the quality of the final anamorphic film print - yes, HDcam to anamorphic."
Steve:  I am sure your images were received well by those viewing them.  Just
for the record the majority of Episode II of Star Wars was shot just as you
described in your posting.  In the case of Star Wars Episode II just about 810
lines of the 1080 signal were used for the 2.35 to 1 aspect ratio release.

And then even more amazing was the quality of the IMAX blow up that resulted
when these few 810 lines were increased to a IMAX image for the release of Star
Wars Episode II.
