Re: Transcode UHD mkv to JUST < 50GB to fit on 50GB BD-R DL: Best settings to shrink mkv to just under 50GB? DV and HDR?

Motion has an issue on my UHD BD player (Sony UBP-X800M2); will see if 'fast encode' helps and also reduce processing speed in HB (I had set it to 'ultrafast' for the test). That doesn't do what you seem to think it does. Oh, thanks. I was misinformed then. The person who suggested that option has ...

Shows you just how little HDR10 means.

Re: Size is not 1920x1080

HB autocrop found 88 pixels of black on the right border, and you chose autocrop, so they were cropped of. You can set cropping to some other value you prefer.

Why not just buy a Roku or something that can play files off a network share?

No transcoding, UDH BR authoring, disks to mess with, etc.

The quality scales aren't really the same on the different encoders.

Re: What the crop?

Same RF isn't constant quality across different encoder settings.

Need to compare objective quality metrics (and use the appropriate tunes), or do proper double blind subjective testing, for real results.

Re: What the crop?

The resulting quality is also different, since the big flat simple black areas change how the RF quality metric thinks its doing.

If you're targeting mid to low quality output, or it's 4K resolution, then no.

Re: Best settings for compressing AVI files from 720x480 Camcorder

Given how fast 480p will encode, I'd use slower x264 settings for this archival type encode. If you're going to edit them in the future, I'd also keep an encode (from the original AVI source) using the Production Standard preset. And check the results carefully for combing/etc before you toss the or...

Some, but not a lot. More reasonable settings may get you a more desirable tradeoff in performance vs efficiency.

Low 20s are reasonable values; higher for 4K, lower for HD.

Re: VideoToolBox not working on Apple Silicon M1

There's no matching, they're different metrics for setting quality; specifically x264's CRF incorporates a psychovisual model to vary the QP target depending on the content. Even when they're the same _on average_ they may differ in behavior for low/high motion or low/high detail scenes.

Rip to the SSD first using MakeMKV, then you can do a proper head to head comparison of the CPUs/ASICs.

Code: Select all

[20:21:19] vfr: 1014 frames output, 1672 dropped and 0 duped for CFR/PFR
Your real problem is dropping 60 fps content to 24 fps, not interframe compression.
