Whatever happened to this? You'd think that most Chinese cartoons would be done on HEVC by now, but most of them are still on H.264. Why? Is it because of Daiz?
It doesn't have to look better. Compressing a bit without losing quality should be a huge deal. I haven't used ffmpeg in quite a while, so I don't know how long it takes to fully encode a video.
Shameless self bump with TT's HEVC torrents mostly from >Doki.
So, it's painfully slow?
Making pic related took quite a while on a 3570k OCd to 4.3GHz.
Are you sure you understand the meaning of "high efficiency"?
H265 gives you a smaller file at the same quality and same bitrate. The trade-off is that it takes longer to encode, and older processors that do not have certain features can't decode it efficiently (specifically, special HEVC extensions that are now common on recent ARM/Intel/AMD chips). In those cases, the video player must fall back to software decoding which can make old chips heat up really fast.
If you're a consumer and H265 videos are consuming a lot of CPU power or just plain laggy, you need to buy a newer computer.
If you're an encoder and H265 is taking a long time to encode compared to H264, that's the whole fucking point of H265 and you still need to buy a better computer, or compile FFMPEG to use GPU assisted encoding.
For benchmarking, I have a GTX 760 and it takes me around 10 minutes to encode a 25 minute H265 video, but I usually do so when playing games at the same time to pass the time so eh.
I've never seen anything encoded with HEVC on nyaa.
I just download the S1 of OPM in x265 to compare against the x264 episodes I already have on my PC.
The episodes with both codecs look exactly the same, but the files encoded with x265 only have 1/6 of the size of the x264 files. How does this wizardry even work?
>10 minutes to encode a 25 minute H265 video
Well shit. How does the output fare in comparison? I mean, what about quality and filesize compared to most H.264 encodes out there? ffmpeg's site here https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/HWAccelIntro mention NVENC and I have a 970, which should do fine compared to your 670.
I've got some HEVC shit. philosophy raws uses it, and he(?) does a pretty solid job.
It does use a little bit more processing power, but it really isn't too much of a bother for my machine. I like the reduced file size.
It's a pain in the ass to encode from what I understand, and takes longer than h264. The HEVC encodes I've seen (non-anime, granted) have almost all looked like ass, probably because the encoder wanted to go for the smallest possible size, and the fastest encode.
I'm going to read a bit and reconfigure ffmpeg. BSS's Redline just finished being reencoded, but it took 3hours and about 36 minutes with normal presets and a CRF of 17(I really don't know what I'm doing). The normal present only had a 28% file decrease.
Lossless if anyone wants that.
Finally some screenshot comparisons of >reencodes:
Nice. Good movie too. I had some good ones of the Die Hard series that were in 720p, but beyond that, most that I sampled looked crappy. The edges would be softened and the faces of people would have a weird smudged/airbrushed effect due to trying to squash grain/noise. Or they would be pixelated like shitty Youtube videos. I sampled a couple of Battlestar Galactica and The Wire ones that were just plain hideous.
It's a thing I'm definitely going to watch for in the future as it becomes more common, but right now most of it doesn't look nearly as good as it could, simply because a lot of computers can't handle it, or encoders compress too far.
Yeah, I've gotten my mom some tv shows, and they've all looked like ass when I go to sample them, but whatever she can't tell the difference lmao. Still, I don't want her to have like a gorillion GB storage dedicated to shows because of my videophile tendencies.
I think if an encoder actually takes the time to work on the release it will come out looking nice, but most people just crank it through for e-peen most fastest/downloads
A little late on this, but I went ahead and configured ffmpeg for nvenc. I used their example with a slow preset and a crf of 17 putting out a 321MB video. It looks worse than the one done by the CPU, but it was done marginally faster. Also, the storage savings were pretty shit, we're talking 321MB vs 343MB.
Last I checked, even the 970 and 980 don't have hardware decode for h265. Though oddly enough, the 960 does.
Either way, it's too hard to encode and decode right now to be a decent replacement for what we currently use. If 10bit pissed a bunch of people off, h265 would make files totally unplayable to some people.
>Whatever happened to this
Glad that this shit died. Bad enough, that FLAC is still a fucking thing. No one will hear any difference between mp3 and FLAC. But shit man, lets encode in loseless because fuck it. Fucking dumbass kids.
if Daiz pushed it too hard he'd be making it obvious Nvidia paid him to shill it. I mean shit there are people with toasters still complaining about h264, and now he wants to push something that was designed for Nvidia's underwhelming, overpriced 900 line?
I guess Malyasian cartoons isn't high on the bribe list though. They blow all their money bribing game developers to use Nvidia Gameworks™ The Way It's Meant To Be Artificially Gimped
They could be offering both. They're also offering three different resolutions for h264.
A ten year old computer can play h265 in 1280x720 and the playback is controlled from Crunchy's side.
>You are aware that Daiz controlling the fansub scene is just a retarded meme, right?
I didn't say he control it, just that Daiz is proven shill.
Re-encode was a wrong word. But even then there were groups who re-encoded 10bit to 10bit with smaller size.
What I meant was commie-like group who just rip subtitles and encode the video.
I never tested on 4k but i doubt it make lots of difference. All the trials i made with the h265 had basically the same quality/size ratio of the h264-hi10. And it was much slower. Plus it require more resources to play as well, and is less compatible.
Is simply not worth the effort.
Crunchy doesn't do karaoke.
My brand new computer had trouble with typesetting.
>Still think that FLAC is unnecessary, though.
That's probably because you don't archive. If you are going to make a release with the best video quality you can get it at, you may as well add lossless audio to it as well for archiving purposes. The extra data shouldn't even phase you.
