Star Wars - The Lost Cut is not exactly what you think it is....
Time

Ronster said:

I have tried to consider the sound vs the video and consolidate basically and also put it in the correct order.

There are 2 points at which there are discrepencies.

In the first cortidor battle there is a whizz sound that does not exactly time with a person being shot. It may mean 2 shots are in the wrong order but it is not massively noticeable. Or potentially a splice is missing.

The second is R2-D2 jump cut in the corridor as he moves off those missing frames would realign the video and audio so although I am in synch up to that moment I am not after the jump cut. The original is out of synch when R2 wheels hit the floor.

Best thing to do is download and watch in slow motion and see if you can see or hear a discrepency but for the most part I think i got it working pretty much as choreographed adhearing to the Sound as best I could.

Interesting. You don’t think that these are simply errors when sound mixing?

This reminds me of something that has bugged me for years (which Adywan fixed): The tusken music that gets chopped up as they run and hop onto the banthas. What do you suppose happened here?

I have a possible suggestion to make in terms of line re-dubbing. There are voice cloning programs out there (that I’ve been very unsuccessful and downloading due to software requirements) that might do the trick, despite the voice cloning results may sound more robotic and not as natural in the tone of voice.

OK wow I feel stupid. I’ve been waiting for Adobe to release their version of this type of software and didn’t think there are other possibilities out there.

I just came across lyrebird.ai. I don’t think it’ll work for fan editing purposes seeing as how it requires you to record your own voice saying specific phrases they’ve constructed.

There’s Real-Time-Voice-Cloning that apparently one could download from github.com. Seems a bit complicated…buuut potentially it could work at least for certain scenes?

It’s good, but the shots feel framed really funny with all that static space.

I did notice that at first, but then, almost instantly, I got use to it. I like the wider shot. This looks great snooker! Can’t wait to see how Jar Jar is completely removed from TPM!

Smithers said:

yes this is what im using, in many cases i have to use photoshop to create custom mattes such as this though, still it works for wider shots

Yeah, the Content-aware fill thingy is by no means magic on it’s own. I’ve tried it on a handful of shots…some work pretty well, while others don’t at all. Definitely need to make custom mattes.

Why don't people hate the Palpatine re-casting in ESB yet despise Force ghost Anakin's re-casting in RotJ?

I personally find the hate on Hayden’s Ghost Anakin vs. the Palpatine recast extremely hypocritical and screams of anger filled double standards; trying to rationalize the double standard just digs the hole deeper.

I’m not sure if you’re lumping me in that category. If you are, I don’t think that’s fair.

Here’s the deal: I can get a bit hyperbolic from time to time on these boards.
Ultimately, my opinion is indeed just an opinion. It’s all subjective. It may not make sense why someone hates one change while loving another. It’s just the way it is.
I don’t understand why George Lucas made certain changes to his Star Wars Trilogy, but I don’t actually hate him for it. I poke fun at certain things about his films…but it’s all in good fun.

Good question. I don’t know why I’m tackling this question because I know someone will come along and express it a lot better than me…but here I go:

I don’t necessarily think everyone feels the same way. I also don’t think it’s cut and dry either.

I like the original performance in ESB.
I also appreciate why it was changed - now we have consistency with the same actor portraying the same character in the saga. With that said, I don’t like the altered dialogue nor do I particularly like Ian’s performance.

Now Anakin is a different story. It’s not just disrespectful to Mr. Shaw. It alters Anakins redemption.
Prior to this change, Old Anakin simply transformed into force ghost Anakin…with only battle damaged removed.

Now, going by visuals alone (this is a movie, after all) Lucas is essentially telling us that Anakin was redeemed and transformed to his pre-Sith days. That was when he was last ‘good’ and not evil.
I think the logic behind the change is probably that Anakin hasn’t done anything good in his life since his Jedi days and therefore the force is sort of “erasing” the Sith days from his life. Hence, he looks young while Obi-Wan and Yoda look old.
Since this change, my thoughts have been: Anakin WAS redeemed as an old man, therefore, he should be an old looking force ghost…for lack of a better way of putting it.

Would you like the dialogue if it wasn’t changed yet still performed by Ian, similar to in Adywan’s ESB:R?

Adywan’s is the closest, yes.
