Redo every wipe transition in the saga to have a solid edge rather than a feathered one.

Looks more natural now. Awesome.
Your avatar is really confusing me! 😄

I was searching Reddit for posts of mine in order to relist download links and came across something nearly a year old in which someone tore through this project’s changelist to demonstrate how the author is reactive, doesn’t understand the film’s meaning, and essentially making the edit to complain. (I get why fan edits of SW put a poor taste into the mouths of some, I really do. And I could imagine such a change log reading that way if that’s what one assumes going in. On the other hand, if the original film had shown the Force ghosts and we worked hard to paint them out, I’m sure the conversation would be the same but merely inverted.)
That’s awful Hal, I’m sorry you had to read all that. I don’t understand how someone wouldn’t notice the time and effort that goes into things like this. As someone who lacks pretty much any kind of motivation I know how disheartening listening to this kind of stuff can be.
Honestly I’m so done with people online in general as of recently I feel like I need to just mentally check out until things blow over down here. This is really the last thing I needed to hear today.
Rey Nobody? 🤨
The captain Hux line sounds perfect to me.
Since the conference scene is being brought up again, I mentioned this a couple times already, though quite some time ago… I still really feel that Pryde’s line about ‘conjuring star destroyers’ directly contradicts what this edit attempts to imply about the Final Order’s resources. If we want a hypothetical first time audience to believe these ships are a stashed remnant of the Empire, it seems weird not to cut it.
I’m not sure if this is an issue on my end or something wrong with the source, but I noticed in the AOTC preservation there seems to be this pixellated distortion effect in the bottom right corner of the frame for a few seconds around the time the characters react to Jango’s beheading.
Does anyone else have this going on with their file? I’d be interested to know…
If I see it pop up again anywhere else in the film I’ll post here.
That’s great Sherlock! However many people here, including myself, won’t be able to download the file at once with the free version of Mega, is there any way you could provide a link just for viewing as well?
Apologies if I missed anything in the thread about this, but was there ever any interest expressed in adding the ‘Finn and the villager’ back into the film?
JEDIT: Also updated the dice background for continuity with the rest of the scene.
Looking really good Nev! 😮
Just curious, any particular reason for changing the cropping of the shot? Seems a little more zoomed…
Also I wonder if the Falcon’s hull should be shadowed/tinted the slightest bit more, I feel like with this new background being somewhat darker the ship blends with the environment a tiny bit less. I dunno, just the first thing that came to mind.
I very much hope that emanswfan has been doing well these last few months, especially during such difficult times all around the world.
Just thought I’d interrupt the long stretch of silence to let them know that I am still eagerly awaiting any further news on the state of this project, and hoping that it hasn’t been completely forgotten! 😉
If you’re still struggling with computer issues mate, I’d be more than happy to give a little support your way to make things all the more easier, and I’m sure they’d be others who may be willing as well. 😃
I agree with RogueLeader, a little light reflection or glare or whatever would definitely hide the imperfections of the face.
That new clip is still absolutely fantastic though, certainly as close to perfect as it ever could be given the limitations.
I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what you come up with to replace the background!
Amazing, amazing stuff Nev! That arm reconstruction work is so seamless I had forgotten where the camera covered it up.
One thing I did notice that I should probably point out is that the little piece of metal that Han hangs the dice on seems to slide around quite a bit, might be a good idea to stabilise it in some way…
In regards to the face though, my suggestion for the simplest solution would probably be to just trim the clip and make do with a little bit of a loss of continuity between shots. Not sure how other people would feel about that though.
Has anyone here been successful in obtaining a link?
Anyway, uh… Can I have one too? 😃

Hey, just checking in again after a long time. Did you guys ever finish Rey’s crackly saber?
Just look 4 posts above you mate…
But short answer:
Hell yeah! I know what I’m spending my weekend doing now… 😉
That’s pretty amazing Nev, nice work! 👍
Bringing this scene to life now seems like much more of a possibility.
Though not sure what can be done about the temporarily obstructed elbow and face… 😕
I only just noticed today the drive link for these edits I got like 2 years ago is down, lol. Rather than unnecessarily bumping another thread, I thought I’d just ask for the new link here. Thanks Hal!
This has gotta be breaking the site’s rule about public links…
SC 38 should’ve just filmed this:
Never forget that Adywan predicted the creation of SC 38 back in 2009:
worst edit ideas?
An extended lightsaber fight with Obi-Wan and Vader replaced by CG so Obi-Wan can now do back-flips and they can both twirl their lightsabers for 5 minutes without making contact.
Somehow I feel like V4 worked a little better…
Can’t speak for everyone else though.
Just jumping in again to ask if Captain Faraday has managed to make any more progress with the Jedi voices scene… Are you still having those same issues mate? I can always take a look at it if you’re needing a second opinion on something.
