  1. I also love it when the karaoke matches effects that were applied to the text in the actual credits. A great example is PAS's subs for Land of the Lustrous. Starts off with a bubble effect while Phos is floating underwater and then transitions to multicolored polygon shards. Of course, it lags MPC so much they had to put a disclaimer on the torrent description that says it should be run in MPV only. Works fine for me in Plex though.
  2. Are you looking for something more advanced than this? Because that's a pretty quick and easy script, but still looks pretty nice IMO. I have no idea how DDY and FFF do particle effects like smoke/confetti/sparks/etc. (though I'd love to learn...)
  3. What's your biggest bottleneck right now? Just trying to get a sense of what you're looking for.
  4. ??? This is actually pretty great. Thanks for sharing! Seems to work fine for me in Tampermonkey.
  5. Query re: Content Distro Rules and Guidelines

    Just my 2 cents... but that feature sounds like a nightmare to me. People who are not socially-inclined to begin with are not likely to contribute anything of value if they are required to participate. I usually Follow all the threads for the releases I download so I can keep tabs on any further developments with the release, such as patches, or any meaningful conversation I may find interesting and might want to reply to. But it drives me crazy when I get a notification and it's just someone saying "Thanks" with no other contribution to the conversation. Especially when it's a 2-year-old thread and the original creator might not even be active anymore. I don't consider that to be "user participation", or at least not desirable participation. I wish there was a way to discourage one-word replies while still making the uploader feel appreciated. This is why I usually stick with the Like/Thanks button rather than making a reply, unless I have something else to say in addition to "thanks".

    frost = Beatrice, yes? Also if you would like QC/grunt work assistance with AoTJH let me know. I'm looking forward to completing my collection (at least until season 3 comes out ).
  7. My only real issue with it is that it doesn't even have the slightest hint of an ending/resolution, which knocks it down a good 2 points in my view. I've only given 10/10 to 4 anime and those have all had beautiful cathartic conclusions, which seems to be extremely rare in anime.

    Upload in progress: https://mega.nz/#F!QTQSCB7T!wYP-FHOUkAtuuJ5gQoay_Q ... ... ... @Scyrous Upload Complete! A note on the episode 12 commentary- I took this from a separate file, the Episode 12 Video Commentary. This has a 5-second Funimation logo at both the beginning and the end that are not present in the episode proper, so these will need to be cut out to get the commentary to sync up.

    I just resumed that one, but I'm not seeing anyone connected to it. Also my connection blows, and I often find that people have trouble connecting to me, and vice versa. I'll start uploading the audio to mega.
  10. A call for donations

    How difficult would it be to re-implement the funding meter that used to be on the sidebar? It would help donors stay on top of it before the situation becomes dire. It would also help guide how much of a donation is needed because you can continuously see the speed at which donations from other people come in.
  11. The CTR Muxing Standards Guide

    Awesome guide! As a Plex user, I've always appreciated your naming convention, and I'm happy that a few others here have started using it. I agree that TheTVDB is not ideal (especially for Monogatari holy shit), but IMO it's the best we've got. As for the internet connectivity argument, this thread is all about sharing media with strangers over the internet. Presumably, if you're acquiring a CTR release, you have internet at that time. Once you add it to Plex or Kodi, it connects to TheTVDB once and pulls the data it needs and stores it locally. After that, you can take your computer offline if you want and you'll have your permanent local archive complete with episode titles, synopses, airdates, production staff, series/season artwork, episode screenshots, etc. Have you already tried JMkvpropedit? You can tag all your tracks a lot faster, and there's a log at the end so you can verify that it was able to update everything successfully. The only issues I have with it are: A recent update to Windows 10 stripped it of the permissions it needs to modify files, but running it as an Administrator fixes this. If you try to modify a track that doesn't exist, it will error out on that file and won't update anything. For example, if you've got commentary tracks on just 3 episodes and you try to set the title of audio track 3 on the entire batch, only the episodes with a track 3 will be updated, including changes to video/subtitles/attachments. So I just leave off any extras when I do the full batch, and then do a smaller batch with just the episodes that contain commentary afterward. Also, a few questions: Would it not be beneficial to have consistency in the track names? In your example, you've got the group tag for the audio and subtitles at the end, but for the video it's at the beginning. Plus the video track includes information about the audio, which seems odd to me. Would you consider some standard rules for track naming when modifications are made to the original source? I've seen some people use something like "FFF-Modified" when all they did was delete lines of dialog to make a signs track, or just retimed it to match Beatrice or something like that. To me there's a big difference between that and actually correcting errors that existed in the original source, or adding missing signs, or swapping out the kfx. Also, people often tag subtitles with a group that is actually a modification of another group. For example, a lot of old Shiro releases credit Final8 for the subs, which were often a 1080p BD resample/edit of someone else's 720p TV subs. Maybe it's being too nitpicky, but IMO it would be nice to know what to expect by looking at the media info since not everyone does detailed descriptions. How would you name an audio track that you ripped from the BD yourself? FLAC 2.0 [CTR]?

    Agreed. It's really good so far but who knows if it'll stay that way.

    @_Akshay_ This site was pretty good for comparing subs for newer stuff: https://fansub.co/ Ex: https://fansub.co/made-in-abyss/ Looks like it's gone inactive recently though.

    I used to be like this. I still prefer dubs if they're available, but there are too many amazing shows that will (in all likelihood) never be dubbed. Monogatari is what finally pushed me over the edge. Now for new stuff I usually always watch subbed unless it's being simuldubbed, and even then if the show is really good I often get impatient and watch ahead with the sub.

    Maybe the poll should just have the top 5 most-nominated shows. That way people who nominated shows that have no chance of winning can vote for their second-favorite and the outcome would be less predictable.
