Re: Larger transcoded files than expected

Unreasonable quality target is inflating the encode size. Pick something more reasonable for 4K in the mid 20s.

Output size for quality based encoding depends on the input content (motion, detail, etc), not the input file size.

Re: Does anybody else have pre-configured bitrates in two-pass encoding mode?

https://github.com/donmelton/video_transcoding does, although a bit different than you're proposing: - he does single pass CRF encode with a bitrate cap - he also uses a quality-based override on a per-frame basis to avoid low quality frames just to satisfy the bitrate constraint This addresses the ...

Still need to see an activity log from an existing encode to know what you've done.

Re: Setup recommendation 1080p TS File into MP4 to save space

Start with the HQ 1080p preset. See what you do/don't like about the result.

Post your encoding log and your preferences/gripes for more specific suggestions.

I'd start with the same QP target and see how you like the result. Try a variety of content, high motion, detailed slow motion, etc.

An Activity Log is required for support requests. Please read How-to get an activity log? for details on how and why this should be provided.

Gotta see what you did; otherwise it's not a HB issue.

Yes that's better than the 4627v3. Either the 2660v3 or 2640v3 is your best choice, not much difference between them.

Re: H.265 NVENC 2 pass encoding under Windows

No, NVENC is for realtime applications, so there's no 2 pass option.

Not really, nVidia makes it a black box.

Re: [HELP] CPU choice for encoding

You can certainly make use of more than 8 cores, so I'd go with at least the 2640V3. You could do the 4627V3 but with diminishing returns it will be less than 20% faster.

The audio settings have nothing to do about notifying you when the processing is done. You need to use the application setting for an external program to call when done.

Re: 4x Full HD video to 1x 4K video (keep same quality)

You need a video editor to do the layout. Davinci Resolve is free.

No encoder or editor is able to respect your preferences about the video encoding being unchanged. Use an appropriate quality-based encoding target to meet your preferences; bitrate may be higher or lower.
