A decent film, and finally a small & decent encode. You can immediately replace your THORA copy with this since it's better overall.

Screenshots & DDL on Animetosho.

  • Video is mediocre. Although the range isn't smashed, unlike THORA. 1312px wide cuz some decoders crash on non-integer multiples of CTU width.
  • x265 is bad with dark & unpredictable things. Fur is both, and unfortunately, happens often. Everything else is fine tho. Hard to find a happy medium between size & quality.
  • It's quite blurry. It is DEFINITELY NOT worth 1036p. I applied a tad of sharpening, and the eyes look slightly distracting, but the trees are still blurry. Again, hard to find a happy medium. Originally, I had unsharp higher, but limiter didn't help the halos, but it did smash the darker scenes (which are quite important in this movie).
  • FFMPEG filters: set filterstring=-vf crop=1916:1036,scale=1312:704:flags=bicubic,hqdn3d=2,unsharp=luma_amount=0.75,limiter=8:232

  • SFX, music, dialogue, and global levels vary across all languages so no matter what I do it'll still sound a bit inconsistent. Also, EN had music placement differences. Surround & LFE were turned down for balance. Exciter on EN/CNT to make speech more intelligible.

  • Experimental 7.1 upscale on JP track. I was aiming for 9.1, but couldn't isolate the music because of reverb mangling, so you get 7.1 (turning failure into success?). Maybe you will hear instability/ artefacts, but it will downmix +- to the original 5.1

  • The ED is also by aiko this time, but unlike KOE KATACHI, it's not upscaled to surround! (the BGM is tho). Some discreteness tweaks. Star is also a MUCH better song than KoiNoShitaNoWa.

  • I didn't really like the EN ED, the AC3 I have didn't include it, and I couldn't find a HQ EN ED, so it is filled in by Star

  • There's quite a bit of a story to the EN fandub. http://en.wikifur.com/wiki/Stormy_Night_Redub_Team . This all happened about 10 years ago, and the crew have all but disappeared from the internets, but I would like to make a 9.1+ surround mix of this someday, or at least a slightly better dub. Since this AC3 is badly encoded - 15k co @448kps, DD consumer or a worse encoder.
