9. Film Process: Super Technirama 70 - uses two 35mm film prints to create a 70mm film. Its aspect ratio is 2.35:1. Sleeping Beauty was the first Disney animated feature in 70mm film.

http://www.widescreenmuseum.com/widescreen/wingtr3.htm

"The camera uses an entirely new type of anamorphic (squeeze) lens and utilizes a double-frame negative which passes horizontally through the camera. The resulting image on the screen, after being printed on 70-millimeter film, has no "separation lines" and is equally brilliant and undistorted when viewed from any seat in the theatre, no matter how far to the side or how far up front the seat
may be."

I already liniked that in the other Disney thread.....The process for how they do it though is exactly what i said above in my other post.

Imagine watching the movie on a 120" projected image.

That fullscreen dvd looks almost like blowup of the widescreen. Barely any extra detail at all.

Blu-ray looks stunning. 2-D animation and HD were made for eachother.

This is just stunning. Truly amazing. I've never been a big fan of Disney animation outside of Aladdin and The Lion King (since I grew up with them) but this... this is truly a work of art. I think I need to make a Best Buy run during lunch today.

Bonus extras, high quality BD, an SD DVD. My vote for release of this year bang for buck!

I will give props to the platinum edition. The Blu-Ray obviously pops more, but the platinum edition DVD isn't bad at all (other than the @!#$ing ringing). The SE versions are blurred messes compared to the platinum and the Blu-Ray.

I am seriously considering this as this is probably the best critically rated of Disney's classic animations.

Thanks, Xylon.

The 4:3 version is hilarious, truly worthy of the title "foolscreen".

Here's hoping the work on Pinocchio, Snow White and Fantasia turns out equally great (relative to the source material of course).

What are you talking about???!

With the Platinum Edition, you can't even make out the Fat King's eyes. He looks like a zombie. And Blu-ray doesn't just "pop more", it is superior in EVERY way possible.

Alos, let's not forget the 7.1-channel 24-bit DTS-MA soundtrack which Xylon's caps cannot possibly convey.

Sleeping Beauty BD gets my vote for best Disney catalog release this year.
post #43 of 175
Amazing!

Just look at the little figure in the background to the very left, between the soldier's sword and his lance, on the blu-ray it's actually possible to discern the face features, and the details in the clothing, totally gone in the Platinum Edition, and this is on a static screen shot...

Wow!

It's the only vault title this yr!

FYI, the BD is also called a "Platinum Edition".

i totally enjoyed this movie. makes me want to figure out how to lug my equipment to my grandparents place so they can watch it.

i also enjoyed that we got an actual SD dvd, not just a digital copy...err..disney file
post #46 of 175
Thanks for adding the new animation caps Xylon! Spot on!

I think this is the best High Definition release yet (Blu-ray or HD-DVD). Not only is this Disney's greatest animated film ever made -- making it also one the best movies ever made -- but there's a bunch of extras (as previously noted, it also includes a DVD!).

I don't think it can be said enough, but this movie is a work of art, especially in HD!

Wow. Amazing. After seeing these screenshots I am not sure how any AVS Forum member could walk away thinking DVD is good enough. The Platinum Edition DVD is certainly the best of the DVD editions, but it still pales in great comparison to the Blu-Ray version. When I look at the DVD screenshots next to the Blu-Ray I feel like I put glasses on that were the wrong prescription. I plan on watching the BD version with my wife Friday night. Very excited.

I thought we were getting Pinnochio by year's end too?
post #49 of 175
I'm a huge fan of this film on bluray. However, any other Disney movie, probably only classics, that are on in 4:3 will probably not get my attention as much as the widescreen. They will probably turn out to be rentals.

Word is, March 2009 for Pinocchio and October 2009 for Snow White. Too bad Beauty and the Beast isn't coming till 2010

If I'm going to rank these restored catalogs its going to be like this:

1. How The West Was Won

2. Sleeping Beauty

3. Grand Prix

4. The Searchers

I completely agree. I think you have the rankings exactly right. All four of these films are simply amazing.
post #53 of 175
Granted, I AM biased to this film. It is the first film I EVER remember seeing in a theater and I was 3-years old. No VHS or DVDs for a kid born in 1956 as far as re-watching as a child. Nope the artistry and colors have stayed with me.

As a former HD DVD cheerleader I most humbly give my thanks to Disney for bringing this film to a outstanding transfer. Disney, thank you for giving this film the respect it deserves...I know many scratch their heads as to why they chose this film for the initial BD release but just give it a rental, then you will understand. This year also marks its 50th year anniversary.

I hope some Disney folks are on this forum because I want to say Damn good job guys/gals.
post #54 of 175
I'm astounded by the difference between the dvd editions and blu-ray. Now I'm really looking forward in purchasing it. Excellent job Xylon, please post as many pics as you can, I'm total awe. Too bad I have to wait till 2010 for the release of Fantasia.

I have 20/15 vision. Yes, the king's eyes definitely show more on the Blu-Ray. (We all know about high def and details. ) Moreover, the crowd in the background is more focused on the Blu-Ray. However, I stand by my statement that the platinum DVD looks pretty good (for a DVD). I'm still getting the Blu-Ray. On a 42" screen at a 6 ft viewing distance, I bet few could tell the difference (other than the faded, upscaled NTSC vs. the more vibrant high-def).

Watched it last night...amazing picture and the audio--especially the score, is outstanding (although the dialog is on the weak and tinny side).

The movie itself is quite slow by today's standards, but taken in context of the times, it is a truly remarkable achievement in cinema.
post #57 of 175
I got the this tittle yesterday and watched it at night. Excellent picture but I wonder why some scenes are a little soft and a couple of them are really out of focus like if they were zoomed, this happens mainly in the part of the movie when Aurora meets the prince, but 99% of the movie looks absolutely stunning. I have also seen this problem with some older movies on dvd like White Christmas.

I saw that too and found it puzzling. It did not seem like the animation was drawn intentionally fuzzy. It really looked as if the animation overlay on the background matte wasn't lying totally flat and therefore out of focus. Xylon, can you get some shots of these scenes? I think it was most obvious when the Prince is riding through the woods just before meeting Aurora.

A guy over at HTF has posted examples of color timing problems and it's not pretty. So this release isn't perfect. I know the guy making those posts and he is no clown. He is not recoloring or altering the color of the captures.

I searched for them over at HTF and couldn't find them. What's he basing this on? I would think it would be a mistake to use the previous DVD as reference for obvious reasons if that's what he's doing.
