    Edge #323 25th Anniversary Edition

    I'd start looking here. https://goo.gl/maps/XhPNUNj9vrS2
  2. Your TV is quite old and doesn't seem to support overscan.

    Your 4K Gaming TV Experiences & Thoughts

    Panasonic presumably have some corporate tie-in with Deluxe's stable of VFX houses. I've not worked with those places in years. From that article: Unmitigated nonsense, ironically that sort of guff is the very first thing engineers will turn off when calibrating for VFX houses. The article's a dreadful puff piece.

    Don't know any graders who use anything but Grade 1 broadcast monitors as their primary. For client monitors by far the most ubiquitous is the LG B7/8. Never seen a Panasonic OLED in a post/VFX studio, not saying they're not used but I don't know why you'd pay the extra when you're just going to calibrate it and turn off all the additional 'tech' that it comes bundled with, most of which is nonsense.

    Xbox One X

    So when I boot my Xbox and press right once it lets me know how many gamerpoints you're ahead of me, Pob. I don't know why it's nearly always you, Pob, or why Microsoft feel that this is information I need one right click away from my start position. Buy and install a game and I have to go hunting for it in my game library, which, depending on how my Library is sorted could take several clicks. Need to know how many gamerpoints Pob is ahead of me - that's right at the heart of the OS - as it should be really. My only hope is that next gen there's a dedicated controller button to find out how many gamerpoints Pob is ahead of me by.

    Sharp Objects

    There's only 8 episodes apparently. Not sure I'd describe Amy Adams character as the narrator, she's the principal and the story is mostly told from her perspective but there's no narration as such.

    Sharp Objects

    New series featuring Amy Adams who plays a journalist going back to her home town to investigate a murder. Beautifully shot, edited and acted. Stands head and shoulders above any other series I've watched in a while. Been watching it on HBO but believe Sky Atlantic have it too.

    4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    That source is wrong. DI for 35mm film is invariably always 2K. 70mm is 4K. Of course you can scan film at whatever resolution you want but that doesn't mean you're resolving any more useful information. There's a whole industry that's sprung up scanning 35mm masters at 4K so of course they're going to state it's a meaningful endeavour but in reality it's nonsense. In fact some early films were only scanned at 720p, I can remember DI engineers arguing that was a more natural fit for 35mm over 2K. That may have been an overstatement but there sure as hell isn't 4K of information there. It's certainly true that good digital cameras shoot much cleaner 2K than 35mm film cameras.

    4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    Not really, no. 2K is pretty much the absolute limit for resolving meaningful detail out of 35mm film. HDR can be extracted from film though, although there's no technical reason it has to be 4K too.

    The iOS gaming thread

    The disasters barely effect you and, as you mention, you can reduce their effects massively after not too much progress. The game's too generous as it is - would be a shame to turn off the only vague challenge you encounter.

    4K Blu Ray - anyone collecting?

    Other than a few effects plates the majority of the film was shot on 35mm so 4K doesn't resolve any more detail than a regular blu ray. Than again that holds true for every film mentioned on this page. The HDR is nicely implemented though.

    Ha, of course Panasonic do. An eccentric inclusion and please god tell me not the default setting.

    That's not what happens. 4K TV's upscale 1080p signals using a small variety of interpolation algorithms - generally something sinc based, bilinear at the very least. Never heard of a 4K TV that that just pixel doubles.

    Photography Equipment & Software Thread

    So the last time I tried CC it didn't have tone curves which rendered it pretty pointless. A quick search suggests they've added curves recently so I might give it another go.
