        I will watch a colored version of Casa Blanca, not only that, but it will have color pallet that Wes Anderson movies use on his movie. You can't stop me. All done by AI. Also, it will be widescreen.

        The picture makes a good point that the conversion might "look" better for media, but might destroy the composition the director wanted.

        For instance

        That's one frame, it could pan down to the pothole while George is still pointing at it.

        says to have it pan down but it changes the scene. However the scene also doesn't work in widescreen and "zooming out" just adds a bunch of extra space in noise.

        If you guys want a good movie to watch that really makes you enjoy square footage (and actually uses it rather than as a limitation), "The Lighthouse" is quite nice. Wide screen would have killed the vibe

        The correct solution would be to use the 4:3 version and use AI to autofill the rest of scene. My guess is that this is probably not economically viable yet, because because the AI is not that good do most of the work on its own and not screw up, so you would to have to adjust a lot shit..

        Anyway, sure, it will never look as good as if it had been shot originally on 16:9, because the scenes weren't planned like that, but it will be way better than seeing black bars.

        Someone did this on few scenes as a proof of work:

    Cropping is actually the correct solution. Since widescreen is not actually wide, but rather just less tall. Had that episode actually been made in widescreen, it would be framed like the cropped version.

            I wish all movies were released like the DVDs of the 90s Ninja Turtles movies were. They let you choose which version you want. The open matte, or the theatrical widescreen version.

            A lot of times the old full screen version is framed better. Liar Liar is an example. I'd rather watch my VHS tape of it than my DVD of it because of how cramped everything feels on the widescreen version.

              in the past at least they had 4:3 in consideration and that may be the reason why things are framed better. nowadays is all wide screen. but even with that they still use ultra wide sometimes. is a director's thing

              90% of the time you can crop out those things while having more of the frame than both widecreen and 4:3 presentations

              composition is important. there are shots that are completely ruined when shown in another way. not many movies are worth keeping the composition tho.

              anyway at some point you need to stop.

    The only times it's acceptable to make a widescreen version of a 4:3 show are if it was shot in widescreen but cropped for broadcast (like That '70s Show) or it's computer animated and they go back to the source files and re-render it in widescreen (like South Park).

    Fortunately black bars aren't that annoying when you have a screen with perfect blacks like OLED.
    Can't even see the edges of my screen at night with the lights off.
