Keep Anamorphic while Resizing

Re: Subtitles Not Displayed After Conversion

Thanks guys. I'll check the cropping--I hadn't thought of that. As for selecting the subtitle tracks, there were actually none to select. Which is what baffles me. That would indicate to me that the source already had them burned in. The only option on the Subtitle tab is Foreign Audio scan. But it ...

Subtitles Not Displayed After Conversion

At least I think they are, because when I import it into Handbrake and go to the Subtitle tab, I can't select any subtitle track (only Foreign Audio Scan). Additionally, when I play the file in VLC, th...

Encoding Tweak Suggestions for Dark Scenes

I'm encoding a movie in which about 50% of it takes place in very dark places. There is a lot of black. Do you have any suggestions for settings I could adjust that would produce better blacks? I tried with the video settings below, but the blacks were still very pixelated/blocky. Video codec: H.264...

Setting for smooth panning

I'm a long time user of Handbrake and think is does a great job compared to other encoders I've tried. However, one thing I've noticed is that often when a movie contains scenes where the camera shows pans from one side of the screen to the other, Handbrake produces files that show this panning as a...
