Re: Ki Mechanics

I agree that it is vaguely defined, and in regarded to multiplying factors like Kaio-Ken and Super Saiyan that apparently generates more ki from out of nowhere. Outside of that though I think the vagueness actually helps, because it means fights aren't too bogged down by semantics, as well as giving...

Hah. Yes, it's something that trips a lot of people up when dealing with DVD footage or similar.
You just run an IVTC on it, and you're good.
I'll be perfectly honest, this is the first time I've ever heard of an IVTC and I've no idea what it is or if there's a "best one".

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

Welcome back to the forums, Kunzait!

Huh, I never knew that the deinterlacing issues were common. I TOTALLY thought that was just an issue with my Dragon Box; it totally halted my progress on the second pass of The First Chapters because I just COULDN'T figure out how to solve it!

Re: Translation of the scouter alphabet from Dragon Ball Super Broly

That's awesome! I think since it's a translation of something actually in the movie, it kinda transcends being in the Fan section TBH.

Not clicking that ever not knowing what it is. Honestly I think at this point, any YouTube links should be treated as "the original source" to back up other text. For example, "Rekeita said such and such in a new video", the link will be there for sourcing purposes. Alright, let's try this again, t...

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

Problems 1 and 2 could be solved by simply using the Dragon Box as the masters, but even so, I agree that this could risk being taken down. I doubt that'd be an acceptable solution for AnimeMaakuo, he wants to make a great HD remaster of DBZ that's what we've been asking for since Blu-Rays were an ...

Re: Forum Upgraded to phpBB 3.2!

Just bumped into this, but the feature of titling Spoiler boxes doesn't work anymore. It doesn't break the spoiler appearance, it's just that titles don't show up on them even when I include them as part of the BBCode.

There is no proper origin point for the photos, the victims, their testimony, and that of his coworkers and con staff otherwise....

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

How would you work with it being incomplete while still syncing it with the Japanese footage? Also, while I get that high quality releases require high storage, it shouldn't require one whole harddrive You have NO IDEA. Keeping something in true lossless archival quality means Terabytes upon Teraby...

Re: It’s time for fans to come together and remaster the series properly.

I'm not a star wars fan so I don't know about that. I just assume that Toei won't let another company work on their franchise without their OK. In that situation, the footage is generally considered to fine outside of a shot or two, and the issue is that it's more what's in it that's the problem (e...

Yes... It's almost as if Super regularly flanderises characters in nonsensical ways so it can nominally squeeze in tons of characters while not actually depicting those characters, instead just giving us cardboard cutouts that look like those characters to get to our nostalgia, without actually put...

No, Vic's still in the home release. I can't say I expected otherwise, but I wish he'd been replaced, even before the scandal. He just isn't good in that role, at all. I only wish Broly had been recast before the movie came out. I don't remember who said it here, but a good point was made that if h...

Re: What's your most convincing comparison for why grain is important to detail?

I'm not seeing much of difference in the two pictures of Dutch. I definitely see it. For the most obvious difference, open in full resolution and look at his left side of his face where the light is shining on it, or his forehead. In general, the left image makes him look like a wax sculpture or so...
