Re: Anyone feeling the Holiday Spirit??

since you can't just import dvd footage to a NLE, you can use handbrake to convert to a format that can be edited, but you want to use a pretty high quality setting to retain as much quality as you can for editing. Try the 480P Hq setting and push the quality setting to 16 or lower. Itll probably gi...

Re: Removing artifacts/stuttering from mixed progressive/telecined source

Have you tried detelecine? If the source is a film, it may just work without a deinterlace meathod and avoid some deinterlacing artifacts.

Re: Help!

I’m assuming (without logs, that’s all can do) that you are trying to rip directly off a dvd. DVDs have copy protection and handbrake can not get rid of said copy protection. You need to get rid of the copy protection and then encode that file.

Re: New to compression

What you are seeing is quite normal. Blueray/UHD uses an insane bit rate that isn't that efficient. And that not a bad thing cause the quality is kept very good. They have the storage on the disc, so studios pretty much use the best quality with minimal compression. Handbrake has a different method....

Re: Need to fix audio/video sync issues from iPhone to iMovie.

also make sure that your imovie project is set to the right frame rate. It will set the project to whatever the first video file is put in the time line, so if you put in a 24FPS clip first, that becomes the frame rate of the whole project and could be a reason on why your getting dropped frames if ...

Re: Does not recognise source frame rate

Hand brakes defualt is UP TO 30 FPS. If your source is 24, the output will be 24. Some videos can several have frame rates and the up to 30 will account for those. I only change it to 60 if my source needs it.

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...

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 ...

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 . A...

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...

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...

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.
