Which resolution do you personally prefer for storing your anime series, 720p or 1080p? Why?
>>
720p
My shitty laptop can't play 1080p without stuttering.
>>
I generally download them in 720p, because the size difference is huge and not every series has been digitally developed for 1080p.
>>
It depends.
Daiz, Hi10p etc.
>>
720p for airing shows and 1080p for BDs.
>>
720p.

Size, portability, more likely to run well on a given device.

Tbh, I can't tell the difference between 720 and 1080 most of the time.

In my day the question was Real Media or .AVI, so it's like... everyone is so spoiled now that it's ridiculous.
>>
>>100417327
This. 1080p TV rips aren't worth the size.
>>
>>100417340
>Tbh, I can't tell the difference between 720 and 1080 most of the time.
That's probably because most of the time there is no difference.
>>
>>100417327
This, even if 1080p BDs are still an upscale.
>>
TV Shows at 720p (unless they are mastered at 900p/1080p)
Movies/OVAs 1080p
>>
1080p on my television.
720p everywhere else; I can't really tell the difference on a small screen.
>>
1080p obviously, though I delete them after I finish them, takes too much space on the hd
>>
1080 for Movies and most OVAs, 720 for most TV shows unless they where done in 1080 or close to it.

720p for BD rips or TV

1080p for cel/film, movies, etc.
>>
720 for TV
1080 for BD
>>
720p is fine. a good 90% of anime is in 720p and the 1080 is just an upscaling. I will do 1080p for movies though simply because finding a 720p rip is harder to find for movies, plus movies tend to have a way higher budget so the attention to detail is worth the higher file size
>>
720p for shows,
1080p for movies.

I don't know a single good reason to download shows in 1080p, except if they are actually mastered in 1080p (which most of them aren't).
>>
720, most 1080 is just upscales.
>>
Good/favorite anime: 720p
Average/mediocre anime: 480p
Utter crap anime: 360p
>>
720p, unless it's genuine 1080p. From my regular viewing distance, I can't really tell the difference between 720p < x < 1080p shows.
>>
1080p for one cour/movies
720 for two cour
480 for four cour or longer
>>
As most have already said:

-720p for airing shows, BD rips and storing anime series
-1080p for movies/ovas

Might think to use 1080p for BD rips too, but most of the time those are still 720p upscales, so the extra file size it's not worth it.
>>
1080p for blurays. The 720p versions are downscales.

Even if you say the video was not digitally worked on at 1920x1080, which is not universally true like some people think, the fact is the video on the bluray is 1920x1080. The studio scaling to 1080p period, is better than the studio scaling to 1080p and then someone else scaling again to 720p.
>>
>>100417781
>The studio scaling to 1080p period, is better than the studio scaling to 1080p and then someone else scaling again to 720p.
Not always. When the studio uses something like bilinear to upscale the video the encoder can use debilinear to downscale it and then you can use a decent scaling algorithm during playback to get a better result.
>>
>>100417781
Studios tend to do shitty job at scaling. There are even filters to reverse it, like debilinear, and you can get superior quality to original when upscaling video treated in such way with high quality scalers.
>>
>>100417945
>>100417959
You don't know what the studio uses.

I disagree it's going to come out higher quality. Perhaps similar quality to the point where it doesn't matter, but not higher quality.
>>
>>100417244
720p because 1080p is usually upscaled.
>>
>>100417244
720p because the size difference is ridiculous for little to no video quality improvement.
>>
>>100417327
>720p for airing and BDs of TV anime, 1080p for BDs of anime movies.
FTFY

1080p because it makes rampant 3dcg less pd.
>>
>>100417244
480 because I'm not daft, my chinese girl cartoons look the exact same in 480 or higher

hell I think some of them are stored in 288p
>>
>usually upscales

How do you even find out if it's an upscale or if it really was mastered in 1080p?
>>
>>100418562
By using your eyes.
>>
>>100418562
You open it in notepad.
>>
>>100418562

>>
>>100418580
>>100418596
At first everyone's like "I can't really tell the difference" and now you're telling me to use my eyes? Is it _that_ different?
>>

>>
>>100418716

>>
>>100418697
People can't tell the difference because most of the time there is no difference. And if you can't tell the difference then why does it matter why you can't? Just get the 720p releases.
>>
>>100418697
Its one of those things you can only notice when you know what you're looking for, but when you do, it's really obvious.

The point is that most of the time between 720p and 1080p there is no difference because of the upscale. There's nothing to see there

But once you see something actually made in 1080p, you'll be able to see that upscales are just 720p that take up more room on your screen

Here's a comparison between Underwater-FFF's Saki Achiga-hen BD releases: http://check2pic.ru/compare/34427/

The differences are pretty marginal at best and not something you're likely to notice while watching. It's pretty much the same for most BD releases, though shows being produced at resolutions over 720p are becoming more common these days.
>>
720p for TV/WEB-DL
1080p for BDRips since even if they are upscales, have the bitrate to justify it

But if we are talking archiving here, most of this discussion seems to be about upscales where the 720p shows improvement but the 1080p gives diminishing results where the 300-800mb extra isn't worth it (although this "worth" does not relate to storage price since that is cheap). When we go into UHD, will the 1080p upscale look better than the 720p upscale? Every Pixel in the 1080p version will be expanded 4 times and even worse in the 720p version

Honestly, the only captchas I even have trouble with are those shitty ones where you get nothing but a long string of numbers.

They are 2D-FFT magnitude spectrums. More or less they are showing how small you can shrink a screenshot of an anime before you lose actual detail (usually meaning the character outlines become less sharp).

Wait, what exactly is the difference between "Upscaled 720p to 1080p" and "Native 720p" (upscaled to 1080p)?
>>
>>100422952
How subs look depends on your subtitle renderer. You may want to take a look at XySubFilter.
How the videos looks depends on your video renderer, take a look at madVR.
Pretty pointless comparison (naming is a bit misleading too).
>>
>>100421758
Jesus, what scaling algorithms do you use? It shouldn't look that different.
>>
>>100423044
>>100423025
see
>>100422149

Basically, native 720p is the file in 1280x720 and then fullscreen on a 1080p monitor, just what that anon wanted.

While 720p upscaled to 1080p is the upscaled release from HR which is at 1920x1080.

tl:dr one is stretched the other isn't.

>>100422111
What did you use to make this gif? The quality is quite nice and the size isn't that big.
>>
>>100423142
So what upscaling algorithm did you use?
>>
All things being equal if you want the best quality you should always grab 1080p.

Chroma subsampling means you will be losing color information if you download anything besides 1080p or 4:4:4 720p encodes.

Also, most downscaling is not lossless. The only methods of downscaling that are lossless are filters like deilinear and debicubic. However, if an encoder guesses wrong and use debilinear when the source was actually upscaled using bicubic they will introduce a bunch of ringing. I doubt most encoders look hard enough to know if they are using the correct one.
>>
>>100423142
Do you mean you're converting a 720p release of a group with their 1080p release? If so, "native" isn't really the word you should use.

Also, see >>100423122, and you probably should use PNG and not JPEG for comparisons like these.

What? First of all, why do you need some special software to take screenshots? And if your software only allows jpg screenshots then don't use that software for quality comparisons.

The comparison stays the same, their shit are steamrips but you can clearly see upscaled looks better than their normal 720 release, which was the whole point of this.

>>100423594
It looks better when actually watching it, that's a given. But both pictures lose the same amount of quality. They're not to show off how good native 1080p/upscaled looks compared to upscaled 720p/native 720 but rather a comparison to see that there's a significant difference between those two.

The 720p version of Horriblesubs release is not an upscaling algorithm. What madVR settings you using to upscale it to 1080p?

I don't think anyone, including you, has any idea what you mean with native and upscaled at this point.
>>
720p is usually indistinguishable from 1080p in practice. I suppose if I pause, move closer to my monitor and look extremely closely, I might sometimes notice a difference. When actually watching something, though...

>>100422952 is actually a pretty good example. The difference here is really noticeable when looking closely. When I lean back in my chair though, the two shots are a lot closer. And that's a still shot, and I'm specifically trying to compare them, and rarely are the differences that extreme. I sometimes for for 1080 for movies, but most of the time, I'd rather have the hard drive space for more shows.
>>
>>100423746
Yeah. Something most people should be able to use, so chose it over nnedi3.

1080p. Because I've never seen a 1080p video look worse than its 720p counterpart if they're part of the same release, but I have 1080p videos look better than their 720p counterpart from the same release.

Both are upscaled, it's just that the upscaling either happend during encoding or on your computer. and you're probably using bilinear or something equally crappy
>>
>>100423889
jinc is for online upscaling. nnedi is for offline

>>
>>100423889
I used Avisynth, and while Jinc recently got ported, I haven't actually tested it yet. nnedi3 should be better anyway.

I use Jinc for playback with madVR, though.
>>
I use a 6 year old macbook. I don't think there are any actual viewable differences between 720p and 1080p on this thing.
>>
>>100423956
Actually nnedi3 just got a real nice opencl version. Give it like another year and a new GPUs should be able to do it in realtime for 720p to 1440p. Right now it is possible to do 480p to 960p if you have a good GPU.

720p because whenever I play a 1080p file my computer downscales it to 720p so there's no real point in downloading 1080p.
>>
>>100424133
>my computer downscales it to 720p
Why? Small monitor?
>>
>>100423984
I said the difference is noticeable. My point was that the difference lessens the farther you are from your monitor. It's still definitely there.
>>
>>100423906
I'm the guy who has no idea what's happening and just agrees with whoever speaks last, so bear with me for a second.

>it's just that the upscaling either happend during encoding or on your computer.
This means that if I download a 720 release and make it fullscreen to a 1920x1080 resolution, the result should be the same as downloading the 1080p release?
"upscaling to 1080p" just means something like "making the default resolution of the video 1920x1080"?

720p for airing shows. Unless they're a special case, like Gifuu Doudou. One of those anime where nobody even bothers to take the 1080p CR source and use that, which would have been the best choice.

Otherwise, it's generally 1080p for movies, 1080p for any anime BDs from the past year or so, and the rest is a case-by-case basis.

Old anime with grain, you just have to take what you can get. There usually isn't a choice.

>"upscaling to 1080p" just means something like "making the default resolution of the video 1920x1080"?
yes
>This means that if I download a 720 release and make it fullscreen to a 1920x1080 resolution, the result should be the same as downloading the 1080p release?

no, not necessarily.

a) the source material available to whoever made the encode (e.g. crunchyroll) might be > 720p. E.g. a 960p source upscaled to 1080p will preserve that quality while downscaling to 720p would lose some
b) an offline upscaling algorithm can be better since it can do more complex calculations than something that has to work in realtime. The best online upscaling algorithm we have right now is Jinc, available in madVR. Most people just use shitty bilinear, which results in washed out edges.
>>
>>100424202
And I'm actually being serious because I've experienced those things as well. You might need megane anon.

But naturally it would lessen.

Which is better?

1080p DL on 1080p monitor or 720p DL upscaled on 1080p?

If you have a 1080p monitor, is it better to let the pc do the upscaling, or download the upscaled version?

watching it 720p at 720p (letterboxing, or whatever) is not an option, sorry poorfags

Here is a comparison of Kara no Kyoukai. The digital grain in it is 1080p. Grain like this probably the only real time you will notice the difference between 720p and 1080p anime.

>>
>>100424774
If that 1080p you download is certainly an upscale:
- color (chroma) resolution loss if you upscale 720p
- overlay (like credits) resolution loss if you upscale 720p
- higher quality brightness (luma) if you upscale 720p with a better algorithm (see madVR) than the 1080p used
>>
1080p is just upscales usually right?

I tend to click em anyways if they're available, unlimited bandwidth and 5TB free. Some Anon explained it was probably better quality to get 720p and let my PC upscale it, so maybe I'll switch down, I don't know.

I'm probably one of the few retards who runs SVP to get muh 60fps, so perfect image quality has never been a major concern for me. Especially since I got my start on anime years and years ago with 15 mb rmvbs of Ranma. Quality was SURE not issue there.
