1. People see D-Theater and think that means it is better than a compressed HDTV feed, which is normally true.

2. The HDTV is not OAR.

This alone is why I would not want to use it, so knowing this makes no difference if it is found.

Thanks

Its open-matte, I believe, so you could easily crop it to OAR (assuming the effects shots are open-matte, too).

I have both versions (open matte and D-Theater), I believe it's better to use the D-Theater.

Open matte is OK, but it's like an IMAX version of the film. For fans only.

I may have missed this in the frenzy, but do you guys still need the LD for audio? I might have a lead on getting that disc for very, very cheap so I need to know

Yes as of right now we do not have the ripped audio from the LD, how cheap is cheap lol.

I have a guy that gets me all my bit perfect rips but he always asks to keep the LD when it is done.

Yeah judging by only that one screen, the HDTV does look slightly worse, but maybe the HDTV version is free of the smearing the D-theater version has?

I'd love to do a separate project with that HDTV version if somebody could get their hands on it. Mainly because I'd love to see the movie without black borders!

I'm sure you're right, but the D-theater in that comparison shows combing (on the cyclist) and is not the same frame.  Personally, I think they both look like ****. Unfortunately, they are the best that's available.

Oh do not get me wrong, I am far from saying the D is like a top tier Sony 4k remaster, but it is better......... slightly

I didn't get you wrong (and I agree with you).  It's just that I don't think that the comparison shot is a very good one.

If this rip is anything like the 720p one I have (DVHS source) it will do very nicely.  It's better than nothing or the DVD.  In motion, even on a 10 foot screen, it's very filmic.

The d-theater one looks like it has a bit more detail.

Why are we doing detail comparisons on an "HDTVRip 1080p"? The original file is a 15GB 1080i.

That means absolutely nothing. If the original file has less detail and more smearing than say a 10GB file that had no smearing and more detail, would you use the bigger file because it was "bigger"? It really depends on the source and how good it is, than just how big the file is.

I have no idea on the size of the files, but that d-theater one looks better to my eyes as I can see more detail, that's all I was sayin'. :-)

The choice for the source has already been made and the work has commenced.  I believe the rest is just friendly discussion.

Even if it's open matte it could always be matted. So OAR doesn't really matter just as long as we get an even better copy of the movie.

Although i really have no problems with the open matte.

 

Now the question is who is going to record this baby?

Damn, I had HDNet Movies for years before Mark Cuban started a war with every cable company on the planet... and they show such great movies.  Time After Time and The Poseidon Adventure are on in June also.
