A cinema only format for now - [In reply to] Can't Post

With the current technology in home cinema, it can't be done. Which is to say they won't do it. Expect new players and tv's and a new Blu-ray standard before 48fps is available to home cinema.

Regarding the 2:3 pulldown - well if you care about projection and proper viewing the your equipment should do it at 24 fps and the multiply it to 96 hz. but thats a whole other debate - most decent flatscreens and projectors show blu-ray movies in 24fps.

Another thing to consider is that PJ wanted the 48fps for several reasons but one of them was to have something that was exclusive to Cinema and to lure people back to the Cinema. Right now TV companies seem more interested in thinner "smarter" and 4K tv so i doubt 48 fps is on the horizon - perhaps in 2-4 years time.

Right now a 3D movie like Avatar is maxing out the the blu-ray format so it would require and new standard supporting 2-4 times as much data since thats what we're talking about with 48 fps 3D since it's 48 frames per second pr eye. at least if we want it the way it was filmed.

For now i'm content with seeing it in 48 fps in the cinema and enjoying the clarity of blu-ray in 24 fps when that arrives.
And yes the EE is confirmed, PJ said in a video interview that AUJ will be 25 minutes longer and he has already cut it!

                Does this involve speeding up the movie?// arithmancer Send a private message to arithmancer Jan 8 2013, 12:04am

                    I'm sure the Blu-ray and DVD will use the 24fps version.// Aragorn the Elfstone Send a private message to Aragorn the Elfstone Jan 8 2013, 12:12am

    True 48fps would require an update for the Blu-ray player sycorax82 Send a private message to sycorax82 Jan 8 2013, 5:17am
