1st Screen


Bumper: Just the same modified screen used on Trifecta/Universal/DreamWorks/Paramount home video and television releases.

FX/SFX: Same as the Paramount modified screen.

Music/Sounds: Same as the Paramount modified screen.

Availability: Rare. It can be seen on the 1995 VHS of The Pagemaster and full-screen DVDs of Cast Away (also seen on the VHS), The Sound of Music, and Digimon: The Movie.

Scare Factor: Same as the Paramount modified screen.

2nd Screen

(1994-2006, 2006-present on some DVDs)

Bumper: We see the words "The following film has been modified from its original version. It has been formatted to fit this screen" on a black background.

Variant: On BET's print of The Five Heartbeats, the text reads "...formatted to fit this screen and edited for content."

Trivia: The 1998 pan-and-scan VHS/Laserdisc of Titanic, the 2003 VHS of Finding Nemo and Shanghai Knights use this screen instead of their usual Paramount & Buena Vista modified screens.

FX/SFX: Just the simple fade in and fade out. DVDs that are in the full-screen format use this format screen without the fade in and fade out, except for the full-screen DVD of Independence Day.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: On all Fox releases during the era (mostly VHS) including Ice Age, Baby's Day Out and Home Alone 3, as well as on the 2003 VHS release of Finding Nemo and Shanghai Knights (plastered by the Buena Vista Home Entertainment 2000-2006 Modified Screen) and the pan-and-scan VHS/Laserdisc of Titanic. Also on some full-screen DVDs of the era (without the fade in and fade out).

Scare Factor: None.
