UAR (Ultimate Aspect Ratio) screenshot comparisons
#1
“UAR: because every single pixel counts!™”

Last edit: 2018-10-17

20,000 Thousand Leagues Under The Sea - 20000_Leagues_Under_The_Sea
WEB LB Vs UAR - usually more image on left and bottom sides; sometimes only on bottom; dealing with two very different master, dunno if it will be possible to get a viable final version using both source for all scenes; a compromise would be to use them for the vast majority of shots, while using just one for the few shots where blending doesn't work.

Alien 3 - Alien_3_BD_Vs_UAR_regraded_frame_040734
BD LB Vs UAR - incredibly, it’s possible to add some (few) parts of an image even on anamorphic films!

Alien: Resurrection - Alien_Resu...32618
BD LB Vs UAR - not only more image on top and bottom, in comparison to blu-ray, but also on both sides!!!

Arrival, The (1996) - The_Arriva...s_UAR
DVD FS Vs UAR - this is mostly a fullscreen version with added “slices” on both sides; if there is some interest, I’m ready to turn it in an hybrid fullscreen version instead.

Creep (2004) Daredevil TC - Daredevil_BD_vs_UAR
BD LB Vs UAR regraded - gains a bit on top and bottom, and sometimes on one side too! (thanks to zoidberg for the Theatrical Cut project!)

Dark Tower, The - The_Dark_T...print
BD LB Vs UAR moviefingerprint - open matte has logo which is visible in few shots; solutions could be to wait for another open matte version without logo (or with it in another place), or use the plain BD, or crop the top of the image, or try an impaint and see if could work (it probably will in a couple of shots IMHO).

Deep Rising Earth Girls Are Easy Elektra TC - Elektra_(Theatrical_Cut)_BD_Vs_UAR_frame_083322
BD LB Vs UAR - here the image gained on one side is more consistent, and happens quite often! Final version will be regraded

Event Horizon - Event_Horizon_BD_vs_UAR
BD LB (squeezed) Vs UAR regraded (corrected AR) - usually a bit more image on left and bottom sides; few times, on space shots, as in this one, UAR has a lot more image than BD!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Harry_Pott...58267
BD LB Vs UAR triple source

Jurassic Park - Jurassic_Park_HDTV_vs_FC
HDTV LB Vs UAR regraded - no color reference used, but I like these colors!

Jurassic Park III - Jurassic_P...16897
HDTV OM Vs UAR - as other UAR dual sources, this has many shots in fullscreen with “slices” added on both sides, but in many others the contrary is true, where open matte has more image on top and/or bottom.

Matrix, The Rogue one - Rogue_One_BD_vs_UAR
BD LB Vs UAR - welcome unexpected surprise!

Resident Evil - Resident_E...print
BD LB Vs UAR moviefingerprint

Resident Evil: Apocalypse - Resident_E...09313
BD OM Vs UAR - maybe it will end up using three

Resident Evil: Afterlife - Resident_E..._shot
BD LB Vs UAR regraded - only few scenes are actually really in open matte (and subsequentially in UAR); of course, the French text is not present in the final version!

Robocop (1987)
  • Robocop_1987_BD_vs_UAR_2
    unreleased Sony BD LB Vs UAR regraded - thanks to FS, there is a lot more image on both top and bottom; most of the shots (probably 95%+) are 1.33:1 with small added slices on the sides.
  • Robocop_1987_BD_vs_UAR
    remastered BD LB Vs UAR - gains a bit more image also on both sides
Silent Hill - Silent_Hil...07029
HD-DVD LB Vs UAR - final version will be regraded

Terminator 2 Terminator 3 - Terminator...print
HDTV OM Vs UAR moviefingerprint

Village, The - The_Village_HDTV_vs_FC
HDTV LB Vs UAR - also a tiny bit more image on both sides.

Waterworld Hint: watch the comparison in fullscreen.

Note: at the moment, none of these has been released!

If you can to blur the corners, it will be fine.
If the black segments remain, then I do not like.

In the opposite camp, no blurring please, find it's more distracting than black borders and thankfully I think spoRv agrees.

Abolutely no blur; purely black borders here! Happy

In some editions, I could add a YAO hack to get a fixed aspect ratio, but that's all...

Will be replaced with the open matte shot... at the end, UAR could have any aspect ratio inside it, so, apart the obvious AAP-AR, hybrid etc. also "plain" fullscreen 1.33:1, open matte 1.78:1, letterbox 2.40:1 etc.

As for Terminator 2, I checked the 1997 widescreen DVD, and it's the same transfer. But using the 1991 Fullscreen Laserdisc with the HLD-X0 may produce results comparable to the HD-DVD.

Can you please make a comparison of the 1997 widescreen DVD with this Russian fullscreen one?

because I have the Italian widescreen DVD that seemed to use the same master, but when I compared more frames, it is not the case, sadly...

About LD and HLD-X0: I'm pretty sure result would be great, still not comparable with a DVD.
