I've just checked through my hard drives, and I have the DVD5 version of this and the 2 avi workprint version. If there is some interest I could put them on usenet.

Are the versions identical, just different formats?  Because, yeah, usenet would be great (or Mega, or whatever).

The avi's come with a note at the beginning saying it's a pre-release and that some effects are incomplete. The DVD looks to be the finished article with menus and special features. I'll upload them both to usenet so people can check them both out.

The DVD is a later version?  I didn't know that happened.  Cool.

The only DVD I made has the same content as the AVIs, but it was encoded from the source files, so it has fewer compression artifacts.  But its the same version of the movie, and I don't remember putting a menu on it, but I may have put something simple.  It will still have a the text description at the front.

 

Is it possible you have the DVD version of the OTHER Son of Jorel edit?

Booshman? The Fan-Edit Booshman? Where have you been?!

I’m just here because I’m driving tonight.

I've been around. Not had a lot of free time of late so I've not been posting much anywhere. My Superman II HD edit is still on the cards but when I'll have time to make some good progress I'm not sure.

Alright, just making sure nothing bad had happened. Your S2 fan-edit was looking promising, I'd hoped it wasn't retired.

Was this DVD ever uploaded to usenet?

 Turned out the version I had was of the other Son of Jor-El edit.

 I found a copy of the two DVDs, and will be uploading to piratebay soon.

Crap.  I got copies and now I cant find them.  I'll make a concerted effort to round them up asap and I'll post here when I've uploaded them.

Sorry!

 That sounds like me.  At least they exist.

Ok, my friend, its on pirate bay.  A search using the terms Superman Classic Taolar and should bring it up!

Boy, it looks old.  How did we not notice how bad standard definition looks??  Its like VHS now!  Dang...

I hope its worth your while though.  Thanks for your seaseless support Doctor M.  :)

Hey, thanks for your work.  It really was a good idea that you an unbelievable amount of work into.

So you're saying your going to start again in HD, right? ;)

Hahah.  Thanks.  I doubt that will happen.  But I occasionally get an itch to finish it in HD, so I'm not ruling it out entirely.

Pros:

1. The original Superman II is now available in HD.

2. Almost all of my FX work was done with HD footage.

Cons:

1. All my original files are on crashed hard drives that won't mount.

2. No time.  I run my own business and have a new baby on the way.

3. Since the new movies aren't sequels to Superman Returns, my ending is kind of pointless.

There are new Superman movies?  (Not as far as I'm concerned.)

In light of recent casting I don't have much hope for the next one either.

You wouldn't think a Superman movie would be that difficult.

Just noticed that the DVD uses PCM audio.  Did you do some remastering that made lossless a good choice?

Edit: For that matter are the DVD and AVI versions the same release?  I've seen at least one flaw on the DVD not on the XviD.

The edits should be identical, except that the DVD has the letterboxing hard coded.  The Divx just has those parts cropped out because I noticed some weird digital anomalies that Premiere introduced.  What flaw did you notice?

I didn't do anything different with the edit, audio-wise.

I'm surprised at the interest!  I've personally uploaded over 100gb since posting.  And that doesn't include all the other seeders.  I saw 30+ at one time downloading it.  I wish more people would comment.
