May I ask why you chose to zoom in for the effect shots instead of using the "IMAX" approach of showing the "letterboxed" 2.35:1 version for those shots?

EDIT: Or am I misunderstanding? Either way, cool project, I like this movie.

Apparently has something to do with how the effects shots were made by the filmmakers. Some shots in open-matte presentations of Back to the Future are zoomed in because of it, for example. Another reason can be to censor content that would be inappropriate for the target audience (for example, Sailor Moon's stalled transformation into Princess Serenity during the climax of the Sailor Moon R movie for the G-rated cut released on VHS in 2000 by Pioneer Entertainment and broadcast a few times on Toonami back in the day). Still another reason is to hide in-shot bloopers, as demonstrated in a nude scene in Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut for the initial DVD release. And then, there are shots that work perfectly fine either way, such as a close-up of Batman in the 1989 film directed by Tim Burton.

Ah. Well, Equilibrium is also released that way (some shots zoomed in), but my question was basically: Why not just take the full shot from the Blu Ray in 2.35:1? It's not zoomed in there, is it?

I've decided to use the open matte version "as is": I must add that the new source I used has more image on all sides than the old one, but sadly it's cropped on some shots.

The variable aspect ratio (like A:C) was possible, but quite challenging, choosing up literally hundred shots... if someone would like to step in and carefully write down start and end frame numbers for each shots which needs to be taken from BD, this will be very welcome!

Just got hold of the open matte web-dl, and will try and slowly go through the film side by side using videoredo and work out the frame points where the cropped scenes need to be replaced by the bluray,

It will be great to have a note for each shot (full open matte, or cropped); so, it would be possible to use YAO hack to mask the full open matte shots, and replace just the cropped shots with BD.
