it is possible to change your philosophy after some time.

If Zack really did change his philosophy, he did it after he filmed 90+% of the Justice League, because the majority of his footage was clearly shot with the intent to letterbox it, probably to a theatrical 2.39 (same as BvS). The brand new VFX shots were, however, made with the intent for open matte. So his change in philosophy probably had more to do with getting this release out the door quickly than suddenly deciding that 4:3 open matte is the wave of the future. The fact that they put Batman’s voice SFX onto Aquaman by accident shows this was kind of a rush job.

If anyone is still interested in my attempt, I’m not the best editor in terms of manipulation to audio, but I took Luke’s line, “I’m going to burn it all down,” took “burn” and cut off the last part to mix it in with the “th” part in “death of her son.”

I just updated my editing software, and it will take some getting used to. Sorry about that late reply.

This is ingenious. Please share.

On an unrelated note, I was wondering how other people felt about the film’s dedication “For Autumn” with regard to fan edits. On one hand, it might be disrespectful to remove it. But on the other hand, it’s meant to be a message directly from Zack Snyder, so once we as fan editors have altered the movie from what he wanted, one could argue that it would be unethical to leave it in. What are your thoughts?

I kept it in my edit and used an instrumental version of Hallelujah for the end credits. Keep it classy San Diego.

I found a pretty straightforward new program for this here:

Spleeter gives you two files, the music track free from vocals and vocals free from music. It’s not seamless, but it might make the difference.

Thank you for sharing this. Will give it a look.

Just a suggestion for AI lines in a fanedit, considering the current AI limitations:

Find a useable clip first from SW or another movie with the same actor. One that comes CLOSE to a line you could use with the right emotion and delivery. Then alter a word or two by using the exact same full sentence made with AI (except with a few words changed). Splice the new words into the original line, adjusting pitch slightly by syllable as needed. I’d personally avoid full sentence AI for now. While it does sound like the actor, it sounds like them out of character reading an audiobook out loud. Even if you could load a new sample set of Kylo instead of Adam Driver it would still sound like Kylo casually reading a story. What sounds amazing outside of an edit will sound out of place (or even ridiculous) in an edit.

I’m going to try and deepfake BvS buff Bruce’s face onto chunky Bruce’s face.

EDIT: @CamSMurph I have successfully figured out the basics of deepfacelab. I find that in order to get anything worthwhile I would have to do a full head swap. And that is far beyond the amount time I will spend on this part of the project. So I’ve removed the most unflattering shots of Affleck and slimmed down other’s slightly using another technique, but not deepfakes.

intent
ZSJL was a major improvement to the travesty which occurred in 2017; however, Snyder’s 4 hour release was rushed in production and stuffed with significant filler. This cut aims to rescore, reduce, and rearrange this film to give a more epic feel, with greater emotional impact in a much shorter runtime. With no preconceived idea of how long the edit should be, the end result is 2 hours 27 minutes, about the same length Snyder had initially envisioned.

Coming soon…

Palpatine is not necessarily shitty at making clones. The power of the dark side has a shitty effect on Sith. So if the clones are made through technology, then they wouldn’t have already deteriorated. The clone vat shot is a 3 second shot and it looks fine the way it is. In fact if poppasketti made the tank glass even more opaque and dirty that would be fine.

Speaking of Palpatine clones, I suggest changing them so they all look different from each other but in their own unique, mutilated ways, although one closely resembles Snoke but with some of Palpatine’s facial features — adds to the inference that Palpatine is horrible at manufacturing lifeforms, hence why his body is decaying and deteriorating, and why he can’t just make an entire army of Snokes.

EDIT: Also, make the clones in question dead, implying that Palps’ clone vessel and Snoke himself were barely successes.

TestingOutTheTest, I can’t wait to see what you come up with in After Effects to make the clones look so mutilated and perfect.

sherlockpotter, beautiful concept. The scene works much better now. The “for skywalker” lines might work here with a bit of finessing. Maybe more distant, high pass EQ, underneath the blaster fire. Alternately you could add SFX of the first order retreating so as not to keep using the for skywalker lines. They have quite an impact at the end.
