    Just read over at DVD File that Jason X will be a digital to digital transfer. That's got to be good news!

    Wasn't FOTR also a digital to digital transfer?

    FOTR wasn't filmed in digital.

    Neither was Jason X, but it's still a digital-to-digital transfer because all post-production work was done in digital. I don't know what they did for FOTR, though.

    LOTR was digitally color graded, thus the DVD most likely uses the digital masters containing the color graded film.

    Are we absolutely sure that Jason X wasn't shot digitally? I seem to remember stories just as it was going into production stating that this low-budget horror film was beating George Lucas to the digital punch.

    Yes, I actually think it WAS shot digital. It was before Episode II.

    I read they shot it on film, then scanned it. That's not the same as the Digital Film Lucas used. Lucas never used actual film in his process.

    Okay, just so we now have it correct. I know Spy Kids 2 was shot with digital cameras, and Soderbergh shot Full Frontal with digital cameras? Are there any other digitally shot movies other than these 3?

    The low budget horror film that beat Lucas was Vidocq available on DVD from Seville in Canada.
