[Retired] The Dark Knight (Regrade and Imax Restoration)
(2018-02-25, 01:36 AM)spoRv Wrote: Papai, reading now on myspleen, comments you wrote in reply to your own torrent; so, are there HD clips of IMAX shots (1.44:1) of TDK and TDKR in a special edition trilogy on BD, right? If so, it would be possible to use them as main source, and upscaled DVD + BD auto.overlay'ed eventually for shots not present there; it this way, there could be possible to get the best possible quality for IMAX shots.

Because the IMAX shots at 16:9 = 1.78:1 are cropped, and the ones on BD *should be* at 1.44, hence original?!?

I'm an old dinosaur, with a small brain, but, as I'm a carnivore, not that silly! Tongue

Andrea, sorry for taking over four months to reply. Well yes, the ultimate trilogy collector's edition Blu-ray has all the major IMAX shots in 1.43:1 as special features. The single insert shots done on IMAX can only be sourced from the 4:3 DVD of TDK. There is no Full-Screen DVD of TDKR unfortunately. So, insert shots of Part 3 in full IMAX does not exist in public.

Now that I see this after all this time, could someone share the 4:3 DVD with the full IMAX shots with me? I would like to try some new uspcaling methods.

Edit: As incredible as it sounds, I just found a new HDRip of Dark Knight on the Russian place that appears to have the fullscreen IMAX scenes in HD. Sadly the bitrate is extremely low, but maybe it could be used for something or maybe the original source can be found.

So TomArrow did you get more info on the russian version that has all the IMAX scenes in full 1.44:1?

It looks like a mix of the remaster with all the full IMAX shots. I wonder if it's genuine or fanmade, and if fanmade, where do the extra IMAX shots not found on the Warner discs bonuses come from?

I think we established earlier that that was just a reencode of PDB's initial release, unless you mean a different one.

Yep. That comment is actually almost half a year old already, heh.

Post #133 is different than what you talk at the start of the thread, which is about PDB version being reencoded.

Some new version appeared on the russian site in 2019.

As PDB restoration was way older than that, I thought it might be a leak of some other source. Russians have all sorts of weird masters appearing there and there.

The only one I could find was on the tracker. That one is 100% a re-encode of my project, no doubt.

There might be another somewhere else but I could only find that one.
