I heard anime has recently switched to 4k, yet I wonder why it's hard to find torrents. Is there also ways to encode shit to make it 4k? Can CCCP even handle 4K? Hell has anyone even managed to upscale shit to 4k?
That argument might have made sense before digital was such a big part of the process and everything was completely physical, but it hasn't been that way for a good fifteen years now.
>I heard anime has recently switched to 4k
How can you be this stupid
It's not about the change. Anime is mostly around 720p because larger resolution would take more time and money, since they'd have to draw it on bigger papers. Apart from few works all 1080p anime is digitally upscaled from 720p. One more reason why anime is not gonna be anything near 4k anytime soon. At least hand-drawn anime isn't.
Not that guy, but what he's saying is a large part of the work is done digitally, so you'd have to improve resolution throughout the entire process, not just at the mastering stage.
"QUALITY" does make it sound like we're talking about how fine their drawings are, but if you think about it, that makes no fucking sense. There's other ways a show's animation quality can be in trouble.
>Paper is always the same size
Not always. It depends on the resolution they're aiming for. If they wanna release 1080p they need bigger paper, since upscaling reduces the quality of end product. And there's just no way out of that.
No, the paper is the same size, but scanning it in a higher resolution allows you to capture finer details. Resolution only significantly affects the digital processes of animation production; drawings make no difference.
>I heard anime has recently switched to 4k, yet I wonder why it's hard to find torrents
Probably because there would be practically nothing out in 4k. Even if things were released in 4k the gains would be non-existent.
Hell, 4k is pretty much useless unless we're talking 55"+ displays here.
I usually still download 720p unless the 1080p version has a decent improvement. Which many things still don't.
That's not true. Paper size is significant factor on the resolution of final product. Resolution isn't something you can just adjust from any size picture without it affecting the quality. Same goes for scanning, it doesn't work as you said. If you scan a picture on A5 paper size, it will look shit after being scanned and upscaled to 1080p, or even 720p. Your problem is that you seem to think that resolution is just something completely digital that has nothing to do with the original drawn picture.
>If you scan a picture on A5 paper size, it will look shit after being scanned and upscaled to 1080p, or even 720p
1) How can you "upscale" a picture to a progressive scan format when pictures are pictures, not video?
2) Why would you need to "upscale it to 1080" if you scan a file of 1080 rows out of the picture?
3) Why do people talk about stuff they have no fucking idea about?
He's just saying that if you want finer lines, you'll have to make bigger drawings. If you just scan a normal-sized drawing with higher DPI, the edges of the lines will be sharper but the image itself won't change because the lines will just be thicker. Basically, he's saying that scanning any drawing at a higher resolution won't give more detail to the drawing, only to the digital image of the drawing.
>I heard anime has recently switched to 4k
Yeah dude, only a month after the Japanese government decided to enforce a ban on sub-60fps anime
>pictures are pictures, not video
You do understand that when you're watching anime, the moving picture on your screen is actually made up from still pictures on a paper, right?
you made me smile.
The "papers" are scanned at say 600dpi which gives around 8 inches x 600 dpi = 4800 pixels in height. This is then downscaled to the required height.
But you are correct in some sense, for 1080p or 4k anime the animators need to add details invisible in lower resolutions, but they don't use bigger papers, they use additional sheets of paper for said details.
When you draw animation, you draw what you want the viewer to see, not because you have a quota of pixels to fill. This limiting of information is one of the most powerful tools which distinguishes animation from film. A drawing is a drawing, you don't draw more just because you have more pixels to fill.
Also to suggest that A5 paper looks shit at 1080 shows that you have never created a single drawing yourself. A pencil drawing on A4 paper contains so much textural detail that at least 8K resolution scan to accurately reproduce the fine textures produced. A line is not simply a line.
People who do not even take the time to understand such simple concepts about their favorite medium should really stop posting.

You do understand it's absolutely retarded to say "upscale this picture to a progressive scan video format," right?

your fallacy starts here. Go figure.

those drawn lines will be traced later on using software.
