Shumatsu Nani Shitemasuka is a good anime in this season, its BlueRay is also not bad.
The whole RAW looks clean, even in some dark sense, it has clearly and moderately contrast of its edge. The lines are not so sharp, even some deliberate blurring effects.
I use AA, adaptive sharpen, nr-debanding as general processing method. Though edges of characters have burring effect, they still not smooth due to resizing of source, especially in OPED, so I add the processing strength.
The RAW also use noise to void banding, but it will cause increment of file size, so I used BM3D to reduce some noise. different from the preview BD I ripped, I used a more accurate nrmask at this time. This mask was modified from mawen’s script, which have better effect in protecting texture than other mask I have ever used.
I tested some performance of x265 v2.4 in the past few days, and I tried to encode it with this version. compare with v2.3, I used lower psy parameter in x265 and higher reduce-noise level in vpy script.
