The Force Awakens - Ridley's Edit
Time

Yeah the ending scene has never been a hug issue one way or another, mostly because neither its inclusion or exclusion has ever felt like it adds anything to the movie (except a big cliff hanger) but that cliff hanger works in both cuts.

Personally I found the scene felt misplaced from my first viewing in the cinema. I was actually preparing to leave when ray and Chewie were boarding the MF and everyone waving and was fully expecting the the iris to close on Leia and 3PO. I very taken a back when the movie continued for a more minutes. After that I started to settle in assuming the movie must not be anywhere close to finishing (it didn’t seem impossible that time had just flown by and there was still 15 maybe 20 minutes left to go), but then boom it ends abruptly.

But I also have grown accustomed to its presence so I can see how knowing it should be there might make its absence lead to the film feeling incomplete. But that’s just my opinions. Maybe you could do an Alternative cut if its not a bother (but if it is then again I should’t think it would ruin anyone’s experience one way or the other.

Ady has CG models he used in ESBR that can be reused for ANHRHD.

I didn’t realize that adywan added any CG TIEs to ESBR, just thought after he lost all his original assets from ANHR he might not have gotten around to making a new one, but yeah if he has models ready to go that’s good. But also if he ever needs to make any for other vehicles or terrain or even buildings, hopefully he can check should Meshroom.

Hey Adywan, you know you mentioned putting in new 3D tie into the background. Well I was wondering how you were going to do them, weather you had models already or weather you are going to film real ones or still need to make ones. Anyway what ever you do end up doing I thought I’d let you know about this new (free/opensource) software Meshroom. Its a 3D scan compositor and well I’ve been playing around with a for a few days and found it rather easy to learn.

While I was testing it I had the idea of trying to use an old Tie Fighter model I had to see if it would work, which you can see here: https://imgur.com/a/uirCFfQ

If you want to use my scans or want to know anything about using meshroom or anything let me know. This technology is amazing and there are too many things to mention, I can think to use it for.

[EDIT]Oh, forgot to mention, all you need to use to get a scan is a camera and just take loads of overlapping picture from all around the object and it’ll calculate the positions in 3D space. So cool

That good to hear. I can understand stresses of trying to balance loads personal projects and so I get when somethings need to be put on the back burner. Its both a curse and a luxury that usually leads to better results even if you may have to wait along time for them. But the best things in life are always the ones worth waiting for. You take your time, don’t let nags like me rush you and good luck with the other edits.

I did try to explain on some of the comments on the facebook page that something is throwing off my regrade on the comparison shots that have a strong cyan tint in the blu-rays. Whether its something to do with how the site recompresses the video or what it was i don’t know. But the whites had a yellowish tint in places that is NOT on the files i’m working with.

Oh right my bad, I don’t use facebook tbh, so i had no idea that anything was posed there, but thanks for explaining it for me.

OK so yeah, this is what i mean:

Now, I think the shadows might be a bit to dark, but that might be a side effect of how they produced such a the HD image from old film reals. That aside if you look at Adywan’s colour grade you can see how the lights behind the emperor are a yellow white while the diffused light bouncing of the ship is tinted blue. I believe this is because they actually had blue-white lighting on set for this movie, rather than the yellower lights that most movie sets used back in the 70s.
So (correct me if I’m wrong) but this shows that the regrade might be slightly over done, as the lights should not have a yellow tint if they are producing a blue glow. Also the 4K83 is based directly off of original film copies so if there is any accurate grading out there, I would say it is the 4K83.
I hope this is helpful and seen as constructive criticism, and I feel like this can’t be said enough but good luck Ady and I hope you’re having fun.

As far as the uniforms are concerned I’m with Adywan on this one. I don’t know much about the correct colour of Feldgrau but I do know how light reacts strangely with fabrics especially on film. coupled with the blue/cyan tint present in all the special edition blu-rays its understandable that the uniforms might not look as we remembered. I mean can anyone else remember how insane it was when everyone found out the Solo’s coat from ESBR was brown not blue?
If people still aren’t sure just look at rouge one, they based their suits off of those at the Lucas Film archives. Now while the movie does have a slight orange/blue filter applied to it, the set photos do not, and under studio lighting, they appear grey.
I think Adywan has got as close as anyone ever will to replicating the original look of the uniforms with the slightly brown/green grey (you can see that if you colour pic the pixels in PS).

I think the TIE fighter bit from the opening sequence is just a matter of the perspective shifting, not an actual continuity error.

I agree, i also think that the hanger “extending into space” is down to an exaggerated angle of perspective. Form what i can tell the platform is raised and it looks like the hanger has two floors but at the same time there is no sign of this in the official cut away diagrams, either way i think ady will be making a miniature to replace the terrible mat painting behind lando and han so he may come across the solution when he does.

OK, I’d like to begin with saying this isn’t my idea and it is one from another editor they may or may not be end up using it, but its an idea none the less that I thought might be worth sharing as it requires little to no alterations, to already planned edits.
Rather than having Death Star I and then II the idea is to have the death star damaged or at least only partially destroyed, and then repaired over the course of ESB to be once again fully operational.
Now as you are reconstructing your original edit of ANH it seems to me that you could alter the destruction of the DS to leave fragments or a husk behind (idk how well that would fit in with the 70s SP aesthetic) but you’ve already shown you have a knack for that sort of thing.
It also wouldn’t interfere (form what I can see) with your plans for ROTJ, except for the possible removal or replacement of some dialog.
Thirdly, though this is more of bonus it wouldn’t interfere with anything from TFA as they only ever refer to the first DS as THE Death Star, so that even makes more sense if its just one.

Anyway its just an idea and if Adywan doesn’t feel it belongs in revisited I’m sure Digmodification will get to it at some point, I just thought it could make a fine edition to your collection. At the same time I don’t know how you or Digmod would feel about it being incorporating here, as it was his idea but that is only something to sort out with him if you were going to use it.

Looks amazing and its as it should be. I have never been comfortable with the idea of removing peoples contributions from a film the way Lucas did. Did I miss Shaw? Not really but I certainly preferred him over Christensen. If I had been George and I was going to paste a random actors head in there for no good reason I would have done it with David Prowse. That would have been a good reason. Still WB Sebastian!

How does this guy have 100% positive feedback, that shouldn’t be possible. How can no-one have given him less than a five star review. I looked at what people said and most of them seam to either the same word for word or at least along the same lines, plus none of them are more than 10 words. I wouldn’t be surprised if he reviews are bots so that when someone reports him a mod looks at his reviews and goes “5 star reviews, 100% satisfaction rate, 10% PROFIT FOR US(!!!), looks fine to me”. Its scummy but considering the amount of product he pushes ebay will ALWAYS look the other way. What a sleemo.

Ah its a bit of a shame but it does make sense. It was a one in a million shot, though I did feel that Han new that, considering his surprise at hearing someone get hit. I always imagined he was thinking ‘Never tell me the odds’ as he looks back to where the trooper was. Still its not the end of the world if it goes.

As far as the V1 vs V2 debate, I for one am more inclined to the V1 version since it felt like the Resistance absolutely failed and that their destruction of SKB was out of revenge. Almost like a “Remember the Alamo” type of situation.

Having SKB just immediately start targeting the Resistance base almost makes out the First Order to be too good at what they do. I like the idea of them being almost like children trying to take each others toys away. SKB destroys the Republic, and then the Resistance destroys SKB out of spite and revenge.

Just my 2 cents

Don’t worry, I don’t think anyone will ever think the First Order are good at anything after…

Star Wars: a series famously without any retcons before Disney took over.

OK, just to burst you bubble (Unless that was sarcasm, in which case I apologize but its hard to tell from text) but I’m sure you recall the Special editions came out before Disney. Also The Emperor anyone? Like between ESB and ROFJ he got a hell of a make over.

Retcon in the sense they just are random props in the background of ANH, nothing of value attached to them, and suddenly they get some kind of narrative meaning out of the blue, as if they meant something. Their use in TLJ already was kinda weak, in Solo it was just insufferable.

I’m calling for a vote on the name for that! Star Wars Sickness or Disney Disease?

Well he made the mistake of claiming he knows my address and that he would be coming to murder me. Doesn’t matter if the guy is in the USA or not, he threatened to kill a UK citizen. When this happens, it becomes a police matter. Several accounts using the same IP address have already been identified and they have been logged. The videos being posted and the fake adywan accounts, are all by the same guy, and so are most of the people commenting on his videos. So it’s up to me now whether i want to take this further legally or not.

SOLO: A Star Wars Story: Fan Edit Ideas - ** SPOILERS &amp; MAGIC INSIDE **
Time

Hal 9000 said:

lol, what the HELL is Darth Maul doing in a young Han Solo movie? I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I imagine that it is absurd as it sounds.

Basically, no-one in Hollywood knows how to make a movie these days without trying to copy some part of “Marvels Magic Formula”. And yes I know that Disney owns both but, the copyright owners have nothing to do with how that films should be handled. And handling a golden goose like the matured ugly duckling, just won’t cut this Swiss cheese of a movie, into a perfect slice of apple pie.
Still if they do go through with a Maul centered movie in the next few years I hope they can give him some character development.
As for the rest of Solo, I liked it for the most part but some of the jokes were pushed just to far. I need to re-watch it but the Han talking Wookie, while necessary could do with trimming to avoid the awkwardness. I couldn’t look at that think without think of that one seen from Fantastic Beasts, which was not a good memory to be reminded of. Also a few other bits but as I said I need to re-watch it.
