The Clone Wars: Refocused - A new holistic approach inspired by the Mandalorian [FOUR EPISODES RELEASED]
Time

Basically, aslong as the render settings matches the frame rate of the source. You shouldn’t have a problem. I always checked before hand since alot of source files tell you the frame rate in the video info.

Alternatively you can create a new project at the source frame rate. CTR+A your existing project and paste it into the new one. Think it’s worked for me.

Hey buddy, I had this issue with The Clone Wars and the framerate. Although the project settings are at 25.000, you can still render it in the preferred 23.976. in the render settings, you can edit the preset of the file type, the frame rate, as well rendering quality can be altered there 😃 So if I’m right, there well be no need to start from scratch. I was always a bit confused when I rendered a video, it looked fine in Vegas 😂

The Force Awakens - 'The End' Edition (WIP)

^ what he said. The Yoda scene can be used to help Luke realise that with Rey, he should train her outside of the old Jedi traditions.

It’s a very warm scene which then can lead into the Luke/Rey training scene. The whole thing should feel quite triumphant.

The TROS training scene could just be useful the improve the pacing a tad. It’s basically Rey swinging and slicing. It could even be cut in to pretend that she’s doing this on the island itself with a touch of recolouring .

For a rough proof on concept, I can see what youre trying to acheive. This is gonna work gloriously. My only concern is maybe the final scene, the montage is great but it is cut off quite short for the end of the saga. I’m sure you could find a scene from The Last Jedi or Rise of Skywalker to amend that though. I’m really looking forward to this 😃

Ok I would like to apologize then for my comment. I see now that you were only trying to use others edit to compare and for no other reason.

The idea sounds great. Mandalorians way of story telling can significantly benefit the Clone Wars and having a mix of smaller, standalone episodes and more lengthy, show defining ones will be a great watch all round.

I think the tagging system will work well as almost a built in viewers guide. It’s gonna do the show a whole lot of good.

With my thin-skinned comment put aside, I wish you luck in this project.

That’s fair to be honest- I just guess I made it easier for younger people or slower readers.

If anyone does want to add too, remove from, restructure or take inspiration from these edits feel free. If you do decide to share and host your versions, just do it in a now forum and give a small credit.

After all, it’s about us fans finding the best way to watch their beloved franchise 😃

The Mandalorian Episode 2 (WIP) - <em>Season 2 SPOILERS</em>
Time

szopman said:

For me, at this moment So far, the best aproach is to include most of the 1st ep, the beggining of the 2nd, and then transition to 3rd.for eg. they meet the NT patrol, the mando starts to escape, then some nice transition to him landing with His piece of junk on the water planet. It would suggest the obvious outcome of the meeting with the Xwings 😉 or do a transition from him saying it May go wrong without hyperspace goin, and then we See the wreckage of His ship landing 😅

I second this idea. It’ll add to the comedy the landing scene originally had.

Ok gang, Star Wars- The Clone Wars I-VI (Kane’s Edits) have been released! After a year of planning and practising I’ve brought you guys a series I’m very happy with. Perfect for a prequel era marathon in my opinon. So yeah, PM me if you would like links.

Also, use this forum to discuss what you think of them. If anyone wants an in depth run down on any film feel free to ask on here to.

This show has been great to work on since I was 10 when the 2008 film came out and throughout the series I always wished the show could of released feature length cuts of certain stories. So I ended up doing that… at 22.

Now, I think I may start planning my next Star Wars project… after a short break 😉

Enjoy guys!

I think the text crawl is something I’m having the most trouble with. I’m terrible at wording things. But here’s what I’ve got down at the moment:

Episode I:
A Galaxy Divided! More systems have alligned with the Seperatists in their war against the Republic.
Crime Lord Jabba The Hutt also seeks help as his son has been kidnapped by a rival band of pirates.
Can the Jedi bring peace to these corrupt Separatist planets and to the Hutt Clan?

Episode II:
Seperatist Leader Poggle The Lesser has returned to Geonosis to counteract its Republic control.
Using the once-captured planet, he creates terrifying new droid factories to fight the Jedi’s Clone Army.
Can the Republic recapture Geonosis and shut down Poggle’s factories once and for all?

Episode III:
Showdown! Anakin Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi have clashed with Asajj Ventress in the Sullust system.
However, this battle will not go how Count Dooku’s prized assassin had planned it.
What lies in the future for Ventress, as she leads her ships into this galactic dogfight?

Episode IV:
After another clash with Obi Wan Kenobi, Darth Maul and Savage Opress were left for dead and stranded in space.
Heavily wounded, they are now in the care of Death Watch, an exiled group on Mandalore led by Pre Visla.
Why does this feared organization share a similar hatred for the Jedi and Obi Wan Kenobi?

Episode V:
Years have passed since Padawan Ahsoka Tano was appointed to Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker for training.
Her skills far surpass those of her age and sometimes rival those of her master.
However, a plot is looming in the Underworld. What could it be? How will it change Ahsoka’s life forever?

Episode VI (Set after ROTS):
Before the rise of the Empire, the Republic struggled to end the fabled Clone War.
Jedi Generals were dispatched beyond the core worlds to fight for the Republic’s survival.
Commander Cody and the 212th were trapped on Yerbana, moments before the historic attack on Coruscant…

As you can guess, Each line is each ‘page’ in the crawl, theres enough time in the opening to make the crawl a tad long but I feel I just need some help tweaking a few lines.

Also after a few test renders. These babys wont take long. I’m just interested on knowing what file sizes suit people. In the test renders the movies where coming out from 10-12Gb. I’m wondering if people want them down to about 5-7Gb?

Hey guys. Just Letting you know the credits have been finished. I used a bit of a cheat method but the creators behind each episode get their name on the screen.

To answer some replies:

. I am using Sony Vegas Pro for editing, which is more than capable for what I needed it for. I am editing them as Mp4 but my aim was to make them as losless quality as possible on my end. But of course when rendering it, I will aim to keep each movie 8GB or under; so compression might be nessecary.

. Expanded Universes- I noticed your edits down here! It was cool to see someone was on my wavelength. With regards to how I handled CWIV. It was the only way I can picture the S2 Mando arc fitting into one of the movies. Having that arc on its own wouldn’t be flashy enough (or long enough). I also tried all with intercutting it with CWI or CWII. But this way works best.

Another thing about The Clone Wars IV is that in order to keep the story Mandalore themed and to have Pre Visla capture Maul at the beginning. S05E01 (Revival) has been cut from the edits. It just breaks the flow too much. In the CWIV crawl, I give a small explination that the Maul brothers clash with the jedi a 2nd time and are now left for dead in space. I think the average viewer wouldn’t dive too deeply into it.

If anyone cares about what I’ve written for the text crawls, I’m happy to give some exerpts.
