Saturday 6th June 2020
As you can see This Thread has been dead for over a decade.
The main reason I stopped was when I first started I was working with Superman 2 International Cut…
As I was working with it and had a lot done The movies got re-released with a better quality of the movie,
Full aspect ratio etc, as I was working with different aspect ratio all my work seemed to be wasted, so I gave up…

Still now and again I would go back and try different things
My skills got better, Better PC etc etc
Iv left the original post below just so you can see what was trying to do back then…

SUPERMAN 2 CRYSTAL EDITION TEASER DOWNLOAD HERE

The making EFFECTS 1

one thing i like to add wen converting this teaser for the upload the quality is crap and the colors are messed
so i do apologise for that…

OK Been working on this thing for a while
sorry haven’t been in touch,
Work was getting Heavy so wasn’t getting the time to work on this
as I was working on this I learnt how to do certain effects
so I went back and did some stuff and improved them
mostly they’ve been suttle touches here and there as i didn’t wanna over do them

So I made a short Teaser Music was sent to me by someone on the Forums
I do apologise as I forgot the name
but I’m sure that person will reply and ill find out who it was

there other bits i wanted to include in the Teaser but i didn’t wanna put to much in for the hell of it
above is just a ruff version of the DVD cover don’t know if it will be the final one but i was just seeing what i can come up with

Once again THANKS RIK i read your comment the other day on here that you haven’t heard from me
and I felt a little BAD as i thought I was letting down people with this project
THER IS NOWAY I WILL EVER GIVE UP THIS VERSION OF THIS FILM

Comments below are from way Back nothing new added below

HI THERE
I’m new here and this is my First Thread
I’m from the UK and working on Superman 2 Crystal Edition
which includes
superman 2
superman 2 RIC
superman 2 Green Cut

Iv been working on it a while now
Rik On here has given me Much needed support and plenty of advice
SO I owe him BIG TIME

the reason I’m doing this Project is
When I Watched Superman 2 RIC I was amazed with the work that went into that
so I wanted to have a go to… But put far more time into bringing up to Crystal Clear
or the best I could get it
Above Is A ruff cut of what Iv done

But take a look and download from LINK

MARLON BRANDO HAS BEEN EDITED BACK IN

It was probably making of Superman 2. I haven't actually seen it, but was told it had the only glimpse of a scene being shot with Reeves and Brando face to face in the Fortress of Solitude set.

My old boss Peter Watson worked on Superman and Superman II as optical and special effects editor! I think he is featured in one of those documentaries mentioned. I would love to see him - is anyone able to check the docos?

I am also looking forward to this Crystal edition!

GREAT thread Sky!

I really like that you are sharing the work as it progresses! The full intro really plays well with the added clips, and your 3D titles are so cool, it reallly is neat that you've taken the time to redo the whole intro and add effects to it!!!

I also ment to ask if you will be releasing both NTSC & PAL versions and DVD5 & DVD9?

and as I’ve stated once you finish thi up I would proudly & happily send copies to my seeder team and forward copies for a newsgroup release!

I'm working on several Different segments in the Film
Mostly Putting SOme effects in
Once there done
I can Join All the segments together

Sky, what type of file is your Superman II intro clip? Perhaps you could try saving it as a WMV or AVI file. The quality won't be as good but at least it will be a smaller file, thus you will be able to upload it using yousendit more quickly.

Sorry Sky but I can't get the torrent link you emailed me to work.

Forgive me but I've never used torrent files before, and my computer just doesn't recognise the file type.
