I am very new to fan-editing, and have a technical question for anyone who might be able to answer.
During TV shows, there is a period after the opening title sequence where the regularly scheduled program is airing. In some shows, there will be the names of producers/actors/crew members pasted during the program.
E.G. Law & Order: SVU has their main hook sequence to attract the viewer (usually the crime unfolds), then the opening credits, the next scene could be back in the police station, but as the characters are talking about the crime more “Guest Stars”, “Associate Producers”, etc. are named in the lower left and lower right corners. These flash in and out.
I am trying to place scenes in different parts of episodes, but it is proving difficult with the names flashing in and out. A viewer will be distracted and notice that scene they are watching was originally from the beginning of the episode.
Does anyone have any suggestions to remove the names? I really want to avoid any cropping of the footage.
