I know that a project for remaster of All series and Movies are still in works on varios Discord servers

Are these servers private, inactive, or something of that nature? Is there a roadblock that the project has run into? Does the team want to hold off until a massive release? Has the project been dropped?

I've heard of projects like these getting transferred over to someone else. But any clue as to where/when to look for a release?

You have no idea how badly people want their dbz (4:3) properly upscaled in 1080p...

@LordFenix Could you please give some details regarding this ultimate dragon box project the guy you know works on? Like, will he doing all db, dbz, dbgt and their corresponding movies, tv specials and ovas? Will they be cc and multi audio? Will he share them here on Kametsu or in public release in general?

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. ;)

i mean that some members here that create a "fake" community on a website dead from some time called kametsu.com lead by a guy named jasonspidey was only to grower his collection by collecting what others have 

he already finish doing everything but never intend to share them with others all he was doing (only sharing 15 first episodes) was to attract people , if you wanted some stuff from him you was forced to share stuff or paid server fee 

it will never be shared so don't count on him

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)

Thank you very much for the information, I will try to work with it, I have never used masks, I will see what results I have with when trying to use this feature, I have never tried because I do not know how to use this feature. But I'll try to follow the schematic you used in your script to see if I can get something here.

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.

I have recently started up my project again. I'd be lucky to have it finished by the end of the year, but we'll see ;)

      So since there wasn't a dedicated thread for Tamers on the forums, I thought I'd make one myself. First things first: which group(s) will be handling the raws for Digimon Tamers? I've been visiting FY-RAWS' website daily, on the off-chance that they've already released the 8-bit raws. Can someone who knows Chinese ask them if they plan to do Tamers? Also, does anyone know if any release group plans to do the 10-bit raws? Next, what are your thoughts on the new drama CD? Do you think Tamers should have a continuation? Finally, what did you like the most about Tamers? Feel free to discuss anything pertaining to Tamers in this thread.

      i've never watched a single episode of anime, or atleast, not that i know of. the amount of shows seems a bit overwhelming. if someone could send me a couple of good ones to start watching that would be perfect.
