It’s a neat idea, but it looked downright absurd. I don’t buy for one second that I’m seeing an old Alec Guinness sword fighting. And as others have said, it doesn’t match the look of the film at all.

The camera moves, cinematography, lighting, color grade, editing, costumes, etc. are so different that it would be extremely jarring to include this in any edit, imo. Perhaps someone could find a way to squeeze in a few quick shots, but it’d be tricky to match the surrounding footage.

It’s interesting to see what Star Wars would look like had it been made today.

I like it, good job. I definitely think the shot of the AT-AT firing should be flipped horizontally, I think that would greatly improve the scene.

I think that if you flip the shot then it won’t make sense. It is meant to look like Finn’s right speeder wing gets hit so you would expect an AT AT to be shooting from that angle.

Watching it again I see what you mean. I was thinking that it would better match the direction Finn looks, and the angle the scene is shot at in general. Works either way though.

Should I put my name on my fan edit?

I’m not really worried about legal trouble, I’m more concerned with how it might impact my future employment as a video editor. A lot of people in the industry are cool with fan edits, but then there are those who are not. I would hate to lose a potential job because of a fan edit I did 2 years ago, or worse yet, get blacklisted in the industry.

So the more I think about it, as much as I would like to use my real name, I think I will just use a fictitious name. I think I will get a website to post my fan edits on. That way I don’t have to worry about YouTube removing the videos.
I was just shopping for domain names and “DarkEdit.com” is available. That might be a good name for a fan edit site. What do you think?

If you’re getting a site to post your edits you should be worried about legal trouble.

DESPECIALIZED EDITION <em>QUALITY CONTROL</em> THREAD - REPORT ISSUES HERE

REPORT-SW-v2.7
00:30:26

I have watched mkv V2.7 and the theatrical release on dvd and noticed there are some issues with the colour correction on some of the scenes in particular the first scene we see Obi-Wan Kenobi.

His skin tones are very similar to the background (sepia color) and R2-D2 blues is dull/dark.

The landspeeder seems to have lost it slight red tone. I am unsure if it’s most of the scene.

Color will be tweaked in v3.0, it will use Neverar’s Technicolor Recreation as its main source, which looks like this:

Most likely the shot will look like that in Despecialized, if I’m not mistaken.
(btw, the image makes it look a tad more green than it actually is)
