Recruiting Encoders

For those who haven’t heard of us, project-gxs is a group of encoders who strictly releases 10bit re-encodes of anime.

Our team aims to achieve a balance between video quality and small file sizes.

We are looking to recruit two new encoders who can dedicate a few hours each week to encode ongoing shows.
Additional encodes are optional. Those familiar with encoding is highly preferred.
Windows OS and a decent CPU (4 logical cores) with decent internet speed is required.

Please email us at projectgxsteam@gmail or PM me on discord (lambchopz) with the following information below.

About the Author

I'm someone who loves anime, games, and novels/visual novels. I started watching anime several years ago in high school and have been in love with it since. A couple favorites of mine are: Darker than Black, Fate/Zero, Clannad, 5 Cm Per Second (Makoto Shinkai films), Princess Mononoke (Miyazaki films), and the Monogatari series. Some games I love are: Shadow of the Colossus, Half Life 2, Bioshock, Knights of the Old Republic, The Witcher 2, Battlefield, Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy... etc. As you can guess, I'm a fan of many genres as long as they're good (:

      So far we are only using x264 to encode our releases and will only adopt x265 once it is more developed and mainstream. We are also looking to recruit encoders who will do some ongoing shows. But if you are still interested please fill out the application.
