x265 Sharpness and Detail (Best Settings?)


I'm looking to find settings that increase detail and sharpness. In turn, I'm also looking for settings that apply blurring or softness and can be turned off.

Here are the settings that I know of so far that do this.
  1. subme=7 (A sharpener, detail increase)
  2. no-deblock / deblock (Blurring/detail loss the more deblock is used)
  3. no-sao / sao (High Blur)
  4. no-strong-intra-smoothing / strong-intra-smoothing (Smoother/Blur)
  5. psy-rd=-- & psy-rdoq=-- rdoq-level=-- (Detail increase as the cost of accuracy - Can look over-digital)

These are all the detail increase settings that I know of so far. Are there any more? I saw some things on QBlur, I don't know what it does, because I haven't researched it. Just because blur is in the title made me think, but is this anything that controls sharpness and detail?

Are there any more? My goal is to get the most detailed image possible use x265 (which is notorious for having a soft image). However, if anything goes over the top, like, giving an edge-enhanced look or heavy ringing, I will back off. The goal is maximum blur removal and ultra-high detail without looking overly digital, this is why I'm trying to back off from using psy-rd and rdoq, I just don't like the look personally.

Thank you.
