How are we on the Mustafar intro? Last I recall Neverar was addressing the potential suitability of the Biomes short, though there was some question about the speed of the pan and whether it would work in practice as well as we would hope.

Barring future input, here’s where it remains at present, which I’ve never been anything other than happy with: https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/529875645

Huh, I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen this version of the opening! It looks pretty good (although I do think having a version with the Biomes shot for editors would be good since it would be such a waste to not use that gorgeous footage).

Also, I also want to state that I hope MR isn’t permanently avoiding this thread and that I hope he comes back soon. Glimmer of hope but I know he had computer problems around the time of his exodus and that he couldn’t even really work on his own edit let alone the stuff for this one. Maybe when it’s fixed, bad feelings will have cooled down and he could come back to this thread.

The Star Wars Fan Edits Request Thread: Request the links to Star Wars fan edits here
Time

Hi, does anyone still have a copy of Spence’s ROTJ edit? Preferably one that’s one video file rather than a whole slew of VOB files?

I’ve downloaded the link to this edit from fanedit.info but I’ve been having one heck of a time trying to take all of the separate files and converting it into one playable movie file. I’m at wit’s end in regards to this and I feel like I’m about to start pulling out my hair.

The dialogue in my clip has been altered from the version Sherlock posted; I mixed together the phrase “am a Jedi” from a few different sources, but in blending the phonemes to get the word “am”, there’s a slight hum from the crossfade which is unavoidable (it’s simply a side-effect of how blending separate pieces of audio works). I hoped the lightsaber hum would be enough to render it unnoticeable.

Here it is without the lightsaber.

This is perfect to my ears.

Finally. I’m as happy with this as I’m ever going to be with the current audio sources, frankly, so now it’s up to group consensus to decide what they think of it.

We’re THIS close to the final product for this scene. I can feel it.

I agree though that the sound still doesn’t sound all that diegetic.

1. Walker sounds on Crait

This edit both masks out the First Order shuttle approaching the blast doors and adds the sounds of slowly approaching walkers and TIEs to the establishing shots with Leia. This better stitches up the disconnect between the approaching ships in the theatrical (Finn is already with the Resistance) and provides some quite evocative juxtaposition, Leia staring out into a tundra, the sounds of fascist machinery closing in:

Chills.

I really want to end my TLJ edit by irising out on the group shot of the Resistance inside the Falcon, but the shot isn’t long enough to fit the music. It’s only a few seconds too short - I’ve seen people here extend shots using interpolation software, but I don’t have the technical know-how to do it myself; is there anyone who could give it a crack?

If you have Adobe Premiere, you can use the the Rate Stretch Tool (and it wouldn’t be too noticeable if it’s only a few seconds you need to extend it out.)

Hey, so I know there’s been a couple of ideas about using Voice AI replication software to get new lines out of people such as Kylo Ren or Luke.

Anyways, I just finished watching the new episode of Disney Gallery about the Season 2 finale of The Mandalorian and they talked about how they used this software called ReSpeecher to replicate Mark Hamill’s voice from back in the day for his new lines. Granted, they had raw audio files from the films to use. But, I think with stuff like the Lego Force Awakens game, we could get some good stuff for Kylo Ren at least.

Has anyone looked into possibly using this? I know on the website (here: https://www.respeecher.com/?hsLang=en) it says something about scheduling a demo or whatever. I’m not sure what kind of price it has but has anyone thought about maybe biting the bullet and looking into it?

And it’ll look even more out-of-place and terrible within the context of the movie.

No offense to the guys who worked on the video, but it completely clashes with the movie (even more than the work done in ‘97).

Exactly. That’s honestly my biggest problem with “Sc. 38”. It was an interesting experiment but I think it looks dookie and it’s almost always out of place in fan edits IMHO.

What does anyone here think of the second attempt at Luke’s line, “the birth of her son?”

Not gonna lie, man… The last couple of times I’ve listened to it, it just sounds like he’s giving a big Rick Sanchez-esque burp in the middle of the sentence.

I obviously want something like to this to work out but I’m not sure if it’s feasible at all now. I think our best bet is to just stick with “Leia sensed her son” or something like that. Getting rid of words rather than trying to add them.
