New versions of IMAX Infinite Worlds have been added to the IMAX Pre-Show Trailers page. This replaces the version that was posted in July. There are a number of differences from the July version. The audio of the new version is much better than the previous version, and I suspect that the July version was not an official mix. The resolution is also better, where the July had 2732×1438 (1.899 aspect ratio) the new version is 3840×2026 (1.895 aspect ratio). I also did some editing to give a buffer at the beginning for smoother start of playback. Another major difference is that this time there is an HEVC 10 Bit HDR Rec2020 version as well. This is my first attempt at color grading and I could not have done it without the help of Sergio Novelli. While we are mostly happy with the results, I am sure not everyone will be. But please keep in mind that this is a first attempt and the process will continue to be refined. So, head on over to the IMAX Pre-Show Trailers page and check them both out. I also want to thank Johann for sending the new version along.
The new IMAX preshow trailer “Infinite Worlds” is now up at the IMAX Pre-Show Trailers page!
Thanks to a kind visitor to the site, we now have a much better quality of the much sought after “Nature’s Fury” trailer in Dolby TrueHD ATMOS 7.1. You can find it at the Dolby Trailers page.
I also added some direct links to the IMAX 4K and 1080p versions of the Avengers: Endgame (2019) first trailer as some folks have been having issues downloading from We Transfer. This should take care of that.
I have been asked about John Wick 3, and I have put together a nice up mix of Trailer 1, but I am still hoping to obtain an official mix. If I don’t get it today, I will upload it tomorrow. Stay tuned.
The recent IMAX Sonic Anthem pre-show trailer has been added to the IMAX Pre-Show Trailers Page.
Good news for those who have been patiently waiting to get the IMAX Sonic Anthem trailer, because there are two versions now available. “Prepare to Believe” has the original 5.0 channel DTS audio track. For “Prepare to Celebrate” I added a LFE track which will get your neighbours attention. This version also has the DLP Cinema logo at the end. You can find these at the IMAX Pre-Show Trailers Page.
As usual these days, things seem to take longer to do than I plan for them to take. However, I am pleased to say that I have uploaded 3 versions of the IMAX ‘Never Compromise’ Pre-Show! All versions have the same audio – which I have made some adjustments to from a version I found at demo-world.eu. That file had a 5.0 channel track (no LFE) and I felt that the center channel was not present enough during the race car segment. For this trailer, I built an LFE track that is only present at three points. I also did some adjustments to the overall balance and levels between the channels. I think it is quite effective, and I hope you do as well. For the video, all present sources that I could find have some banding in the opening, and I could not find any version that did not. In the end, I settled on the 4K source that IMAX uploaded to YouTube and created the other 1080p versions from that.
‘Never Compromise’ can be found at the new IMAX Pre-Show Trailers page. I do have some more to upload soon.
