Re: Recommend Settings for 4K MP4 Test Video?

mduell,

"Pick the built in 4K preset suitable for your playback environment." Checked all the presets did Not find a 4K preset for Android.

Want to choose a 4K preset that will work with all (or most) 4K TVs.

Appreciate your suggestion!

Thanks

mduell,

Thanks for the tip!

Read the docs for 4K "Recommended settings for x264 and x265 encoders: RF 22-28 for 2160p 4K Ultra High Definition" https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.2.0/work ... ality.html

Question: What RF setting do you use for 4K?

JohnAStebbins,

Thanks for the comments and link!

"If you run your own tests (as MiniSiets has done), you can see the difference in both quality and file size of 10 bit vs. 8 bit encoded content even when starting with an 8 bit source."

Have you posted any tests of 10 bit vs 8 bit?

Re: 10 bit vs 12 bit video opinions

Carlo Macchiavello,

Was very interested in your comments "...do you have a real 10 bit player..."

Do you know a website that covers which 4K products have real 10 bit hardware?

Did find "4k HDR – 8 bit, 10 bit, 12 bit,..." https://dgit.com/4k-hdr-guide-45905/ but does not mention any websites.

rollin_eng,

" But why?" to my Was especially impressed by Dust and Scratches filter!

If many people have good results then should be worth while for most cases.
