just want to hear some opinions on how would one theatrical mix have to be adjusted for the home cinema. need to?
Not talking just about the output volume or overall compression. but also panning.
Listening to 5.1 of GOT, and imagining how those hard panning was heard in the cinema when it was shown in the theatre in the US. in think it was season 4? i haven't had the chance to hear it in the cinema only in my studio.
Or some stuff in the last season of True detective.
There is one shot when the main character is wakening up, his breath is coming form the centre. Hwoever when his hands reach for pack of cigs and are offscreen, foleys are mixed to the right channel. That might sound ok in a home small setup, perhaps nobody even notices that. but in a big screen environment that would be just too obvious. I think that the crew mixing that did this intentionally, but my question is what would happen if perhaps the True Detective (in question) would get the theatrical release (as GOT did). would they remix it? the scene i put as an example is not the sole one.
