Playing around with the temporary setup running a 1271 tonight. HTPC, some with rather too much sharpening, some about right, and 'yo yo girl cop' was no post at all, just regular bilinear scaling. Mainly I played with the color and gamma first; the 1271 is NOT set up optically at all and the convergence is rough at best. Obviously not going to look so hot compared to all the highdef shots being bandied about, but I can still try to make the colors right, damnit!
So, here we go. First, the ubiquitous Fifth Element. Not superbit, by the way. Haven't grabbed a copy yet. I did wave a superbit DVD at my wife the other day (there were like 3 superbit DVDs at some thrift place for five bucks a piece, but none of them remotely interesting to me) saying, "This is what they look like! Superbit! Bruce Willis! Superbit! Bruce Willis!"
Yo Yo Girl Cop. Don't ask. Don't get the movie if you expect all of it to look like these shots. It's just... yeah. It's Japanese.
Grand Prix. Spread across two DVDs; *GORGEOUS* cinematography, probably the best looking DVD I've seen to date. I didn't get the best scenes 'cos Zoom Player likes to die a lot with FFDShow now; not sure why.
There ya go. Remember, don't look at the focus. FWIW, 1271q, 1184x666, 60" 16:9, 65 contrast (not sure of brightness, turned it up until I could see it hurt the black level and then backed it off).
