This was certainly the first Star Wars I saw on anything larger than a 19" CRT, so…yeah 😉
The most complicated merging of two different-resolution sources I’ve done is pasting upsampled and downscaled 576p footage from one source onto 720p from another source (and I call it “punch-out”; I’ve done it with 480/480 too). Probably nothing near as elaborate as what you guys are proposing.
As long as it’s not just like what Toei would do (half-assed Q-TEC upscale of the DVD masters) I’ll prolly be fine with it.
I’d like to see proper 1080p scans of the 1997 trilogy.
Even if they just rescanned it at 1440x1080 and put it out warty, it would suffice me.
They’re not there to blend in, they’re there to intimidate.
Here’s hoping they can be convinced to follow this up with the extended cuts of the others, especially 2. xD
My friend in Portugal grew up with the same cartoons as I did and in English with subtitles, so…yeah 😉
On the leech.
I guess it’s time for the new mob craze “George Revisited First!”
But at least those folks have the GOTSE (George’s Original Trilogy Special Edition).
Wait… No. They’re stuck with the GTROTSE (George’s Thrice Revisited Original Trilogy Special Edition).
George’s Original Altered Trilogy Special Edition…oh wait…
I think they reverted the song and BGM changes and removed some of Phil Hartman’s lines?
It’s just the audio so I doubt it’ll matter, and I can’t say how long I can keep the file up but there’s no reason for me to delete it anytime soon…
PSB had a unique mix that we never knew existed.
I operate under two principles:
- “First do it; then you can go back and do it better.”
- “Perfect is the enemy of good enough.”
All I can say is the audio came from a FOAF, who got it from someone else who got it from someone else (except 2-17, those were one step from the source).
And indeed, those are exactly the sources I used, videowise.
I’m pretty sure I’ve coaxed TMPGE 2.5 to work on 8.1…
I’m hoping someone does 2K scans because I want to try something involving the 2011 masters, 2004 masters, 1997 masters and 1981/1977 masters…
The quality of the show isn’t the relevance to the project, but whether there is a preservation to be done.
Some animation in the more recent years, prior to the HD switch, was done in digital SD, and there is no point to a BluRay release. I believe original Naruto falls into that category.
Those BDs you’re talking about are the epitome of excessive DNR, as well as cropped.
I thought at first that “smh” meant “something missing here”. 😛
I know, right? I did what I felt was right, and while there’s the usual questions and comments, half of it is the greedy clique we had to go through to get the audio, raging because I slaughtered their golden goose. I was well informed what the situation was with the audio going into this - and I was warned that there would be a lot of butthurt, but I wasn’t exactly prepared for what I got. These guys don’t have two brain cells to rub together, even though some of them (like enigmo) definitely have humongous egos.
It’s just Z. There is some broadcast audio of the original Dragon Ball but not enough to make it worth trying to do anything with.
(ETA: That went over like a lead zeppelin. Can’t say I didn’t expect it, as I was warned that exactly that would happen, but still. What is it about the DBZ fandom?)

Well, the Japanese broadcast audio’s out there now. That genie’s been unleashed 😉
That is unfortunately the best I have, I don’t know if we have anything better.
Ardwight Chamberlain did a lot of work on dubs in the 80s and 90s.
I still have the original files (OT), but I don’t know where I’d upload it this time around.
Oy. You never catch a break.
