    Hey, I remember in one of the threads a while back, someone mentioned a site where they explain how to actually write the Opening Crawl. Meaning they went into how many lines each paragraph has, what type of word to start paragraph 1/2/3, etc. I checked the first page of this thread, but all of the tutorials are for making the effect, and not for constructing the text. Does anyone know what site this is and have a link?

    I can't remember the exact place we talked about it here, but perhaps it was this thread or this thread? If not you might try a search similar to this one for ideas. Hope that's helpful. :)

    :eek: Sweeeeet. Thanks Fig. [face_peace]


    And regarding the opening crawls, I don't know the site you're talking about off the top of my head but there's a lot of info on the offical SW site that may give you some ideas. :D

    In my wandering, I found the Fan Audio Made Easy series - which has a ton of great advice. A six-part series on storytelling, a three-part series on voice acting, and two episodes on casting - it's great. And with just a little tweaking, it's easy to adapt the advice Nathan and Rich give to fanfilms.

    nyar.

    Is there a tutorial out there somewhere that tells you how to create that old film look? Basicly the look that has all the old scratches and dirt makrs. For an example, look at the film "Your Lightsaber and You" on the Atomfilms web sight.



    Edit: In A.E. 5.5

    You don't do 3D stuff in AE, outside of compositing already-rendered video.

    Yeah. You can do it with masks and solids, as in a lightsaber, or with radial blurs and solids, or many other methods. There aren't really any tutorials for it (other than one I wrote a looooong time ago, and not sure where it is), since the effect is so vague. Once you learn the basics of AE, you're sure to come upon your own method. Just put some thought and effort into it.

    I'd recommend using this. You text really needs to be justified and not centered. Included in there is a project file for AE 6.5 by DV, it looks highley realitic. I'd check with him before using it for you own film though. If he allows it, just change the text and render it out.
