I tried slamming in a shot from Episode 86: The Last Wish into a program called "Topaz Gigapixel." [snip]
That's the best upscale of anything I've ever seen.

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

The problems with the hues in these images were that there weren't many different ones and I had to map 357° -> 14°, so I had to rotate the hues first. I noticed the same thing after the fact. Also, it seemed to work "well enough" for that single frame... but in the very next scene, Piccolo's face ...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

The tools I'm using, if anyone's interested: https://github.com/crabshank/HLSL-Reshade-colour-remappers Did you code these tools? I tried playing around with around with histogram and histogram neuralnet pages. I just ask because I'm having a few issues with it and might want to help with a little ...

https://i.imgur.com/p2jqlFa.jpg In the bottom right corner, COLOR of XEROX LINE. RGB [15,13,15] . That's as accurate of a reference point for anything as you'd get for something like this. Question is... what's the XEROX LINE? Either way, I'm guessing that blackbox in the bottom right is supposed t...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Can't wait until the comparisons start rolling in. I live for screenshot comparisons of DB home releases. Me too, I have no interest in this release but you had better believe I'll pore over the comparison images for hours. Oh you can bet i'll be browsing through them as well, because the quality c...

That spirit bomb Goku is smudgy as hell and I hate it.
A lot of those images are very blocky (I'm guessing from YouTube compression).

However, I don't have confidence that "smudgy" will be fixed somehow in the actual release.

Re: Backing Up Dragon Ball DVDs and Blu-rays 2.0

Very interesting info there, that's definitely good to have for that particular program though i don't personally use it. Just to be clear, most of that info applies to the DVD format... not strictly to DVDDecrypter. Other programs that allow you to access the VOB files properly can probably access...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

In general there are very few examples of a long running weekly anime series from the pre digital era that have been remastered for blu ray in Japan. Seasonal shows like gundam have been remastered but nothing of the hundreds of episodes variety. The only ones I can think of are yu yu hakusho and R...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Funimation deserve all the hate, come on now. They pushed out the Orange Bricks and have been shitting out awful home releases since; this was their chance to at least somewhat make up for that, and they cocked that up as well. I've said before and I'll say it again: they need their distribution ri...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It seems like someone at Toei really likes green. A bit off topic for the thread, but is the green tint a constant? By this I mean, would we easily color correct it like in the DBox Color Correction thread? I don't want to play around with it scene by scene, but if it's a constant green, one filter...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Guess it's time to just start collecting the single dvds as at least those are proper 4:3. Luckily they are pretty cheap nowadays. All episodes weren't released in 4:3 with the singles. It's the "Rock the Dragon" set edits. They never finished the Vegeta vs Goku battle. That's when they released th...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Ajay made a very good follow-up video! https://youtu.be/6QZDHVwpHZo He is spot on correct. If the set releases in November, there is plenty of time to have adjustments made. It seems like most people want the colors untouched and their version of DNR to be gone. If people make enough noise, there i...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Yeah but, based on what we've seen today, most images outside of episode 1 tend to not be as zoomed. Their blog post said they're trying to cut out as little as possible. Maybe something went wrong with episode 1 and they'll go back. Hopefully. Maybe. I'm willing to bet money the zooming issues are...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I couldn't find the exact frame, but this should be close enough to compare to the Widescreen release. I've always hated the line definition on the previous bluray releases on these exact scenes . It looks like this might be a tad better. I'm with the rest of you though. Just give us those raw image...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

What a waste of potential. I can't stand the smearing they do trying to clean up the image. Someone can post some Cell Games picks from the BluRays and the DBoxes. They completely blur the lines. It's horrible!

No order from me.
