The Prequel Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

So in light of the "TFA" teaser, what do you guys think of making Palpatine's lightsaber unstable looking like the new villain. I heard that in the original storyboards for ROTS Palpatine was supposed to have a flame like lightsaber. Regardless, if the new lightsaber is actually an ancient lightsaber like some of the rumors suggest then it might be kinda cool if palpy is wielding an old lightsaber.

Windu's Blue Lightsaber (Resources) [Updated 1/25/15 - EP2 AVAILABLE NOW] *** See First Post***
Time

I have been in a long time lurker on this site. I have not yet been able to contribute anything, until now. I love all of the fan edits I have have seen come from this site. However the most common change almost everyone misses is Mace Windu's lightsaber. I have never been able to understand why his lightsaber is purple while the rest of the Jedi in the movies lightsaber colors were either blue or green. So I decided to change the color of his light saber from purple to blue.

I have been able to achieve this using after effects. You simply draw a Blue colored mask around the light saber. Then change the blend options to color. Then you can adjust the feather and mask expansion to your liking so that you have the right color that you want.

My goal is to release raw, HD versions of these new scenes of Mace's new colored Lightsaber in blue & green for fan edits. 

I am currently working on attack of the clones, and when I get an opportunity I will be working on revenge of the Sith as well.

Modus Operandi
Time

as the title of this topic suggests, what is the usual methood or step by step way you actually make a fan edit? obviously you rip your source, load it into whatever editing software you are using and make your edits. but after that, what. do you output uncompressed and then encode?

for example, i am planning an edit of AOTC, using a copy of adobe premiere cs3 and adobe after effects. now, ive not done much work with adobe premiere, i actually havent even installed it yet, do i have a option to output to mpeg or whatever or should i use an external encoder? how do i go about doing that?

also i am going to do some audio editing, what are the best programs for ac3 audio editing?

Info Wanted: Your 'go to' versions of the PT
Time

i think for me, the reson i enjoy l8twr's TPM is the fact that he makes it make sense, i have watched a bit of his version of AOTC and i am not sure of a few things left in. i hear that HAL's version is really good but d/ling every piece from mega is a pain. i got a myspleen but no one has been seeding it. 

i think my biggest beef with the fan edits is the change of the titles of the movies. i understand that it is a way for each individual editor identify their work, but i like the names of TPM and ROTS. the only title i would change is AOTC. to me it just doesnt make sense. that is why i have been changing the opening crawl to my liking for each of the edits i am calling my definative versions.

Info Wanted: Your 'go to' versions of the PT
Time

since we are now on the cusp of ESB:R i have been looking into replacing my PT DVD’s with better fanedits. i have already decided to go with L8twr’s Shadow of the Sith for TPM (though i did redo the crawl to reinstate the original title and trim it to 3 pargraphs instead. i also chnged the wording a bit too). I havent decided what wil replace AOTC, though any edit would polish that turd. so my question is, what are your favorite edits of the PT and why?
