Re: Help with x264 enccoding for Bl-ray authoring

While reading up on TMPGENC, which seemed a likely candidate, it appears they've turned their attention to developing the PGMX file format, which is boasting Menus, Slideshows, etc.

Re: Help with x264 enccoding for Bl-ray authoring

If I'm reading correctly, TMPGENC will encode x264, but it is not mentioned for smart rendering or BD authoring.

Re: Help with x264 enccoding for Bl-ray authoring

I wonder what consumer authoring programs proactively support x264 without recompression, having looked through that article.
There is a broad disclaimer but no actual list, and my previous tries have been fruitless.

Re: Help with x264 enccoding for Bl-ray authoring

If you import x264 to BluRay authoring software, it will re-encode it to match its own requirements.
It will not smart render to BDAV/BDMV format (M@TS), at least I have seen no examples.

Re: Will handbrake use enhanced sharpening as in the new Topaz product

Handbrake is designed as a video encoder, not an editor.
I have tested Topaz, and it improves the appearance (but not accuracy) of upscaled video.
Based on experience, I would say "Probably not in the near future."

Re: Problem with file size

RF encoding, the most efficient method, neither predicts nor controls files sizes, period. Your source will determine the outcome, and obviously your current source is different than your previous source. Raising your RF will reducing individual file size somewhat, with a corresponding loss of quali...

The link that @Rodeo gave seems relevant to that question.
Perhaps he can give some examples of using crf-max in concert with vbv-bufsize and vbv-maxrate to maintain more overall control.

Re: Constant Quality vs Average Bit Rate

Setting vbv-bufsize and vbv-maxrate to the same value will effectively raise the minimum bitrate, which is what you are hinting at. However, you will have to experiment in RF mode, because it is a little unpredictable with different sources. See here for examples. https://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopi...

I don't think you're ready to dive into BluRay Movie authoring and duplication just yet, but TMPGenc Authoring is widely used if you're curious.
You seem on your way to making something that will work in your disc player. Stick to formats that are as close to the original as possible, and carry on.

Handbrake has always been able to produce files that you can drop on a BD disc as data files and play in many players. Absolutely no question about that. However, the first sentence of your original post states: I want to burn backups of some of my original UHD Blu Ray movies on 50GB BD-R DL discs T...

Re: Merge avi's by name

With AVI files, simple concatenation in a Windows prompt will work as well as anything.

Code: Select all

COPY /B 05-07-06_20-5300.avi+05-07-06_20-5400.avi Output.AVI
To be clear, you can add your AVI files to Handbrake's Queue list and output a single MP4 file, as well.

Re: Not mucth difference in filesize between H265 and H264

I'm satisfied if i can get half the size of original file.
Then you would use the x265 software encoder in Handbrake. Half the size of QSV for "roughly" the same quality.

They are video with dialogue/speech audio, so 48kHz are useless (wasted space).
