DCPrips: any interest?

4 Replies, 314 Views

A kind member can provide some DCPs to use as source for new projects; these are all recent titles; some had theatrical release, others only web; they are all 2K.

In some cases, there are corresponding UHD versions that are better, so frankly I don't see much point in those; but there are others where UHD are simply upscaled version, with DCP that may be in some cases better when upscaled; and, when only HD versions exist, usually DCP is better.

I wonder, is there any interest? What I was thinking was to release them encoded in AV1, to get the best version with the (relative) lowest bitrate.
What about resolution? Would you like to get true 2K, hence 2048x858 or 1998x1080, or downscaled to HD?
8 bit or 10 bit? SDR or HDR? I'm aware that DCPs are SDR, but upscaled version could benefit, if not of true HDR, at least of wide color gamut.

Before you ask: quite obviously I'm not allowed to share untouched DCPs.

Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

I'd be interested in the audio tracks if they are indeed legit.
i would be down for this. specially to see how the quality compares to Blu rays.
Sure. Interesting to see some list of movies. And my opinion about quality - during the source format (Open Matte, Full Screen or Widescreen) make decision by 1 movie - 1 thread, with vote options to choose.
Without reference to disk sizes and have ultimate quality, without source
An update is needed:

1) almost all these DCP were simply conversion sourced from BD/UHD-BD or WEB, hence with lower quality than the original ones
2) the only one that I'm pretty sure were NOT conversions (as I did not find any info about commercial releases) were two documentaries
3) there are a couple of non-top tier animated features that look better than BD (and so useful only IF no UHD version is available)

From 2) I already released Holy Archipelago; the other one is "Rukami" (Hands) but I don't know if/when I'll release it.
From 3) I remember Tadeo Jones III and IIRC Monster Family (which has no blown whites as BD)
