I would do this next.

Unfortunately the DVD I have seems to be 1.77:1 - whereas the original AR is 1.85:1

The perfect solution would be that someone rips the 1.85:1 video and I provide the original 5.1 AC-3 English audio. Any volunteers? :D

If you look here: http://www.dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film.php?fid=2292

You'll see that every DVD that has the original 1.85:1 AR has only stereo sound (2 channels). Every DVD that has DD 5.1 audio has an AR of 1.77:1. :?

I have a DVD with the second specs. Does anybody have a DVD version with the 1.85:1 AR? Preferably the Italian or French version for they are PAL too. :googley:

elchup, stop worrying about the AR and rip it if you want to.

Many films are reformatted to 1.78 from 1.85 by revealing a tiny amount of picture information top and / or bottom. This is done because it matches the standard TV aspect ratio and is quite normal.

The difference between those ratios is minute, and you're getting more slightly more image with 1.78 (or rather 1.77 in this case) rather than less.

Do you mean that the 1.85:1 version is more cropped than the 1.77:1? Unfortunately 1.85:1 is the original AR and my version looks quite washed out. I would like to see a frame from the 1.85:1 version just to be sure.

It's as MCMLXXXVIII explained it. I'm sure there are a few exception, but 1.78 has always more picture on movies where the "intended" AR was 1.85.

So I can simply crop it to 1.85:1. :twisted: I'm still interested in seeing the picture of the 1.85:1 version. Maybe it is better. :googley:

Yeah you could crop it to 1.85 if that's what you prefer, it would make little difference though.

Post a VOB capture and I'll give my opinion on the image quality.

I know it was tongue in cheek, but do not make matters worse and overcrop. Its rarely a uniform reveal/hide xyz pixels when matting a movie.

Here are three screen captures, instead of a VOB sample. The video is interlaced. :(

It looks a bit soft but a bit of sharpening should fix that. I reckon it's okay to rip.

I got hold on the Region 1 disc. It is also 1.77:1 so that 1.85:1 info on the net is bullshit. :evil:

I'm going to use the R1 video though, because the image is better/sharper.
