Rock in rio 91 in HD

Recommended Posts

If by HD you mean "unnecessary stretched ratio", you can find that on YouTube. The best quality possible is available by downloading the less-than-4GB DVD and using your computer's video card to enhance the image quality.

You know HD... wasn't... well it didn't really exist in 1991... right?

It certainly did not. But the resolution of film is more than enough to get a 1080p transfer out of. If I recall, the 70mm film that Spartacus is shot on could give you a 2160p (4k) transfer. So anything shot on film in any time, ever, can benefit from an HD transfer. So if this person got ahold of the film that RIRII was shot on, yes, there could be an HD version. What is more likely, is that someone just upconverted the resolution of a 480i signal on their computer and uploaded it to youtube.

Oh I know, it's been done to TV shows like Friends and I'd love to see any/all proshot Guns concerts remastered. It wouldn't be 2014 quality but it would be awesome still. Sadly no-one bothers..

It would be 2014 quality. No one bothers because the only person that would have the film capable of a transfer would be Axl

Unless camera technology hasn't advanced in 25 years I don't see how it would be..

It isn't the camera, it's the film. And that doesn't matter. Like I said, spartacus could give you a 4k master and that was shot in the 60's, Indiana Jones is one of the best looking movies on Blu ray, and it was shot in 89. As long as you have film, (35mm) you have stock for a 1080p transfer.

But it still wouldn't be 2014 quality, it wouldn't be AFD 1080p quality. It would technically be 1080p in resolution though, yes.

What do you even mean by 2014 quality. Digital? Like I said, movies shot on film are ALREADY IN 1080p, they just have to be transferred properly. So if this was shot on FILM, it would in fact be whatever you mean by 2014 quality.

I think Rio 1991 was videotaped, therefore we can say goodbye to a 1080p transfer. Same with all the remaining UYI gigs.

I think this is the best available on the internet:

Nope, the original DVD transfer has got a better quality

Where can I find it?

One of the cameramen from Rio saved the physical tape from the camera he was manning and transferred it - probably the best quality you'll see from the event:

I've been looking for footage of them playing Bad Apples at this gig, is it right there's none? Does it even exist, or just audio? Even the audio has that annoying host interrupting

No, there's no footage of that, the tv broadcast stopped after Civil War. Globo TV may still have the footage, but they won't likely liberate it. The only audio source that exists is from the fm broadcast (the one with the host talking)

In reallity we have 2 cameraman tapes, the Slash's cam [authored as UncleT, It also has soundboard auudio, but it wasn't properly recorded, so it is a bit clipped] and Axl's cam [authored by Limulus, it has the audio from the camera's mic, unfortunately, it was next to the bass monitor, so you can barely hear anything, but it also contains the tv broadcast audio]. Unfortunately, both of them are incomplete (wonder why).

if it was shot on film and not videotape someone would have to rescan the original print to get HD 

in other words what we got is likely all we'll get

Is this coming up as an issue again? If it's a direct tape transfer, you will get 240p. That's the maximum possible for the technology. If it was filmed (unlikely) THEN you could get a 720, maybe 1080 transfer (you probably won't).

Incorrect - VHS resolution if 240p, but standard definition videotape is 480p

The Slash cam footage above was from the 480p master

From an vhs you can get 480p, from a film you can get something nearly as high as 4k (That's the reason why until 2005 more or less most of the films were recorded on film tape)
