Re: h265 encoder questions - am I doing it right?

Thanks s55! This is good info to know! I agree with statements I've read that encourage people not to compare two stills side by side trying to fault find. Right now my measure of quality is the opening scene of "before I fall" at about the 52 second mark Zoey Deutch is darkly lit in front of a dark...

Re: Overwhlemed and need advice on settings to reduce size of Blu-Ray while preserving quality

NVENC 265 all the way down to CQ0 hasn't eliminated the banding. :-(

trying software 10 bit h265 with a CQ of 2 to see if that might be a possiblity.

Next after that will be to try ditching CQ and going for a larger fixed bit rate.

Re: Overwhlemed and need advice on settings to reduce size of Blu-Ray while preserving quality

Thanks Woodstock!

So far NVENC QC 6 hasn't cut it, I'm trying some of the CPU only ones now, and then figure I'll try an NVENC QC 1+2 to see if it makes a difference.

Re: Optimal Encode Settings Blu Ray -> Plex

Same here! (I don't use plex, and I understand subtitles, but the encoder options are overwhelming) I''m still experimenting - what I can say so far is that using h265 nvenc on CQ6, I still see banding, so that's still not good enough I'm doing some more sample encodes tonight, and trying the softwa...

h265 encoder questions - am I doing it right?

Description of problem or question: Is Constant Quality relative to the encoder being used? ie would CQ of 21 on NVEnc h265 produce the same output quality as CQ 21 using software h.265? The reason I ask is I am getting vastly different file sizes. I've read that NVEnc is faster, but produces large...
