Idol Tenshi Youkoso Yoko project
« on: December 21, 2004, 07:19:41 pm »
This is not a petition to Live-Evil but more a request of help with this project Im starting. While Ive got the funds, time and accurate translations I still lack the DVDs. Though Ive found a store that seems to have them, Id appreciate if anyone could indicate me of any other place that carries either the DVD box or the 8 individual volumes. Id also thank a source of alternate translations for this series, if existing.

Thanks in anticipation and look forward for Yoko!

We can provide the DVDs, it is not a problem.
However, we cannot take responsibility if anyone implodes because of the cuteness of this project.  One former group that released one episode of Yok'yun years ago and yet to this day some of their members have not recovered from cuteness-induced insanity.  In order to protect the rest of their members and save those who could still be saved, the project was immediately halted.  It was not a very good release anyways, as the staff went insane making QC imposible.

I will be back in 2 weeks from today or less, you can PM me then on IRC.

Ugh, actually I thoght nobody had answered, so went and bought the DVDs (and paid beatufully for them). Anyway, the project is on now, a blog on it will be started shortly. Cuteness I fear not, guess Ive become immune. Anyway, this is an outstanding series, dont hesitate to check out.

Though Ive got translations of the dialogs, I possess only the japanese, unromanized lyrics of the songs, and not for all of them. Help on this matter would be greatly appreciated, either in romanizing the text or in getting the lyrics I miss. Anyone out there possessing the CDs could be of great help.

I hope to produce a couple chapters a month. Shortly Ill be posting the blog address, where all news will be published. More info soon!

If you need help with the songs or distribution, just ask :)

If you need help filtering the DVDs, ask.
I can give you the eriko filter set which works very well for noisy DVDs.  It did a very good job with eriko so it should work for those DVDs too.

Thanks, Tofu, actually I think Ill need some help with distribution. Regarding the filter, my DVDs have cristal clear picture so far. Maybe Ive got an untrained eye :D? My only technical problem at this point is with the subs: Im ripping with Auto Gordian Knot, and Im unable to add the subs on the first rip. Ive got to do it later with Virtual Dub, but theres a loss in quality. Any tip for Gordian Knot, Auto Gordian Knot or some other software solution?

You should talk to me or someone else familiar with it over IRC.  Basically the proper way to do it involves DGIndex/dvd2avi, avisynth, mpeg2dec3, textsub filter (for avisynth), etc.  You should never have to do a YV12->RGB conversion and if you add subtitles in VDub this will be forced upon you by VDub.  It will take a while to get everything properly set up, but once you are set up and understand the process it is only a minor change to go from episode to episode.

Yeah I went to sleep.  
If you just want to test out subtitlers, you can use the VDub .ssa filter.  This isn't the optimum way to encode though, as VDub when used this way forces a YV12->RGB color conversion.

To encode you want to make another .avs file, name it something like "episode 1 encode".  

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=82303&package_id=84359

Get VSFilter there, and then specify all your (split) .avi's in the avisource part of your .avs file.  Typically my final encode file ends up looking something like this:

LoadPlugin ("VSFilter.dll")
AVISource ("episode01raw_noaudio.00.avi", "episode01raw_noaudio.01.avi", "episode01raw_noaudio.02.avi")
ConvertToYV12()
Textsub ("myscript.ssa")

Then open it in VDub, select "Fast Recompress" for video, load the audio, set up XVid encode and that's it.

Ok, there seemed to be some problem with the codec. I got to encode the thing, but neither the format nor the quality were as expected. Guess Ill have to repeat some steps.

Yeah once again find me on IRC.  For XVid you generally want quantitization level 3-5.

BT is the best way to distribute, post it on a tracker like scarywater or such (Tofu or someone can help with that) and then seed it for a while, about 12 hours or so while the other dedicated seeders (your friends or something like that) get it.    Once you have about 10 dedicated seeds, then announce it on a site like animesuki.com.

Since this is yok'yun we are dealing with, be sure to put warnings on it so people don't get pissed off at your group if they go insane or have fits from watching it.

Sindo, Ive got this problem: My sample looks and runs great in the PC, but it doesnt run smoothly in my stand-alone player. It jumps and slows down, specially when the image pans. This doesnt happen with gknot generated rips. Any ideas?

Some of the standalone players work only up to a certain bitrate and/or resolution.  Also, turn off some of the xvid enhancements including qpel, gmc, etc.  Make sure you have the latest xvid version (1.0RC4 or something).  I wouldn't worry too much about standalone players, MPEG-2 is a better way to go for those.  I have no problem using someting like bbmpeg2.  MPEG-4 is such a new standard there are many compatibility problems.  If someone is able to download from the internet, they've already got a computer so I wouldn't worrey about compatibility with those players too much.

Its ok now, it needed a PAL conversion. Standalone compatibility is important for me cause I never actually see anime on the computer, he he. Anyway, time to start distribution, Ill post with news.
