For my part thats the opposite !

I decided to drop bilinear after having encoded Monster ! On the first scene, the head of the child bed is supposed to be a perfect curve; With bilinear it was more like a stair that a smooth half circle. I changed to bicubic(0,0.6) and the curve was perfect.

i misunderstand something Phil cos
i use bicubic and got better result too.
see my last post before this,i wrote:
"..the second(without lanczos) is really best..."
with bicubic was better than lanczos!

You're right Jorel, I read "bilinear" where you wrote "bicubic". So my post does'nt have any sense

Seems that the weather is to hot for my brain (36C since one week here in France!)

@J-Wo: yes, I normally use 300-2500 bitrate.

@Dialhot: did Undot improve the picture any? Are you working with high quality sources? I would have thought spatial filtering would have been unecessary with a HQ divx since any noise would (should?) have been filtered out during the divx encoding process ... but use whatever works of course!

Improved the quality ? It depends in wich way we are talking. I did all my test at constant CQ (70). Can't really say if undot improved the quality or not but what I'm sure is that it didn't lower it (that important ) and the sample size was 10% smaller with undot than without it.

So the final CQ will be greater, and we can say that the quality will be better.

BTW, we always use a spatial filter even in the optimal scripts for DVD clean sources even if this noise would (and should) have been filterd during the MPEG2 DVD authoring. no ?

I've always thought that any spatial filtering softens divx sources too much as they're already pretty soft compared to DVDs so I tend to leave it out and take the CQ hit - I just prefer the results of a sharper source with a lower CQ. Same thing goes for Kwag's DVD scripts, IMHO they soften the picture too much so I just do my own thing with less spatial filtering.

I guess noise should have been filtered out during the DVD encoding process but experience has shown this not to be the case.

But what Im trying to say is: if you like the results then use the script, whatever it is :)

That is also why I use Lanczos resizing. We are the same. But in this case Undot+Lanzos is better thatn Bilinear+nothing.

FWIW I used to use Lanczos but noticed over-sharpening artefacts from time to time so I switched back to Bicubic.

I am very basic here so bare with me is this what the script should look like

Quote:
LoadPlugin("C:\Filters25\MPEG2Dec3.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Filters25\atc.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Filters25\ASharp.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Filters25\Blockbuster.dll")




AviSource("C:\my movie.avi")
Blockbuster(method="noise",detail_min=1,detail_max =8,variance=0.3,seed=5823)
ATC(1,2,4,0.5,false)
TemporalSoften(2,7,7,3,2)
ASharp(1,3)
Blockbuster(method="noise",detail_min=1,detail_max =10,variance=0.5,seed=5823)
BicubicResize(496, 318, 1/3, 1/3, 6, 0, 532, 28
AddBorders(16, 81, 16, 81)
THanx

I would use BlockBuster after resize, because resize also smooths a bit.

Wolfi,

Yes, it does but you don't need to use the virtualdub version, there is a native avisynth 2.5 version. But please, next time, start a new thread since your question has nothing to do with this thread idea...
