My anime encoding settings is (720p)

Quote:
--ctu 32 --max-tu-size 16 --tu-inter-depth 3 --splitrd-skip --tu-intra-depth 3 --b-intra --ssim-rd --weightb --cbqpoffs -3 --crqpoffs -3 --no-open-gop --max-merge 4 --rc-lookahead 90 --lookahead-slices 0 --limit-refs 1 --limit-modes --rdpenalty 1 --ref 5 --me 3 --psy-rd 2.40 --subme 4 --bframes 6 --merange 50 --psy-rdoq 3 --rdoq-level 2 --deblock -3 --aq-mode 2 --aq-strength 1.30 --rd 4 --no-strong-intra-smoothing --no-sao --limit-tu 2 --qg-size 16 --qcomp 0.70 --fades
Is there anything I should change to further improve the quality of the anime?
Please anyone help here

How did you wind up with these settings? A lot seems pretty random. For example, --rdpenalty only applies to 64x64 CUs, but you're using --ctu 32. And I've never seen --max-tu-size 16 used for anything. Did you actually see improvements by setting that?
Or --ssim-rd, which didn't work well for general content, and I would think would be less applicable to anime.

You're not specifying --profile or --level-idc, which can be important for compatibility.

I'd start with --preset slower --tune animation and iterate from there. It's rare that you'd need or should set so many parameters manually.

How can I compile or download nasm 2.16?
There are supposedly newer nasm replacements. Where and from where can I download?

Looks like the right place. Pull it with git, adding .git to the URL. Or download an archive from the green button [ Code ] - "Download ZIP". Then ./configure, make ... as usual. I guess.

I should possibly suggest to the MSYS2 team that nasm 2.16 is available.

Or not. This tag is not "released" yet. The "latest" snapshot is 2.16rc0-20201104 ... hmm, it aged well.

I am building my new PC for x265 video encoding because my PC is broken by thunderstruck accident.

Could everyone give me some advice?

My old CPU is R7 5800x with encode --preset veryslow about 6.2 fps (x265 version 3.5), I want to increase the encode speed at least 14 fps

My build was using a 3950X but I upgraded to a 5950X, 16 cores / 32 threads. The prices have dropped as availability increased. I encode with grain and slow selected, usually at CRF 20. That 5950X comes to life and moves along quite well. One factor that effects speed is the number of filters you have applied. I almost always encode with AVS, and set the AVS threads to 14. My experience was that anything higher than 14 on HD source didn't yield much benefit. On SD source I use a thread count of 6.

Look at this thread, although some results are quite old:

https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=174393

So, just go on Lenovos website and start to look at Threadripper offerings I guess.

On very slow nothing at a "reasonable" price will give you that. I would honestly say for now to get an inexpensive unit (sub $200 USD refurb) to get you buy until Zen 4 is released, as Raptor Lake will also be released "soon". It's possible there may be some insane increases in encode speeds (15% IPC at least rumoured). Even if there is not, Zen3 prices should drop some more and Intel 12th gen should as well as they have learned they can no longer demand stupid prices with AMD beating them.

Thank @Khun_Doug, @rwill, @RanmaCanada

I will follow RanmaCanada's idea to wait for AMD or Intel release new gen CPU to check perf/price to buy or waiting old gen price down price

Well hasn't it been in maintenance mode for quite some time now with no major updates? it's possible we might need to move to VVC or AV1 and completely relearn how to encode haha.

My understanding is that lots of talent left MulticoreWare, so the pace of development has slowed quite a lot.

Well I mean x265 is very mature now, so what I'm concerned about is actually x266.
It's been a while now since the official specs have been finalized and there are encoders like VVEnc from Fraunhofer which are somewhat usable compared to the original reference encoder which was meant to be used for tests only.
Decoders are also slowly but surely popping up and there are plugins that can be compiled and integrated in VLC etc.

And yet... no public x266 repository.
Given that there hasn't been any progress on x265 for a while, I assume Multicoreware is going hands down on x266 and focusing on it, but at this point I'm not sure.

H.266 VVC specs were finalized on the 6 July 2020, so in 2 days it's gonna be two years of no progress with x265 and still no x266.

I just had a look at MulticoreWares website and it seems a lot more focused on AI/ML than video encoding, same goes for their job openings.

But looks like they had a x266 demo at IBC this year though.

Tbh it has pretty much been dead since 3.0 in 2019.
