That would be great to get a hand on those. Rogue one is still my favorite of the “new” Star Wars movies and I just want to keep perfecting it piece by piece. Lol.

does anyone have an edit of the full movie with the deep fakes added?

We are all workin on it lol. Maybe I’m a week or two.

So looking forward to seeing a proper Leia in Rogue One along with a better Tarkin, but THAT Leia, wow!
Hope to see a fandit about with just those deepfakes added and the rest of the film untouched. 😬🤞

Nice! How are you going with the edit?
I would love to see that!

Just a heads-up to anyone who wants to use my implementation of the deepfakes, I’ve encountered an issue with the clips I’ve rendered having slightly altered colors, giving the clips a slightly green tint. I have re-rendered all of them with different color settings.

Here’s a comparison of all the new clips vs. the previous ones:

The clips are being reuploaded to the same place as before, on a new folder to avoid confusion.

anyone who is looking for these in a fan edit can check out Hal 9000 rogue one edit as he has updated with these deepfakes care of Burbin

much gratitude, Tarkin and Leia look pretty much like they should now! Love this

Forgive me if this has already been done or is included in Burbin’s release but I can upscale these clips to 4K and clean them up even more if people want it (I’ll be doing it anyways for my own Rogue One edit lol). I’m only judging this off of the above vimeo link, just to be clear.

The previews I uploaded on vimeo are of a much lower quality than the rendered clips. If you’d like to improve the clips further I could send you the link to the full quality clips.

I’ll be very interested whenever someone integrates the Luke deepfake into mando! I will say just from the clip peasent provided, there are a few ideas to further edit/improve the look (although its very impressive already):

I think some subtle color correction on the face could go a long way.

Maybe something could be done opacity-wise to bring some of the stubble in the original back to luke’s jawline to bring some age.

After everything a slight layer of sharpening might help with the deepfakes “softening problem”.

The resting position of his lips are also uncanny when he speaks but I doubt anything can be done with that.

In fact maybe there could be an attempt to merge the original and deepfake like Tarkin, by overlaying them together (keeping the lower part of his face the same and using the deepfake on the nose up). Most people just have a problem with his eyes which the DF fixes but it cant do the lip sync like the original.

Just some thoughts lemme know what you guys think im obviously not a VFX artist.

This is the way.

I am super interested in this as well! I reached out to Shamook a while back and didn’t get a response (possibly just that they are busy or that it’s a pretty large YouTube channel now).

If someone successfully gets in touch or directs Shamook here we should maybe alert people here? I’m betting since these deepfakes started dropping on YouTube (and I agree, Shamook’s are often the highest quality) that they have gotten a deluge of emails and DMs from fan editors! Probably would be a help not to have a chunk of the forums here spamming them.

Hey all, Shamook here.
I was just googling myself and came across this thread. It’s really nice and refreshing to see so many people enjoying my videos. Sorry if I never responded to your emails or messages, I just don’t have the time to get back to everyone unfortunately. I think I got 300+ emails about the Mando deepfake.
Let me know if there are any specific things I might be able to provide you guys with; extra scenes, different video formats etc
Also I can verify I’m definitely Shamook if that’s necessary.
Cheers.

Hey Daniel, your name looks familiar, I think I’ve since you comment on my videos before.
Always nice to interact with fans 😃

Like I say, if there’s anything I can provide you guys with like high res files rather than the compressed YouTube versions, any extra scenes I might have laying around, or I saw someone mention something about bad fps. Please let me know, I’m more than happy to help where I can.
Or even if you guys have any suggestions for any Star Wars deepfakes you might want to see.

Star Wars has so much potential for fun as well as playful deepfakes.

One related idea is Tarkin during his one shot in ROTS.

Yes! I was rewatching all the movies lately around the time you release a recut of rogue one and you used the redid deepfake and it had me thinking.

Tarkin at the end of Rots should look like he does in Rogue one, right?

What, no Turkey?!

I know we’ve identified that the young Luke and Leia scenes in TROS are recomposited images from the OT as opposed to digital assets like Rogue One’s Leia and Tarkin, but a deepfake pass on them might help smooth them out a bit?

How about deepfakin Ewan McGregor’s real beard into his dreadful fake beard on those AotC reshoots?

Would be similar to what you did to Cavill’s removed mustache, I gather.

I’d be quite glad to have my work be rendered useless if Shamook could provide source quality files of the Leia/Tarkin deepfakes, as well as the missing Tarkin shots where I used other sources that are of notably lower quality.

There are 24 clips of Tarkin and 1 of Leia in that dropbox folder.
They should be original film resolution and quality.

Can you let me know which Tarkin shots that you used other sources on, my file management is terrible and I may have them somewhere.

Removing a moustache is much easier than adding a beard.
When you introduce large amounts of hair to a deepfake, the amount of detail the software needs to learn jumps enormously, that’s why you don’t see full head deep fakes just yet, mainly because of the hair.

Wow, fantastic! I used other sources for shots that weren’t included in your Youtube video, so taking a look at your files and going off from memory I believe they are shots 02, 05, 09, 15, 16, 17 and 23 (couldn’t find any source for this one). So it looks like they’re all here!

If we are talking about Leia’s young face in TROS, a simply adding texture to her face would fix the entire shot. That’s the only issue in my opinon, her skin is too flat.

What, no Turkey?!
