    I told myself I was going to hold off on doing the Simpsons as I spent so long doing the Futurama episodes, though a lot of that was down to me learning the programs really. But, I couldn't resist and did a quick snippet of the Simpsons pilot, and honestly the output is transformative. I need to sit down and rip them all now! I only have up to season 6, and being in the UK getting NTSC copies of the DVDs isn't always the easiest, but I'll at least make a start.

    And thank you you checking that for me. Looking at the DVD, I think it's simply due to the sources and that nothing can be done - horizontal scrolling just doesn't really play nicely with interlaced content, if you take a look at this frame, specifically the stars, you can see where the problem comes from:

    The encodes are such a huge improvement, I just was worried I'd messed them up somehow!

  2. Encoding video such that the improvement is drastic has to be some kind of gateway drug .
