No, this has nothing to do (directly) with Lucasfilms. While I was messing around with Windows Movie Maker (WMM), I discovered that it has a customisable opening title sequence, Star Wars style. So I just elaborated from there, and came up with this really short and really low-res animation.
While it loads on your computer (it’s 5MB in size so be patient ), here’s a teaser:
Opening titles & credits done in WMM, The rest is Blender. For Earth, I followed a planet tutorial somewhere here (can’t remember); the Death Star is a simple 2D plane with a Targa image I picked off the net.
And since this involves WMM, I’ve posted this in the off-topic forums as well.
