Replacing Anakin Kung Pow style - Still not possible?
Time

DigMod said:

This assumes that Anakin is the only bad part of the prequels. I don’t think any amount of green screen masking can fix the prequels.

The dream scenario would be to replace Anakin with an actor who can deliver better dialogue and use the title crawls and alien subtitles to tell a better story. In my head, Anakin should be a young adult played by the same actor throughout the trilogy.

I believe some have said they tried shooting against a green screen and inserting it into a prequel scene but it looked awful. Just confirming that technology hasn’t improved since then to the point that this would be viable.

Sounds like you want to do some VFX. I suggest After Effects for this though I haven’t done people replacement etc. It can apparently rotoscope.

Subs: dn0

Yes/prolly

I’d suggest Adobe Premiere.

Thanks - appreciate the advice!

Prequel edit - Advice for newbie
Time

Hi all. I’ve perused this site for some time now but recently officially joined as a member after being inspired by many of the amazing edits and ideas for edits that I’ve come across here. The inspiration: I have a fairly radical Prequel Fan Edit idea for which I have developed the stories. The rub is that I have no experience with film editing or editing software. I’m looking for some advice as a complete newbie to this world and any insight would be most appreciated. These are the high-level questions I have:

If it’s possible, the project would ideally involve removing characters and/or objects from some existing scenes in several instances and inserting characters/objects from scenes into others. In most instances, the re-insertion of characters into scenes would be as holograms. If possible, what tools/software/techniques are best to use?
To help frame the stories differently than the originals, I will need to rely on the use of subtitles and changing existing subtitles for many of the alien characters in certain scenes. Again, what tools/software/techniques are best?
Is it even possible to self-teach these techniques (if they exist) via the web?
Which editing software would be best to incorporate these type of changes?
I have work-arounds already figured out if some or all of these type of edits are not possible but I feel strongly that it will make for a better trilogy if they can be used.

Again, all comments, insight, and advice are welcome and appreciated. Cheers.
