i wish ppl didn't reconvert like this. It doesn't matter what resolution it was animated in, 810p is technically a downgrade, and if there ever is any CG or text, that will be impacted too. Would have been better to just keep original video imo. I don't see the point in downscaling - people who need to save bandwidth or space wouldn't download this anyway.
There is a specific downscale function being used in this encode that resizes the CG or text differently compared to the rest of the video's contents if they have not been upscaled. Through this method, the impact you're speaking of is very small and sometimes even non-existent. Taken straight from the function's documentation: "[The function] masks parts of the frame that aren't upscaled, such as text overlays, and uses a regular resize kernel to downscale those areas. It works by downscaling the input clip to the target resolution with Debilinear or Debicubic, upscaling it again, comparing it to the original clip, and masking pixels that have a difference greater than the specified threshold." I understand your concerns, but if what you were saying is true then no fansub encoder would be doing native resolution downscales... and there are a good amount out there that do. You don't see the point in downscaling most likely because you do not understand how it works.
Well, what is the point then? I think it would be difficult to convince me that it's actually improving the original image. The original is 1.35 gb, it looks great. Regardless of what you do, downscale would technically be an overall downgrade even if not significant. Additionally also subjecting it to lower bitrate. So the only point I see is to save a little bit of space. Other than that, an unnecessary step for little gain. And unlike with CR source, there really aren't any notable artifacts that you can fix at that bitrate. And yeah i disagree with reasoning of most other encodes that downscale 1080 video to some other resolution they looked up on Anibin. It comes off as "I think 1080p is pointless and my script is magic"
You do know that Funimation has hardsubs right? If that's what you're referring to with your 1.35GB claim, then there's your answer as to why Funimation is not being used as a video source. The font that they use for their signs are terrible looking to some people. If you haven't noticed, a few fansub groups are being used as the source for the subtitles, which means there are typeset signs which requires a clean video. CR has that — Funimation does not. I want you to take a 720p video and re-encode it to 1080p resolution and see how good it looks. It'll be watchable, and if you send it to thousands of people without showing them what the actual source looks like, they'll think it looks great. That's what these producers are doing when they send the episodes out for airing in "1920x1080" when it was produced in a different resolution. They have to conform to the standards of television broadcast stations and web streaming services, which is why they don't air shows in weird resolutions. Anibin is also not the only source of finding production resolutions for anime. There is a script out there that you can use to find it yourself as well. Its not just some random guy guessing what the production resolution is by looking at the screen, its actually calculated. Anime is not the same as western media where almost everything is produced in 1080p nowadays, especially live action media. It seems that's your thought process based on your comments, and you're continuing to prove you don't know much about encoding. I can't be bothered to explain the benefits of downscaling to native resolution if you don't know the basics. I used to be like you once when I didn't know shit about this stuff, so I understand where you're coming from. Okay I'm done, no more paragraphs for me lol
