More HD DVD screen captures







These are from Unleashed. It’s not quite as good-looking as Serenity (a little softer and some very mild signs of temporal noise reduction), but still an absolute beauty to behold - especially when you consider that the file for the film itself, including audio, is a mere 12.8 GB. It’s because of transfers like this that I struggle to believe the mantra espoused by many Blu-ray supporters that 30 GB is not enough. This film comes on a single-layer (15 GB) HD DVD/DVD combo disc and looks amazing!

I'd say that it's very soft. Especially compared to "King Kong". In other words; nothing that blows me away.

That’s the problem: I just don’t think it’s capturing it at its full resolution. It certainly looks far more impressive played back on my HD-A1. And I agree that the King Kong captures are much more impressive: the one of Kong is clearly using every line of the available resolution.

I also noticed that the KK caps took much longer to load were as these load in less than a second. I agree that played back on 1080p or 768, they look far more impresseve. Corpse Bride, the whole film has that looking out of a window clarity and detail that isn't as apparent in these caps
