    I don't want to advocate for this specific kind of media, but when I try to search for this online, I can't find anything, and when I do find something that could help me, it is outdated & they use an obsolete version of Handbrake.

    This movie release type is an HDTS, also known as a Telesync copy. When you playback the video, you can see a lot of flickering and sometimes the quality shi*s itself and goes all garbage, then it goes back to normal.

    These are the Handbrake settings I am using, and when you open the file in MKVToolNix, this is what it shows:

    If anyone can help me that would be great, I don't know if it's against the rules to upload a small clip of what the quality looks like but if I can ill upload a small clip here.

    Thank you very much!

    Upload a clip from you source, at least 20 seconds, something showing steady movement if possible

    Here is a clip of the source: https://streamable.com/j9qhzc (notice in the clip you see white flickering and sometimes the quality goes bad)

    I don't know if this clip has spoilers in it, but if this helps anyone who wants to help me, watch this short clip.

    If this clip doesn't help you, I will upload a better clip once I am back on my computer.

  4. He said to make a clip available (to be downloaded), not to make it available as streamed. It's so we can examine it more closely.

    I, for one, see no flickering or quality variation at all. But the quality is none too good to begin with. Not a whole lot of detail.

    Oh, you want the clip to be attached so you can download it my bad. I will do that once I am back on my computer, and I will also attach more than one clip (action scenes and stuff) so you can download it.

    Here are the clips, please tell me if these are good or not (these clips might have spoilers)

    EDIT: Re-uploaded the clips

    I don't think it's worth spending any time on. It has some blended frames, not so easy to remove.
    Best to wait for another release.

    I tried Avisynth/QTGMC InputType=2, pretty slow on my PC. Perhaps others will have some further suggestions.

    That seems way better than my output. I am going to do this instead thank you

  10. You can get rid of the flickering with something like:

    Code:
    LSMASHVideoSource("clip 1.mp4", prefer_hw=2) 
    SMDegrain (tr=1, thSAD=200, refinemotion=false, contrasharp=false, PreFilter=2, mode=0, truemotion=true, plane=4, chroma=true)
    tr is the temporal radius (number of frames forward and backward). thSAD is the strength of the averaging.
    (sample attached)

    A much faster though less accurate alternative:

    Code:
    LSMASHVideoSource("clip 1.mp4", prefer_hw=2) 
    ConvertBits(8)
    TTempSmooth(maxr=2, lthresh=4, cthresh=2, strength=2)
    Of course, it's easy to just download a much better version of the video.

    This is my first time using Hybrid, so this is what I used instead of that screenshot I posted earlier.

    I turned off automatic deinterlace, and then I went into the filter tab, denoise, and checkmark QTGMC with InputType=2 and the Very Slow preset.

    I can't tell what it's at because I am currently not on my computer, but I can check when I get back.

    What kind of settings did you use for QTGMC?

    I used this
    QTGMC( Preset="Slower", InputType=2, ProgSADMask=12.0 )

    An example taken directly out of the qtgmc wiki. I created a script in Notepad and encoded in Vdub2

    Is it possible to use ProgSADMask in Hybrid?

    Nevermind, figured out how
