Hey there Gang!!

I uploaded all of these to the squeedily spooch (the organ site - with closed membership)

JJPotter - the work of the gods!

Are these older ones, or newer ones?

v1.5 Edits

That doesn’t answer my question. I have no idea what the current release is… hence my question.

So basically, I’m in a no-win situation. I’ve had people gripe and complain since I first released my edits about how big they are. I find a solution and now I have gripes about how everyone won’t be able to view them. At what point do I get to decide how I want to release them and not piss someone off?

JJPotter…

Here’s what I got to say about things. F’ck everyone and what they say. You do you, as you see fit. Period. You are the one who is putting in the effort and not a single person has any right or privilege to either complain or make “heavy handed” suggestions about how you present the results to the world. In fact, anyone who does doesn’t deserve to get the links that you provide. They complain about larger file size? Screw them. They should get faster Internet. What if they can’t get faster Internet. Not your problem as they are getting a vastly superior product for free that they spent absolutely no effort in creating. They want another encode? Screw them. They can use handbrake to re-encode to another format and adjust whatever compression/file size parameters they see fit. They are benefiting from your efforts and have no right to say anything about it whatsoever.

I have enjoyed your efforts before you took a break and appreciate the results immensely. I am definitely looking forward to your updates, but that does not give me the right to tell you how to present your work. Nor does it give anyone else the right either.

Thank you for your efforts. It is not fair for others to complain or make you feel pressured for doing what you enjoy and for allowing others to see the fruits of your labor. Please ignore anyone who complains and add them to a “NOT TO GIVE LINKS TO” list and move on.

I rendered it in 720 less than 4GB and am happy with the results. I really don’t have the ability to seed this thing. I was hoping to find someone who I could mail it to who could seed it out there somewhere.

What about 1080p?

It would still have to fit on a DVDR. So at 1080 the bit rate would have to be much lower to fit. And considering that 30 min of footage is extras and not in HD there comes a point what is the plus of 1080 when there will be constant quality changes anyway?

I consider having the best possible resolution that matches the source for the material to be a plus.

Friends: The Complete Edition - Blended Uncut and Blu Ray together. (Released)

I started watching these yesterday, and I think you’ve done a great job in terms of audio here, the transitions are seamless. However, I found the constant switch between 16:9 and 4:3 a bit jarring. Have you considered cutting the BR footage to 4:3 so the switch between BR and DVD footage is less noticeable?

I wouldn’t want that. Besides, from my understanding, the 16:9 are cropped 4:3 anyways, so it still would be rather noticeable

I would love to see these as they are available. I’ve ALWAYS wanted the HD of friends, but also wanted the uncut versions from the DVD’s as the cut material usually removes material for either new jokes or is able to show the reason why something was said/done later. I never did buy the excuse from WB that they just didn’t have the material in HD, that it was just “lost”. I hope that you are able to complete this project. If you need any help, I’ll be glad to do what I can.

Kerr's 'Lord Of The Rings' Fan Edits, Extended Editions by Hal9000/Sharkey (Released)
Time

OK…I’ve read through this thread, and can’t make sense of where this falls within what’s been released. There are the Theatrical versions and the official Extended versions. Where does this lie or how can it best be described? I see above that it’s considered theatrical but customized extended. Can you expand on that please?

I’ve got 2 updated PoA scenes for everyone today. #1 is the updated Knight Bus scene. This was done to more closely match the original bus scenes better. #2 is the updated After Hogsmeade scene. I’ve added music background music, adjusted coloring, tweaked Harry’s face turning red, made one addition there, and removed the duplicated dialogue from the moving staircase scene that follows.

Does that mean that there is an updated PoA available? and if so, will it be in the same links previous sent?

Also, thank you so much for your efforts. They really are making these films so much more enjoyable.

Hobbs & Shaw: BFF Edition v1.0 (Released)
Time

I present to you v1.0 of Hobbs & Shaw: BFF Extended Edition. I considered other names for it including Family Affair Edition or We Are Family Edition, but decided on BFF Edition. I’m happy with the name, but if someone proposes another name that I like better, I’d be very open to using it.

This movie came with many deleted, expanded, and alternate bonus scenes. This edition includes every viable piece of footage of every one of the bonus scenes with the exception of the majority of alternate scene of Dinkley talking to Hobbs & Shaw on the phone when they are driving in Samoa. The scenes were truly alternate in both dialogue and visual aspects. Between the two, I preferred the theatrical version both from the cinematic visual scene and the dialogue in the scene was better than the bonus version. Even though I used the theatrical version, I did include the last quip of footage from the alternate footage.

With all of that being said, this is version 1.0 of the edit. There are five very minor things that I want to improve. Fortunately, I feel that they don’t totally take away from enjoying this film in its current rendition:

  • In one of the bonus scenes, there is about 1/2 second shot where a stunt rope can be scene. This very small footage needs to have the rope removed/scrubbed and color coordinated with the rest of the scene.
  • One of the bonus expanded scenes actually starts about 1 second after the theatrical version. The audio from the theatrical before the start of the bonus scene actually enhances the dialogue on screen. However, that one second of video footage needs to be color corrected with the rest of the scene.
  • Although my mantra was to use as much of the bonus material as reasonably possible, I do realize that less is more at times. I’m having second thoughts about the last bit of footage from the alternate Dinkley phone conversation footage. While I like the dialogue and what it represents to the character, since it is an alternate background, the background change might be too jarring within the context of the film as there really isn’t something that readily suggests a transition from one point to another (even though the change of sceneries happens naturally anyways)
  • There is an additional mid-credits scene. I found the place that it should go. However, the transition from scrolling credits to scene and back to scrolling credits is a little abrupt for my taste. I’d like to improve that. It wouldn’t hurt if it was color matched to a previous mid-credit scene that takes place in the same location.
  • I found a very very minor flaw between scene transitions at the end of the film from the theatrical footage to the bonus scene. The audio change is a little abrupt. You will hear that in the current rendition. I have already fixed that for a future revision.

With that in mind, if you’d like to see my current rendition, I’ll be glad to show you. Being a novice and learning the skills needed to complete what I need to above will take time, so it’s not like my v1.1 or v1.2 will be out next week, but I do intend on fully remedying what I see are the five small points above. Of course, if anyone else can point things out that need improving, I’m definitely open to suggestions.

RUN TIMES:

Theatrical Edition: 2:15:56
BFF Extended Edition: 2:32:45

Hope you enjoy it.
