I think the smaller SD episodes should also be h.264 codec and not xvid, because it is better quality and takes less place, or MPEG2 for DVD.
What is the difference between Blu-ray rip and blu-ray disc rip?
But what I meant was that h.264 is better as XviD for SD and HD. It is the newer codec, you get greater quality but need less space, no matter what the source is. For e.g. when you rip a blu-ray to a 700mb xvid it looks not as good as when you rip it to a 700mb h.264.
And what did you want to show with the dum and dumber screens? The quality of a 720x304 avi is not the same quality as a blu-ray at all.
Sorry when my english is not good, I'm from germany
Yes, this looks like a 35mm Panavision Panaflex film camera, so not a video camera. I hope someone else is better qualified to identify the camera, because it must be easy from a picture a clear as this! It's a still from Evacuation, episode 2.24.
It's very good they fimed it on film, so even when HDTV is outdated they can re-scan the film because 35mm is much better than 1080p. You can't really specify the resolution of film, but a 35mm film is about 7200 x 4800 pixels, I'm watching mitm in 720x576
yep right like I said on the shoutcast stuff It's not on 35mm. the reason is money. Besides super 16 the trick is to use special film : it has to do with the number of hole on each sides of the film : for series they use the cheaper one that means you have less hole on each side ( dont remember the correct name ). this way you have less image per second that usual 24fps 35mm for movies so your film footage is longer per inch of film. I was talking about that because someone said 16/9 is not crop while 4/3 is crop. that really depends on orginal shot and just saying it was made on pana. is not enough. Most series are made by and for television hence 4/3 native format. (take a look at the image above : the camera monitor is 4/3 not 16/9 ). Of course you can digitally remaster 4/3 to 16/9 and vice-versa. Be aware that HD doesnt mean better than original. That's a common trick they use to lure ppl with no knowledge. Expanding a picture pixels doesnt mean you have a better quality at the output but yeah it's HD ... lol
