I was supposed to return to work last Saturday but 80% of my staff caught Covid from Fridays event and we had to close before I even got to run my event. I can’t do anything until I can return to work and afford a new computer unfortunately.

Yeah, we all used video co pilot plug-in. It’s awesome but a nightmare to get all the layer effects looking good as it’s a frame by frame task plus animating masks. I can’t even open after effects to give someone my settings. Sorry!

I appreciate those getting in touch and asking after me but life really sucks right now.

wow Sorry to hear that MR hope things get better for you soon, Take are and look after yourself

Episode I: The Eyepainter Fanedit * v3 1080p and 720p now online * (Commentary a WIP)
Time

Hi Eyepainter, Would first like to say thank you for sharing your edit with me.

Well just finished watching your edit and wow I really enjoyed it (Not that I had any doubts that I wouldn’t), I loved the pacing and the way it all flowed all smoothly. The colour grading was also awesome and somehow gave the movie a nice fresh feeling.
I loved the edition of puppet Yoda as it is something I haven’t seen since viewing it originally at the cinema when TPM was released, Only the slightest of gripe is the scene where with Anakin fighting a young Greedo looking alien but that said the alternate scene with Jar Jar isn’t exactly any better.

Thank you once again Eyepainter, Looking forward to checking Episode II out later this week.

Digitally extracted stereo audio tutorials?
Time

Hi James76, I only just posted on a thread (mkv to MP4) about a program call avidemux. It should do what you are looking for, once a video file is loaded in press on the audio tab and then select track, another screen will come up showing available audio sources, select the one you want (you can leave as is or configure it to downmix or change codec) simply press ok the select save audio set your destination and file name.

Hope that helps you out.

I would like to say thank you to for sharing your amazing edits of Man of Steel (Son of Krypton) and Justice League (God’s of Earth) I watched both edits yesterday and all I can say is wow I wish that these got an official release instead of what we got, everything flowed together very smoothly and the cuts made more sense as they were much easier to follow. That said I am very excited for this edit and recommend Krausfadr’s to any DC Universe fan.

Thanks for sharing your edits once again👍

New links are now live on the wordpress site

Awesome, thank you Adywan.
😁Downloaded ESB:R (1080) and day booked off work for viewing, I have been looking forward to seeing this ever since Retroblasting did a YT video on your edits of ANH:R and ESB:R.

Thank you not just for your amazing work but for sharing it with everyone, Feels like Christmas but better😁.

Star Wars Episode II: The Approaching Storm (Released)
Time

DrVibble said:

Hi Hal, here’s my next review.

I absolutely loved this edit. AOTC is probably my second-least favourite SW film (TPM being my least favourite), as it’s just so painful to watch. But this edit simply transforms the film, and for the first time in my life, I got genuine, even considerable enjoyment out of watching Episode 2.

I’ll start with the biggest part: the romance plot. This was the biggest improvement of The Approaching Storm for me; where this romance was previously fatal levels of cringe, it now comes across as genuinely quite endearing. The largest factor to this is of course the way you re-arranged the scenes, giving the whole romance a far more belivable and compelling development. Even the cringey-but-inescapable scenes like the tick-cow ride and the floating pear dinner come across as much less painful than before because they flow much better, they feel more believable. Moving the kiss to the end of the romance arc, and removing the oh-so-infamous sand monologue, raised the sub-plot as a whole by a considerable amount. I will say that the musical transition out of the kiss scene to Obi leaving Kamino felt quite abrupt, but that’s pretty much my only problem. Although, I can’t help but notice that after the kiss at sunset, the next time we see the two is in their pyjamas the next morning…

My next favourite part was Anakin’s improved characterisation. It’s incredible the impact a few removed lines and some re-arranged scenes can have, but Anakin comes across so much more mature in TAS. I particularly loved his trimmed conversation with Padme (“Master Obi-Wan manages not to see it.” “All mentors have a way of seeing more of our flaws than we would like. It’s the only way we grow.” “I know.” This just flows soooo much better, and it’s such a simple change at that) and the now wordless embrace before Anakin leaves to find his mother. It says so much more about their growing relationship, and is more emotional.

The deleted scenes sprinkled throughout were all great, particularly Padme’s Senate address, which combined with the brilliant new opening crawl (despite how many times I’ve seen AOTC I still can’t remember a single part of the crawl, but this one jumped off the screen) was a very efficient and effective opening. Padme’s family was a far superior scene to the convo with the Queen (that scene always bugged me because you can see a very clearly contemporary building right outside the Queen’s window). The brief conversation with Anakin, Padme and Dooku raised one very interesting line: “The Republic cannot be fixed.” I felt that one line adds a whole new element to the political plot of the PT; though the Separatist movement is a smokescreen for the Sith, that line is actually still completely true. Food for thought. The scene between Obi-Wan and Windu on the landing platform did come across as quite wooden, hence why it was probably excised, but it’s much better story- and character-wise than the Jedi Temple convo with Obi, Windu and Yoda.

There are too many other things I loved about this edit to list here (the more focussed third act, the clever way you cut the factory set piece to have Anakin free Padme, less grating presence of Boba, generally improved action throughout), and I can only really think of a handful of small problems: the intercut nature of the romance plot with Obi’s investigation could feel like a bit too much of a juxtaposition (though this’ll likely fade with future watches), the aforementioned abrupt musical transition out of the kiss, and I felt that the cuts to get around Yoda v Dooku were a bit (unavoidably) clunky. In short, I think this is a miracle of an edit, a permanent replacement of AOTC. Awesome work!

I hope I’m not laying it on too thick here, I just really loved this edit.

+1 from me DrVibble and beautifully put. I think anyone new or who hasn’t yet seen Hal’s amazing prequel trilogy edits should give them a viewing if or when they have chance. They are my go to versions of the prequels.

Hal has also done some amazing edits of the O/T and S/T that are also with checking out, you won’t be disappointed believe me.

Awesome news, Thank you Doubleofive. I have seen some amazing edits of the O/T but haven’t managed to get hold of Adywans revisited edits of Anh and Esb and with rotj being done it will be good to be able to view these😁.

This is my first time seeing the thread for this edit and all of the ideas are great - echoing arabian, is it still being worked on?

I thought I’d always dislike the concept of adding Palpatine to TFA and TLJ, but the ideas for doing it presented here are very clever and have convinced me on it. I’d love to see them put into action.

+1👍

<em>Star Wars</em> Fan Edit Discussion Thread
Time

I haven’t seen any of Adywans edits as of yet as by the time I had even heard and got into viewing the fanedits he had already started his Revisited-HD.

Over the last couple of months tho I have been very fortunate to be able to view edits by Hal9000, Captain Faraday, Eyepainter, Digmodification and Poppasketti and I will say that what they have done and achieved is nothing short of remarkable, After buying the Blu Rays I honestly felt let down and annoyed but after seeing what the fans have done🤯 it has totally renewed my interest in Star Wars again.
