The best approach would have been to use soft-pulldown; that way you can have video with progressive encoded 23.98p/29.97p and interlaced 59.94i. Dynit/Dybex BDs of Cowboy Bebop use soft-pulldown.
You learn something new everydayEarly HD shows from the mid 2000s were animated at mixed frame rates, especially in shows with CG content. Back then CG elements were animated at 60Hz, 30fps. When that is converted to 24fps for 1080p presentation, it means dropped frames and ghosting, and even judder. That's why some people were keener on the Korean 1080i Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex sets than Manga's release.
Currently review the Blu-Ray Evangelion release (standard edition). On Episode 18, when it goes to the preview for Episode 19, it uses unrestored footage.
That would perhaps relate to this:On Episode 18, when it goes to the preview for Episode 19, it uses unrestored footage.
It does, but you have to interlace the footage from 25p to 50i then flag the video as progressive before encoding. Cheap blu-ray players will bob the video to 50p while some more advanced ones will "understand" and blend the fields to get the expected 25p.I've never understood why the blu-ray spec doesn't support 1080p at 25 or 30 fps. It's such a bizarre omission.
Interesting regarding the subtitle locking as, if I'm correct, Toei doesn't normally enforce subtitle locking.One Piece Collection 24.
From disc 3, Season 10 Voyage One, the subtitles and audio are locked during playback.
Disc 3's subtitles are a deep red for some strange reason, harder to read. The other three discs have the proper white subtitles.
