Re: Color and Brightness settings in Mp4

What do you mean by save color and brightness? Handbrake keeps the original levels unless you are converting a 10bit source. Also depending on the player, it can effect the output. I know VLC tends to oversaturate and add a bit of contrast a tad on my Mac vs QuickTime.

Re: Compression Increasing Video Size

There is no guarantee that you will get smaller video files. Depending on the how much movement and motion there is in the source video, handbrake tries to retain as much detail as possible. Also the input video format, if you have a hevc video and convert to h.264, you may end up with a larger vide...

Re: Handbrake dubbing on my Mac just slowed WAY down

Looks like you have a lot of read errors from your dvd. Handbrake is officially not a dvd ripper, even though it can rip dvds if they are not encrypted, but offers no error correction. Try using a real dvd ripper, like Makemkv and feed that file to handbrake. Without the logs of when it worked befor...

Re: H.265 file sizes for TV shows wildy different

Also, the input file size doesn’t matter much as far Compression in handbrake. The end result will probably be very similar if you fed it a lossless, uncompressed Master. Especially blue ray file with their insane video bitrate. Since handbrake is a quality based encoder, if you feed it a highly com...

Re: H.265 file sizes for TV shows wildy different

Handbrake uses a quality Based Veritable bit rate. It will use the least amount of data as possible depending on the quality setting. The amount of compression is based off how much data can be copied from frame to frame. So shows that are static with a lot of still parts, or dark scenes, without a ...

It’s universally rejected because it has no real world use outside your use. The math doesn’t add up and Combing is bad in a progressive system. But I love teaching and questioning.

No, I really meant field. A combed/interlaced image has 2 fields making one frame. Each field a different moment in time. You are left with interlaced/combed frames problem in a progressive system. That is bad. You have to do something with them. If want to add artificial frames or combing into the ...

I understand the combed frames. But what to do with them in a progressive system. I can A. Leave as is and have combing artifacts few times a second. B. Blur them. There's one form of an interpreted frame. C. Create a new frame based of the average motion of the frame in front and back, a "smart" in...

Re: Judder-free, 60 FPS telecine (?)

You have the essential idea but I don't know why you write "not a true representation". How not? Because there is no mathematical way to represent 24 frames into 60 evenly without juter through 6:4 pulldown. You need to add and create frames not in the source material as an in between . And the onl...

Re: Judder-free, 60 FPS telecine (?)

From what i'm reading as I look what the OP wants to do is basically create a fake frame that's a combination of 2 frames for 1/60th every 2 frames/10. Basically create your own interpolated frame by using combing and blend interlacing. Ingenious, but is not a true representation of the original fil...

Re: Judder-free, 60 FPS telecine (?)

Forgive my ignorance, but I don't get the math of a 5555 pulldown on a 60FPS video. In a 60FPS video holding a 24FPS movie, 3:2 pull down is the only math that makes sense. You need to hold 4 frames of film for every 10 frames of video. The only way is 3+2+3+2=10 and keeping looking as smooth as pos...

Re: 16:9 DVDs all being converted as 4:3

Nope, it's 3:2. That made me laugh. DVDs and their non square pixels. But to the original poster. Handbrake encodes at the original resolution of the source and then adds a tag to tell players to either stretch the video out to 4:3 or 16:9. Hand brake keeps the full resolution of the video. It just...

Re: Preserving Dr Who Decomb BOB when combining handbrake rips and other files!

When using bob, you are making a progressive 60fps (50fps PAL) video out of the interlaced material. It is no longer interlaced and still gives the similar look of old tv smoothness.

Re: Small files off DVD are huge and the large files are small ?

Handbrakes default settings are designed to adjust bit rate based off image complexity to get the best compression and image quality. So a video with nothing moving much will get less data given to it, as it doesn't need much data to compress the little amount of changes per frame. Videos with a lot...
