Dom's (Possibly) Useful TROS Edit (WIP)
Time

Here’s the general update, since people are asking. Yes there was a workprint, but there’ve been so many changes since then that I’ve taken it down for now. There will be a new workprint eventually. I said I was going to send one out a few months ago but had second thoughts. Part of my dilemma at this point is how long I’m willing to wait for elements that are being made for Hal’s edit to be ready. I know in the meantime some of these things have been finished, and I plan to add them and potentially do another workprint then. But in the meantime I am busy with the holidays and finishing up a V2 of my ROTS edit.

Thanks for your patience everyone!

That’s understandable. Take care and happy holidays. I’ll certainly check out your next workprint when the time comes. 🙂

Is it possible that VFX can be done to remove it hanging from her belt in the shot where she runs to grab the Jedi texts during the Resistance briefing?

We’ve already tried everything there. A crop cuts too much off. VFX would be too large of a task.

If it were up to me, I’d just remove that entire brief scene of Rey running up to the chest with the books in it. So she runs away in the middle of the Resistance meeting only to return with the books (still makes sense). Plus, Merry has a weird line in the background of that brief scene. Something like, “There were always whispers of his hunger to cheat death.” Most people didn’t know of Palpy’s Sith origin in the Empire, so it’s a strange line to say the least.

Great idea for a compromise, Jar Jar! With the name of a character as reviled by the Star Wars community as can be, that is certainly something I don’t think anyone in-universe would even dream of saying! ^^;

“‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’ Director Wants His Original 3-Hour Cut Released: ‘Put Peeves Back in’”

Should we get #ReleaseTheColumbusCut trending, everyone? 😏

And JJ, I must applaud your efforts on removing the green screen from the “Dudley’s Redemption” deleted scene. Hopefully, there will come a time when the rest of the noticeable green screen layouts will be adequately erased from the picture, but this is a huge step forward! I will most certainly be using this, with a touch of my own colour correction, for when I decide to pursue a two-in-one condensed version of DH someday. 😃

I had not been in this thread for quite a while, and I am sorry to hear about any health issues and would like to wish you the best.

Hal thank you! Luckily I’m slowly bouncing back from severe pneumonia (and pulmonary embolism) and tests came back negative for cancer. So I’m doing much better.

Does this mean you’re foregoing your planned retirement from fan editing?

No, or at least not unless something changes on MR’s end. His computer is kaput and he expressed a desire to retain a few things for his own fan edit. And while that moment is cool and insanely well done, it doesn’t bear in any of the other changes and is okay not to get.

Well, shit, Hal! It’s been five months now and MR has been shit out of luck since then. I have no idea what’s going on with him now, but I hope his holidays go along as smoothly as they can in his current situation. 😧

How are the VFX coming along? I believe it’s Rey’s eyes and Anakin’s saber that’s left. Unless I’m forgetting something else. I promise I’ll be patient.

Well, the Phantom Four by jonh still needs an upgrade. 🙃

Wasn’t that one side shot of Anakin already upgraded back in May?

I know, but I wonder if he’s been able to work on something else. 😃

I didn’t mean to derail, my intention in posting all of what I said was that I think what we have locked for v2 now is a significant improvement over the original while still residing within what was ultimately decided for the film. My two cents is that a lot of these other ideas on Palpatine’s plan have their merits, but may belong in a Starlight/Rekindled branch of this project.

Poppa should get on that, actually. See what he can do with the material at his disposal.

That’s what I like about Hal’s edits: they don’t deviate too much from the original film, they mostly seek to enhance what’s already there.

“Truer to the filmmakers’ intentions?” 🤨

Don’t mean to speak for JarJar but I don’t really understand the confusion here.

What were J.J.'s intentions for TFA exactly?

Hal 9000 said:

Again, I do like this idea and wish it could be fully realized without seams. But by this point my TFA edit is a diet version of Nev’s Starlight, and my TLJ edit is a diet version of poppasketti’s Rekindled, so I wonder what this edit will end up a diet version of??

I don’t see them as Diet Hal, without your hard work we wouldn’t have half of what we have. I haven’t been around the forums as long as a lot of you but have seen enough to know that almost all editors take inspiration from your edits and even use them as their main to work off.

As for TROS this seems to be the fan bases main thread.

Neither do I. In fact, I’m planning on continuing to use Restructured because it’s truer to the original filmmakers intentions.

I’ve been hoping that Warner Bros would do something like this, or even better, release even more deleted scenes that people haven’t seen yet, while also putting a little money into the unfinished VFX. You’d be spending even less money than over $50 million on reconstructing Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League. But, it seems like they’re not going to do anything special like that to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Philosopher’s Stone.

A man can dream, though. A man can dream. 😔
