Equivalent of an encode batch file

Post by crashray »

Hi,
I try to encode with my mac. On my pc, I have a good encode batch file here :

Code: Select all

echo #
echo ########### avs ###########
echo #

date /t
time /t
start /b /wait /belownormal /min "#" "D:\Al\VirtualDubMod\VirtualDubMod.exe" /s"test.jobs" /x


echo #
echo ########## avc 1 ##########
echo #

date /t
time /t
start /b /wait /belownormal "#" "D:\Al\x264\x264.exe" --keyint 250 --min-keyint 25 --scenecut 30 --bframes 2 --b-bias 0 --b-pyramid --ref 8 --filter -1:0 --bitrate 600 --qpmin 10 --qpmax 51 --qpstep 4 --ratetol 1.0 --vbv-maxrate 0 --ipratio 1.2 --pbratio 1.3 --chroma-qp-offset 0 --pass 1 --stats "avc.stats" --qcomp 0.60 --analyse all --direct temporal --weightb --me "hex" --merange 16 --subme 5 --b-rdo --mixed-refs --bime --8x8dct --threads 1 --trellis 2 --no-psnr --progress -o "1.mkv" "final.avs"

echo #
echo ########## avc 2 ##########
echo #

date /t
time /t
start /b /wait /belownormal "#" "D:\Al\x264\x264.exe" --keyint 250 --min-keyint 25 --scenecut 30 --bframes 2 --b-bias 0 --b-pyramid --ref 8 --filter -1:0 --bitrate 600 --qpmin 10 --qpmax 51 --qpstep 4 --ratetol 1.0 --vbv-maxrate 0 --ipratio 1.2 --pbratio 1.3 --chroma-qp-offset 0 --pass 3 --stats "avc.stats" --qcomp 0.60 --analyse all --direct temporal --weightb --me "umh" --merange 16 --subme 6 --b-rdo --mixed-refs --bime --8x8dct --threads 1 --trellis 2 --no-psnr --progress -o "test 600.mkv" "final.avs"

date /t
time /t
pause
How can i do something equivalent with the HandBrakeCLI ?

Thanks

You can't really--there's no AviSynth for Mac/Linux yet and HB doesn't have .mkv support yet.

Of course, you can do a "batch file" using a shell script, or just a long command line.

I'm not entirely sure what you're doing--it looks like you're doing a first pass and an n-th pass but never going back for the 2nd pass. And you're specifying a bunch of options you don't have to, because they're default values (like the keyint values of 250 and 25--so I hope you're transcoding PAL video).

The first command would look like this:

Code: Select all

./HandBrakeCLI -i DVD -o 1.mp4 -b 600 -e x264 -x keyint=250:min-keyint=25:scenecut=30:bframes=2:b-bias=0:b-pyramid:ref=8:filter=-1,0:qpmin=10:qpmax=51:qpstep=4:ratetol=1:vbv-maxrate=0:ipratio=1.2:pbratio=1.3:chroma-qp-offset=0:qcomp=0.60:analyse=all:direct=temporal:weightb:me=hex:merange=16:subme=5:b-rdo:mixed-refs:bime:8x8dct:threads=1:trellis=2:no-psnr:pass=1:stats=~/Documents/avc.stats
You can string command lines together by separating them with semi-colons instead of carriage returns.

Of course, if you this with a shell script, you could save yourself the trouble of writing everything out each time. Store all the bits that don't change between passes in variables.

You might also want to look at some of the queuing scripts people have posted in this forum.

Thanks for your (quick) answer.

Doesn't Matter, i can mux after.

I don't know how to do his on mac but i think it's easy.

It's French DVD so PAL :D

I will try this in my next encode.

semi-colons=; ?

Just change the bitrate what i need.

In which section can i find this ?

Thanks :)
