| PROJECTS: Released | In progress | Future | Mission & Setup |

to release Supernova in High Definition Blu-ray format.
Video sources: 2x HDTV
Audio sources: DVD

Subtitles sources: DVD

Project info:
Even if "Supernova" could not be considered a masterpiece, I like it, as many of us... no Blu-ray is ever released, so it's time to make a proper high-definition version.
There are two HDTV broadcasts around, one scandinavian and the other russian; both are 1920x1080 2.35:1 25fps; they have different color grading but, apart that and according to preliminary tests, they match 100%; if it proves true, I'll overlay them to average compression artifacts and obtain a better quality without using nasty noise reduction; result color is also better than both single version; video then will be slowed down to 23.976fps.
All five languages are taken from the PAL DVD; they are all Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks; they are converted from 25fps to 23.976fps; if I'll be able to find out the English Cinema DTS track, it will be included as main track.
Subtitles for all five languages are from PAL DVD.

Sure would be interesting to see some alt scenes or an Alt Cut one day.
I guess Walter Hill suggests that the reshoots and re-edits were vastly different from what he intended.

The DVD included like 20 minutes or more of deleted scenes.

BD too... in SD, of course!

Rechecking old projects, I've been thining about Supernova, so I've made my usual homeworks and found this comparison link.

Is it me - just finding a reason to pickup an old project and redo it, just for the sake of had not wasted my time doing it - or the BD has that hated magenta blanket, albeit not so annoying? I didn't notice before, because I left the project behind in the moment BD was released.
