I was rewatching the ‘Chronologically Lost’ edit recently and while it was nice to revisit, it was certainly feeling dated now with its quality, which was expected being done around the time the series was finishing and even Mike himself said doing it in HD would be quite a task.
Fan edits isn’t something I’ve done much of, so I wasn’t sure if this was something I could do,. Surely is something I would have liked to see if someone else had done it but no idea who would want to re-edit all 100+ episodes again. 😄
The big thing that’ll help with this remaster is a consistent source used for all episodes as the original did have areas that had HDTV recording used (Season 6 area) and certain episodes that were stretched (S2E9 What Kate Did was more horizontally stretched), as well as being edited in 30fps (for some reason).
As far as split screens go, for the most part it’s the same as the original, but I’ve replaced a couple with switching back and forth between perspectives if it felt better or made more sense narratively (which is ironic for an edit like this 😄 ). Also tidied up the split screens as well:
[Left=Original, Right=HD Remaster]
Video: 1080p 15mbps, Audio: DD 5.1 640kbps (Webisodes upmixed to 5.1), English CC subs
The edits finished now and currently making an x265 version for a smaller release, but that’ll take a while so if you don’t mind the larger file size (500gb at least), feel free to PM me if you’re interested.
