- As a game with exceptional grind, Diablo 3's run is subject to the same kind of heavy-handed editing that Divinity: Original Sin and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen were.
- Some of my edits are kind of abrupt/messed up at some parts because I wasn't paying attention. Under normal circumstances I would fix and re-encode, but each segment took an upwards of 21-26 hours to encode, so I wasn't too keen on re-encoding for one or two slip ups.
- Diablo 3's 128 color palette tends to incite aggressive compression from codecs, requiring me to devote significantly lower CRF to these encodes than normal. As a result, the filesizes are rather large despite the cellphone graphics. Yes, the pre-rendered cinematics really do just look that bad. The encode handled the d1 post-process filter almost flawlessly.
- I encountered issues with audio at several points, so there are some odd inconsistencies. For example, some segments use Vegas compressor settings and some use my preferred Audition setup. The reasons are long-winded and stupid, like source audio getting totally mangled because of some strange interaction with one of the co-op players lagging and the jumbled audio stream corrupting fraps' waveforms. Or something. I don't actually know. But the end result is the audio streams were fucked and didn't want to behave nicely with Audition. I eventually figure out a semi-viable way to fix these messes, but the end result was never quite perfect for some parts.
