I haven’t burned it. It plays glitchy on this shot (see link below) on both MPC and my Zappiti 4K HDR mediaplayer.

This is still in v2.0. Its obviously an issue of something specifically just not playing nice with Premiere’s export. I even tried upping the bitrate substantially and just outputting this sequence…comes out pixelated every time. Ah well. Not worth sweating over a few seconds. Definitely peculiar, though.

Damn! That sucks. 'Cause the glitch is definitely not there on the logo-free open matte version I have:

Nor it is on a scope “hdtv” recording of the SE I have:

Maybe the solution could be to cut it out, working on it seperately, and then cutting it back in. I don’t know, just thinking out loud…

Yeah no idea. It’s not the source file, it isn’t there on the SE footage itself, it just occurs upon export. v2.0 is even a slightly different bitrate than v1.0. Premiere just hates that one shot, LOL.

I’ve made French subtitles for this specific version, based on the originals, meaning before they were poorly remade for the DVD. Whomever is interested can PM me.

It’s up on the spleen, but I don’t have a public link at the moment.

Hey, I see its been awhile since anyone posted on here. Is the Spleen even up anymore? I don’t have access unfortunately. But I was hoping to get a link to this somehow. I hate the one with the water mark I got already and found this thread and had high hoops that were crushed quickly lol. Thanks and hope everyone is doing well, healthy and safe!

I have decided to watch the Abyss after a long time. I’ve found two versions online…one is the theatrical edition at 2:35.1 and the other is the special edition at what looks like 1:78.1.

What is the proper ratio ?

The true ratio is 1.33.

The true ratio is 1.33.

So, it will be cropped no matter which version I watch ? Comparing the two, the theatrical 2:35 version seems overly cropped and even a little bit distracting.

2.39:1 is the theatrical ratio. But it isn’t that simple; it’s a Super 35 movie, which means the open-matte versions aren’t pan and scan - you see more of the screen with those versions. But the true theatrical ratio is 2.39:1, always has been.

For those wondering, a Spanish-dubbed version of the Special Edition was released on VHS, with English subtitles (apparently a Fox thing). You can find it on Amazon. I don’t know if it’s fully dubbed or if the Special Edition-exclusive scenes remained in English, but it’s worth checking out.
