Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

Thank you for explaining, it makes sense now to me. I will use production max where as RF18 will be set, hopefully I will not see the difference (from 2.7k) in the final result (1080p). I am very glad that I found handbrake and it served me in a different purpose, as I understand it is not common pr...

Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

Thank you guys, I guess I will go with RF18, because I noticed for some files it produces sometimes bigger, sometimes lower file sizes which works for me. As for the lossless - I am new to this field, and by lossless I meant "as it is now" - I was not aware that the file can grow 10x bigger when usi...

Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

Also I think I made a mistake in the initial post I think it was RF18, not RF20 that put a file up to 150%. another one, from 95.6mb I got 42.4mb with RF22: https://pastebin.com/T6DDLdK7 and with RF 21 I got 49.6mb. RF20 - 58.8mb RF18 - 77.7mb Now if I am just to play with RF I might found the "opti...

Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

If you are that far above file size, your settings are way above optimal . It sounds like there is not so much motion detail in your film. You are welcome to waste all the space you want, it won't do a bit of good. "Optimal" means enough, but not too much. Make sense? exactly. If I am getting 150% ...

Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

I think it is important to know that throwing more well-intentioned bits at an encode that is already optimal makes it, well, ... bigger. "Optimal" quality is casually thought of as being around 0.995 SSIM, often occurring around CRF 18-20 (no lower) at least in x264. Integrity is so good these day...

Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

Understood. Then if I am going to accept some loss what would be the optimal settings for output? If I use these settings 2704x1520, fps same as source (59.94), quality RF 22, encoder options preset: slow, variable framerate I get a file around 20mbs, so I can increase the quality to grow the file s...

Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

Unfortunately, you can't have both. You can adjust the quality lower on the production presets, if you desire. not sure what is "both" in this scenario. Can I just have the original? Conversion in handbrake returns me an error free file with which I am more than happy to work. Just trying to achiev...

Re: Best lossless settings for mp4 transformation

If you're doing this to correct things for Premier, have you looked at the "production" presets? Hello, I've tried production presets on the file I uploaded on wetransfer (89.9mb). Production max returned 762.9mb and standard returned 328.6mb. I feel like I over-processing in this scenario as GoPro...
