Re: 10 bit vs 12 bit video opinions

So, for my purposes, a 10-bit gradient is visually identical to 14-bits or more." While I agree in principle with the article, and I have advocated 10 bits for YUV digital intermediates since I ran similar tests in 2011, I find that statement a bit of a stretch. Bit depth has more to do than just r...

Set to Decomb, Same as Source, and Normal preset. Nothing fancy needed.

Re: Should I resize my video before Handbrake?

The downscaling method employed should not affect quality. Only the downscaling itself.
Upscaling is another kettle of fish.

Re: Should I resize my video before Handbrake?

With downscaling it makes no appreciable difference. Generally speaking, export source from Vegas and do the work in Handbrake.
XAVC-I is a good export format from Vegas.

Re: New Feature: 10bit HDR to 8bit SDR tone mapping

Nonsense.
Handbrake's downsampling and dithering algorithms are already the best in the business. Much better than commercial nonlinear editors. If you are seeing washed out colors, it is a REC 709 flag mismatch, and nothing else.

The video was created from a large AVI with Lagarith/wave audio encoding. I always do complicated editing using lossless encoding. The AVI plays perfectly. That's likely part of the problem, which has been reported with other AVI codecs as well. Suggest you try XAVC-I, DNxHD, or ProRes for your dig...

The HD8 can handle x265 (aka. H265), so I'd change that because you can get much better quality per byte.
The correct way to say this is that h265 will give you the same quality in fewer bytes, up to a point. Street talk is just that.

Re: 10 bit vs 12 bit video opinions

Now, downsampling from 10 bit source to 8 bit delivery, Handbrake shines in reducing banding, moire, dithering and quantization noise over other popular resampling algorithms. I've proven that, and I have always used a 10 bit YUV intermediate to Handbrake for 10 bit and uncompressed 8 bit source (se...

Re: 10 bit vs 12 bit video opinions

What surprised me was the 10-bit was smaller than 8-bit! Encoding 8 bit source in a 10 bit wrapper just adds air; no dithering takes place because there is no bit resampling, just the same data in a bigger box. Your reported file sizes prove that beyond a shadow of a doubt, and so would a histogram...

Re: Inter- or intra-frame compression? (preset "Production Standard")

I'd like to use intra-frame compressed footage (ProRes, DNx, AVC Intra etc.) simply because it's easier to work with inside the NLE. And less glitchy :) As mentioned, all-Intra x/264 is a brontosaurus. For any NLE, I/P only is a most useful intermediate and easy on your system. Not even a little "g...

Re: Inter- or intra-frame compression? (preset "Production Standard")

Handbrake recompresses your video. For most conversion purposes, like sanitizing vfr for Premiere, the Normal or Baseline preset at rf18 looks great. They avoid compression that is unwanted during editing. Increasing the number of reference frames doesn't hurt, and is still almost as fast. All-Intra...

That's simply not possible with two vastly different encoders. There is almost no correlation between settings and relative results.
