The visor didn't move, it just looks like that:

At first I thought you had a valid point, but upon closer inspection I noticed the grey 'nose guard' (highlighted in red) didn't change place. It's still hanging above his nose, not on it.

One has to keep in mind that in the first shot we're watching from more of a top angle (to his head/helmet) compared to the second shot. This means Luke's eye seems to be behind the top of the visor (like it would if he had the visor on and was being looked at straight).

*sigh*, I'm always struggling to get my images shown....here's a link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/loconut/4931920517/

I hope this explanation isn't too hard to understand, since it's all due to spatial visualization.

doubleofive said:

Yes, looking up and backwards in a helmet like that would push up the visor and leave it up when he turned around. Makes sense to me.

 

hmph... okay look...

here is the shot of Luke right after Dak dies.
his visor is fine.


here is Luke looking over his shoulder
his visor is fine (or so it looks to me)



here is Luke looking forward again
his visor is messed up.



Even if it's messed up already when he's looking over his shoulder, I still don't see when it could have messed up.

You're telling me that if you are wearing (sun)glasses while sitting in a chair, when you turn around your shoulder/the chair will push them up on your face such that they don't sit on your nose properly? I doubt it.

I still say it needs to be fixed.

Just following up with a comment that the NTSC single layer version does not play well on a PS2 at all. It has frequent pauses during the movie making it unwatchable. It looks good on it which is a shame since it pauses so much.

doubleofive said:

The PS2 makes for a crappy DVD player. I burnt out the drove of mine once, and Sony actually suggested I not watch so many DVDs on it.

I don't know why anyone still uses a ps2 to watch DVDs on. It's got to be one of the worse DVD players ever (along with the old XBOX). I watched 1 movie on my old one and the picture quality was so bad and it struggled to play the retail DVD. I couldn't believe that my £20 DVD player was so far superior to the PS2


I've been having issues with getting my home DVD player to successully play some attempts I've been making at burning this, but my ps2slim plays it fine with zero issues every single time.

Definite changes include:

*Tried to remove all close ups in Jabba's Palace that show a muppet-looking creature.  This includes ALL close ups of that stupid pet jabba has with the annoying laugh.  (sorry, I don't know his name.)  


Aww, but I think the muppet-aliens look alot more organic than the CGI ones. Especially Sy Snoodles.

And I like Salacious Crumb. He's cute in a demented sort of way.

Yes, but it didn't look like it was messed up/messing up in the first shot of him looking behind. Those two shots are one right after the other. Sure he could fix it again later when no one is watching, but I didn't see it move up in the first place. The scene goes from the visor being fine when Luke looks forward, to Dak dying and Luke looking back (with it still looking fine, though he is at an angle so maybe it's hard to tell kinda), to Luke looking forward again and it's messed up. There's no cut away for it to to have happened off screen.


Also, when Luke goes to Degobah, right after Luke says "You're lucky you don't taste very good," the panel in R2's head (that shortly afterward spews mud from it) can be seen ajar/popped open slightly before mud ever comes out.




One might argue that it had already popped open previously off camera and R2 can't close it yet because of the mud, but I always saw it as a glaringly obvious set-up for an upcoming effect (akin to seeing the bad covering of the breakable elevator door in the Death Star in ANH.) Like, you know that it's coming because that panel is messed up and so your eyes are drawn to it, making the effect less surprising.

What do you think? Ought this to be fixed? I would sure appreciate it if it was.

I didn't read if you had already mentioned/fixed this already, but during the AT-AT attack on Hoth when Dak Ralter (Luke's gunner) is killed, Luke turns his head to look behind him and it appears that his yellow visor is on correctly as is in previous shots.



However in the shot immediately following, when he looks forward again, his visor is messed up (it's up too high.)




This would seem to be a continuity error. Have you discussed/fixed it yet?

Ady,

I have to say that, having downloaded both the .avi and the DVD-9 version of ANHR, it confused me at first when I watched the DVD after the .avi, and noticing the hand in the cantina instead of the flipper which was in the .avi.

Not that that I'm complaining. Either way works, really. It's just that, after I saw the hand, I came back to this thread and read the list of changes/fixes on your first post... where I read that it did indeed mention Ponda's "hoof" as you put it instead of Evazan's hand. It had me scratching my head for a while trying to figure out if I had an older version of the DVD (since the list mentions Ponda, not Evazan) until I ran a search for "Ponda" in this thread and found a post you made about it quite a way into the thread where you said you'd make both for the DVD and use whichever looked better.

What I'm trying to say is: Since the DVD versions use Evazan's hand, and your first post says Ponda's hoof/flipper, it might behoove you to edit your first post (and also perhaps the cutlist on fanedit.org) to reflect that and alleviate confusion by others in the future.

Worst Edit Ideas

When Luke's hand gets sliced off, his Lightsaber doesn't extinguish, causing it to at some point slice through the power source for the antigrav generators which hold Cloud City up, which promptly plummets to its doom.

....back on Degobah...

Obi-Wan: *facepalm* "I told you he was our last hope. Now what?!"

Yoda: "Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not..."

Obi-Wan: "Oh, shut up."

Also, off topic for a bit... with regard to RotJ SE, I really hated the new CGI Jedi Rocks sequence altogether. It was the one thing that ruined the SEs most for me, above all else.

If/when you do RotJ:R, Ady, I would VERY much prefer the original theatrical Lapti Nek complete with the muppet Sy Snoodles. All of the newly added characters are superfluous and annoying at best, so to use SE video footage there even if you change the audio (as ADigitalMan has done) just doesn't cut it. Not even close.

[continuation of increasingly fruitless rant]

 

BmB, give it a rest already.

Adywan is making a creative decision of his own (of which I personally would freely accept either outcome that resulted from it.)

Maybe the Star Destroyer was going to try capturing the ships; maybe it wasn't, and Lucas and company left out a detail wherein it ought to have been firing; maybe you ought to watch that whole scene from ESBR in its full context first; or maybe Adywan is the man and you should count your blessings that he is making this fan edit at all.


My point is -- why is it such a big deal? Sure, you disagree. We understand that. It's unnecessary to beat a dead horse though.

I love this fan edit very much, but am also interested in the "purist edition" of it.  However, the torrent copy I have found of the purist edition does not have any seeders (my download has stopped with 252MB remaining), and I don't know if there is a .dlc of it for download from rapidshare or elsewhere.

 

Can someone help me out?
