[proposal] Apollo 13 - open matte 16:9

2 Replies, 4145 Views

If I recall correctly, there was someone interested in a restoration of the open matte 1.78:1 of "Apollo 13"; found the 720p HDTV, it's not that bad at all, even if it could be maybe improved a bit - grain plate SHOULD be added!

Comparisons:

BD vs HD-DVD

I took this image because it has those tiny figures on the wall, good for comparisons... as you can see, HD-DVD has a lot more image than BD; HDTV has almost all the sides of HD-DVD, plus of course a lot more on top and bottom; color wise, HDTV is similar to BD, but don't know which has the *right* color grading.

Now, I wonder if the Imax DVD 1.66:1 has more image on top and bottom of the 1.78:1 (probable) or it's just a cut or P&S version of the latter.

Audio: the laserdisc DTS has a different mix than HD-DVD and BD, it should be the same of DTS Cinema - that, by the way, is also available!
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

I got the Fullscreen (Open matte) DVD which includes the IMAX version on disc two

Also got the original DTS DVD as well. This film has always interested me both story wise and technically

I tried some experiments upscaling that with TVIscale/Inpainting (I can improve it now days)
