Here’s a full mockup of the Ach-To sequence, featuring a regrade by NeverArGreat:

I actually really, really like this! 😃

My only suggestions would maybe be that the colours of the very first shot of the island are a little funky looking and could probably match the following shots a little better. I also think the moment inside of Luke’s hut should by made a little more distinctly nighttime since at the moment it looks a little too ‘day-to-night’ if you get that reference. 😉

I agree with all of this. Less orange, more night. I like it. You guys (everyone involved) are amazing, really looking forward to V2. I have V1 and haven’t watched it cause I would rather wait for the perfected version.

PD: I love the purple saber.
PD2: I can NOT notice the wig, never had a problem with it, kill me.

Glad I could help.
I double checked which ones by the second where happens, but the one you said is the one where is most noticeable.
It happens barely at: 1:48:42, 1:48:54, 1:49:23, 1:50:34
Slightly: 1:49:11
Noticeable: the one you said at 1:51:09
Maybe by heavily trimming the scene of the keys would work as well. He is supposed to be an Ace with the broom, so you could make it a really fast paced challenge. I did a test with Vr.2. with trimming it like this:
Cut at 1:38:06 when he points at the key and shouts “the one with the broken wing” to 1:38:29 until 1:38:34 when Harry’s hand grabs the broom and keys start going down. Cut until he is already almost catching the key and passing it to Hermione, from 1:39:01 til 1:39:12. Next cut would start from 1:39:17 til 1:39:19 so we see her trying to open the door but avoid again the horrible CGI and the we unite this bit with 1:39:21 where she opens the door and Harry comes in.
This would avoid most of the horrible acting and CGI of this challenge, but keep it for a better, fast paced, plot. Again I did this with the Vr.2.

Great news! I downloaded and it’s great to see the deepfake. Sometimes looks perfect, but there’s some scenes where Voldys face is a little bit unsynchronized. You can “see through” his face and Quirrel’s head. Nitpicking I would add that now that the keys test is gone, it makes a bit of a blooper, where Harry’s clothes are perfectly fine in one take, and ruined in the next one. And he has cuts and dirt in hands and face. I guess if the scene after Ron falls from the plant was cut it could go for “the plant did it”, but Hermione and Ron are perfectly fine and clean, though. All in all, looking forward to watch your whole saga ones DH is finished (no hurries). I watched your V1 of the first 2 movies before PoA was finished and loved them both.

Idea Wanted... for solving Game of Thrones: The Ending Chapters
Time

I recently saw DarthYcey’s take on S7&8 and I think Night King’s ending there was spot on, very close to your original idea. I’m not certain on how much it took from almightycutie, I haven’t seen that one, but I would say is the best we can get from the source material. Also worth checking out the post to read how it rearranged the rest of this two failed seasons to make a worthy one.

Game of Thrones: Restored, Restructured, Rewatchable (Released)
Time

I finished this edit and I have a few things to say. I hope they are worth the read. (I will try to give positive feedback, but I don’t think I’m good at it, sorry).

First things first: I like it. I was surprised by the fact that I was keen to watch the next episode every day. I decided to settle for one each night and so I did. After every chapter I was excited to see what came next, even do I knew it, since I read the whole post beforehand. I couldn’t wait and I watched the last 2 episodes in a raw. I think you did a great job, this does some healing and it can be my head canon.

The few things I noticed that made me “lose foot”, were 2 minor changes and other bigger one. I missed Gendry killing the 2 guards in Kingslanding, since it made his next scene more believable, as it made sir Davos sentence about Gendry’s ability with the hummer better. But that is minor and a first timer will never notice it, so that’s just me.

The big problem to me was “Into the North”. Don’t get me wrong, the editing is very good and making Bran tell Daenerys was very nice (about time he did something with his powers), but to me it is not clear what they were trying to achieve, for certain not kill the Night King. I think, stupid as it is, showing them capture the wight instead of trying to hide it, would help a lot this chapter plot wise. More so, when there are few takes where there is a tied wight and they protect it. It will add up 20 seconds to the chapter and it will give much more sense to it. Then again, it’s just my opinion.
The other minor thing was the whole Iron throne scene, but given the source material, is as good as it can possibly be.

I think making Bran posses Arya to do the big kill was very well put. We saw her do the move on Brianne few chapters ago so it’s quite plausible for it to happen again, more so with Bran’s big assist.

All in all, I think this is a great edit, thanks for kipping Missandei alive. I wish there where subtitles for it, so I could show to my friends. I really appreciate the effort put into this edit. It’s the best thing that happened to Game of Thrones since the Great Sept of Baelor became a summer terrace.

Yesterday I finally watched this edit (thanks to Yuri_Kenobi for the subtitles, they are great) and best thing I can say of it is I couldn’t tell what was added or trimmed,except for the “Han Solo” scene, but now it works. The movie was quite enjoyable, to the point where now will be part of my Star Wars marathons, which wasn’t before. Thanks Digmod for this edit.

The Last Jedi: Rekindled (Released) (V3 UPDATE!)
Time

Well now that was put on the table, there’s a minor issue that bugs me. I came across to it while making the Spanish subs (WIP): “Fuel reserves at six hours.” I don’t know if this was discussed before, but why mention time when using fuel? and worse, hours in Star Wars. Mention parsecs or something else, distance. It was properly cuted out in TROS:Ascendant and I wander if it would be posible to take it out of this edit, maybe by trimming the scene a bit or even whole could work.

Hi!
I posted this in the last post of the GoT movies Anjohan has, but I think it fits better here. I don’t think this video has been posted before in any GoT related post.
It’s 2 hours long, but I think it gives us the ending GoT deserved, not the one we got, episode by episode:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HX2mVfRv7kw&t=6s

I don’t think this can be made, but probably Anjohan can get some good ideas from this for the final movie, it is really well thought and put.

The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)

Hi everyone, big fan of what’s going on here! I’ve been following this thread from the very beginning I watched Workprint V2 and it already looked way better than the original film, and with the last changes getting ready I think we’ll finally get the movie we deserved (I mean, with the material we have. I wish Snoke could have survived TLJ to be the main villain here).

I know we want to slow things down here for better pacing, and speeding things up is a no no, but: I can’t stand Slow-mo Kylo. It takes me out of the movie so bad. I can see JJ telling A. Driver “Hey you’re a badass character, so you have to do badass stuff, like killing people going backwards, and at the same time, make sure you move your foot correctly so you’ll set this on fire at the same time, cause just killing people backwards is not badass enough for kylo ren. Oh oh, and we’ll make it slo-mo, cause it’s more badass, I know there isn’t slo-mo in star wars, but eff it, we’re adding flashbacks in this one already.”

I’m no editor, so this is just a thought, but could someone sped Kylo up to normal or even fast-sithlike speed? I think it would be much more starwarsy and, also, badass. I know, I know I’m loco, speeding things up WTF. I know this will bring problems like the score and all, and I know I’m very late for the party, but it has being bothering me lately and I wanted to share my thought.

Cheers and all my respect for all of you editors out there!

I think the deleted scene could still be salvaged. All that needs to be worked on is the background, which could be added in from other scenes.

This scene should be in the movie. It’s good to see Finn do something else than scream REEEY and see Phasma with a little more depth than Fett (but that wouldn’t be too starwarsy, would it?). I hope someone here could fix that scene. Anyhow congrats on all your good work Hal, your edits are my way to go for the Star Wars marathons.

Harry Potter Extended Editions (Released)

I’m sorry to read this. I felt that your extended editions where a great way to enjoy the movies as a whole, beter than the original release. Trolls will be trolls. I know it’s quite unpopular to share fanedits as torrent, but some do, as for example Hal9000. Maybe to make certain to be credited for your work, you could torrent them as well. Anyhow, your work is fantastic and I hope you keep up the good work. Cheers!

I tried to give you some positive feedback for Countdown in the other post and I will do the same now. I think the first one came up really great as an edit, except for a minor detail that I explained in the Countdown thread. As for this one I have to say that I couldn’t finish it. Not due to quality, but sound. I liked the beginning with Bale (although I have my doubts due to characters age, shouldn’t John Connor look older by 2029?).

My problem with the movie was with the scene after the bar. I get what you where aiming for with the music change, but I found several problems with that scene. First, it’s extremely loud, too much, as you can’t hear the conversation between the shotgun guy and the T800. Second, you can still here the beginning of Wild thing, which feels weird with the introduction of Swat attack so sudden and loud. Third, I think for anyone who has watched the movie before, that scene is such an iconic moment that changing the song doesn’t seem to fit properly. Also the bike sound doesn’t fit the bike moves.

After this scene there seemed to be a problem with the sound, (maybe it was my computer), too loud at times to low some others I spent the next 20 minutes of the film turning the volume up and down until I decided to stop. Seems odd cause for T1 the sound was not an issue at all.

I am not degrading your job, at least that’s not my goal. I just wanted to share my thoughts and feedback. I really like your ideas for this and I appreciate the effort and thought you put in it. I really hope to see a V2 with the sound issues fixed. Great job!

I honestly wouldn’t know if it’s your computer or not. The movie sounds fine with my headphones. I don’t play thing through my computer speakers because I don’t live alone and it would bother others.

The thing with the bar scene, there very well could be a problem, but I can’t fix it. I can’t cut dialog from scenes, no matter what technique I try the sound on films I have are always on the same tracks. Just like with MiB4 the music is still there, just softer, or the og music will play when the people talk, and that sounds bad to me. But as I said I use a head phone jack and the stuff sounds fine to me when I play it.

It’s a shame you couldn’t enjoy it. Sorry for wasting your time.

Hey! No time wasted! I love to see one of my favourite movies getting some love! And I did enjoy a lot your approach for T1.

Also after reading your comment I decided to give it a second try. This time with my headphones and I have to say, even though I still found some minor issue with the audio I could go through the whole movie, and I enjoyed your approach. About the bar scene, maybe you could try to lower a little the whole thing down, and I don’t know, maybe add subtitles there? English is not my first language so I’m quite used to subs and I would barely notice them, but for the people who are against them, maybe it wouldn’t bother them for that tiny bit.
Keep up the good work!

I just watched the movie yesterday and since I don’t have it too fresh I have to say that I got really into it and everything seemed to fit really well. Nitpicking I would say that it felt weird to hear a voice at the beginning (Bale’s one) while there was a text on screen saying something completely different and maybe even more important for the story. But other than that It’s a really good edit!
