I have been working on few IMAX pre-show trailers over the past few months. I must admit, I got started on this and then got a bit distracted. However, I am working on putting these together and in some multiple formats – PS3 compatible and HTPC versions much like the other demo trailers on this site.
I found a multi channel source of ‘Never Compromise’ which many have asked for, but it needs some adjustments. The surrounds seem too loud, or the narration in the centre channel is too low. One interesting point is that it is 5.0, not 5.1. Needless to say, the rumble of the jet engine is not very convincing. So I am working on a better mix for use in home theaters – that mix may be perfectly fine for an IMAX theatre, which has much larger speakers than what people are using at home. This will be available in 1080p and 4K as well.
In terms of Theatrical Trailers, there has not been a lot of new content available as of the past couple of weeks. Angry Birds Trailer 3 will be up soon, although I have had some syncing issues with the audio. It is fine in the beginning and the end, but off in the middle. I spent way too much time trying to figure out why, and I am just going to start over on that one.
