Default New Use for Scenes and Scripting - Star Wars: The Force Awakens G-Rate(?) Version

Start Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens - A movie in 13 Parts with a "G?" rating

I found a new use for scenes and scripting.

My son and his wife asked if I might be able so edit "Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens" so that their 4 year old daughter would be able to watch it.

It took me a while but I was able to do this and generated a movie with 13 parts (scenes). I then wrote a script and tied them all together. I eliminated
Snoke, Rathtars and minimized the violence. It worked out really well.

Last Friday night we had movie night and watched the edited version and my granddaughter loved it! She is still talking about it and asking questions.

I sure hope that we get scripting at some point on the Encore system.

John

Edit: It turned out being 1 hr 46 min long - exactly 30 minutes shorter.

Thats really cool! Well done! My only issue is there is a lag when moving from one scene to the next.

It took about 3 to 4 hours but a lot of that was re-watching and picking what to leave out and then checking out all the scenes and how they splice together. I am a little picky.

Thanks for the update and links for scripting on the Strato. That's encouraging!

Yes, the slight delay is the main drawback. It reminded me of TV series where you have the blank spot for commercials to be inserted. It wasn't too bad and I stopped noticing after the first couple.

I have long mentioned a great use of this is to re-edit Star Wars Episode 1 to remove JarJar Binks from the movie.

It would be really great if there was a way to easily share scripts amongst other users.

It can be done on Premiere systems but not on Encore systems (obviously since there is no scripting capability currently).
