interesting, there’s a 480p transfer on the spleen claiming to be the 1973 version, is that from this print? Perhaps it could be used as the source to created a despecialized version of American Graffiti.
The Spleen can go suck a fuck.
35mm print would be best. 1080p or 4K scan. Would it ever happen? That’d be neat.
The one on myspleen is a 35mm scan, it’s just 480p
That’s fucking hilariously stupid that it’s 480p, not 1080p or 4K.
Considering that the scan was made almost 40 years ago, I’m not sure what more you’d expect. Certainly don’t know why you feel so committed to shittalking it.
How do you know it’s a 40 year old scan?
There are some optical issues that simply would not happen on a remotely contemporary scan. It looks like a very old telecine with damage of its own rather than issues from an old film print (the print itself looks pretty good - all the visual issues aside from dirt and grain seem to be the fault of the scan being in poor condition). And the print is almost certainly pre-1978 because it has the same advertising tags that were on the original poster.
Could it have been transferred using sub-par homemade equipment?
