"Do or Do Not... There is no try."

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Oh no, I totally agree that trying to do something may help a bit. It would show that interest is still there after all these years. Hell, Mighty and Ray made a return.

Better to try than do nothing.

He personally may not like them, but if their were some form of collab effort to gather hand written letters, artwork, and products from all over as a yearly effort to get his attention things might move.

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 03:24 PM)

I would imagine the best way would be to go through Aaron, who is a SatAM fan, but there might not be much he can do

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 03:23 PM)

And I'm pretty sure he doesn't like the FF

The only one that seems friendly to the US fans is Iizuka-san

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 02:32 AM)

It would also mean a great investment to capitalize on a untapped western market of american characters for american fans...that is, if SoJ would ever allow it.

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 01:00 AM)

Because the Archie comics kept the SatAM cast current for so many years their are many fans that would be more than willing to pay good money for seeing them in some official capacity. If only their were a way to find out who to talk to and how to reach them.

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 12:59 AM)

I been thinking. Who is the most key essential person in Sonic Team who is friendly to US fans? Whoever he is would be the key essential person to find and target to bring attention to our fanbase and that their is a market for it.

Pat does theater work in LA from time to time. She's mostly retired.

@  Shadow : (19 July 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Would a 4K transfer blu ray be possible to produce?

@  Quickster : (19 July 2019 - 12:20 AM)

Unless we were able to somehow contact Pat Allee.

@  furrykef : (18 July 2019 - 09:23 AM)

Possible it was mostly Pat Allee's script. Unfortunately there's no way to know who did what on each script.

@  Shadow : (16 July 2019 - 12:00 PM)

I remember when Ben Hurst came onto this site and we got to send him notes. My favorite episode was Sonic and Sally, since it was my first episode I ever saw. Unfortunately he did not remember working on that one, despite it being his script.

@  chief : (14 July 2019 - 07:41 PM)

Yeah I did get it. Came out nice. Kinda a neat read.

 

I do want to scan it but...I dont want to fold the paper. I might try just taking some high def pictures.

@  David The Lu... : (12 July 2019 - 08:50 PM)

Heck did you get it in the mail. More importantly, have you scanned it yet because things like that need to be scanned and preserved.

I'm currently experimenting with an upscaling of some Sonic Satam frames. Since at the moment there is still no actual Blu Ray release of a cartoon, I decided that it’s better to make the HD version of the animated series (or at least some frames from it) by myself. Some results impressed me a lot, the upscaling of these frames turned out much better than I expected and I dare to say, that these upscaled frames look like they were scanned directly from 35mm negative. I hope you will like what I did.
All frames were upscaled in Topaz A.I. Gigapixel programm:

4x times scaled frame

Unfortunately, Topaz A. I. Gigapixel is very limited in its functionality. Unlike the Waifu2ix program, you will not be able to upscale several pictures at once or at least to place a folder with speciffic images in Topaz Gigapixel. I hope that the developers will release an update which will solve this issue.

If you wanna see more, you can download my complete archive of upscaled frames:

Wulfsbane, thank you! I'm also impressed with Topaz Gigapixel's upscaling. The only thing we have to wait for is the possibility of upscaling several frames at once instead of only one image at a time. I personally would like the developers to create a video plugin based on this program, but this is just my dream :}
