Or that we suffer from the same generational myopia we laughed at when we were younger.I agree. I miss the "movie look" old films had. you look at digital and hd movies these days and they look like soap operas and tv movies. Just more proof hollywood doesn't know what it's doing.
I think it has more to do with WHAT they are filming.I agree. I miss the "movie look" old films had. you look at digital and hd movies these days and they look like soap operas and tv movies. Just more proof hollywood doesn't know what it's doing.
Say STAR TREK: The Next Generation had been filmed not on film, but using "80's digital video" then we couldn't get amazing looking TNG at 4K resolution.Why would we do that though?
Same here.I don't see a problem with digital replacing film at all. But it's still a relatively new technology, and I think it's a bit premature to be ditching those old film reels just yet.
Not alwaysTrue, but at the same time anyone knows that if you have 100GB of files you should back them up so that when the drive fails you still have them.When the file types change you can convert them.
I have personally several AVI files which use some weird behind codec that can't be played on anything but my very old Win 98SE computer. Then there's also where John Knoll talked about Episode 1 3D convertion that a lot of that stuff can't simply be re-rendered due to the files being to old. Same with the restoration work on Deep Space Nine.I can't think of any digital video file that can't be read now and converted to a different format. Any examples?
Well, the fact that you can play them on your Win98 machine means you could convert them to .mov files and play them fine on a newer system.I have personally several AVI files which use some weird behind codec that can't be played on anything but my very old Win 98SE computer.

You would think, yeah. I mean, at a certain point, it becomes prohibitively expensive or impractical to have a screen big enough that you can see the difference in resolution. Like, ok, you've got a 4K Purple-Ray player with a 12.2 DTS-Mega-HD sound system...but the screen is 60" so are you really even able to see the 4K resolution in sufficient detail? Ultimately, I think it's those kinds of size considerations -- given current technology, anyway -- that limit the resolution issue.I personally wouldn't be too concerned about digital video constantly jumping up in resolution, you can only bump it just so far where few people, if any, can tell the difference between the new resolution/format and the old one. I think that we're more likely to see an eventual shift in medium over ever increasing resolution be it glassless 3D, holograms, VR movies plugged into your brain, who knows but I am certain that the resolution increase will eventually stop.
Turning off those idiot features is a must. Motion plus, noise reduction, edge enhancement, detail enhance etc :facepalm on some tv's it's near impossible to even switch them offI find motion interpolation to just look AWFUL. I go watch movies at friends' houses who leave motion interpolation on all the time and it drives me insane how artificial it looks. I turn it off and they say it looks weird and choppy (I guess because now they're brainwashed...) whereas, to me, it just looks like everything's been shot on videotape.
Shot with Canon 7D, Panavision Cameras and Lenses and Red One Camera. And posted in vimeo. Death of 35mm indeed! :lolWatch the wonderful film Out Of Print by Julia Marchese, a documentary about New Beverly Cinema that also explores the significance of 35mm and revival cinema.

This is a recent blog post by Julia. She was an employee at the New Bev for nearly 8 years. But sadly due to recent management problems, she decided to quit her job there. She was going to premiere the film in 2015 at the theatre, but now has released the film online for free viewing. The film runs for about 87 minutes.
