Feedback Poll: What brought you here? | Pro’s new side project (no it is not a NEW project)

TheProfileth edit:

In other news, I was talking with Hale recently (before I left on Sunday) and he basically reminded me of a project I was planning on working on for a while. My avisynth filter example compendium, which at this point will basically be like this sort of thing in theory. For example, for the denoising section I take like 80 screenshots from a large number of different shows to gather a wide array of noise patterns and compression artifact types. I then show the effects of filtering on said vast array of screenshots, most likely it will be like
Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 ect… for the total number (more like it will be Option #:filter name)
Each of these will have its own page which not only has the examples and comparisons but an indepth explanation of said filter, its effects and why it is doing what it is doing, the good the bad and the confusing about it. Of course I will also give a nice indepth explanation of the filter’s parameters and such much like my tbilateral write up (atleast similar in level of detail)
The reason I am doing this is because Hale and I basically came to the consensus that new encoders need a proper explanation of filtering as any sort of filter guide at this point is either outdated, just plain wrong, or incomplete (more likely all of those) and sense I have the time and the pedantic attention to detail that has made me a king in the eyes of men made me the experienced encoder  that I am today. The level of insanity in this project will both excite me (sexually and mentally [same thing right? {yes I just did use recursive parentheses}]) but will also cause it to be a LONG project before I will call it complete, infact I don’t think it will ever be call “complete” since I plan on putting every usable filter that I can muster into this; while my grandiose desires of perfection may seem based on a lust for fame or craving to be worshipped, such vague insinuations are in folly . I am doing this because I want to, because I am the only one who ever would attempt such a thing , and I believe that I am the only person who is truly capable of pulling it off; so help me god this wil be done! Also on the agenda a simple and accurate explanation of x264, its components and its parameters that is both easy to understand and accurate.
A final note:
lol Sashamaru for taking my favorite greeting to use on irc and using it as the header xD
no but really I pretty much greet every new person with “what brings you here?” or on occasion “what brings you to this corner of the internet”
Seeing as my word count is now over 550 I know my work here is done. Night everyone, and to all a good night.

Status Update

Here are some project updates

  • Isekai BD 5 is being downloaded
  • Dirty Pair OVA episodes 1-10 have been encoded and just need syncing and QC
  • Slayers episode 1 is being worked on, I am nearly finished with the OP after I finish that, the main episode and the ED and preview and then watch it I will be able to release it.
  • Canaan is being Lazily handled since I don’t really want to work to much on it, might get FMA to prep it for me.
  • In order to make room for more BDMV’s I am encoding a show I most likely will not finish either way I hope I like it.
  • Kyouran’s OP and ED are getting worked on by ColormeKevo (such a nice guy) so that will finally get a real release.
  • Nausicaa is done and just needs QCing and stuffles
  • I guess that is it for now, oh and we might add a poll on the site seeing as there are atleast 4 of you who actually like what I do. Don’t forget to recommend our group to people, just not stupid people, or people I won’t like or people who do bad things and don’t feel bad about it, or people who have stolen candy from babies. On second thought; those last people are fine just no stupid people.

    Operation Torrential Downpour was a success!

    As the title says Operation Torrential Downpour was almost  as  successful as Operation Catgirl Nexus Firestorm.

    We got over 200 downloads in 2 days for Dirty Pair and 24 downloads for Isekai.

    In other news I think I finally found an answer to Slayers further info on this later!

    Dirty Pair OVA – No more DDLs

    Due to Mediafire getting butthurt over Dirty Pair OVA licensing issues, we’re pulling our direct downloads. Please be patient while we migrate our releases to torrents.

    Pro edit: The batch is out on Nyaa, go find it

    Isekai Episode 4

    You know you want some of this^

    Download

    Everyone thank Empo for me returning to Isekai.

    Canaan episode 1

    Wait is over

    Canaan episode 1 is out

    High quality AAC download here

    FLAC version to follow

    And thanks to Empo I decided to pick Isekai back up, am encoding episode 4 right now should be out in a day or so. More Canaan and Dirty Pair soon.

    And we’re back

    Been playing too much Terraria, either way we (I) are (am) back.

    This month I plan on getting Canaan released, there will be 2 versions of it a FLAC version and a high quality AAC version of it converted with the mainconcept AAC converted IE the best AAC converter around (essentially)

    The reason for this is because the FLAC is kind of huge, and FMA1394 was bitching to me about not wanting external FLAC this time, so the compromise was 2 versions. Maybe I will just make the FLAC copy torrent only since we are talking about nearly 1GB per episode. Either way there is that, Red Photon Zillion, some other shows/ovas and maybe even a couple episodes of Slayers to be released this month.
