    about why not seamless branching on LOTR:

    seamless branching just won't work on this case, if you're familiar with both editions you'll notice that not only the EEs have additional and extended scenes but also on many of the common scenes different takes, angles and line readings are used, so about half of the footage is unique for the EEs and the blu ray disc would need to hold around 5 hours of 1080p picture for seamless branching

    a good example to see this is the scene on The Two Towers where Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas encounter the Rohan exiled riders while searching for Merry and Pippin, the scene lasts the same on both editions and the same lines are featured and yet it looks complete different on each version, the EE has mostly long shots where you can see the horses around them and the TE has close shots of the actors, also Viggo's line readings are completely different on each version, faster and more nervous on the EE, calmer and with more authority on the TE
