Interesting. The movie that I encoded actually HAS the grainy element to it, also, the foreground one is indeed mpeg4.Foreground one is better. There is less of a shadow element to it. There is more clarity also. Look at the face in both, the one in the foreground has more detail. Also look at the curtains, more detail there also. Also the foreground capture is just a bit brighter and on a small screen device you want it to be as clear and bright enough so ya don't have to be squinting. But depending on what device you are setting this up for you could be looking for smaller file size with a hit to quality as opposed to quality with bigger file. Ya setting something up for a phone?
If I am not mistaken the foreground capture is mpeg4?
I've been doing a bunch of these with ImTOO video converter for my phone and also some for PSP with pspVideo9.
The grain noise was removed, it exists in the actual DVD movieThe top in the background looks better imo. There is less grain noise and seems slighly crisper. Although, as VenomXT said its not a great scene for comparison.
CoreAVC? The one tool i'd like to encode it with is Quicktime Pro, since that has IMHO the best h264 encoder.h264 has a better deblocking and deringing algorith. Its also less lossy than mpeg4.
x264 is not the best tool to use though You want to find a windows box with CoreAVC
Cool.Along with everyone else, I'd say the top one.
x264 is an encoder only (for creation), coreAVC is a decoder only (for playback). they are both needed. ffdshow can be used in place of coreAVC at the expense of performance but is freex264 is not the best tool to use though You want to find a windows box with CoreAVC
far from the truth! last i checked doesn't even support high profile, not to mention limitations on both the encoder and decoder that cripples the whole thing. x264 is the best, period.Quicktime Pro, since that has IMHO the best h264 encoder.
mpeg4 ASP does not actually have a deblocking algorithm, needs to be added through post processing in the decoder. mpeg4 AVC has the inloop filter, which IMO is not always a good thing, apple sets defaults far too high.h264 has a better deblocking and deringing algorith. Its also less lossy than mpeg4
extensive testing (my own as well) shows x264 surpasses it. nero's is better than quicktime's. nero's decoder is certainly not better than coreAVC and not as compatible as ffdshow/libavcodec.Nero digital has the current best encoder/decoder but its windows only
the devs have mentioned it in the past, but haven't heard of progress/news in some time. nothing has been releasedThe people that make CoreAVC make an encoder too last I heard though I've never looked to verify if that is true or not.
which IMO is better than just blurring everything. the inloop filter can turn a grassy lawn to green mushthe bottom one has compression artifacts all over it
This is for backing up all my DVD media so I can play it through MythTv on my TV without having to worry about locating the media. Also, when on Airplane flights, I can watch more movies with less power used if I am watching it from a file on my HD, than if I had to play a DVD.Could be, I have used others but... but it works for me quite well. For my phone anyway (which is the reason I use it). And that's all that matters, to me.
X-Istence, what exactly are you doing?
