No, it's not necessary to cut and use the complicated triangular piece. One practical and creative solution -- combining molding profiles to create a custom, built-up crown -- will minimize most gaps when installing crown molding on an uneven ceiling. Steeper sloped ceilings are problematic because the horizontal pieces of crown molding may not fit well against the wall or the sloped ceiling. A strip will probably have to be tapered to fill much of the gap, but it does not have to come down to a point because the molding will cover much of the gap.

Crown molding can give any room a touch of elegance and sophistication. Another option, and probably more tedious would be to try and build up the ceiling with joint compound and feather it in.

That's not going to look good either. Or just one or the other? The idea is to give that joint a nice clean look. If you have access to thickness plane, I would thin down the flat crown backers as much as you can. Hold the pencil at this angle and draw the line from end to end on the molding. A similar molding is usually used on the wall, as well.

Use that to determine the exact low point of where the two pieces of crown will touch in the corner on the wall. Many homes have rooms with uneven ceilings, which can make installation difficult because the molding does not sit flat against the ceiling. Then 3 years later you'll remember it again and wonder where you did that like I am now.
Traditionally, crown molding is placed on the point of intersection where the wall meets the ceiling. Consider putting the finished photo first, however this is not a requirement. Pro-tip on crown: cut a couple 2x4s at a 45 and chop off the point to create a quick jig that will help position the crown at 45 degrees to the wall.
