It is hard not to take comments like this personally when it is literally the very first post after issuing a new release. I’ve tried to walk a fine line between those who complain that my edits are too big and won’t run on their hardware and those who complain that my edits aren’t high-quality enough. I’m in a no-win situation. I either provide a high-quality release that some people will gripe about not being able to run or I release a lower-quality release that is just not good enough for some.

While part of me hopes that the last 2 movies in this series get made, another part of me hopes this is the end and I don’t have to release any further versions. The fun was taken out a couple of years ago when my draft clips were taken from my site and were used to create versions not made by me but with my name all over them. I pulled my edits at that time, ready to walk away from the community. I came back after a few months and provided them again. Since that point, it has been a constant set of complaints. It is not fun releasing anymore for this reason.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but there isn’t a way for me to not take it personally when that is the primary type of message I get. No one is satisfied. No one is thankful. No one will just enjoy what has been provided to them. I’m not charging for these. They are freely available. If it isn’t good enough quality, delete them or don’t download them to start with.

Short of another FB movie coming out, this will be my final release. Even then, I am not sure I will publicly release anything I create for myself going forward. I’m tired of trying to please everyone and ending up pleasing no one.
