Re: HB 1.4.1, can no longer output 1920x1440 (4:3) video

[09:53:28] + source: 1920 * 1440, crop (180/180/0/0): 1920 * 1080, scale: 1920 * 1080 Turn off cropping. HandBrake auto-crops black bars by default. It looks like we have overlooked translation of previous custom preset settings that have auto-crop disabled. So if you have custom presets you create...

Sharpening happens after scaling in HandBrake's filter pipeline.

Re: Calculating output file size before commiting to encoding

filesize = duration * bitrate You can't nail down a specific file size with quality target encoding (i.e. RF values). That would require multiple rounds of trial and error and would have different results for each input file. I recommend 2-pass bitrate target encoding for this. You'll have to sum up...

Re: Error compiling hb.dll for Windows with Fedora 30

Oh, I must apologize for a mistake I made earlier. Signal 9 is SIGKILL, and I misread as SIGILL (one letter difference 'K'). This last log indicates a different signal (15) which is SIGTERM. Something external to 'ld' is terminating or killing the process. One thought is the OOM killer. How much mem...

Re: HandBrake 1.4.0 Discussion Thread

Signal 9 is "illegal instruction". Either ld is bugged or you have some other system level issue. Fedora 30 is getting pretty long in the tooth. Perhaps it's time for an upgrade?

Re: HandBrake NTSC-PAL question

A couple other tips when encoding DVDs... Depending on the type of the source, you may want to use a deinterlace or detelecine filter in HandBrake. Some DVDs are interlaced and you need to deinterlace them to remove comb artefacts. Some NTSC DVDs use a technique called soft telecine to encode conten...

In gnome, you can set the system wide theme with the tool gnome-tweaks. If you wish to set the theme for a single application, you can do that from the command line with the environment variable GTK_THEME. E.g. GTK_THEME=Adwaita-dark ghb You can see a list of available themes either in the gnome-twe...

Strict anamorphic would preserve the original video pixel aspect ratio. HandBrake no longer has any equivalent. Auto anamorphic will pick the pixel aspect that preserves the best resolution given the current dimensions settings. If there are no resolution changes, it just happens that the original ...

Re: Av Bit Rate v Constant Quality

A number of things affect bitrate when using constant quality encoding including motion, video noise, and scene detail. The larger encodes likely had more of one of those. Given that the video is B&W, I'm guessing these are older TV shows. They probably have a significant amount of noise, so you...

The only differences in size will be metadata related. The actual media streams are copied bit-for-bit by MakeMKV.

Re: 1.3.3 doesn't access DVDs?

HandBrake is a transcoder. If you want the output smaller, different resolution, or with a different video or audio codec, you would use HandBrake. If you simply want a copy of the disc, MakeMKV does that better.

MakeMKV is a good tool to get to know if you plan to create a personal video library. It handles DVD, BD, and even UHD BD (if you have the right drive and firmware updates).

So to be clear, if I were to take three videos with equal codecs, the different video bit rates wouldn't necessarily tell me anything about the quality of the video?

Re: Forcing "Encoder Profile: High" via GUI or Advanced Options for H.265?

Also, FYI, explicitly setting high tier currently only sets the appropriate bit in the output file to indicate high tier. x265 does not currently use the information for any rate control processing.

You'll need another tool to fix the A/V sync. HandBrake preserves the A/V sync it sees.
