  1. Yep and a big one to look out for in Gladiator is the small fight in the opening battle with the huge Germanian barbarian.
  2. I just got done watching it tonight actually and yep the shutter angles are very easy to spot if you are we sensitive to it. Its a stunning remaster.
  3. You shouldn't really be using FI at all. Most directors and cinematographers I know, and I know a fair few don't like HFR video for much the same reason some of us purists don't like it. It kills the immersion, looks unnatural and fake and departs from the artistic look that they have come to love. So I wouldn't call it a flaw at all. Its all part of the artform. The other reason you shouldn't use FI is you are then breaking all director intent such as the carefully considered shutter speed/angle decisions used during filming as that can be very fluid through a film to enhance certain scenes In a particular way. Try watching Saving Private Ryan and Gladiator with FI, it would be totally horrible and completely unlike what either director intended. Both those movies have very dynamic and often changing use of shutter angles to give a desired affect. All thrown out the window with FI.

    JVC 4K E-shift & UHD?

    Sorry yes that's actually what I meant to say, the op has an x500. I've had a x7000, x9500(current) and two x9900's. My 9500 is the cream of the crop.

    E-Shift actually made a bit of a quantum leap in resolving power with the X5000/X7000/X9000 series too when they moved to E-Shift 4. I actually find it sharper and superior to E-Shift 5 too. MadVR's HDR tone mapping is now becoming excellent and you can use the Arve curves with it to produce stellar HDR image on any display now, so with older models if you really want to view the new format you totally can. I have been a big part of that process to help Madshi improve it over at AVS, you can follow that thread here: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/24-digital-hi-end-projectors-3-000-usd-msrp/2954506-improving-madvr-hdr-sdr-mapping-projector.html

    Indeed the end result is what matters. Again, I have never seen NGU bested so far any comparison I have seen, unless you are willing to show some evidence to the contrary? BTW You are not supposed to use the sharpening tab functions along with NGU, Madshi made that fairly clear when NGU was released, that's part of the point of it, its actually built into the algorithm. The sharpening tabs are detrimental to NGU's results. You must be the only person on the internet I know of that think MadVR's results are crap. Anyway, you are set in your ways

    Thats why there is also NGU Anti-Alias and NGU soft.

    Hilarious. Prove it. Follow my lead and give me actual data I can look at rather than words... I have never seen an upscaling algorithm best MadVR NGU.

    He uses madvr with a gtx1080ti probably daily.... He also happens to have probably one of the highest resolving projectors on the market so what he is seeing in detail level is beyond you and I by a LONG shot.

    Oh really? I am telling it exactly as I see it. Not just here, DTV too, the past couple of years, one literally cannot have a conversation about 4k or HDR with Owen jumping in telling us we are all looking at fake pixels that were never 4k or HDR to begin with especially when he has no actual HDR display/experience with it, nor an up to date 4K display either (eshift 3 has been considerably superseeded), im truly sick of it. When actually presented with empirical data numerous times by myself, its ignored and we have now been reduced to 'well its fine for me as is, so I don't need it' WHAT? I know for a fact I am not alone on this either.

    Good for you! Stop pushing your 'know it all' agenda on others then and I wont comment. You are like the forum bully in here, you jump on any person even daring to mention the word 4K or HDR with an essay on how wrong they are. Its really boring. I CAN see the difference with UHD blurays vs upscaled blurays, last I remember you are stuck on E-Shift 3, perhaps get your machine up to speed and you will also see some merit, your bottleneck is your display, end of story.

    Here I am posting this yet again... So I took the control 5.7k holiday image and shrunk it down to 2160p, then I output a specific 1080p version of the same file using the same 'master' as the source. ALL files are from the exact same 'Master'. Then what I did is compared them all using MadVR and essentially vanilla up-scaling from Kodi, which I think is nearest neighbour or something fairly default and really crap and useless, then I also up-scaled using the MadVR NGU settings I use for 99% of my viewing and compared them all against the original master image. Doing this of course we know what the original would look like in true 4k as it were, and we can see how good/close up-scaling can get to that original. Control UHD Master vs 1080p Vanilla Up-scale http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/113570 1080p Vanilla Up-scale vs MadVR NGU Up-scale http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/113573 MadVR NGU Up-scale vs Control UHD Master http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/113571 Indeed NGU comes very close to the original, but not quite there yet. I should note the Control UHD is still passing through MadVR, but all its doing is Chroma up-sampling, no sharpening. I am really getting bored of people saying there is zero merit to UHD sources... while the difference would be arguably fairly minimal, there are areas here where IMO the difference is very clear, and that extra mile of performance is what we all are into HT for...

    Of course there would be higher black levels without the DI, I never once contended that, I contend though that the scenes where it would if at all be visible if the DI were active and it was not enough to make it close down, it would not matter one single bit because the delta at that APL is very very small and absolutely nowhere near the kind of contrast that these machines are known for. If that were important to you, you should get a a Sony or current Epson, they both beat the JVC at APL content above 4/5% true ADL quite considerably due to higher ANSI, hell get a DLP! But you don't hear people complaining about that regarding JVC's. If you think my grey cards are not a great test (I agree to a point they are an odd data point) then you also have to admit the data I provided, which is measured against those cards shows how drastic contrast drops the second you come out of true black. Those grey cards are DARK. Once you hit 5%, you probably only have about 1500:1 contrast at best in any mode, the difference becomes smaller and smaller all the way to the final ANSI point. This is just another example of making a judgement based on assumption and not experience, and so should be taken with a huge grain of salt. All of the above by the way, is one reason why the JVC Z1 with its phenomenal laser dimming system but only ~12k:1 native contrast with dimming off can go up against a 9500 and be more or less indistinguishable from each other. Just ask @wooferocau

    Not with the DI in play. Without it, absolutely, yes. The iris is fully closed at 1% with the DI on in both photos. Overlaid: Ha, no, not really.
