| The issue isn't getting rid of EE, it is applying the filter correctly. |
Scott: I am somewhat concerned that, as a reviewer for HTF, you don't appear to understand the whole issue. Most important: It's not a "filter", it's not a single step in the DVD creation process that causes these issues.
If the high frequencies that deliver image detail weren't rolled off, then sharpening would either not be required at all, or could be applied at a level that doesn't cause serious EE or halos. If people then want a sharper image, they can crank the sharpness control on their TV, or use the DScaler sharpen filter, or take any other required steps to increase the sharpness in the display chain. But, once a bad transfer with EE and a lack of fine detail is created, every purchaser of the DVD has to live with it forever!
I would hope that you, and anyone else that is following this thread, have read this thread:
from end to end. And then, read it again, and again.
We have a number of talented people who live the DVD creation process every day participating in this referenced thread, along with HTF Forum members who are providing input to them, and we still don't have a good grasp on where the process is going astray and why.
It's being worked on, but there is apparently no simple solution.
