EPV is now 99.9% complete… almost there.

I have also completed a re-do of EPIV (the sound was a bit of an issue). If anyone missed out on seeing it from me a PM.

I’ve been tinkering with the EPV artwork and can’t decide which to go with. Any opinions would be appreciated.

Meesa Back!

Apologies for the massive break, a combination of things including a massive relocation, a new job, a Final Cut Pro update screwing up my audio channels and just losing the hunger after 4 episodes.

Anyway, the thirst is back and episode V is nearing completion. I’ve just reviewed a second completed cut and it’s looking close. I’ll have a trailer done in the next week.

For those that didn’t manage to download EPIV, I still need to review my edit, having corrected the audio channel issues. I will be releasing that before episode V, so there will be chance to catch up.

Thanks for your patience.

Another repeating scene;

1:33:45 and 1:03:29

I’m not sure if this was supposed to be intentional or not. They were edited differently so it’s possible you meant for them to be different but similar scenes. Either way, it took me out of it.

That was very intentional. Essentially one scene cut in half and used seperately. It was required in order to better link Mandalore and Geonosis. Not perfect, but it was the best I could do with the material.

I’m about halfway done with Episode IV, and so far I’ve encountered no major problems. I do have some minor complaints, though;

Obi-Wan’s reaction at 23:58 seems out of character and unreasonable

The shot at 1:13:20 was already used at 1:08:25

I’ll be sure to update if I come across any more.

I agree about Obi-Wan’s reaction, but that is how it was done in the actual series and it really needs to be in there to show how strong his feelings for Satine are.

Great catch on the reused shot! Not sure how I missed that one!

Just a quick remark: you should ask someone to read your opening crawl next time 😃 (“seperatist”).

And it seems there is the same technical issue present on your other episodes, some kind of frame slow-down in speed for transitions wipes. I don’t know if it’s intentional or an editing issue (i.e. something you can’t correct).

edit: a little bit more important: I’m afraid you’ve made an error when you’ve imported the 5.1 audio track:

  • channel 1 is front left
  • channel 2 is front right
  • channel 3 is center
  • channel 4 is the basse (0.1)
  • channel 5 is rear left
  • channel 6 is rear right

I think you’ve interverted 2/3 and 4/5.

The frame slow down in some of the wipes is intentional. Its usually when I’m creating a transition between 2 separate stories. The cuts are often too abrupt, so I have to slow the speed down slightly to create a wipe.

As for the channels, I’ve just checked and you’re absolutely right.
I work with the standard channel set up in Final Cut Pro and I have the audiobars visible whilst editing, so they are definitely correct, however, Compressor has exported the channels in the L C R Ls Rs LFE order. How bizarre.

Quick update on this. Life has been pretty busy the last few months but I’ve finally broken the back of this. Just need to manufacture 2 scenes to help link the 2 separate storylines together. The rest is done.

Here are a few clips

  1. Showing how I’ve cut out most of “Voyage of Temptation” to speed up the first act.

  1. This shows how I’ve intercut Duchess of Mandalore and Senate Spy

  1. Here I’ve intercut Legacy of Terror and Brain Invaders so that the 2 episodes occur simultaneously.

I’m now working on the trailer.
