Re: Fails on UHD (av1) files

You can choose any preset with a 4K or higher resolution target, a preset with no resolution target, or adjust the resolution target and save your own preset.

Re: Use Handbreak to copy DVD from specific time

HB's ability to start an encode at a specific time depends on HB's ability to get to that point in the video.

You'll need to use something intended for DVD ripping to get a clean copy, or a copy with the error portion removed.

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

If you're going to edit later, keep the originals or make an editing-friendly (which will probably not be much smaller) encode with the Production presets. For lossless merging you can use ffmpeg or mkvmerge or probably one of the mp4 muxers for your platform. You can do this with the M2TS files or ...

Re: Difference between HB and Quicktime export conversion

HandBrake is highly configurable to provide a wide variety of speed, size, and quality tradeoffs; so any difference in speed is trivial to address.

For editing, the Production presets in HB would be a good starting point.

Re: Error with hardware encooding: No NVENC capable devices found

H.264 has a maximum frame size of 139,264 macroblocks (16x16). 5400x2700 is 223,446 macroblocks, so that won't work.
H.265 has a maximum frame size of 35,651,584 pixels (well, luma samples, but same here with HB), which 5400x2700 fits in.

Either of those options are H.265 encoders.

Re: Converts only 5 seconds of a 17 second Security camera DAV clip

HB thought it had reached the end of the video stream. Video security systems are notorious for malformed output.

Also the source container says it's only 3.7 seconds of video:

Re: Constant crashing with 4k video

Yeah, I've restarted and not going to lie, I've never used event viewer but when I checked nothing seems to show up for handbrake. But I think I found a solution after trying other presets and even using an older version that was actually working albeit on another pc/laptop. It seems like handbrake...

Re: Constant crashing with 4k video

Define "crash" in this context. Machine stops working? Program closed by operating system? System slows to a crawl? Rude noises emanate from the case as smoke rises? The log just stops, which normally would mean that the operating system detected a problem. That would create a system log ...

Re: Set a Bitrate limit when using CQ

With an RF that low, you're better off with keeping the 1080p frame size and going to an RF in the low 20s.

Although encode time will be slower unless you pick a faster preset; about one faster on the list should do it.

Re: How accurate is my idea of bitrate/filesize estimation?

Sure, it will get you some reasonable result. 95% confidence within 1%? Probably not. But why are you doing this in the first place? If you want to keep the grain, you should use the grain tune, and expect large output files. If you want to obliterate the grain, use nlmeans filter with the grain tun...

The big question is... why?

Your source file doesn't have storage = display, so why would your output?

Re: Retaining Film Grain

Fairly certainly you changed the encode settings, or the input file wasn't what you thought it was.

That's why we have to see logs, users can't reliably articulate what they actually did.

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

Slow-mo isn't the problem, but there's a lot of predicted or bi-predicted frames in the small H.264 version, which the editors struggle with for decode performance.

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

You need to add deinterlacing or decombing since your source is interlaced. May help shink the file size a bit.
