Just an idea but what if you just slowed the tempo down slightly and gave it a bit more bass to indicate her using the dark side. Don’t know if it would be easier than changing the music or not tho.

P.S
Wow thank you Nev for the credit mention, Don’t feel like I deserve it tho only said your work looks amazing but happy to be mentioned either way😁.

Yeah, I’m trying to stick to music from the film wherever possible and I think I tried the darker music and felt that it wouldn’t work as well.

I think this piece of music from Rey’s TLJ force meditation would work really well.

Part of this does fit the action, buuuuut it’s too short to cover the end of the fight.

I agree that the music could be better, but I just haven’t been able to find an ideal replacement.

How long would it (some musical composition) need to be?

Thanks for the credit, man! (Even though it feels very imposter-y since I haven’t really done or helped out in any way too much with this project. lmao.)

IMO, anyone who has shown interest in the project has helped to keep me on track so your contribution has definitely been appreciated 😃

Well, the usable section from the TLJ cue is less than 30 seconds, but the duration of the fight from the Sith eyes attack to the crack in the ground is almost exactly 60 seconds.

I suppose a possible solution would be to tighten up some of that post Sith eyes duel. You could cut straight to Rey kicking Kylo to the ground right after the sith eyes moment, heck it might even flow better that way.

Maybe, but I don’t want to cut out any more of the fight, really. I guess I’m pretty picky about changing this scene further.

Anyway, the Leia reaction to Han shot is done, leaving just the shot of Finn and Rey seeing the Starkiller beam to be done on this edit. All this is so close to being complete 😃

Awesome news Nev, really excited for this😁.

So the last couple days i tried to extend the music idr_hh suggested from TLJ, but i failed to do so in a non-repetitive way. So i tried just to copy/double some passages from the track but it never sounded great. Looking for an alternative track wasn’t fruitful either, at least for me.

Well, thank you for trying. I’m fine with leaving the music the same at the end of the fight, the Sith Eyes alone are enough for me 😃

I’ve uploaded workprint 107 with the latest changes, as well as conforming it to Starlight Standard per the first post. This means the journey to Luke is reinstated with Restructured changes, as well as the first R2 scene to match. The workprint uses the same link as before. Here are most of the differences from the previous version:

-Fix BB-8’s transition to the first Starkiller shot to be smoother.
-Smooth visuals of Snoke’s line ‘Then it is time…prepare the weapon’.
-Improve audio of transition from Han and Leia’s conversation to Hux’s speech.
-Fix duplication of sound effects as Rey struggles in her restraints, lower sound of whispers slightly.
-Make music louder during Starkiller Destruction.
-Lighten second shot of Finn’s crash landing.
-Add Sith Eyes to further three shots of Rey’s fight.

After more consideration, the Starkiller beam shot will probably remain as-is unless anyone feels strongly enough to change it, in which case I can provide the source clips. The only other change to make is the acknowledgements in the end credits.

One volunteer has offered to do a final quality control review and noting timecodes for color and audio issues. If anyone else notices issues, please do leave a comment so I can fix it. 😃

Did the latest update add in the Palpatine hints from Ha’s Restructured edit?

I feel very honored to be listed in the credits! I haven’t been very active on the forums- mainly because I don’t like taking the time to type. But I have followed a lot of this edit because DAMN, the work you’ve done here is amazing! I’m in awe of the creative ideas you’ve been able to implement! You’ve been able to achieve huge and also subtle changes that, if someone had only seen the film once or twice, might not be able to figure out what you’ve done. I certainly look forward to your version of TLJ!

P.S. I would also like a link to the latest version 😉
