What is the .srr extension used for when coupled with an .avi file?

I've just noticed them more recently; does anyone know what the .srr extension is used for? I always find them with .avi files (encoded as DivX or Xvid). I tried searching the usual extension sites but couldn't find a definition that looks valid for this context... Perhaps I didn't look hard enough.

"These are related to ""Scene releases"". SRR files are created by ReScene.


What is this .srr file?

The .srr file is the format used by ReScene. It contains backups of all parts of the RAR files that are not the actual archived data. It can also store any other miscellaneous release files (e.g. SFV, NFO, etc). It is also an extensible format that will allow for other uses in the future."

"You can pack your movie file to exact format of source XViD/x264 (warez) scene release. SRR stands for Scene Release Reconstruction
For example you have a different size video files with 2 hrs 10 mins total Length in folder named


After your process it with ReScene/pyReScene and compatible SRR
you will have exact (passing SFV CRC check) scene release files as they were 27-02-2019 pred by kNiSO scene release group, i.e. 20 splitted RAR parts named:

aawkcv.r17 15,000,000
