Thanks. I’ll send the subtitles soon as I can, though maybe I’ll try to test them one last time. I knew Gandalf’s incantation in the post-credit was not translated by chocie but I still wanted to be sure (also, is it always Gandalf? For some reason I thought it was Saruman at the beginning). Thing is, the subtitles file I made is like a mix between nromal and closed captions: I removed every instance of subtitles “explaining the noises” but I kept the ones about characters speaking another language, so at least viewers have some sort of context even if the dalogue is not translated. For the same reason, I also made sure to keep every intance of subtitles mentioning who is speaking off-screen. EDIT: Subtitles sent.

I finally watched the new updated version. I never thought it was possible, but you really surpassed your already perfect work. This is 100% the definitive way to see the Hobbit.

Also, ever since the 2023 update, I’ve been revisiting the italian subtitles and I made sure they match with the italian dub (aside from a few cases where there were some transaltion mistakes in the dub itself, which I rectified). If you’re interested, I could send you my .srt file, in case you want to add it as an optional download in your MEGA folder.

Speaking of which, I was actually trying (for my own fun) to make subtitles for the extra stuff but I’m a little confused with the Dol Guldur scene. Is it Gandalf or Saruman the one who’s chanting in the background at the beginning? Also, which lenguage is it, elvish?

Hi. I only recently watched GoT for the first time (crazy late, I know). Despite liking the last two seasons overall, I too was quite disappointed with the ending. Since I’ve always been fascinated by the process of video editing, I’m curious to chek out your edit for the last season. Could you send me the download link? Also, are there any subtitles avialable for your edit? If not, it’s not big deal, I ask only because english is not my legnuage but I can understand it pretty well.

Hi. About this question, I can share with you my experience: for this edit and for my private vision, i created the italian dub (@sidshady12 write me if you are interested to add to your edit). It’s long process (it depends how much time do you dedicate, probably in a month you can do it, i worked mostly at the weekends), but it isn’t so hard. What you need are: the audio tracks of the extended version of the movies and the list of changes and cut made by sidshady12 (you can find them here or on his website). What i did is extract the audio track of M4 Book edit and all extended movies and i opened them in Adobe Audition (i think it’s a great program to do this kind of things because you can work on audio adding effects or separate dialogue and backing music). Then i opened the movie on a video player and the original movie on another video player. Then i watched the two movies at the same time, so i can noticed when he made cuts. I suggest to you to maintain the M4 Book Edit’s track as basic track and replace only dialogues parts. Then is easy compiling a new movie edit file adding the track in your language (i used MKVToolnix) and forced subtitle track. The only parts not translated is the final Gandalf’s speech at Thorin’s funeral, that part i left it in english with subtitle. Ask me anything you want.

Hi. Do you still have the italian dub? I would be interested in checking it out (for private vision only of course), even if it’s not the updated version. Would you PM me in case you’re willing to share it?
