About “Your mother once thought as you do…” there are so many videos on YouTube with James Earl Jones reading The Bible. If anyone can find a verse in the Bible that says “Your mother” and find James Earl Jones saying it… Can it be done??
So will all the PT CGI models be replaced with physical models? I’d replace the trade Federation landing craft with Cindy Crawford.
Funny joke 😃 I mean no offense at all with the following, but you do know most indoor backgrounds for the Prequel Trilogy were real models and not CGI (despite the digital insertion of actors into them looking quite fake), right? And you can’t create unique environments or endless distinct skyscrapers in without CGI, can you?
I don’t know if the goal is to make things look more real and I don’t know how it can be done, but I guess we’ll see. I’m more than sure Ady can pull it off.
May I suggest this change to Return of the Jedi: “Luke Skywalker has finished his Jedi training under Master Yoda. He has now returned to Tatooine in order to rescue him from the vile gangster JABBA THE HUTT.”
And then delete all mentions that Luke’s training is incomplete. We now assume he’s visiting Yoda because he was in poor condition when he last saw him, and he promised to visit later.
I forgot to tell you: it’s not available yet.

Lol my bad xD
I can make the Turkish subtitles. What should I do if I am to do this?
Start with the original bluray subs (or threepio project, since Ady’s version seems to be closer to the GOUT) file, and resync it with subtitle-workshop (free software). If the turkish translation is bad or incorrect you’ll also have the opportunity to rewrite some of it.
That’s being said I recently made a new french translation of the 2011 SE (very close to the original version: Darth Vader instead of Dark Vador and so on; but I’ve kept Faucon Millenium instead of the english version); would be my pleasure to resync it to Ady’s version when the time comes if necessary.
Thanks. One question though: How I correctly sync the subtitles with Ady’s version?

That’s fine, however in my opinion the duel of Bespin would work very well with action music, a portion of used it did too, the middle portion, with The Clash of the Lightsabers. Without Duel of the Fates it still works but not much would change. Duel of the Fates gives more excitement to it in my opinion.
While music can sometimes make a scene more exciting, other times though (depending on the mood and what’s happening in a scene), no music can have its own positive reward and therefore be the better choice. In the case of Luke’s initial confrontation with Vader in the freezing chamber, no music there makes the scene more ominous in an already haunting environment. Our ears really hone in on all the details around - the steam and other subtle background elements, Vader’s breathing, then the duel itself - it’s a very thrilling experience of its own really 😃
Fair enough. I too think the scene is already thrilling but I think Duel of the Fates hightens the excitement of our main character duelling with the murderer of his father (which is later revealed to be his father himself). But<span style=“line-height: 14.3999996185303px;”>, if you think it’s better without music then you have no argument from me 😉 To each his own.</span>
The thing is, duels (lightsaber or otherwise) can have significance other than 'exciting' and 'cool'. It's understandable that the Episode I clash would be scored with exhilarating choral music, because it's a visually spectacular duel with relatively low stakes.
But the later battles (each of which involves Anakin or Vader, by the way) have increasingly more complex emotion behind them - they're still epic, but in a different way. I personally feel that 'Battle of the Heroes' is a bungled choice; it shouldn't be a loud and energetic piece of scoring at all, given that the Episode III duel is the tragic climax of the saga.
But moving on to the OT, the scoring is just right as it is - in Star Wars the very idea of a lightsaber battle was new, so it's understandable that scoring wasn't felt necessary until the very end; the (carefully edited) music in the ESB duel beautifully captures Luke's fear and heartbreak; the climactic Jedi clash is scored with one of the finest pieces in the whole saga (a truly epic cue if every there was one).
To plaster these scenes with pounding action music would be to completely miss the point.
That's fine, however in my opinion the duel of Bespin would work very well with action music, a portion of used it did too, the middle portion, with The Clash of the Lightsabers. Without Duel of the Fates it still works but not much would change. Duel of the Fates gives more excitement to it in my opinion. My video shows how it can be edited. It's the revelation of Vader being Luke's father where the true emotion comes in my opinion, so I had no problem with adding music to Empire. The problem with adding music actually comes in Return of the Jedi. If you had added Duel of the Fates (or any other exciting music) would rob it's emotion, his dilemma of fighting his father, falling to the Dark Side etc. So if I added it to Return of the Jedi I would agree with you that adding music would rob the emotion from the fight. But here I don't agree you completely. But that's fine, no problem if you disagree.
Ady has no intention of adding music to the Cloud City duel. In fact, I think he intends to dial back his changes when he redoes ANH in HD, and that won't include Battle of the Heroes anymore either.
The original intent adding that music was that it was symbolic of Vader and Obi's last battle. Duel of the Fates on the other hand has no significance to either Vader or Luke, so I don't think there's any payoff with it. Maybe in another edit :)
I understand, that's cool. In my opinion the lightsaber fight in A New Hope, while still fun, lacked the energy of the fights in Episode V, VI, I, II and III. Adywan's added music belped add some energy and excitement to the fight. While the Bespin duel was much better, I thought some more excitement would be welcome so I decided that Duel of the Fates, while, yes, it didn't have to do anything with Vader and Luke, still added a lot of excitement and fun to the already emotionally and physically strong battle making t even more perfect than it was.
Also why does Adywan want to remove the music from ANH:RHD? I thought the music helped the fight very much (I already explained how).
So I was wondering... Are you going to add a cool lightsaber music to the Bespin duel like you added Battle of the Heroes to the Death Star duel? I thought that was very well done and I would like to see something similar to that.
I made a quick idea video on how it would be like (and please read the description) if you put Duel of the Fates from the Phantom Menace to that duel:
P.S. If I'm doing something wrong by posting the YouTube link the I sincerely apologize. It's just that I couldn't find a video adding button to the post like in Fanedit.org.
Yeah, I guess your right. I just wanted a beta version for personal use not to leak it on the internet, because I was going to watch the entire "perfected" Star Wars Saga before I go to Celebration Anaheim. Which consists of Hal9000's Prequels, Adywan's A New Hope Revisited, and Q2's Return of the Jedi Hybrid edit all I'm missing is the perfect Empire edit which essentially is Adywan's The Empire Strikes Back Revisited. *Sigh* I guess I've waited 4 years I can wait a little bit more. Thanks for replying! and Thanks to Adywan and his team for all the Hard Work!
I suggest either te Despecialized Edition of The Empire Strikes Back or The ADigitalMan Special Edition. The former, as you already might know, is a complete HD reconstruction of the Theatrical Edition. The latter is, similar to Q2's Return of the Jedi, removes all the most offensive changes to the Special Edition. Personally I prefer the latter because I like most of the changes to Empire, for example Cloud City is less claustrophobic and the Emperor hologram is more consistent and better in my opinion, except the altered dialogue (which ADigitalMan fixes).

Is ESB:R going to be available in both DVD and BluRay? if so, will there be differences among the versions? (beside the video quality)
The DVD will be as Adywan originally intended but will be at a low resolution and feature a sadly 'washed out' image. The Blu-Ray will be in full HD but will feature a new totally different colour-timing to the DVD, be heavily DNRd and Adywan will add in loads of extra changes that we all hate.
Will there be an AVCHD format?
