Custom Crawl Creator: Revisited (A Free Blender Project for Fan Editors)
Time

MisterBenja1977 said:

Has anyone notice that the episode number is poking out ever so slightly the whole time before its supposed to be revealed? I’m not a Blender guru so I have no idea how to correct this. I could mask it later AE.

It could be that the beginning frame is set too early in he animation. Mine animates the camera rather than the text, I believe Jack’s does too. You can most likely solve it by changing the animation frame range. I believe this is located on the right menu or on the bottom wimdow. This may require you to also adjust the original of the camera to not show the text.

Post a screen shot and we can help more.

Shouldn’t matter once it’s properly cropped, right?

That depends on the output size. I have mine set to always output the viewable area only (no black border area) so it doesnt have to be cropped.
If that is the case with Jack’s, cropping could cause minute issues with crawl placement.

Unofficially it’s finished. I’m just trying to actually get a Blu Ray done this time as it has been requested by a few. Making the menus and everything takes quite a bit of time.

I planned to release a 15gb MP4 and a 25gb Blu Ray. I’ve tried to render a 720p 4gb file, but honestly it looked like trash. I do have a streaming option available for the MP4.

Thanks for sharing the idea marduk. I had tried that it actually near the beginning of creating the crawl. It didn’t work from me personally though. I may have another stab at it though 😃

Mardukk666,
Jyn still saves the girl. Chirrut’s trooper smack down is greatly abbreviated to remove the Kung Fu-ish antics/cheese. He’s more of a character rather than a cultural figure in this edit.

darth_ender,
I may attempt something later on, but honestly I just can’t bring myself to watch episodes II & III. I’ll most likely leave any prequel stuff for my TV edit ideas. That way I can chop them up to 30-45 min episodes. I’d want to remove as much of Anakin as possible. The Anakin we got just diminishes Darth Vader. I’d rather keep the mystery of Darth Vader than show the disaster that was Anakin. I could even show Obi-Wan fighting Darth Vader with a red rotoscoped blade on Mustafar. He’d never call him Anakin, just refer to him as the Sith. We’d not see Padme in the edits in her wife/mother capacity either, just as a queen and senator.

I’m assuming the trooper doesn’t know he’s an informant. All the troopers know is that there were two suspicious characters that opened fire on other troopers. Seems like an Empire’s definition of shoot on sight. Cassian was out of sight so he wasn’t shot and he then escaped. I thought about adding blaster flares as he ran away, but thought the sound implied that they were shooting at him.

Thanks for the thought Hardcore Legend. The only issue with that idea that I can think of is that she already has a dream sequence when she is traveling to Jedha. The opening events are an implied dream sequence in this edit. As the hatch opens up to where Jyn is hiding (as a child) there is a hard cut to her waking in the prison as an adult, as if from a dream. We don’t see that it was Saw until later in her Jedha arrival dream sequence.

Perhaps it’s just me, but your crawl wording is great with one exception. I would suggest “Imperial” be added before Director Krennic.

Just watched it and I have to agree with you. Thanks!

Mark’s Down On Your Syntax said:

I’m really looking forward to seeing this. It sounds great, and with a few exceptions your edits are the edits I would make to the film.

Thanks for the interest! Which edit choices would you add or remove?

Oops, sorry for the confusion. I’ve removed the episode # for the crawl in the final version. I’d debated it for a while, but some I’d the crew here gave me the final push to drop it out. These are drafts of a project so the final versions are a little different.

The pan down to the rings was originally what I wanted to do, but the scene moves laterally so it would cause an issue with the pan down movement.

The Cassian edit is more of a personal one. I agree that it is an important shot, no pun intended, but it just always left me feeling unsettled. I know it’s supposed to do that, for some of the reasons you mention.

The nice thing about this edit is that it’s much easier to make different versions when compared to my HttF edit. If one particular edit isn’t to the liking of many, I can easily produce an alternative.

Thanks for the feedback and interest 😃

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 **REVISITED** ADYWAN **720p HD version coming after ROTJ:R*
Time

“Sir, we’re detecting a massive object emerging from hyperspace.” *Death Star shown on Scarif horizon.

See 7:05
https://youtu.be/RIftKRavXCg

Yes, it has light speed. I’d think the fully operational part refers to the multi-reactor laser. They’ve only tested the single reactor.

I don’t see why the blue planet shouldn’t be or become Scarif in ANH:R. It would connect the films.

Nah, the Force theme, because that would ruin one of the greatest musical motifs.

Star wars prequel edit.

Can you give us a full proposed cut list. I can’t tell what your vision for the story is so it’s kind of hard to help out.

The task of Vader’s No scream replacement is going to be pretty difficult to do and produce anything that will be clear enough for a final mix.

Do you need this scene? There are some scenes in Field of Dreams where he is angry when Frank first knocks on his
door if you’re looking for something for him to say.

Erasing the Prequels Entirely
Time

If you duplicate the shot and stack it slightly off, you can use a cookie cutter effect (that’s what it’s called in vegas) to retain the stars the whole way up. It’s like making a moveable mask. Would save the headache of rotoscoping the stars.

I’ve actually been toying around with this idea. I’ve elected to make my Rogue One edit into episode III, but I’ve been thinking of just having Star Wars movies that remove the “episode” part. Fixes a lot of issues.
