My jury is most certainly still "out" on this product (1080P "Pro").
First batch scanned. PC viewing presently.
What's up with the insane artifacts??
It appears at first blush that their codec is exceptionally LOSSY.

I "upgraded" to a Wolverine Pro because of my concerns regarding the construction (and flaws) in the original Wolverine.

Frankly, I'm a bit underwhelmed on the video performance of the Pro. I too sometimes see quite a few artifacts in some of the movies I've converted. I sure wasn't expecting 4k video performance, but the digitized videos don't appear to be any better than that from my first Wolverine.

There are some very experienced folks out here in the original Wolverine thread. Some have updated their codec, done some mild hacks, etc. Maybe they can share their thoughts:
