  1. Hi! I am new to VideoHelp and new to Avisynth.

    I'd like help on knowing how to filter anime like this.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sw8uC1xxcEw
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGQCPOMcYJQ&t=1s

    The lines look pretty sharper and much detailed there.

    BTW, I am sure this is really filtered hence the HD remaster and the Blu-Ray don't look like this.

    Thanks for any help in advance!

  2. Both are blocked in my country (US). Surely you're not planning on trying to restore some garbage you got from YouTube? You have your own copies of the DVD or Blu-Ray?

    Upload a sample from your DVD. You can use DgIndex to mark a representative segment and demux it as an M2V file.

    Those screen shots are terrible. They're way oversharpened and have no real detail.

    Any country besides USA.
    This one might look better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NjWRPlK7Tqk The edges are more detailed there. (This was on my bookmarks from ages ago so it's unlisted.)

    Also, DVD-Rips. Not DVDs.

    Sample (I had this already cut in my PC) https://mega.nz/#!Mf5nDYCI!AXHyD9dcr3UmSK-S5V3otC4QwU7LDyRBeZ6rj5WYIH4

    DVD is not HD. It's either DVD or HD. Can't be both.

    DVD is never AVC encoded, dude. DVD is MPEG only.

    So your sample isn't a DVD rip. it's a re-processed and lossy re-encode from another source. And the frame rate is a little off (23.956 fps ??).

    Other than the usual lossy degradation, what's the problem? Restore the sample to what format?

    He's using DVDRip in the warez sense. It started out as a DVD and someone else reencoded it and uploaded it and he then illegally downloaded it to try ... what? "Restoring" it when he knows next to nothing about AviSynth?

    So, I tried downloading the much-too-large sample and after 87MB:

    "[Exception... "Out of Memory" nsresult: "0x8007000e (NS… "

    This has become more trouble than it's worth. I pass.

    The download took a few minutes and was 347MB. Oddball frame rate (23.952 fps) oddball audio sampling (96KHz). When smart rendered with VideoReDo or TMPGenc the whole business totals 83MB instead of 347MB (???).

    Attached is the first half of the jumpy download I got, smart rendered with TMPGenc, and a .txt MediaInfo report on the original 347MB download for comparing. How many times is Sailor Moon going to make the rounds?

  9. Levels adjustments, mild white balance, temporal noise reduction, deshake, upscale, sharpen, etc. The deshaking isn't very effect because of the way different parts of the picture move differently (bad deinterlacing? bad film transfer?), you might be better off without it. The string temporal noise reduction will likely cause problems in panning shots with low contrast detail.

    HD is the youtube video. Not the DVD.

  11. The script I used:

    Code:
    LSmashVideoSource("Preview.mp4") 
    
    ConvertToRGB(matrix="PC.601").RGBAdjust(r=0.92).ConvertToYV12(matrix="PC.709") # white balance, left a little warmth
    ColorYUV(cont_y=35, off_y=5, cont_u=30, cont_v=30) # levels and saturation adjustments
    
    dehalo_alpha(rx=2.5, ry=2.5) # halo removal
    
    TemporalDegrain(SAD1=200, SAD2=150, sigma=8)  # noise reduction
    #Deen() # alternate noise reduction, needs tuning
    
    Stab(range=8, mirror=15, dxmax=1, dymax=1) # deshake
    Dup(blend=true, threshold=3) # make near duplicate frames exact duplicates (attempt to remove some shaking)
    
    MergeChroma(aWarpSharp(depth=5),aWarpSharp(depth=15)) # sharpen luma a little, chroma more
    
    nnedi3_rpow2(2, cshift="Spline36Resize", fwidth=960, fheight=720) # upscale partially
    aWarpSharp(depth=5) # sharpen
    Sharpen(0.3) # sharpen
    
    nnedi3_rpow2(2, cshift="Spline36Resize", fwidth=1440, fheight=1080) # upscale more
    aWarpSharp(depth=5) # sharpen
    Sharpen(0.5) # sharpen
    
    ChromaShift(c=2) # align colors better
    Starting with the original DVDs should give better results (and will likely require different settings).

    i cutted the sample with vegas one year ago. the original dvdrips have that framerate and are in a MKV. The rips themselves aren't lossy.(maybe a really small bit). But whatever.
