Robotics;Notes BD Episode 01
So we’ll be offering 3 versions of this: 1080p, 720p, and a test 720p Hi444pp. The Hi444pp version differs from the regular versions by having full chroma (color) resolution.
There’s a lot of technical stuff involved, but basically there’s no loss of color data so it looks better in areas with lots of red.
Also, all 3 versions use kernel inversion in which the source has the original upscale by the animation company undone, and for the 1080p it’s then re-upscaled using a better upscale method. This means it’s a lot sharper and looks like the animation company intended it to before the “professional” BD makers did a shit bicubic upscale on it.
As always, any feedback is appreciated as this is the first Blu-ray I’ve actually been serious about making it look good.
TL;DR this 1080p looks better than the original. All releases are 10bit and softsub. People with special needs (8bit or 480p) use the TV versions.
A note about terminology: “Yoriaiki” will be left untranslated since it’s a real festival in Japan.
Even though Kaitou and Kamina are practically members here now, they still want their group, Kaitou-Fansubs, credited.
