Do major companies use 35mm negatives, interpositives, internegatives...? Does anyone know what they use to master the Blu-rays and DVDs? I'm just curious.

Interpositives are usually element of choice for film-to-tape transfers for several reasons:

Quote:
1.They are usually in better physical condition than the other film elements. The original camera negative is often checkerboarded on several rolls, or may be chemically unstable if stored improperly.

2.They are very low-contrast and therefore help to preserve shadow detail.

3.Scratches or dirt on the IP appear as black defects on the transfer, which are generally less objectionable than white defects, which would be the case if the camera negative or internegative were used.

Up to half of all movies are captured on HD video and mastered in a Digital Master file. The only film version is the 35mm distribution print, and not even that if you view it in a digital theater. Even movies that do not use any Visual Effects often use HD video and digital editing.


The word "film" is no longer a synonym for "movie".

Do you have any idea what the file size of a average 2hr movie shown in a digital theater would be, and what is it stored on? Just curious if anyone knows.

They come on a standard USB hard drive. The data rate is 250Mbps Max. A 2 hour movie would be around 200GB.

And they use the codec; Motion JPEG2000
