Re: deblocking questions?

The x264 in-loop deblocker is part of the decoder. Basically, changing the deblock=A,B setting gives a hint to the decoder how to process the encoded material on playback. The idea is that the encoding settings should influence the decoding settings. For high quality film encodes, values like -1,-1 ...

Re: Questions regarding audio settings from a Mac user

The Apple 1080p30 Surround preset is a good starting point for you and your devices. H.264, AAC+AC3, in MP4. 1. Core Audio AAC the best AAC encoder. 2. In either case, HandBrake decodes the DTS core only. Makes no difference when encoding (not passing through, e.g. DTS-HD MA in MKV). 3. Stereo. DPL2...

Re: Stopping Auto Cropping

Setting cropping to custom, and then all values to 0 (zero), disables autocrop. Then you can save a new preset for future use as Ritsuka suggests.

Re: washed out colour after UHD to 1080p conversions

Not everyone appreciates suggestions lacking implementation ability. Don't sweat it. Suffice to say, it's on the development team's list. ;) To clarify about partial implementation: HDR signaling is sort of alongside the video information. HandBrake understands the video information, but does not ye...

Re: Help with AAC Bitrate

The reason I did not suggest passing through the original audio is the source being LPCM, which HandBrake cannot pass through. It is falling back to the AC3 encoder which is not ideal in this case. Since you're using VLC you should be able to encode lossless FLAC audio using the MKV container. Alter...

Re: Support for new macOS Mojave dark mode

If you want to try it now, you can install a nightly build: https://handbrake.fr/nightly.php

This will soon become HandBrake 1.2.0.

Re: Help with AAC Bitrate

256 kbps is what Apple uses for music without video. Some iDevices only support 160 kbps when the audio is part of a video file. If your playback software/device supports it, go all the way to 320 kbps AAC. Alternatively, if you can use the MKV container, you can use FLAC which is lossless.

NLMeans tune Grain does not denoise luma at all.

Try Film or High Motion on Ultralight/Light strength and see if that works.

The file does not open in QuickTime Player on macOS 10.13.6. I'm not seeing anything of substance indicating it's an MP4 container aside from the file extension.

Re: 10 bit vs 12 bit video opinions

10-bit being smaller than 8-bit can be measured and quantified: http://x264.nl/x264/10bit_02-ateme-why_ ... dwidth.pdf (PDF).

TL;DR: More accurate compression leads to fewer truncation errors, saving space.

Seems the same to me at a glance. Is it possible your display or playback device has motion smoothing turned on?

Re: Issues while preserving picture quality with DVD set of Real Adventures of Jonny Quest

Give Decomb EEDI2 a shot. It's slow but more effective for troublesome sources.
