You're speaking as if color grading is just something that's unintelligibly doled out at random.
Pretty much this. There's a massive difference between the depth of the work that goes into a professional colour grade vs the bizarro tints found on these iffy remasters.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

For other shows, something seasonal with top-tier action like Mob Psycho 100 has around 8000 frames per episode on average, with bigger episodes hitting upwards of 15,000. That show consistently produced work that was certainly better looking that just double the frame count would suggest, and that...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

I had a question about the animation and I thought this would be the appropriate thread to ask. In an interview with Tatsuya Nagamine, he said "Typically 3,500 to 4,000 frames are used to make one episode of an anime, but they used about double that for the finale. I was like, “What, double? Whoa!”...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

It's the scan quality rather than the cels, which is why I always recommend ignoring broken photos that you can't fix yourself with basic white balance.

Are those color corrections actually correct because that's how original anime looked like when it aired, well, originally, or because you guys just like it this way more?
Colour correcting is about restoring warped colours back to how they originally looked, yeah.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

This honestly doesn't look anywhere near as bad as people make it out to be. Because the Saiyan arc is crushed to shit, which is the only reason the lines are remotely black. Go a little bit further you and you can enjoy some watery, smeary horse shit. https://i.postimg.cc/14hyxY37/CXRAW-Dragon-Bal...

Re: Fuck Mike

You desperately need to reevaluate your life if you've been stewing over a locked thread for a week, to the point of submitting a silly kamikaze post like this.

The issue was politely explained to you via DMs, your thread's question was answered, and for some reason this is your reaction? Bizarre.

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Ah, very nice. Though, that last one is a reminder that the cel colors were never intended to be the colors. They often used red lines which appear brown or black on film. This isn't true. The red lines you're seeing are just where they've faded over the years due to exposure. They're black origina...

Re: Would Buu Kai be in 4:3 if it didn't air in Japan like originally intended?

When Toei decided to make Kai 1.0, Anime was still being produced and aired in 4:3, so they decided to remaster it in that aspect ratio. When it was time to air Kai, the majority if not all anime moved completely to 16:9, which is why that's how it aired in Japan. When Kai 2.0 was being made, there...

Here are the facts you have still yet to tackle: 1. Toriyama's (minimal) involvement with the anime, and how he's never credited for anything beyond the simple bullet points he gives Toyotaro as well. 2. Toriyama's involvement with Toyotaro vs Toei, how he's went on record stating he lets Toei do w...

Also of course I used the ending credits, that's usually where people who actually worked on the show get credited in-depth.
