[Guide] How to create c12 encoding quality. Now with Video Tutorial
#1
this tutorial will help you all wether you are new encoder or seasoned encoder to make c12 quality encode.

Encoding using Megui

download list :
- Latest Megui + Plugin updated + Daily Tools
Haali Media Splitter

Show Contentold link. don't use unless necessary:


single time preparation (you only need to do this once):
Show ContentSpoiler:

tutorial encoding :
encoding is separated by 3 main step. Extracting Subtitle files, Avisynth Script, and Waiting encode to finish.

step 1 - Extracting Subtitle Files
1. open Megui
2. click on Tools > HD Stream Extractor (CTRL+F7)
3. Select input file (source video). then check on subtitle stream, uncheck anything else. then click Queue
4. now you back on main megui window. click on Queue tab, then start queue.
this will extract subtitle from source so you can hardsub it later in Encoding process
some releases already has subtitle hardsubbed in it. hardsubbed subtitle wont show in HD Stream Extractor
if it hardsubbed already, skip step 1, go to step 2.
Show Contentpicture for attention:


step 2 - Avisynth Script
1. still in main window Megui (assuming you just do step 1)
2. click on Tools > Avisynth Script Creator (CTRL+R)
3. select your input file (source video).
4. you will get message to select which method you want to use. in this tutorial and what i usually do. choose File Indexer
Show Contentpicture for attention:

5. now File Indexer window will appear. choose "FFMS Index". and select single audio tracks. then press queue.
this audio tracks will be used in encoding process.
Show Contenthere a pic for your attention:


6. open queue tab, and press start.
now megui will extract video files, audio files, and creating avisynth script.
7. after completing (6), avisynth script creator will appear.
you must make sure :
- avisynth profile : cyber12
- resize : 1280x720. suggest resolution "mod16"
- open Filters tab.
- source info : usually "progressive"
- check "source is anime"
- input subtitles in bottom (if any)
then press save. (you can preview first if you want)
this is pretty much everything about avisynth script in megui.


Step 3 - Encoding and waiting
1. after you save avisynth script in previous step, notice that Input tab already filled automatically.
2. you also should notice that only video section are filled. not audio.
3. choose input audio (default on c:\File\LQ).
4. make sure :
- video section, encoder setting : x264 Cyber12 v2
- audio section, encoder setting : Nero AAC Cyber12 (if not exist, go back to the top of this guide. you must be missing something)
5. after everything ready. click on Auto Encode
- container : mp4
- device : standart
- splitting : no splitting
- size and bitrate : No Target Size
then click queue
6. go to Queue tab. and Start. and wait until everything finished.



is it too complicated?
here video tutorial. (play it in 720p HD for clear view)

That's pretty much the simple but sure step for encoding in cyber12 v2 quality (720p)

nice try, but you answered nothing. the question is: why we have to prepare haali media splitter while it had nothing to do with given steps.

and as far as i am aware, C12 avisynth profile did not use it at all..

hmm, ok let's leave that haali program aside it seems like we won't be using that. I got another question though if you don't mind; how do you change the font size and style? my mp4 output file has a different font style and larger font size compared to its mkv source.

well, use AegisSub or something like that to change the font style. Otherwise, you could just open the .ass file with any plain text editor - i don't recommend this as the number of entries is actually pretty much terrifying, thus find and replace might won't guarantee decent editing benefit.

also note, the fonts in .ass files is actually can be attached to .mkv file, if you did not have the font, whenever you burn-in subs manually you'll need related fonts in your Windows' Fonts directory. For instance, as i re-encode GATE, i will need to download OpenSans-Semibold.ttf as MeGUI didn't have any feature to add or extract attachment -cmiiw, the mkv metadata looks like:

Fyi, anyway if you want to add some attachment, you could use IFME project as a GUI - this thing actually give a finer control on H.265 encoder compared to MeGUI - again cmiiw.. but don't ask us to use it yet, we're slow in experimenting new method and rarely accept experimental approach, yes, perhaps we're conservative.

thanks RoriconKnight I've resolve the problem in my encodes which is not having the font (.ttf) used by the fansubbers.
I've extracted the attachments using MKVExtractGUI if anyone's wondering.
this my output before and after extracting the attachments. for comparison
