    Compared to the garbage quality many of us have watched this material for over 50 years now, I will take some modern "soft image" issues.

    This could be the best that PJ and his team could do with the 57 hours of material! To me I have watched the clip about 5 times now and I have no complaints about the video quality of the material and I do admit I am a 4K/Blu-Ray quality snob! :righton:

    Funny, ironic?, while I am waiting for the new Get Back, I watched Elvis in “That’s the Way It Is” belt out a full version of Get Back, filmed In 1970.

    It would be great to have a 24x7 Get Back channel that plays the full 57 hours of video in a loop continuously.

    Actually a very novel and good idea. Kind of “slow tv” like train cab videos. You can tune in and out ad libitum. Can’t see it happening, but good idea nonetheless.

    Someone call Pluto TV.

    That place they're recording in doesn't look too photogenic. Looks like an abandoned warehouse.

    If you use Plex, there's a great third-party add-on called DizqueTV that lets you make "channels" of local files, including audio-only channels. Requires purchasing a Plex Pass unfortunately, but there are similar freeware services.

    If they shot with normal 400' 16mm loads, it'd be about 11 minutes per magazine. Great camera assistants can switch mags in less than 10 seconds. I think there's much more than 50 hours of coverage on Let It Be.

    Grain reduction is more complex than you make it out to be. Bear in mind that we have the ability to apply NR just to the highlights, just to the mids, or just to the shadow areas, and we also have the ability to apply NR only to one specific color; for example, the blue film layer often winds up the noisiest in camera negative, so we can apply just blue NR and leave most of the detail alone. There are sophisticated non-real-time noise reduction and image enhancement techniques that really do look sharper and yet with less grain than the original, particularly in the case of a 50-year-old negative. Take a look at what Jackson's Park Road Post did on They Shall Not Grow Old, which is a pretty remarkable restoration in a lot of ways. Just stabilizing and pin-registering the negative provides another 10-20% of apparent sharpness.

    Edge sharpening is not something we use so willy-nilly: we have the ability to define what specifically gets sharpened (essentially qualifying a specific light/dark range) and then eliminating what we don't want to get sharpened. It's not necessarily highlight-sharpening, which was the old analog method used in the 1990s and early 2000s. That's been gone for a long time. It's not one knob -- it's potentially a half-dozen knobs. Of course, the key is to use good judgement. My tactic is always "when in doubt, back off a little bit."

    I wouldn't try to judge the new Let It Be until it's actually released. Let's come back to this in August when it's actually out and then we can really examine what the technicians did and what's good/bad/ugly about it. My take is the Park Road guys are very smart and know how far to push things without going too far.

    Screw streaming! Bring on the blu-ray or 4k box set release of all the Get Back footage. Why fart around about it! I plan on seeing the movie in the theater if at all possible but hoping the blu-ray will contain some good stuff as bonus content. I'm guessing if they can then they will probably release more versions of Get Back than Paul's, McCartney III. A smart man would start saving up his pennies for The Beatles onslaught coming at the end of the year. This one Ain't gonna be cheap!

    I have it on good authority that they could easily make a 4-hour version of the movie with no problem. Note that the original film was only 81 minutes (!!!) long.

    It may be simplistic, but things work out the way they are supposed to,I guess.

    I love on YouTube when some videos of "b-roll" filmmaking footage shows up. There are certain movies like Star Wars and Superman where I, and I assume many others, would be fascinated to just watch hours and hours of the stuff, as well as all the alternate takes of scenes. And if a "channel" of that stuff was out there, I'm sure certain tidbits of interest would be found that people would siphon out and post separately.

    Right, It took 4 more years for Lennon to work on a project without Yoko. Mind Games, 1973.

    On the other hand, McCartney would have had 3 platinum selling solo singles, Get Back, Let It Be and the Long And Winding Road and may have also released Maybe I'm Amazed and that's coming off two consecutive platinum singles with the Beatles, Lady Madonna and Hey Jude.
