I only ask because I am currently cutting my own versions of Fellowship of the RIng and Two Towers, using the theatrical and extended DVDs as source material. Not for profit or to impress anyone, but purely for my own curiosity. I always had problems with the theatrical versions, but there are also some scenes in the extended cuts that bothered me. So I made a hybrid. So far I've only tackled Two Towers, and it turned out pretty well. I could post the details of what I put in and left out, plus the technical info, if anyone is interested. Any and all thoughts would be appreciated, but as I said this was purely for my own interest. Now I have three different cuts to choose from, in a manner of speaking. Has anyone here ever tackled anything like this before? How did you do it, and what were your reasons?
