You can do it. The power of the UNIVERSE and Dianna's love is on your side.
And thank you for your work.
I expected this.
I'm revising the filter chain for this boxset in order to better counter the hideous edge enhancement Sunrise applied to it. After doing Outlaw Star, it's kinda hard to go back to seeing super DNR'd 35mm...
Here's the original BD.
Woops, forgot image.
And here is the current filter chain of halo removal and very light sharpening. Looks a lot closer to what 35mm resolution should be in my opinion.

So I'm also fiddling with an unsharp mask, which I never considered to give me good results, but tuning it to an unusually high radius gives me interesting contrast results. This particular frames gives the impression that it simply darkens the colors; however, let's look at a different frame.
Here's another raw BD frame, notice the low contrast dark details.
At least you get a BD transfer at all unlike most shows.
Filtered with USM.
At least you actually got blurays
Well really I post these because I want to make things like this are okay with people. I never want to overfilter if I can avoid it, and being a Blu-ray, I like to go light. Obviously turn-a needs a little "help", but I need serious adjustments that involve color to be community I approved.
Noted. I've reduced it and am testing some clips out with actual encodes. It's a 50/50 chance at this point. I'd like to reduce some of the murkiness of the transfer, but I'd rather let it be if it's better off that way.
Calibrated here as well. The contrast isn't wrong, per se, but the DNR has sort of a murky side effect in my opinion. It should be a bit "crisper", and what I was basically trying to do was a form of local contrast enhancement. For unrelated reasons, I have disabled the filter.
Jesus christ, box 2 is awful. It looks more DNR'd than box 1 if memory serves correct.
I mean, why bother when the faces look like this and they have those weird "couldn't be bothered to color in the eyes" soulless thing going on?
