General consensus is basically that 4K burning for playback on standalone players is not feasible at this time. Ripping 4K discs is possible though, and most 4K players should be able to play 4K MKV video files without issue (though check your player’s manual for supported video and audio formats).
Hilt replacement is always a problem, but I could get behind that if it could be done convincingly (though I’d hate to lose the Leia training flashback, it was one of my favorite little moments).
Yeah, that’s a fair analysis.
And this is reminding me of exactly why I jumped ship from Apple back to PC back when FCPX first came out. So many absurd hoops to just get the damn thing to work. You’d think almost a decade later they’d have ironed that shit out…
So what’s your point then?
Like I said, it’s been a thing since 1980!
you’re insane you actually like the scene, there’s no reason to keep Leia Poppins IMO.
Agreed, very well argued, but:
All y’all are forgetting her sensing Luke calling to her at the end of ESB… smh
She’s been implied to be Force sensitive since at least 1980.

It’s painfully obvious it was added because of the jarringly different musical style.
You really need to work on your tact when offering criticism, man.
Woo, happy dance!
I’ll post the 720p and full 34GB 1080p versions on MySpleen sometime later this week, same as I did for V2. (My job is considered “essential” and I can’t work from home, otherwise I’d just do it tonight.)
Yep, that’s another one of my problems with it.
I know. I was sarcastically saying that erasing every one of his posts because he didn’t get the reaction he wanted was “mature.”

Well, this was a mature response…
It’s not like anyone was saying the studios are in the right morally, we all agree it’s fucked up. We were just pointing out that it’s entirely legal and within their terms of service.
The Princess of Alderaan would have been such a better title…
Have you seen the Pruned Edition fan edit, and if so how does your edit compare?
It is, but only during the flashback scenes in TLJ showing what happened between him and Kylo.
Exactly - the only time he’s using the saber that’s supposed to be green, it is green, therefore there’s no problem.
I wholeheartedly support this.
He no like Ahsoka. (FFS = for fuck’s sake)
The problem with Mustafar is that it’s not really a scene. It’s just ‘Kylo goes to a place and finds a thing he was already looking for’. For it to earn a place, something has to happen that changes a character or plot element, otherwise it could just open with Kylo arriving at Exegol.
Exactly. This is why I said it almost convinced me…
Maybe the crawl tells how Kylo is trying to make good on his promise to end the Jedi and the Sith, and this has brought him to Mustafar to wipe out Sith cultists. When he finishes killing them, the ‘Find me’ can lead him to the wayfinder.
This would at least help give the scene some element of interest as Kylo may not have realized the wayfinder was here.
…but you might have actually convinced me.
Frankly, as soon as I saw the Darksaber, I knew we’d be getting live action Sabine, and that logically would mean we’d also likely be getting live action Ahsoka based on where both characters left off.
A little surprised Ahsoka is the one that we learned about first, but I guess that’s just because of who they cast.
But if Sabine doesn’t make an appearance, there better be a REALLY good reason Ahsoka’s there and she isn’t.
Ooh, I like that idea a lot. You almost just convinced me Mustafar should stay.
Yeah, same here! Sorry if my post came off as complaining, that wasn’t the intention at all.
I actually agree with AniStar on this one. I don’t like how the scene feels like a rehash of the conference room scene in SW77, and removing those lines does help cushion that.
Plus, the terms “conjuror” and “soothsayer” rub me the wrong way in SW for some reason. Though it’s entirely possible that’s just the actor’s delivery.
Ooh, I’m really glad you spotted that before I got home and started downloading, Nev! I’m close to my monthly download cap and “flash frames” like that are instantly noticeable to me. Definitely gonna sit back and wait for a fix to be uploaded.
It says right in the first paragraph that the content is subject to restrictions from the studio. Maybe they can’t permanently remove the content, but from just the snippet you shared I see nothing to prevent them from replacing the content with an “updated” version without informing you.
