Observed:
The first chapter cutscene with Caelar and Hephernaan and The Hooded Man felt empty

Expected:
his scene is far too empty. Give it some surrounding Crusaders that are watching the proceedings - The Barghest and Ashatiel could be present.

In this scene, Caelar has allowed THM an audience - she knows nothing about him, so it's likely she wouldn't just trapse into the woods to meet some random Wizard. They likely met up in the field as she's busy riding around causing a ruckus right now. Have a column of disparate crusaders marching by on the side, coming in from off screen and disappearing off screen. We're trying to give the impression of a powerful and large army on the march, in contrast with the FF that we just saw leaving BG.

Another powerful element might be refugees and captive being herded by the Crusaders.

Notes:
Internal report #19651

Make Irenicus cast spells more rapidly like he does in the BG2 cutscenes
