Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Dnr and frame stabilizing are 2 completely different things. So is removing film splicing marks. I dunno... I think we can make some arguments those two are within the same realm though. Usually we talk about DNR as grain removal. Technically, it is noise reduction... noise relative to a true (ofte...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

So is this release gonna be in 4:3 with a proper remaster? We don't know. Technically we don't even know WHAT the 30th collectible collaboration between Funi and Toei actually is! I thought the only thing that was said was that is was a home video release. I do believe a remaster is possible. Succe...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I wouldn't mind a slight Color corrected release of all the dboxes, and if there is a Blu-ray release I kinda hope there is a DVD counterpart for a bit less I'm actually a bit afraid they just re-release the DBoxes on BluRay. A few other series have done this. That is to say they put the Standard D...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I already have my doubts that this release would in anyway be superior to the Dragon Boxes aside from its resolution, but if one frame of that series is cut or censored that's an instakill for any chances of me purchasing it. Anyone else remember the DragonBox full release having a bonus disc that ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

So, what if Toei's been remastering the TV shows for a decently close simultaneous global release? This is what I'm hoping for... and they are bringing FUNI on board to help split the costs and use their experience in the process at this point. I guess we'll soon find out. However, I'm worried its ...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

All of this is further compounded by how a large amount of anime much less popular than Dragon Ball manage to get quality, affordable home releases just as a matter of course. Don't even get me started! So I'm a Ranma 1/2 fan as well. That series had a messed up DVD release (poor quality, VERY over...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I just hope it's not the censored movies... Aren't these already released in Japan though? I mean, the announcement said: In February, along with Funimation , we’re going to have a 30th anniversary collectible home video release announcement It appears it's a joint release/announcement by the wordi...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

that's why i have had really hard time when i was trying to match cels colors, there are so many differrent colors that it's hard to know which cels are the one that need to be used I thought it had been established that animation cels weren't a good source to color match from. The colors on the de...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Use Vapoursynth man, it's 2018 already, Avisynth is dead. I might try it this weekend then... does it have just as many plugins? The deinterlace filters? I've got a random grain removal script that I like in AVISynth. It would be a total b*tch for me to try and convert it kind of a thing. I like x2...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

These results are really nice if you have some kind of reference.

Here's my shot at the DragonBall DragonBox (no Z)---

Now I'm just looking for a way to get it into AviSynth if possible.

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

I'm a bit late to this newest part of the discussion. I think the color changes for the most part are great . Any chance of applying this to the Dragon Box footage though instead of Kai? (Note: I have not fooled around with the newer software mentioned) if you get the needed references yes but to b...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

A s we can see, the Blu-ray version has line detail that the Dragon Boxes simply don't have the resolution to display . This isn't about dark details or color depth. It's just about details in the image. If the 1st generation film masters downscaled to 480p looks like the Dragon Boxes, then Funimat...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

... and Funi did in fact use that for their BDs(I'm still convinced it's an upscale of some sort) An upscale of sorts? An upscale of what? the Orange Bricks? The DBoxes? There is more detail in the BluRays than even in some of the Dragon Box episodes. THis is especially apparent when you look at th...

Encoding entire episodes and sharing those episodes with others is basically some version of piracy unless we can maintain all parties involved act...

Those are great! Is there a way to fix these for the DVD or do I have to rip the episodes? Correct me if I'm wrong but I can't think of a way it could be done without copying the episodes to a hard disk. I want to think that there was a version of some video player that actually did let you run a s...

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Kai is the closest in terms of color accuracy but there are still cases where it's a bit off. The sky color in the Goku vs Vegeta fight being too green is a good example . The quality and consistency of Kai's color correction also varies between the Saiyan, Freeza, and Cell arcs. Pretty common misc...
