I went through the workflow process to determine what caused the banding issue present in the Avengers Endgame IMAX trailer that I uploaded on Dec 21. From that, I was able to eliminate a transcoding step and now have a version that is much closer to the master. The original source was JPEG2000. In the first attempt, the original was transcoded to ProRes. The ProRes was then transcoded to H264. Some editing was performed on the H264 encode and the final video was produced from that. This new version used the ProRes created from the JPEG2000 source, and only one transcode to H264 was performed. Now, there is still some banding, but it is comparable to the original 1080p widescreen version. I don’t think I can get it any better.
You can get the new 4K version, as well as 1080p .mkv and .mp4 versions here. I have also experimented with H265 – HVEC, but I am not happy with the results. I will keep working on that, but for the mean time, I will stick with H264 – AVC.
In other news, I will also be uploading both Captain Marvel IMAX trailers, however I am going away to visit family so those will not arrive until the new year. With that I wish you a very happy remainder of 2018; and I look forward to providing you with the best quality trailers in 2019!
I just added my custom 5.1 mix for Brightburn (2019) created from the Dialogue, Music and Effects tracks. This one was a lot of fun to do as there was a lot of different types of sounds, and not like a lot of trailers where there is constant loud music from start to end. To me, this was more of a small movie. Head over to the Brightburn (2019) page to check it out. I hope you enjoy it. Brightburn hits theaters May 24, 2019.
I uploaded a new encode of Trailer 1 for Avengers: Endgame (2019). I received some feedback from a visitor to the site – Shu Ming Liu (your’re famous now!) who pointed out that the shot at 1 min 17 seconds (the aerial shot of the Avengers HQ) looked like crap. Well, those were not his words, but that is what it looked like. I am happy to say that it now looks much closer to the master. Thank you Shu Ming Liu for pointing it out. If the quality of that scene bothers you, then I suggest you download the re-encode. I will say, however, that there may be some trade offs in making that shot look better. My initial inspection didn’t pick up any issues. Any feedback between the two is appreciated, and will help me with decisions moving forward. My aim is to provide the best quality possible for those who appreciate more than YouTube can offer. Your feedback is helpful in ensuring that I deliver my intended quality.
Well, this Marvelous week continues, with the first trailer for the new Avengers movie! (Spoiler Warning!!) We know that some of our “dead” heroes come back from Thanos’ snap, seeing that Spider-Man: Far From Home is coming out later in 2019, but what role will Captain Marvel play? Interesting that she did not appear in the trailer, unless I missed her. Speaking of Spider-Man, the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) will arrive this weekend.

Here is what some satisfied customers had to say: (From Mission Custom Preshow Trailer)
Brian (verified owner) – November 23, 2017
I would give this product 10 stars if available. I decided to order the 1080p custom Mission 7.1 PCM trailer and it is better than I expected. I received a very quick response after initial order on specifics for the images and text I wanted integrated in the beginning and end scene. Quickly following that, I had a file to download for review. it was exactly as requested but I had a second thought on the text on one of the scenes(Too much). I asked if it would be a problem to edit. The request was granted without any questions or hesitation and was quickly corrected within a few hours. This sounds absolutely amazing in my custom home theater, and looks incredible with additional image scenes with text that were added. I would recommend this for a must have for the finishing touch to complete your home theater or just a cool factor! Do yourself a favor and get this. This intro blows away all of the other intros I have owned or seen. Thank you again. I hope to see more!
