Hi everybody! I mentioned this on facebook few minutes ago and wanted to share it with you on SMC forums.

[quote]Have any of you heard of Hi10P or played 10-bit anime releases on your computer? Some may WTF is Hi10P? In other words, more data used to define color which means we can get less banding for a smaller file size. The staff at SMC would like to endorse this new encoding practice known as Hi10P or 10-bit encoding which should eventually provide you better quality. We will do a test sample using episode 1 from the first season and hopefully our attempt becomes successful. Also, we hope our fans continue to support us as we slowly make this transition from 8-bit(our regular SMC releases) to the new 10-bit releases. We want to hear your thoughts, questions, comments, and concerns. I, Kakeru, will be starting a thread about this on our forum. I invite all of you to join SMC forums and join us in this new quest!

Here is a link with more details regarding Hi10p aka 10-bit encoding. http://haruhichan.com/wpblog/?p=205

What do you guys think about this? Should we go for it?

I just noticed a difference between SM EP 16(Japanese DVD) and SM EP 16 (Italian DVD) footage:

I hope it doesn't cause any drama for our season one re-release.

I'll go with the second, the first one SCREAMS magenta, and it is harder to filter (you are a pro so I don't mind) if the second had ~5% more magenta would be perfect ;)

WOW! The Ita one looks nice. Clean, sharp, and balanced in RGB. I'll definitely go with it ;)

Yes, the second one is from the Italian DVDs. I am glad they fixed and balanced the reds, they did such a wonderful job.

@Toni_jupiter: There are two screenshots for screenshotcomparison.com
The second one has less banding than the first one :)
