I thought [In reply to] Can't Post

they embedded some sort of code that was unique to each screener DVD so they could tell who leaked it?

Farewell Oscars... [In reply to] Can't Post

The major problem of the screener is that while it's in 24 fps alright, it does lack the motion blur inherent to it. It just looks like a 48 fps source with every even frame dropped.

When you look at the Warner logo, or at Old Bilbo doing anything, or any pan - it lacks the motion blur and has the strobing that PJ was that much fighting against with 48fps. Needless to say: had he filmed it in 24fps to start with, he would have no strobing, as it would have gone by the means of motion blur.

Farewell, Oscars. PJ blew it. Congrats.

They do. So what?

The security is broken. The codes are removed or obscured. It's naive to believe this is any sort of barrier against such determined behavior.

Howard Stern's screener copy of Super 8 was misappropriated and used to produce a pirated copy. Those codes won't tell you who stole it.

Whoa! Are you saying that the 24 fps version is just the 48 fps version with every other frame dropped? That would be horrible if true. You have to do things differently, like with the CGI, to make that work.

…all eyes looked upon the ring; for he held it now aloft, and the green jewels gleamed there that the Noldor had devised in Valinor. For this ring was like to twin serpents, whose eyes were emeralds, and their heads met beneath a crown of golden flowers, that the one upheld and the other devoured; that was the badge of Finarfin and his house.
The Silmarillion, pp 150-151
while Felagund laughs beneath the trees
in Valinor and comes no more
to this grey world of tears and war.
The Lays of Beleriand, p 311

Are you [In reply to] Can't Post

judging the picture quality based on a pirated online download? Hmmm, classy!
