Re: File size vs video length

File Size (MegaBytes) = Bitrate (Mbps) x Time (Sec) x .125 Be sure to include audio bitrate! Your 7 min. video was encoded at a higher Bitrate than your longer one. RTM if you do not understand why the same "settings" do mot give the same " bitrate," Going forward, please refer to and provide your e...

Re: Green line on bottom of encode

1920x1080 25p/50p and 30p/60p source works for BluRay if flagged as 50i / 60i. If the mastering was done properly, it should just be a flag and the content is actually progressive (no filtering needed). There are some discs where it's actually interlaced, unfortunately. Agreed. I have come across b...

Re: Mov file to mp4

1081 is an illogical storage dimension. Most players will just add a garbage line. Pad or strip to the nearest even number. 1080 is the most logical.

That said, did you try simply renaming .MOV to .MP4? It works more often than not.

Re: Green line on bottom of encode

With BD sources, it is rare to need decomb or deinterlace. Exceptions exist, but most BD sources are not interlaced to begin with. So you can disable those filters, and get some additional conversion speed. With most BluRay Movie source, that is correct. Disregarding Ultra BD, which is a newer spec...

Wonder why this option still is vacant. changing the font and font size are vital to the watching experience.
Not if one is producing a media file in his own geographic region for his own use. A student of languages, perhaps?

Re: Handbrake only showing one episode on disc

So, you are encouraged to download Handbrake for free; and,
Start your own thread with your encode logs if you have questions.
Again, your fair use missive is unnecessary.

You know, it makes no difference if they are instructional or whatever.
Either they are encrypted or they or not. Handbrake does not decrypt.

Re: DVD rip quality problems

DVD is PAL or NTSC Standard Definition.
You cannot turn them into HD. It's that simple.
That's why you cannot upsample them in Handbrake GUI.

Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

If you are that far above file size, your settings are way above optimal .
It sounds like there is not so much motion detail in your film.
You are welcome to waste all the space you want, it won't do a bit of good.
"Optimal" means enough, but not too much. Make sense?

Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

I think it is important to know that throwing more well-intentioned bits at an encode that is already optimal makes it, well, ... bigger. "Optimal" quality is casually thought of as being around 0.995 SSIM, often occurring around CRF 18-20 (no lower) at least in x264. Integrity is so good these days...

Re: Intel Quick Sync vs. AMD VCE vs. AMD Video Core Next

Good summation.
I would add that with crf and veryfast, I can get "acceptably fast" encoding with x264-cpu, but with measurably better quality than on-chip solutions. "Less bad" isn't in my production core values.

It would be slower to encode with more ref frames.

They are stingy with bandwidth, so no worries.
Your upload bitrates can stay below 10Mbps, so yes I suggest x264 over MC or Sony AVC.

Re: DVD to Wistia - Suggestions?

Well, one would have to test that on a level playing field, which we did exhaustively in 2011.
At optimal settings (important!), x264 is measurably better than MC below 8-10 Mbps. At 12 Mbps, we couldn't measure or see anything definitive between the two.

*Note: Mainconcept defaults are not optimal.

You can render directly from Vegas to x264 using Happy Otter Script beta.

Sorry I guess this should question should probably go into devices and presets. I'll ask over there.
Isn't it a better question for Video Toolbox?
There's only so much you can do with that stuff, and Handbrake presets already have it more than covered.
