Thanks, will consider it!
I have 2.7 for anh, 2.0 for empire and 2.5 for rotj
My gripes were that the edition was a generally feeling of fuzziness, if this is what 720p is then so be it, I’ll accept that and go with it, this shot while fine on the surface, when blown up onto my screen through HDMI shows it’s flaws
Here are images that showcase this taken directly from my computer:
So based on what you’ve told me it doesn’t seem like the MKV will actually change any of this,
Update: I actually HAVE noticed some compression blocky artifacts but literally only once and it comes in the form one one jagged line on the floor in dagobah somewhere. My issue overall is just a lack of definition and the grain slightly.
It goes into more detail, also I think that person well meaning as they were, failed to realise that the “blockyness” is just irrelevant to this release
So I recently got all 3 AVCHD of the latest versions for each movie, and the result is… alright, but I’ve been hearing so much talk about how the Harmy’s despecialized edition is basically at the same level as the current Blu Ray in terms of picture quality, and what the AVCHD I’ve got, leaves much to be desired, especially with wide and semi wide shots.
I know from Harmy in a post that the MKV is the highest quality version and the AVCHD is very lossy,
So my current setup is plugging my laptop into the TV which I think further emphasises this.
So does the MKV bring it up to blu ray quality or very close, is it a significant improvement that will fix my gripes with the AVCHD? If it is I will be prepared to set aside many many nights downloading chunks of it and there’s nothing stopping me from doing so, I can absolutely do it. I just want to know if the MKV version will actually solve my gripes.
The way I’m planning to watch is quite far away from the TV, (that’s my setup) with my laptop connected to the TV via HDMI, I haven’t noticed any compression anyway
I did notice when skipping around there’s blocky transitions from the two points I’m skipping which I think is entirely different from the blocks you are talking about, but nothing was blocky when it was just playing, just some level of grain which I assume remains in the MKV? I think both of those images are distinctly different and anyone could notice, even when not zoomed in, and when zoomed in it becomes a lot more apparent.
After taking some snapshots of my AVCHD, there’s grain for sure (not sure if that’s present in MKV) and I think one slightly offset line in one scene but idk if that’s me imagining it. But no blockyness like what was in that image.
I just wondered if the grain level was the same in MKV, that was the thing I was wondering around mainly.
This is about Harmy’s despecialized
I’d say overall I am fine with the AVCHD version I have despite the grain, I just wondered if the MKV is worth getting over it, I actualy don’t want or need all the extra baggage that comes with the MKV version, I’m just wondering if there’s any actual difference in quality of the picture.
Just wondering because the guide said it is better, but is there a difference
