    Re: Disneyland 1956 - HD footage

    Wow, those were great! I'm astonished as to how well they transferred from 16mm film, it's amazing!

    Junk in... Junk out.

    HD is a format - not a quality standard. I can 1080p capture anything - doesn't mean much in it's own right.

    Heck, I hope you enjoy my latest HD creation below here, in all it's 1920x1080 glory





    While the film stock is possible for great resolution, the lens/lighting quality of the camera and film's condition will be a huge factor. In this video, the camera was quite a nice camera, and the film's condition seems to be fantastic.

    The 'resolution doesn't matter' point will become more and more a factor as our world tries to 'HD' everything. We need to recognize quality, not just resolution+framerate. See my above HD example of the grey box updating at infinite fps

    But the source is infinite Display is separate from the source.

    Just like the video being shown on vimeo may have 1080p format, but isn't being displayed on your monitor at 30fields per second or even 1920x1080 in most cases.

    LCDs have fixed resolutions, fixed refresh rates, etc.

    The point was that format alone doesn't dictate quality. And these film transfers are great quality, no matter what actual resolution they are.

    Wow. Disneyland looks so different.. The area with the Mark Twain actually looked like the Mississippi.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to share these with us!!

    I love looking at the old footage and finding the things that have changed, and especially the things that haven't changed!!

    I don't understand your point. He said its almost HD, which means to me its almost 1280x720 or 1920x1080. The poster of the video specifically states it was a 1920x1080 transfer. So I dont know why this is considered almost HD. As you said yourself, its a format and not a quality standard and I was pointing out that it was meeting the format for HD. I'm not sure what your trying to correct here. I never mentioned anything regarding quality, just resolution.
    You can never run out of imagination. The more you use, the more you gain.

    Re: Disneyland 1956 - HD footage

    just that the 'almost HD' comment was really about quality. Noting that the resolution IS a HD resolution doesn't really verify or nullify the statement. It just says its X/Y resolution which is really irrelevant in the end. I mean, the vimeo playback isn't at HD resolution or framerate for most people anyways. The playback rate we have here is only in the couple hundred kb/s, not the megabits broadcast HD would be.

    It just struck a nerve with the HD banter that is going on everywhere. Everything is 'HD' and forget looking at the actual resulting quality.. which is why we went HD to start with With lossy compression, low bit rates, scaling, and other techniques that can result in 'HD' done wrong... noting the resolution as the qualifying metric is not really a comparison anymore.

    In the end, this is footage shot with a great camera, and has been captured quite nicely. I'm sure the original source file before being compressed down looks phenomenal.
