natedeug's The Last Jedi Polished edit V3 (FINAL)
Time

After a few months taken to reflect further on the movie, I can now present a, hopefully, final Version 2 of my edit. Below are the changes I’ve made for v2. I think the result is much more “polished” now. I have an MP4 available for those who would like one, and will have a DVD5 soon.

• Cut BB-8 spinning around to get Finn’s attention before showing him the recording of Rey
– Also cut Finn thanking BB-8 for recording that moment, as a hand can be seen moving BB-8. Scene now ends on Finn’s thoughtful face looking at the transmitter, hard cut to black as he opens the locker and tries to leave.
• Kept little casino character using BB-8 as a slot machine, but cut the belching. This is necessary because later we hear BB-8 rolling around with change in his innards.
• Cut clothes iron “landing scene”, now cuts from mutiny to deleted infiltration scene
• Infiltration scene lacks long room with Ralph Ineson following our heroes suspiciously. This removes the unfinished roof effect as well as the man moving BB-8 around. Also cut exchange between Stormtrooper and Finn in the elevator. Now Finn straightens the clothes of DJ and Rose, puts a waste basket on BB-8’s head, and the scene resumes as in the movie, on the long shelf next to the elevators with the black droid spotting them.
• Movie ends as in theatrical release. As much as I wanted to end on the Falcon shot and include a mid-credits broom boy, it just doesn’t work out. The ending is too fast.

Can’t help but notice that in the sunset picture, the thing on top of the moisture vaporator changes, but nothing else in the frame does. What happened there?

That’s only because the image was taken just a couple frames apart. So the moisture vaporator has a small spinning thing on top. What I’m trying to show is the slight change in color from the color correction I applied, which has pretty drastically reduced the magenta skin tones I was getting from the source.

I’m working on an edit of Episode III that removes the birth of Vader and the naming of the twins. I believe I’ve found a satisfactory means to this end, which subsequently also removes the death scene of Padme while keeping her death intact. This could easily be reworked to keep Padme alive in conjunction with The Other Boleyn Girl scene.

Lemme know what you think: Leaving Mustafar / Children’s Fate

I like the idea a lot, I would be happy to take a look at it. I know RogueLeader is coming up with a full saga edit to remove as many plot holes, etc. So I like the idea of sitting down and watching it from start to finish!

PM sent. I didn’t know about RogueLeader’s saga edit? I’ll have to hunt it down.

JEDIT: Oh, duh. Yes I’ve been checking in on the collaborative edit. Is removing the birth of Vader in the works over there?

Makes sense, I suppose. No problem about it from me.

Hey, thanks. I mean, this honestly only makes sense in my own obsessive nitpicky sort of way. But, I figured, if I was going to spend time to splice these edits together, I should at least make it available. And it seems that the obsessive nitpicking is kind of central to this forum anyway.

Have to admit that what I’m doing feels a bit like:

But I feel I was able to insert TM2YC’s edits seemlessly enough.
