Numéro deux (Jean-Luc Godard, 1975)

#727 Post by Oedipax » Thu Jun 21, 2012 6:34 pm

Here's a comparison showing the AR difference in the two DVD releases of Godard's Numéro deux (Intermedio 1.37:1, Olive 1.66:1).

Intermedio R2 PAL
Image

Olive R1 NTSC
Image

As you can see, the Olive loses image at the top and bottom but gains on the sides. And the color timing is quite different, the Olive has a lot more detail in the blacks and is less contrasty overall.

A few more:

Wow, that's a big difference. Are the cropping differences consistent throughout the film? I ask since the opening scene is rather distinct from the rest.

Added a few more screen compares above - it does appear that the differences in framing are consistent throughout.

At the risk of JLG sacrilege, I would say that this looks great at 1.66:1, and the improvement in the transfer quality really seals it for me. Good work, Olive.

I'm guessing ImageShack has added more compression to the frame grabs (note: unlike the last time I made a post like this, this time I AM using a home connection which doesn't recompress the images ;) )

Looks like Imageshack has re-compressed those JPEGs (or they were exported at low quality).

The real disc surely can't look like that in terms of compression? (Unlike last time I said this, I'm on my home broadband connection, BTW!)

Is that a screener made using a DVD recorder or a final authored disc?

Indeed - my memory of the film overall is pretty hazy (I last saw it about six years ago as part of a Wajda marathon), but I don't think I could forget that scene if I tried!

I'm watching it right now, and it is indeed a vast improvement on the old Vision disc - physical print quality aside, I suspect it was sourced from a rather elderly analogue telecine, while the source for this was a 2K scan that may well be at least a generation closer to the original neg or IP.

As for my regular framegrab stalker, I've no idea: I didn't create the DVD-R.

If it has features like finished menus and subtitles, it's authored.

Looking back, I'd guess it is just the captures, but for someone who wasn't aware of that, it would give the impression that the disc is shoddily encoded, rather than a downstream process squashing the size. Yeah, I agree that it'll let you see bigger differences in the two discs, I just hope people viewing have enough tech knowledge of the different stages to understand that the screen grabs are just illustrative in that way.

Are you using VLC or something to take them? There's probably an option somewhere to change the JPEG quality level if you're interested.

"La donna più bella del mondo" (Leonard, 1955) Surf Video R2 SD

One of the most striking looking Eastmancolor films, imo, exhibiting a near Technicolor image.

"Fanfan La Tulipe" (Christian-Jaque, 1952) TF1 Video R2 SD

Criterion called this colorized version "remarkable". Remarkably bad, maybe? Okay, some of it's not horrible, but still...
