Freddie Mercury / Never Boring / Menu 1" link
This is a recent upload on the Freddie Mercury channel that's in 4K....
The Made In Heaven and The Great Pretender videos above are also 4K. The highest quality of the Ku Club Ibiza Barcelona video is showing at 1440p.
Perhaps we ought to have a look at them via a decent source (BluRay will do it) on a decent set-up or a decent HD TV rather than on the internet..
If it's uploaded in 4k to YouTube and you have a 4k display, that'll work just as well as watching it directly on Blu-ray.
Even if you don't have a 4K display, 1080p will look better than 480p DVD quality.
Someone uploaded a video of Barcelona from Ibiza comparing the Never boring footage to the Barcelona old footage and the comments speak for themselve. Although new angles made it fresh the colors are dreadful. Too much brightness and contrast at the never boring release. Wow they really fucked it up . Pal to NTSC or?? link
Blu ray is 1080p NTSC 23.976 fps. Some bits of videos are in SD, I suppose they couldn't find the rushes for the particular shots. Colour grading inconsistencies between the shots. Someone didn't do their job very well. Pretty shocked at how bad the SD videos on Never Boring look. Particularly the LOMO remix video. But that's just filler content anyway.
Well, it has to be emphasized that they totally and really well re-created the visual effects in the videos. Made In Heaven and the moment of encounter between Creator / Freddie and Devil / The girl is a prime example here!
