Re: Video/Quality settings

Why are you using average bitrate rather than constant quality encoding? Constant quality encoding will be faster since it doesn't require an extra pass and will result in more consistent quality from one encode to the next. Different source material can require vastly different bitrates to get equ...

Re: Why no bitrate when using mkv format

I think mduell and rodeo were questioning woodstock, not you. Regarding your file bitrate, if you keep your HB encoded files in their own folder you won't need to worry about the bitrate as it will be whatever you set it to. Oh Jesus having re read things i think your right, plenty of humble pie fo...
