Super Dimension Fortress Macross 1080p


As with the 720p release, this contains all content from the SDF Macross Blurays, including the bonus disc. Everything except for the PS2 game promo and 30th Anniversary Special have subs. All subtitles are retimed versions of the Galaxy Network translation.

Because of the nature of the sources used, the commercial collection, the original broadcast version of episode 11, and the game promo have been downscaled to 640x480. (the first two because they were taken from cruddy NTSC tape, and the game promo because it's game footage of a PS2 game).

Filtering: As little as possible. All the normal episodes, OP/ED collection, and pachinko videos only have cropping and the stuff needed for 10-bit. The Macross Special needed a simple IVTC added, while the commercial collection, original broadcast episode 11, game promo, and 30th Anniversary Special needed deinterlacing.

Video: 10-bit x264, crf21

1080p SDF Macross is currently underway.

Yep. It's happening. As usual, the only torrent will be the final batch. Until then, they'll be available here.

Video: 10-bit x264, crf 21
Audio: AAC 50%

Filtering on material sourced from HD film scans (all episodes, the special, and most, if not all of the OP collection) is limited to crops, trims, and 10-biting the color. All upscaled material (which is limited to the bonus disc) will be de-upscaled if possible.
