while encoding anime/cartoons one could use a xvid parameter "cartoon".
According to documentation (unfortunately not detailed enough) this
parameter adjusts Xvid encoding algorithm for anime/cartoons (taking
into account specifics of cartoons). But could we be a little bit more
specific about that!? There are actually two (different in terms of
paining technique used) types of cartoons; older cartoons which use
mostly solid color shapes, have sharp edges (lines) etc. and other new
ones with full palette of colors, shades, 3D, looking like ordinary
movies. Maybe it's not good to use "cartoon" parameter for such a
cartoons although they actually are cartoons.
