Why has there never been a HD or remastered version of the Daicon IV opening? It's one of the most iconic pieces of animation of all time. Did they lose the original materials and are unable to do it? Will we ever watch the intro in the quality it deserves?
>Did they lose the original materials and are unable to do it
I know there have been individuals who have gone back and replaced the sound effects, but I think the sounds for the Daicon III video are too old and no longer available.
I think it was filmed on 8mm, so around 720p is the best you could ever see it, even under ideal archival conditions, which I doubt happened.
Pic related is the exact demarcation point between ancient and modern anime for me.
NIGHT IS DAY AND TWILIGHTS GONE AWAY
anyone have a music file of the version in the animation?
it's blocked in my country and because of that i only found another version on yt.. thanks anyway i found it now
It was for guys literally working out of their garage.
And the animation for Daicon 4 isn't aged. It's just a different style. Still extremely difficult and time consuming to do it all by hand.
Stop this inflationary use of ellipses on /a/.
As for the animation in question: No it wasn't revolutionary as such, but it perfectly described what anime was to otaku and it was made pretty well for a doujin.
>was it revolutionary at the time?
>It has aged bad
Are you fucking insane? The animation is beautiful, even more so when you realize it was made by a group of amateurs in a sweatshop.
>didn't know it was made by otaku
