Re: TITANIC 3D Blu-ray 4-disc collector's edition

so they lumped all the pod featurettes together on disc 4 it seems.

a 194 minute movie in 3D can't fit on one disc? that's new news to me.

You should see probably see them side by side before you pop off about the 1.78 version being a straight open matte of the 2.35 image. (On top of it being great... Too much head room, the framing doesn't look right.)

You could also do some research into Super 35 and how Cameron uses it. - I can't remember, did they ever put the extra on the BD showing the process for Terminator 2? If not, I sure someone's ripped it onto Youtube by now.

So... You do Blu-ray compression during your spare time?

Blu-ray 3D has to utilize two, separate video encodes. Two, seperate 194-minute MVC encodes on a single-disc would be disastrous.

Yeah, I went into that a little on the previous page. It would not have been possible to put the whole film on one disc unless they did a single side-by-side broadcast-type encode which would not be full 1080p.

Blu-ray 3D does not have two separate video encodes. There's a lot of redundant data between the left and right eye views that only needs to be stored once. A 3D encode takes up about 1.5x the amount of space as a 2D encode.

Re: TITANIC 3D Blu-ray 4-disc collector's edition

Here's some screenshots comparing the 1.78:1 and 2.40:1 versions of the film that are both available on the Blu-ray 3D combo pack:

http://caps-a-holic.com/hd_vergleich...on=1&lossless=

Other than two screenshots (one being linked), the other screenshots in 1.78:1 are simply that of the mattes being removed.

I'm so glad I caught the 1.78:1 version in IMAX 3D. It's too bad Cameron didn't release film strictly in 1.78:1 in 3D during its theatrical re-release (non-IMAX were in the film's OAR of 2.40:1), but I'm glad its retaining that aspect ratio for the Blu-ray 3D release.

Would someone who doesn't have 3D playing hardware be capable of watching the 1.78:1 version?

For the North American release, I'm going to be safe to assume no. Paramount has disabled 2D playback on 3D discs in the past, so I don't see why this one would be different.

However, for the overseas release, you might be able to. Fox hasn't disabled 2D playback on their 3D discs in the past and this might be the same.

Fox's release is also region free whereas Paramount's is Region A locked.

However, one can't get a straight answer on Blu-ray.com if the Fox release allows the 3D discs to be seen in 2D. Personally, I'd wait if the answer does become yes. It's a Fox release. It'll be dirt cheap in no time from Amazon.co.uk.

The 3D disc is 3D only, everywhere. Fox's disc such as Ice Age 3 and Voyage of the Dawn Trader were 2D/3D because they were originally promotional discs.

Wasn't there a making-of made at the time of the DVD SE that wasn't included at the last minute? Didn't see it on the extras here...what happened to it? Still looking forward to this release.

I think there was a behind the scenes documentary that was originally broadcast on Fox that was only included on the international DVDs. It is not included on this new set.

Re: TITANIC 3D Blu-ray 4-disc collector's edition

I can't seem to decide whether to keep my pre-order on this or cancel it. I know it will look great and be a nice package but I know it may get watched once and then never watched again. Hell, I bought the special edition DVD version and never watch it once. Just put it on a couple of time to show off my home theater to people.

I scored it for around 20 bucks but is that worth the price of it just sitting on a shelf and one viewing?
