Re: Odd scaling result from 'very fast 720p30'

That makes sense, but I did nothing to configure that option, so it must be a default. I don't edit video files or use Handbrake very often, so the logic in setting that as a default was not at all obvious or intuitive to me. In fact, creating a new preset with 'use source res' also seems to set cro...

Re: Odd scaling result from 'very fast 720p30'

Log file is below. The source file was 1280x720, but rendering with "very fast 720p30" present resulted in an output file with dims: 1266x716. One of the other files in the same set was rendered correctly from 1280x720 to 1280x720. I see no difference between the two source files. I origin...

Odd scaling result from 'very fast 720p30'

Description of problem or question: I've been trying out the 'very fast 720p30' preset on Handbrake (1.3.3) for scaling down some tutorial videos. Even if original files are in 1280 x 720 format, re-rendering often reduces file sizes substantially. For the most part, everything seems to be working ...

Re: Handbrake losing settings in batch mode

At best, all of this is counter-intuitive.Perhaps the UI could be changed to reflect what HB is actually going to do. If this is normal behavior for HB to apply designated parameters to only the first file in a batch, there should be a warning. No need for ridiculous warnings. Apparently this is th...

Re: Handbrake losing settings in batch mode

...I had set cropping to custom, and designated 0 for all four params. Same deal there. It was reset after the first file, in the middle of the batch process. Just wondering if all your sources have the same original size? i.e. are all sources 1920x1080 or do some of them vary? Handbrake autocrop i...

Re: Handbrake losing settings in batch mode

Was your cropping set to auto crop? You should post a log so people can see what is going on. No, I had set cropping to custom, and designated 0 for all four params. Same deal there. It was reset after the first file, in the middle of the batch process. Re the log: I just took a look, and I'm mysti...

Re: Handbrake losing settings in batch mode

The settings for a particular encode only apply to that encode. On scanning a new source, including the next video in your folder, everything reverts to the preset. This is the only way it can possibly make sense, since not all sources are the same (audio tracks, subtitle tracks, etc etc) Autocrop ...

Re: Handbrake losing settings in batch mode

Thanks, rollin_eng. That seems to have worked, but I have to wonder why Handbrake would be so obscure. I did indeed need to create a new profile, then set it as default. Otherwise, Handbrake seems to ignore the main screens' settings (???!) If the controls for setting resolution are right there on t...
