Ok, after two days of work I think I finally have my filters down to get a good picture from these R2J's. (I haven't done an encode since 2000, so I had a little reading to do.) So, before I continue on with project that will probably take me a couple months, I thought I'd get some opinions on where I am.
Here's a torrent with mine, KAA's, and Zero-HP's Bleach episode 1 if you want to grab them. It ain't fiber, but I have 1MB/s up so it shouldn't take forever:http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=82580572957965413855
You can probably skip downloading the Zero-HP one unless you want to see what "unwatchable" is.
Screenshots between mine and KAA: (I'll upload more after I get some sleep. I've been at this all night)http://compare.bakashots.me/compare.php?setId=905&comparisonId=6230&imageNum=1
I resized mine from its anamorphic to save your sanity.
KAA's is generally an amazing improvement over source (which is fuzzy with horrendous ringing), but it suffers from banding, and I think they went overboard on some temporal noise filter as the detail in some scenes is really muddy. (In episode 17 it starts to rain in an emotional moment. You can barely see a drop in KAA, while in Zero-HP the rain actually has depth) Since the series especially needs some attention beyond KAA's season 1 only release, I thought I'd make a go of whatever R2J's I can find. (I have seasons 1-3 and 13 so far.)
Anyway, this is Constant Quality crf=14 Hi10P, with Undot, MosquitoNR, Edgecleaner, Msharpen, LimitedSharpenFaster, and Dehalo_alpha. Audio is LAME V1 from PCM. I used KAA's subs.
