450p or 396p ?

Post by furransu » Jul 21st, '11, 10:13

Which resolution do you all prefer?

Some people say they want 396p, since i've started encoding to 450p, should i move back to 396p ?

In terms of filesize, 450p is slightly bigger than 396p.

How much bigger is 450p filesize, compared to 396p?

Keep encoding to 450p please.

I don't see any reason to keep using 704x396. It's a really antiquated standard, much like 700 MB / 1.3 GB file sizes.

File size doesn't seem like a great argument. If you compare these encodes to old 704x396 XviD/DivX encodes, the file size is actually smaller. Of course if you use 704x396 with x264 it goes down even more, but it's already lower than what people have been used to for years. If anything, you could try increasing the image quality since you can afford slightly bigger files than what you're making now (if you're encoding them from scratch that is, and not downscaling somebody else's encodes).

I understand as I also have a capped bandwidth, so filesize IS important for me and make it easier for me to keep on seeding as well.

Like I said at the Tempest ep1 thread:
I'm OK with any resolution, it's just resolution, the ratio is still the same. As long as the quality is nice and the filesize is small, I'm all fine. I'm actually very happy with the filesize lately, it's small yet still maintain the quality as before. Thanks again, furransu.

Ah, of course. Have you tried reducing the audio quality to cut down the file size? At any rate, I hope you'll continue using 450p if possible.

I like the 450 version, the filesize looks not much bigger.
Quality is good by both formats. I am a media noob, but i think the x264 settings are very good.

If possible keep the 450p.

I prefer 450p :thumleft: . The quality of Tempest ep 1 is really good. Please keep up with 450p file, the filesize doesn't matter to me :D
