    Question on Aspect ratios

    I watched Appaloosa in HDX a couple of weeks ago. I could have sworn the movie was 2.35: 1. I liked it and was telling my wife about it, so we rented it again yesterday in HD so we could take advantage of instant viewing. To my surprise, it was 16X9.

    I thought maybe I was mistaken on the original aspect, but I saw a copy of the movie at Best Buy at lunch today and it is indeed 2.35.

    Why was the HD version 16X9 (or 1.85, 1.77, etc.) instead of 2.35? Is this a normal occurance? I haven't rented many titles in HD since I prefer HDX.

    VUDU encodes at whatever AR they get their source material at. It's a longshot, but is your aspect ratio setting correct? I think, the "original" ratio is the middle choice.

      Re: Question on Aspect ratios

      Someone asked this before, but all Vudu movies are done in the Original Aspect Ratio (OAR) if that is what the studio gives them. HD and HDX should come from the same source so I'm not sure why it would be different between the movies.

        Re: Question on Aspect ratios

        I watched Appaloosa this past Sunday in HDX. I thought the movie filled the entire screen.
        But to be honest I really wasn't thinking about whether the aspect ratio was 1.78:1 or 2.35:1. So I'm really not postive. But I believe the HDX title was 1.78:1. But I could be wrong.

          I do know the OAR is 2.35, but I cannot be certain that it was 2.35 in HDX. It may have been 1.78 in both versions. I also saw it in the theater, but I wouldn't think I would remember it was 2.35, since it is harder to tell there.

          This does bring up an additional question one way or another: why would the studios reformat a title for VOD? For TNT, TBS or UHD I understand, but not for VOD...

            I won't speak for others but I would personally like everything on my TV to be reformatted to 16X9. Otherwise, the picture ends up being too small and you end up losing fine detail since you don't get the full 1080 lines of resolution. I would rather have that extra detail and the larger image than catch whatever is going on at the periphery. So when I end up watching a movie that is 16X9, regardless of what it was originally filmed at, I'm always pleased.
