Taka‘s release has been around for a while and has proven to be far better than mine, so I’m not sure if there is any point for me to keep doing Regios. I’m posting a few screenshots to compare video quality (DVD version has been scaled to 720p for comparison purposes):
As you can (probably) see, my encode is true to its DVD source. I think I managed to keep a good quality overall and there aren’t many artifacts, but the picture itself doesn’t seem as sharp as Taka’s HDTV release. Following denpa’s advice (thanks!) I tried to experiment with some filters to make it sharper, but I still thought it was lacking somehow. Also, unlike FMP, Regios uses Vob Subs from the DVD, so I may not have given it my best.
Hence the poll above. It’s up to you guys to decide whether I should continue with the series. Thank you for your feedback!
Full Metal Panic 04 is almost done. I’m currently encoding a movie that will be released soon!
