That would require Nick to put the effort into remastering something.
No wait, they'd probably just do a simple resize to 1080p from the SD masters.
It's not like the consumer will know the difference, right?
The show was actually made in widescreen and cropped in the US and most countries though, maybe someday we'll see an hd uncropped release
(Not that it matters much though, it was made with 4:3 in mind so the rest of the footage is just background )
The just released a new DVD complete series package in December.
Eithet they cleaning out their inventory for a Blu Ray release to sell to everybody again or this was it and it's not happening.
Has anyone bought it on iTunes? Is the quality just 480p or HD?
>for an animated show
How much fucking clear can fucking drawn lines get I don't understand this shit.
I'm legitimately wondering, I don't get this.
Just compare Korra's visuals to Avatar's. Or resize a DVD screenshot to know how shit SD looks on today's screens.
Avatar was inked, colored, and composited digitally. Even if the original paper drawings still exist, it would be more effort to start over from the inking stage than to just trace over every frame of the 720p version.
If the backgrounds were originally done in higher resolutions, I could see animated portions being upscaled and looking pretty decent.
Of course, Nick wouldn't go through any of this effort.
>Not watching 1080p anime remastered from film sourced masters...
Wait a sec!
That explains why you don't care about your "cartoons" resolution since what you watch is poorly looking garbage to begin with
>Resolution doesn't matter for cartoons
Fucking /co/mblr scum!
There are 720p fan-upscales available through torrent websites.
They look absolutely awful and are a clear case in favor of using original film elements when attempting an HD remastering of a show previously broadcast in SD.
Why bother? If you're just blowing up a 480p video to 720p, aren't you just bloating your file size without any actual effect on quality? Doesn't my video player do the same thing when I play a video in fullscreen?
HD. SD. Whatever.
I wouldn't have minded a new DVD release if the quality was any good. Definition doesn't even come into it, ATLA home releases are blurry and artefacted as Hell and generally look like shit.
>How much fucking clear can fucking drawn lines get
Approximately this clear, you clod. I bet you can't even notice the interlace aliasing in the pic you just posted.
I was comparing a clear 1080p cap to a shitty 720p TV-RAW. Even there the difference in line quality was drastic.
