I'm sure most readers of this board avoid letterbox transfers whenever possible. Some LBX transfers are top notch (Strange Days), but most are found lacking due to visible shimmer and distracting line structure breakouts. That brings me to my question: while prog scan might not dramatically improve already great (16x9) transfers, will it at least shore up the weaker (LBX) ones? I'm thinking of great movies, like 'The Apostle' and 'Rambling Rose', which are saddled with lots of shimmer and jaggy images. I posted awhile back about the 'benefits of prog scan', but I don't think I specifically asked about LBX transfers. Everytime I cave-in and buy a few LBX oldies, I start to wonder if new technology can solve the problems created by old technology. Any feedback would be appreciated.
