Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

Flo, I am, and can only represent myself as a regular consumer. ..has been around for over a year. There has been plenty of time for "trial and error". Even "the scene" has moved on. Not everyone is part of 'the scene' and has time, in under a year, to experiment and learn the "feel" so as they coul...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

Ps: I hope the admins re-read this whole post and recognize my struggle to help while being put down. And if there were any Handbrake representatives involved, they talk to those people because it shined a horrible and unprofessional image on their product. I was honestly trying to help as a consume...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

Of course you could try Vidcoder, which is Handbrake with a different user interface. Well, mostly. However, Vidcoder also seems to have a problem with target size. The other thing to understand, is that when the Handbrake developers decide on something, that's it. It's not open to discussion. Avi ...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

The irony is that, in the time you spent arguing for your beloved target size option, you could have encoded several DVDs at constant quality and seen the results for yourself. Hahah agreed. Im not doing this for me tho, I'm doing it for the rest of the Handbrake community that don't want to do tri...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

hahah once again I understand I can use that. Id just rather not "get the feel" and spend hours doing that when I could get a guestimate and loose a little. Most people agree with me. Didn't come here to complain about my laziness and spend my time doing that, just trying to inform the developers. ...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

What I've been saying from the beginning is that i am/need to be SIZE oriented because of limited resources. In which case you should use cq encoding as it will save you space in the long run. hahah once again I understand I can use that. I know my messages contradict. Id just rather not "get the f...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

When I check 'constant quality' and then drag the bar for quality, as far as I know, I have no way of knowing what the size/quality of that video will be without getting "a feel for it". So that leaves me with doing several conversions just to get to see what size that file is. I know it can be con...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

Tamuuli, you seem to use Target File Size a way a lot of other people do: as a way to ensure your files don't exceed a certain size. But what you and everyone else don't seem to grasp is that while you will never end up with a movie that's goes over the target size, you'll never end up with one tha...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

). Its not about laziness, just convenience for those in a hurry/don't want to calculate things for every conversion. But it seems rather than just try using the new settings and see if they work you are going to downgrade to an obsolete version. Sounds pretty lazy to me. Maybe I am just being conf...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

I think I'm still missing something. Are you saying that forcing a size most likely wastes space Correct. By letting the encoder chose the bitrate you will probably save space and get better quality (the encoder is smarter than you and I). Ahh.. Yea that makes sense. I always kind of figured that, ...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

How did he just teach me to save space? By telling you to use constant quality encoding rather than forcing your encodes to 2gb in size. I think I'm still missing something. Are you saying that forcing a size most likely wastes space (because of something with conversion) or that forcing every file...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

Taking a sample of 110 videos in my collection, at an average length of 1hr 40 minutes (All SD content): Total: 163.75GB (Max: 2.9GB, Min 0.9GB) Average: 1.48GB So, if you'd used 2GB per encode, you'd have wasted 57GB Listen to yourself: size is all that matters for me for storing a video on an hdd...

Re: What happened to the "Target Size" quality option?

..seriously can somebody please just re enable this option?? I understand that its not completely spot on but this is something I used every single time to estimate the video size (size is all that matters for me for storing a video on an hdd, not quality). And I don't wanna have to use any secondar...
