    I’m not certain as to precisely what RAH said, as some feel he has the mind of a goldfish, but ZF is NOT derived fully from the original nitrate negatives. Two reels (if that mind is functioning) were lost in a fire, and those reels are derived from b/w masters. Will the average viewer be able...

    If that's accurate, it would entail scanning over 400,000 frames. And that would be only the beginning of the process.

    I believe that was Brothers Grimm. Wasn’t there water damage on one of the strips?

    Nick, I don‘t doubt what your eyes are telling you. My time is extremely limited at present, or I’d investigate further. It’s just not what I’m seeing. Looks wonderful to me, projected, and uprezzed to 4k.

    I just checked out The Mortal Storm, and am seeing zero problems. It's a nice transfer from a quality 35mm pre-print element. Is it possible that somehow, settings on your gear may have been affected by a power failure or other anomoly?
