Second batch with 26-50 is out now. Full details about the upscale process are in the Nyaa posts, but basically, this is an upscale of the original SD version of SEED. It was done using a custom upscaling model trained specifically on the HD Remaster.

This version is based on the SD Blu-rays from Rightstuf, so the source is much cleaner than the original DVDs, and it's from hchcsen's remuxes, so they're as good as you can get.

The thing is, the model has to be trained on the low res and high res versions of identical content. The problem is finding HD versions that are "good" comparisons. Unfortunately, there are many HD remasters that are overly denoised, so the model then becomes trained to remove a ton of background detail.

I've tried creating synthetic downscales of 16mm content (G-Gundam), effectively making my own pretend DVD encodes, then training against the original BD version. I then also added some 0080 DVD and BD comparisons into the training to give it some real world variety, and it's pretty effective, though it can smooth some details too. The 0080 training actually goes a long way towards improving line art though. Let me grab some test screencaps...

Okay, so here's a raw DVD screencap. I have a few models I've been working on with varying results.

(In case it wasn't obvious, that was upscaled to 1080p for comparison)

Here is my current "hybrid" model, which combines training data from the synthetic G-Gundam downscale, and 0080's DVD and BD versions. It is definitely smooth and perhaps overly sharpened to the eye, but it is the most consistent so far.

This is with the synthetic G-Gundam training alone, which retains the grain, and is naturally somewhat softer, BUT it also sharpens the lines in very inconsistent ways at times. It also doesn't alleviate issues with the older transfer like the chromatic abberation and color bleed. On the other hand, the 0080 training data helps a lot with that, since it compared an older transfer to a newer one.

Lastly, here was my idealistic attempt. Knowing this was a Toei production from around the same time, I figured there is no better comparison to use than the DBZ Dragon Box and the abandoned DBZ Level Sets, which were full of grain.

The problem was that I was unable to find a BDMV or Remux of the Level Sets, so I had to train against a slightly denoised encode. This unfortunately tainted the training, so it removes a shit ton of detail from certain background shots, but it otherwise has a really pleasing look to the outlines (though it doesn't do much anything for the color bleed).

Would this concept work well? Star Wars with mecha?
16 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
I just wanna see more Mecha stuff set outside the Sol System. I wanna see giant robots fighting on strange alien worlds.
Multiple Transformers series do this.
Hasbro tried something like this back around 2008 with their Transformers and Star Wars crossover line. It had characters piloting giant transforming mechs of themselves. I think the idea worked for faceless/helmeted characters like the clones and droids, but the idea of Luke building a giant mech of himself is a pretty silly one.
Notably, these toys weren't designed by the normal Transformers team, which explains their wonky aspects.

It's comic book problems. Just because it doesn't come up doesn't mean it didn't happen, even if that's silly as shit.

Suits that partially or fully showed the face of the actor/actress were occasionally used for executives in Showa series. Bilgenia and Bishum (mutant form) in Black are two of the more notable examples.

Yeah the other player made it and he hadn't used it yet so I figure why not try it out. it's pretty fun, has plenty of cover for both sides to use and advance.

She wasn't bad, but she didn't fit HG either. Just about anything she made was completely out of the style HG was known for
that's not a bad style desu reminds me of like Shin megami tensei games. 100% actually think that looks good but it's not the 'learn to draw anime but with soul' style hg got.

Yeah honestly every Gundam with romance mixed in has been questionable. The only time where it actuall fits was G Gundam, a show with non-war setting.
fucked the police probably
GWitch was set in a non-war setting too but the romance in it was abyssmal.
I thought 0080 did a pretty good job with it.
I would like to, what's a good place to read gundam manga?
