That is Fantastic
I just wish the studios cared.
That's fine for hard-matted, anamorphic, and wide guage films.
Most people forget that 90% of the non-OAR DVD's out there are open matte. I reccomend seeing www.widescreenmuseum.com for the truth about open matte.
Nice graphic, despite the Open Matte issue. Maybe we can buy a few billboards like that!
In defense of my creation...
It would not be indicative of Open Matte (unless I'm confused), because the sides of the $20 are "cut off" thus you are not getting the bill as it was meant to be seen.
Ergo, Pan and Scan.
Hey, maybe you can make an "Open Matte" version of the picture, Joe! Show the matte opened up, to reveal that there's a boom mike overhead on the left, some light fixtures up on the right, and on the bottom we'd see that ol' Stonewall forgot to put his pants on that morning!
Cool banner, Joe.
It better have DTS tho.
Shame on you David, being from Tennessee.
Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson was a (key) Southern general during the Civil War (in which he died).
Andy here was known by "Old Hickory" (among other names used by his many enemies).
On to the issue at hand... cool image.
Unfortunately, the bill is still worth the same amount even cut as shown, so, yes, the studios will be happen to take it.
Really- does that mean I can cut my $20 bills in half and spend half at one place and half at another?
I know this has probably been mulled over thousands of times, but could somebody give me a brief explanation of "open matte" because, frankly, I just don't get it.:b
This is as simple as the explaination can get:
A movie is filmed on 35mm film with a frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The image is then matted by the theater projector to 1.66:1, 1.75:1, or 1.85:1 according to what is the preffered matting ratio.
Same thing happens for video. The top and bottom are matted to preserve the correct picture.
This is open matte:
If you have a high-speed connection that can handle a 1.3MB animated GIF, you can try this on for size, too.
