Didn’t someone once make a “patched” version of the DVD mix?
Just stop, dude. At least go to relevant thread.
Played by Bryce Dallas Howard? 😃
I hope not. I really don’t like her in anything I’ve seen her in.
I’d pick Rose Leslie, personally.

I don’t know why Disney is so allergic to the episode numbers for the films. You would think that would make it easier for someone to navigate these menus.
They do seem to be pretty good about putting them in chronological order on Disney+'s interface, though, instead of in alphabetical order. That’s nice to see.
For me it is similar to having the PT end with Anakin the hero, and then introduce him as Darth Vader in the next movie
That’s…exactly what I wanted the PT to do.
Well, one of two ways (the second being you end episode II presuming that he’s dead, then Vader is a mysterious masked figure in episode III about whom you don’t get answers until Empire).
PM me when it’s finished if you want me to make a DTS encode of it for you, Mala. (Still can’t do DTS-HD MA, sadly.)
Hmm, that makes sense. Sorry you’re having so much trouble with it. I do know that I remuxed it with PCM audio tracks for myself, but can’t remember which version I used…
EDIT: Disregard, I misread the thread title when responding. I don’t think I knew that Ady did an OOT ESB and not just the 1997 SE…
I think the topic title is interesting “the ending was very easy to predict.” Sure, all the clues were right out there in front of you to predict… but did you? I knew something was up the moment we saw him (the hair) but I wasn’t able to figure out what exactly until the film revealed itself. The closest I got was when Kylo finally sliced through him (my thought - did he die already and now he’s a force ghost?), but when the real trick was revealed it was definitely a “holy shit” moment. And of course that’s what it was, a magic trick, and like the best magic tricks it occurred in plain sight.
That’s fair. I like using CRF values personally, as I don’t mind varying file sizes as long as quality is kept consistent, and the slower the encoding, the smaller the file size with CRF values, so I tend to use the slowest preset with a CRF of about 17 or 18.
Yeah, I think the sweet spot is somewhere between your previous version and this one.
Maybe try experimenting a little with CRF encoding values instead of targeting a bitrate? Quality will be more consistent that way, but file sizes will vary some.
I can’t recommend a CRF value for h265 though, that’s out of my area of expertise. I’d suggest 18 for h264 with slower/slowest encoding settings, but I honestly have no idea how h265 behaves with encoding as I never really use it.
Waaaay overboard on the blue there, IMO. Reign that back some and I think you might have something there.
It’s an EW promo shot. They almost always look like crap compared to what we later see on screen.
I think Luke’s mere presence (as well as Luke intentionally riling Ben up with little gestures like wiping the dust off his shoulder) has Ben seeing red. He’s not thinking rationally, which is the same reason why he ignores Hux’s tactical advice. Luke used Kylo’s own emotions to his advantage.
Yep, exactly this.
Up until the lightsaber I honestly just thought that Luke cleaned himself up and came through the back door.
Yep, this. I knew something was up when the lightsaber came out, but I didn’t know what, and when the “what” was revealed I let out an internal “Holy shit.”
So no, I don’t think it was easy to predict.
I think 12-bit h265 has compatibility issues with tons of players. Best to stick with 10-bit IMO, which is widely accepted and still more efficient than 8-bit h264.
Who suggested the two films objectively clash with each other, or suggested that anyone who disagrees is doing so in bad faith?
The post that started this round of debate, maybe? At least, that’s 100% the read I had on it:
I applaud that article writer for acknowledging the obviousness of Abrams & Johnson’s clashing ideas, rather than trying to rationalize it away
Does anyone have any ideas for an alternate, non-gungan way to reveal Amidala’s queenship before this scene?
You mean instead of the shot of the ship landing (The one in the clip you just posted)? So, like just showing it parked in the forest or something?
No, the reveal that Padme is the Queen and not just a handmaiden.
Hair too, not just the beard.
Or PM the poster directly. Links aren’t allowed on the open forum.
I’d say Hondo’s almost a lock, but Ahsoka is doubtful.
It’s still Favreau’s baby more than Filoni’s, though, so he might outright veto the idea.
You…don’t have much experience doing effects work in After Effects, do you? It’s not as simple as you seem to think it is.
