I completely agree that WB left a lot of money out there. I have read so many posts from people that wanted extended versions, like myself, which is why I made my edits in the first place. I know there is a lot of footage out there that was shot, but we have never seen it. I am hopeful that one day this material will see the light of day.

Any advice one how to reduce the file sizes of your 10k Edits as Handbrake doesn’t seem to be able to do it without losing picture quality

You can try adjusting the setting in Handbrake to leave picture quality the same, but reduce the bitrate from 10000 to something like 4000 or 5000.

Hello~! Thank you for making these edits, as I had really wanted to see some extended edition options (wonder why WB hasn’t done so…).

Could I please have the links? 😃

Any ideas on to lower the size of your 10K files without losing any quality to 4GB or smaller as Handbrake can’t seem to get them that low unlike with your 5K files?

I tried converting the file again and it didn’t change the file size either

For a long time, I have wanted to create a set of extended editions to the HP films since it does not look like they will ever be released on DVD/Blu-Ray. With the extended versions coming to an end on FreeForm at the end of the year, I have been working for the past few months on putting my own set of extended editions together. My intent on the project was to create a set closely mimicking the FreeForm extended editions, but not matching them.

While these are my first fan edits for a film, I have had video editing experience in the past. I am using Final Cut Pro X as my editor and Adobe Audition for sound editing. The first of my submissions has been approved at FanEdit and will be up on IFDB once everything is finalized to change me over to a FanEditor. These film versions will only have stereo audio, mainly due to me only have stereo for my playback and some of the scenes needing music from the original soundtracks, which was only in stereo. I do plan on working on 5.1 edits in the future. Material for the edits are Blu-Ray rips of the films including the deleted scenes as well as the soundtrack audio files.

PMs can be sent to me to receive download information. You MUST own a legal version of the original movies before downloading. I do not support illegal downloading or viewing of these movies.

I watched some of Deathly Hallows 1 on Syfy tonight. They had inserted the rabbit chase scene, still without the finished effects. Very weird.

I’m not a real fan of the edits that USA/SyFy did when they took over the franchise. In my opinion, the ABC Family/Freeform extended versions, while not perfect, flowed much better than these newer ones.

I always figured Warner provided ABC/etc. with the extended cuts, but it sounds like they are homebrew by whomever has the broadcast rights at the moment.
It definitely explains why the official (physical media) extended cuts of 1 & 2 differ from prior versions.

I’m just surprised Warner allows it at all.

Hey JJ I saw some of the previews and I am utterly impressed. I have all the movies on blu-ray and was wondering if I could get the download information? It would be much appreciated.

Hi ! Thanks you for your hardwork.
I’ve been looking for a version of the movies like yours for years!

I’m pretty sure that I once saw a modified version of the sixth movie at a friend, but I’ve never been sure.
I already have all the movies (for some I also have a VHS version), but I’ve been buying the ultimate edition box for the first and the second, in order to have more screen time. I know that the other movies don’t offer additional time (even with the ultimate edition), and I’ve been wondering what to do.

Could you, please, share the links of the movies with me ?

Wishing you the best !!

Hi JJ, we love your work. It’s been a Christmas tradition for a number of years to watch all HP and FF films over the holidays. Since finding your work, we’ve never gone back to other versions.

I was reading the topic over again, and noticed you mentioning some possible new edits, as for example the complete Dudley redemption scene. Have you had a chance to add these already? I saw it on your vimeo channel, and it really adds a lot to the Dursleys’ story.

I’m glad you are enjoying the edits. I have a hard time watching the “official” ones now because I know where all of the deleted material goes. The originals don’t feel complete. I appreciate the kind words.

In all honesty, I haven’t worked on the edits in a while. I had a death in our family back in August which has knocked the wind out of my sails for a bit. I am getting the itch again to get back into editing to get my mind off of things. I have a small portion of the Dudley Redemption completed (the first few seconds with the wide shot of Vernon talking to Harry, saying this is farewell). In that part I have the green screen completely removed and it looks good. The next part is a bit more complicated since there are a couple of green screen areas along with camera movement. Once I get those set up, I should be able to complete that scene, which is the one scene I feel should have never been cut.

Keep an eye on the topic thread for updates.
