Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

this one has original colors Is it your scan? How do you know it's accurate? I have seen so many poor scans online (like 99% of the time) throughout my research of getting accurate scan. People either scanned them with some cheap ass scanners that produced wrong color, or they didn't know how to ca...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Considering they have to convert the negative colours into positive, i think thats just toei being incompetent at colors as usual why do you think these look different? https://i.imgur.com/H4mBwIn.png https://i.imgur.com/GDwqQGZ.jpg One is from Toei's website the other is from twitter I think they ...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

If you scroll down toei's twitter you can find a lot of these shots. It gives you a pretty good idea of what the show might have looked if it was shot on 35mm https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Eak-vXmUEAAzBBJ?format=jpg&name=4096x4096 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EX7IYKvUYAAIQYE?format=jpg&name=4096x4096 ...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Dang. The process of photography somehow adds a lot of depth to those otherwise flat looking cels. I got that seem feeling too. Maybe it's the background? The colors? Or maybe just that we aren't used to seeing these particular frames of animation in such clarity and quality that's throwing us off?...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Where are these coming from? How do you know they are accurate scan? I'm not sure, but I think they are accurate The problem is that it seems that Toei tried to make a color correction of some of them to make them look better https://i.imgur.com/H4mBwIn.png https://i.imgur.com/GDwqQGZ.jpg https://i...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Sharing my new findings on color sources. I have been looking for Dragon Ball cel for the past month, however I think I'm 15 years late to this because the price is beyond ridiculous now. Any random cel costed at least $200 and any cel with Goku easily exceeded $1,000. I did grab a few 30 cels from...

Whoa. That looks a helluva lot better than a standard sharpening filter. What did you do?! Is a software called Topaz Gigapixel that uses artificial intelligence to improve the image.

Re: Toei's Dragon Ball Kai remaster

The majority of Dragon Ball Z was shot on 16mm film compared to the more standard 35mm. QTEC who remastered the series applied some fairly liberal DNR to the footage, which when combined with the already smaller format 16mm film resulted in pretty soft overall image quality. However, there were a f...
