An Interview With A Titan

Hello everyone, this is an interview with Titan of the Resource Release Group. As of late, he has become profoundly linked to "quality" in the world of encoding, and respected for his releases. Today I sit down with him, and ask him his take on current events, encoding, and the future of P2P. First of all, thanks Titan for your time. I'll begin with a few routine questions, as we dig deeper into the mind of the one they call Titan.

1) In recent years in the world of the Bit Torrent Protocol, the demand for quality has increased, that being said, what codecs do you prefer in your encodes?

RE Titan:
1- H264/x264.

2) Why do you prefer using the (above answered) codecs over the simpler single cd xvid releases?

RE Titan:
2- Well there are several reasons... The 264 codec is the codec used for BluRays. (Since most of mine are BR's I know it will look good) and the 264 codec has GREAT compression.

3) During YOUR time encoding, what is one of the many things that you have improved on?

RE Titan:
3- Quality and Patience.

4) Is there anything you would like to improve upon, now that you are becoming well known and famous for your quality?

RE Titan:
4- Well alot of people don't know that this December will be 4 yrs I've been encoding for me (Different Name before). But I want to get better at syncing audio and video together.

5) Where do you think we are heading, in the near future, meaning, do you think the Bit Torrent Protocol will continue to gain popularity?

RE Titan:
5- The sky is the limit. I think that BitTorrent will never die.

6) What is your take, on the current attack on peer-to-peer communication, and the forcing of certain sites to either sell, impose copyright filters, or simply vanish in the face of lawsuits?

RE Titan:
6- Well it makes me sick. These people think that we are taking or stealing from their pockets but they don't realize is that over 80% of the people that download torrents either still go see it at the Theater or buy the DVD or BR when it comes out.

7) How is it, that you first got your start in the world of encoding?

RE Titan:
7- I like everyone started leeching... Then I wanted to know how people did it so I started learning. I wanted to give back like people gave to me.

8) In spite of the legal matters going on in our world today, what drives you to continue to bring out the quality releases that your fan base expects?

RE Titan:
8- Even after almost 4 yrs of encoding I still get a rush from encoding and releasing. Its like a kid with a new toy everytime!

9) What makes you stick with the crew at the Resource Release Group?

RE Titan:
9- I'm HUGE on Loyalty. These guys have done alot for me. I have known the Owner for a few years and I know a good friend when I see one. Everyone is respectful and we ALL learn from each other.

10) There are many today from within p2p groups, that are simply slaughtering the "scene" with quality and quickness. Do you still believe the "scene" is essential to the torrent world?

RE Titan:
10- The scene is VERY huge to encoders and Releasers. Without them we wouldn't have 75% of everything on the net. I have much respect for those guys. Now to the other part of that question... Don't be fooled by some of these guys... Their are some Great encoders that do rival the "scene" guys but most of the others are just imitators... They get something from the scene then change the file names. Don't get confused between the "Real Deal" and a bunch of wannabe's.

11) That being said, why do you continue to stick to p2p (public) releasing?

RE Titan:
11- Well.. I have recently started adding a few of my things to Private trackers. Public trackers is the reason I'm the encoder I am today.

12) Do you ever plan to go to private trackers only, or delve further, and become one with the "scene" and their competitions?

RE Titan:
12- Hmmm... well I don't know about private trackers all the time. Part of the scene? well that would be cool on some stand points. It would be like a bear in a honey jar. Lol. I would LOVE to get my hands on some stuff they do.

13) Every day we see more and more sharing in the world of p2p releases, from those whom do re-encodes, and those whom encode from scene dvd-r's, or even their own retail sources. What advice would you give to someone whom has just appeared into the "game", and are still struggling to beat the rest to release?

RE Titan:
13- Well that's one of the things I've learned in the last few years... First doesn't always mean better. I have released stuff several hours after the "First One" and still have better results and Downloads... Its about Quality and Passion.

14) As we all know, modern technology is allowing more and more to view and purchase high definition media players, do you try to appeal to this new base of peers, by sticking to the HD releases? If so, Why?

RE Titan:
14- No not really. All MY releases are PC, Ps3, and Xbox Compatible. They also can be burned to disc just like an Xvid. I just feel that using a BR as a source will give my downloaders a better all around experience.

15) It seems most within the scene, use one click apps and simplified programs to encode their releases. What methods do you prefer while encoding?

RE Titan:
15- I prefer the "more difficult" way... I want to be able to control EVERY detail about the end result as possible.

16) Most releasers use single and double pass encoding, and it seems at times you use three or more, do you believe, that customized scripts result in better quality encodes of a finished product, and if so, why?

RE Titan:
16- Yes customized scripts DO make better encodes. I don't care who you are a pre-determined outcome no matter what program you use will not better a custom encode any day. I have only played with the 3 pass. Some people feel strongly about it and some don't. I haven't made up my mind yet.

17) The majority of those involved in peer to peer index sites, have little to no knowledge at all about the difference in releases, and the various codecs and qualities of each. What is one piece of advice, that you would give to those who are ill-informed in the world of torrents?

RE Titan:
17- Just because it says BluRay doesn't mean you have to have a BluRay player. Don't be lazy and read the description. If the description is crap then more than likely the encode will be to. You can tell when you see People who care and have passion for what they do by how they try to make everything perfect for the downloader.

18) If you had any doubts about the popularity of your releases, I'm sure they have been quelled in recent months, as your name is reputable globally. In fact, is there anything you still fear while releasing?

RE Titan:
18- That someone would be unhappy with one of my releases. I understand they may not be perfect but I try my best to make them as close as possible.

19) Patience is in fact a virtue, and I know you take the time to make sure you bring only top notch and high quality releases. Is that something you've always had, the patience, or does it build over time?

RE Titan:
19- It build's. I used to have the "I have to be first" attitude for the longest time.

20) Last, I want to know, what can we expect to see out of the infamous Titan in the next few months, and where do you think the torrent world will lead you?

RE Titan:
20- More Quality films I hope... lmao... I would love to get better at syncing audio and offering more True R5's instead of relying on the "scene" all the time to do the grunt work for me.

Thanks for all your time Titan. Here on Extra Torrent we greatly appreciate all your releases, and many from around the globe, also share that appreciation. As a note to all whom are reading this, Titan represents Resource Release Group, and if anyone would like to support them in their ventures, you can follow their releases here, and everywhere in the world of peer-to-peer. Again Titan, your time is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to seeing your future releases. Best of wishes to you and all of the Resource Release Group.

RE Titan:
On a side note I would like to say Thanks to ET for the friendly site and reception you have given me and to anyone that has followed my work for the last few years.

That concludes my interview with the one they call Titan, and we hope to continue to see more from him and others pursuing the same quality and goals as him as they bring their releases here to Extra Torrent and the torrent world as a whole. Again, many thanks to Titan for him giving up a few moments of his time to sit down with us here at ET, and let us "pick his brain" for a few questions. If you'd like to see more of Titan's releases here on ET, you can do so by viewing his profile, http://extratorrent.com/profile/Titan/, and supporting him and the Resource Release Group in their many ventures in the global world of encoding.
