Re: Extreme Variation in File Size

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried that filter, and it has to be cranked up to maximum to make a noticeable change, by which point the image quality is diminishing. I'll just live with the film grain. At least it's real, not the special effect they add to some video games. :)

Re: Extreme Variation in File Size

Thanks for the responses. I didn't post an activity log because I was asking a general question rather than a tech support one. I've looked at it, and it doesn't say anything about grain, possibly because I didn't use either denoise filter. I've seen examples, and while it does remove film grain, it...

Extreme Variation in File Size

Greetings, I was hoping someone might help me understand why my Handbrake-finished files show such a wide range of file sizes after being transcoded with the same settings. I'm using RF 18 and the "veryslow" transcoding speed. Most Blu-Ray movies start at around 28 GB, and end up at 8 or 9 GB. But s...

Re: Variable Framerate?

Great, thanks. :) I figured the "same as source" option would keep me safe. Glad I wasn't wrong.

Variable Framerate?

I was just reading a site that had some suggestions for Handbrake settings, and it said never to use variable framerate. The problem I have is that I have done an absolute ton of transcoding with variable framerate selected (I think it was the default setting). I made sure to check the "same as sour...

Re: How many audio tracks?

Thanks, I think I get it now. My TV is fairly new, I just don't have a separate sound bar, so I guess it can handle things well enough. Same with the Roku.

Thanks again! I was not looking forward to re-ripping everything to add stereo tracks back in. :)

Re: How many audio tracks?

So if I'm reading this correctly, the 7.1 audio track will be handled correctly for plain old stereo speakers if that's all I have? Why then is there a separate stereo track? (I'm not doubting you, I'm just curious about the reason for all the other audio tracks.)

Thanks for answering! :)

How many audio tracks?

I've been transcoding some of my movies with Handbrake, and suddenly realized I've only been keeping one audio track. The default is usually Dolby 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound, but I don't have any surround speakers, just the plain old standard ones that came attached to my TV. Do I need to go back to ...
