One of my many items of never ending things-to-do has been at the request of my son, Jaryn, to produce a video “short” of him as a Jedi. Well, after hours of rotoscoping, PhotoShop editing, and more rotoscoping, to get the right light saber effects, I was able to put together this mildly feeble video short for my kids.
I used VideoLAN to capture clips and screen shots off of the original movie, then Pinnacle Studio Ultimate to compile the video. I was able to find light saber sound effects online, but I compiled the audio for the introduction using GoldWave. I also used Nero Burning ROM to create a VCD to be able to show it on our “big screen” T.V.
