Re: The queue starts two convert jobs at the same time !

It appears you were using the nightly build, not 1.3.3. The nightly supports running multiple jobs in parallel. Feature, not a bug. ;)

Re: Subtitles not transferring

At first glance it seems your settings files may be corrupted. See the section on clearing your HandBrake configuration data here: https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.3.0/help ... stem-macos

Note you will need to recreate any custom presets you have saved previously.

Yes, 4x the luminance (gray) levels is advantageous for monochromatic material as color.

Re: FreeBSD Jail Install Illegal variable name

Oh, and Putty might have a setting to choose the shell on connect, in which case you could choose sh or bash if available.

Re: FreeBSD Jail Install Illegal variable name

Indeed, the documentation for FreeBSD is not written for C Shell (csh) but for Bourne Shell (sh). There's even a Bash-ism in the guide because I had some weird issue with the if statement IIRC (will try to fix with single brackets and patience eventually). For now, a quick fix would be to install Ba...

Re: FreeBSD Jail Install Illegal variable name

Putty is great. That said, the basic commands you are issuing are failing horribly for unknown reasons. I'm not sure what to suggest here, seems to be a shell and/or Putty settings issue.

Re: FreeBSD Jail Install Illegal variable name

What shell are you using? If FOO="bar" yields an error instead of setting the value of the variable FOO to bar, then there's a shell/system issue at play.

Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender Blu-Ray - Encode Al or Just Sound?

Animation is cleaner and less complex than live action, making it easier to compress, hence the smaller files. That said, any compression artifacts may be more readily apparent for the same reasons. In general, you can probably reduce RF by 2 to compensate. So if you were using 18, try 16 for animat...

Re: [Bash]Unable to convert multiple files within a folder.

Where you do: handName=$(basename "$line" .mpg) The $(...) is a subshell. Instead of running the enclosed command in the same shell instance as your script, it spawns another instance. I suspect something like the following would work (provided you supply absolute paths): result=$(/usr/bin/HandBrake...

Re: [Bash]Unable to convert multiple files within a folder.

I would think a subshell would be sufficient, plus you could process more than one job simultaneously with some additional modification.

Re: High core counts and video quality

If it's the only thing taxing the CPU and there are at least 8 physical cores, then no, it is not a detriment to an 8 thread workload whether the CPU is exposing 8 or 16 logical cores.

Re: High core counts and video quality

That's not really how hyperthreading works. 8c/16t isn't processes running on half cores compared to 8c/8t. Even so, x264 uses an appropriate number of threads. 1.4x logical cores IIRC.

Re: Help with tuning encoder for 480p anime

Sometimes, yes. We've tried to make presets forward compatible in that we have code to upgrade older presets, but can't guarantee it 100%. And cross-platform has some quirks.

Glad to hear you got it mostly solved. :)

Re: Help with tuning encoder for 480p anime

Not sure how you ended up with x265 options for the x264 encoder.

Try using the Decomb deinterlacing filter set to EEDI2. It's slower but slightly better quality for difficult sources.

If you have time, will you please check whether this is still an issue with the latest version of the build script? https://github.com/bradleysepos/mingw-w64-build

I maintain this separately from HandBrake and it is slightly older on the 1.3.x branch. Thanks.

Re: x265 8 vs. x265 10 Banding & Noise Comparison

The gist of it is x264 and x265 have perceptual optimizations that subjectively produce better quality for the human eye, but penalize psnr/ssim (because they are imperfect). Thus to do a fair psnr/ssim comparison, the associated tune(s) are recommended to avoid skewing the results for those particu...

Not exactly specifying the options correctly, either. option1=foo:option2=bar etc.

For a lecture you can probably use mono audio and half the audio bit rate.
