If the "cels" are all the same size, then what is the point of setting them to a higher resolution? If animation rarely has details that minute, why even do it? So it looks better on large displays?


Yes. I'd rather native 1080 than something lower scaled up to 1080, especially when as you say "cels" are the same size so it doesn't matter anyways so why make it worse for the end consumer?

Computational power maybe more but I've done video editing for a living and worked with people doing composting on projects. It's a myth that it's like impossible to work in 1080p. We were doing it like 4 years ago. You don't need some $4,000 PC to do it. Some sub $1,000 Best Buy computer could handle it.

Sentai's release, assuming otherwise, were based upon the HD upscale masters used for the Japanese release. (and yeah, I'm guessing, too, that it's the end credits to blame for making this release 1080i. Could've just reduce the framing to 24fps with deinterlacing to make it 1080p)


To make it progressive, the ED should have be animated at 23.97fps being with to avoid the variable frame rate. If you deinterlace the ED you get 30p, but then what do you do with the episode that's in 24p? The whole thing was telecined so the 24p and 30p parts playback properly together.

Even if we assume off-the-shelf grannyputers could handle it in the timeframes required, there's still the fact that you have to upgrade the entire pipeline to get it done, from monitors(I doubt your Best Buy special could even display 1080, let alone the resolutions needed to have space left for tools), to storage, to the network, to the input(especially expensive if using drawing tablets). Even if you can get the rendermules cheap, the rest is going to cost you an arm and a leg.

I remember at a Madman panel a few years ago and one of the questions was about a re-release of the TV show, and the answer was that they have to wait until Rebuild is done before they can get the rights again, so that maybe the reason.

That seems to be the official version, and it seems reasonable enough to me that since Khara and Co. are focusing all of their energies on finishing the Rebuild movie series, they don't have the time to oversee a high-definition re-release of the original TV series and movies right now.

Seriously, though, even if the rumors of a falling out between Anno and Gainax are true, when it comes to releasing new Evangelion Blu-rays that are sure to make them a boatload of money, does anyone really think they wouldn't be able to come to an agreement?
