I was supposed to return to work last Saturday but 80% of my staff caught Covid from Fridays event and we had to close before I even got to run my event. I can’t do anything until I can return to work and afford a new computer unfortunately.

Yeah, we all used video co pilot plug-in. It’s awesome but a nightmare to get all the layer effects looking good as it’s a frame by frame task plus animating masks. I can’t even open after effects to give someone my settings. Sorry!

I appreciate those getting in touch and asking after me but life really sucks right now.

Wow! That’s really appreciated. Sorry I’ve not been involved in conversation. I find it tough not contributing to an edit thats so close to finish.

I’ve honestly really missed the escapism. I hope you’re all doing good though.

Thanks guys.

Ah man, that seriously sucks. I hope things turns around for you soon!

This is why everyone who can should get vaccinated ASAP.

Discussions such as this should not be started around here, IMHO. People have different opinions. I have heart problems (and considering the very high number of myocarditis related to vaccines, I should not be vaccinated), and a close (very close) relative of mine got really serious asthma problems BECAUSE of a supposedly safe vaccine years ago.
And I’ll stop here. No intention to start conversation or discussion intended.

I amended my comment to specify anyone who is able to should get the vaccine - yours sounds like a legitimate health concern, and I respect that - but for the most part this is science, not “different opinions.” It shouldn’t be controversial to say that vaccines are important.

Not that I want to turn this into a Covid thread; just me offering moral support to a friend.

True. The science suggests that for greater than 99% of the population, the risks of the vaccine are far lower than the risk of getting Covid.

More true. Let’s keep this on topic.

Going back to that ReSpeech software, if you can clone a voice and have it speak based on a recording of someone else’s voice, would it be possible to replace Ewan McGregor’s voice with Alec Guinness’, Hayden Christensen’s with Sebastian Shaw’s and Ashley Eckstein’s with Rosario Dawson’s?

I know that this idea sounds very unlikely, but it would be neat to try out. Along with doing this with Obi-Wan’s “These are your first steps” from The Force Awakens.

Do you think it might be good to look for footage of Sebastian Shaw from other material so Jon H. can use it as a resource if he does a version of Anakin’s ghost portrayed by Shaw?

That sounds like…a lot lol. Considering that it’s a paid service (and it sounds like it’s paid per-line, from what I can tell from the website), and the amount of data that would have to be provided to train the AI, this sounds like it’s probably outside the realm of possibility. But hey, this fan edit in particular has pushed the boundaries considerably already.

I wonder, has there been any word from that YouTuber who had trained his own Adam Driver AI? I think you said he was revising his algorithm or something when we requested a few different lines a while back?

Particularly with older actors it would likely be impossible to get a sufficient sample size for an AI to replicate. Even with modern day actors, you need a sizable pool of speech audio. Clearly Adam Driver had enough for his own library, but that’s not going to be the case with everyone.

I haven’t heard back from him yet. I could try contacting him again, if you’d all like. I’m just afraid of possibly pissing him off for asking about doing the “You’re just a clone” line and others.

I wonder, has Hal listed off all the things he would like to do with TRoS, but can’t due to the limited resources he has at his disposal? That would certainly be an engaging read! 😄

Sorry if this is not all that valuable to the discussion but I just have to say, Ascendant is just one of the most impressive projects I’ve ever seen. As someone who enjoys the Sequel Trilogy, you’ve managed to take what was one of the most messy Star Wars films released and turned it into something that, while not perfect, manages to feel like a proper conclusion far more than the original ever did and that deserves to be commended.

Has HAL considered taking notes from Dominic and manipulating the source material so that Rey is “Just Rey” at the end, presumably in an alternate cut of this admittedly fantastic project? From what I’ve seen on his own thread, the test clips he’s provided work spectacularly in their own right, and I think it could work remarkably well in the new context of the narrative. 😃

I don’t know if there’s a spot (or dialogue) for this, but what if Kylo says “Chewie…” softly to himself after everyone thinks the transport ship blows up? Considering that he must’ve known Chewie for his entire childhood, surely he would be upset by his apparent death? It might be a way to paint Kylo in more shades of grey, rather than “Grrr…I’m gonna kill people on my quest for power. Oh wait, I’m good now.”
