From what I understand the standard tie was designed to only land in hanger bay racks so to stop troops deserting but in Moff Gideons case he has a modified tie able to land and take off without a hanger bay.

Having said that it seems tie fighters maybe able to land after all if you keep your eyes open in the future. 😉

Someone suggested cutting the light skipping thing and I don’t think this would be a bad idea.

Was me and yep its just not needed

The scene of Rey and Kylo fighting over the transport on Pasana, I think the wide shot needs to be altered to make them feel farther apart. The way this scene is paced makes it feel weird as to why Kylo doesn’t pursue them, or why Finn doesn’t try to shoot Kylo.

Exactly what I thought when I watched it why did’nt Kylo persue 🤔

Speaking of Pasana, a few other ideas:
Does Lando really need to be here? I felt the scene of Kylo commanding local troops to get there, and then a Stormtrooper being right there in the next shot felt so weird! I really think you could cut straight to Rey telling them Kylo knows they’re there, and then stealing the speeders.

The first order trooper did seem to pop up out of nowhere and as you discussed here makes more sense.

This might seem unnecessary, but I think it would be interesting to regrade Pasana to make it Jedha. I know it may seem unnecessary, but both planets were filmed at Wadi Rum, Jordan, and if Ochi hunted Jedi relics, it makes sense for him to go to a Jedi planet like Jedha. You could create a new shot of the planet with a big chunk blown out of it, maybe with a ring around it. Having a ring or debri field would make sense since the crew hides in an asteroid field immediately after leaving the planet. Maybe they hid in the asteroid field hoping the First Order would leave. It would help explain how the Knights of Ren knew where they were as well. Again, it may feel unnecessary but I think it would make the planet more interesting and give the location more history.

Sounds great but is that too much of an undertaking ?

After they wipe 3PO’s memory and they’re about to board the Star Destroyer, 3PO says something like, “Whoever this Chewie is were saving, this is madness!” This line feels lazy to me. I think it would be funnier if 3PO could have a line that played well off of the gang just rushing off the ship and blasting everyone in their path. Something that makes you think they’re gonna be sneaky or something, and then BLAST BLAST! I also think 3PO should not have his memory restored.

3PO got his memory back wa to which also do we NEED 3PO back at this point ?

I have no idea how to alter it at this point, but I think the whole Goonies-style “lining the dagger up with the Death Star ruins” feels so strange! Why would Sith loyalists make a brand new dagger with the coordinates of the wayfinder’s location in wreckage that could easily collapse an no longer match the outline of the dagger?

Hehe very true, at least we did’nt have Palpatine rip his robes off screaming HEY YOU GUUUUUYYYSSS!

When Han and Ben have their conversation, I think it would be interesting to overlap Han saying “Ben” with Leia saying “Ben”, to imply Leia is speaking to her son through Han.

Also Hans a memory/ghost here not a force ghost so when he touches his face somehow stop Bens hair fom moving with Hans touch also maybe add an echo or some distortion to Hans voice and blur image slightly to show hes a ghost/memory.

In my opinion, there is just not enough context to explain how or why Rey is Palpatine’s granddaughter. Palpatine had a son? It just feels super convoluted to me. If removing this idea altogether would be infeasible, I think Rey being created by Palpatine would make much more sense. Anakin was implied to have made by the Force as a reaction to Plagueis and Sidious’ growing power. Sidious said Plagueis had the power to create life. If this was true, and if all the Rule of Two Sith have been in fact one Sith, then Sidious would know this too. Maybe Rey was made by Palpatine to be the perfect vessel. She was supposed to be what Anakin failed to be.

Rey being another “The Chosen One” created by Palpatine and how we now understand the Rule of Two Sith would make sense here.Palpatine’s granddaughter will be explained later via comics/books at a later date no doubt.

But despite my problems with the film, I think there is hope in the fact that now we have the whole picture, all nine films. Pessimism isn’t in the spirit of fan editing, because we find ways to turn problems into solutions. If the long-term consensus of this film turns out to be rather poor, I do believe we can turn this film, and the whole saga, into a really spectacular series of fan edits. I’m really hopeful about the future of these films!

Me too, the force is stong with this one 😉

Star Wars: <strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> Redux Ideas thread - * <strong>SPOILERS</strong> *
Time

Spoilers Within
I managed to avoid all TV adverting and the internet theories/leaks and watched the teaser and first trailer once so went in with no pre conceptions and I walked out of the imax cinema for the most part enjoying what I watched.

Most of the dislikes for Rise of Skywalker at the moment seem to stem from not getting enough backstory for events and charactors witin its 2h22mins timeframe but no doubt all will be explained in time through books/comics/Tv shows ect.

I know I’ll be a minority but I liked what it had delivered with most of what it did right but heres a few fix ideas:

From what I interpreted it to be the reasoning behind the rule of two now is if the apprentice/chosen one is strong enough to kill Palpatine then Palpatine would then take their body and soul hence asking to “strike me down” also explains his quote “I am ALL Sith!” from past apprentice he possesed maybe. With that in mind when Rey did strike him down it would be good to show Palpatines yellow eyes fade from her when dying when he is losing her as a host. (host idea is similair to 1998s Fallen thinking about it).

Remove the lightspeed skipping thing the falcon does at the start of the film… 😬
Han Solo: Traveling through hyperspace ain’t like dusting crops, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly right through a star or bounce too close to a supernova and that’d end your trip real quick, wouldn’t it?

Less of Poes love interest side story with the helmet woman which never leads to anywere.

Less of what seems to be Landos daughter and first order deserter again charactor doesn’t lead anywere except for just adding a female Finn.

Cut R2D2 uploading yet another all important message he needs to deliver to the Princess.

not sure how to fix but Kylo landing a Tie on Exogal, Can’t those things only land in docking bay racks?

After first watch these stick to mind the most.

Episode 7 done a great job connecting all the charactors Mando has encountered thus far, but I wont go on about how good it all is thats what the general Mandalorian threads for 😊.

 

oops1

A continuity error I noticed which could be fixed in this episode was when Cara Dune covers here tattoo…

 
oops1

Then moments later we see her walking off with the Tattoo back on show 😬
 

Also maybe cut a few shots when the team gets attacked by the flying creatures, seriously how many times did they miss close range shots, I know it was dark but… really!

chapter 6 was another good episode with a nice cameo at the end 😉.
Although I did find that twi’lek girl annoying.

annoying

I don’t think we’ll get anymore strong episodes like 1-3 as they set the show though I see alot of people calling the rest of the episodes fillers but that just doesn’t give them justice they are all good with very little that needs fixing.

So far so good.😀👍

Recently saw episode 5…

… also the acting from the woman was a little weird, and the gunslinger kid was annoying.

I couldn’t put my finger on it but I completely agree with that odd chose for actors.
Should of gone with something more inline with the concept art:

Such a small quib with episode 4 here but after the AT-ST rises up on screen Mando and Cara Dune then outrun it as it chases them through the forest, any future edits may want to cut that chase scene out.

Four episodes in and I only got this small detail to say so far just shows how well made this show is. 😁

Star Wars: The Coaxium Heist (COMPLETED)
Time

All your edits seem on point but would you for v2 consider maybe some harder changes like ones found in CarstenJ.dk of Solo edit here:
https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Solo-A-Star-Wars-Edit-Released/id/65231/page/1

eg:

  • After crawl and planet pan open with Han a Quira escaping on speeder and rework the crawls text to fit.
  • Less in your face lucky dice shots
  • Add deleted scene where he gets demoted to the infantry
  • No Han getting the blaster from Becket.
  • Cut most of Han speaking wookie.
  • When formerly introduced to Chewie, cut out Han saying “Chewbacca” as it sounded patronizing
  • Fix the over the top score which makes your ears bleed about half way through the train heist or cut heist down.
  • Val does not sacrifice herself stupidly she just gets blown up by the droids.
  • Cutdown the kiss between Han & Quira in the falcon by cutting to Becket as to similar to Empires Han & Leia kiss in falcon.
  • Cut L3 fist pumping the air and shouting “Rebellion!” at the spice mines

I’ve noticed a similar number of us here wish you’d included the Caretakers in some way so you could include the 3rd lesson scene as wanted the alternate release of Ep. 3.

I know you’re unlikely to do this officially with unfinished shots, but I was wondering if I could nudge you to release an “alternate workprint” with that single change implemented for pre-Ep 9 viewing? I won’t have my editing computer for a few months or I’d do it myself 😑

Thanks for the PM.

Can’t blame you for trying, If you do end up editing it in yourself let us know 😉
Also I think you’ll fully enjoy what Hal has created here once you’ve seen it for yourself.

Thanks RogueLeader glad to see others liking the noir style 😄. Personally it does seem too soon to think of heavy editing at this point unless they really mess things up which I doubt. I think possibly baby Yoda may well play throughout the whole series storyline as it opens up so many paths and visually I cant help but compare it to Lone Wolf and Cub:

The IG-11 battle is a good example of the intense red halo blaster lense flare effect.

How might it look to only desaturate all but the red colors about halfway?

All examples were taken from the same filter setting values, unfortunately if the blaster saturation goes any lower then we start to lose the more subtle red effects in other scenes like in the examples below.

Unfortunately I’m only working on a humble HTPC and not able to edit videos on it, guess we need someone with strong editing skills to balance the values per scene, Hal! 😉

The Mandelorian - Film Noir Style : <strong>SPOILERS</strong>

I was playing with VLCs filters to see what the mandelorian would look like with film grain to add that dusty film vibe of old and then took it a step further by making it black and white and letting only the red colour shine through, the results are an impressive Sin City style and make repeat viewings a very interesting watch.
