    Hey dude could you make a video about how you make.. videos?
    I absolutely love the visual effects and the way you present the things you say in your videos.
    What software do you use?
    What is the process?
    Is it really hard or does it just take a long time?
    I wanna be able to get my point across so easily and concisely too like you do online! How do you do it?!

    60 fps or above is way more important (to me at least) than higher resolution. I am continually astonished that we still have media in 24 fps in 2019

  • Pocket Calculator

    Since 2K and 4K are just 1080p multiplied by a natural number, 1080p content played back on a 2k or 4k screen will not be distorted at all, and there is no noticeable difference between native 2k/4k videos and upscaled 1080p video on those screens at a distance, because the finer details are almost impossible to dicern at a distance.
    Not that it matters because the film and TV industry purposedly blurs out finer details on 2k and 4k recordings since nobody really wants to see the actor's pores and beard stubs all the time.

    Holy s*** his slides and transitions were seriously amazing. That was some quality work. I was really intrigued by that. A little fast but it went perfectly with what he was saying. Anyways I just wanted to say that was really well organized. Way better than what I've seen on some other channels.

  • EmptySora_

    Frankly, when I watch anime from Crunchyroll on my TV, I usually don’t use 1080p/i and instead opt for say 480, since because where I end up laying down is far enough from the TV, and my nearsightedness is bad enough that I really can’t tell the difference. 1080p/i usually ends up massacring my internet connection anyway.
    Two things I won’t ever understand:
    • Why people use more than one monitor, aside from using one main monitor, and dedicating the others to certain windows.
    • Why people absolutely MUST have such ridiculously hi-res TVs or videos: there ain’t no way you need THAT much detail.

    Steve Brandon 2 days ago

    I never watch TheXvid videos at anything higher than 480p and only use the HD options for screencaps. I have an older laptop and HD resolutions are too heavy for my browser plus the laptop screen is small enough that 480p looks fine even full screen.

    When watching livestreams, I usually just run it at 144p so that there's no stuttering, though, if there's a lot of text, I'll bump it up to 240p.

  • GermanCubeSolver YOLO

    I have a 960p display on my PC, 1080p on my phone and I am happy. Also, I only watch in 720p, since it is enough for me and last year, we were on vacation for 3 weeks and the internet was "only" capable of 360p and It was fine for me. Sure, 480p or 720p is better, but definatly not neccesary, let alone 4/8K

    "Like, the powers are, like, actually..." (deleted dialogue:) "...metaphysical. Like, more realistic than the real world. It would be, like, so trippy. I'd use a blend of 4k and 8k to really capture that ultra-realism sensation. But I think we'd have to project it on the moon to really reap the full benefit of that."

    whats really missing here is HDR colour for consumer products, that is really a mess. also I like to have a bit more resolution when shooting and then editing to do things like zooms, pans and stabilization afterwards. there must be a distinction also for consumer video between recording and playback, in the latter more than HD is rarely necessary

    moar pixels = moar better.
    but really though, the importance of resolution (and anti-aliasing) depends on the type of content. 2D animation and text benefit a lot from it, as do things where very small details make a difference (like Planet Earth).
    Now I'm expecting an episode on _bitrate_ that explains different videos of the same resolution can look to have different quality, and why sometimes selecting a resolution on youtube that is higher than your screen resolution can make a difference (I think, anyways... I'm not up to date on youtube compression strategy)

    It's been way too long since I've seen one of your videos show up in my feed! Honestly, anything above 1080p and my 40 year old eyes can't tell the difference. It's all about the lighting, cinematography and talent. Remember that the Beatles recorded some of their most legendary music on a 4-track tape recorder. Very nice work as usual!

    Dear Captain Disillusion, could you do an analysis on this video? I'm sure there's a TheXvid counter part. The casings from the gun don't eject, so I figure there's a little slight of hand happening.

    One thing that confused me until I researched it: 1080p refers to horizontal lines, but 4K refers to the number of vertical columns. Because, y'know, calling it 1440p just doesn't sound as big or cool.

    No seriously. It seems like your running out of content anyway...your next targets being nasa, space x. Hours of content to rip apart. Videos making outrageous claims seem to get your attention but not nasa and space x?????!!!!!!!!?????

    You should do a related episode about bitrates and compression in streaming. 4k is unpopular on youtube because it gets hit with some pretty harsh compression which drops the effective perceived detail level to somewhere on par with 1080p. If the 4k version of a video is roughly the same size file as a 1080p version, it clearly doesn't carry any more detail.
