Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West Gets 4K Ultra HD Release Date
avatar
Was a good source as well.
avatar
avatar
@DoomBot yes. It upscaled an SDR 1080p image into 4k HDR in realtime and also captured it on that same card w/out dropping frames
avatar
@Bilbofett is the source blu-ray?
avatar
here's my auto SDR>HDR+1080>4k upscale test. My Nvidia screengrabbed this Superresolution upscale+HDR conversion on the fly from the card's output in realtime. This is pretty damn good https://gofile.io/d/3X2Xdb
avatar
welcome @fanislive!
avatar
hello all, just found out about this forum, what a wonderful collection of projects!
avatar
^^Hack for Nvidia super-res (upscale) and realtime SDR>HDR conversion in Media Player Classic!-> https://github.com/emoose/VideoRenderer/releases
avatar
Sad
avatar
avatar
works in Chrome, Edge and special port of updated VLC 3.0 "Vetinari"
avatar
Interesting. Only works in chrome though so not sure how useful it would even be. I'm more interested in them adding an AV1 encoder finally

"Today also sees the release of RTX Video HDR for all GeForce RTX GPUs, laptops and desktops. This new feature automatically converts SDR video into more vibrant HDR video that can be watched on any HDR10-compatible display" https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/new...dy-driver/

Usually CPC London post something online whenever they strike digital 35mm prints for new releases but they haven't mentioned Poor Things, so this may well be a legitimate 35mm print run (ie printed from an interneg)
avatar
Pretty cool
avatar
Saw POOR THINGS in 35mm last week and it was absolutely lovely!
avatar
and the B&W scenes in Dune p2 might in fact be infrared: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lDYXrR08IE&t

Looks like Poor Things got a 35mm release: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVHAd0dmTKo

In fact it will enhance them.
avatar
Exactly.
avatar
more compression or less compression will not change the AI look of alien eyes and wrinkles that should not be there
avatar
It's going to be the same thing with better encoding. Ergo, Cameron's special sauce will look even spiffier.
avatar
Why would it be any different?
avatar
Let's hope the final blu ray doesn't end up like this
avatar
fwiw the MA (Movies Anywhere) stream is a lot better compression-wise (and thus noise preservation)... won't help the master issues of course but a slightly more fair comparison
avatar
and theres AI upscaling
avatar
New True Lies master a bit of a mixed bag. Some shots have better color and detail than the DVHS, most look DNR'ed to hell with the bright teal look
avatar
avatar
avatar
^^there's a standard edt for $30 less also

avatar
That's funny because he got time to multiple projects like documentaries and other stuff, but remastering his films for the last 20 years took a backseat.
avatar
who's seeing ABYSS 4k tonight w/me? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cCVYAcIIAo
avatar
you have to remember a week in Jim Cameron time is like 5 human years
avatar
"Streaming started to blur the lines and say, 'Well, what is a movie? Is Birdbox a movie? It looks like a movie, and it quacks like a movie. It's got Sandra Bullock in it, but it was never seen in a theater." lol
avatar
James Cameron on why his movies haven't been remastered earlier: "I think what people don't appreciate is that it is basically a week of my time to do a proper transfer" yeah, James, that's it, lol.
avatar
I love James Cameron's films but man his arrogance knows no bounds.
avatar
avatar
avatar
People are so used to Netflix and other digital look, they don't know film anymore or how it does look like for real, even on the O-neg.
avatar
Now, when people get 4K remaster, and realise half the shot in the film are out of focus, or have blurry problems, they go apes--t.
avatar
That's because 35mm use to iron out image problems like lack of focus etc.
avatar
https://twitter.com/hdmoviesource/status...6453632280 So is this what we've come to? We kept asking for more resolution, more sharpness, more clarity; finally on UHD we're getting it, and now he thinks its too much and prefers the softness and bluriness of older media? JFC
avatar
@The Aluminum Falcon I would kill for a nice 4k HDR of Magnolia. I knew Boogie Nights was a foregone conclusion since PTA has been screening a new 70mm print of it
avatar
The Criterion Grading of Mean streets is SO RIP!
avatar
Hard Eight could use a 4K as well
avatar
Ooh I love Boogie Nights
avatar
BOOGIE NIGHTS strongly rumored to be coming to 4k next year.
avatar
For True Lies? I don't think revisionism would be the issue here, I don't recall seeing any on the streaming version. Color correction would definitely be in order though
avatar
None that I recall off the top of my head.
avatar
Were there any fixes in the HDTV/streaming version
avatar
You mean like in T2? I don't like these changes. I like these goofs and little "errors"
avatar
I’m more concerned about how many ”fixes” there will be.
avatar
Love that reply PDB. Smile
avatar
It can be fixed. It can all be fixed.
avatar
Get ready to do some audio comparison Wink
avatar
WTF
avatar
Audio: Dolby Atmos and DTS-HD MA 2.0 for the 4K BD and DTS-HD MA 5.1
avatar
True Lies is coming on 4K BD on March 12th, 2024
avatar
Hope I'm wrong but I'm expecting some teal!
avatar
Bout damn time!
avatar
avatar
Hopefully with a new, proper master
avatar
HO BOY! CAMERONMAS! And look, they put my picture on the box! https://thedigitalbits.com/columns/my-tw...11523-0659
avatar
You should write a guide Bibofett
avatar
well, how about that, I learned a secret trick/hack/loophole for HDR conversion.. DM if you'd like it Wink
avatar
@alleycat the pacing and scene order is the same as the D.C. from 2017
avatar
That's what I said to myself when T2 in 4K was announced. What a let down it was when I saw the movie on 4KBD
avatar
Never ever judge a video transfer by YouTube. They have some of the worst compression around. I thought it looked eerily similar to the HDTV version I saw on HBO some years ago.
avatar
That HDTV had wonderful grain on it so I'm not expecting the worse...yet
avatar
It's clearly the same transfer as the HDTV that has been floating around for years
avatar
LOL I was just coming here to post that Abyss trailer
avatar
But knowing Cameron's distaste for film grain, this and probably True Lies, will be another DRN mess
avatar
T2 in 4K is just garbage. I've low hopes we get a real proper release.
avatar
I remember people complaining about DNR on the titanic trailer on youtube then saying the DCP looked a lot better. I didn't get the chance to see it myself though
avatar
Is the footage in the trailer scrubbed like hell? DNR mess or just Youtube encoding?
avatar
The Abyss coming back to theaters >> Trailer >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cCVYAcIIAo
avatar
Is it significantly different? Do they still fix the order of events so the Chinese dialogue doesn't have to be dubbed?
avatar
I can confirm Mann's D.C. of BLACKHAT is still yet a 3rd revison cut, even slightly different than the D.C he showed in 2016 and then later aired in 2017 on FX/DirectTV/TNT.
avatar
https://github.com/Asd-g/avslibplacebo#tone-mapping this does a decent job when you are tonemapping using Avisynth frame server
avatar
@Falcon in the latest version of Avidemux, use the "HDR Tone mapping" function setting under the "Video" tab at top. You can also set it permanently under Preferences. : https://i.imgur.com/uAW1nw6.jpg

Are you just watching or meaning to color correct the results? I used FFMPEG, others use ripbot264
