Re: Things that grind your gears

The fact we don't have a uniform 4:3 Kenji Yamamoto Dragon Soul Kai. It's possible to make a fan version with Funi's new 30th set but I doubt anyone would do the color grading. Also, there aren't enough Kenji Yamamoto tracks, maybe someone can create Kai style covers based on tracks from other movie...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

If anyone's interested, Enigmo put a section of this set through some filters. I found the results surprising good.

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"???

How do the 35mm episodes look? I'm really finding it hard to just buy the season blurays
Like 16mm. There isn't a difference in quality. Funimation didn't get 35mm film masters.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I honestly don't trust Toei to release something better, to be completely honest. I don't trust them to release anything at all. If they did, I'd expect censorship (goodbye middle fingers), but that's a small thing. I didn't spend any time with their movie Blu-rays since I got them, but isn't Toei ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I'll be frank, these don't look bad at all. A little poorer than Kai in terms of detail, oversaturated colors (something that can be fixed), and smeary backgrounds, but nothing experience breaking. I dare say it, I like what I see.

I found on Twitter another scene (not the one with Porunga) where they used that soundtrack from Movie 12.

Re: (Project idea) Dragon Ball Z Kai Upscale

So I looked at one of the links above from framecompare, and I must say this of the #3 Kai 1080p Upscale DNR version. It looks nice, but somewhat off. A tad into uncanny valley. First off, I'm glad you enjoyed the screenshot! Next, I made a mistake when labeling those screenshots, that's actually t...

Re: (Project idea) Dragon Ball Z Kai Upscale

If you don't want people looking closely at a show, why are you trying to increase the resolution? You could just say "sit further back from your monitor" to anyone that thinks normal Kai is too blurry, as well. It's also really easy to see how your upscale has smeared things, I'm on my phone right...

Re: (Project idea) Dragon Ball Z Kai Upscale

You could deflect literally any criticism with that. You asked if people were interested, people said your examples don't look very good. He was comparing those upscaled images to the Shitty Funimation releases, it wasn't a criticism, it was an insult. He's literally blowing up 4k images into small...

Re: (Project idea) Dragon Ball Z Kai Upscale

This is AI upscaling that predicts where detail would actually be. https://topazlabs.com/gigapixel-ai/ Can't that lead to weird outcomes? It doesn't just lead to weird outcomes, at the moment it's utterly shit for traditional animation. It either heavily distorts the picture, or gives a Season BD-l...

Re: (Project idea) Dragon Ball Z Kai Upscale

Can't that lead to weird outcomes? Occasionally, it varies from shot to shot. Usually, that can be solved with heavy DNR, nothing that compromises the original image, it only affects the improved "detail". For example, upscaling at 720p actually produces a better and cleaner image sometimes because...

You can never get more detail than the original source. I don't see any reason to upscale.

Re: (Project idea) Dragon Ball Z Kai Upscale

Probably a dumb question but I assume you'd also be color correcting the DBox inserts you're using for the reanimated stuff, yes? No. I haven't sorted that out yet. My idea was to somehow get Enigmo onboard. While his corrections are full of artifacts, they are accurate and impressive. The issue ca...

Re: (Project idea) Dragon Ball Z Kai Upscale

How intensive would the upscaling work be? Like if I were to volunteer would I just take some footage, put in some settings, and let a program run? Intensive, especially on your computer. You need to break each video into frames, then run each frame through the program. You can cue subsequent image...

(Project idea) Dragon Ball Z Kai Upscale

Dragon Ball Z Kai looks beautiful upscaled, it's a very good approximation of what the cels look like. Theoretically, you could upscale the entire series, but the amount of time and manpower needed is simply too much for one person. So here's the idea, a team of 5~6 would work on upscaling the entir...
