I'm in the process of encoding Disney's Winnie the Pooh from 1977 and I'm having difficulties with getting the surfaces smooth. I'm getting an awful lot of Gibbs and low CQ! What filter(s) can I use for this - and what settings?
This is how my script looks:
Quote:
MPEG2Source("D:/Pooh/Pooh.d2v")
BlindPP(cpu=4)
Deen("a2d", 1, 5, 8 )
MergeChroma(Blur(1.5))
MergeLuma(Blur(0.1))
BicubicResize(448, 544, 0, 0.6, 4, 0, 712, 576)
TemporalSoften(1, 5, 8, 3, 2)
Undot()
BlockBuster(method="noise", detail_min=1 ,detail_max=3, variance=0.1, seed=1)
DCTFilter(1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0.5, 0)
AddBorders(16, 16, 16, 16)

Normaly Convolution3D use a special animation matric for cartoons but you have to select it manually because with the presets, it is used only in AnimeLQ that is an heavy filtering.

Try Convolution3D(1, 6, 12, 6, 8, 2.8, 0) insteed of deen in your script.
And remove blockbuster line.

Yes, Dialhot, it looks better now but still far from good. Still a lot of gibbs but the CQ jumped up about 15 units though. Any other ideas? What about MSmooth? Is that a good filter for cartoons?

you could use mfToon, even though i've never tried it before, i've read about it on the doom9 forum.

You could try MipSmooth or PeachSmoother. MipSmooth already has an AnimeHQ preset. MipSmooth works good on my cartoons like Family Guy, but i don't know if it is good for old ones.

You may try MADMask and TemporalSmoother. This combination is found in the script challenge.

Hi Audioslave.

As I see you tried my first script on your 1977 cartoon you should again read your started thread in Avisynth "static script". Cause this one (number 1 like you used above) is using a light 2d deen and so on. It is only for clean good nice produced DVD sources! And Winnie Puh from 1977 maybe in 2003 loves some "cosmetics"

So try also the two other versions in the Thread there and tell me if it woks better for you ... the best would be to answer there if you stuck with one of theese.

And DialHot is right, remove the blockbuster cause there are no long luma/chroma fadings within big surfaces in old Cartoon movies they are plain.
