PAL LD - Bicubic Vs NTSC LD - Bicubic:
PAL LD - Bicubic Vs LD MagicSR:
NTSC LD - Bicubic Vs LD MagicSR:
I can't believe how much MagicSR improves the image quality; even so, it is still inferior to a simple bicubic resize of the GKar (maybe the worst of the 97 DVB recordings):
LD MagicSR Vs GKar Bicubic:
I must admit I used two small clips captured few years ago; now, taking several captures from different editions (4x PAL, 2x NTSC) and averaging them to wipe out noise, using a better capture card - if only I'll be able to let it work again... - and a REALLY better NTSC laserdisc player, or, even better, using Happycube method, I think image could be improved a lot - it *could* be really *probable* that result could be even better than DVB...
take a look at the following comparison; if you see aliasing in both, it's due to the enhancing filter, but if you see only (or more) aliasing only in the regraded version, it will be a fault of the regrading filter
