    have 1080p SDR projector. should i madvr tonemap all hdr->sdr or stick to 1080p blu-ray disc and call it a day?

    AU CONTRAIRE MON FRÈRE i’ve got 4k hdr dolby vision in my living room, it aint OLED but damn it looks great! that’s the issue is none of the sdr can look great when 4k discs are tonemapped. when i use sdr it looks appropriate. hdr just belongs to direct view imho that can really bring out the...

    Scream (2022) UHD Blu-ray HDR Nit Output Concerns...

    not all DP/filmmakers are a fan of HDR. i know a few friends who work in vfx/editing part of movie industry. they basically say that the HDR pass is automated for consumers. most of the times DP/directors aren't looking at it frame by frame. that's all done in the color timing portions of...

    guilty as charged! hahaha! i'm ok with 1080p on projection. hdr on current projectors are too overblown for my taste. if that i ever changes, i'll circle back. until that day 4k hdr is relegated to direct view tech. only for me. it just seems like everyone is always happy to jump on the...

    have 1080p SDR projector. should i madvr tonemap all hdr->sdr or stick to 1080p blu-ray disc and call it a day?

    i had forgotten that i know a couple of online friends who tonemaps 4k discs/sources to their projectors (both SDR & HDR projectors) & have years and years of experiences with madvr+mpv. so i reached out to them and it just confirms what i suspected all along. so i'll not be wasting more time on...

    have 1080p SDR projector. should i madvr tonemap all hdr->sdr or stick to 1080p blu-ray disc and call it a day?

    immersiveness of projection is unbeatable for sure! that's why i've stuck with projection & also i still like 3D (in spite of everyone else. abandoning it). so i get that point. otherwise, i would have stopped using projectors a long time ago. my other direct view in my basement where my...

    have 1080p SDR projector. should i madvr tonemap all hdr->sdr or stick to 1080p blu-ray disc and call it a day?

    i picked more than that one title but i used that as an illustration for the sake of brevity. 2k1, matrix1, etc. all exhibited the same issues. the blu-ray copies were sourced from the same 4k masters. the point is the same, i could not get any of the 4k discs to look *exactly* like the 1080p...

    have 1080p SDR projector. should i madvr tonemap all hdr->sdr or stick to 1080p blu-ray disc and call it a day?

    true! all i've got to lose is time =P. re: 4k projector. based on my own research re: 4k HDR projectors. it is my understanding that even on 4k projectors, you try to output SDR and then use madvr to tonemap it to SDR. so in effect, you are not using the overblown hdr mode of 4k projectors...

    have 1080p SDR projector. should i madvr tonemap all hdr->sdr or stick to 1080p blu-ray disc and call it a day?

    my current modus operandi is sticking to the 1080p discs and they havent failed me yet. the 4k hdr content playbacks are always overblown/dark and have loss of details on the sdr projector. the only tricky part is sometimes the bd is older releases and not all studios re-encode from the same 4k...

    have 1080p SDR projector. should i madvr tonemap all hdr->sdr or stick to 1080p blu-ray disc and call it a day?

    one o’ my friends does vfx for nf shows like space force. it’s actually the inverse of what you’re describing most 99% content for all of tv movie history is sdr. that gets the best eye and look from director/creatives and everyone in the pipeline, but it’s actually the hdr and often the atmos...

    have 1080p SDR projector. should i madvr tonemap all hdr->sdr or stick to 1080p blu-ray disc and call it a day?

    one more addendum. based on even the pricier (for me) jvc laser current gen hdr10 projectors you gotta figure out the optimal tonemapping for hdr10 content as it was mastered at 1k/4k displays. so matter what projectors you own. you have to figure out what tonemapping solution you need to use...

    have 1080p SDR projector. should i madvr tonemap all hdr->sdr or stick to 1080p blu-ray disc and call it a day?

    i do have 4k dolby vision displays in other rooms. like many families we are a multi-display family. i just dont foresee ever going to a “hdr” projector if it wont ever go above 100nits. have hundreds of 4k titles and most are combo packs 4k disc with bd. but like i wrote now that folks like...

    Press Release SPHE Press Release: Columbia Classics 4k Ultra HD Collection Volume 3 (4k UHD)

    i still use blu-ray 1080p discs for my sdr projector. why can't sony add the atmos tracks into the 1080p blu-rays? i've seen paramount/wb/lionsgate starting to do that more for their 4k+bd releases where available both catalog and new releases. i get it, you want everyone to be 4k across the...

    What was your very first movie on physical media purchase?

    91 or 92 for my family. they dont remember now when they ask them, but i do remember them saying how it was "super expensive" that it was $300-400 bucks. i can't totally remember what the VCR was, but i remembered it was mono cause later on when i tried to hook up stereo to it, there was only 1...

    What was your very first movie on physical media purchase?

    i thought it was blu-ray. 4k physical media truly snuck up me and surprised me! i was really shocked when they announced it.

    A Few Words About Poll: What parameters do you seek for 4k UHD releases?

    i’ve picked people’s brains about this and never got any super clear answers except film v digital is “apples and oranges” when it comes to colors. my question is whats the max color film is capable of? is it 8bit, 10bit 16bit , etc? there are general resolutions resolved based in pixels but...

    re: the look of film. even though i did spend most of my life watching 35mm/70mm physical films projected in commercial cinema, i gotta say Robert, that does not make me an expert. i dont even mean like you, i dont think it makes me ANY sort of expert watching film. i never owned any 8mm/16mm...

    oh i've felt it before... that's why i want to get it. it was either that or getting transducer-type stuff.... which i dunno... there is a line of how much you want to spend and i dunno if i'm quite there yet in terms of crossing that line hahaha. cause that's basically like d-box, i dont even...
