I agree with you, which is why I tried it. It didn’t work very well and it would require me to do a lot of work to rebuild TFA’s video stream because doing it at all requires adjusting sync. Even so, the moment felt very underwhelming.

I agree, but there hasn’t been anything else to fit in adequately in practice.

I could give it a try, what you said about re-adjusting the video sync. Even though it would be better for me to put that in your TFA thread.

What I mean is that the audio needed for that moment will not conform to the existing video track, requiring me to essentially manually replace each clip in the TFA timeline and do more than it’s worth. And it would all be to do something to actively detract from that moment.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Okay. I’ll still give it a shot.

Here’s an example of re-scoring the scene. It can be done. What I did here was trim off the beginning of the wide shot and trimmed the beginning and end of the next shot of Rey holding the saber.

I don’t think Hal is going to be making any more changes to TFA. And this isn’t the TFA thread, anyway.

Great work on this, Hal.

Watched workprint 6.1. It looks really good, and my feedback is minimal.

  • For the edit in the desert scene, the cut at 23:40 is pretty obvious. I suggest using the clip at 24:02 and placing it at 23:40 as a break, THEN cut to them running.

  • Would you consider putting in a couple establishing shots of Ahch-To at 1:26:28? It’s such a hard cut here and it’s our first time seeing the island in this movie, and doesn’t give much context. Is there a shot or two from TFA or TLJ that could flesh out this sequence a little more? In my dreams, I’d love to see a wipe to seeing Ren’s TIE fighter fly toward the planet, and THEN establishing shot of the island, and THEN Rey burning the TIE.

  • In Kylo Ren’s mask montage, Rey says, “You’re a creature in a mask” at 18:08. But it’s hard to hear over the music. It’s an important line. Could it be moved just a second or two later so it is more audible?

  • I’m a big fan of the Knights of Ren dialogue. I do think you should consider adding one of the lines in the helmet rebuilding scene, but that’s just my opinion.

Agree on this, watching it back.

For clarification HAL, I did watch it in browser so that could contribute to the volume issue.

This is the way.

I can try that.

In my dreams, I’d love to see a wipe to seeing Ren’s TIE fighter fly toward the planet, and THEN establishing shot of the island, and THEN Rey burning the TIE.

As it is I stuck with the original music and used the corresponding (but different) moment in the OST for the original establishing shot used later. I like that the new shot isn’t a repeat of a shot from before, but I do agree it’s one of many abrupt cuts in the movie as it was.

If DominicCobb could make that change I’ll use it. I have the entire scene as a single clip so I couldn’t modify it. I could probably find which channels the line is in, and raise the volume slightly for that line.

  • I’m a big fan of the Knights of Ren dialogue. I do think you should consider adding one of the lines in the helmet rebuilding scene, but that’s just my opinion.

I really think a subtle approach to their added voices works better in the final film, but I also like all their added lines in the demo reel.

If you’re reading, Burbin, the first chance idea would only affect sync for two or three subtitled lines. So if you sync them to the current workprint, I can easily just readjust those couple lines once you get me the subtitle files.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Okay, that’s good to hear. I used Audacity to encode the aC3 track rather than Compressor to bypass a strange issue.

I agree with an comment a couple up about the KoR dialogue. I like the dialogue but the sound doesn’t really blend, did not watch through browser if that helps. I thought it sounded too loud.

While I like the new Stormtrooper “kill me now” line in theory the audio just doesn’t work. It sounds too clean for the sound we are used to hearing coming from a stormtrooper helmet. Maybe just running it through a subtle filter to make it sound like it’s coming through a radio will help?

Also reguarding sound volume I play the downloaded edit through my 5.1 surround system via kodi with no audio balancing issues, the Dolby AC3 track sounds fine on my end.

I’m done with the sync to the latest workprint for the Spanish subtitles. I’ll begin working on English/French as soon as I can.

I don’t mind tweaking things further if any worthwhile changes come about.

Well, I don’t think moving that shot to buffer the transition before the heroes run toward the trooper and meet Lando works due to the music playing. It’d be hairy, and so I think what’s there at present is our best bet here. No sync adjustment needed.

I tweaked some other audio stuff: made Rey’s line about the mask slightly louder, the KoR lines in the desert a little quieter, and added more of a ‘telephone’ filter to RogueLeader’s trooper lines.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Re: Audio transitions and overall leveling, I watched in browser on a Lenovo through Chrome w/ Sony Studio monitors and had no issues.

Also popped print v. 6.1 into my home theater with 5.1 and although a couple transitions are maybe… ever so vaguely muddled, I still think everything is super ready to final. (What you are fiddling with now Hal, the additional trooper voice processing, Rey’s volume, are valid nitpicks though thanks for all the attention to detail!).

Thank you; always good to hear that a real 5.1 setup sounds good, since I don’t have one in which to test things.

I just had an idea. To truly make this the definitive edit, one thing is still missing: we need to edit the book.

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”

Feel free if you’d like, I guess. I’d never done that sort of thing; a lot of the changes to my SW edits involve subtraction, and one can still consider the full novelizations to be ‘expanded.’

Books can be different from film counterparts. But, hey, you can do that if you’d like to.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Slightly Extended, 7 minutes of Darth Maul Duel Of The Fates track from Solo is releasing soon, sometime early November, Whether we use slightly more or just get better quality music will be interesting to see whats on it.

Just recorded the first half of my commentary track. I’ll record the rest another night.

It’s not going to be the best of the bunch, but it’ll exist!

And when the civilian fleet arrives I’m going to be quiet and edit in the audio with original audio tracks brought way down and added voices balanced out so that everyone can have a fair chance to hear as much of the contributed voices as possible. Anyone who contributed is technically in the movie, even if inaudible.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
