* The "Bugville" DVD release of MrBugGoesToTown was apparently a raw transfer from an old laserdisc of the film, and it shows; marred by atrocious digital compression that makes it painful to even look at--you would think you were watching a ''bootleg'' of it, and it's supposed to be a official release! Fortunately, there is no interlacing and dvnr issues otherwise.

* The 2008 release of ''Film/{{Patton}}'' on Blu-Ray had a smudgy look to the picture, caused by overuse of DVNR. Fortunately, a remastered version popped up in 2012, which fixed the problem. * ''Film/{{Gladiator}}''[='=]s original Blu-Ray release was overly sharpened, with very different colors thanks to the contrast being changed. A remastered version appeared later, which managed to fix these problems.

* The Blu-ray release of ''Film/{{Selma}}'' [[http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Selma-Blu-ray/122431/#Review came under fire]] by Blu-ray.com over its "pale and fatigued" transfer. The site pointed out that some of the shots had smudge on the edges and that the color was a poor blend of light sepia, pale blacks and flatness. While the transfer wasn't considered abysmal in terms of video quality, this was a film from ''2014'', and one would expect a film that has a 99% rating on Website/RottenTomatoes to get a more exceptional transfer.

** To make matters worse, the only DVD release of the original theatrical cuts (released as limited edition extras) were completely phoned in, raw transfers off of old laserdiscs of the films, which had excessive grain, low contrast, serious aliasing, and motion smearing. (Motion smearing is when moving objects are blurred and leave behind a trail of their own shape due to DVNR--inexcusable, considering that far better THX remastered transfers had been made and released of them in the past.

* The ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' "orange brick" season sets by Funimation.

Creator/FUNimation's marketing even lied about some of the changes, like [[BlatantLies representing the original footage on the DVD extras using some of the remastered footage with artificial grain added]]; they also were convinced that [[ViewersAreMorons viewers would enjoy 10% of overscan instead of 25% of the original image.]] Fans were outraged because not only were Japanese [=DVD=]s remastered frame by frame from first generation masters, but this was the first consistent video release by Creator/FUNimation ([=FUNi=] had actually cancelled the final releases of the previous [=DVD=]s to make way for the new remastered sets).

* The 2004 ''Franchise/StarWars'' [=DVD=]s, despite being billed as digitally restored, received ''terrible'' color correction, de-saturating the soft colors of the original films into darker, more realistic lighting, and much of the clarity and detail of the original prints is lost in the process. A comparison on [=YouTube=] that is no longer available claims this was the result of Lucasfilm ordering the color correction of the films to be done in a breakneck pace of ''30 days''. ** Darth Vader's lightsaber becoming pink is a particular standout for ridicule.

It bears noting that DVNR line damage is a ''very'' common problem among cartoon DVD releases. The reason for this is because the program was designed to remove scratches and dirt from older films by comparing adjacent frames and taking elements from another frame to remove damage. While this works fine for a live action film, in animation (especially animation shot on ones, or one new drawing per frame) the DVNR process can easily mistake details or linework as dirt or scratches, and can accidentally delete whole details from the drawings as a result if the process isn't properly used. Grain Smoothing is also considered to be a serious liability in restoring old cartoons, since it can likewise snuff out details or linework if used carelessly. * Happy about your WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes [[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition Golden Collection sets]] and [[ClassicDisneyShorts Walt Disney Treasures]] stuff, as well as Disney's restorations of their films? If you're a hardcore animation fan, you probably aren't. The short collections by both studios frequently abuse the infamous DVNR process (Digital Video Noise Reduction) which either thins out or erases lines of artwork, and oversaturates the colors to the point where they lose their original contrast and/or start bleeding into each other. And while Disney's films don't use the DVNR process, they do have many noticeable problems ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'' in particular has had the dark pumped up considerably, which destroys much of the original color contrasts. The blu-ray release also has some bizarre color alterations, and some shots have obvious grain-smoothing problems.
