Well, thanks for the help. I think I'll stick with 18 anyway because it produces a decent filesize for nice quality, although I do notice a change in quality going from uncompressed/lagarith to x264.
Do a frame by frame comparison (Source vs Encode). You can always go lower if you're not happy with the quality.

Original uncompressed



x264 set to CRF 18.0

I can definitely see a lessening of detail (ie. the spartan arm)

I've developed some more powerful presets that get a much better quality/size ratio. They do take much longer to encode. However, if you have the time, it is definitely worth it.

*UPDATED JULY 6th, 2010* After the MeGUI 0.3.5.2 update, old presets have become incompatible, including the one I originally made for the package. I have re-released this quality package with a new preset that has the same settings, and is compatible with the newest MeGUI update. The download link is below.

*NEW* Even more powerful x264 presets:

Quote:
^ Included are 4 presets. Use the one that is closest to your video's resolution. These new presets will get you the same quality at a smaller file size, or better quality at the same file size. They will take much longer to encode. If you have the time, I highly recommend using them; much more efficient in quality/size ratio.

Yeah, the thing about Halo is that it's 29.97 fps instead of 24, and there's TONS of camera movement... so you're going to need more bitrate for Halo 3/Halo Reach HD videos than an HD movie.

The "detail" is noise.

Nevertheless, it's still lost quality.

I just tried using the 1920 x 1080 preset and it went at .35 FPS.... this must be some encoding overnight kind of thing, jesus
