I’m aware that pcm is lossless but 5.1 pcm is huge overkill. 640 kbps ac3 is enough for a movie I think. Music is the only time lossless matters to me.

Audio is Audio my friend. My theater speaker setup is high end and believe me I can here the difference with double encoded Dolby Digital.

Yes it will because DD is more compressed than DTS to begin with so since it will have to be compressed again for the end product it makes sense to use the less compressed audio as the starting point, no?

I still haven’t fully decided if I’m even going with full 5.1 anyway. I might stick with dolby surround to make things simpler. Also That way recompresses will be less damaging as each channel will have more bitrate afforded it, and it will still upmix properly.

Right but what I am trying to point out, you wont loose anything if you convert the DTS to 5.1 or 7.1 PCM. Then Master it to PCM. (Blu ray) Sure it will take up more space but at least your not loosing anything. (PCM) (WAV) is lossless.

Well I’m having to start over again. I’ve been using womble to do the editing, but I’m going to have to leave it behind. I hate to do that because I love wombles extremely user friendly interface and I was able to make the seamless cuts I needed… Theoretically. The reason I’m giving up on it is because no matter what I do there is a very audible “pop” at cut points. It’s infuriating. Even if the fades and everything are set up to be seamless there’s still a big pop in the middle of the transition and while it doesn’t happen all the time when it does happen nothing I do will fix it. I hate it because I love wombles interface. So unless anybody knows a fix for that, I’m trying to get the hang of Adobe premiere. It’s a whole different world and I’m still trying to get the hang of it.

Yes but once you do, you will be a whole lot better off. I would also recommend you transcode all of your project footage to a non-lossey interm format. Will make you life a lot better. cc 2015 and 2017 support cineform . I highly recommend you start there. CC 2015 also supports DD multi channel audio support.

Well even womble supported 5.1 so I’m not worried about that. I will probably edit in 5.1 using six mono wavs sourced from the dts track, then export as 640 kbps DD ac3. (I think that would have less quality loss than using DD as a starting point.

not if you convert it to wav end output to PCM.

Star Wars Rogue One: Darth Vader chest plate Project announcement.
Time

Update:

–All of the Vader shots have added chest plate lights, and his mask eyes have been changed to match my IV 1.4 beta that is floating out there.

–Per SuperSecretMuffin request, I mixed in my death star firing shots from IV 1.4, flipped it and color corrected it to match the color tone of RO. I also reincorporated the original actors who were at the helm of the firing station mixed in both sequences from IV, from Both times the death star fired in RO. I am still playing a little with this because the pacing of RO of when the death star fires is a lot slower than in SW IV.

–HUD corrections. Most of the HUDs that show the death star in RO involve some type of countdown progress of it downloading, I need to spend more time the HUD that Andwan did, as I can not simply take what I did in IV 1.4 and insert it in RO. The Huds will need to be modified in some way to show a progress bar. This will take a little longer than I thought.

Future plans for IV… There is actually a lot of good stuff in RO that could be incorporated in IV, I might revisit it and replace some shots. (such as the Falcon approaching the death star, rebel base ect.)

Star Wars Rogue One: Darth Vader chest plate Project announcement.
Time

With the upcoming release of RO, I have made plans to correct the shots with Vader adding cg lights, and some minor shots with Laser Blasts that were not screen correctly. Overall this project should not take too long. I am still working thru rebels, very tedious so this will be a welcomed break…

List of Changes
Vader: Will restore his chest plate lights (blinking ones) once again to match my IV 1.02 beta that has been floating out there for the last few years… I also plan on darkening his mask eyes once again to match the Original and prequel trilogy’s “III, V-VI”. I understand why Disney did it the way they did because there version was suppose to match how things were bridging RO with epIV from a physical continuity perspective. (But this is a Fan edit, and it needs to match my personal fan edit of IV.

While I am sure there will be a lot of Fan edits and ideas out there, I plan on mainly just releasing my Master MOV Cineform files of the the shots I changed. Those shots should be considered useful for any fan editors out there that want to make changes the pacing of the film, and I know there will be a lot out there.

I will list more changes as I scrub though the film if needed… Any other suggestions can be posted here in this forum and I will take them into consideration…

Thanks…

RogueLeader said:

I agree a lot with ben_danger. If you don’t do white, I would still do a near-white of blue, green or yellow if you do change it. Although I do think KOTOR 2 does feature silver lightsabers, so they do exist in those games as well. The reason I would say keep it white/near-white is because, like others have said, it reflects her being unaffiliated with the Jedi or the Sith, which the Filoni & co. intended I believe. If you go near-white, maybe just a hint of a “Jedi” color would suggest her being still light side oriented.

Also, I’d also love to have the saber-copters removed. The issue, though, is that they seem heavily integrated into the finale episode, and trying to remove them might make the episode feel like there are gaps that should explain how the Inquisitors move around so quickly. The third inquisitor falling to his death due to his saber malfunctioning would also have to be changed. I wish the concept hadn’t have been introduced in the first place, but removing them may prove difficult.

Regardless of your decisions, I also wanted to say that I appreciate all the work you put into this. I know it’s time consuming but the final product is definitely professional quality.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong is there any point in season 2 where it was explained by a character why her sabers were white? I am a huge SWTOR fan I like have 5 characters in that game, since there is no clear distinct reference outside of a behind the scenes or a online media source from a producer I think I am going to stick with green. I just rendered her first sequence with green. There is no reason why she could not of stuck with her preferred color from the clone wars she was still a light side force wield knight so I would have to think she would have been able to find some green crystals after she left the order shortly before order 66. Filoni & co would have been vetoed on that one by George himself if he was still in the directors chair.

With that said, I will render alt scenes with her in with yellow if there is a fan preference so when I send it to mega and you pm for a link you can specify what color of saber you want.

As far as releasing the prior episodes, with my of my preferred torrent sites being shut down, I will have to post these episodes on a mega share. I will start uploading a few episodes. PM me for links. And interest.

Finally, a clear shot of Rogue One’s Darth Vader. So it seems that he will swap between having his inner tunic under the chest plate to over it throughout the movie. And the lenses don’t look red here either, like they did in the trailers.

Is there photographic evidence of the alternative?

This comes as an relief for me. His chest plate does looks vintage 1977, my only hope is that it lights up. If not, I will be once again “awakened” and busy next year.

STAR WARS REBELS: Season 2 : (project will begin early September 2016)
Time

Many of you know of my work with rebels season 1 where my focus was to thicken the light sabers to match more of what we saw in the clone wars series minus the pointy tips.

Season 2 I will begin re scoping all sabers in that series. Also Asoka will have 2 versions (of the film) of her saber to be either (YELLOW) or (GREEN). I have been playing a lot of STAR WARS: The Knights of the old republic in my spare time. The developers of the game feel a empty or neutral chamber is yellow vs just white. Although I plan having a green version of the film, I did miss some TV episodes so I not entirely clear on if the white color of her saber was addressed on the show from a character standpoint.

I am also on the fence on cutting the flying helicopter sabers from show all together because it just looks stupid. Not sure on the community thoughts on that… But it seems like Disney is trying to pull a “Mary Poppins”…

I will update this thread once I start, and give updates of my progress…

As for now I am enjoying a nice long summer vacation relaxing…

The Force Awakens Fan Edit Ideas - ** SPOILERS **

I agree with you, the TIEs should come from the stardestroyer in the background and also be far away so that it makes sense for the patrons not to run away. I would actually make them even smaller in that first shot of Finn looking to the sky. I would even go as far and make them really tiny white spots coming from the Stardestroyer and then about as big as they are in Telecines version for the second shot when Han and the patrons look up. But there also need to be some transports and in Telecines version they seem too ordered, which kinda makes them fake-looking I guess. I don’t really know how to fix that but I think some more variety in their movement/position could help.

+1

I am only following HAL’s 9000 direction. We went back and forth via PM of how to do this and his vision. My laptop can not handle element 3D very well where it was crashing AE and all of my compositions. So I was limited to using TIE cutouts from popular JPG files out on the internet. You can only manipulate a 2D image so much, so if I were to bring the TIE’s in any closer it would look Fake. Any ideas moving forth would be cool.

Hal I would recommend starting a new forum for this once you figure out a Title for your edit. This one is very old and General from way back when TFA was released last December.

I could probably do that, but imo removing Jar Jar altogether leaves a lot of key scenes on the cutting room floor, and it would probably make the cuts far too jarring for a smooth progression.

Unless you’re talking about physically rotoscoping him out, instead of cutting around him. In which case, I don’t think anyone here would have the patience to sit down and do all of that. It took me the better part of a week just to accurately rotoscope one scene of Dooku sighing from Episode II. Doing the same for all of Jar Jar would be a nightmare.

I am talking about rotoscoping him of course, anyone can buther a movie.

If a simple scene like that took you that long, you are either doing something wrong or using the wrong software, this little clip only took me like 10 minutes.

Link: https://vid.me/9xx8
(fyi, originally Jar Jar was present in this scene.)

I have made several other scenes like that, for example I removed little Anakin from some certain scenes. But like I have said, it is time consuming to do it for the entire movie and time is a luxury I no longer have.

I would love to help you but frankly I have moved on from the pre-quills and HAL’s 9000 cuts are just fine.

I can’t for the life of me remember, but someone on here was doing an edit with exactly this in mind. If this was indeed you I apologise, but surely someone must have removed Jar Jar from TPM by now?

Yeah, I am pretty sure that was me. I released several clips where I took out Jar Jar Binks from scenes without cutting out the scenes completely. (only one or two survived I’m afraid) I just couldn’t find an efficient way of doing it. Most of the time, background is static, so the method I used was to rotoscope him out of a scene and add motion tracking if the camera is moving. But since Jar Jar moves way too much, it takes way too much work at some scenes.

There are other people who removed Jar Jar Binks (or at least mostly) from TPM, but not the way I want it. They just cut down, otherwise perfectly fine scenes to do it. (there are already way too many scenes to be removed from the movie, I think we should try to save what we can from it.)

There is technology that can do complete removals now so this is very possible. Please see my Time code removals for TFA del scenes

It will be sad to lose you.

However, I have definitely been thinking the same thing, lately. Though it’s not related to the specific incident you describe, TFA brought in a huge influx of trolls and bigots. The latter have been especially loud in recent times, as they feel that they are standing up for themselves as the ‘anti-PC’, when 2+ years ago we would have just called them regular assholes (most of us still do). I still really like talking about the technical stuff with everyone here, but there’s no doubt that it’s becoming an increasingly unpleasant place. If I don’t leave, or at least take a break, I’ll probably see myself banned for a response of mine.

That’s partly the reason i need to take a step back away from this site. I’ve got a lot going on at the moment which is causing me a lot of stress. I have some serious financial problems that i can’t see being able to sort out any time soon. Then there is the added pressure of finishing the edit. People have waited way too long for me to finish this and i don’t want to keep disappointing them, especially when its so close to being finished. It is all getting on top of me. Coming here used to be a way for me to de-stress. To have fun and discuss topics with like minded people. But that seems to have gone lately. It’s one big argument after another and not in the fun way. I’m finding that its all just got too much for me and that i have started to find the slightest thing is making me feel angry and aggressive towards certain people. That is not me and i really don’t mean to be that way. The last time i felt this way was when my parents died and i snapped at the slightest thing and fell out with people who really didn’t deserve to be spoken to like i did at the time. If i don’t leave now i could end up saying or doing something i regret. Maybe if i can sort out the problems in my life i can go back to the way i was and not let all the crap happening here get to me so much. But something needed to be done.

But the last thing i want is for people to leave this site just because i’m stepping back. Hopefully the crap will stop. I love this site. i have had many great times here with everyone. A few bad apples wouldn’t usually make me feel the need to leave, but it has become just too much. Jay and all the mods here have always been nothing but fair and i apologise for my recent outburst. Something needed to be said though. But today will be my last day here. At least for the foreseeable future. I’d rather remember this site for all the good times and great people than for the crap thats been going on lately. It has nothing to do with newbies coming to the site, but more about the attitudes. we have had new members coming thoughout my time here and 99% of the time they have been welcomed with open arms. But now it seems like a majority of the latest influx is only here to be assholes. At least, in the past, when someone had gone too far with something they have said, they have apologised and let things move on. Hell, there have been many fallings out yet most seem to be able to be resolved quite quickly and things just moved on. now it seems that its one fight after another that just escalates and never dies. Not the best place for me to be right now.

so, i’m going to step back, finish this bottle of Southern Comfort and prey to vader ( i’m not religious 😉 ) that i can sort this financial shit out sooner rather than later and start feeling myself once again ( and not in an imperialscum doing his taxes sort of way 😉 )

ANDWAN,

To quote Ren in TFA, give me your master compiled video and “I will Finish what you started…”

I would not mind in helping you achieve your cut. I already am working on some compositing for HAL 9000 for his TFA Cut.

Hate to see you go but I understand why…
