Contribution DiscussionNew posts in this threadPan & Scan vs. Open Matte
@Lithurge:
I know the difference between P&S and open matte. But when I profile a movie that was shot widescreen but was released fullscreen, I can seldom tell if it was created by P&S or open matte.

Nowadays films are rarely released in fullscreen if they were shot widescreen, but for older DVD released this is a problem. Knowing that a release is not in the original aspect ratio is important, but open matte is less serious than P&S.

Thank you for your detailed explanation and examples, much appreciated.

As a further example, how would you tackle the DVD and Blu-ray releases of "Yankee Doodle Dandy" from Warner Bros. (released on DVD in 2003 and Blu-ray in 2014).

Both releases had the same 45 minute documentary "Let Freedom Sing!: The Story of Yankee Doodle Dandy" included (made in 2003), with the DVD listing it as a featurette and the Blu-ray listing it as a Bonus Feature film.

Based on your guidelines, I'm thinking the Blu-ray should list the documentary as a featurette?
