    Haha, no problem. FYI, since it's Saturday NZ time, we're only about 14 hours away from the premiere. I'm going to get a little more practice with my editing software in so that I can get this uploaded as quick as possible. It shouldn't be hard, but I have stuff to edit for YouTube, anyway, so it's good practice. I'll also look into chapter markings.

    You guys are too kind.

    Yes, it'll be up tomorrow. And correction (because I can't do mathematics), it premieres 16 hours (and 19 minutes) from now.

    I'm teaching myself chapter markings now. Looks easy.

    I wish I could tell you what the episode names are, but all they have are episode descriptions, unfortunately.

    Hmm, haven't managed to get chapter markings working yet. I added them fine but they don't seem to export. Exporting as mov seems to cause sync problems and audio glitches, but since I'll be using mp4, anyway, it shouldn't matter (I did two tests so far with Teen Titans Go, and the mp4 version works fine, as far as I can tell).

    I think my computer is lacking a little bit in power these days, so it may take a bit longer than I'd like, but I'm going to keep trying so that I can hopefully get chapter markings working, alongside optimal quality and formatting. It also doesn't seem to handle x264 very well, although I think that's just mplayer.

    EDIT: Fixed chapters. Trying m4v vs mp4 to see which is better. The former is smaller but the latter is probably better. Might try re-encoding it through something like Handbrake to see if I can shrink the mp4 from ~1.7GB for ~10min without losing noticeable quality.

    Derp, m4v and mp4 are interchangeable. The quality is still pretty good in m4v and chapters work fine, so I think I'll go with that and just change the extension to mp4. I'll test it with Windows to make sure it's fine on there, too, before I upload it tomorrow, but else, it should all be fine.

    The download will still be in excess of 1GB, though, I assume (10min 30sec is ~800MB), but if I compress it any more with 1080i, I might start to loose quality. I'll check in the morning to see if I can get it in 720p instead, though. I might be able to force the decoder to output progressively (it doesn't support 1080p, for some dumb reason). If not, it'll be 1080i @ 25fps. EDIT: I might just use the average deinterlacing that FCP offers if I can't force 720p (which I probably can't). I'm trying one of Apple's 10-bit codecs to try to reduce the file size, but I doubt it'll make a difference (EDIT 2: it doesn't), so just assume the worst for file size. I should get Compressor for next week. Not that I have $60 lying around.

    TCJJ, thank you so much for doing this! I'm Australian, but I cannot watch RID because I don't have Foxtel. So many times I should thank you for being able to do this for us.

    Will you by any chance upload this for torrent? I don't like watching youtube episodes for personal reasons. Having the episode on the computer makes it easier rather than waste my internet every time I wanna watch an episode.

    Thanks in a million again!

    It's fine. Don't worry about it. Yeah, I'll be torrenting this. Probably the only way I'm going to upload it, to be honest, then if people want to upload it on DDL sites or YouTube, they can do so.
    I just hope that bastard on YouTube doesn't get ahold of it. The one that called himself "Fan of Transformers", "FanTransformers" and fifty other things, whilst advertising his pirated DVDs, watermarking content that isn't his and is copyrighted, and even blocking me when I just asked nicely what DVD authoring software he used.

    People praise that dude like he's some kind of God just because he uploads Transformers on YouTube, but he is a dick. Don't get me wrong - I appreciate the praise you guys are giving me (hopefully it's not in vain) but the way people acted with that guy who was blatantly selling illegal goods out in the open was and is disgusting.
    That, and I just hate people putting watermarks all over things. It's one thing when a TV company does it (yeah, um, God only knows what's going to pop up during RID in the morning. CN sucks), but when someone who doesn't even own the rights to something does it to claim it as their own is stupid. All because people were "stealing" his encodes. Boohoo. Credit where credit is due and nothing more, in my opinion.

    Hahahaha I remember FanTransformers, it always struck me as funny that somebody would watermark content they didn't make much less owned.

    Anyway that is all great news about the image quality! About the file size, if you want to trim it you could try to cut off the credits roll at the end. I don't think anyone would mind.

    FanTransformers? Yup, definitely heard of him. I was naive to believe his dickery until I saw the way how he treated people. Ugh, I was so young and idiotic back then.

    I'm definitely going to give you as much support as I can and hope that all is not in vain. If this proves to be a success, I hope that it will be something to look forward to every week should personal issues not come up.

    Putting them on Youtube wouldn't be of use, Hasbro is taking down super fast the Chinese episodes, in english they are sure to get them down faster. Torrent is probably the best way to do this,

    Let's hope they stay on longer. I got episodes 3, 9, and 13 yesterday in Chinese after downloading them from youtube. 1 and 4 appear to have already been taken down as of yesterday around noon.

    Let's just remember to contribute too and help TCJJ guys, when the torrent is up don't just download it and close it, let's download the episodes and leave the clients up to seed it for other fans.

    Sitting here with everything ready. Nine minutes to go. Found a force 720p option, surprisingly, so yay for no interleaved crap. Sky doesn't offer 1080p because I don't know. It's amusing because it says HDCP failed in the settings, but the only thing it blocks is audio (which, as I previously mentioned, I'm using analogue output to get around).

    No Google Drive or YouTube, only because I don't want to risk my YouTube/Google account which I've spent years working on. Granted, it hasn't been much of anything for a while, but it still beats having the account closed.
