**- 1080p -** Audio Track 1 (Default): English 2.0 FLAC Audio Track 2: Japanese 2.0 FLAC Subtitle Track 1 (Default): English Signs & Songs (.ASS) Subtitle Track 2: English Dialogue [UTW modified] (.ASS) Dual-audio remux featuring my own 1080p encodes and modified UTW subtitles. I tweaked the timing of the OP/ED karaoke to be more consistent with fades and scenechanges in the video, restyled the dialogue, reworked some of the TS, removed the 'TS notes' (I thought they looked horrendous and usually didn't add much to the scene) and fixed a couple more errors and scenebleeds that UTW left. I was also able to add italics for all kinds of dialogue that needed it (TV, phone talk, internal thoughts, et cetera) thanks to the extensive work my friend basheer_naimi provided. Similar to Deanzel's release, I opted to use the English 2.0 LPCM 16bit tracks from the UKBD, rather than the AC-3 192kbps ones from the USBD. Everything was synced and encoded to FLAC in Audacity. Video-wise, Fate/Zero is a bit of a doozy. The BDMV contains an outrageous amount of film grain (the most I've ever seen in an anime BDMV), resulting in astronomically high bitrates when attempting to encode it. Episode 15 is particularly brutal. At first I was just going to make a remux using the very best 1080p encodes I could find (which, after a lot of downloading and comparing, turned out to be the 86.4 GB release from Salender-Raws), but upon closer inspection I noticed the encodes suffer from heavy discolorization compared to the BDMV due to very strong chroma denoising. There's also the complete lack of debanding that made me shy away from Salender-Raws. The second best was mawen1250, but the luma denoising was far stronger than Salender-Raws and there was plenty of artifacting and detail loss from a lack of video bitrate. And so, I had no choice but to do my own encodes. The heavy amount of film grain makes for an extremely sensitive source, so I stuck with adaptive BM3D denoising and only targeted bright areas to ensure minimal detail loss. Other filtering includes rescaling, insaneAA, anti-aliasing, some chroma denoising, debanding and dehaloing. 1080p credits, signs and logos were all manually excluded from filters that would otherwise damage them. I experimented a couple of hours with x265 but ultimately wasn't satisfied with the results, so I stuck with x264. Downscaling to 855p didn't look very good either. Perhaps in a few years from now I'll re-do these encodes with AV1, as I do think 96 GB for 25 episodes is pushing it (although interestingly enough, x264 still reported a lot of these episodes as not being transparent). If you want smaller files that offer the same quality, I'm afraid you're out of luck. Any other 1080p release out there is noticeably worse, and there's not many (if any) great native resolution encodes to choose from, let alone x265/AV1 ones. This release wouldn't have been possible without Moodkiller, so big thanks to him for allowing me to encode these episodes with his rig. Enjoy!

Thanks friend.
will you be doing others in the series?
One of my favorite anime series.
Did you cross check it with Noem-light’s modifications?
>Everything was synced and encoded to FLAC in Audacity please just use vfr.py

@akabane - might look into doing UBW at some point @Marche - nope. this batch does not include the specials, and personally I don't care too much about terminology as everyone has different opinions on what to use. @herkz - I'll pass, but thanks
my god... thanks for the hard work you put into these!!!
holy fuck, thankyou so much!!
you're just making the work a lot harder for yourself and probably fucking it up in the process. not to mention audacity is only an option if the audio is lossless. i guess you can't expect much competence from BD subbing groups who never learned how to fansub.
but LPCM is lossless, no?
@herkz Just like you can't expect quality encodes from fansubbers who think "encoding isn't an important process".

> Herkz: I can't find anything to bitch about, so i'll go for how he encodes the audio! Haha, got 'em, i'm so fucking awesome Syncing Aniplex audio in Audacity is not “a lot harder”. Only one small delay is needed for every episode. How many of my projects have English audio that isn’t synced properly? I’ll tell you: none. > not to mention audacity is only an option if the audio is lossless. LPCM is lossless, darling. Please stop trying to make a fool out of yourself.
Poor herkz...
somebody do Comparison please
Do it yourself, you lazy git
Is this worth downloading if I already have Deanzel's release?
