To whomever is still seeding this on the pirateb tracker, thank you! That was a surprise to see.
Has anyone updated this to work with CS5? I can't seem to get it working properly.
If I can get CS5, I'll try to update it.

Is the Miami version the latest?
Also, does the 720p version on Vimeo include 720p content, or is it just uprezed?
I'm showing this at my movie marathon in a couple weeks and realized my DVD copy had a bad VOB!
Nope. They're both based off of the the same Premiere render. The mpeg2 encoding must have introduced that.
Does the image, overall, look better to you?
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.
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 really had a lot of hopes for this last one. :(
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.
1. The original Superman II is now available in HD.
2. Almost all of my FX work was done with HD footage.
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.
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. :)
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.
Was this DVD ever uploaded to usenet?
I found a copy of the two DVDs, and will be uploading to piratebay soon.
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?
I can confirm this is the version I released. Thank you so much for finding it!
If it's a more complete version I'd like to watch it. With more complete effects that is. The video I watched had that guy have a solid color cover his stomach when Zod used his heat vision on him. So if you enhanced that further I'd like to see it.
I only released one version, so that should be it. I'm surprised your version has parts cut off at the end of both files! Where does each file end?
As for the guys stomach, its not a solid color, although my appear that way on certain displays. It is supposed to be his burned shirt. I decided not to show blood or guts until Superman gives up his powers and gets beat up in the diner.
That's really frustrating to hear. I'll try to get something up on piratebay soon.

Sorry to zombie this thread, but if the pre-release is going to be the last of this, could we get a better quality version (ie, DVD)?
Unfortunately after a few hard drive crashes, I think I've lost all my original files. I did have a DVD render that I gave out to a couple friends though... I'll ask around. PM me your address and if I get ahold of one I'll mail a copy to you!
Sorry, awful Man of Steel inspired me to post.
I haven't touched a video editor in too long. Every other week or so I considering going back and finishing the Superman edit, but life is busy here. Still, with the new Blu-ray Superman set out now, including all the scenes I couldn't get in HD when I started this edit, I'm very tempted...
Thanks for your interest. Did you watch it?
I don't have much success with Roto so far, haha. Anybody good with that that can do it rather painlessly? I'll crop/edit him out whenever possible. He really isn't very present. That would be the best end result, to remove him entirely.
How much screen time do you need him roto'd from?
resonator said:Camera movement in CGI scenes results in jerkiness (all throughout Season 1), they seem to have gotten the field order wrong.
You should be able to fix this with Womble and Virtualdub.

I wish I could remember who did this, but someone moved the duel to the Trade Federation ship. IMO it failed because it was just a cut/paste job so it was obvious the scenes didn't match.
Fall of the Republic by Blankfist. Making that move let him shorten TPM to about 20 minutes. I didn't find the change distracting when I first saw it.
I cant find this edit on Demonide
Search for Taolar and it will pop up.
Superman: Poetry while flying
Superman: Jor-El was right! Kaboom!!!
Superman: Truth, Justice... all that stuff
@ibleedspeed- Awesome! That's the exact response I aimed for. Thanks!
@RedFive- There are actually two fan edits released with that name. Besides, I'm not a fan of using titles that were already used commercially, unless the editor is trying to re-create the story that originally used that title.
I was never fully satisfied with the title Son of Jorel anyway. I just settled on it because I hadn't come up with anything better before announcing the project. This will force me to come up with something better.
Watched the Superman Son of Jor-El by L8wrtr and Jelio. Just wanted to confirm that (other than being a combination of Sup1 and 2 and focusing more on the relationship with Jor-El) this edit has virtually no similarities to my edit. The overall sensibility toward Superman as well as specific editing choices are vastly different.
Work on mine will continue after I rebuilt my editing suite. Still considering its new name. Any ideas?
