    MPV Made Easy (Moodkiller Edition)

    gee if only there were a naming scheme where that wasn't an issue :3 but srs this actually looks cool and saves me the effort of doing it myself. thanks Moodkiller. there would be a heart at the end of that but it automatically transformed it into an emoji so I had to kill it. Sorry =(
  3. honestly the most important change really. now all of you can see hibiki in her full glory.

    Best subtitles for Nichijou?

    it's a little awkward, there's not really a good place for questions like this at the moment. We're thinking about changing this board to be more of a general release discussion area, since encoding is just one part of making a good release and there's so much more to cover than that. Anyway, to answer your question, I'm not really sure but I'd almost certainly go with Underwater-Commie at a glance. I haven't watched the series though.

    BD 1440 x 1080p Black Bars...

    I do that all the time, and that's precisely the difference I was pointing out =P However, I've just done a little bit of research (which really wasn't that hard, please try googling this stuff, there's a ton of useful info out there), and found this tidbit. While it was written for DVDs, it was linked by a Kodi team member with very heavy experience in encoding who stated it is still relevant to BDs today, since it's still MPEG-based compression (albeit quite advanced from those days). source: http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/menc-feat-dvd-mpeg4.html so yeah, you should be cropping down to the actual size of the video.

    BD 1440 x 1080p Black Bars...

    You should be encoding the video to its actual size. So, in this case, 1440x1080, not 1920x1080. The reason for this is due to how players will format the video. I don't have any improperly formatted videos on hand right now, so this is just a fake example, but consider this: If you have a 4:3 video and you play it in MPC or similar, you get this: However, if your video was encoded to 16:9, despite being a 4:3 video, you'd get this: (this is probably the wrong size but you get the idea) If your video is encoded to the wrong aspect ratio, players will display incorrectly since they don't realize what the video should actually be sized as. This isn't necessarily an issue, but it can be depending on the player. I'm sure there's other technical reasons why you shouldn't but this is one of the easiest ways to explain it visually, so there you go.

    The CTR Muxing Standards Guide

    Channel count (and all tags in the filename) should come from the default track. So if your mkv has multiple video tracks, you'd only use the info from the first track, same for audio, etc. This applies even if the track counts differ (very common for anime). Most Funimation releases will be 5.1 audio for English and 2.0 for Japanese. The filename should only include the 5.1. Along these lines, you also wouldn't factor in channel counts for commentary tracks or other tertiary tracks.
  13. I actually really like the flower petals in Yurikuma Arashi's OP on my release, and the beat visualizer in the ED. especially since the ED is just a static picture, having KFX on that one is fun and harmless since there's nothing else going on. check those out if you haven't yet.
  14. honestly forgot those even happened, now I feel like a terrible person! I didn't include KFX since it's not a requirement to produce a worthwhile release, while the rest of those steps are absolutely necessary. a lot of us don't really care about KFX, as blasphemous as that might be in fansubbing =P
  15. aren't you glad we're becoming a real fansub group :^)
