Millenium Actress - HDTV vs. R1 vs. R2J vs. R4

Unread post by Lourdes » 29 Jun 2007, 18:09

All DVD's are progressive but the R2J has a problem with aliasing

The broadcast has too many compression artefacts but you can see the extra details it brings. R4 is slightly sharper than the R1 but also has slight cropping.

I'll add caps from the french DVD later. :)
Good comparison.
I used to be "the man who loves the movies you hate".
Now I'm just "that weird french guy with a cat avatar who comes to BnB once a year for no reason and then disappears again".

Done.

The french transfer is on par with the R1 in terms of sharpness (not as good as the R4: see cap n°3), but it's also brighter.

Added the R2J. Tons more image and a nicer palette (Mononoke again) but the aliasing is horrible.
