>>117373049 Pretty much this. Well-preserved film makes the transfer to higher definition better than digitally mastered anime from the early 2000s, before HD was really a thing. >>117373167 A lot of older anime had absolutely shit DVD transfers. That's why "remastering" became a thing. When companies that cared about their more successful products would go back and rescan the film itself for the DVD instead of transferring from a Betamax tape like a lot did. Take Lodoss for example. This is from the old US Manga Corps DVD. It looks like shit.
>>117372908 It's probably the quality difference over the years. Newer stuff is made for HD now, so it's how you see it originally, whereas older stuff you watched on VHS or DVD and seeing it on BluRay is much more satisfying.
I agree though, as long as it's not DNR'd to hell and back. I love seeing the brush strokes and details on a good BD master of an older anime.
>>117378391 I'm currently watching the rips a guy on /m/ did. They look really, really good. The OP animation has a lot of digital noise removal going on, but the actual episodes themselves have very little.
>>117378763 Yeah EG/RX782 is pretty fucking based (too bad he'll probably "retire" soon). All of his gundam releases are the best.
The OP and ED for Turn A is actually digitally animated, so it's upscaled hence why it doesn't look nearly as good. The actual episodes are on glorious 35mm film which is why the BDs look so damn good. Can't wait for the second box to come out so I can rewatch my favourite gundam show.
>>117378738 Eh, it happens. I thought the BDs for the Big O looked pretty nice (for season one anyway). You can see the unfortunate quality drop to SD digital animation in season two. Plus, grain perfectly suited the atmosphere of the show. I think s2 did have more actual animation overall, so it's not all bad.
>The OP and ED for Turn A is actually digitally animated, so it's upscaled hence why it doesn't look nearly as good. Ah, okay. Thanks for that bit of info. I just assumed it was DNRing going on because the copies they had were bad or something.
Do you know when the second box is set to come out? I'm still working through the first, so it's no huge rush, but i was just wondering.
>>117378978 That sounds disappointing because I just now finished watching season 1. But this dust is driving me nuts. I have really high contrast settings on my screen, really dark darks and really bright brights is how I like it, and it suits this show as well as other of my favorite anime. But it makes these dust spots so much more noticeable than what you can even see here (assuming your computer screen is on normal settings). It's like whoever photographed the cells had really bad dandruff or something.
The dust is either from dirty reels of film or they were inherently there from the day they photographed the cels. Debris removal can always be done, but it's laborious and expensive, so really only Hollywood would bother. Honneamise had a lot of dust too.
>>117379189 Oh yeah, if you have contrast cranked up; then it's not surprising that you'll be seeing a lot of dust. That's just the way film is and it's not something a lot of people are going to be bothered to remove like >>117379345 pointed out.
Well, you won't see them in season two anymore (heh).
>>117379456 >Older anime seems to have quite a bit of grainy shit.
Grain is just the way film is. There's nothing wrong with it. Degraining anything, live action movies or anime is a fucking atrocity. Grain removal is bad practice in video editing because it usually fucks things up to get rid of what is a non-problem in the first place.
>>117379584 This is correct. A really infamous example is the Ultimate Hunter Edition of Predator. The original print is pretty grainy (a lot of McTiernan's films tend to have grain) and they went overboard trying to get rid of it. It looks downright terrible in some shots.
>>117372908 For BDs to help you actually need to have extra detail to show. Older shows are on film and can be rescanned, but many newer shows are being rendered at 720p or lower, with no higher quality source (which is a fucking sin in the TV industry, by the way). It's why the BDs of Planetes, a show from 11 years ago, look phenomenal (most of the time, there's the occasional scene with sub-1080p source) while most shows today don't look so great.
>>117379584 >Grain is just the way film is. There's nothing wrong with it. Grain sucks, but removing it from film only makes things worse. Otherwise, there's no reason to add grain in this day and age.
They want to milk the brand. Can't have them Eva BDs out ahead of 4.0, you need 4.0's BD to release first. I just wonder what other BDs were going to see from now till then, even from Gainax like with Otaku no Video.
>>117379797 Planetes is very clearly upscaled, but it certainly does look better than most of its contemporaries. Overman King Gainer looks pretty good for a show of that era, so it's probably a Sunrise thing.
Fuck, man. I still have a DVD of that shit, I haven't thought about it in probably ten years.
>>117380110 NGE and EoE already look great, and the source material wouldn't magically become higher quality. I just feel like Anno would have done it already if he actually wanted to, but I guess we'll see with the 25th anniversary or something. I like that NGE DVDs are sort of rare, like you can't just go to fucking rightstuf and buy them. I don't think he'd want to cheapen the original series by doing all that remastering shit.
>they really ruined the timelessness of Macross when they released it on BD I hope your being facetious, the ADV DVDs were fuck awful, and Robotech will always be fucking awful looking as well because they're never getting the new materials.
>>117380319 Assuming Anno doesn't just cheapass it and upscale for the BD, then yes it would look better. You get the original film (the TV series is probably on 16mm and EoE is probably on 35mm) and do a proper remaster and there will be far more detail captured in the BD. EoE looks great, but imagine a proper remaster to 1080p. That shit would be amazing.
Even if the TV series is 16mm and not necessarily going to look spectacular, we have dozens of other 16mm TV series out on BD that look amazing. Are you afraid the BDs might highlight animation flubs like they did with Nadia? Big deal, they're completely unimportant. In terms of remastering, Eva is just like any other 90s series and not at all special.
