Unhappy animated movies are difficult to rip

Because of the uniform colors of animated movies, I find it harder to transform into divX than a classical movie.

I noticed that, when I could use a 800 bitrate for a classical movie, I got a piece a shit result for an animated movie at the same bitrate, because of colors.

Does anyone know some good parameters (other than birate) that could noticabily improve animated movies quality ?

Thanks
PS : excuse my poor english

What encoding steps did you take? That would be a good beginning.

Sorry, but what do you mean by "encoding steps" ?

I can tell you, I work with DivX4.12, 2 passes, and with the codec default parameters (I mean for Data Rate Control : 12 / 2 / 2000 / 10 / 20).

I also use FlaskMpeg 0.594 in HQ bicubic mode, TCDi MMX.

With clasical movies, those parameters are plenty satisfying to me.

Does it help you ?

I think cartoons are encoded best with nandub. If you want low bitrates it helps a lot to reduce the resoluton (to 512x.. or lower) and use a smoothing-filter. You should also use a very low minimum bitrate to waste no space on still images.

I agree with benderman. You may also want to use bilinear resizing as well to soften the video so that it is more easily compressible.

A lower resolution, like Benderman suggested, is essential especially if you are not using a high amount of bitrate (What is it anyway?).

Maybe it's time for an Avatar change...

Cute enough, heh?

p.s. Wonder why so few people here use an Avatar. I know of one forum, where the ones without an avatar are a minority.

Let's re-run through what you did. What resolution did you use? and if I remember correctly, you did cut out the intro and end credits as well, right?

p.s. I have worked on a few Eva episodes before and they are very easy to compress. Not sure about Nadesico, as I've not watched it before nor ripped any of its DVDs.
