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.
I see part of Videl’s head from DBZ? 😉
…man, if any anime series needs a proper restoration, it’s DBZ. >_< I wonder how much of it survives on 16mm outside of Toei and Funi’s vaults.
So do I. 😉
Sounds like someone on Failbook needs to be plonked.
Hey, it’s something.
Honestly it’s a little shocking that there aren’t a lot more 97 film prints to scan.
I know, right?
Despecialization would be easier with all versions in true HD, and AFAICT, the 97 SE is the only one where we don’t have at least some sort of HD version.
I have autism myself, and I don’t think that supposedly also having it justifies a certain someone acting like an ass with just about every one of his posts.
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.
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.
I’m sure there’s better now than what I did years ago…
I can’t imagine the files will last very long where they’re at before someone gets C&D’d into oblivion. Downloaded for safekeeping.
To be honest, I have a theory that George Lucas no longer remembers his own original intent. It helps to explain why after 1997, high quality official versions of the theatrical versions was NOT an option in any way, shape or form.
That would not one lick surprise me.
“Stomachache” Records, eh?
Well, in the early days there did exist computers that used 6, 7, 9 bit bytes until the 8-bit byte, 16-bit word, 32-bit double word became the norm (though I think the size of word and double word still vary).
I call them “real units” or “binary units” and “salesman’s units”.
