This all looks pretty great! In the area of making Vader more consistent across the Saga, are you familiar with what joshua_blue did for the “Stronger Vader” cut of ANH:R? (https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/ANHR-Stronger-Vader-edit-Released/id/13462/page/1)

There is a lot there that I think would go nicely with what you’re working one. Just a thought!

The sound mix in your opening is quite loud and doesn’t flow well from the tale of the fanfare into the rest, it is very clear that something is up to me. And when the soundeffects from the RO: vader scene are heard, I can hear that they’re mixed into the ANH soundscape from another source.

Hello, and thank you for the feedback. I’m almost done with another version of the edit and I have taken all feedback into consideration on this one. I’m working hard to get all of it right and hopefully I can get an official page on fanedit.org with this one.
I was not familiar with the edit you mentioned. I took a look at the post. It seems interesting, but I think I’m too far along with it at this point.

I need a little help with the plot of this edit here. So I show Finn with the tracker that Rey uses to find the resistance. How to handle this after that can be done in 3 ways that I can think of.

  1. As you see in the video, I can try to piece together something that shows Finn passing it onto Poe. This is because I really wanted to cut out the sub-plot that goes absolutely nowhere.

  2. I can just not worry about it, we know someone has it and just cut the scenes that hearken back to the tracker from the point that Finn has it.

  3. My least favorite option, but I can live with it. I do something like Sobo Films did and just make Rose the code-breaker and skip the whole Canto Bight stuff and bring Rose and Finn right to the ship and take care of them being tracked. This may also make Rose a bit more likable because I am still going to cut her using the cattle prod on people.

I couldn’t get a good enough shot of Kylo Ren to use in the edit, so I am going to switch out that shot for some Hux footage that I was going to delete and it looks great! No more goofy face…

I finished up the new music and sound fx on the Finn waking up part of the movie for those who have seen my edit. I am now working on Rey meeting Luke for the first time.

BTW… Without spoiling anything for ROS in theaters right now. There was nothing setting Rey up for this in any of the other movies, so I will be going and doing a TFA edit (eventually) and I think I can adjust the force vision she has to drop a hint or 2 there so Episode 9 doesn’t feel so out of place.

Hi again everyone. I am still working on the 2nd version of the cut of this movie and I think I have the opening set up that I need. Again, this is me trying to clean up the audio. So I am replacing some music to help flow from once scene to another. I added back in some special fx. This is the result and let me know what you think. I was already approved on the cut from the Star Wars traditional music to the cut of the new music as we pan in on the ship, so now I’m working on the transition to the Deleted Scene with Poe.

Hi lantern51,

watched your recent clip suggesting the sound transition and here is my feedbacK: How about instead of transitioning from the opening flute to the second track to just cut it from the flute to the drums. So in other words leaving the opening flute until second 19 or 20 of your sample clip and cut it immediately into the tam tada tadam drums. I hope that was somewhat understandable? 😄

I think I get what you mean lol… Thanks. I will work on it 😃

Hi guys! I know that I have been away for a while. I have been working about 55 hours a week, then I had some family issues that I had to take some time for. Then I have been busy on fanedit trying to re-work this edit. I still have online links to the original edit that has been commented on by people who have seen it. But I’m trying to make it better and following the advice as best I can of other editors.

The first thing that I have to work on is the sound transition into the first scene change that I made in the movie. So I wanted to try and change up the music as idea presented to me by Didgmod. This is my first attempt at new music from one of the games. I know there is a "click at 12 seconds in and I did not add the “whoosh” sound FX yet. I’m looking to see if I can get the audio transitions right first. Let me know if this works for you guys!

I am currently in the process of uploading what I hope will be the final version of this cut. This time, nothing is dropped in and has been worked over to flow with the rest of the movie. I also added my own cut of the SC 38 footage. I will make a cut/change list and post it in the future.

On a personal note, I got a reminder that in a month, my annual subscription for my editing software is due. So that means that next month I will have been editing for 1 year. I have never done it before then. I was inspired by some fan edits of The Force Awakens. So I gave it a try and taught myself how to use the software and how to do different editing tricks. My edit; The Last Jedi: A Spark of Hope, was the result of everything I have learned up to this point.

I hope you will enjoy my work. Let me know what you all think, and yes I’m always open to constructive criticism. I don’t know everything and other people have great ideas that I wouldn’t have thought of.

OK, quick update on V3. I had a hard time finding the line I needed to re-dub a spot, so I recorded it myself. I then ran it through a few filters to smooth it out and fit with the rest of the audio. So now I’m working on the score and then she is done. Score takes me some time because I’m very picky about setting the right mood. Those who have seen my cut of TLJ know this.

Still working out the kinks in V3. I need to re-dub a line of dialog and then work on the score a bit. Then I will be able to get that out to you guys.

Thanks for all the support you guys have given me. My Last Jedi edit was the first time I really brought my work out to the public and you have all been great. With only that one movie out, you guys were backing me on this project right away and I can’t think you guys enough. I promise that the V3 is the edit that you deserve and that going forward, I will have nothing but high quality for you all!

Ivan’s crowd appear to be largely TLJ haters- those who despise a vast majority of the changes made. That isn’t a bad thing in it itself, there are some people who think that here, and we all get to respectfully share our opinions. But when surrounded by a community that continues to hate upon hate you get into a situation where anything is better.

My assumption is the praise does not come out of the edit’s quality. The people are only interested in story. They don’t care if the audio is odd or the cuts on dough, or even if the story contradicts itself as long as it directly fixes their issues with Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson the edit is a masterpiece. If it creates new problems, eh who cares.

My greatest worry now is towards the children of those in this community. When (more likely if xd) their parents show them Star Wars for the first time, Episode 8 will be called “The Last Jedi Re-Edit”. 😦

Lol He didn’t think to give it an appealing name. May as well just called it ‘The Last Jedi Fanedit.’

I agree people just WANT to like it because they hate the original. I personally thought the original was terrible, but I don’t hate it enough to accept this turd as a replacement.

Hahaha… I know. At least the people on here know how to name an edit. Before I started editing, I watched his stuff and thought that some of the ideas were fine. But when I watched it, I just found myself skipping around and feeling glad that I did my own edit lol.

Version 3 is coming. I think I have a cool idea for adding the R1 footage of Vader to this.

I’m working about 55 hours a week at my real job, and working on an edit of TFA. So be a little more patient. The link to V2 is still available…

I’m definitely interested in checking out another way to incorporate R1 Vader footage!

It wasn’t easy because yours was freaking perfect! The lever being pulled and then cut to C3-PO was too good not to use in my version. But I’m working to make it different enough. There is only so much you can do to make it work.
