Re: Converting 4K SDR to HDR video

Cannot be done. You can do HDR to SDR (not necessarily with HandBrake), but you cannot add color information that isn't there in the first place (SDR -> HDR), with any software.

Re: Constant Quality vs Average Bit Rate

Wasn't he trying to get a minimum bitrate of 1,000 (with no limitation on the maximum)? I must admit I didn't follow this thread very closely, only saw the request for a minimum bitrate.

Re: Constant Quality vs Average Bit Rate

Looks like I used it for Aliens and Jurassic Park (1080p, H.264 High Profile, level 4.0 -> VBV 31250/25000), RF 20 with a crf-max of 25.5… My BD discs of Aliens (and to a slightly lesser extent, the first JP movie) have a lot of very fine grain, I noticed in a previous encode that VBV was very activ...

Re: Help With Handbrake Settings For Good Quality Output

Auto Passthru is just a multi-codec passthru with checkboxes; provided the DTS-HD checkbox is ticked and the source track is DTS-HD, then Auto Passthru and DTS-HD Passthru will behave exactly the same.

Re: Constant Quality vs Average Bit Rate

I’m not sure that would even work, it’s description says “It prevents x264 from reducing the ratefactor (aka "quality") below the given value even when doing so would violate VBV constraints.” If I set my CRF to 27 and my CRF-max to 20 wouldn’t that just give me a CRF 20 encode? Any vbv s...

There are multiple subtitle tracks in his input. The issue here is, HandBrake's Foreign Audio Search only works on DVD and Blu-ray format subtitles.

Re: Mediainfo doesn't give Audio and Video bitrate + subtitles

Per-track bitrate is custom metadata created by mkvmerge. HandBrake doesn't create it, but you can always remux its output with mkvmerge (via e.g. MKVToolnix GUI) to get them.

Correct, it's an HEVC elementary stream (as per the scan log). The audio must be another file elsewhere.

Re: Upscaling PAL DVD VOB files to 1080p/25?

Nothing useful as far as upscaling goes. HandBrake does have a good, but slow, nlmeans denoise filter which may help a bit on this type of source, if used at a low setting.

Still, we didn't answer all of his questions.

He should use the DTS-HD MA source track and forget about the second track (regular DTS).

It is possible with HandBrakeCLI. Use --help and look for the --pad filter section for syntax.

Re: Issue converting a DVD

HandBrake sometimes has trouble navigating some DVD structures, even after they've been decrypted. Applications like MakeMKV can convert DVD folder structures to MKV files and are better at dealing with problem discs.

Re: forced outupt

HandBrake is not ffmpeg. The advanced options are only for the video encoder (libx264, etc.).

There is a padding filter in HandBrake, but it may only be available in the nightly builds, I cannot remember for sure.

Re: Failed to Encode on only one chapter of my DVD-r

FWIW, you could have used HandBrake to convert the MKV to MP4 too ;-)

VLC has somewhat similar transcoding capabilities, but its interface for it is rather limited, IIRC.
