View Full Version : Would the show even look good on Blu-Ray?

I recently went through a couple of season 1 episodes on DVD, I have a pretty optimal set-up with a PS4 and a decent TV. There was someone here who'd like to purchase the series on Blu-Ray but hasn't because there aren't any Blu-Rays of this show. However, after re-watching episodes on DVD I question wheter or not the show would look good on Blu-Ray.

I noticed that textures typically looked pretty plastic and blurry in close-up shots. Not to mention that the faked assets (Matte paintings? I don't know what to call them) are way more obvious, don't quite in the way they're supposed to. Problems like these can't be because of my set-up or even the quality of the DVD, they're just there regardless and might actually be worse on Blu-Ray.

No it wouldn't be worse on Blu-Ray because it was made in HD to begin with. They simply compressed it to fit on DVD therefore degrading the quality so yes, we would benefit from a Blu-Ray release.

Has anyone compared the HD quality to the DVDs?

I downloaded what is supposed to be the 1080p versions and there definitely is a difference but oddly enough, they're not true 1080p so it doesn't look super crisp like most Blu-Rays.

Yeah, that certainly sounds weird.

I think it's slightly less width wise so it's not full 1920p

It would look great on Blu-Ray since the show was made in HD, I been watching the show in HD on Nickelodeon ever since.

Season 1's animation in particular is probably going to age the worst as the years go on. I remember a lot of criticism when the show first started of the CG "looking like a PS2 game" which we know is nonsense, but still it did give off a videogame-y vibe for a while.

The animation for the Nick cartoon seemed to have gotten a boost around mid-Season 2 I recall, and then again at the beginning of Season 4.

You should change your username to Baxter Stockman. Oroku Saki couldn't give two ***** about PC specs.

I already killed Yoshi in real life there is no reason to kill him again in a video game.

Instead of making three separate posts in a row because you're quoting three different posts, would I suggest that you put all the quotations in one post like this? It makes threads easier to navigate in the future.

The Shredder is much too busy to multi quote. His secretary is off for the day.
