Re: no_fast_pskip=0: is not possible

Thanks for straightening me out.
You are right, I thought they were the same thing. I realize now that "Handbrake deletes the setting" because fast-pskip is the default, and fast-firstpass is not for me.

no_fast_pskip=0: is not possible

When I try to add no_fast_pskip=0: to advanced options Handbrake deletes the setting. So I always get a slow first pass when I use the option pass=1: I know fast first pass can be set by doing 2-pass-encoding and setting turbo first pass from video tab, however that is not always appropriate. I am w...

Keyframe Info For Encode Range

I would find it very useful if the Linux-Handbrake-Gui could display:-

whether or not the start-frame and end-frame of the encode range are keyframes.

Re: Pass=1?

x264 supports unlimited passes. pass=3 does not mean the third pass, it's more like a flag. 1==write, 2==read, 1+2 == write+read Pass 1: --pass=1: write original stats file Pass 2: --pass=3: read stats file and write stats file Pass 3: --pass=3: read stats file and write stats file ... Pass N-1: --...

Re: Change Bitrate For Second Pass

That's a very old build of HandBrake you're using. Try updating to 0.9.5 or a nightly (see the forum announcement). Whoops, I did upgrade a while back. Turns out I have two versions of CLI and GUI in /usr/local/bin and /usr/bin Thanks for pointing that out to me, I didn't know. I'll encode the seco...

Re: Change Bitrate For Second Pass

RandomRuin I appreciate your feedback. I was a bit down when my second attempt failed, and didn't want to start again. You got me over it. I did ask a dumb question. You chided me. Fair enough. As for the activity log. "Activity log is required for support requests" I read support to be short for Ha...

Re: Change Bitrate For Second Pass

thanks randomruin, you have convinced me to bite the bullet. I have started over again. I no longer need any help with this post. To answer you last questions. I am not going to do any testing on this issue, my computer is way too slow, can't even play the source file. There is nothing borked about ...

Re: Change Bitrate For Second Pass

Seriously gersey. I'm going to keep this link as an example of a stupid question. From now on when people say "There are no stupid questions", I'm going to point to this question. Thank you. Sorry about that. Let's think about this one together. You're asking a computer to do a less difficult task....

Change Bitrate For Second Pass

I have encoded a full first pass (@1.2 fps). Turns out I made a mistake and the resulting file size is 1 mb larger than I want. I would like to encode the second pass @ 1kbps less for the second pass.

Will reducing the bitrate by this small amount:
1> Reduce video quality?
2>Slow down the encode?

Give special treatment to certain scenes

I encoded a video using two pass and a low bitrate. The quality is acceptable to me, except for one scene which takes place in a steam-filled bathroom. That scene is very blocky. The source is 1080p and I am re-encoding to 720p. Is there some way I could ask handbrake to allocate more resources to t...

Re: Profile for DivX Plus HD?

Maybe the time would be right to provide a named profile DivX+ HD besides the Normal and High Profile with every release of HandBrake. Mate, how can there be an official Divx_Plus_HD Profile? Divx_plus_HD is a proprietary, closed, secretive competitor to x264. People discovered that AppleTV setting...

Re: Profile for DivX Plus HD?

you may want to add b-pyramid=none to that advanced options string;
I'm fairly sure divx_hd handles b-pyramid fine.
