Re: Splitting files for faster/higher encodes?

Depending on the audio format, video and audio frame boundaries may not align exactly, so you'll want to be extra careful when splitting/joining files to avoid compounding A/V sync offsets. Generally speaking, it's just easier for most end users to encode multiple different movies/episodes at once,...

Re: Ai upscaling - 1080p to 8k to 1080p

I understand the idea of "enhanced" upscaling for playback on a high-resolution display, but upscaling then downscaling sounds a lot like just applying a sharpening filter. I wonder whether the results would be any better than using a dedicated sharpening filter; I suspect not consistently so, but ...

Re: Ai upscaling - 1080p to 8k to 1080p

Despite what you see in crime dramas, you really cannot get better quality by upscaling. You can make educated guesses as to what a single pixel converted to 16 might look like, but it is just a guess. It is influenced not by what was really recorded, but what the algorithms used can create that "m...

Nevermind. Davinci resolve knew exactly what i was upto, no need to lay each image out 1 by 1 thank god. I rendered as a .mov uncompressed rgb 8bit and then encoded it in handbrake.

Do you mean davinci resolve? Placing thousands of images onto the timeline is going to be a very very long (and boring) time.

Re: Ai upscaling - 1080p to 8k to 1080p

Upscaling wont improve quality. From what ive seen topaz video enhancer ai works pretty well, it takes a while, sometimes a few seconds for each frame, but they do look very good. Its not the kind of upscaling your tv does, where its just mapping a lower res image to more pixels. I dunno what it do...

Re: Ai upscaling - 1080p to 8k to 1080p

Why would you want to upscale 1080 to 8k, then convert to 1080? Upscale to 8k to improve quality, downsample to 1080p to save space. Downsampled content looks better than native content. So like 4k video, downsampled to 1080p will look better than if it was shot natively at 1080p. Obviously its not...

Ai upscaling - 1080p to 8k to 1080p

Anyone experimented with ai upscaling? Using topaz video enhancer or some other similar technology to convert a 1080p bluray up to 8k, to be reencoded back to 1080p? This kind of upscaling seems quite promising from i have seen. Mabe even keeping a higher res like 4k?

Why would it matter where i split it? Mkvtoolnix has no choice but to split on an I frame, so there should be no issues there, and csnt u just cut into say, 5 roughly even clips?

Re: Splitting files for faster/higher encodes?

You are going to give yourself more issues if you start chopping up your videos then try to put them back together. Just trust the encoders to do what’s best. Its far too slow to do it that way for 4k, with 1080p i have just been waiting it out. But 4k it encodes at around about or even less than 1...

Convert png to video

Is there a way to convert a series of png images to a video with handbrake? I have used ai upscaling i. A video which has comverted each individual frame to a png and i want to combine them to be encoded in handbrake to h.264.

Splitting files for faster/higher encodes?

My understanding is that x264 can fully utilize up to 8 cores/16 threads, and x265 is maxed out at lower core/thread counts. I also know that higher thread counts reduces quality at a given bitrate, though its negligible until you get lower than about 40 vertical pixels per thread. If i have for exa...

Re: High core counts and video quality

I mainly use x264,
Which I believe is optimal around 6-8 logical processors.

Would turning off hyperthreading be beneficial then? If its 6-8 threads, each running on there own core, that would he better than each running off half a core right?

Re: High core counts and video quality

The encoders pretty much spread their load as needed, and not use more cores than are "best". An x265 encode of a source greater than 1080p, will typically not exceed 12 cores. x264 generally tops out around 8-10 cores. If you can afford more cores, then that means you can run multiple encodes at t...

Im planning on upgrading my cpu when zen 3 ryzen 4000 is released soon. I am considering either the 12 core zen 3 part or the 3900x, depending on how much the zen 2 price drops, and what the difference in performance is like. May even consider the 3950x if the price drops significantly. I heard that...

Slowest x264/5 encoder speed worth using

My goals are to get a transparent encode, at around 35-40% the size on average. I have a 55inch tv, sit about 8-10feet away, and have a pair of sharp eyes. My settings so far have done me well with this, but i wanna know if its a bit overkill. I use x264 high profile, level 4.1, film tune, and the v...

Re: NLmeans effect on detail

So what is a good setting to use?

Is there anything i can put into the custom settings to get a similar effect? I have no idea...

Re: NLmeans effect on detail

"Safe" is a relative term... It's not going to make your encodes blow up, so, in that way, it's "safe". But it will slow your encodes down, because it is not the fastest denoise filter. Safe as in these setting wont comprimise sources that dont need it. I dont want it reducing a noticable amount of...

NLmeans effect on detail

I know the stronger the denoising settings, the more detail is filtered out, but if something doesnt compress as well as i want, i would rather denoise than reduce RF/bitrate.

Its PAL which is 25fps, so i thought it may still have a telecine pulldown. 25:1 i think, but i believe its native 25 fps.

In terms of speed, encoding quality, space savings, whats better? Using makemkv to rip an mkv from the bluray, and then compressing with handbrake, or compressing straight from the bluray with handbrake?

Re: Can i leave denoising on for every encode?

That's the sticky point, though - One person's "detail" is another program's "noise to be smoothed out". The smaller file size comes from reducing the detail to be compressed. Personally, I have the noise filters disabled, unless I have a specific reason to activate one of them. So it sounds like t...

Re: Can i leave denoising on for every encode?

You could set up a preset that uses NLmeans and make it your default. It will slow your encodes, of course, vs. not using a noise filter. Using a noise filter will help reduce the size of the file (usually!), but it goes against your "(practically) indistinguishable from the source" goal. When i sa...
