premiere, you can use the the Rate Stretch Tool (and it wouldn’t be too noticeable if it’s only a few seconds you need to extend it out.)

Strongly agree.

If something can be done about his physical presence in TLJ, Snoke could be made into Palpatine’s Wizard of Oz -esque fakeout. In fact, just have him holographically flicker out when Kylo bisects him.

Is there any way around Finn trying to desert the Resistance in TLJ? I still want him to meet Rose.

Off the top of my head, I think it would be possible to make it sound like he’s exclusively trying to find and warn Rey, not actually leave permanently himself. But then his character arc over the movie wouldn’t have a clear starting point.

I actually had an idea a while ago that could be used to supplement that: Make it more about Rose’s journey. Basically, remove most of the instances of her optimistic theme music, have something more sinister play when she’s talking about how she hates Canto Bight, and remove the part where she releases the last Fathier and says “now it’s worth it.” Then when she talks about “not fighting what we hate” it would be like she’s only just figured it out. Although I’m not sure if that would quite work with the way she’s played.

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”
Well, are ya, punk?
