    Just received the £15 3-DVD set from Play continaing the complete series of the above titles.
    I bought it for the kids but the picture quality is a perfect example of a 'before' in the restoration process. The picture is oozing up and down int he earlier episodes and speccles and dirt are waaay too evident on the prints.
    It's going to take restoration before I could class these titles as watchable.
    Pity since I doubt anyone is going to pay for it.

    I already heard that this was deplorable quality. It's a damn shame. Thankfully, restoration software can only get cheaper (to buy and operate) so maybe in a couple of years this will be tip-top.

    "I bought it for the kids" ;) :D

    There is nothing wrong with the picture quality. Unfortunately us Trumponites look like that in real life.

    You've actually had very little of any real worth to contribute to these forums.
    People who register as a character anf the post 'in character' really irritate me.

    pah! I must test a different automated film restore package every year and they only ever manage the easy stuff and even then a moderately competent human being and a decent compositing package would still do it quicker and cheaper.

    Keith,

    I thought some 'breakthrough' pseudo-intelligent restore technology was on the horizon (?).

    yep there's a new one every year!
    Just finished testing the latest one. Took 3 days to render and it still didn't do an acceptable job (trashed the image).

    Now a mate of mine is pretty much painting the whole footage...Hitler archive footage by the way.
