Re: Handbrake needs "produce interlaced file" tickbox

If you don't deinterlace it will output both fields in one frame. You've got some post-processing going on somewhere, maybe in your display.

Re: Share my setting, VERY FAST

...

There are two parts to filters like detelecine and decomb. An analysis phase and a rendering phase. The analysis phase decides whether or not to engage the rendering phase. There is no way to avoid the analysis phase.

Re: Handbrake needs "produce interlaced file" tickbox

Unless you're using my bobbing patch, HandBrake, when deinterlacing, outputs one frame per two fields (one frame) of input, based primarily on the first field.

Re: Handbrake needs "produce interlaced file" tickbox

Unless you are one of the remaining few with a CRT monitor, it in absolutely *no* way makes sense to keep content interlaced. You are going to have to deinterlace it on playback. Realtime deinterlacers are of course going to provide worse results than preprocessing deinterlacers, since they have the...

Re: AviSynth support

Realize this is for more fundamental of a reason than just that AviSynth's not cross-platform (which is, don't get me wrong, a huge issue). AviSynth is a frameserver. It is designed to work with video transcoders that are blind to the source video. All they do is get fed individual frames and encode...

Re: Bulk transcode using CLI not naming files correctly

Code: Select all

Umm....if you aren't modifying the source code I have no idea what you think that's going to do. Your script saves the encode logs, haven't you looked at them?

And to answer your question.... Read up on the sed command.

Re: Adding the x264 --preset's as HB Built-In Presets

Denied. As I've said in the past, if we implement this, it's going to be as another panel that interacts modally with the advanced panel. As in, there will be a basic x264 tab and an advanced x264 tab and never will the two be on screen at the same time. The basic one will just offer the x264 preset...

Re: No-DCT Decimate Advice on Advanced Settings Panel

Let me put it like this:

The lead developer of x264 has set his encoder to have CRF on by default and no-dct-decimate off by default. His own CLI only suggests using no-dct-decimate if content is very grainy.

I'll do it myself. It's not worth pursuing at this moment because it will break my bobbing patch for sure. It's going to be hard enough to merge in to decomb 3.

Re: No fast P-Skip in Handbrake Ubuntu

There is no reason you should be playing with this option given the modern-day capabilities of x264. It's been obsolete since AQ was committed like two years ago. There is a reason the only x264 preset that employs it is called "Placebo."

Just use high profile h.264 with a max width of 960 for on-screen playback or 1280 if you plan on using it on a computer too.

Thanks. Not really a big deal, though.
