    Movie Length:
    - Allowed sizes are 175MB, 350MB and multiples of 1 CD (700MB).
    - The following formula will guide you to get the appropriate size:
    target-size = VIDEO-FPS * VIDEO-RUNTIME(in mins) * 0.28
    Use the target-size value to index the MAXIMUM allowed size, examples:
    target-size = 25.000fps * 98min * 0.28 = 686, MAX size is 1 CD
    target-size = 23.976fps * 49min * 0.28 = 329, MAX size is 1/2 CD
    target-size = 18.000fps * 65min * 0.28 = 328, MAX size is 1/2 CD
    VIDEO-RUNTIME is in minutes only, no fractions, and rounded up to the
    next full minute, e.g. 104 min and 5 secs = put 105 min inside the
    formula. The following table describes the MAXIMUM size allowed for
    each runtime in minutes:

    FPS 175MB 350MB 700MB 1400MB 2100MB
    23.976 -26 26:01-52 52:01-104 104:01-208 208:01-312
    25.000 -25 25:01-50 50:01-100 100:01-200 200:01-300
    29.970 -20 20:01-41 41:01-83 83:01-166 166:01-250

    - The above table indicates the MAXIMUM size allowed to encode at, but
    it is ripper's discretion to use smaller values, e.g. 110 min PAL movie
    can use AT MOST 1400MB but can also use lower sizes such as 700MB.
    - If at the lowest resolution allowed and MP3 audio bitrate of 128 kbps
    average I/P quant is above 4.5, releases may jump 1 size up (e.g. 2 CDs
    may be used instead of 1). Such cases MUST provide proper proof and
    explanation in the nfo.
    - If the formula gives a value below 100MB, sizes smaller than 175MB are
    allowed, at ripper's discretion.
    - MAXIMUM CD media capacity value is 736966656 bytes = 719694 KB = 702 MB
    - MINIMUM CD media capacity value is 723517440 bytes = 706560 KB = 690 MB
    - When using multiple CD releases, releases MUST utilize the full
    burnable media capacity for each CD used (each CD must conform to the
    690MB minimum).


    TV Length:
    - All Episodes <RETAIL rips> are obligated to follow these rules.
    - Allowed sizes in MB are 175, 233, 350 and multiples of 700 (an extra
    OPTIONAL size is 550MB, see below).
    - Use the same target-size formula listed above to determine appropriate
    sizing. Some examples are:
    target-size = 25.000fps * 20min * 0.28 = 140, MAX size is 175 MB
    target-size = 23.976fps * 60min * 0.28 = 403, MAX size is 700 MB
    target-size = 29.970fps * 25min * 0.28 = 210, MAX size is 233 MB
    * VIDEO-RUNTIME is in minutes only, no fractions, and rounded up to
    the next full minute, e.g. 41 min and 5 secs = put 42 min inside the
    formula.
    - 550MB may be used at ripper's discretion when target-size is above
    260MB.
    - If the formula gives a value below 100MB, sizes smaller than 175MB are
    allowed, at ripper's discretion. It is also ripper's discretion to use
    smaller sizes than those targeted by the formula for each specific
    runtime and framerate (e.g. a release that should be 350MB according to
    the formula may also be released at 233MB).


    AUDIO:
    - MUST be VBR MP3 or Studio AC3.
    - ABR is considered a VBR technique.
    - MUST be STEREO for STEREO sources, MONO for MONO sources
    (Any audio track with identical channels is considered a MONO source).
    - MP3 tracks must keep the original frequency as it was on the source's
    audio: e.g. 48khz for 48khz and 44.1khz for 44.1khz.
    - Mono or Dual Mono (1+1) AC3 is forbidden; use mono MP3.
    - MP3 audio must be normalized. Stereo sources must use stereo or
    joint-stereo encoding mode. Mono sources must use mono encoding mode;
    dual-mono is forbidden.
    - Encoding or re-encoding audio to AC3 is strictly forbidden, except in
    in the case of HD retail source (see Source related notes).
    - Use of AC3 is at the ripper's discretion, but should be used wisely.
    Choice of AC3 or MP3 is not a technical flaw except as otherwise noted.
    - Multi-language audio tracks are FORBIDDEN! (Use INTERNAL)


    VIDEO:
    - Keyframe:
    MUST be <=20 seconds and MUST be inserted according to scene changes
    and framesizes as determined by the codec or encoding application.
    - Group watermarks of any kind on the video are forbidden.
    - English retail releases may not contain foreign language text overlays
    from localized versions.


    Framerate:
    - MUST be as close to original source framerate as possible.
    - In some cases PAL movies need to be IVTC'd (e.g. to 24fps). Therefore
    using a PAL source is not an excuse for lack of IVTC.
    - Hybrid sources are left at ripper's discretion if to IVTC or not.
    Ripper should mention and provide proof to any claim for ITVC or lack
    thereof.


    Codec:
    - MUST BE XviD (all DivX codecs are banned).
    - MUST use 2 pass technique during encoding.
    - No dupes based on codec type, use INTERNAL!


    Resolution and Aspect Ratio:
    - Width: 576 - 640 pixels for movies with an AR of 1.70-3.00
    512 - 640 pixels for movies with an AR of 1.00-1.69
    - Width and Height must be multiples of 16.
    - Cropping is required such that black borders are cropped to their
    maximum. In the case that the video presents changing ARs, the video
    must be cropped such that no frame is overcropped.
    * Over- or undercropping by more than 1 pixel is considered a technical
    flaw, although it is preferable to crop the 1 pixel out.
    - Video encodes must be within 4% of the original aspect ratio.
    Calculating AR % error: (Original AR - Release AR)/Original AR x 100
    - Non-retail video sources may not have the usual retail aspect ratio
    due to different processing. All releases should be based on the actual
    source AR, not on retail AR listed on IMDB or other sources.


    Subtitles:
    - OPTIONAL (ONLY if all other requirements have been met).
    - Subtitles MUST be packed in a RAR file with the most compression
    available. This RAR file shall be placed in a directory named 'Subs'
    along with an SFV file containing standard checksum information for
    that RAR. The subtitles must not be packaged in the main RARs for the
    release and the RAR file containing the subtitles must not be listed in
    main SFV for the release.
    - Vobsub packs must have the .sub file packed with the MOST compression:
    subs.rar = [ <avi-name>.idx + <avi-name>.rar = (<avi-name>.sub) ]
    - Burned subtitles are only permissible when present in the source. If
    the subtitles overlay both active video and matting (black bars),
    cropping to the bottom of the subtitles is permissible, and an equal
    amount of matting shall be left at the top. If the burned subtitles
    overlay only matting, they must be OCR'ed and cropped out.
    - English subs on non-English releases MUST fit in the standard size
    with the rest of the release. All other subs are considered optional
    and are not required to fit in the standard release size.
    - English subs on non-English releases must be synced with the video.
    - Foreign releases (non-English spoken) lacking English subtitles MUST be
    tagged with the spoken language. Releases with English subtitles MUST
    NOT be tagged with the spoken language. A release containing English
    subtitles after a foreign-tagged release is not considered a dupe,
    regardless of whether or not the foreign-tagged release has English
    subs.
    - Subtitles on multiple-CD releases must be split. Inclusion of non-split
    subtitles in addition to the split subtitles is encouraged.
    - Custom subtitles are not allowed on retail sources. They may be used
    only with non-retail sources. Propers for incorrect or missing dialogue
    on custom subtitles are not allowed; release a subpack!
    - Multi-language subtitles cannot be used as a basis for a dupe.
    - English subbed (with original spoken language) may follow a dubbed
    release (in any language); use SUBBED tag.


    Packaging:
    - All releases MUST be AVI.
    - Must be packed with RAR and broken into 15 or 20 MB volumes.
    Each AVI for a multiple-CD release must be packaged into separate RAR
    volumes.
    - Filenames (even subpack rar file) MUST be unique (to avoid dupe).
    - Compression is not allowed.
    - Recovery and MD5 record are recommended.
    - Must have an SFV included for each CD.
    - Must have an NFO.
    - NFO SHOULD INCLUDE:
    Group name
    Title
    Actual XviD release date
    DVD release date
    Theatrical release date (US preferably)
    Video size
    Resolution / Aspect Ratio
    Audio codec / Audio bitrate
    Video bitrate
    Movie runtime
    IMDB / Amazon / Any other DVD site info link
    Number of rars per CD (e.g. 50x15MB)
    XviD build
    Packed Bitstream
    Maximum consecutive B-frames


    Credits:
    - Credits may be encoded at a lower bitrate unless they contain scenes
    like bloopers or continuation of story.
    - Cutting credits on RETAIL sources is not allowed.


    Samples:
    - Sample is required and must have a unique name for each release.
    - 1 full minute in length and in a separate folder marked as 'Sample'.
    - MUST be taken from the video, NOT encoded separately.
    - Source samples are recommended for any rip that is deemed questionable:
    no IVTC possible on source, IVTC to 24.975fps, etc.


    Propers:
    - Propers are only permitted in the case of a technical flaw in the
    original release (e.g. bad.ivtc, interlacing, oversized).
    - Propers MUST include a note in the NFO file detailing the reason.
    - Releases not nuked on release lists and/or sites MUST include
    original sample of the technical flaw in the release sample dir.
    - Qualitative propers are not allowed, nor are propers based on
    decisions made by a ripper (e.g. AC3 or MP3).
    - Propering a release done under a previous ruleset timeline is allowed
    if it has a technical flaw, such as bad.ar, bad.ivtc, over.cropping.
    Other propers acceptable are propers based on releases that did not
    follow previous guidelines at the time they were pred.
    - Releases containing hardcoded subs may be propered by non-hardsubbed
    video. Original release SHALL NOT be nuked.
    - Propering a release when a working fix is released is not allowed.
    - Sizefixes are not allowed.
    - Propers based upon the compliance with new instances of TXD2K9 are
    allowed only for releases after 2009-03-05.


    WS vs. FS:
    - WS or FS name tags on the release name are allowed.
    - A WS release after an FS release (and vice versa) requires proof that
    the new release contains more picture area than the original release
    (provide sample from the original release or JPG screenshot of the same
    frame in both releases showing additional area). A release not
    documenting additional picture area is considered a DUPE.
    - Wider wide screen where more of the original source is visible is valid
    & not considered a dupe but should be tagged as WS not PROPER. Original
    release should not be nuked. Provide proof as listed above.
    - Letterboxed DVDs are not considered FS even if the aspect ratio flagged
    on the disc is 4:3; only active picture area should be considered.


    Special Movie Editions:
    - Allowed: DC, EXTENDED, UNCUT, REMASTERED, UNRATED, THEATRICAL, CHRONO,
    SE (or any other special edition, e.g. AE).
    - Special Edition releases with same time length as previous released
    versions of the movie shall be considered dupes.
    - Shorter cut version of a movie after a longer version was released is
    allowed (e.g. THEATRICAL), and MUST be mentioned in the dirname.
    - Remastered movies after the original have been released are allowed
    only if one of the releases is BLACK AND WHITE and the other is colour.
    Everything else use INTERNAL! (Remastered DVD releases that were nuked
    in the past and were colour after black&white and vice versa, shall not
    be unnuked and shall not be duped!)
    - Extras released in a special movie edition can not be used as a basis
    for a dupe, unless released separately (and are not dupes of previous
    releases).
    - Homemade rips are not allowed (Use INTERNAL!).
    - NOTE: PAL - NTSC length difference comes from the no. of frames per
    second and not extra footage.


    Directory and File Naming:
    - All releases need to include production year.
    - DO NOT indicate ripping method, DVD/XviD release date, genre, audio
    which was used (no AC3) or anything else! (ONLY WITHIN THE NFO)
    - Movie distribution tags e.g. FESTIVAL, STV, LIMITED or TV (TV tag
    is used for TV movies only) are allowed and shall be used wisely and
    correctly.
    - READ.NFO tag is allowed, but shall not be abused.
    - Other permitted tags are: WS/FS (rules above), PROPER, REPACK, RERIP,
    REAL, RETAIL, EXTENDED, REMASTERED, RATED, UNRATED, CHRONO, THEATRICAL,
    DC, SE, UNCUT, INTERNAL, DUBBED, SUBBED, FINAL, COLORIZED.
    * Use RERIP for ripping issues and REPACK for packing issues.
    * RERIPs/REPACKs must use different file names from previous release.
    - Acceptable characters in naming a directory include (NO spaces or
    double dots - single dots or underscores ONLY):

    ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
    abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
    0123456789.-_

    - Releases that are more than 1 CD MUST be named CD1, CD2, CD3 and so
    on ('disc1' and others are NOT allowed).

    읕컴[ NOTES TO THE RULES ]컴켸


    Source related notes:
    - HD retail may be used as source only if no DVDRip has already been
    released (and vice versa). Such releases must be tagged accordingly
    (e.g. BDRip, HDDVDRip).
    - When using AC3 on a rip from HD retail source, re-encoding DTS, LPCM,
    TrueHD, DTS-HD and 640kbit/s AC3 to 448kbit/s AC3 is mandatory.
    - Re-encoding material of any transcoded source is strictly forbidden!
    - HD retail rip released after 1080p/720p needs source proof (a raw m2ts
    sample including all audio/subtitles tracks) in sample dir.
    - R5 is not considered retail.
    - Non-studio audio must be tagged accordingly, e.g. LINE audio.
    * Releases provided with studio audio do not dupe releases with non-
    studio audio. The reverse does not apply!
    - The use of sources like CAM, TS, TC, Workprint, SCREENER, Laserdisc
    etc. MUST be tagged with source in the dirname and must adhere to ALL
    TXD2K9 rules!
    - DVD Screeners shall be clearly marked in the directory name and the
    nfo shall contain presence of studio watermarking, black&white scenes
    and counters or lack thereof.


    Internals:
    - INTERNALS should follow all TXD2K9 rules and are exempt from the time
    length rules.
    - Multi-language audio tracks are allowed. Multiple languages should be
    interleaved into the AVI, with a graphedit filter for each appropriate
    audio stream.
    - Other codecs and containers are allowed for experimental purposes.
    - INTERNAL dirfix should not be used as a basis of avoiding a nuke.


    Ripping related notes:
    - MAXIMUM bitrate must not exceed 4854 for more than a second and must
    not exceed 8000 kbps ever. DivX Home Theatre and MTK (not 6000)
    profiles follow these guidelines.
    - Quantizer matrix MUST be H.263 or MPEG. Custom matrices are forbidden
    due to lack of standalone support.
    - Pixel shape MUST be square.
    - Quarterpixel/GMC are forbidden due to lack of hardware support.
    - The use of ITU-R (Gknot function) is not recommended.

    Don't be so critical. Scene Rules keep the standard and quality equal. It creates a balance. Thing is when you download a scene release you know what your getting is quality and your satisfied.

    Umm...I agree...

    At least the 'kids' can spell when they write scene rules. Some of the release groups need to learn some decent grammar/punctuation .

    Why are these peeps still dragging out the Xvid codec? It's dead just leave it.

    x264 FTW

    The reason for Xvid is because of the file size difference, most people prefer a large download then a small one. But still they the rules are whacked out.

    But the x264 codec is far more superior than the Xvid and with ISP increasing their monthly quota's/line speeds it shouldn't even be a problem.

    but it still is...broadband is not nowhere near 50% here, so go figure, and I'm only at 1.5mbps, so the smaller 350mb file is much easier than a 1.6 gb file But I still don't like those stupid rules.
