Posting final 1920 w Resolution scenes for the first 3 from last week for those that may want. Currently still working on luke/treadwell and Toshe Station #1 deleted scenes.

-Troopers search hallway doors on Tantive
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1viGQB8EwSD4K7ox1L3QDRc083d_m9_Qy/view?usp=sharing

Honestly, I think it may be best if we leave this scene behind.

-Droids looking for the escape pod

Love it!

-Droids in the desert
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pS_zbO1xR7VuF6lj4QJVRulmsOm9J92T/view?usp=sharing

It goes randomly quiet at 0:10-0:11, but besides that, everything is great! Love the echo added to 3P0’s lines, did you do that or was that already in the radio drama?

A New Hope Closer to Canon Edition

thx! g&g fan!

personally, the Vader line change is because I feel its a better response to: ‘’ don’t try to fool us with your sorcerers ways ‘’

about the romantic stuff, the only thing in my mind to be removed is the part were Luke says: She’s beautiful, so I will look into that.

on another note, I’m trying to make Beru a bit younger (and I gave her a bit more upper lip), please tell me your opinion guys and gals:

canonically Owen and Beru should look younger so I removed some wrinkles.

I won’t make obi wan younger, tbh Alec looked very good for his age and didn’t have that may wrinkles in his face compared to Owen and Beru

Owen will be the next one to be made a bit younger

It looks great!

Some progress on this…

To refresh your memory about this project, it is ANH (Adywan version as base w/~45 additional scenes (New from radio drama, deleted restored etc.) I mentioned prior that I was going to release some clips beginning of March but of course are behind as restoring deleted scenes that have dust, scratches and color fix is taking far more time than I thought. The Luke and treadwell scene is a nightmare…probably the worst of the deleted to try and restore, However; making progress and are about 85% through it. As such, I will need a few more weeks for the first draft of this scene …see below description:

• Luke w/treadwell on the surface
Essentially the deleted scene, but fully restored and re-edited to fit proper pacing of where it would go in the film + significantly more audio courtesy of the radio drama version. Luke sees the ships from the surface and includes an updated macrobinocular view & few more shots of treadwell and Version 2 of this to come later and will have Luke from a few different angles to improve the flow of this scene + improved binocular view with ships instead of the 1977 triangles representation of 2 ships? Scebe ends with Luke leaving in landspeeder to tell his friends what he has seen.


Below are some more links to some finished extra scenes that are completed:
Note: Google drive 1080P does not represent true 1080P clarity (to say the least)

-Troopers search hallway doors immediately after entering the Tantive Compare to original cut

-Troopers search hallway doors compare to original unrestored version
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kgfSshUr7F272fmnZpd4Sgf_RZw50PK7/view?usp=sharing
Extra deleted scene of troopers searching hallway doors immediately after entering Tantive. Gives a sense that the troopers are checking each door first before proceeding through the halls - laser bolts added here, dust and scratch removal etc.

Extended scene of droids looking for escape pod as taken from the Radio Drama, here there is more dialogue and extended scenes before they get in plus more dialogue inside the pod itself after launching.

Note:some of the comparison with the original scene varies from actual original version in that it is always a challenge to compare an extended version with slightly different edit choices and keep the audio for both in sync. With that disclaimer, know that the “original” consist of maybe 95% and of what purist know as the “original” and is not intended to be a 1:1, but close to see a before and after and in respect to what is added in the “X” version

So, here’s my feedback: The two scenes with the droids are great, fantastic! Excellent editing, bravo to you sir! BUT, and this is a strong but, I can’t say I’m a fan of the extended Tantive IV chase. It is very obvious once you see the new wall, there is noticeable tracing around the troopers and helmets, and there is still a lot of grain left behind.

I remember years ago someone mocking up a hologram of Grievous in AotC, I think in place of Death Star. The concept was pretty lame, tbh, but the execution was good iirc, effects-wise.

This was actually my concept. Haha.

I recall someone coming on the forum not long after I started getting involved here, around summer 2015, offering to do some effects work, and it was just a suggestion I through out there. Thought it would be a fun way to set up Grievous, since the Death Star doesn’t really play a role in ROTS besides on of the final shots of the film.

Looking back now, I’d rather keep the Death Star, but give the graphics that classic look with the dish at the equator.

Could you send me that clip?

Cobra Kai – it’s been one of my guilty pleasures for sure. Great use of ambiguity in terms of who is the good guy vs who is the bad guy. The Johnny Lawrence character is fantastic, and the way that season 4 ended was so deliciously creepy. I hope they can keep it going!

Rock on, man. I agree with everything here! I really like how the show treats its characters, like you said, ‘who is good and who is bad’, which makes me think of how good and evil are only points of view. And YES, Johnny is one of my favorite characters in the KK universe!

STAR WARS - EPISODE I - The Ancient Lore [V2] [IMPROVED Version]

I’m trying something on a whim here, and I am interested in whether this approach is working or not.

https://streamable.com/gov9qd

I am simply trying to create better conversations and some humour between Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon. I think the first portion works very well (up until “is going to be the death of me”), and the latter about 80%.

I’m trying to achieve a few things through this dialogue:

  • Obi-Wan is inpatient and a little whiny, much like most Padawans are (Anakin will be). But with decent humour and irony.
  • A little gab at the original film premise (diplomatic mission)
  • Obi-Wan hating the planet, that he will once end up living on
  • Qui-Gon trying to keep his Padawan’s mind focused on the Force and the ways of the Jedi.

I think it works great! BTW, are those AI voices? What app did you use, those sound great!

Check out Obi-Wan’s clone wars voice, this one is spot on and might be useful for some Prequel edits as well, due to JAT’s Obi sounding a lot like Ewan’s.

I typed a test sentence in, and it added some stuff to the end that I didn’t put in. I’m god damn losing it.

I just did another test and the same thing happened. It always happens. I think it’s a glitch in the software.

With all the talk (both here and in the TPM community thread) of having Shmi already be free by the time of AOTC, I wanted to share this attempt I made at the Watto scene to remove references to him selling her but maintain the information we need about the Lars family.

I feel like there’s a lot of very obvious audio cuts, but besides that, it is a very good rough cut!
