But regarding the opening scroll issue -- You must have thought of this already, but I have to ask why can't you just use the opening scroll from MagFan's "The Clone War"? I guess I would like this because I really like MagFan's work on "Balance of the Force" but suspect your Episode II cut will supercede his in my book.
I don't really care for that title. The film really isn't about the Clone War, it's about bigger things. Plus, you don't really see much of it in this movie.
Also, I don't have a DVD quality copy of MagnoliaFan's film (and I don't want to try to get it through the mail, because I'm kind of paranoid about personal information being attached to this.)
If you find a way to re-do it, Shroud of the Dark Side would be best, I think.
I like it, too, partly because it's the only one I came up with myself! I just thought it tied everything up nicely, when Yoda said, "The shroud of the Dark Side has fallen. Begun, the Clone War has." It's more of a "big picture" title, like "A New Hope."
I'm 13 and I could do the title in about 2 mins in after effects. Just keyframe a mask with a bit of feathering and put the original footage in track 2, with a random starfield as a mask. Thne put your title "Shroud of the dark side" on top of everything and keyframe it with a bit of 3d perspective.
