Hey gang! With the future of Twitter being somewhat unclear, we're trying our luck on Mastodon. Our handle is:
We created our account on the masto.ai server, but you can create yours on just about any server you want, and still be able to see/interact with us, as long as your chosen server is public. You can follow that link to create an account (or find another server here).
If/when you do join, let us know in the comments (or through a DM) and we'll give you a follow. If you're here from Twitter, same rules apply. This could quite possibly go nowhere, but the greatest chance of success is us sticking together.
For more info on how Mastodon works (we're still figuring it out too), you can check out this video:
For clarity, this website isn't going anywhere, and barring the unforeseen we'll still be on Twitter. Will probably try cross-posting on Twitter and Mastodon. Just figured we'd try something new :)
I'm not sure what you mean. They can't be turned off in Premiere, since it's baked into the video. They must be disabled in-game. For KH3 you turn off subtitles in the menu. For a lot of KH games there's no option, so they need a mod to remove them.
Subtitles are off in our newer videos, but not in many older ones.
I use Adobe Premiere Pro. PS4 versions unfortunately don't have those options (though KH3 does have a subtitle toggle). The options are only on PC, and even then require a bit of modding to turn it off completely.
Hey everyone, today we're releasing the first batch of Kingdom Hearts III cutscenes in 4K / 60FPS, at Max PC Settings.
You'll definitely need a beefy hard drive to fit these, as this set alone is nearly 40 GB, and KH3 as a whole will probably be around 130 GB once it's done! As you can imagine though, the quality is stunning; it looks nearly identical to playing the game in real-time on a high-end PC. I understand this isn't feasible for everyone, so we'll be uploading them to a YouTube Playlist as well. The quality won't be quite as good, but for those who want the next-best thing, it's there.
Going with our recent trend, these scenes have 2 audio tracks, one with background music and one without. And thanks to the USMToolkit made by Rikux3, even most pre-rendered scenes can have their music turned off. Those pre-rendered scenes have a few caveats on the music-less tracks: it uses mono audio, so no panning effects, and a lot of sound effects are missing due to how the 5.1 surround was divided up. But dialog is all good: think of it as a cool bonus ;)
This set goes from the start of the game to Kingdom of Corona. I'm doing it in parts because of how much space the raw capture files take up. If I did everything in one go it would fill up my hard drive haha, so I'm moving them to an external drive every now and then. Plus I figured it's better to give people access as soon as possible, what with how long this takes. Hopefully the next part will come out a bit faster.

This time it's Kingdom Hearts 0.2 in 4K! This is the first game in the series that was made with HD/4K in mind, so you'll really notice the difference here: all that fine texture detail looks beautiful. And as a first for us, all real-time cutscenes run at 60 frames per second. Unfortunately this game has a considerable number of pre-rendered scenes so this only applies to about half of them. But it's very exciting dipping our toes into the new world of 60FPS. Maybe we'll see more of that in the future...
To account for double the number of frames, I had to double the bitrate in order to preserve video quality, so just bear in mind these files are going to be on the chonky side.
You can download these gorgeous, silky-smooth cutscenes here:
Other features of these videos include:
-Opening movie upscaled to 4K (using Topaz A.I. Gigapixel V3.1.1)
-Credit text from Opening movie removed. Possble thanks to the textless version of the OP that Square Enix uploaded to YouTube. (Can also download the version with text)
-Dual audio tracks: one standard, and one without background music
