    In this case, the softening has nothing to do with VC-1… The bit-rate is high enough where we wouldn’t expect it.

    There are plenty of sharper looking VC-1 titles out there that do not have this problem: Baraka, Domino, Shoot em’ Up.. King Kong. If you compare this version to the UK version, you’ll see there has been “something” going on. It has nothing to do with the codec…. perhaps the encoder. Call it whatever you want. I call it a crappy BD.

    Thanks for the input, Joe.
    As I said I’m not 100% sure why the soft image and grain reduction. I agree something’s not quite right here.
