Sailor Moon Crystal - 02

Sailor Moon Crystal – 02

Sorry for the delay, we ran into some trouble! Mainly TLC ISP trouble. This episode introduces a new Sailor, and she kind of reminds me of Two from Drag-on Dragoon 3! Only more sane.
Thanks to the following people this week for helping us out of trouble:

  • sarasmith, for translating while I was away.
  • Twigstalker, for timing
  • Jocko, for putting the final touches on the show.
  • Pikminiman, for taking over encoding and doing a great job at it!

People paying close attention will notice that the 480p is actually 854×480 instead of 848×480, making it closer to the 16:9 aspect ratio.

    854×480 like Motorola and Sony Android.
    If I’m not mistaken H254 encoded in 16×16 block, which make 854×480, even 1920×1080 is not ideal.
    Internally 1920×1080 saved as 1920×1088.

    When I was deciding on what resolution to use for the 480p encode, I made a huge Excel spreadsheet to figure out which mod16 resolutions would be closest to 480p while retaining true 16:9. The two closest resolutions were 768×432 and 1024×576, the former of which is too small and the latter of which is too large. So, instead of fighting the mod16 system, I encoded the SD version of the episode twice, once at 854×480 (mod2) and once at 848×480 (mod16), and concluded that there was no visible difference in encoding quality between them. As such, I went with the resolution that is closer to true 16:9, i.e. 854×480, which is only 2/3 of a horizontal pixel away from being true 16:9.

    I also tried playing the mod2 resolution file on a number of devices (low-end linux netbook, Smart TV, Blu-Ray player, etc.), and none of them seemed to have a problem with it. Therefore, I decided to go with mod2 since it allowed me to get significantly closer to true 16:9, which is very helpful for scaling down complex typesetting from the native 720p resolution at which I typesetted the episode.
