Re: Can handbrake retain video transparency when converting from webm to hevc?

No, I think Apple's VideoToolbox is the only encoder that supports alpha transparency in HEVC.

Re: 50% (!!!) larger files generated w/ version 141?

Given duplicate settings, there should *not* be any differences. Again, if differences are being applied "under the hood" then this needs explaining as to why. You don't have all the settings the same, as s55 helpfully pointed out: The 2nd major difference in settings is that you are usin...

Re: Question Regarding Constant Quality

Yes, lossy encoding will degrade with every subsequent encode. Each encode is trying to imperfectly reproduce the input, they have no idea what existed in prior generations.

.NET 5(.0.x) is not included with Windows 10 (yet? or ever?), so it's a seperate download for the current runtime.

Re: Does Handbrake for M1 Macs use the GPUs?

The hardware video encoding acceleration is on the same SOC as the CPU and everything else; the "but" in a question about GPU usage seemed misleading.

No, but it can use he hardware encoder if you select one of the VideoToolbox encoders.
I don't understand the use of "but" here, since the VideoToolbox encoders are not in any circumstance using the GPU on a M1 Mac.

Re: Intel Quick Sync quality dependency

Reference to the source bitrate depends a lot on the encoder and settings for the source! The hardware encoders are all about speed (and uniformly do very well here!), and may need an order of magnitude higher bitrates to match the software encoders. The quality of the hardware encoders depends prim...

Re: RAM Runs Low When Bulk Processing

That's your OS memory management caching parts of files it has seen used recently, frequently, or expects to be used soon (e.g. based on sequential reads). Unused (free) memory is literally a waste of money.
