    UPDATED! LOOK AGAIN!
    Im not sure if this is in the right section but....
    Ive been working on my website on and off, and I made one section designed to educate people on OAR. I've added some new screen captures, and re-written some stuff. It is mainly for my friends, but I could do with some outside input. Its not totally done yet.

    At first glance it looks pretty good...pretty professional looking.

    It also looks like a healthy read to take it all in, and I don't have time right now. I'll take another look at it later.

    I'll just mention that, when I got to the bottom of Page 2, I clicked on the Page 3 link and got an error. FYI.

    For now, I'll say GOOD EFFORT and encourage you to keep on working on it. Thank you!

    Looks like you have exceeded your bandwidth. If you need hosting, let me know, and I'll hook you up.

    Looks pretty good. You do have some typos here and there, so I'd suggest a good proofreading.
    example on PAGE 2:

    Unfortunately I only got to the end of page 1 and your bandwidth ran out again... sigh. I suggest you take up the offer for the web hosting! [​IMG]
    It was VERY interesting actually.

    May I ask if there is any web site that I can check the OAR of a particular film?

    IMDB does not have this info and Amazon has a bit but not very comprehensive.

    Unfortunately, the IMDB is not always accurate on the AR!
    For example, I once saw that a film's AR listing (can't recall the title right now) was assumed to be the same as an improperly framed LD's AR. IIRC, the DVD corrected it. This wasn't too long ago either, and I'm sure it's not the only example of it. What *WAS* the name of that film? [​IMG] I hate getting old and senile...

    Nice. However you did not explain how 1.85:1 films are shot open matte. You explained Super35, so I found it strange that you didn't explain open matte.
