Waterworld [spoRv]

_,,,^..^,,,_ presents Waterworld [spoRv] – special project of Restored version

| PROJECTS: Released | In progress | Future | Mission & Setup |

Mission: to fix Waterworld best video and couple it with best audio tracks.

Video source: Italian HD-DVD.

Audio sources: Cinema DTS and laserdisc for english tracks, Italian HD-DVD for foreign audio tracks.

Subtitles sources: Italian HD-DVD for all the tracks.

Project info:

Waterworld is available on Blu-ray; despite the fact it has an higher bitrate of the HD-DVD, the latter is considered by many of higher quality, without DNR; but its color grading is a bit too magenta, so it’s color corrected to display better blue gradients.

I also thought to add the Cinema DTS track, plus the analog english track from the laserdisc; foreign languages are from the HD-DVD Dolby Digital Plus track; they lack the .1 subwoofer track, so it’s taken from the Cinema DTS, and is re-encoded to DD 640kbps.
