Another rainbow slab!
@paul What the heck is this? It looks so cool!
@jrc03c thanks! it's part of a new project I'm working on.
@paul really lovely graphics! do you have it also on your website, without mastodon compression?
@npisanti thanks! and not yet, but they will be there. That's the other half of the project ;)
Still working on tuning the ffmpeg/libx264 options, but maybe downloading the video improves things?
@npisanti can you try downloading and playing this one? I explicitly beefed up the specs in ffmpeg. Hopefully it should look/sound a bit better.
@npisanti nvm it's still compressing it.
@paul yes the graphics looks a bit blurry on close inspection (well also my eyes are a bit blurry so maybe i'm not the most accountable about blurriness)
Yeah I notice that too. These videos are also a tiny resolution, so I think some video players try to upscale + antialias them. It does this on fedilab, for example.
I don't think the engineers expected someone to make intentionally tiny videos. But, here I am :)
@paul it's really hard to do pixelperfect stuff nowadays, you can mostly do it only on your own website
It's a shame. I really like that pixel art aesthetic. All my videos on vimeo looked screwed up as well.
Fortunately, these videos are destined to be embedded in a <video> on my self-hosted website, and so far they seem to look good (enough) there.
@paul yes i like it too, and sometimes i feel recording a video of my monitor with an external camera looks better than doing an actual screencast
@paul wow, that looks/sounds great <3
@neauoire thanks! (Hopefully) more of these to come.
