Re: Level 1.1 back...in stock?

On the title cards sure.

But @Robo4900 seems to think there was some additional noise added to the picture following the DNR pass. This isn't true, the grain structure in the Level sets is from the film itself - not added in post like the 30th Anniversary set.

Re: Level 1.1 back...in stock?

Sorry what do you mean by fake grain? The level sets certainly have dupe grain as they’re multigenerational copies but they only applied a light DNR process. They didn’t re-add any grain or noise after the dust, fix and noise pass.

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

It's a shame the broadcast audio has all of this associated drama with it because I love that I've been able to remux my R2s with the superior audio.

If that's as good as DBZ gets I can live with it.

Re: Dragonball GT original credit scroll

Of course, the show was only animated at 24fps Correction: not really! It was PRESENTED in 24fps, but a lot of the time the actual drawn animation was 12fps because that's cheaper and faster. Unless something was really fast, or it was a showcase shot like the final shot of Goku in GT with his big ...

Re: State of the Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z Broadcast Audio?

Honestly it’s great that it’s out there. There’s even a recent release (that I believe a member of this forum was involved with) that times the tracks for the R2J Dragon Box Z and provides both an audio and video sync. It’s sad that fans have to go the extra mile but I’ve got my remuxed Dbox episode...

Re: Regarding the releases of the original "Dragon Ball" TV adaptation - particularly the "Dragon Box"?

The Dragon Ball Dragon Box release is similar, if slightly inferior to the Dragon Box Z release. The image quality as you would expect due to the age of the masters involved is slightly worse and there are some pretty bad frame alignment issues in some episodes (during the RR arc). Overall it is muc...

Re: Is admitting to have watched and liked Super like admitting to have done something 'naughty'?

Wait what?

So your question is that does admitting to watching Dragon Ball Super have the same social stigma as admitting to watching pornography as a minor?

I'd like to congratulate you on your novel premise, it's a new one for sure.

Re: What I think is missing in the Heroes anime

It's a commercial.

I think we should be thankful for the few tiny snippets of decent animation that are buried in there with all of the trash.

It's going to unfair regardless because TOEI has better physical masters then FUNimation ever will (hence their DNRing comes off cleaner because their's has no baked-in grain from multi-generational scanning.

Gotta say I feel the same. I hear a lot that Dragon Boxes look terrible on a 50+" TV, but Christ I'd pull my hair out looking at this version of the show. They don't - at least the original R2 releases look fantastic on my 55" 4K Sony Bravia. I don't doubt the lower bit-rates on the R1s cause them ...

Am I the only one who's almost never gotten these black bars people speak of? My blue bricks fill the screen just like all the other DB DVDs.
