Yes, I know…Deculture’s Macross, not Robotech, but I just had to get a dig in at the Protoculture Collection and its lucasizations (which are, thankfully, mild in comparison to the disasters that happened to other series).
I’ve already got 6 episodes edited (my sources currently only cover Macross which is 36 episodes, and not the other 49 eps), though when encoding 6, I found a mistake in the encoding scripts for 3-5 and had to go back and redo them. (Nothing big, just didn’t engage the degrainer correctly. The Macross BluRays are a bit noisy.)
I’ve tended to jinx myself in the past which is why I wanted to make sure I had a significant number of episodes already ready already before I dared to post anything. I’ll prolly be uploading batches to nyaa (where I use the handle sarachikorita) in 720p mp4. I don’t have the means for avchd, so that won’t happen. I may do isos too since this is an upgrade in quality even at 480p.
This is based on the original, 1985, monaural audio mix and the original, 1985, made for syndication TV edit - it does not and will not have the footage which was added in for the Protoculture re-edit. It is not a perfect re-edit, although I did not take as many liberties in the editing as I did with CardCaptors.
A friend of mine did the end credits, but I added the rest of the onscreen text myself.
I did make a new version of the logo that shows off the 720p-ness of it:
I don’t know if it’s the fault of the masters, or my source, but a lot of these episodes are also horribly zoomed in. I am not recreating that.
