Hi all.

I spent such a long time trying to obtain Jurassic Park 35 mm and I managed to get the open matte version, but I just wanted the experience I first got when I went to the cinema back in 1993.
So I have taken the time to crop the non sfx scenes to bring it closer to the experience that I wanted and I’ve also done some re-encoding to bring the file size down. ( the sfx scenes were originally mastered in 16:9 )

The result of cropping those images made the actual height of then more closer to 720p but the end result actually looks pretty good and I can’t tell myself, so I kept the file at 1080p.

I’ve encoded in hevc and file size is around 11GB.
I’ve decided to give links to people who own the bluray would like to see it as the director originally intended.

is there? thanks 😃
Perhaps that is what I saw because I live in the UK.
Whatever the case, what I have done has made the frame size and aspect consistent, so it can be cropped in mediaplayer automatically with no real difficulty.
That was the biggest issue with the open matte, the sfx shots just didn’t match the non sfx shots at all and there were black bars at the side of all the non sfx shots.
it might have made more sense for the original encoder of that file to add black bars on the top and bottom of the sfx shots and render out at a larger than 1080p file… but oh well.

Hello! I’ve been looking for original 35mm versions of Jurassic Park and just came across this - would love to get ahold of it if you could get it to me! I already own the 2011 and 2013 blurays, need to get the 4K ones sometime when I can grab a 4K Bluray player.

Thank you!!

FYI. This may be a bit wiseacre but there is a 16:9 version called 2.0 released from the same guys that made the Open Matte version.

Is that version actually available though? To normal people who cant get membership to those private trackers. If it is then cool but I made this specifically because I couldnt find it after searching for ages.

Btw, all those people asking if this is still available, it might help if you send me a message and actually ask for it. Why should I chase after you to give you a link?

Understand exactly, I’m with you.
Yes, version 2,0 is on Blutopia.

But, you made a good option for those not in the private sites.

There was also a European version framed at 1.66:1.

Hi, can you provide evidence of this? I’m not questioning your claim. Just curious about it. Thanks. 😃

P.S: I love the 1.66:1 aspect ratio! It means more image height in both the live-action and Cgi scenes than in the 1.85:1 version.
