Sooo after months of me basically being unsure if its good or not, here it is.
Im not gonna go into much technical stuff besides mentioning again how shitty the raws were, for the rest in the description.
And also thank you whoever you were, who provided the OPs and EDs from your R2s and gave me some basic info on how to avisynth.
PS probably until december i will have the yorkshin ova up too and maybe the 1998 pilot. Not sure yet about the pilot though.
also im gonna bump a bit
>also im gonna bump a bit
>less than 3 minutes into the thread's life
It doesn't work like that, newfag.
Since you are a content provider I'll tell you outright:
OP can't bump for the first 15 minutes of the thread's life.
You learn more from failure than success.Sank you
Better than S-A, i like to think that, considering all the work i put on it. The best that i will be, depends, there are many people with more experience out there that im sure they could have done a better job at this.
If you'd like to partake in our daily shitposting threads about which is better, then yeah rewatch it.
He would start a shitstorm without his trip and then put it on and start shitting on OP because bitrate is 5000 instead of 5001 and because there's too much grain and because it's not 20 h265 30 bits or some shit.
Thanks OP! I just hope one day we can get BDs too.
Why not watch it for "mah atmosphere"?
Hasn't it been like a year? It feels like the end of an adventure or something.
Thanks for your work anon.
Its licenced by viz though so dont get any hopes...There is also the
floodcase but i think its just viz not caring. Judging by the DVDs as well....
>not even 40 posts in before the 99 vs 2011 shitflinging
>I like 2011 better
You can't be this retarded. It's not just a few shots. It's about the whole environment, music and animation. Why do I bother? Go fuck yourself.
This is a thread specifically suited for 99 vs 2011 shitflinging.
>tfw I can't wait to see Pariston again
it was really touching that he actually really liked Netero
>posting subpar encodings
>copy pasting manga panels because having a competent director is too hard
>still fucking it up and making Meruem's tail clip through the background
You do realize that you're not helping your case by showing that the best Madhouse came up with is to color Togashi's panels and use them as stills to keep production going right?
Why would they need to arbitrarily make new shots when Togashi's panels are perfectly good? I don't get this argument. Yuasa does the same thing and he's the best director in anime.
Guys the manga has stills so it's okay if the 2011 adaptation has them too
2011 tsunami caused some archive loss in studios. Or so the rumor goes
Take pic related for example
No I'm not. 2011 is much better told than that edgy trash.
Stupid faggot who wants to be Gon's center of attention even when he doesn't give a shit about what's happening
Stupid deluded faggot with no morals and no consideration for other people
I think that's the simplest way to put it
its called visual direction ya dip
>that hair in 2011
FUCKING BADHOUSE COPY PASTING PANELS
>2011 is literally more popular than the manga
>arguing about 2011 vs 99 again
Seriously, fuck you guys. Just thank EncoderAnon for his hard work.
Thank you for doing God's work mate.
Thanks for all your work based encoder anon, I'm really looking forward to rewatching this.
I'm sorry EncoderAnon, sorry it had to happen like this.
At least no one is arguing about Pitou's gender.
Also posting some of the shitier episodes since i cherrypicked a bit with my pics earlier
You're not better than them.
Both anime sucks, 2011 is slighty better than 99 just because is more faithful to the source and adapted the best arc.
It doesn't matter if you are 2011fag or a 99fag, in either case you secondaries are not welcome here.
>mangafag being arrogant
enjoy your scribbles you fucking autist. i'll be waiting for madhouse to adapt the dark continent arc.
Mods banned the shitposters. Thank you mods.
Not him, but go kill yourself. I am so fucking thankful Madhouse won't be adapting the DC for at LEAST a decade, I couldn't stand the idea of the arc looking like this
99fags are this stupid.
Is this better faggot? They still look fucking terrible, and Kurapika looks like complete shit in that frame you posted. Epic reddit file name by the way.
Yeah you'd rather have togashis kindergarten scribbles
Kill yourself autist
Yea, i still hadn't changed the title yet. If you look the right one it writes S-A on top
Why would you watch an anime of people talking about politics when it clearly works better in manga form? I bet you actually think the narration worked in the anime too.
Are you blind?
>sexy as fuck.
No, manga Pika is sexy. 2011fag Pika is god awful, they ruined his design.
Why do mangafags even bother?
overall your work is pretty solid, but I can't shake the feel you might have gone a little too strong on noise reduction (or not strong enough on resharpening) in some of these
It flip flops between moods, styles, genres and ways of telling its story. It's actiony, but not as much as other shonen battle manga. It's dramatic and well written, but some parts are a lot easier to digest than others. It's really a bit of a clusterfuck that's hard to detail, in detail, without spelling everything about it out.
If you want to watch it an really find out what it's all about, be patient with it. Everything up to the Yorknew arc is not representative of the work as a whole, but if you like Yorknew then you'll likely like the rest of the show too.
Watch 2011 or 99, they both have their merits. For a first time watching I'd recommend 2011 just so you can go back to 99 and appreciate the difference, because going from 99 to 2011 isn't as smooth a transition.
Or just read the manga. that's good too.
Thats the way many groups went to get small-size encodings. Attempting to keep the grain gets your filesize up. But in these dvds it has its disadvantages.
Especially in the first episodes where the whitness and poor colouring was high, NR took too much detail with it.
In yorkshin where quality is improved, S-A actually looks great.
Cheers. Thank you for your hard work.
I seriously don't understand why they did that
Plus that scene of Gon and Killua throwing food at each other was one of the better animated scenes too. Were they really so important?
The thing is i didnt use noise reduction or sharpening. At all. If i tried to sharpen with the grain, it would just look horrible.
Abit offtopic but since its semi related I might aswell ask:
Why is my MPC "always on top" suddenly?
I thought they removed that feature along time ago, but now for some reason its on for me and I have no idea how I did it.
I cant find any options to toggle it in the settings panel or any hotkey to toggle it.
Now that i checked it, there are like 35 ppl downloading and my seedbox is begining to crack under pressure. Patience is all you need.
>Patience is all you need.
Pretty much. People need to just let it DL in the background, leave their computers on, go to sleep, the swarm will be sorting itself out in a matter of hours.
I'd like to torrent it but I'm on a very old laptop that's only got 20gb of space and that's taken up in SZS.
Any chance of the torrent getting taken up by Bakabt or something?
Is that supposed to be kurapika? Even 1999 did him better
You're right, he stole it a long time ago
>autistic 2011 shitposting is your only argument because you know I'm right
>Gon is considerably weaker than Knuckle
>Gon loses his nen for 30 days
>Morel asks Gon to demonstrate his power/resolve
>Suddenly Gon displays a power that makes Morel terrified
What the fuck?
I just like watching stuff with cats.
Thank you so much EncoderAnon. Will seed for quite a long time.
No it's a foreshadowing for pic related you fucking newfag! Ugh.
Some people seem to have missunderstand the purpose of this version.
This is mostly targeted to the people who hate noise reduction and prefer the film grain in their lifes.
S-A does seem to be sharper, especially in yorkshin where the quality of the dvds is good, cause of the way they treated it, where afrer noise reduction you sharpen the hell out of it.
With grained material you cant sharpen cause it will look like a mess.
Instead i went with contrast(mostly) and colour correction. Some scenes may be darker than they should be. That is the drawback. In the end whether you like it or not its up to your prefference.
There is not much you can do when your source material looks like this
I liked Mizuken, wish we could've seen more of him.
Seedbox is geting ~1.4 up, ill just leave it as it is and go to sleep. Hope it wont die during the night..
No problem, glad you enjoyed it!
Please stop this 99 vs 11 shitflinging. We all love HxH. Please stop this.
>no chance of creating harmony
Seems 2011 fucked up our fanbase a little too hard. Oh well.
Uh, so what? I was responding to two different posts.
Good job, looks pretty great, looking forward to the rest, I think you said some other group did Yorkshin well, but after looking at it they left in a bunch of artifacts so I don't really like their encode.
1. Should have encoded it anamorphic, you have to make sure to adjust the subtitle script resolution so it doesn't get stretched, but by resizing it to 640x480 you just lose detail. Ideally just crop and encode it with --sar 8:9 or 10:11 (have to check round objects to tell which one is correct).
2. I think the red in the opening might be fixable, you have to try some things to see what works, but I've had a similar video issue and resolved it with this (dirty but works):
If I remember correctly. I don't remember if mine had vertical or horizontal red lines though. Otherwise you can apply a mask that will only filter red areas and do some heavy filtering to keep it from leaking, but that is a bit more complicated.
3. Haven't really checked your encoding settings, but why encode at level 3.2? Can you post a couple comparisons between your Avisynth output (through Avspmod) and the final encode at the same resolution? Use the site screenshotcomparison.com to make it easier to compare.
Make sure to archive your scripts if you haven't deleted them yet, I don't think anyone else will bother doing all that color correction work and I don't know when/if blu-rays will come out for this, so maybe you can fix that stuff in a few years when h.265 is good or have someone else do it.
IIRC I said to use anti-aliasing, I don't remember exactly but I guess that's the best option considering the aliasing that occurs often, and I'm not noticing any leftover dot crawl so I guess it's fine, but maybe it makes it look a bit blurrier in those comparisons with S-A (of course they most likely sharpened it a bunch too).
Is that supposed to be an insult? The majority of people here love the source material, don't pretend it's the other way around.
Clearly killuafags and fujos can't handle having their adaptation labeled as "mediocre".
The order of quality from best to worst is manga>99>2011.
Make your judgement based on that, some people would rather get the best experience straight off the bat. But personally I'm glad I watched 2011 first, I got to enjoy it without realizing that it's mediocre compared to the manga and 99, and had more material to look forward to after it.
Madhouse's adaption is more complete for obvious reasons, but they skipped chapter fucking 1 which consequently screws up a major character.
Nippon Animation's adaption is the preferred adaption for most of the arcs it covers, the filler isn't bad.
hold up a second
Understand that some people prefer to fap to ants than to shota.
Fucking fuck, and I just bit the bullet and watched the 99 adaptation not too long ago, with a terrible encode because I didn't know better.
At least I watched it on a CRT, which helped hide some of the shittiness, or at least it felt as if I were watching it on TV back then.
>i'll be waiting for madhouse to adapt the dark continent arc
I guess you are that based anon that helped me, thanks for the tips, i'll keep them in mind.
I went with DeDot for dotcrawl (before the inverce telecine) and used maa2 for anti-aliasing. The antialiasing alongside with a bit of line darkening, helped to get rid of the line artifacts-waves from the dvds.
About the level 3.2 thing, i tested with it and i worked so....
Also the screenshot comp http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/152154
I thought the same myself about the ova after looking at it after i finished with mine, so i decided to do the ova as well. Since i havent got accepted at ADC though it may take longer to find the raws
So I watched the 1999 version and I gotta say, it did the Hunter Exam arc quite better than 2011 version
So what about after that?
Should I go with 1999 till yorknew and then switch to 2011 ver. or immediately switch to 2011 ver.? Did the 1999 ver. take liberties with the yorknew arc and added filler to it or some shit like that?
The strongest point of 99 is yorkshin so i suggest you watch it. Dont bother with greed island though its shit.
After you finish the yorkshin ova switch to 2011
No it does not cover it, its out there though with some search you will find it. On nyaa there are 1-2 batches that have the ova in there
>So I watched the 1999 version and I gotta say, it did the Hunter Exam arc quite better than 2011 version
Ironic considering the Exam arc is the part Madhouse put the most effort in.
99fags are the same people who think that F/SN is better than F/Z.
You're like the genwunners of anime. I'd rather have speedlines and homogenized character designs with a story than the inbred fucktard Gon from 99 and the filler episode shits.
Don't try to derail this thread with fate garbage you mongoloid.
>You're like the genwunners of anime
That's a baffling statement coming from someone who unironically likes fate shit.
You shouldn't use a level, just set encoding settings that conserve fine detail. But dedot didn't catch all the dot crawl in that frame you posted so the encoding actually hides it a bit. Most likely you are losing detail overall, more than needed, but the difference is not so important and definitely looks better than other releases.
You are absolutely correct
I'm a case in point, I like 99 because it's not like the manga or 2011 and allows me to experience an atmospheric adventure without constantly being assaulted with Togashi's insufferable writing.
Which version did this scene better?
1999 left a much greater impression on me, and I watched 2011 first.
They're not even similar
Why can't we just love both?
Almost done downloading. Will seed for a while.
>one of the most widely acclaimed anime ever made
Why does Nick Creamer keep posting here
>one of the most widely acclaimed anime ever made
Naruto has the same standing so your point is automatically invalid
>has a much better story and OST.
>Implying this soundtrack alone doesn't shit in every 2011 soundtrack
It literally defines what being a hunter is
Reinforcement type nen is the one that gives more physical strength to the user body, duh
And Gon, while still not being that good at controlling it, has a really strong nen to boot
Can we talk about how awesome the 1999 TV anime endings are? Because holy shit they're great.
Kaze no Uta is basically about Mito-san and her melancholy (of letting Gon go), but Do you feel like I feel and Hotaru give off this friendship summer vibe (which I'm a huge sucker for).
