Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

Weird that the 1st 3 sets will be coming out in two weeks and Funimation hasn't been promoting them at all with trailers and posts on their social media pages. Looks like this gonna be a silent release like the Yu Yu Hakusho steelbooks. It will be a funny meme if they silently put these on selves a...

Re: Question about Funimation's remastering process

One thing to note is that that video makes the Dragon Box look worse than it actually is. It looks like they applied DNR before they even did the comparison shots. Otherwise I guess it's a similar, smudgy look. this is how it looks in Z https://twitter.com/dbaiproject/status/1312731943151243265 Why...

Re: Problem #472 with the Dragon Boxes - DNR

I’m not understanding why the Dragon Box digital masters would exist as a telecine, 3:2 pulldown interlaced, since the target format was always progressive scan DVD. I'm referring to the film scan process as a telecine but in any case back in 2002 or whenever they did the remaster, I'm sure digital...

Re: Problem #472 with the Dragon Boxes - DNR

Reviving this dead thread cause i just want to mention: I'm 99% sure the ghosting isnt a product of DNR rather its caused by the telecine being stored in tape. Hunter x Hunter suffers from the same ghosting in dark scenes and it absolutely received no DNR whatsoever, they just took the broadcast tap...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It says on amazon that it's a limited release steelbook edition, so you'll probably have to wait for a regular release sometime later, again They're going to milk this for all its worth, aren't they ? If it gets a standard release after this hopefully it replaces the 16:9 Blu-rays and that's kind o...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Is there good footage of Dragonball running on 35mm? Because those images are incredible. I always wondered why those images and more looked so incredible in my daizenshuus. Toei shot their promotional shots in 35mm film when dragon ball was being in production. Most of what people are calling cel ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I wouldnt 100% trust toei on a competent remaster tbh. The movies blurays were questionable, with a couple having funimation tier DNR and the dragon quest remaster although with great colours, also has a lot of DNR.

Shout-out to the James Bond-esque Kikuchi tracks that play during the General Blue section, as I love them and they automatically started playing in my head as I wrote this.
Story aside, for me the soundtrack is the highlight of Blue section. Those big band brass Bond songs are amazing!

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The Dragon Boxes most definitely had both DNR and sharpening, but it was applied tastefully. I dont think the dragonboxes had dnr, rather they were hit with the natural bandwidth limitations of the mpeg2 on dvd format. Also kinda unrelated, but i feel as toei may have fucked the colours themselves ...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Man their scanner must be really bad, the color reproduction is atrocious. 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/GDw...

If you scroll down toei's twitter you can find a lot of these shots.

Keep in mind that the first 3 shots come from 35mm film shots of the cels and not a direct cell scan.
Why is the first one 35mm instead of 16?
Thats how toei shot their promo shots. Its easy to spot cause of the very fine grain of 35mm film they use. 16mm film would have been a lot noisier
