Is it something that's all that obvious in motion? Perhaps not. But the Euro encode is still superior.
I have better than 20/20 and a large monitor and I would still classify that as a slight improvement likely not visible in motion at all.

Slight? Her face is a morass of macroblocks in the US. But as I said, would it be overtly visible in motion? Doubtful. (Especially since I had very little trouble with the compression on the new UK Highlander restoration, folks be losing their minds over the caps )

Looked at it again for a while. Seriously just looks like a small grain difference to me. I don't see macroblocks. Weird. My monitor isn't pro-calibrated but it is set on a pro-calibrated "mode" for photoshop. I dunno.

It's glaringly obvious to me.

Okay. Below the earring I see a bit of smoother surface, and her freckles might be less defined higher up, but I don't see macroblocking at all. Could be the monitor, who knows.
