The Expanse: Leviathan Wakes (Preview Version Avaliable)
Time

So, the edit is basically done, just need a technical watch (to make sure the editing is clean (or as clean as possible)) and there isn’t an errors. I’ll do a more formalised announcement of what’s next for me and this project once it’s out.

So, until it’s released I’ll try to have one or two clips uploaded of the final version each week… (Hopefully it’ll make me less lazy 😛)

First up, Donnager Part 1.
This is E03 when the rocci gang get’s captured by Mars. (sorry for the split second of Miller)

When I first did my edit it was only the second time I had attempted such a thing. For ages I wanted to at least go back to my original files spread across 20 DVDs and at least do a remaster. But I recently imported those files to my PC and I’m not happy with the quality. So I’m doing a reconstruction from better source materials. This will included fixing some glitches and making some changes to my edit.

Stay tuned.

Looking forward to this, are these from BD or DVD sources?

Bluray for the regular footage. But most of the deleted footage is SD quality. I’m finding lots of little glitches from the initial edit that I’m fixing now as well.

Would Topaz Gigapixel AI be of use in dealing with the SD deleted scenes?

Never heard of it actually

I’d be happy to help you upscale some stuff, I’ve been messing around with upscaling DS9 and come up with some pretty good techniques to get the most out of Topaz Video Enhance AI. Just chuck me a PM if you’re interested

Do you have your own copy of Topaz? I downloaded it and it was too much for my PC. So I ended up paying Topaz themselves and uploaded a bunch of the cut scenes and I honestly didn’t see that much of a difference in the quality.

Just have a the free trial (and may have had a few times already), but there is advantages of doing it yourself cos you can choose what model is used to upscale or even being able to combine multiple models after the fact to get the most accurate upscale. I’ve done a bit or messing around with that actually and it provides some really promising results

BTW sorry for the late msg, wasn’t following this thread for some reason 😛

The Expanse: Leviathan Wakes (Preview Version Avaliable)
Time

Just finished Pass 3. I took so long because I moved to some proper Bluray Sources and some parts I had to entirely re-edit (from memory all of S02, and E09-E10 of S01).

The total runtime is 5:18:14, which I am okay with, but I wish could be shorter. Funnily enough the S01 storyline stops about 3:15:00ish which would make for a great Season 1 movie time, but as I want to do Books I’m not willing to make a separate edit for this.

My plans from now is to watch through the edit and see what I want to change. Then I’ll make those changes and release a preview version (to get other peoples feedback). I’ll post on this board again when I’m ready for that (simply msg me in a private topic. You can do this now if you like and I’ll get back to you when I’m ready). Then finally I’ll release my (hopefully) final version.

The Expanse: Leviathan Wakes (Preview Version Avaliable)
Time

PREVIEW VERSION IS AVAILABLE (PM me)

This fanedit intends to create a movie based on the Leviathan Wakes book plot from The Expanse TV Show.

[1.1] PROJECT INFO AND EXPLANATION
The Expanse: Leviathan Wakes is the first movie in a series of The Expanse movies, that are based on the plots of the book series of the same name. The source will be from Season 1 and Season 2 (E01 - E05). The first book’s plot is set out weirdly and extends from S01E01 to S02E05 and I will try to edit as much of Caliban’s War’ plot out of this first movie.

I will be more faithful to the books than the T.V. show when possible as I believe some choices made in the show (i.e. the fighting amongst the Roci’s Crew and Amos/Holden not liking each other which suddenly dropped in S02). I’m aiming for a 5 hour run time, and will include an interval, but will always be trying to get a 3 hour cut.

Like with most other TV-to-Movie fanedits the main purpose of this fanedit is for people who weren’t caught up in the show, most likely because of it’s slow first few episodes, but also for people wanting to rewatch the show.

I also will make a ‘S02E05 Catchup’ which is a version of what I’ve done of Caliban War (Book 2) tocatch up the viewer of the events I’ve omitted in the from S01E01-S0E05 that are relevant to the story, so that viewers can start watching from S02E06

[1.2] PROJECT STATISTICS
CURRENT RUNTIME: 5:18:14 (Pass 3)
‘S02E05 Catchup’ RUNTIME: 00:38:59
FOCUS: Jim Holden, Josephus Miller, Roci Crew, Chrisjen Avasarala, supporting characters where relevant.
As of right now I have made three passes of the full movie. The first pass runtime was 6 hours & 13 mins. The second pass was a runtime of 5 hours & 34 mins. I just finished my third pass and I feel like I have the story sorted.

I’ve focused the Roci’s Crew and Miller for first ~20 mins before getting into the story. My aim was to get the Canterbury destroyed by the 30 minute mark and I’ve successfully done that. Avasarala is introduced after Holden has put out the message that ‘Mars destoryed the Cant’, going straight to Errinwright’s office with Admiral Souther. The story continues as usual, cutting out sub-plots that aren’t needed, with a massive build up at ~90mins (Donnager) then slowly building up to middle-act/middle-climax at ~240 mins (Julie is found). The last ~120 mins finishes off the story with two big climaxes (Throth Station and Eros).

[1.3] STORY
(ATM this is more ramblings of what I remember I’ve done, there is way to many to count)

  • Less/No fighting amongst the Roci’s Crew
  • Amos/Holden not liking each other is removed
  • Unnecessary subplots are removed or diminished (The S01E02 episode comes to mind, but alot more have been removed than that.)
  • Millers investigation plot is straightened out to try and make more sense
  • Havlock dies… (like he should have)
  • The Butcher of Anderson Station’s plot is kept but is diminished, but may change it to just talk about it I feel it isn’t needed
  • No weird ‘put your hands up’ when the Roci Crew go down to the Blue Lagoon’s Lobby
  • Removed subplot of Holden logging the distress call
  • Avasarala’s plot is put back into the shadows a bit. Her plot in this movie stops when she finds out the who in the government is working with Protogen. This will be re-incorporated into the starting of Caliban’s War.
  • Draper’s plot is removed and will be re-incorporated into the starting of Caliban’s War.
  • The Spy’s plot is removed and will be re-incorporated into the starting of Caliban’s War.
  • Julie’s episode is greatly reduced.
  • The two sub-stories about Diago are removed, may make a short about them.
  • The interrogation of Cortázar is removed and will be re-incorporated into the starting of Caliban’s War.
  • The interrogation on the Donnager is mostly removed.
  • Most parts where Holden is not with the Roci Crew are removed, only leaving what is necessary.
  • Soooooooo… much more…
