Bitrate Questions
Time

I have a couple of questions about bitrate.

  1. ARE THERE BLU-RAYS DONE AT 16MBPS?
    If H.264 can re-encode 8mbps DVD down to 2.5mbps with no noticeable drop in quality, couldn’t you get Blu-Ray quality video at 16mbps? Are there any movies on BluRay that have done this?
  2. WHAT ARE 4K BITRATES LIKE?
    What’s the average bitrate of a 4k Blu-Ray? I’ve heard it’s usually around 42mbps, which makes sense calculating it up from the 33.5mbps of many regular Blu-Rays. (factor​ing in the quadrupled resolution, 12-bit color space, and efficiency of h265.), but taking my 16mbps theory into account, could 4k be done at 26mbps? or is that just blasphemy?

[Need Advice!] "Rebel/Empire" Original Trilogy Box Set
Time

So, I’m going for a minimalist look on the outside, and then the inside will be Poster art from the original trilogy. I didn’t want to do the same “Just use darth vader’s face” that everyone else does, so I used the Rebel Alliance symbol on the front, and the Galactic Empire symbol on the back.

Here’s a Work in Progress cover
The front cover

WHAT I NEED HELP WITH:
This is going to be a Gatefold Digipak, and I want to know how I can make the gold and silver parts actually shine gold and silver. How does that work? Is there a special type of cardboard I need to buy? A special type of ink? Will I have to make it part normal cardboard and part foil stuff? Will it be expensive?

When does fullscreen show more than widescreen?
Time

Most Open-matte movies with VFX shots have the VFX composited/animated over the wide frame. (Jurassic Park and Back To The Future are examples) The Fullscreen DVDs will then open up the frame for most of the movie, but then go Pan & Scan during VFX shots.
EDIT: Sometimes they’ll also use different camera lenses altogether for the VFX shots. (Back To The Future Part II’s VistaGlide camera, for example.)
