Hello guys sorry for my bad english but i have lots questions about this subject..
first of all im curious about new movies.director shoot the movie and they go the studio editing then copying over 35mm film.they make the master tape at that time for bluray transfer ? i mean i know master tapes hdcam stores same PQ with blurays..
for the older movies than 3-5 year what they do for master trasnfer? For example last month Wowow japan channel broadcasted indiana jones series.what they used for this? HDCAM ,D5HD,D6HDTV, Cineform ? and which year they transferred it ? why dont they make bluray from hdcam ?
do they need new restoration for bluray release ? cuz i know sky and wowow channels had different masters especially in colors and special effects you could see the difference..
Can you give me some information about this how does it works ?
sorry for my bad english again i know i did lots of grammer errors etc. Thanks

Older films (such as the Indiana Jones series you saw) are usually pulled through a pretty long process.
Those movies are usually scanned in 4 or 8k (depending on the source's resolution). After that, every single frame is "refreshed" (colour correction, dust/clouding removal, etc.) and saved to a numbers of hard disk drives, before they finally transfer the whole remaster to a master tape.
That's how it's usually done, as far as I know.PSN/XBL: BLINX1234
