Most of the regular subscribers probably saw this post
of mine mentioning an invitation I received to an IMAX Special Event with Toni Myers who is a renowned producer, director, writer, and editor on many IMAX films. In that same post I also made a brief reference to the fact that she had also been consulted by Christopher Nolan for his movie Intersteller due in large part to her involvement on many of the IMAX space movies.
While I think most guys got the correlation between the subject matter and my excitement in attending an event hosted by Toni Myers, I was asked what my post had to do with 4K Blu-rays and I replied with this post
where I reminded the poster that this thread isn't all about 4K Blu-rays, it's about 4K HDR which comes in a number of mediums including:
- Theatrical Releases
For the earlier adopters one of the first things we used to see the effects of HDR were some small clip we had to download to our computers and transfer them to a USB stick and plug them into our TVs. I really never thought it would be necessary that I would have to find a 4K HDR clip when I originally posted about the event I was going to attend but to my surprise I did manage to find one.
For those who want to play hide and go seek I don't think I could make it any easier for you. Here is a link to a YouTube 1080p non-HDR video which provides a tutorial using Intersteller:
*** LINK REMOVED due to site owner being banned on other forums ***
If you view the YouTube video in a browser and check out the description and click on View More you will see a link to a website where you can download a "free" 4K HDR demo but let me give you a heads up -- when you get to the website you will require a membership to download the clip and you may need a high-end PC to play it on using MadVR so probably not even worth wasting your time on.
The reason I am not including a direct link to the site where the file can be download is due to a few reasons as follows:
- the site requires a membership just to get the FREE download(s)
- they are asking for donations which seems a little bizarre for a legitimate business
- the site offers a number of 1080p HDR movies and claims they can provide many of the current releases in this format
- the site suggests you will most likely require a high-end computer to view the movies
- from my cursory review it appears the site doesn't own the rights to any of the full movies they are offering on their site
I would suggest that if anyone is interested in this kind of stuff then by all means that is their prerogative but in order to avoid posts being removed from this thread it is probably best not to discuss it here without the mods permission. Maybe there is another thread to discuss 1080p HDR bootleg material.
