Re: How do I do a Variable Bitrate Encode with a Maximum Bitrate?

If you want a certain quality then use CRF encoding and don’t worry about size. If you want a certain size use 2 pass ABR and don’t worry about quality. Trying to do some kind of hybrid will probably not work as you expect i.e. if you cap your bitrate then the encoder may not be able to achieve the...

Re: How do I do a Variable Bitrate Encode with a Maximum Bitrate?

As usual, choose a reasonable RF for your content, resolution, and personal preferences. I don't know why you want to target a particular average bitrate, but it's probably a bad idea. Try RF values until you get the quality you want across a range of videos. Some videos will be higher bitrate, som...

Re: How do I do a Variable Bitrate Encode with a Maximum Bitrate?

The vbv options will let you do this. Use a quality (RF) target, and set the max bitrate over whatever your averaging/buffering period is with vbv. Hi mduell :) Oh, okay :) Does it matter what RF target I use? Edit 1 : I thought I understood what you were saying in my initial response above, but I ...

How do I do a Variable Bitrate Encode with a Maximum Bitrate?

Description of problem or question Hello HandBrake users :) I'm trying to figure out how to do a variable bitrate encode that has a maximum bitrate I don't want to go over. I want HandBrake to analyze the scene and use anywhere from 0 kbps up to a maximum of 3000 kbps depending on what the scene ca...
