Not accurate to anything? Not at all to the general nature of differences between the two transfers?
When I look at the screen caps the differences I can note are:
US VERSION: Warmer color hue, less purple-toned than the French version.
US VERSION: Brighter, punchier, richer contrast - the French looking more faded.
US VERSION: Less image noise.
US VERSION: Less sharpening/artifacts.
FRENCH VERSION: has vertically stretched image vs the US version.
These are differences I see between the two transfers ONLY drawn from looking at the screen caps.
Are you saying these are not, in fact, the type of difference one will actually see in the real transfers? Is that list just totally inaccurate?
If that list DOES to some reasonable degree mirror the differences between the two transfers, then I'm sorry you are wrong. The screen caps WOULD convey real information about the differences between these two transfers. Hence your railing about inferring anything from screen caps being ludicrous would be going overboard, and they would have some accuracy in portraying the differences between the two prints.
