    BVHE can stop making all the inserts they want, . . . if they would just give us an anamorphic re-release of CRIMSON TIDE!!! [​IMG]

    Let me get this straight. No inserts whatsoever? A black void to the left of the disc? Or are they using a clear amaray, with a double sided sleeve? This I can live with, but I find no art inside the case really worrying.

    Well, I guess Disney will start putting "Chapter Listing Inserts" as a special feature of their movies, much like "Full Color Artwork On Disc" for Pinocchio (and others)... [​IMG]

    The studios are probably phasing them out pending the switch to the slim cases. Not much room on them for anything other than the disc. And the way the "Family Guy" cases are designed, the hub nests with a circular ring on the other flap to keep the disc from sliding loose, so you can't put anything between them.

    black void it is, my fellow DVDwan.

    it is not like R4 brackley cases, they are.

    but Warner music has started that way, they have.

    beware the cheapening, it has begun it has.

    But how will they explain to consumers about the virtues of the feature films being OAR 16x9 without inserts?

    Oh yeah...I get it now...

    Re Thin Cases - good article. Personally I'm grateful that DVDs didn't follow the cd jewel case model - those being one of the ugliest klutziest packages to hit the market in the last 20 years.

    The rubbery amaray cases were much better, and don't forget, we got to put 2 movies where a single VHS case had been.

    As for the inserts, except on a few quality disks (eg Criterion), most were not very informative. Even the Chapter Lists failed to indicate elapsed time in the run of the movie. (Why DVD players don't permit this useful feature has always puzzled me.)

    I do like movie packages being a different size (taller) than the cd package, and I guess these slim- packs still permit this. Tho thats obviously redundant when the disks the themselves are the same size, and the accountants and bean counters behind "cheap creep" will probably eventually come to that realization [​IMG]

    so, erm what happens to releases that have 2 or more discs? (not boxsets like Family Guy but those 2/3 disc SEs of movies etc) Are they gonna start releasing everything in boxsets now? Wouldn't that defeat the object of the slimpak?

    I do like the idea that they would actually HOLD the disc in place though! no more bloody shakers!

    with a two-dis set, they'd presumably use a thin double.
