The AI Voicegen stuff works very well with voices that already have effects on them, like this:

It’d be good for a Kylo modification, but not a Palpatine one.

Not to go off topic, but could someone tell me someplace else how to acquire Speech Synthesis/Voice-Cloning software and Deepfakes?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Is this not late 2020? We only have a month and a half to go! Let’s not push January 20, 2021 any further away than we have to…

Yeah, I was gonna say - what is mid-November 2020 if not late 2020?

^ Here’s their last message back in August:

Hey all, I know I’ve been inactive e for a good minute but I wanted to provide an update. I am still working on the crackling saber, progress has been slowed a little, I’ve recently had a cancer diagnosis in someone very close to me, so I’ve been doing some casework. Things have taken a turn for the better recently. I’ve still been chugging along when I can with work in after effects and will post content when it looks good lol
But I am alive and still very much working om this project!

That’s a nice piece. I still think that what’s there already works equally well as it would have been if sourced from that clean take. It’s subtle. Thanks for pointing that out, though.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

You know what the KoR dialog feels like? A pointless SE change. You know, like Vader’s or Luke’s lines being changed in ESB.

I’ve only heard four acceptable impersonators. One, Ian Abercrombie, has sadly since passed away. The others, Sam Witwer, Tim Curry, and Nick Jameson, are all out of the budget I imagine 😅

Personally Witwer’s Palpatine never sounded quite right to me.

Well, that seems a bit harsh. Well, there’ll be an alternate audio track to pick from so everyone’s happy.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I hope what’s happening in The Mandalorian show so far doesn’t throw a monkey wrench into what this edit has changed about TROS.

Lol, not sure how much can change unless they decolonize the sequels and do something crazy like Kanan and World between worlds crap. Lol. (Hope not but kinda do at the same time for these sequels.)

As for Hal having alternate track with the KOR, I’d like to listen to both with and without … I’m guessing by personal bias I’d prefer them staying quiet, but won’t judge till I listen!

Do NOT self-destruct!

Spoilers for The Mandalorian:

I’m pretty sure those guys aren’t actually Snoke, their scars are completely wrong. They’re certainly meant to be evocative of the Snoke clones, but probably just to clue in the audience “Oh yeah, dark science and cloning is going on here.” My guess is that Gideon is trying to build an unstoppable army of Force-sensitive clones, as hinted by the rows of immobile troopers in the final scene of the episode.

Okay guys, enough with the spoilers.

My god, you are just incapable of being constructive or tactful with your criticisms, aren’t you?

Hello everyone,
Just jumping in to praise your hard work on this one: I won’t say that I now like TROS, but it’s a step over the theatrical cut quality wise thanks to all the little changes. More importantly, they mostly blend so well that I never thought I was watching a fanedit. Great work and thanks to everyone one involved, really.

On the small cons, as already stated by other members, I am not a huge fan of the audio additions:

  • KoR voices are well done but I prefer them to stay silence (I actually often prefer less dialogues in Star Wars 😃)
  • the same goes with “for Skywalker !” added bit (even if I’m more ok with this one)
  • Palpatine clones: I think I prefer Snoke to be a clone than confirming that Palpy is one (which wouldn’t explain why he is in such a bad shape: best explanation is that he is the same guy who got blown up with DS2)
  • Duel of the Fates cue is very hard to notice: I wouldn’t mind it being slightly louder if there was a V2 of the edit one day

I would then welcome an alternate audio track so I could chose if I want talkative or silent KoR. It’s nice to provide both tracks Hal 😉

The Jedi Force Ghost is the climax of this edit alterations: so epic 😄 Even if I understand the reasons not to include him, I wouldn’t have minded Anakin to be along Leia, Luke and Ben during the last shots.

I believe for a conservative edit (meaning not a "Rey nobody "edit) I don’t see room for much more to trim. Maybe, if a v2 was one day discussed:

  • I think that removing Hux’s “I’m the spy” would be a wise idea for example;
  • also, removing the subplot with the Force calling the troopers to defect from the FO (I think it’s kinda weird that the Force “takes side” in a way);
  • the Lando dialogue with his grand daughter (something never clarified in the actual movie), but I guess removing it would create a jarring audio cut in the music, so better leave it.
  • I like the idea about trimming Rey exchange described here: https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/the-rise-of-skywalker-ascendant-released/id/71835/page/291#1386399

I am thinking about creating an alternate track to add the complete Palpatine message. Don’t know yet if I will follow through the idea but here is a first mock up using the front channels (levels are not much corrected, it’s only a POC):

https://vimeo.com/479965791 (go after 1min20s)

I don’t have any other audio edits ideas though.

(and here are the french subs with 3 lines corrected that I found after watching the edit:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/h6puy5rtakqk58i/TROS_Ascendant_french_final.srt/file)

Again guys, very good work. The ST is overall quite improved by these edits. Whether we like PT or ST it doesn’t matter: we care about SW and we all always wish the movies to be as good as they could. Something these edits achieve to do.

With all of the comments about the KoR voices, I’ll chime in to say that I like them

The Jedi Force Ghost is the climax of this edit alterations: so epic 😄 Even if I understand the reasons not to include him, I wouldn’t have minded Anakin to be along Leia, Luke and Ben during the last shots.

You’ll be glad to hear that jonh said he’ll do one with Anakin eventually 😄
