Not a fan of Wonder Woman I take it? 😉

Patience my young Padawan. I’ve got a number of recent blu-ray sources on my harddisk that are using up all my space. Once I get a number of those done and out of the way, I might have the 100gb + space required for sources and resulting encodes for FOTR, then I can consider taking it on.

In the meantime there’s a great regrade of FOTR already out there.

Huge difference versus originals for Wonder Woman and Spiderman films KK. How do people find it okay releasing ruined blu-rays with yellow or green tint? They must hurt their profits by covering art in dismal colors. Maybe they hate the world generally and want it ugly.

The Spiderman and WW Bluray colors much closely match the Trailers.

He just uploaded them. Give it a few days.

KK will you be doing 22Gb on this?

I’ve created a 23gb version of this release and written it to a BD25 for my personal collection but IMHO there isn’t enough interest at this point to justify uploading such a large release to a public torrent.

I’ll be keeping an eye on the 2gb and 9gb releases for now, see how things develop.

oh come on boss, I was looking forward for 23GB…oh mann, can’t you add trim on a private file host link how you did on TP
or it’s a long process?

all your fans are on other forums that’s why their isn’t enough interest, hope that changes!!!

After tehparadox went down and all the file host links to my regrades went down with it, continuing to use file hosts was no longer an option. I will be uploading my releases only to torrents from now on and I won’t be changing my mind on that.

Be patient and give it time, I also want to be able to share my work on recent films in as high quality as possible, but the conditions have to be right and they aren’t yet.

ok I undestand! no worries

conditions have to be right - does that mean high demand on your work?

Not being dissentive here but I question how useful 2gb and also 9gb torrents of your regrades to gauge interest in 22gb versions is. Most fans ignore lower bit uploads and the effort to seed them which muddles the results. They then become bored waiting for the ultra quality encodes since all these films have been watchable for weeks or months in various forms already.

There are a number of factors to consider but higher interest (or demand as you put it) than there is now is certainly one of them. Keep in mind that i’ve only been uploading these new regrades to public torrents for a month now.

I’m thinking of testing the waters by uploading the first 23gb version over Christmas as a present to you guys and seeing how it goes. I’ll pick the release with the most seeds at that time.

Are you open to doing a Chanukah release?

If you check the statistics of the torrents, you’ll actually see that the vast majority of downloads are for the 2gb releases, so actually more fans are ignoring the larger 9gb releases than vise versa. The smaller 2gb releases are much more popular than the 9gb releases, that is an undeniable fact.

Watching the seed/peer/number of downloads stats of the 2gb and 9gb releases is the only way to get a good idea of which releases are more popular and decide which releases should get higher bitrate releases. Its not a perfect system but its the best I can think of.

My advice to you is don’t wait, watch the actual blu-ray when it comes out and then wait patiently for a possible 22-23gb release.

It looks better than the original but if I may make a suggestion it looks like maybe you went a tad too far and now it kinda looks like it has a blue tint.

^ Needs to pull the stick out.

If I may suggest, imdb review/votes quantity could presumably determine your release schedule to simplify this distributive process. For perspective, Wonder Woman has on imdb 315,157 votes while Baywatch counts at 76,554 votes. Positive reviews not withstanding, as it is entirely subjective on which is the better movie, this seems a solid method to measure popularity. Then factor in your personal feelings for these films offered to resolve which gets a final regrade.

Maybe he does? Maybe someone (not me) requested Baywatch. I mean, the torrent was popular enough to warrant a higher bitrate torrent. While personally I thought The Shallows was much better, but it still doesn’t have a second torrent, so it’s not as popular.

And as for what he said about the torrent size popularity is true as far as I can tell. I seeded the smaller files at least 10 times over, while struggling to seed the larger files even twice back. (Not because of internet speed but because no one was downloading it). Now I’d love some 22/23 gb files. I’d love GOTG vol 2 done the same as the first one. But we need to be patient.
He’s been doing this for a while now and doesn’t really need us to tell him how he should pick his regrades. and honestly seeding some torrents back to make sure it gains popularity is not as bad as the multipart files from hosting sites you used to have to download, then download again when the bigger size was available.
Also like he said he’s been back at it for like a month with the torrents, let the popularity grow.

The 2gb regrades will always be more popular over their larger counterparts due to their disposability. This is unsurprising, but 9gb aren’t archival quality either so people justifiably are avoiding seeding these intermediate size torrents, giving inconclusive results as popularity is concerned. I’d too love to see GOTG 2 IMAX up but torrents are a fundamentally different bird over filesharing and that may be why KK is being more cautious with any 22gb public releases than he was on the TP. As you said, it has only been a month so it is a wait, be supportive, and see what happens scenario.
