14.16Mbps VC-1 vs 17.29Mbps MPEG-2 screencap comparison - Mouseovers here






To be honest I was expecting the VC-1 to outperform the MPEG-2 a little. Quite the opposite. Neither one looks that great though.

I tried to find frames that weren't a big discrepancy in size but the entire scene with them around the sinking car is lower bitrate on the VC-1, so that wasn't really possible there. And that was the most taxing scene in the movie IMO.

24.81Mbps AVC vs 26.95Mbps AVC screencap comparison - Mouseovers here









Not only does the Danish SF Film release have significantly more blocking despite only being 2.14Mbps less, they did automated digital scratch removal on it leaving all those "painted" artifacts you see. Thankfully for the most part these aren't visible in motion (though some are, like the sections of the blinds disappearing throughout the first minute of the film).

And despite displaying no signs of automated scratch removal, the French TF1 release actually has FEWER print anomalies as you can see in screenshot #1, #3, and #6. I wonder if they went through a manual process to paint them out.

Sadly the superior French Blu-ray is Region B locked with forced French subs and has PAL higher-pitch audio.

Funny, I thought the French release sounded great, but I hadn't watched the US DVD in a long while. I'm not really sure why the audio would be sped up if the framerate is still 24Fps.
I guess the best comparison would be when the Region A release finally hits.

I recall some people were also claiming that the UK release of Woodstock was also sped up, although it was also still at 1080p/24. Having both US and UK releases, I compared the two and could not hear a difference for the life of me.

Just a few grabs from episode 9 since I'm lazy and I'm sure it's much the same throughout.

The lower bitrate and having 2.5 times the number of frames certainly don't do the broadcast any favors, so I tried to be kind and only took I-frames from it.

Yeah, horrible blocking in MPEG-2... though, the jump from 720p to 1080p doesnt do much as far as fine detail (aside from grain retention). It is nice to see that Fox doesnt even DNR their broadcasts.

Like to add that Warner ported the HD DVD encode of KissKissBangBang to BD in europe.

Good movies are as rare as an on topic discussion.

Indiana Jones Trilogy, old master via BBC & Sky HDTV vs new remaster via WOWOW HDTV. The DVDs are based off the old master. I wonder how long Paramount plans to sit on the new transfer and not release it on Blu-ray.

Raiders:

Temple of Doom:

Did they redo the visual effects for Raiders??? That shot looks almost completely different!

Interestingly, the new transfer has the original matte painting effect, not the CGI nonsense that was included in some broadcasts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_sFW8grQtU

Well, I reviewed both DVDs (the original issue and the SE version) and they both use the matte painting. So it can't be the same master for the BBC-HD version.

BTW: The CG doesn't bother me. The original looks a bit animated.

The CG was probably spliced in as an experiment. The colors, dirt specs, and framing match the DVD.

The new CG isn't horrible, but I'm against any revisionism without the original available.

Why are you participating in any BD thread then?

How about owning media where you can play it any time you want?

Reviving this thread with a small comparison I should've done many moons ago.

26.56Mbps VC-1 vs 23.00Mbps AVC (replaced Sony version is only 2kbps less)

BVHE UK Blu-ray vs Sony US Blu-ray vs Sony US Blu-ray v2 vs "The Cutting Edge" from Bullitt HD DVD




Same transfer, right down to the print artifacts. The Euro encode is slightly superior to both Sony versions.

I think it's the noise filtering only that screws the colors. For example, this is what happens when your turn on the mplayer temporal denoiser in ffdshow:

I believe, and someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but Spielberg has final say on all remasters and releases of his films, so they Paramount has to make an effort or he wouldn't let them release anything.

Those Indy shots are making me so excited for the Blu-ray release. I'm guessing we will be getting both Star Wars and Indy trilogy in 2011.

The first two images are from PBS satellite feeds (AMC-21). These feeds are ATSC compliant (1920 x 1080 interlaced) and were captured using TSReader. The first image is a frame from the PBS Nature series (WNET, New York), the second image is from Soundstage (WTTW, Chicago). The third image is from AVS member dr1394 (Ron) site that contains quite a few test pattern files. The file is the “20 to 35 MHZ 100% bursts 1920x1080”, click here for more. The frames were captured using VideoReDo TVSuite. All images are MPEG-2.

There is still PBS that broadcast 1920 x 1080 at full bitrate? Mine has about 1,000,000 multicast channels that rendered it unwatchable. And yeah my PBS is 720p at 5 mbps mpeg-2 last time I checked

Looking back ten years ago when Rudy Maxa was the the only HD program from that channel. My only source of HD back then

I agree and it's a real shame because PBS has some great programs in HD. It seems quantity over quality is still the rule of the day.

I receive the programs direct from PBS via AMC-21 satellite. I use a Twinhan 102G DVB-S card and a Winegard DS-3100 1 meter dish to tune the desired satellite transponder. TSReader (Standard) software is used as the front end and will record the program to a hard drive or send it to my D-VHS machine via Firewire for watching in real time.

I stumbled upon some curious exchange from three years back. I somehow automatically assumed that Xylon matches the frame types and well, not only the frames. But you never know! I wonder if somebody explained to Xylon what is the difference between I, P and B types of frames? Otherwise we can't be sure what we are looking at...

You can use Elecard StreamEye to chceck type of the frame.

Try to browse some movie frame by frame and you should see that some of them look better than others (even around the same scene).

Drawing blanks here.

Trying to match both discs or multiple discs/broadcasts onto the same type of frame would be incredibly difficult if not impossible, since the different encodings are going to allocate everything differently.
