Help with tuning encoder for 480p anime

Posted: Wed Jun 24, 2020 11:44 pm
by Momentouri
Description of problem or question:

I am having some issues transcoding some 480p anime into x264. I am seeing some white jagged edges when a character's mouth moves.

Does anyone know how to alleviate these artifacts?

I did notice in the logs:

Code: Select all

[18:57:33] x264 options: Unknown suboption strong-intra-smoothing
[18:57:33] x264 options: Unknown suboption sao
I wasn't sure if that would help, but I don't think they are options on the x264 encoder.

HandBrake version :

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

You're dealing with an interlaced source. The best you can do in this case is to shut down comb detect and accept what you get.

Not sure how you ended up with x265 options for the x264 encoder.

Try using the Decomb deinterlacing filter set to EEDI2. It's slower but slightly better quality for difficult sources.

The x265 documentation is easier to use than the x264, so I was looking through that hoping some options were compatible. In hindsight, kind of stupid.

Turning on Detelecine got rid of most of my issues. I messed around with a lot of the settings and this profile is what worked best for me:

The "veryslow" preset is aptly named, but the file sizes were great and so was the quality, and I'm in no rush.

The biggest issue I ran into was a mismatch in Handbrake versions, I would create the queue file on my windows machine with Handbrake 1.3.3, but the official ppa only had up to 1.2.1 for ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I upgrade to 20.04 LTS and grabbed 1.3.3 and things worked a lot better.

Guess Handbrake is non-semantic and newer minor versions are incompatible with older ones sometimes.

Sometimes, yes. We've tried to make presets forward compatible in that we have code to upgrade older presets, but can't guarantee it 100%. And cross-platform has some quirks.

Glad to hear you got it mostly solved. :)

Presets are not queue files. IIRC we don't make any effort to make exported queues work across any version of HandBrake but the one it is created with. I didn't even know if worked across platforms, that's a nice development.
