[edit] Description

SPresso (Spatial Pressdown) is a purely spatial script designed to achieve better compressibility without doing too much harm to the original detail.
SPresso was not designed for 1080p processing/encoding; due to its 3x3 kernel it works better on standard definition (SD) content like DVDs and possibly on 720p.
On noisy DVD/SD sources, compression gain usually is from 2% to 3% (light settings -> changes almost invisible) up to 10 to 12% (stronger settings -> slight, gentle softening, not very obvious).

[edit] Requirements

  • AviSynth 2.5.8 or later
  • Progressive input only
  • Supported color formats: YV12

[edit] Syntax and Parameters

SPresso (clip clp, int "limit", int "bias", int "RGmode", int "limitC", int "biasC", int "RGmodeC")

clip  clp =
Input clip.

int  limit = 2
Limit the maximum change for any given pixel.

int  bias = 25
Something like "aggessivity": '20' is a very light setting, '33' is already quite strong.

int  RGmode = 4
RemoveGrain mode for the luma (Y) channel. The default of "4" is the best in most cases.
Mode 19 and 20 might work better in other cases; if set to 0, luma will be copied from the input clip.

int  limitC = 4
Same as limit but for chroma.

int  biasC = 50
Same as bias but for chroma.

int  RGmodeC = 0
RemoveGrain mode for the chroma channels (UV) channels; by default the chroma is simply copied from the input clip.
To process chroma, set RGmodeC=4 (or 19, 20, or any other compatible mode).

[edit] Examples

SPresso with all default values:

SPresso(limit=2, bias=25, RGmode=4, limitC=4, tlimiC=50, RGmodeC=0)
