I kind of liked the "open matte" 2D version. It was easy to take the eye with audio (the other is just video) from the 2 discs and join them together.
Problem was that it wouldn't fit on a BD50 so I had to rencode it to fit (bitrate was only slightly lower, however, higher than the 2D, "hard matte" version).
Obviously , movie only, no menu, Eng audio only.
From the several points in the movie that I checked, colors, contrast, etc, seemed identical. When I look at the 2D version now it looks "cropped".
Which, of course, it is. This all on a Pio 50" plasma Elite.
See below comparisons:
