Maul: Son of Dathomir (Released!) — Page 2

I liked it but maybe a better transition into ”twins suns” when obi wan says “Darth Maul alive”. I think it would be better if it did not fade out.

I think you have to import your own still for the starfield behind the crawl.

Yeah, I though so too at first. But when I try and remove the background using after effects it didn’t work. Has anyone made a crawl for an edit before?

Here friend, try this video. I hope it helps you.

It was made by a member here, williarob.

I mean in the Blender project itself. There’s a thread for that, isn’t there? Maybe try asking there? I’ve not messed with it that much.

I watched this edit and I really think it tells the story of Maul really well. It did a pretty good job of incorporating twin suns and it felt pretty consistent with the characters and the story. Only criticisms is probably just some of the editing was off a bit, but other than that this was really good.

I mean that’s literally everything. It is a fan edit, after all.

Where exactly was the editing off? I’ll go back and fix any problems (unless they can’t be fixed- some scenes had dialogue right before or after that prevented a longer transition and the crawl end was… difficult).

Everything worked for me it was just the ending with twins suns. My problem with it was that it felt kind of choppy with the filters but after when Darth Maul hits the fire with his lightsaber and there were no more filters it was fine.

I see, do you think I mix the filter altogether? I wanted it to be clear that it was not chronological connected, as if it was a force vision. When Maul hits the fire it goes regular, as we are now in correct chronological order. But maybe it only came off confusing.

I found it hard to transition back and forth to twin sims, especially at the finale. I
wish the clone wars hadn’t been canceled and his arc continued, as the arupt transition is not ideal.

I dont think it came off confusion, I actually like the idea of making it regular to show that we are now in a correct chronological order. It was just the transition felt abrupt and the editing made the scene feel a little rushed, but if you can’t fix it thats totally fine because as you said, mauls story arc was not complete.

Jackpumpkinhead and myself have both made custom crawl creators. Feel free to use either. My tool is at my website and a quick look through the forum will get you Jack’s.

Thanks for letting me know! I plan to release a second version of this edit was Season 7 drops, which will fix the story’s conclusion. I will have another go with the crawl then!

Hey I just had the chance to watch this edit. I just wanna say it’s an awesome edit and I love what you did with the story. Keep up the good work!!

Thank you! With Season 7 nearly here, I plan to redo this edit as a duology to get the entire story (the old ending to Maul’s story was so abrupt!). It all depends when they release Season 7. Hopefully, it won’t be Disney Plus exclusive, and we’ll get a DVD this summer.

I doubt we’ll get a DVD this summer. For the first several seasons there was a wait of about 5-7 months between the last episode airing and the home media release. I’d expect a similar wait time from the end of Season 7 to the DVD/Blu-Ray release.
