  1. Dragon Ball Z remaster Project

    No problem, good luck with the mask code and hopefully it will be useful I think if you really want to degrain the DBZ footage or any old footage in that case it's always best to use a masks to preserve the original line art. The only problem i'm having myself, i'm still trying to figure out how to correctly create masks. Currently i've been doing some testing with the mt_edge and mt_inflate function in masktools: mt_edge(mode="hprewitt", thy1=110, thY2=255).mt_inflate(u=2,v=2) I also got a pretty good looking mask using the following code: edgemask = video edgemask = mt_makediff(edgemask.mt_inflate(u=2,v=2), edgemask).mt_lut("x 128 - 5 *") edgemask = Levels(edgemask, 0,1,255,80,255) edgemask = Greyscale(edgemask) If you increase the 5 in mt_lut you can expand the mask. I use avspmod to preview my code so when i'm making the mask it's pretty useful to directly see the result. In my previous code i used Overlay to merge the raw luma. But I figure you can also just use the mt_merge function for that.

    Hi Karyuuni i used dfttest to denoise / degrain the screenshot from Trunks. Also for anyone interested in the complete Avisynth script here it is : # Note: i'm in no way inclining i'm using these filters in their correct way. # Neither do i incline to know how to everything works, i'm still learning Avisynth myself. # So just take my code as a grain of salt. # Real experts might even cringe seeing my filter chain :) # LOAD DBZ Trunks screenshot acquired from: kanzenshuu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1182242#p1182242 # NOTE: I CROP OFF 700PX to hide the comparison made by kanzenshuu.com RAW_YUV12 = ImageSource("161104044711907759.png").ConvertToYV12().Crop(0, 0, -700, 0) RAW_RGB32 = ImageSource("161104044711907759.png").ConvertToRGB32().Crop(0, 0, -700, 0) # My idea was to make a mask from the raw lineart so i could later merge it back ontop of the denoised image. # This mask isn't perfect and most likely i'm doing it completely wrong but i'm still learning emboss = subtract(RAW_YUV12, crop(RAW_YUV12, 2, 0, -0, -0).AddBorders(0, 0, 2, 0)) v1 = ColorYUV(emboss, off_y=-128) v2 = Invert(emboss).ColorYUV(off_y=-128) Merge(v1, v2).ColorYUV(gain_y=1000) linemask = last.ConvertToRGB() # Next I take the RAW RGB32 image and use ColorMill a VirtualDub plugin to restore the green sky and skin tone etc RAW_RGB32 LoadVirtualDubPlugin("ColorMill.vdf", "colorMill") ColorMill(25688, 25724, 25700, 24420, 25700, 25700, 26470, 25670, 25695, 25693, 25705, 25700, 25700, 1124, 5) ConvertToYV12() # Here I used dfttest to DEGRAIN the image # Note i think this is too aggressive for a video but sins i was just trying to fix a single frame i settled on Dfttest dfttest(sigma=70, tbsize=5) # Next I tried to make the line art a bit darker and thinner: FastLineDarken(strength=48, luma_cap=191, threshold=4, thinning=24) mfToon2(strength=20, sharpen=false) AwarpSharp2(depth=4) # At this point a lot detail has been destroyed so i use my previous created mask to restore the original line art. # Ore atleast that is what i was trying todo. # I made sure to change the opacity so i could still see a bit of the previous line darken etc Overlay(RAW_YUV12, mask=linemask, x=0, y=1, opacity=0.5, mode="luma") # I felt the contrast just needed a tiny bit more and removed a tiny bit of saturation SmoothAdjust_SmoothTweak(brightness=0, contrast=1.1, saturation=0.95, hue1=2, hue2=0, TVrange=True, Lmode=0, limitSTR=100) # Stackhorzintal was used to compare the end result StackHorizontal(last, RAW_YUV12)

    Personally i'm fine with how the series looks i have no desire to work on it. But i do love the passion people are putting into the series. And have seen some really unbelievable color corrections on the kanzenshuu forums. I want to thank kojiroryuga for his link it was inspiring to see how far someone can go with color adjustments. I've been working on a old cartoon series myself so i fully understand how much work these kind of projects require. A interesting example screenshot from Trunks originally posted on the Kanzenshuu forums here: http://www.kanzenshuu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1182242#p1182242 Made me want todo my own attempt on just this particulier frame, just for fun. I saved and cropped it so i could work with the unfiltered screenshot. Tried a couple of filters to clean it up and based my colors on the fixed screenshot in Avisynth. It took me a while to figure out how to adjust the sky but it was fun and i just wanted to see if it was really possible haha. For those interested in seeing what i came up with here's my attempt Note: applying this settings to complete episode would probably never work sins i based all my settings on a single screenshot.
  4. Yeah i thought i'd share it here sins subtitles are mostly used with anime series. Like @MaxxCatt mentioned if you have the latest VLC you are safe. They fixed it already. Also thanks @Superoswald for clearing that up i wasn't aware this vulnerability was related to only .zip archived subtitles. Makes sense because it would be pretty strange if someone would be able to embedded malicious stuff in .ass , .srt files etc.
  5. I've been wanting to do a comparison between the various Super Mario Bros. Super Show / Legend of Zelda DVD, VHS and streaming releases for a while. I hope anyone interested in collecting the series wil have use for it. This is my buying guide for you on which releases to get and why. In my comparisons i try to include details on the quality, languages, extras and even specifically mention if something is missing has been changed ore was added ect. Little history about the show. The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! is an American television series based upon Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 2. The show was produced by DiC and was distributed by Viacom Enterprises. When it originally broadcasted in 1989 the show ran from Monday to Friday. In total the series consisted out of 52 Super Mario Bros and 13 Legend of Zelda cartoons. Each episode began with a live-action segment starring Captain Lou Albano and Danny Wells. During the summer of 1990 DIC tried to make the show more 90s by replacing the live-action segments with a show called Club Mario. In its original form 41 Mario episodes included pop music from the 80s. The music played during the cartoon's were mostly removed and replaced on later airings / releases. This GUIDE includes both NTSC and PAL releases. --------------------------------------------------------------------- DVD releases: Title: Shout Factory The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!: Volume 1 - 2006 release Language: English Subtitles: none Region: Region 1 Number of discs: 4 Episodes included: 24 Aspect Ratio: 4:3 Title: The Super Mario Bros Super Show - Volume One 2004 Language: English Subtitles: none Region: Region 2 Number of discs: 1 Episodes included: 6 Aspect Ratio: 4:3 - 1.33:1 Title: The Super Mario Bros Super Show - Volume 2 2004 Language: English Subtitles: none Region: Region 2 Number of discs: 1 Episodes included: 5 Aspect Ratio: 4:3 - 1.33:1 Title: The Super Mario Bros Super Show - Robo Koopa 2005 Language: English Subtitles: none Region: Region 2 Number of discs: 1 Episodes included: 3 Aspect Ratio: 4:3 - 1.33:1 ------ Topic To be continued soon sorry for the wait guys!
  6. The 13 legend of zelda live action segments from the Mario Bros are not included in the UK / Australian release either. Netflix and the complete DVD set from Australian are pretty much the same source. The only difference the Australian set didn't include "The unzappables / Club Mario" and is also missing Rolling down the river. The Quality is a bit better on the DVDs of course and it's NTSC . I personally like the quality better on them then the Shout Factory ones because the are not sharpend and are also not denoised. Resulting in a lot more fine details in the picture which where lost in the Shout Factory version. The UK cartoons have better line art then the NTSC versions but unfortunately the are 25fps. Currently the only dvds that include live action segments which where not on Netflix is on the Complete Legend of Zelda DVD set by Shout Factory. And also on a separate DVD release called Mario Mania which includes "Slime Busters".
  7. @BAC0NB0Y I'm planning on doing a comparison between the various releases but i wanted to save that for a other topic. Sins you mentioned the DVDs you own are not French but don't include the live action segments i guess your referring to one of the Ncircle releases. I'd be interested in a seeing some screenshots but i think it would be more interesting to create a separate topic about it so i can nicely organize it. The reason why i asked about the French releases is because i'm thinking of buying them. Here is a comparison between the UK on the left and the Australian set on the right. I noticed all of the NTSC releases have these line art separations. The UK dvds didn't have this issue but the never finished the set and are PAL. The French dvds where released by the same company so if the didn't change their authoring operation i think the quality should be similar. Of course i can never be sure without having seen some screenshots. Note: i resized the image from the PAL UK dvd to do this comparison.
  8. Thanks man your awesome I'ts cool to have the full series archived from Netflix and your right who knows maybe there are other streaming sources beter. I remember a few years ago someone mentioned hulu also had the series but just like the Netflix versions i was never able to watch them myself. So i have no comparison. Also i'm running into some troubles playing The Unzappables episode it stops playing after 11:20. I tried to re-download it but run into the same issue using VLC the other one is playing fine. It does include the never before released Club Mario live action segment so that's really cool ^^ Also i see web-dl software seems the best solution otherwise you have watch a full episode while recording. I'm wondering if the screen recording software allows a higer bitrate the videos look a bit compressed but i have no way of telling maybe the Netflix source is already pretty compressed. Also your right about the series it aired together with the Zelda cartoons which where only 13 episodes long. That brings the series to total of 65. The Zelda cartoons also had live action segments from the Mario Bros. But most of them where never released. I doubt Netflix ore any other streaming service has the missing ones. Just wondering btw does anyone here have the French DVDs ? I'm not looking for the ISO ore anything just a few screenshots. So i can compare the quality.
  9. Hi uncc49, Thank you so much for grabbing a episode from Netflix for me. To be honest i've never seen the quality from the Netflix episodes a friend of mine who lives in the US told me about the Super Mario Bros. Super show beeing on Netflix. He mentioned the quality was pretty decent so i really wanted to check it out myself. Unfortunately the series wasn't even available in my country so i couldn't even watch it using my Netflix trial. I really want to make a restoration with the best source videos available. But the filters used on the Super Show by Shout Factory really look horrible in most episodes. My friend told me the Netflix episodes don't use the extra sharpening that's is why i was really interested in seeing the episodes. I have no idea how the quality looks while watching the episodes on Netflix. Most likely this is the best quality one is able to capture but could anyone confirm this for me ? If it's possible to capture the footage in higher quality somehow could anyone do this maybe ? On second thought i can understand if i'm asking to much here i mean the series is 52 episodes long. Maybe it's better if i first check my source videos and come back to this topic with a few specific episodes I want from Netflix to fill in the gaps i need for my restoration. I am really happy with the The Little Red Riding hood episode. It was one of the episodes i needed. uncc49 could you maybe capture "The Unzappables" i'd love to have the Netflix version. Sins it includes footage which has never been released to DVD. The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World where the second and third Tv shows created by Dic Entertainment. The Super Mario Bros. Super Show was the first one which was based on SMB2 / SMB it aired 52 episodes and where partly live action partly cartoon. Thanks again uncc49!
  10. Hi everyone, I actually have a second request regarding the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. My previous one is about the Kid Klassics VHS releases located here. This time i'm looking for Netflix copies. Is their anyone here who could possible rip / record the Super Mario Bros. Super Show Netflix episodes for me please ? I'm looking for the best quality available. Preferred upload host: mega.nz Resolution: 720x480 Frame rate: 29.97 FPS Frame Type: --- Aspect Ratio: 4:3 Container: --- Thanks for looking at my request!
  11. Dear Kametsu members, I was hoping someone on here could help me obtain copies from the following VHS tapes: Princess I shrunk the Marios/Koopa Claus/Two Plumbers and a Baby. These VHS tapes where only released in the USA by Kid Klassics around 1989 - 1991. I would love to have a raw VHS rips in the best quality possible, the don't have to be cleaned up just a raw copy captured with DVD recorder ore capture card would be perfect. Also the audio is really important even more than the video quality. So if possible i would prefer the audio to be captured in stereo with a high bitrate. Here is a image including the VHS tapes i'm talking about. Additional info: Preferred upload host: mega.nz Resolution: 720x480 Frame rate: 29.97 FPS Frame Type: Interlaced Aspect Ratio: 4:3 Container: VOB / MPEG / AVI Thanks for looking at my request i hope someone can help me out.
  12. I just came across this news on a other website and i thought i'd share it here with everyone so everybody can take precautions. It seems popular streaming platforms such as VLC, Kodi (XBMC), Popcorn-Time and strem.io have vulnerabilities. Check Point researchers revealed a new attack vector which threatens millions of users worldwide – attack by subtitles. Apparently it is possible to craft malicious subtitle files which can be included with any video. When an victim’s media player plays ore downloads a subtitle file through a streaming device the attackers can take complete control over the device. Here's a link to the full article: http://blog.checkpoint.com/2017/05/23/hacked-in-translation/ Kodi, VLC, Popcorn Time and Stremio are the platforms on which the researchers tested their hack, but they expect that many other media players are also vulnerable. The aforementioned parties are informed in advance and have the vulnerabilities according to Check Point already partially solved, while further research is done. VLC and Stremio have updated their software released to fix the vulnerability. The team behind Kodi will have the vulnerability being addressed in version 17.2 For users of VLC: be sure to check manually if your version number is version 2.2.6 sins it doesn't always update to the latest right away.
  13. Hello everybody, I'm new to kametsu, the forum looks really nice and I wanted to check it out.
