Beeblebrox Posted January 23, 2022 Share Posted January 23, 2022 (edited) Another recently finished conversion and one of many long runners I'm just wrapping up to post. Thought I'd try and duplicate this stylised comic book style source image as accurately as possible colour wise. (I am often flexible with some of my conversion's colours which can often intentionally differ from the source if the output image looks good. (My Samaurai Tattoo conversions being good example of that). Few line errors down sides of face and in the background. Rightside of face shading could have done with more time. Really pleased with the green text definition and the overall high colour count. Nebula (of Guardians of the Galaxy universe) 3.6 bill evaluation 94 unique colours Filename: Beeblebrox_Nebularcomicsm1_13.xex (Altirra image with PAL high artifacting enabled) Beeblebrox_Nebularcomicsm1_13.xex Source file was reduced to 128 colours RGB lines and saturation, contract and gamma tweaked/image resized to 320*240 in Irfanview, then processed in RC at 320*240 after a few more RC settings were tweaked Settings were: Filter = bicubic; pal = altirra; color dis = yuv; initial state = smart; no of solutions = 20000; Threads = 9; preprocess = yuv; brightness = 0; contrast = 39; gamma = 0.8; dither = none; dither strength = n/a; randomness = n/a; mask value 15 Here is the conversion in progress - mask applied to quite a bit of the image (- colour match pretty close to the source): ..this is what it looks like on my B&O MX4000 CRT running off my 800 via S-video, (again as per previous post colours differ slightly in the image running on this CRT off the stock 800, (ie some pinks look purple, purples look blue, etc)): ...and here on my 10" CRT (800XL UAV rD) where colour match closer to the Altirra screengrab (ignore light reflection left of screen and overexposed shot btw): Edited January 23, 2022 by Beeblebrox 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
