I know it's early days but do we have any feedback on which region/country version of Revenge of the Sith DVD is the best... if there any differences of note of course.
Ive tried both PAL and NTSC dvd's at 720p and 1080i and i cant see any difference.Ryu said:Is it not better to upsacle 576 lines of the ROTS DVD rather than 480 lines? More source information on the ROTS DVD = better upscaling?
"Yawn". The old "PAL-must-be-better-than-NTSC-because-it's-got-more-lines" statement.Dave Mack said:The PAL version should look better, yes? 576 lines vs. 480.
I dont know anyone who has got it yet but its a Fox release and if its anything like the I Robot and Day After Tomorrow R3 releases it should be identical to the R1/2 quality and extra feature wise.Games Guru said:How does the R3 compare? Is the picture worse? I seem to get all R3 dvds ATM, as you save up to a fiver on new releases that way.
Hi Dave,Dave Mack said:Well if pic res. means nothing you could always go back to VHS....
The vertical resolution of VHS is exactly the same as the vertical resolution of DVD (in the same video standard); 576 lines.Dave Mack said:Well if pic res. means nothing you could always go back to VHS....
Exactly. But in the cases above Dave Mack is correct. But... as you say. This is NOT conclusive of DVD in general. Well saidLV426 said:The vertical resolution of VHS is exactly the same as the vertical resolution of DVD (in the same video standard); 576 lines.
What you say about NTSC vs. PAL is entirely true in theory. In practice, and assuming properly set up equipment, it makes so little difference, that other minor differences in
- the disc mastering process
- one's equipment setup and/or its abilities
will in the majority of cases wholly conceal any "benefit" the additional lines of PAL might offer.
In other words, it is not correct to simply conclude that because PAL has more lines than NTSC, then for a given film title, a PAL edition will be better. It may well not be.

Hey Mjeeves! Yep, that's me with the vest. BTW, Paramount came down on the guy who was making them HARD so he had to stop. Interesting that the new "Warriors" looks better in NTSC. It is a great transfer actually. I also hear that the new R1 Titanic looks just a hair sharper than the PAL, but I'm jealous of my PAL buds as y'all get the 4th, (and in the case of the Virgin SE, 5th too!) disc that we were originally promised! You can never have enough Kate, IMHO.
I got the Sith in R1 and it looks very good but the sound could have used a bit more low end, bass in the FX scenes IMHO. But it was great to really hear the music this time.
