-4:41 I think heard a very very faint sound of a voice for a split sechond(Obi won?), this is because you cut some of the dialogue from the center channel but maybe there was a bit leftover that you missed

Hah there is the briefest “s” sound, good catch. I don’t think it’s worth fixing though, it’s very minor.

-8:15 I might just be delusional but I swear it sounds like a millisecond of his voice is cut off when Count dooku says “please” at the end, could be wrong

Hm, I don’t hear anything wrong here -shrug-

-The music when it goes from Grevious escaping and the ship crashing to the inside of the cockpit seems to kinda just stop, around 14 and a half minutes in, this one is not really an issue just rather something I noticed and felt like it went different in the original movie, I believe because you cut him talking to himself in the escape pod which is good, although somewhat noticable

Yeah, this transition was one that was revised probably ten times. This is as good as it will ever get I think. The music itself ends incredibly abruptly in the original movie and the soundtrack, so I had to do my best.

I’m glad you enjoyed it though!

I know, and I do feel bad about that. Unfortunately I don’t have the time to hand-adjust the entire movie’s subtitles, or transcribe it, not sure which would be harder.

If someone else provides me a subtitle file I would be happy to try to embed it in the MKV files, or at the very least host it alongside them.

I agree with the smoke in the Naboo shots, slowing it down should help some. And none of the other shots have any camera shake, so it throws me off when there’s a little wobble as the ship explodes. I’m guessing you added that in part to help all the pieces blend together, but it ends up being distracting to me rather than helping. Definitely looking better overall though!

Is it just me, or do the buildings seem very dark for the brightness of the sunset? I guess the light is from behind them, so they would be silhouetted, but maybe dim the sunset a little bit (or find an ever-so-slightly less vibrant one?) to let the ship explosions and building lights stand out a little bit more? Honestly I quite like the existing sky, but I also want to make sure it isn’t distracting from the rest.

Love that rearranged opening, though I really wish there were some way to reveal the ships without them magically emerging from the ground. Likewise I’d forgotten how much I immediately facepalm at “Somehow, Palpatine has returned” line, as others have mentioned. Not much possible for either of those I’d guess.

It’s too bad Boolio’s shot is so quick, but I agree it doesn’t make sense to make it awkward, even if that does seem to be the best place to add in some attempts at retconning the fleet.

It’s too bad footage had to be reversed in order to get enough room. I think finding some alternate source for a choir belting out those notes, maybe with a little less gusto, would help make it feel diagetic to that moment.

I agree though, it’s a natural idea for that moment.

Absolutely agreed. It’s great to get the full music phrase in there, but the version that General Kenobi posted definitely sounds more diagetic. Perhaps as a result of it sounding like the choir is fully diagetic, and the trumpets sounding like they’re in the soundtrack supporting the in-room choir.
