A New Hope Repossessed
Time

Ok, the final cutlist on this edit “Repossessed”:

This is basically FGR’s Reimagined cut with the following updates:

- Possessed’s ANH is now the base, which means complete color correction - sooo much better. 
- The scenes I used from FGR have been color corrected to match Possessed’s cut
- New blaster bolts and lightsabers
- Vader’s chest plate lights work in all scenes
- Replace Death Star operators with the ones from Rogue One
- Entrance to Mos Eisley has been extended slightly to include overhead shot
- Replaced a few shots of Obi wan during the Sc.38 duel (upgrades in quality)
- New Alderaan explosion
- Replace Forest canopy shot on Yavin with new slow panning shot
- Add Yavin Temple Base establishing shot (from Rogue One)
- New upgraded clips added to Battle of Yavin (x-wings taking out surface guns, new wide shot of all x-wings and TIEs, a few new x-wing/TIE dogfight clips and a new Y-wing clip - the original was horrendous)

I use Vegas Pro so unfortunately I can’t help with specifics. I use secondary color correcturn filters to isolate specific colors and color correction filters when color correcting. I’m sure there are some really good regraders here that could offer specific Adobe tips. The samples you shared looked good.

Thanks! Yea, it’s not easy. I’m playing around with masks at the moment just to test out some ideas I had to make a few scenes look a bit more realistic and dark. Less “cartoony” if that makes any sense.

Would love to see you export a clip with that grading J! Would also like to see you try this out with Palpatine during Vader’s christening. I’ve always felt the lighting felt pretty bland, so maybe an interesting color grade could give it a different feeling.

I’m still working on the clip. It’s tricky!! I’m still learning color grading and it’s definitely not easy. I actually can’t wait to work on the Vader ‘christening’ clip too. All scenes with Sidious/Palpatine are my priority with this project.

sad to see talented editors get banned here. everyone deserves a 2nd chance

I agree this is the premiere site for fanedits and editors, so it would be nice to have everyone here. fyi Forceghost has his own site for all his projects. It’s a shame there has to be childish drama to ruin it for everyone.

To be clear, the ‘childish drama’ came from ForceGhostRecon (and his socks) - it was his homophobic slurs and actions that got himself the ban(s) - which were seemingly repeated on at least one other fan edit site too.
 

yikes. Sounds a bit out of character from what I’ve read from his comment history, but I also saw his thread over on fanedit, where he was getting harassed for basically no reason, so without proof, I’ve got nothing against the guy. He honestly does some great work. I was just saying it’s a shame he isn’t here anymore.

It doesn’t exist to my knowledge. I’m not sure how you’d go about making the Emperor makeup look more like ROTJ - when Adywan did it for ESB, it was mostly still images stitched together, which worked for two static shots, but wouldn’t for all the full-range-of-motion shots of ROTS.

Deepfaking is something that could be looked into, though.

Something like this…

Does anyone know of an edit of ROTS that has been regraded to make the Emperor look more like the OT Emperor and desaturate the movie overall? It would have to be shot-by-shot. Does this exist? I’m thinking about taking this on. ROTS is one of my favorite SW movies, but suffers from oversaturation and looks overly ‘digital’ as well. I’d love to tone it down a bit. Let me know if you guys know anything! Thanks

newtonian star wars, Death Star assault

Is this for fan edit? (I do not quite understand it - sorry.)

well, it’s not for anything that I’ve found, other than my own entertainment.

but basically, Star Wars is old. It shouldn’t be allowed to be controlled by a single entity, and I think that instead of Star Wars being considered a single story , it should be considered a Theme, where anyone anywhere is allowed to produce versions. Then, it should be managed like open source projects, where community members can participate in forks, with more popular forks rising to the top, but also representing the various fan communities.

THEN< , there should be a fork that basically addresses the “newtonian physics” fans, those people who were literally hoping to sit there and watch ships specifically manage their thrust angle in order to control their vector through combat.

this post (thread) is bizarre! lol

A New Hope - Reimagined

I know he’s not here anymore but for everyone else, i see Forceghost actually released another edit after this edit of Rogue One and it’s almost like the prologue portion of this edit but extended with a few extras, most notably (imo) a new Vader/Emperor sequence for the intro complete with new dialogue. It’s short but very cool and different from any of the other Rogue One edits out now. Anyway, it’s worth checking out.
