Sadly the GDrive upload for this is currently having a Download quota exceeded message, so it can’t be downloaded right now, didn’t think it’d reach it that quick being via private message (or unless someone shared the link to a public place which I hope wasn’t the case). No idea how long it’s gonna do it for though, been a few days already. If it persists much longer, may have to look into Mega or somewhere else anyone can recommend for a reupload.

PM sent, Eddie.

This edit aside from minor edits and changes, is the same as the Chronologically LOST edit that’s been around for a while, just rebuilt using the Blu-ray set. So this starts from the birth of Jacob & MiB to the Island events in 2007 and has the Flash-sideway events all together in an Epilogue set.

I’ve never watched Lost Chrono, only got told about it, it did differ from it, think it was supposed to be less literal Chronological wise, though the only major change I remember is that the time Desmond went back to after turning the key was placed between the 90s events rather than inbetween the key turn and sky turning purple in this edit.

The x265 version is now finished…just in time for Christmas.

Here’s the size difference between the original x264 and x265 versions:

The x265 release has been encoded at 5000kbps and audio is AAC 5.1 320kbps (compared to the 15000kbps and AC3 5.1 640kbps of the x264 release)

Looking at that and how the quality is near identical between both, also how the subtitles in the x264 containers aren’t the updated ones that have been added into the x265 one, I’m considering whether to keep the x264 version up and make just the x265 version available, no idea if there’d be anyone who would care that much to have the bigger release.

I’m gonna reply to all the past PMs with the updated link but feel free to PM me if you haven’t previously.

I’ve never had much luck when trying to use an encoding value, not wanting something either too small or too big, so I don’t mind targeting a bitrate. I’ll try 10-bit using same settings and see how it turns out. Also trying a slower encoder preset which from what I see will make it about 16-17 hours total for one of the 1 hour episodes, but doing a clip first to make sure.

Doing some tests to see if I can do an x265 encode that’s roughly 1/3 the size, never done any x265 releases before so this’ll be new to me. There’s a slight quality loss from what I’m seeing but this’ll be more a space-friendly version while the current one is Blu-ray compliant. Also gives me a chance to mux in the updated subtitles with it.

Done a couple clips via Handbrake using H265 12-bit mode, not sure if being 12-bit has lower compatibility or more memory intensive to play but here’s how they look:
