Re: Automate re-encoding numerous videos in a folder

I'm working on a restoration section for the documentation, but it's going to be awhile. In the meantime, check the CLI --help: https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.1.0/cli/cli-guide.html Probably want something like --nlmeans=light --nlmeans-tune=film (or tune high motion / animation / whatever your sour...

Re: Automate re-encoding numerous videos in a folder

Quality-based encoding causes the bit rate to vary, sometimes dramatically increasing in the case of complex, high motion, and/or noisy/grainy video. Most likely your larger encodes could benefit from some noise reduction. You can also specify a target bit rate and 2-pass encoding if you want to ach...

Re: Need preset suggestion DVD to .mp4

I'm a bit late to the party, but wanted to mention a few things. Nearly all of HandBrake's official presets enable comb detection and decombing, for use with interlaced/mixed/progressive sources, regardless of resolution. It just works 99%+ of the time. The Production presets are the notable excepti...

Re: Automate re-encoding numerous videos in a folder

You'll probably want to bash script this since HandBrake won't automatically detect an SRT sidecar. Something like: for FILE in *.mkv; do SRT="" if [[ -e "${FILE%mkv}srt" ]]; then SRT="--srt-file=${FILE%mkv}srt --srt-codeset=utf-8 --srt-lang=eng" fi HandBrakeCLI -i "${FILE}" --preset-import-gui --pr...

> Change the x264 preset from medium to very fast. This. You can also use one of the Very Fast presets which are similar. Presets were overhauled in 1.0.0 which included a modest speed hit to the default. As source *resolution* has increased it seemed foolish to limit motion quality and produce larg...

Re: Inter- or intra-frame compression? (preset "Production Standard")

See the section on Production presets in the documentation: https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.1.0/technical/official-presets.html Only the proxy presets are Intra-only; Standard and Max are I/P with only one reference frame per GOP. This is nearly as fast to decode, giving you an I-frame every 1/2 seco...

John is working on a pipeline overhaul to support higher bit depth internally. Encoder support is just one step toward a full solution, and happened to be the easiest to accomplish at the time.

Re: Only first part of DVD gets encoded

MakeMKV in its default configuration does not transcode, it simply remuxes the audio/video/other tracks into an MKV file without changing them. Its strengths are working around damaged and poorly mastered discs as well as supporting commercial discs. HandBrake, on the other hand, is a transcoder. An...

Try --stop-at="pts:274500000" which is the base clock 90,000 Hz times the frame rate.

Re: How to shrink the file size but not loose the quality?

The documentation has some pointers on quality: https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.1.0/work ... ality.html

As others note, any of the general 1080p presets should compress BD sources more than the originals, even while retaining visual quality.

Re: convert Mini Dv to MP4

You can probably import the Mini-DV using iMovie, assuming it still supports this feature (it used to). Then you can export to MP4 directly or export to something like Apple ProRes or Intermediate Codec, and feed that to HandBrake.
