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
Yeah... it's way better though.

You don't need the 1080p bitrate... change that shit to like 4500 kb/s

I know, but still, I just wanted to see how it turned out.... and it turned out awesome.

I know 4500-5000 kb/s is where Dazzle quality gets translucent, but I couldn't help myself. It looks a lot better than setting it to CRF 18.0 though.

If you keep all the settings the same and change the bitrate to 4500-5000, it should look nearly identical. You don't need more than that for powerful x264 encoding on SD.

Ok, I will. I used the wrong word, I meant translucent.

Just for kicks, the difference between the uploaded file and the uncompressed, deinterlaced avi:





guess which one is which (no filename looking! )

Everything I read when I was studying x264 encoding said that lowering the "deblocking thresholds" and "deblocking strength" to a value between -1 and -3.

However, after some more testing I think the default, which is 0, gives the most natural feel for Halo.

I've updated the front page with those Ultimate presets. They are the exact same as before, except the Deblocking Thresholds and Strength are bumped back up from -2 to 0.
