Could someone create a star wars opening crawl with these words? I would really appreciate it. :
Episode VI
RETURN OF THE JEDI

Luke Skywalker has returned to Dagobah to complete his training. Meanwhile, Lando Calrissian has infiltrated the palace of Jabba the Hutt, preparing to rescue Han Solo.

Little does Luke know that the GALACTIC EMPIRE has secretly begun construction on a new armored space station even more powerful than the first Death Star.

When completed, this ultimate weapon will spell certain doom for the small band of rebels struggling to restore freedom to the galaxy…

It needs to have the same starfield as the original opening crawl in VI, or just have no starfield (just black) so I can put it into the video. I would do this myself, but my stupid video editing program only has a perspective scroll that goes sideways (what the heck?)

Do they not see the birds controlled in the atmosphere of the sky? none holds them up except Allah. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe. – Quran (16:79)

It looks pretty good, Hans, but I don’t think the bottom five and a half lines are meant to be there. Also, the stars seem a bit too big and the original has always had a bit of a blue tint to it. Almost there though.

Wow that looks better than the one in the movie

Hi hundsdorfex, I risk to be a little off topic because the edit I would like to do is recoloring the “Santino Jr” lost sequence reincorporated in the last Hal9000’s Godfather II revision (@fanedit forums).

As the colored scene before the black and white scene is quite similar, I though the best way was to make a clean background (thanks to all single assembled pieces of frame) in color to avoid recoloring each frame. Hence I would have at least a background colored sequence, and then the characters in darkness would be more quickly recolored.

I know there are several tips for advanced user like rotoscoping or automatic background replacing but I’m a total novice.
The entire B&W sequence is about 5 seconds long.

To put in a nutshell, my questions are :

  • Is it possible (/or would be a big pain for a poor result 😉 ) ?
  • What’s the best way to do it ? (video editor / image editor) ?

I made some quick recoloring and frame assembling tests with an image editor :

Would love your help putting Kylo Ren’s helmet back on his head during the interrogation scene and second scene with Snoke for my TFA edit.

There’s also a scene with Artoo, BB8 and 3PO that I could use assistance on.

I made this custom crawl blender template not too long ago. Feel free to use it.

I may have to try that, unless somebody else makes or has made a custom Backstroke of the West opening crawl.
Either way, it needs to happen.

If you post the text of the crawl that you want, I can make the crawl for you.

Hmm…that crawl on Vimeo definitely could be improved on. Come to think of it, I saw one on YouTube too, but nothing that looks authentic. They have either the wrong font, or odd formatting or something that could be done better.
If you wanted to give it a try, the text is:

STAR WAR
THE THIRD GATHERS
THE BACKSTROKE OF THE WEST

The war came!
The republic encountered
Two squares fight the vehemence
The improbity fills the world
The space general of the alliance is skillful
Kidnap the D the speaker the conduct
The proper abruption alliance troops tries

Nobody is interested to help me in the recoloring project of the black & white low quality scene in Hal9000’s Godfather 2 edit ?

I made some progress recoloring and upgrading the quality image in the background only.

I need to rotoscope the characters and then recolore them. It’s the trickiest part.

oh boy oh boy they let me make an account finally

Do you mind making some opening crawls for me, but in the style of the ones of the Original Trilogy? I tried making the crawls myself, but it ended up looking wrong. Here’s some snapshots showing what I mean. I’m not 100% sure what the difference is, but I think maybe the font is bolded or something, and the crawl might be coming in at a different angle. Please do not add in the Starfield, and additionally, please make the crawl way too slow, like 5 minutes long. I want to put the Starfields in myself, and I want to synchronise the crawls to the music cue. Leave out the subtitle and episode number, it’s not possible to sync it up to the music cue if the crawl has either of those things, without it looking stupid, at least.

The texts are here. There’s no A New Hope or the Empire Strikes Back crawls because I’m just using Harmy for ANH, and using Harmy but covering up the Episode Number and Subtitle for ESB. There’s no the Phantom Menace crawl because I plan on removing the crawl, treating TPM like the anthology it is.

Thank you so much for this post!

Jackpumpkinhead made a revisited version that more closely aligns with Adywan’s.

If you’re responding to me, that’s more of a Plan B, Adywan’s crawls aren’t quite right.

If not, I’m so sorry.

Well, I’d love to help you out more, but each crawl takes a few hours to render. You can change the time positions of the key frames to extend the crawl.
