What did you use for the “upgrade”?
For the duel, I used the scene38 trailer footage. Only a few short clips have been released but that’s all I really wanted for my edit - in my opinion, the few short bursts makes sense considering aged Obiwan and Vader’s suit limitations - it also doesn’t take us too far away from the feel of the original. I think it flowed really well.
For the Death Star explosion, I repurposed some footage of Krypton exploding and added the sound effect.
For the TIE attack, I had a short CGI clip saved from a while ago that I had used in my EP3 edit (I can’t remember where I got it) and it fit perfectly for this. I actually like Adywan’s treatment better, but the quality didn’t match up for this edit.
And the overall edit was a regraded edit of ANH I had saved a while ago… it’s always been my favorite color graded version visually, but i felt like it needed a few ‘upgrades.’
This is basically to hold me over until ANH:R. 😃
