Wow, what a great hobby for those with talent. You know, there might be a market for custom DVD covers. Imagine, DVD, HD, BD covers with common spines that look like a book collection, rather than a patchwork quilt on your shelves. Also an Ex Libris box that you can sign so your relatives know they don't own it!!
Hmm. Forgot. You would be sued PDQ by the studios. Let's keep this low profile. Jack Valenti is still alive.
I'll continue to make coverart no matter the format. I've done so for every recordable audio/video formats I've own and I've owned a lot. From 8track, compact audio cassete, MiniDisc, U-matic, BETACAM... Heck I even made some for my 35mm film cans. but sharing them maybe a problem...
people like you.....that's why everyone watches movies on a disc now. VHS was always the best way to go...easy simple and unmatchable quality. discs scratch easily and are from the devil himself. shame on all of you
?? I didnt know I had that much of an influence. I guess buying every D-VHS release and 3 different deck was a bad thing for the format. Also didnt prerecorded movies on disc come out way before movies on tape? I personally dont care what format movies come in tape, disc, streaming, even film. I watch any way I can as long as compaines keep releasing content no matter the container. Example I still buy lots of VHS tapes to this day.
Less and less, but I still just make them for myself. Some are my own, and mostly not too great to low budget crappy unreleased movies that have no big or no studio backing. Previously when this thread was active I found trying to share well known titles too difficult. Too many people with different sized cases.
Just watched True Lies again on D-VHS and was reminded how thrilling it was 10 years ago to see commercial movies in HD on D-Theater. TL actually looks quite good in HD on D-VHS. It is one of 5 D-VHS movies I have remaining. Can not bring myself to sell the machine because some content is just not available on BD.
Wow, there's a blast from the past. I know there was a dearth of HD content, but what was JVC thinking launching an outdated tape format with a HD band-aid.
But I guess the joke is on me.... still no True Lies BD.
Here's a great idea... bring back the 12-in LD format with a 4K band-aid. [Looks around and sees a bunch of LD fans thinking of the possibilties.... coverart, gatefold packages, lossless 11.2 audio, Kevin Smith saying eff Blu-ray]
I know there was a dearth of HD content, but what was JVC thinking launching an outdated tape format with a HD band-aid.
D-VHS was introduced in 1998, D-Theater came later. Just look at what a large hard drive cost and you can see why tape was very attractive price wise as in 24 GB tape was < $10.00 vs several hundred for a similar size hard drive. 40 GB hard drives were still ≈ $150.00 in 2004.
I still have 3 decks and my brother has 1. I used it to bridge the gap. I have a lot of HD recordings of not only movies, but sports events and music concerts. I watched a movie on it the other night and I still record with it from time to time for sports, concerts, and content not on BD. On my setup, the average person will not know the difference between my tape that is playing or any other HD content.
