- 1. Get familiar with these Threads - ATV Advanced Settings (DVD Source) & ATV Advanced Settings (HD Source) & ATV 2.x Advanced Settings (All Sources)
2. Understand that we are trying to squeeze as much quality out of the AppleTV while maintaining some sort of balance between Speed and Size (maybe).
3. Be aware, not everything is going to come out pretty. Since Apple isn't providing anything by way of reliable specs, we're (as dynaflash would say) throwing crap at the wall and seeing what sticks.
4. Don't expect perfection, but you may maintain a perfectionist's attitude.
5. Some settings may require you to compile SVN releases. If you don't know how, don't discuss here.
6. If you haven't upgraded to AppleTV 2.x, this isn't the thread for you.
6a. AppleTV software hacks add too many variables. If you hacked yours, don't complain if something doesn't come out right.
7. Cabac stays on. There is no need to be here if you insist on using :cabac=0
8. Minimal subq setting is 6. This is a pro PsyRDO thread.
9. This is a CRF thread. ABR is too "safe" for us.
10. Try at you own risk! If your AppleTV catches your house on fire during quick pans, we are not responsible!
11. Use Code Blocks!
12. DO NOT HIJACK THIS THREAD! I refuse to go through all the effort of splitting off posts of those that can't follow rules. If you hijack, your posts will be deleted and you will be banned for a week.
Ok, all of that said...
I asked a question earlier this month about the images below: "Can you tell which capture is from a..." Well the answers are below each image.
Original DVD (via dvd.app)
Code: Select all
Code: Select all
The point I was trying to make was we are now approaching a point of transparency when in reference to DVDs. If this is indeed the case, then one would now focus on the Size of said encode or the Speed of the encoding.
Personally, I believe the Original DVD image looks worse (washed out), while the middle (62%) looks the best.
