I enjoyed this; thanks for posting it.
I’ll send you a PM.
We’re like the Essenes, recluses living in the desert communes apart from the rest of our religious kin, keeping pure and doing our part to hasten the eschaton. The fan restorations are our Dead Sea Scrolls.
In ROTS, have Vader awaken from the operating table to declare, by implied heavy delusion, “I am Padme.” Vader announces himself in ESB to Luke as his “mother,” and denies in ROTJ that the name ‘Anakin’ has ever referred to himself.
Never say never, but that’s pretty good! What’s the source of the word ‘mother,’ for that, anyway? Has anyone parsed JEJ’s reading of the KJV for the dozens of occurrences of the word?
Incremental improvements are often the difference between something that works for a fan edit and something that is completely seamless and looks/sounds like it always belonged.
The painful truth.
I mean, if it’s just a drop-in and re-encode situation, it’s probably worth it. If not, I wouldn’t sweat it too much.
Unfortunately, for reasons I don’t entirely understand, it never is. FCP7 is a house fire in suspended animation.
For my prequel edits, or at least I and II since III has no subtitles, I would have preferred to match the OT’s font and style. But, I had to do as close of a match as possible to the HDTV of AOTC, and I think I did about as good of a job of it as could be hoped for, down to video noise and discoloring. (Compare the subtitles in the Ep2 Watto scene, which was sourced from the BluRay to allow me to change one shot’s subtitle in order to shorten it, with any other subtitles in the film.) The logical side of me insists that it’s not worth the agony of remastering my edit of AOTC without some larger impetus, but I’m glad I stuck with the PT’s subtitle style. It seems authentic because it is.
When acting in the capacity of Supreme Leader, Kylo Ren dons the ceremonial golden Snoking jacket.
Perhaps this idea could be part of my ROTJ project, as one of two audio tracks. I like the last clip, though too wonder if there’s any way to improve it further.
I can agree with that, Eman. The supposed leaks suggest an awfully convoluted plot, so I hope it doesn’t feel super rushed.
Seems to me that viewing Episodes I through VIII in order would lead one to expect IX to function as something of an epilogue rather than a bombastic conclusion, since there hasn’t been anything much specific being built up to.
What if 25 years ago the OT got released on MUSE Hi-Vision laserdiscs?
Well, that would’ve been great.
That’s still very slow for interstellar travel.
0.5 what, though? Times? A particular unit?
Seeing that book cover makes it click into place why I find most of the new canon stuff less appealing than Legends.
The new stuff looks new, and the old stuff looks old and pulpy. I like the crappy hand drawn stuff and it feels more real to me somehow. The content of new canon is fine, I guess, but it all strikes me as less authentic.
Not to get off topic, just saying.
That ain’t bad at all.
Yes, thanks for doing this. It really seems like a great deal of effort.
SC38 was great, as a stand-alone fun project. But it would have been ludicrous to have turned up in a Special Edition of the film itself.
I’m sorry to hear that the Google drive method is giving you trouble; I had hoped that that method would be good for just about everybody.
I’m sending you a private message.
I wasn’t thrilled with it either and completely understand.
Look out for a PM with the scene, hopefully later today. (I’ve already gotten pulled into the rest of life for now!)
At any rate, should you wish to tinker further with it I could provide the TLJ scene in ProRes, and bake your work back into a version of TLJ that can be exported.
What do you think about this?
Alright, I’ll bite.
650m domestic, 875m international. 1.525 billion worldwide.
My guess: 649,999,999 domestic, 874,999,999 international, and 1,524,999,999 worldwide.
What can I say; I want to win!
Perhaps I missed something, but what do you mean by finding Luke gone? I assumed TLJ would show Rey arriving at the island and blend into Luke receiving the saber.
I suppose if that’s all I can do it would serve the purpose of temporary compatibility for a pre-IX viewing.
I might be able to try something with this today.
Hell, I could throw that together for you if it’d help. I’ve already got it all ripped and laying around at the moment.
