Re: HandBrake 1.1.0 Discussion Thread

The HBQ format was removed. So far, the only users that were using that have noticed it go, where using it in ways it was never intended for and not something we want to support. The HBQ format was a very convenient way to alter the settings of a batch encode. If it was not intended for saving/rest...

Queue import / export

Hi all,

With the current handbrake release, it is no more possible to import a queue.
It was an easy way to "mass modify" some settings with a text editor, for example the quality factor or whatever.
Please allow handbrake GUI to import the json export.
Thanks.

Re: Simple recommendations to pc, please

Use x265 codec as it compresses much better than any other.
Use a one-pass quality target (instead of a 2-pass bitrate target), with RF 20-22, depending on your file size goal.
Compress audio with AAC.

You should get what you want :)

Re: Codec VP9 and MP4 container

Compared to the mkv container, mp4 is really lame. It doesn't support PGS subtitles, for instance.

Re: Encode size differs based on CPU used

Is it related to the way x264 uses parallelism ?

Is it the same with x265 codec ?

Re: HEVC quality vs speed slider, much trial and error!

I've done a few tests, and it seems the grain tuning increases the file size quite a lot. However, it clearly enhance greatly all details.

Re: HEVC quality vs speed slider, much trial and error!

To my eyes, the 8mb CRF21 Preset Faster Tune Grain sample looks as good as the 15mb CRF15 Preset Slow sample, and it definitely looks better than all the rest. Hello, this is quite surprising. I usually use HEVC with RF20 at the 'very slow' preset to encode 1080p movies, with a ~1-2 fps throughput....

Handrake GUI issue

Please describe the problem in as much detail as possible: As soon as I start handbrake windows GUI, when this window has the focus, the mouse is jerky, it blinks, as if there was a huge CPU usage.

Re: Problem building handbrake due to libx265

Using handbrake on a raspberry pi looks like trying to cut a sequoia with a knife... No ?

Anyway, the error messages looks like missing CPU features. I'd try without x265 if I were you.

Hi,

I've noticed that the x265 preset is not saved with user presets (slow, very fast ...). H.265 Profile seems to be saved, though.

Are 3D movies supported by handbrake ? If no, are there any plan to support 3D encoding ?

Anyway, I get files with a quite similar quality and very different sizes. This comparison may not be scientific, but I'm not sure it's absolutely meaningless.
