Hal, are you finally including/considering DominicCobb’s idea for rescoring the Final Order revelation with the “Anthem of Evil” track? Or are you keeping the Imperial march?

I’m leaving the Imperial March in order to imply as strongly as I can that these are old imperial ships that were stashed away. (For lack of a way to explicitly state as much.)

Info & Idea: Editing '2010: The Year We Make Contact'
Time

I don’t need anyone calling me chunky, even if it was ten years ago.

Just wanted to say, I’d watch this! I would prefer not to change much as far as removing scenes, but I like the other ideas you present in the OP. I second the idea of using classical music that has some symbolic meaning, if esoteric.

I kinda want to watch this movie now; it’s been a while.

Would you consider cutting Poe’s line “Did we ever find his volume control?”. I think 3PO’s new line about an R2 unit works better on it’s own and we’d have one less moment of Poe treating 3PO like trash (specially odd after he just sacrificed himself). Just cut to Finn & Jannah before Poe starts talking.

Honestly it’s bizarre how Poe treats 3PO & D-O compared to his relation to BB-8 in the previous films.

I can see how it plays; I agree in principle.

I probably would’ve named TFA:R differently if I’d foreseen the other two edits existing. Oh, well!

The suffix, I mean, not the film title.

The prequels had a long history of being renamed by the time I did my second set of edits starting in 2013. The sequels did not, and I did not think when I worked on TFA:R that there would be any more. Plus, I like the sequel titles overall much more than the prequel titles.

I saw that snooker had posted recently in the ‘going away’ thread, so it’s possibly she may be gone for some time. This leaves us with a slight problem related to the Naboo shot. I don’t know if anyone else with the skill would want to try to improve upon it. It may be good enough as is, even if able to be picked apart in some ways. If so I can send the raw clip that she sent me.

Kewlfish, I can’t seem to make anything of the clip you posted of Rey’s training sequence. It appears to be in a codec none of my tools can process. Any ideas, or could you perhaps export to ProRes?

Here’s a clip anway, with my audio but no visual changes yet. The effect isn’t super audible very often, nor should it be. https://vimeo.com/442788429
