Hey thanks so much for the info!

I had just recently seen a YouTube video with someone eliminating certain frequencies specifically for processing vocals and it hadn’t even dawned on me to try that for my purposes. I’ll definitely be testing out both methods. Thanks!

yes i totally forgot to mention actually… for scenes that have dialogue that has music behind it, u can try to use this https://vocalremover.org/

it may work well for that scenario for u, will only work with dialague and music tho, not sfx

danieldubb, could you give me some advice or pointers? In my edit I’m working on, i need to be able to remove as much original music from the film as possible in order to rescore. Especially in action scenes. I can do a certain amount of rebuiling of the sfx but i was hoping to retain as much of the original sfx as possible. I’ve played around with multiband compressers and limiters (in davinci resolve) with a bit of luck but i dont really know what I’m doing. Any advice on how to go about this? Any helpful youtube videos you may know of?

Hey man, totally so in my opinion u have two options, the first is that a lot of these original vfx sounds can be found online as individual “hits” or sounds. u could simply find the relative sfx and fit drop it in over your new score OR there is a few methods that could yield a decent result, the multiband compressor and limiters are not gonna do it, you are better off trying to either use an “EQ” and cut the sample as short and tight as possible and try to take out some frequancies around the specific sound “guns shots” sit in differenrt frequancy ranges than lets say a string or horn instrument from the score. or your other option is to use whats called a “gate” which basically grabs sounds that surpass a specific loudness and it will cut off anything below that volume level so it might work pretty well. i think ur first option will get the cleanest result tho. hope that helps!

Here’s a question for ya!

Asking this here instead of a PM because I think the answer might be broadly applicable:

I’m looking to make a Japanese language track for Adywan’s ESB:R edit. I plan on keeping everything else about the track the same. Here’s what I have to work with:

  • I’m using an Adobe Premiere/Audition workflow (tho personally I’m more comfortable with Goldwave for straight-up audio-only editing).

  • I have Adywan’s ESB:R audio and a 5.1 JPN track from the R2 2015 theatrical blu-ray. I also have the 1981 stereo dub for lines like “Bring my shuttle” that got lost along the way.

How would you go about putting this track together?

I feel the best approach would be to first match the JPN track volume to Adywan’s, then swap out the ENG spots on various channels with JPN versions of those channels and adjust from there. Would you agree?

thats def a good approach, referencing is very important and if you are able to do comparing to the swaps you want to make then it should be pretty easy to match, my only concern would be that you are using audio from different sources some being 5.1 and others being Stereo.

Hey all, Shamook here.
I was just googling myself and came across this thread. It’s really nice and refreshing to see so many people enjoying my videos. Sorry if I never responded to your emails or messages, I just don’t have the time to get back to everyone unfortunately. I think I got 300+ emails about the Mando deepfake.
Let me know if there are any specific things I might be able to provide you guys with; extra scenes, different video formats etc
Also I can verify I’m definitely Shamook if that’s necessary.
Cheers.

Welcome and thanks for reaching out. You have some fans on this site of ur work. Would be great to have u as part of the community.

I am super interested in this as well! I reached out to Shamook a while back and didn’t get a response (possibly just that they are busy or that it’s a pretty large YouTube channel now).

If someone successfully gets in touch or directs Shamook here we should maybe alert people here? I’m betting since these deepfakes started dropping on YouTube (and I agree, Shamook’s are often the highest quality) that they have gotten a deluge of emails and DMs from fan editors! Probably would be a help not to have a chunk of the forums here spamming them.

a few people have tried to reach out, he never answered anyone to my knowledge

Yesterday I finally watched this edit (thanks to Yuri_Kenobi for the subtitles, they are great) and best thing I can say of it is I couldn’t tell what was added or trimmed,except for the “Han Solo” scene, but now it works. The movie was quite enjoyable, to the point where now will be part of my Star Wars marathons, which wasn’t before. Thanks Digmod for this edit.

Do u have the DL link for this? cant seem to get a link

I’d agree that derpfakes’ Leia is the best looking. I used it here in this shot that I’ll be updating Rise of the Rebellion with. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXXnFZIJFFo&feature=youtu.be&ab_channel=DigModiFicaTionFanedits
I’ll also be using Shamook’s Tarkin.

yes @rey_afraid just pointed this out as well! i agree… with shamook leia there is a flicker in her face from the side profile before the deepfake catches… but thanks all u guys for chiming in on this!

The deepfake face looks more realistic however the animation of the original CG face is so stiff and unrealistic that the Luke scene unfortunately isn’t much of an improvement.

Shamook’s Tarkin and Leia are great though. I’m glad this thread was started, I was going to try contacting him. It’s a shame he hasn’t gotten back to anyone yet.

yes it is… i feel like shamook belongs in this community… his work is fantastic… if you want to try and reach out I say go for it… how many of us can he ignore? we must rally together lol…

I’ll try direct messaging him on YouTube.

that might work, i only tried gmail!

I wonder if he would be able to send “you/us” those video clips in the proper fps to avoid that hassle. When I watch the two in comparison, I think the deep fake is “better” … mainly the eyes stand out the most to me being more real.

I agree. And yes would be great if he did have the proper format which he could may well have. I will try and hit him up again.

Unfortunately Shamook’s videos aren’t at a perfect 23.976 fps, so they have a few duplicated/missed frames. You could fix this manually, and use EBSynth to generate the missing frames, but it’s a little bit of a pain.

so upon importing into a DVW it wouldnt line up or would look funny?.. forgive my ignorance i’m an audio guy and pretty limited with my video knowledge… I just know it looks so real compared to the original and ties into ANH so much better.

So there is a guy on youtube called “Shamook” who did an incredible job deepfake fixing Tarkin and Leia… is it just me or does anyone else want these scenes swapped in their version of Rogue One?
 

check it out here:

Does anyone know this “Shamook” person? I tried to reach out via email but didnt get a response…

he is also working on a Luke deepfake for Mando season 2 finale
