What is the highest resolution available for Evangelion, the series? End of Evangelion and the rebuilds are in 1080, but has the show been remastered to 1080 as well?
Evangelion is on a film master like a lot of older things. What determines the quality is the quality of the film (how small the grain is).
It's analong, so you could theoretically take it to 4K and 8K etc. and still gain quality, but you would just be getting imperceptibly more detailed grain. Actually, this isn't quite true for the opening of Evangelion, which was shot on 70mm, and for Akira, the entirety of which was shot on 70mm because of fucking course it was.
Regardless, you are taking an analog format to digital, so to get better quality you just do a better transfer. The other anon's argument would make sense if it was a digital master, but it isn't. This is also why anime from early 2000s will be forever shit while late 80s early 90s anime will be transferred to glorious hi-definition.
If you've actually watched anything that was shot on film and remastered for BD then it's pretty obviously not upscaled.
Not my fault that you're blind and too underage to know how film worked
I wasnt saying it was upscaled. I knew there was some other way but I never knew what in detail until now. And I'll probably remember that forever now. Maybe if you weren't pressuming the worst of everyone here you would be a little happier.
