On screen text, especially the text in GotG 1&2 is my bane. I’m trying to make consistent date and location texts (especially when it comes to font) and move the logos and credits to the beginning and end, but these two movies can be a pain in the neck about it.

You can do a cheap solution and do an overlay OVER the existing txt. Like a black bar with new text. I believe you could use a blurring tool to make the black bar auto-match colors with the surrounding background.

Won’t look that great but better than cutting the scene.

I was thinking about putting text cards detailing which universe Endgame stuff takes place in. This is especially to help contradictory scenes that might be running close in time. Simultaneous contradictory scenes would be pretty easy to digest (such as the opening of GotG1 with the Morag scene from Endgame), but something like Loki escaping in Endgame will be just two scenes before he’s shown captured and sent to Asgard (from Avengers 1). What do you guys think? Also, how should the six different timelines be named, since I can’t seem to find any official names?

PM me if you’re interested, but it also sounds like our fanedits are pretty different.

You could name each timeline after the movie events that Endgame revisted.
I.e.
2012 - Loki timeline
2013 - Asgard timeline
2014 - Guardians timeline
and so forth.

By coincidence, I am also working on a similar edit. Mine has a slightly different goal, though–it’s to shave down as much as possible to make it a streamlined series. It’d be aimed at NON-superhero audiences who prefer drama over action.

I’m calling it Game of Marvels, patterned after Game of Thrones in the style of cutting between different characters.

So it’s chronological as well, but very very specifically focused on certain characters. Many things will be cut if they don’t impact the overall narrative (i.e. the fake Mandarin).

Perhaps we can exchange notes?

Ideas for a fan edit of Avengers: Infinity War
Time

FreezingTNT said:

I have some ideas for a fan edit of Avengers: Infinity War. Here’s my ideas:

  1. I know this will be really hard to do, but change the timezone in the post-credits scene with Nick Fury, because it’s not possible for New York to be in daytime while it’s daytime in Wakanda as well.

It’s possible. Africa can still have daylight when the sun is up in New York.

The sounds are entirely unfinished, as I haven’t really isolated the dialogue or completed the saber sound effects. This is a proof of concept more than anything.

I like it. The only problem of course is that they constantly change location from one shot to another.
I think we should put other scenes between different parts of the duel. If we don’t want Yoda going to Palpy, though, it’s really complicated, because apart from Yoda meditating we don’t have other scenes that could happen during the duel on Mustafar.
I like the music and the sound effects.

PS: Or we could… I don’t know, maybe add some dissolve effect between different parts of the duel. If done well, it could show the passing of time.

This is what you can do with Palpatine and Yoda: make their battle mental.

If someone can get shots of Palpatine, or at least a robed figure, meditating, then Yoda and Palpatine’s battle can be a mental one where they project each other into each other’s minds. Thus you can cut to, say, the various shots of Yoda concentrating in pain spliced with the actual physical battle footage. Maybe use shots of Yoda collapsing in pain during the Jedi purge when he loses to Palpatine. Could overlay the Palps vs Yoda footage with a green or red filter to show it’s in the mind. A REALLY good editor could go one step further and add a ghostly affect to either Yoda or Palps to have them fighting Luke vs Kylo style.

Or if that’s too complex, then just reorder the Jedi purge to be happening DURING the Obi-Wan/Anakin battle to make it extra tragic that it all collapses at once.

this might take a lot of dubbing but make naboo aladaren. so when naboo is getting attacked we feel sad and depreseed because we know what happens in a new hope

If there had been a plausible way to do this, I would. But since nobody in TPM says the name “Alderaan”, it would be pretty weird to never speak of the planet that is being evaded, and remove all mention of Naboo.

There may be someone who says “Alderaan” in the audiobooks or similar media.

Something that’s always irked me is how this shot is static:

We’re about to be introduced to our lead characters and the camera isn’t doing anything? Not anymore!

Most people think that’s a boring way to introduce the main characters, but imagine if Lucas had gone with his original idea:

This would explain the slightly empty right hand side.

I always thought that the ORIGINAL deleted opening scene from Phantom, while strange, would be interesting to see on screen.

natedeug's The Last Jedi Polished edit V3 (FINAL)
Time

The thing about the southern Stormtrooper scene is that, with a bit of searching, better dialogue could be inserted easily after removing Tom Hardy’s jokey lines. Since all you need is dialogue that intimidates Finn, you could theoretically have the trooper say anything. It doesn’t have to be recognition, it could be something like “Officer, is there something the matter?” and a single line from Jon Boyega saying “…No.”

With the right music cue and timing it’d work great.

There may be a way to use the audiobook to expand some scenes.

For example, TFA has more Snoke dialogue and exposition about his motivations and character, used here to expand a scene where he talks to Kylo:

Perhaps a similar idea can be used with TLJ.

Speaking of voiceovers, I believe the Disney Infinities video game line uses some voice actors from TFA. There may be some sources of dialogue there too.

On a different note, perhaps there would be a way to combine some of the dialogue from the Phasma deleted scene with the current scene. The unfinished scene’s SFX make it hard to use, but maybe some splicing could make it work.
