I watched the three sections you mentioned, and while the chant is definitely interesting I think the Dance section takes the cake in terms of visual appeal. Very good color pop with the clothing and such. It shocks me still that this was filmed in 1992 and transferred to BD with such great quality, meanwhile we get movies that were filmed 2 years ago that look like trash.

Unfortunately I'm gonna have to modify the timestamp of the Dance sequence because it features some tribal naughty parts, some of which may even be tribal children, and well.... well... ya know.

Five-star bass movies are the place to start, work down if you need more. That thread has timestamps, discussion and waterfalls so you know exactly what LFE content is involved.

HTTYD I think the consensus is the dragon crash at the end of the film is the most impressive scene.

TRON: Legacy I'm not sure, there seems to be bass all over, but this is also the reference track for all other audio channels, so I'm sure quite a few scenes would demo very well.

I didn't get around to watching "How to train your dragon" but it's on my netflix queue and I'll perhaps add it to the disc.

A little teaser of the screen selection. This will be what is seen when the disc is first booted. CIH users will select scope and all of the clips displayed in the menu will be limited to those of the scope variety. You should only have to choose this once per load as the menu, after view a clip, should return to your last selection.

This BD is for sure reference quality. UPPPPS, last thing I would have thought is taking that clip with such intent, although now a days of political correctness I can see why. There are plenty of clips to choose from this BD, I can suggest other time stamps is you wish or need more visual material.

Steve,
I would like to reccomend some Music sections, that IMO would blow away most people.
I will add more info and time stamps later on....

Thanks AJ

I need some help with an understanding of CIH systems.

What actual screen ratio do you guys use? Unfortunately it's not as simple as 1.78:1(widescreen) and 2.35:1(scope). There is 2.40:1, and 2.20:1. Likewise for widescreen there is 1.85:1 and so on.

Is there is an issue for the CIH users to display all "scope" content that is 2.20:1, 2.35:1 2.39:1 and 2.40:1 without having to readjust anything?

My screen is set up physically as 2.40:1 (5ft x 12 ft) I have not noticed any problems with other 'scope' ratios like 2.35 or 2.39 --never tried 2.20. From my understanding though would just be small areas on fringe of screen where would have black bars or overscan spilling off of the viewing surface by fraction of inches due to changes. I say keep in native ratio whatever that is and we can worry about any changes on our end if need be as you are doing all of us a great service here.

Is there is an issue for the CIH users to display all "scope" content that is 2.20:1, 2.35:1 2.39:1 and 2.40:1 without having to readjust anything?

See Above. not that I have seen in my set-up and if so I can fiddle a bit on my end if needed

Thanks again for the first disc and really really jazzed about round 2.

The physical area of my screen is 2.39:1. I have it dialed in for 2.35:1 and have to fiddle a bit with anything else, but I'm using a Panny 4000 and have not set presets for the other aspect ratios. I think that the 2.35:1 aspect ratio is the most popular for DVD and BR release.

If the movie is authored in another aspect ratio, then the edges will be clipped if larger than the user setup, or will have a dark area around it if the movie is smaller. Those of us with CIH setups have become used to fiddlinig or ignoring.

My advice is to just pick a common aspect and go with it.

Thank you for asking, and for producing this excellent disk!

Consider some of these titles... I'm authoring a dl demo disc with the first part Dolby True HD titles & the second dtsHD MA titles... don't have the timestamps. (multiAVCHD)

Do we know an ETA of when version 2.0 will be released? I was holding out, but I may just get the original.

I also have a CIH setup, Scubasteve and although there are varying formats of 21:9, I would just choose one and go with it between 2.35:1 or 2.40:1.

I checked the specs and the reviews for this disc...

It has excellent reviews for both audio and video and overall concert. The technical specs for the BD are DTS-HD Master Audio, 16:9 AVC video and 1080I resolution.

So for this disc, even if music were to be considered, would be a NO due to the 1080I resolution.

Very good BD though!!!

I wanted to give another little teaser, I've gotten a bit of work done on the disc, still plenty to do on the authoring side but I believe I'm rounding the last corner when it comes to clip collecting. Target release in hopefully 3 to 4 weeks.

Notice, compared to v1.0, that I've attempted to pull all of the text in somewhat so as to prevent any issues with overscan.

Lastly, I'm still working a bit on the text, I literally ran out of room for all of the clips that I have and for the clips with long names (How to train your dragon) it was difficult to get it in. I want to avoid an acronym that is "HTTYD".

That's hopeful, assuming I don't run into any snags and don't get too drunk and over-fed for the 4th of July holiday!!

We can wait an extra two days. Go get drunk and over-fed.

Absolutely, It'd be a BD-100 if that media/hardware was affordable.

That would be sweet for those of us using a media server instead of actual discs.
post #147 of 1675
Just wondering but will this disc be region free or no?

I am in Australia so I wondered if I could use the disc?
post #148 of 1675
Can't wait! (subscribing to the thread to keep an eye on a release date)
post #149 of 1675
scuba, just checking in and offering some support for your hard work! I still use the first one several times a week! It's my most used disc by far.

The teasers for the second look outstanding!
post #150 of 1675
