Hi again! Watching your edit has provided me with some wonderful inspiration for my own work, and we’ve turned out to have very similar ideas for some areas (especially the wordless prologue and the placement of Bard taking out the Black Arrow). I love that stuff like this can be made and shared.

I’m returning to this thread as I had a few more questions pertaining to editing, which are pretty specific to this edit.

There are two things you made in your edit that I would love to be able to do for my own as well: the new credits and the VFX ‘Intermission’ title.

How do you go about making an all-new credits sequence? Are there templates you can get somewhere, do you replicate it from the original films, or do you just have to do the entire thing by hand?

What programs would you recommend for learning basic VFX to make that ‘Intermission’ text? You don’t have to put a full tutorial for the effect down here, that could get complex (though some starter tips wouldn’t hurt 😃)

On another note, would it be possible to re-use some of the custom VFX shots you have in this edit, and if so whose permission will I need to ask for? (I mainly aim to use this edit for private viewing, but if it turns out well I might end up sharing it.)
