Digital Video vs Digital HD Video
« on: February 28, 2020, 01:52:04 PM »
Dumb question, but if all I'm doing is burning these VODs to standard DVDs, and the .iso file is the same size for both standard and HD, there isn't any sense in purchasing the HD, am I right? Especially with something as high quality (lol) as Velvert Smooth. I guess there is a difference when playing the file from a hard drive maybe on a large TV, but I can't imagine it's going to look much better than the standard DVD quality, considering the source material.

Correct, the iso file is the same.

The HD for Velvet Smooth will look better, despite the artifacts (and that's AFTER restoration), because it came from an actual film transfer so all of that color and picture data really is there.

Most of the HD material that we've been releasing for the past few years have come from film sources, so will look better when you play it on a TV as opposed to upscaling the SD file.

Good info, thanks!
