Star Wars Episode I: Age of the Jedi (The Phantom Menace Fan Edit)
Time

Interesting take on the story. Though it’s very clear that people are speaking French in this edit complete with French accents. Now if that doesn’t strike you as weird, ok. But consider audio reversing the dialogue that is pitch shifted down so it cannot even be understood as French. You don’t have that luxury with the Gungans but you could also use something other than French for them. For a TROS edit I did, I audio reversed and reprocessed the sound of a weird cat from YouTube to use as the voice of Boolio. IMO it would be awesome if they were all no longer speaking understandable French.

I didn’t care for TROS, but your trailer was amazing. I would love to get a link! Thank you.

Hey thanks very much. I did put some effort into that trailer. I attribute it to jonh, Hal 9000, axlanian, and many others. Without their efforts, the finale of the movie wouldn’t have been what it is! PM sent.

StarkillerAG, thanks for the feedback. I can tweak the shake for sure. I just don’t want it to look like George Lucas spun the camera around like Star Trek not so special tv FX.

Skybatman, no I don’t plan on using footage from Rogue One except maybe for anything they may have lifted directly from the OT such as firing up the Death Star. The idea of this edit is enhancing or replacing the existing scenes of ANH and really not to add new ones.

Watched it. It was pretty good overall, certainly replacing everything we got so far in the visual department. Builds, lighting, color, added VFX, all stellar.

I like the limited inclusion of the narration but they very last one does not work. “I don’t know why he saved my life…” in the corridor does not work, ruining the tension of the scene while seemingly belonging to the one before. If this is included, it should be on the roof. Maybe just re-use some of the shoots of Ford sitting there, breathless, while it plays.

That Pris’ dossier is missing is kind of a shame, since we loose the peversity of her being a pleasure model that way. Removing Zhora is fine. Cannot figure out how to do both at the same time though myself…

Oh yeah, and Subtitles would be cool 😃

Videmaster, thanks for watching and the feedback! I did miss the pleasure model cut, played with keeping it in as V.O. but ultimately decided otherwise. I wanted to reduce the importance of the dossiers, and not have three full dossiers and just none for Zhora. I guess in my future edits, I’ll start off with subtitles in my project. That way it’s easy to just edit them (cut, move) along with the scenes.

This project is making progress. Here’s a link to a rough clip of the Death Star destruction sequence from A New Hope Enhanced Edition: https://streamable.com/xavx4z

It’s rough, and not all the foley is finished, but the changes to this clip are below:

Color corrected X-Wing thrusters from pink to red
When Vader’s TIE-Fighter spins out of control added shake and rattle
Added a shot of the two X-Wings splitting off and heading toward Yavin
Added Yavin into the composition for the Death Star explosion, camera slowly zooms in toward the debris

For TROS there is no way around the spirit transfer ritual. It’s an integral part of the plot, so discussion of its removal is moot.

Except you could easily make it so that sucking the lifeforce of the dyad was Palpatine’s plan all along, allowing you to remove any mention of soul transfer.

You can cut any scene you want in a fanedit (such as the Sith ritual). But this can have consequences… the required cutting of other scenes. The logical consequences of cutting the ritual ends with no Knights of Ren fight and Kylo Ren abruptly appearing with Rey, and armed with a lightsaber. The ritual is less bad than what you would end up with removing it.

Has anyone had any trouble with the password for his zip file?

I did a test download of the file myself. Note the 7z is 8.53 GB. If you got a partial download it won’t open at all. If you open it using the 7z app on a pc it will decrypt fine. On a mac instead of using the standard archive utility, which doesn’t support encryption correctly, use a utility like keka to open it (https://www.keka.io/en/). I tested it with keka on a mac and it decrypted successfully.

enjoy!
