Restoration tips: Axis-Aligned Polygon Aspect Ratio™
#31
Would love to see this applied to Fellowship of the Ring. The EE and Theatrical have different framing and at very least an extra wide 2.45/2.5 AR could be reached for some scenes. Seems like a good project to test the viability of variable aspect ratios across one movie.

Can you post some examples? I'm curious to see if something could be done - take in account also the different colors, though...

I'm at work on my phone, but you can see that the image stretches further to the left of one, the right of the other. LotR definitely benefits from the wide cinematic feel.

Difficult to say how much could be gain, but there are definitely more than few lines of vertical definition to get back...

I wonder if also the other films are the same. I've just (re)noted this on Alien Resurrection - DVD and LD have more details on both sides than BD, while the latter has a bit more on top and bottom... I've tried to use the DVD to "enlarge" the frame, but they are almost surely from different scans, and it's quite difficult - if not impossible - to align both properly... Sad

With LOTR, at the contrary, *seems* easier; we'll see...

I believe Fellowship is the only one that got a new transfer. The process would be difficult though - the image focus moves, so in some shots you'll have quite a bit on the left, while other shots are extra zoomed.
