The Matrix AAP-AR [EXPERIMENTAL VERSION] (two sources, old grading)

The Matrix - AXIS-ALIGNED POLYGON ASPECT RATIO™ - EXPERIMENTAL VERSION

Are you curious to watch an entire movie with more image than both the letterbox and open matte versions?
Are you ready to watch it with a "strange" aspect ratio?

Comparison between HDTV 1.78:1 and AAP-AR version:
http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/128176

This version is AFAIK the first full lenght movie release with an AAP-AR; thanks to random.next and his plugin, the alignment is perfect in almost all shots (I'd say 99.9%); it used HDTV and DVD as they have very similar (but not identical) color grading.

Problems:
  • sometime the alignment is completely wrong (first 52 frames are my fault) for a whole shot, or just for a frame or two at the beginning of a shot
  • colors in the "slices" are different sometimes, due to not identical color grading of the sources
  • there is at least a glitch which was present in the HDTV source
  • no end credits
All in all, a nice presentation; after few minutes, the empty angles would be barely noticed - until you'll notice a problem, at least! Wink

The video file has not audio, but it's in sync with the BD (until the beginning of the end credits), so you can mux a track from BD in any language; I've added the workprint track (fixed by jerryshadoe) so you can experience an even more strange version.

Have fun, and do not forget to leave some feedbacks!!!

Because this project used two sources (DVD and HDTV) with old grading, while new one uses three different sources (BD, WEB, SDTV), I thought it was wise to move comments about the latter in a new, dedicated thread - you can find it here: https://forum.fanres.com/thread-2009.html

Also, this version, being the first AAP-AR I've made, it's experimental (read: with some errors here and there), and it seems there is no interest in it - indeed, with more than 40 visits to the download link, nobody left a feedback, so I'll stop caring about it (I even deleted the lossless files), and will focus on the new one.

I have the Matrix AAPAR thingy in my jDownloader2 and I did a "check online status" and it shows online but when I go "show download URLs" it only shows the ncrypt thingy. If you can tell me how to get it to display the proper links, I can give it to ya.
It *should* open the link when you select "open in browser" - then you can copy the links... thanks in advance, Tom! Ok
