It might be that the PAL ones are playing at NTSC speed (common for TV shows), in which case the Avisynth command qtgmc(“fast”).srestore(23.976) can usually IVTC that.

ROBOTECH: The Deculture Collection

Not really either. I haven’t gone back to it because I’ve got a ton of other projects, but I don’t want to call it dead either. But you might as well consider it dead, since I probably won’t be going back to it anytime soon. 😦

I am hoping to return to it eventually.

So happy you said this. It’s infuriating to read the tweets of my high school peers. It’s just a blob of thoughts with zero puncation and awful grammar.

Sounds like comparing the Failbook comments of my first two exes. The first writes in complete, coherent and mostly correctly spelled sentences, while the second writes all in lowercase, with tons of mistakes, and is a pain in the neck to read.

(The first also turns out to be a much nicer person, given the other subjected me to gaslighting some time ago. Sorry about the OT, had to rant.)

I’ve always wondered. Does anyone know why bluray/official releases always seem to have such a flat tone to the image - as if to mimic the monotone digital grading of recent Hollywood movies?

You just answered your own question.

Those names are not familiar. Someone linked me a Mega folder, but the vast majority of his rips were the exact same as I had, which I downloaded in 2011.

The three episodes I did were from the best cap source available at the time, one that had somewhat flickery colors, but was complete and slightly undercut, from Toonami UK.

Oh, that’s strange. Last time I talked to Arien he seemed to believe you were a friend of Clutchins going by the name of usotsuki over on Kametsu, guess he was mistaken.

He wasn’t mistaken.

Yes, I also have the TVrips you’re referring to. Most of those were collected on the now closed Cartoon World forum from back in the day. However, since around 2014 Dismantles revealed on Kametsu that he’s gotten possession of a bunch of YTV recordings. I’ve talked to Arien about this (who’s a friend of his) and he’s told me that the tapes feature high quality audio of all the Ocean and Blue Water dubbed episodes that aired in Canada, so for DBZ that would start off somewhere around the Cell Games saga when Gohan transforms and continue until the end of the series. The Trunks/Android & Early Cell saga episodes only aired in the UK and Netherlands so they’re unfortunately not available in the same quality.

I’m aware Canada switched to this dub later.

That being said, last three Toonami links I posted were taken from DVD recordings by a person in the UK called Robo4900. Arien recently made a trade with him in order to acquire recordings of DBZ episodes 115-120 + 192 as well as GT episodes 52-56 + 64. This was a great find, especially for the Android saga episodes which weren’t apart of the YTV recordings.

I’ve been in contact with him over on Rizon. We exchanged a few rips.

Dismantles and Arien have talked about doing a remaster similar to yours (using FUNi singles as a video source for authenticity) and have expressed interest in getting help with that. It does appear that it’s taking Dismantles a very long time to digitize the tapes though so no word yet on when the audio will be made available.

I used the Dragon Box with color correction because it’s higher quality, but still used the Funi singles to provide title cards - because while authenticity is important to me, I’d rather work from a higher quality source.

With all these new sources a new remaster is bound to happen, it’s just a matter of when.
