Hi guys! I really loved Ascendant V1; now I can’t wait to see the V2! You are making a great job, guys. when is the release expected? or when do you plan to release it? I know that is a danger question…😁

I would certainly hope to release it by TROS’ 2 year anniversary but it just depends. I will release it as soon as I get what’s needed and can compile it.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Awesome! I hope you will be able to respect what was planned. Alternatively I will wait until it is ready. 😄 I worked on V1 making the Italian Audio Track, for personal use, and I can’t wait to work on V2.

That’s December 20, right? 🤔

It will probably come down to how close the crackling saber gets. I think that’s the biggest remaining thing in both importance and effort. If whatever set date rolls around and someone is still actively working on it, might as well wait a bit longer.

I’d be glad to see some of jonh’s polishing up come through as well, though I appreciate what’s been completed so far.

If I were to be treated to a day-early viewing on December 19, which will mark two years since I sat through the movie in 4DX, that would really be something. Poetic, even. 😌

Boy does time sure fly by! I still remember where I was and how I reacted when the news broke that George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney and announced the Sequel Trilogy back on Halloween 2012.

I might end up just putting out a nice-enough workprint if it looks like it’ll be a while to actually have all the finished pieces.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Hi Hal,
Could I get a link to all your edits please?

Jiminy Cricket, what was the alternate language track that was made for V1? I can’t remember who did it or what language it was. Sounds awful, but I wanted to make sure to have a note for myself to reach out once things are ‘sync locked’ to maybe have that ready to just include in the final V2.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

In other news, I’ve been playing with a new reading of the word “end” for the Leia training. I’m at the point now where I need a clean set of ears to listen to it. Let me know how it sounds, and if you think this version works any better than the other!

Old version (Version A): https://streamable.com/y02l42
New Version (Version B): https://streamable.com/6dn00m

I still think this is the best version.

Great work either way.

I was rewatching some clips from V1, and something stood out to me right at the end - when it goes from Rey’s Theme to the End Credit fanfare, it’s like there’s an extra note in there or something? So rather than hitting the end credits immediately, it’s almost like it hiccups a wee bit? Am I imagining it?

I’m afraid I’ll need a clip of you humming it for us to know what you mean. 😉

Nope, I had mentioned before that I feel it needs to be smoothed together a little more if possible. One trick I have learned is overlapping the audio and using volume levels and fades to crossfade more and that usually works well.

Also agreed. The word “end” just sounds so funky in the other versions since it is being cut together. This one sounds the most natural.

Where did this one come from?! I can’t believe I skipped over it?

The way it’s been edited together, it sounds like he’s got a lisp or something between the cuts… but that is surely better and more natural sounding? Compared to the other ones that sound a little bit more jarring.

I still think “New Version (Version B): https://streamable.com/6dn00mcould be the best one if it can be smoothed out a bit more. The inflection in that sounds a bit better for the sentence imo.

I agree it sounds less jarring but that it also doesn’t have the right inflection. Honestly not sure if I prefer that or not.

I’m certain that’s why we passed over it. It sounded more natural, but I think it was decided that the sentence needed more emphasis on “end.” The moment is supposed to be a reveal, but that old version sounds too casual.

Yeah, I always thought the original version sounded fine, but I can also understand the argument about changing the inflection of the sentence.

With that said, what do we think of this? https://streamable.com/omqjmh

The inflection feels right now, there’s just a slight ‘garbled’ quality at the beginning of the word if that makes sense.

You probably don’t recognize me because of the red arm.

Honestly, if I have my wife watch this, she wouldn’t notice anything. I agree as me being so picky I can “hear” it needs a little work at the beginning, but if it was at the theatre … probably wouldn’t notice it.

(Though with editing, I’m totally anal about it. Lol)

I feel like it sounds weird because there really isn’t a hard ‘d’ sound at the end of the word, but maybe that is just a symptom of the actual delivery.
