what resolution dose /a/ download anime?
im really torn as to if 1080p is worth the extra 200+ mb of extra data to have it look slightly better over 720. i can tell the difference and i want to future proof my archive. give it a few years do you think the extra memory will even be worth thinking about? player makes a difference as well 720 can look just as good as a 1080 on the right player. HALP
Yeah, that's pretty much the long and short of it.
TV/CR encoding is going to dull any advantage the higher res has, and you'd wait for the BD fixes before you went for archive quality anyway.
guess your right. looking at the BD screens of F/SN is night and day vs the TV
however alot of the time i cant seem to find blu ray rips of the shows i like hence why i still don't have 1080p zetsubou sensei
fuck you i like it
Don't bother with 1080p at the TV (or in that case, CR rip stage). It will barely make any difference. Even with BD rips, it still won't make a difference for most TV anime, because they're never animated at anything close to that resolution. The only time 1080p will really make a noticeable difference is for older shows that were remastered from film, and really high budget movies. 720p will be fine for everything else.
ahh thats much cheaper than the quick search i looked for. would possibly buy if subbed. why don't japan do this?? they would make so much more money
They probably wouldn't though. The amount of extra sales they'd get by adding subs would be pretty insignificant in terms of Japanese pricing. Subtitling BDs is difficult, so they probably figure it isn't worth the effort.
Not without retarded prices, especially in some areas.
I used to have satellite internet, $70 a month (including home phone, so about $50) for 3gb a month, because we lived in an awkward spot.
well it looks good but there's still a slight difference i notice when i put it next to a 1080. for a show like this just went with 720 but with bigger stuff im gonna go with 1080. then get the blu ray if i find it
i have enough money to easily buy a new external when its used up but just because i have the space doesn't mean i should use it carelessly. however give it a few years it will be a none issue and we will all be arguing over 4k anime or something
Frame rate won't change, this isn't live action where you can change the camera's FPS.
Increasing the amount of frames means having to actually draw them.
It's much easier to upgrade to higher resolutions if there is a need for increased quality.
Little to no TV anime have been. Film remasters can be MADE in 1080p, and I imagine a fair amount of movies are, but apart from that anime is mostly produced at 480p, from what I understand.
Grisaia might be. Otherwise they're all mastered at 720p or some percentage of 1080p.
