Looking forward to ANH!!! Ever since KK650 has stepped away and finding out about your semi specialized versions they’ve been my go to. Plus I agree with your changes more. Can’t wait!!!
No problem, I know it’s on of those weird movie things that just happens to be. That’s why I suggested it to be used as a alternate track with other alternate dialogue ideas that have come forward if you thought of going through with it. Just thought it be a cool continuity feature.
Hal Im glad I thought about this before you finished ANH, Being youre gonna go through the whole Wedge thing, Rouge Leader says “Red 6 do you see Red 5 ?” but it’s Wedge who responds “There’s heavy fire on that side, Red 5 Where are you?” Red 6 is Porkins who is already shot down. Adywan some how mocked up Rouge Leader saying Red 2. In the battle after Wedge says "Look at the size of that thing. You can use Red Leader "Cut the Chatter “Red 2” to fix that for your alternate track. Im sure that was the likely thing Ady did to do that fix.
Out of curiosity will this version on ESB have the cropped Falcon shot or the un cropped? I remember you inquiring about that a while back and noticed the cropped shot were used.
I don’t know if it would help. I don’t know how isolating mixes work but if this helps, Ady has Blast it Wedge where are you if you have it. It’s more along where it doesn’t sounds like Luke shouts the line “Blast it Wedge where are you?” in the mono, Its more of the tone “Blast it Biggs (Wedge) where are you?” in his. Just throwing that option out there.
When Anakin get capture you probably could remove the arena shot and go straight into the negotiations with Dooku like it would ve been intended if George kept that sequence in because if my memory serves you use that arena shot twice before the interrogation and like the original before they say I love you?
Gotcha Hal. 😉
So I’ve come up with another idea which is from Adywans edit. I know it’s been expressed you don’t want it to reflect to much of his version but just thought I bring it forward. The Death Star Countdown to destroy Yavin, would that be a supposed thing to tackle???
One thing is unfortanly missing is the Roadshow version of Daisy messing up Jim Jones Botney Bay.
I can confirm that his shot of the falcon are cropped.
Maybe when season 7 rolls around it’ll get you hype and maybe want to try again. Sometimes when something I lose interest in and over time something involving that thing makes a comeback my hype gear gets going and I’m loving it all over again.
I’m absolutely loving this. Great work my good Sir Ridley!!!
Was only able to check the file for playability before I left for work, but is anyone else having aspect ratio issues (2.40:1 vertically stretched to 1.78:1) or is that just MPC-HC/something else on my end?
It’s not only you I just downloaded it and it’s that way for me on MPC-HC as well. That’s how I prefer watching my movies as well. Maybe it’s some kind of glitch???
The Blackened Mantle (1080p) and ROTJ Ziggy Edit, I’ve messaged him and he never got back to me.
Something that came to mind watching that recent lightspeed footage from inside the cockpit and watching Adywan’s. I notice you see the blue lighting effect from the lightspeed light lighting up the cockpit. Watching Adywan’s edit I notice how he also applied it on the shot Han say’s “Stand by Chewy here we go, cutting the sublight engines.” It would be cool tp see that effect continuity in the edit.
That’s so cool! Can’t wait to see it all come together.
As rough concept it’s understandable where and how you want to try it. I like it.
I was only talking on having them exit. Like you say Vader establishes them going on hyperspace. Use the overhead shot of falcon passing towards Yavin prime, but have a quick lightspeed exit animation to where it transition to seeing yavin prime. You’d have the same order of shots.
What route do you plan on doing for getting them out of lightspeed ? I never liked how Adywan changed the order of shots because I’m use the original order, even though I understand why he did the way he did it. If you’re open to an idea I got one.
Well maybe the celebration is all the scum and villainy Ben speaks of coming together. They’re all celebrating that fact they can commit crime and gang related stuff again without the Empire getting involved lol. Maybe everyone is also celebrating the Death of Jabba lol. It’s funny when you think outside the box on stuff sometimes lol.
In my head cannon the ending the 97 version is my favorite of the ending. I seen one fan edit that had the the 04 version but somehow mute the “Wesa Free!”, and just used footage of Sebastian Shaw in place of Hayden. If it were me, that’s how I would honestly do it. I know most people say oh the Empire just didn’t suddenly fall with the Death of the Emperor and Death Star II. Which in a real reality that would be true. I only like that only because it adds world building to the Star Wars galaxy. The only downside to the 97 version is when Coruscant is shown, the Jedi Temple and Senate building aren’t present in the 97. More then likely just those building were ideas/concept at the time. Being the Phantom Menace was just in the pre production phase the time the Special Editions were done before filming that next year in 98. To me I find it pretty cool how George how the visual look of Coruscant just two years prior.
That’s awesome, it was just really a thought I had to bring to the table of your edit. I can’t wait to see it. Appreciate the shoutout. 😄
I was thinking about something watching some Episode IV fan edits. 2 scenes I have a question in particular. The Mos Eisley entrance. Various fan edits make the entrance seem choppy due to couple things being cut. Like the robot slapping the security droid and the jawas falling off the ronto. Mostly a lot of fan edits cut around the stuff. They dont like which it’s understandable as those two parts is very childish humor. The most favorable version of the scene edited in a good way to where it’s not so choppy is Adywan Revisited. So I was wondering how yours will be done.
The second scene I have a question about is “If the Ship is as fast as his boasting we ought to do well.” Something I’ve always found cool is with Adywan and KK650’s is they used a wipe with that shot and not the fade. It just seems natural and not weird being none of the other films have had a scene to scene fade transition to another shot. George took the fade away with the imperial spy fading to the docking bay stairs. More then likely he thought it being strange as well being to what I stated. Just thought I’d ask. Love your Custom Special Empire Strikes Back.
Will a MKV release of the 4k83 DNR version be released like the Non DNR 4k83 and the 4k77 projects ?
As talented of a team you have that helps you with these Im sure it could be done. What’s even more baffling they had thruster efx for the shots of the tie chasing Biggs in the SE. Also the efx of the thrusters are there when Wedge takes out the fighter after Luke. A bit faded but it’s there. You’d figure as close and we follow the tie for that couple seconds it would’ve been a no brainier for ILM. Something that always look weird to me lol.
