I updated FW to 07013 for the XE.
As I posted above, I'm not exactly sure how the AR autodetection is supposed to work.
With that and looking at the opening sequence of The Dark Knight (TDK):
Lumagen does NOT auto-detect the 16:9 -> 2.35 transition from opening cityscape to 2.35:1 portion of movie.
So, when I manually set Lumagen:16:9
- full height for "Imax" sequence,
- but upper/lower black bars for 2.35:12.35:1
- cut off top/bottom for "Imax" sequence,
- full height for 2.35:1
Since I just did FW update, I haven't played with other movies and possible autodetection.
