[proposal] Robocop (1987) - 1.66:1
#1
Question 
What's about this? Do you like the idea? Is there any PAL 1.66:1 DVD that could be used? I thought to use the PaNup technique, but I need both NTSC and PAL for that...
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

IIRC the Criterion Collection DVD is 1.66:1. From what I remember the transfer is pretty gritty and dark, but I haven't seen it in ages.

Yes, it seems that the Criterion laserdisc could be even better than the NTSC DVD... if I'd use this, both CAV and CLV versions could be used to improve a bit the video quality.

Made some tests a year ago; today I refined it a bit, and, although the test capture isn't perfect, I think the final result is not that bad...

Impressive. The process seems to have enhanced what almost looks like dot crawl in the hand motion in the first comparison shot. The face in the third looks a bit like plastic with some over-sharpening as well.

Is there a name for the strange vertical noise in the before shots? I don't recall seeing anything like that before, but maybe it is less noticeable when in motion.
