Garo's picture quality

Post by steelpengu » Sun Jun 07, 2009 10:02 am

I've noticed Garo tends to have lot of artifacting and pixelation in it's value ranges, particularly during heavy midtone scenes like indoors. Is this part of the .AVI compression or was it native to their broadcast and dvd releases. It sometimes makes some of their more terrific effects scenes hard to read.

it would probably be with the way it was encoded that caused the artifacting

I kind of figured, since the artifacting isn't constant, that it was probably a problem on their post-production end. That kind of sucks. It baffles me when major productions like this have all this effort and professionalism put into the onscreen aspects, that they don't have someone in post outputing their footage properly.

not encoding on the tv station side, encoding on our side when the subs were combined into the show

Ah! In that case I apologize the gripe, as the kind of effort and quality put into the subs here is no small feat. I'll put my info in with Takenoko, in case you guys ever need a hand.

YAY FOR REMAKE!

I personally didn't find the artifacting that irritating.

It really clears up after episode 6. It gets down right muddy during the fights in 6 and then episode 7 rolls and long and the artifacting clears up and the story get rolling too! I figure they were probably shooting Garo on MiniDV in the first place, since the HDV wave was about to hit it's stride when it was made. MiniDV can be prone to handling low value ranges very very poorly, which is what I initially thought was what was going on.
