    Mill Creek DVD sets bad aliasing (jaggies)

    Recently started my Season 2 Mill Creek set and noticed some pretty bad aliasing (jaggies) in many of the episodes. Some are much worse than others. Is this inherent to all the DVD transfers? Is this also in the BCI sets or did Mill Creek use the same masters?

    Very disappointing and distracting. Here's a screenshot from episode 66 (Season 2)....like I said, some episodes are worse than others.

    Bad aliasing? What is that?
    Try to reach inside of me, try to drain my energy
    Let me show you just what I'm made of
    Simple curiosity trying to take a bite of me
    Let me show you just what I'm made of now...

    Talking about Jaggies--its when lines-- straight or curved --any lines become jagged, pixelated or stair step-like. Like a video game is the easiest way to describe it.



    Nowadays the conversions are usually solid, but you do get some dvds that don't play well on blu-ray players and hdtvs and creates this effect.

    Well I know the he-man DVDs are 480i. Some episodes are virtually free of jaggies, so I think it's actually in the encode on the disc and not my equipment.
