I really like the ‘early morning’ aesthetic. It’s not as drastic, and more passable, than trying to make it look like night, and we do get that gradual progression of daylight setting in that implies the passage of time, not to mention it’s more visually pleasing.

Agree the morning light aesthetic added by NeverarGreat in his vid is very cool, just need to deepfake the already nice looking Leia vs Luke close up fight scene now for perfection. 😉

Might be too much work, but since Zorri wears a mask the whole time, we could redub her to fit whatever new narrative we wanted. For example, we could have her say Poe was just working as a spice runner undercover for the Republic, which is why Zorri is so pissed off at Poe (and would help alleviate some of the stereotype issues of making the Latino character a former drug runner.)

When Poe asks how long Kijimi has been like this, she could say not long after Crait or Skywalker. And when Poe starts getting down in the dumps about people losing hope, Zorri could tell him that these people have actually regained hope and are resisting.

And I don’t think the mask has to be perfect MR. Once we have puppets there, it’ll probably distract from any imperfections. Plus, it’s such a short shot anyway.

“Poe was just working as a spice runner undercover for the Republic, which is why Zorri is so pissed off at Poe” Brilliant idea RogueLeader as Poe previous spice running days feel so shoe horned in this films story.

As cool as the idea is, I think I will leave the sequence of the post-Jedha scene as-is. I’ll remove Cassian’s pre-instructions about killing Galen Erso, though, as I think that’s a fairly elegant change that works well.

This is the way, best to try and keep as close to the original were possible.

Noticed a line which might be worth removing @ 1:32:03 when the rebels are attacking Scarif and Krennic tells an officer to lock the base down the officer replies surpised and asks “and close the shield?” well er… Yeah 😑

was you able to check that line out Hal?

Harry Potter Extended Editions (Released)

First post! Just thought I’d drop a little message to show my support from this - I stumbled across it from Google after a little thought to myself about why there weren’t Directors Cuts of the Harry Potter films.

What’s been done so far sounds fantastic (a colour-corrected HBP in particular really interests me) - and I’d love for a release of 1-2 to be contained in this too (I own the extended Blu-rays, but a completed set would just be nice, no?). Plus, even though I adore Richard Harris, a deepfake to keep Dumbledore looking consistent throughout the films would be brilliant.

Thanks again for all your hard work - I’ve bookmarked this and will check in from time to time to see how this is going and hopefully engage with the community. 😃

If your looking for improved versions of the first two films you should check out Anjohans fanedits of those films here: https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Harry-Potter-and-the-Sorcerers-Stone-Revisited-Released/id/17069

Hes looking to release V2 of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone - Revisited which includes deepfakes but not of Dumbledore though.

These are amazing, definitely my go-to’s for the books from now on. The ambience and music from the films really do transform these into a truly magical experience.

Can’t wait for GOF!

Thanks a lot! I hope to get it done in February.

No rush my friend better to take your time and have an edit YOUR happy with 😀👍

It would be nice if that line can be removed, if possible. Hope Digmod could work some magic to remove it.

EDIT: If I find some time, I may try to see how it looks to cut it out and stitch the scene together … I think it’s just ambient sounds and not music, but I gotta check to remember.

Now its pointed out it can’t be unheard, it does seem tacked on and unnatural as he says it walking off…

I also very much like the original Rogue One and think its theatrically fine as was intended on release, but those deepfakes added to Hals V2 won me over from the original version, this can no longer be called a half-assed edit 😁

The less changes the better but still looking at TM2YC change list if there were to be any fixes to use:

  • Reordered opening act, which I felt was choppy in the original version. Now we do not return to older Jyn until it’s time for her to be rescued and time for her story to begin again. Death Star scene has also been brought forward to establish the threat, before we see how others are responding to that threat. I think these changes make things clearer.
    -Hals removal of Cassian in the beginning to better follow Jyn is understandable but that scene is a missed

  • Altered blue-milk shot so the camera pans with Lyra’s movement across the kitchen, instead of zooming right in on the milk, which I found to be distracting.
    -subtle yet effective

  • Removed distracting fan-service cameo from Dr. Evazan and Ponda Baba.
    -Already fixed in V2

Removed a few seconds of Bodi dithering too long over the ‘Rogue One’ call sign.
-Already fixed in V2

If more aggresive changes preferred then best off with TM2YC Rogue One edit.

Hmmm, it’s an odd thing. I’m not sure how any of this works, but I noticed the colors looked diferent back when I tested merging the shots to a full scene, even though the clips would look fine on playback.
The odd colors are most apparent during the first scene:

Here’s a fix test I did altering some settings, this might look better, though it still alters the colors a bit:

That green is noticable when looking at those images

Also, I have a huge list of fan edits (including this Mandalorian fix) that I will begin crafting/uploading as soon as my new computer arrives. I’ve got a Last Jedi edit that I haven’t been able to complete due to computer issues but it’s about halfway completed on my current computer. After that is finished, I’ll start work on my definitive edits for the rest of the series. Pumping out a Mando edit should be easy compared to these movies 😃

Look forward to seeing that Shamooks deepfake of Lukes in the full episode lavoyd.

V5 fixes graphical issues throughout the movie and also removed the little chess cameo.

Can I ask why the removal of the chess scene for V5? 🤔

Also for anyone getting V5 use the instructions in FAQ just need to wait awhile when at “Preparing to Download: Zipping 1 File” on Google Drive, can confirm it still works as recently used this method myself.
