Re: Ai upscaling - 1080p to 8k to 1080p

Much like the x264 psychovisual optimizations, you can do things that look better subjectively, but objectively have reduced the quality of the video.

Re: Changing Bitrate Settings

Eh, a lot of them are just cheap and lousy encoders.

I'd start with the 1080p Fast preset, and maybe adjust the encoder preset a bit slower. See what that gets you on typical footage.

Re: H.265 (Nvidea NVEnc) locks at 30% GPU

GPU encoding doesn't actually use the GPU, it uses some extra video encoding hardware bolted on to the side of the GPU, so you're probably looking at the wrong utilization.

GPU encoding isn't expected to use much CPU.

If the source is correctly mastered and flagged 10-bit HDR, HB will output correctly converted 8-bit SDR.

Re: [Question] x264 vs x265 - Quality Difference with same Bitrate?

The same video encoder presets for x264 and x265 set different options, since they're different codecs and encoders.

Re: Optimal cores for Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset?

The memory bandwidth requirements would be on the uncompressed video; no relation to the compressed video size.

Re: Optimal cores for Apple 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround preset?

Your post doesn't really reflect how SMT works... there's 2n virtual threads scheduled on to n physical cores. There's not separate groups of virtual cores and physical cores.

Re: NVENC versus CUDA and Hardware Encoding Performance

CUDA encoding has been dead and gone for many generations, it never worked well. NVDEC/ENC is on the main GPU ASIC, not a separate ASIC. The NVENC documentation is a bit garbage, but the available options don't result in much variation anyway. It's great for quick throw away encodes and realtime cap...

Re: Handbrake and AMD Ryzen 3900x

That's far from impossible, there are users with particular preferences who do day-long encodes. It's only an impediment if you're trying to do realtime transcoding.

Re: Can someone explain me those x264 vs x265 SSIM results?

Without tune SSIM, the SSIM comparison is meaningless; the encoder is intentionally doing things that look good but have a negative impact on SSIM.

Re: Best settings to compress vertical videos of different sizes

It sounds like you're running into issues with vertical video vs presets configured for horizontal video, and then confused by anamorphic. To preserve the resolution you should make your own preset with no resolution limit. As a workaround, you can indeed use the 4K presets (at least until you get 4...

Re: Output files are too small

All the HDR data has been thrown out by HB, and the 10-bit video converted down to 8-bit before being blown back up to 10-bit, so there's a fair bit lost here.

But if it looks fine to you, enjoy the result. I'd even suggest pushing the RF several points higher for 4K for an even smaller output.
