I have used MeGUI to rip a few anime DVDs (16:9 at 2000 bitrate with deinterlacing, the show was from 2005 I think) and those look great. Now I am trying to rip my Gundam 00 dvds and have run into a few problems. I've tried both 3000 bitrate which gives me this: http://www.sendspace.com/file/4rq5sa Obviously not wanting such blocks in my final file, I tried again at 4000 bitrate and got these: http://www.sendspace.com/file/2g0wju and http://www.sendspace.com/file/iu3g96 The blocks are still there. Why? Is there some setting that I'm not aware of? Am I just not using a high enough bitrate? This also occurs on a DVD of a series from 1990. I know that there is no way that THAT could be HD video, so why would that also do it? I'm not an expert but have learned a bit from changing settings over many encodes, but this problem still persists. I managed to subdue interlacing, but now cannot get rid of blocky artifacts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
