Does anyone have a guide on how I could crop this to 1.85:1? (Would fill more space than 16:9). I haven’t sourced a copy yet, but I may have to wait the blu ray release and rip a copy. I could go through the cropped movie and make note of all the scenes which which need re-adjusting. The whole movie seems like a long chore to do such a thing.
I’m a newbie to video editing, so this would be a slog.

I’m planning on making my own edits for all four of the DCEU films, the ones I’m most interested in being BVS and ZSJL. For ZSJL specifically, I’d keep the 4:3, but cut out stuff that doesn’t need to be there, and have the whole thing be around 3 hours long.
One of my main inspirations for this edit would be this article-

Keeping the aspect ratio intact and 3 hours runtime sounds all good to me! I also agree with basically everything written in the article. There is a good movie hidden under heaps of excess and I think you’re on the right track to unearth it. Good luck with the edit!

Thanks!

I apologize again for constantly going back and forth on this but this will be the last time I change direction. I updated the main info above to as to why I changed my mind but I’m going back to having this edit be taking season one and editing it as a two part film. Season two which I’ve decided to be the only other season I give this treatment will be an exception to this.

For me keep the aspect ratio, and just trim down the epilogue and remove mentions of Bruce’s dreams.

Ah, finally a fellow 4:3 defender! These changes would definitely be my top priorities and for a conservative fanedit (that would please even hardcore fans) those would probably suffice.

Throw me into this camp, too. In most cases I’d prefer my bars on the top, but it worked for JL and BVS. It feels as though the films were meant to be shown that way, and the picture looks more exciting and fixes Snyders problem of shooting so close in many cases. I thought the JL we got in full-screen looked awful, and the aspect ratio was part of the visual improvement

Yeah it’s so obvious now knowing that they cropped in on the image for that film.

Two other things I’d like to change

-Do we even need Arthur meeting Bruce and turning him down? You could just follow him around on his own for a bit, rescuing fishermen and drinking, and then link up Steppenwolf’s attack on Atlantis straight after, similar to how it’s stitched together in the Whedon cut, and then have Arthur follow their trail to Gotham and he meets up with the League that way.

-Don’t have Clark battle the League. I don’t particularly care for that action beat, once he spots his memorial and stares back at the League, just have Lois already there and cut to Lois and Clark touching down on the farm.

Yeah I can see the Supes fights the League scene being cut.

I had also thought about splitting the film into two parts. Part one being around 2 hours and 12 minutes with the ending be the rescue mission and realizing they can bring back Superman and part two is everything else.

Ok so after going through the entire first season and taking notes, the running time for the edit so far is sadly not the four hours I set out to make, but instead around 5 hours and 22 minutes when compared to the around 6 hours and 17 minutes uncut. But I think I’ll continue on with the edit even if it ends up clocking in at five hours instead of four.

Update: Still need to work on it more and a big change im thinking about is just making it one big 6 hour film with two intermissions and if I finish it, release it in two or three files.

At that point it’s just three movies.

At the moment I’m putting all my attention to the four hour long edit for the season. In which I’ve so far by taking notes and going through the season I’ve managed to cut down from 6 hours and 17 minutes (excluding the credits and theme post episode one), to 5 hours and 59 minutes.

Update: After thinking about it, I think I want to give editing the show down to a more film length another shot. If it doesn’t work I go the 6 hour route. The goal for this tho isn’t to cut it down to two hours like the other edits I’ve seen but to cut it down to four hours, which to me is still a relatively more film like length. And this time the intermission will be just one in the middle, probably after chapter four.
