Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu. BDs Volume 1

720p | 1080p

Let’s do this. Special thanks to lyger for the particle effect on the title logo and me for everything else.

A couple of notes:
* Thuearle is now Twoearle because there is significant evidence that this is the official spelling of her name.
* I’m trying out 4:4:4 chroma sampling (aka “Hi444PP”) for the 720p as it looks considerably better. You shouldn’t need to do anything out of the ordinary to decode it if you’re using the recommended CCCP setup.
* The 1080p includes the commentary as a second track, but it isn’t subbed.

    Pls no memerino, brb downloading CG release with based [P] subs.

    4:4:4 10 bit is the wave of the future.

    • Xythar says:

      For 720p, yeah. Not much point in using it for 1080p when the sources are still 4:2:0 though.

      • Chibi Goku says:

        It’s also pretty much pointless if the anime is grainy and there are not that many red details.
        Anyway… if you’re going the extra mile to keep all the chroma information you may want to consider an inverse kernel resize, judging from the screenshot it probably has not been used.

          http://privatepaste.com/02821d0d0b Actually, he did.

          jk apparently he didn’t in the end

          • Malific says:

            Lol you guys are talking about this, and I just spent 5 minutes moving the mouse on and off that comparison and I can’t see any difference in the two at all..

            One of the many reasons I stay out of discussions about encoding.

            • magma says:

              I had to move to 20cm distance to my 24″ Full HD monitor to see the difference and I am still not sure if it is really better or just different.

              And while my Atom 330 was barely fast enough to decode 720p Hi10P videos, it no longer is for Hi444PP.

              • Xythar says:

                The Atom 330 is over six years old. I recommend the Intel NUC if you’re looking for a small, powerful media PC. Mine handles 10bit 1080p without breaking a sweat – you’ll probably notice everything else runs a lot smoother too.

        • Xythar says:

          I tried it for a bit (probably for that comparison too) but I got rid of it for the final encode since I didn’t see the point in using inverse kernel for upscaling.

          • Chibi Goku says:

            I meant for the luma downscale, I agree it’s pretty pointless to use if for chroma (and probably something like spline/blackman + good sharpening is overall better than inverse kernel upscale), but for luma, al long as there are no details >720p it’s pretty good.

  3. Coburn says:

    Anything else apart from x264 tweaks to mention in the BluRays? No specials or OVAs?

    • Xythar says:

      Not besides the commentary and creditless OP/ED, no.

      IMS barely managed to deliver the show itself, so I wouldn’t hold my breath for extra content.

  4. Roadi says:

    I spent about 3min trying to find the “considerable” improvement with my face 10cm away from the screen; all I managed to find was a very slight sharpening of sharp color boundaries, and the only noticeable portion being with the red-black interfaces.

    Where’s the “considerable”? Or is it that my screen just fails?

    • Xythar says:

      Yes, the colours are sharper. It’s particularly noticeable on the red.
      From an encoding standpoint, it’s considerable.

  5. jameshriz says:

    will this be commie’s new standard?

    • Xythar says:

      There are several people who encode BDs for Commie. I’m just one of them and I tend to do whatever.

    • herkz says:

      we don’t really have one

      also, 4:4:4 has been used before (inugami). we just didn’t say anything and no one seems to have noticed!

  6. Blackkat says:

    What is the “recommended cccp setup” by the way? Just out of curiosity.

  7. Name (required) says:

    Just curious: Am I the only one not seeing ANY difference between those two screenshots?

  8. Anon-nohonorificsallowed says:

    oh god yes epic memes and twintails in glorious hd I came so hard that I blew a hole in my ceiling and now my ceiling is leaking a mixture of jizz and rain

    remake with good budget and animation for proper action scenes and over the top twintail love when?

  9. KannuCore says:

    Is KanColle confirmed? If you are gonna do it I mean.
