Re: Upscaling/remastering methods

waifu2x is great algortihm for upscaling anime screenshots and arts, although i don't know if there is any version of this algorithm for videos: http://waifu2x.udp.jp/ It's TERRIBLE for any kind of analogue medium. Digital stuff, it's not too bad, but any kind of film-based media, such as Dragon Ba...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

this is the full frame I'm working off of . Holy crap, that's almost nauseating. How can a single soul on this earth look at that and say "yeah this set looks fine, people are just nitpicking"??? It's out of focus... it's literally out of focus!! The frame wasn't anything like that in the raw, I gu...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

Which ties into my point about the second part of the arc being rushed. The ideas were all very good, sadly they were executed in a questionable way. 6 episodes to wrap up such a major arc were not enough, really. It's kind of ridiculous that they tried to lump so many important fights in episode 6...

Re: Would Level Sets be more sucessfull if Funimation wait more?

the Dragon Ball fandom has an ability like no other to just roll over and take this shit, even when a better alternative is dangled right in front of our faces, on a blog post explaining why Funi chose to, yet again, do an unbelievably shitty release of our favourite show, so... They accept and ado...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

Short Answer: Yes. Slightly longer: Still yes, but I feel like it it could have been handled much better. First it should have started after the Freeza arc. From the Champa arc on I feel like it averaged out to "pretty good". Also, Toei should have been smart enough to realize that Dragon Ball is s...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

No, I am not. Aside from Zamasu, who genuinely represents something new Dragon Ball has never had (a main antagonist whose motives stem from ideology), this new material from what I've read about it has been creatively impotent for the most part and doesn't sound like it would be worth the time inv...

Don't know how long ago this was, but Lee Tockar changed his Twitter banner to a picture of Freeza and added Freeza in DBK to his bio. Could maybe be a sign?
That happened ages ago.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

In case anyone was sceptical of my claims that the 30th anniversary set is only standard-def in terms of actual detail in the picture. In fact, fine detail like the blood on Gohan's face actually is significantly clearer and more distinct on Dragon Box... And look at how the linework of the top of ...

Your willingness to help wouldn't really help them anyway since you're not Canadian. XD I suppose. Just hope the channel ...

Re: Original Dragon Ball anime to be released on Blu Ray in Spain

That material is upscale, surely using IA o neuronal nets like needi filter. The audio, except valencian, not is for one version bluray for his quality. Not is best release but yes better at the moment. Sorry to be crass, but LOL. There is NO WAY this is AI/neural net. This'll just be a basic, stan...

More successful? Yes, definitely, obviously. In 2011, Kai wasn't even finished releasing, the Dragon Boxes were just a couple of years ago, the bricks were just a couple of years before that... It was about the stupidest time Funi could have done it. Here's how they should have done it: No Dragon Bo...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The main point is that while this set looks above serviceable Except it doesn't. If you have absolutely zero idea about anything to do with proper presentation of video, this will probably not look too bad. That's not a good thing, though. And, remember, THIS IS A COLLECTORS' SET . It cost $350, th...

Listen to the people who say they own it and have spent more than 30 minutes watching it.

Re: The image of the Dragon Ball Z Anime restored with the 16mm Masters?

Toei Animation no longer has the video masters of the episodes of the series? Did they do the same as the cels? You misunderstand. Toei still has the original film masters. But the copies of those masters, which were sent to TV stations and the like, were either destroyed or made their way into the...

Re: The image of the Dragon Ball Z Anime restored with the 16mm Masters?

There is no project. That tweet just took an image Kei17 posted in another thread and posted it sans context. Apparently a collector in Japan owns an original print of an episode, and shared this image with Kei. As Kei states in that thread, not all episodes are in collectors' hands. In fact, it's l...

Re: Do you have this image in a better quality? Remastered or redesigned?

Cool. I wonder if there's film reels available for many episodes. How come there's even some available? I think all the original prints given to TV stations were sold off at some point, so between the various collectors, every episode of DB and Z should have at least one private owner. No, they wer...
