I have some anime AVIs that I’d like to put on to DVD so they play on my home DVD player. I’ve read a bunch of stuff on using TMPGEnc, but I’m not sure I’m using the best options to get the highest quality MPG2 output.
The quality of the source is variable (some have minor color smear/ghosting artifacts). Let me use one example; I have an AVI that runs at -edited-14.985fps. Here’s how I have TMPGEnc set up:
Steam Type: System (Video+Audio) MPEG2
Frame rate: 14.985 (internally 29.97)
Rate control: Constant Quality
VBV buffer: 0 (automatic)
Profile & Level: MP@ML
Video format: NTSC
YUV: 4:2:0 (I’d like to set this to 4:2:2 but don’t know how)
DC precision: 9 bits (wasn’t sure how much better 10 bits would be)
Motion Search: High Quality
Ghost Reduction, Noise Reduction, Custom Color Correction
GOP, Quantize, Audio, and System panels left at their defaults.
Using these settings as a test bed, I get some good looking output when viewing the MPG on WinDVD, but I have not yet tried to burn to DVD for TV playback. Thanks all in advance!
