TFA: A Gentle Restructure

The shot of Rey standing over Kylo when she beats him. Look at the falling snow and it’s clearly in slow mo. There isn’t a way to retime that, is there? It stands out to me every time and bugs the crap out of me.

Well, I know lots of people have a problem with the fact that Rey bests Kylo Ren. Perhaps she really didn’t and that was all a force vision/dream ala Luke’s slowed down scene in Empire. Of course, that isn’t the case here. Have YOU tried to fix the timing?

Fair enough 😃

It is quite theatrical, I’d argue not any more than this paragraph though:

Pursued by the Empire’s
sinister agents, Princess
Leia races home aboard her
starship, custodian of the
stolen plans that can save
her people and restore
freedom to the galaxy…

You’re totally right about that 😃

The galaxy is in peril.
Far from the worlds
of the New Republic,
a sinister FIRST ORDER
is building a weapon that
can devour an entire star.

Haunted by visions of
this devastating weapon,
the disgraced General
Leia Organa mobilizes
a covert Resistance in
an attempt to stave off
this impending disaster.

While on a daring mission,
her most trusted pilot has
found a clue to the location
of Leia’s long-lost brother,
the last of the Jedi Knights
and their only hope against
the evil First Order…

Nice! Now that is Star Wars 😃
Stave off might be difficult for some to understand, but I think comprehension would come without frustration. Excellent mix of simplistic and poetic language!

I can be the yin to your yang 😃

I think that crawl is a bit too theatrical in it’s word choice. Far from the complacent; devour the very stars; this impossible weapon; forestall this impending doom; ancient fear ( the way this reads is confusing as if Luke is their ancient fear). It just feels like it’s trying to be academic. Star Wars flirts with dramatic but never becomes polarizing to those who struggle with reading. The lexile score of this crawl is a bit steep for the general population. Remember, the crawls should be able to be read and understood by children. I’m a bit exhausted after reading this and perhaps frustrated because it is flying by and I’m wanting to rewind in order to understand.

How’d I do for disagreeing in a productive manner?

The Saturday Morning Prequel Trilogy

Glad to see some traction on these ideas. I’ve worked on other projects that attempt to amend the more violent parts of movies to make them more family friendly (Temple of Doom & TDK Trilogy). I always felt they were received with somewhat of a jeer. I’m fully supportive of this and would love to collaborate if you’d like.

Much appreciated MalàStrana! I checked my project file and it is indicating 5.1. I’ll be checking the wave file to make sure it rendered in 5.1 I’ll also run the file through media info and see what I get. How did you extract the audio?

By the way DigMod is the release of an uncompressed and corrected 5.1 audio track still on your scope ?
Thanks a lot if you do ! 😃

Honestly, I’m not really doing much edit wise right now.

As for the audio. Vegas doesn’t like to spit out large uncompressed audio files for some reason. I’m not sure what you mean by “corrected”.
