If you guy’s aren’t too busy could somebody look into fixing the issue with transformers the movie 1986 excerpt from dvdactive.com Chris’ theory is that the image was mastered using PC levels (0=black, 255=white), instead of television levels (16=black, 235=white), which makes sense. I found that I could pretty easily mitigate the problem by sticking the caps in Photoshop and sliding the middle RGB input a tad to the left. Shout Factory had the visual information they needed; something just went wrong during production. The print damage and general wear is a bit more prevalent than expected, considering the extensive remastering, though compression artefacts are minimal, in part because Shout Factory separated the 1.85:1 and 1.33:1 transfers onto separate discs. I actually find the grain and scratches charming, myself – they add character to this plucky movie.
