Are you Hi? Hi10 is recruiting!!

post image

All right guys, before the next season starts (Summer 2017), we have decided to explicitly recruit more encoders. The rationale behind this is... Ano-ne, mo... genkai desu, which means many of us are working on BDs or some projects that are tedious resulting in delayed / abandoned ongoing shows. There are a few like me who usually lurk around and cover the abandoned shows when they feel like it, but we believe we should just nip the bud in the evil. Therefore, we are hereby recruiting encoders openly.



What we basically need is someone who can encode shows, dedicate time / effort on the shows, strive to achieve good release, try to resolve bugs which shouldn't even be there in the first place. We are NOT looking for people who might end up delaying a release upto 3-4 weeks. Ongoing shows should not be delayed that much and this is the reason we want more encoders who can shorten this delay in our releases. If you think you are upto the task, you should stop by our discord channel: Hi10 Discord



If you are applying for this job, keep in mind that we are assuming the following for you:

  • You know how to OC an encode.
  • You have enough time to encode shows. You will be working for 1-3 ongoing shows in one season.
  • You will NOT be delaying your release to a point where zeust, or any staff member, starts to notice it.

If you can not commit yourself to above description, you are not suitable to take this task in the first place. It's in everyone's favor not to waste each other's time. It's not you, but me.



Lastly, if you're a good fit for us, let's have some awesome time and put together a work that will be remembered for a long time to come.

    1. You need to get some brain first, then a pair of eyes to see, read and understand things carefully. After that, you’d need at least one hand to use mouse(pad) so that you can click on the guides section of our site.
      As I said previously, this might prove difficult so you gotta get a really good pair of eyes.

    1. Like Zeust suggested, you should at least use a i5 for it. Also a desktop would be the best suit for it, since with i5 some encodes can take really long, and you dont want all that heat inside a laptop for so long.

      For the last, encoding at x265 vs x264 usually generates 5-6ºC more, so you will really be killing your machine with a laptop and extended encoding.

    2. does anyone have link how to OC encode easy to understand for me??
      i have see on the guide but it seem hard for me to understand.

      1. OC simply means using the chapters file to link two or more videos together. (You link them, not merge)
        Try playing around with mkvtoolnix-gui to edit the chapters file and try linking videos using the Segment UID field. After you understand how to link videos together, OC is not much of a big deal.
        (It may sound technical but it really isn’t that much)
        P.S: And don’t worry you’re not an idiot, its just that that guide is too difficult to understand.

  4. Hi~!

    I am really interested to help out with this! I am a newbie to encoding and stuff but I am really interested and determined to do it. I am currently going through the guides now and I have managed to encode a 400ish mb episode to 110 mb! I will practise and play around with it for a while before I am ready to apply. Keep up the good work guys! 😀

  5. Is the process automated to encode? as in you know generally what settings work of is this a process for each episode?

    I have a 1700 running stock with 32gb of underclocked ram, and once I get around to getting the bios update, likely clocking the cpu to at least a 1800x range.

    If the process is relatively automated, I could easily handle encoded some episodes for ya, I have the hardware to spare, but if this is a process for each episode, going to be honest, I tend to drag my ass on things like that.

    1. At this point, we’re not looking for someone who’d encode when he feels like it or if it’s not a drag. We want someone with commitment, regardless of the hurdles. About the automation process, OCing usually requires human supervision and quite an obstacle to automation.

      1. not so much when I feel like it, Like I said hardware to spare, if it was automated I could easily set it up at night, wake up, upload what’s done, rinse repeat till everything is done.

        however if every episode requires human touch and interaction, I would have to really like the show I am doing and no one else will touch it.

        Give me a heads up with a list of seriese no one will touch and I’ll see if anything is something I wanted and if the only ways it’s coming out is me pitching in, i’ll do my part.

        1. Even if it was automated, you need to at least do some quality check, having the encode done isnt enough, so never it would be an automated process.

        2. If you really want to help us, then you can allow one of the staff to have access to your spare hardware and someone who’s willing to commit some time to quality-check / debug encodes can put your hardware to good use. I guess what I am saying is that at some point this is gonna be a drag for you and we’ll end up with nothing after all.

  6. Is there a process for the quality check
    Or is it about watching what you encoded to check?

    1. The best way to shorten the quality-check process is to encode from a source that is very reliable like DameDesuYo or FFF. With such sources, you are sure that bugs are going to be very very rare and if you are experienced enough to encode well, you might not need to go through the every second of the episode, rather just check for the subtitle signs if they appear at correct times and that OP/ED are working correctly in OC.
      For unreliable sources, you might need to correct the timing of the subs, fix typos and things like that as well as look into OC. And if you are picking RAWS and then syncing subs from other source, that’s a lot more work.

  8. What is the use of OC encodes? We can skip the Opening right? Or is it to save the few MBs?

    1. Those “few mbs” added up to a good amount over the course of a series.

      Lets say the OP & ED both sat at 35-40mb each. U save that much per episode and over a standard season of 12 episodes that adds up to 480mb saved compared to a normal release.

      OC-ing is even better on BD 1080p since the files are usually quite large due to the extra 360p which allows us to save even more space.

      My OP for ansatsu S1 on the 1080p sat around 100mb each and that has 22 episodes. So that saved about 2.2gb on the OP alone and about 1.4gb on the ED.

    1. U have to become an encoder for hi10anime before u can upload anything on the site.

      If you’re interested in applying as an encoder, follows Zeust’s steps in this post and we’ll take a look at your work and see if it’s at the level we’re looking for.

    1. the first problem I noticed is
      Error x264 is not a recognized ….
      This means that x264 couldn’t be found.
      You need to add the x264 to the Environmental Path variable. (Look it up yourself)
