Progress is currently halted at the moment and i don’t know when ill be able to get back to working on this since i don’t have computer access at the time of writing, But rest assured i will finish this! I’ll still be sending out the sample to people who pm for it.
I got inspired to do this from a reddit post on r/fanedit that proposed the idea of an edit of Pixar’s Cars where it changes into the 2 different Open-Matte versions (4:3 and 16:9) Sort of like a IMAX type thing. The OP later decided they weren’t going to do it so i decided to do what they didn’t
So the ratio will change depending on the scene
Scope (2:40.1): Most of the movie
Open-Matte (1.78.1): Races and Action scenes
Fullscreen (1:33.1): TV News Scenes
This will mostly like be a weekend project i actually finish instead of just abandoning it
Also if anybody is interested, I need assistance with upscaling the Fullscreen version as it’s only 480p since it’s from the Fullscreen DVD release and my computer is pretty bad. Help would be appreciated.
PM for a 28 minute sample of what i have so far.
1080p OM WEB-DL (RUS)
480p Fullscreen DVD
with Creed III hitting VOD and it being the first movie in the Rocky Franchise to filmed in IMAX. I’d thought I’d give a similar IMAX VAR treatment to the Creed II
To create this i will be using the Official Blu-Ray for dialogue heavy or calm scenes as it’s not really necessary for those to have all that extra space. For fights and action scenes I’ll be using an 1080p Open-Matte Web-DL (found on Rutor) for those scenes.
Keep in mind (like with almost all Open-Matte versions) some of the sides are cut off however they aren’t major so it’s not a big deal
Edited with Sony Vegas 15
Thanks! @thephantomaton 😃
It’s nice to be able to compare this to the regular version(s).
You might want to remove the D/L link from your post and invite people to PM you for it instead…
got it, just did
UPDATE: Just acquired the HISTORY Channel version via Google Drive.
Edit: PM Me for the GD link
While not quite the Bounce TV Version, someone on the youtube comment section of “Scarface TV Version - funny as hell” says he has a recording of the HISTORY channel version and replied with my email so he could send it my way. Once I receive the copy I’ll be sure to send it here
Tommy Boy is what I would consider to be my favorite movie of all time so i felt like transferring the 4:3 VHS to digital because judging by old yt clips the version on VHS is Open-Matte, I plan to release it on the internet archive.
At the time of me writing this the tape is currently recording on obs and I’m having issues with some purple-green line at the top and I’m currently in the progress of moving and can’t afford a new AV to HDMI converter so I’m thinking a color correction solution would work, I’m not good at color-correcting so anyone willing to help will be greatly appreciated

2008 Blu-Ray (Audio)
1998 OG DVD (for a possible UAR project)

An interesting read
wow the IMAX version was really a last minute thing? that’s crazy
Are you planning on doing the same for the other two prequels - or any of the other STAR WARS films?
maybe RotS but probably won’t do AotC because there’s an hd fullscreen version of that movie from HBO. I also thought about force awakens and using the Jakku Place IMAX sequence. But this project probably won’t go anywhere beyond shits and giggles
Just a simple project I’m currently working on to practice 4:3 Framing, Also going to attempt to frame scenes better than the official P&S versions
2011 Blu Ray (unless someone can get me a copy of that HDTV Rip)
Other than that I’m using Sony Vegas for the editing.
Luke - Jabba’s Place ROTJ
Leia - ANH
Han - Hoth Blue Jacket
I watched the whole video and it is clearly biased but it’s also kind of an interesting video about just difference in other films not just star wars, I feel like the star wars parts of the video are kinda just eh.

I seem to remember reading on imdb that it was 1.81:1, which would’ve roughly split the difference between the 2.39:1 aspect ratio AotC was actually finished at and the 1.43:1 of the Imax prints.
Interesting, I guess they were actually trying to accommodate the movie for IMAX screenings even if it meant losing image (ironic really). Unlike many after which were just the regular version on an IMAX screen, i guess that’s why we have Dolby today
I’ve read various conflicting claims of how ATOC was presented in IMAX cinemas. I’ve mostly heard 4:3 P&S (which would very unusual) but I’ve also heard some claims of 1.85:1. Does anyone really know I’m just really curious
No one has even remotely tried to do a modern cgi take on the prequel trilogy yoda at all. 😦
i mean it wouldn’t work lore wise since yoda was younger in the prequels than the ot
Is there anyway to get a raw scan version of this, i would love to see it
yo this looks sick, I’m planning on watching the original trilogy this weekend (via the 4k projects) so i wondering can i have a link to the subtitles
