Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

See the difference in file size: 17.3 GBs vs 20.7 GBs.

This is the first time that I have ever had a file get bigger than the source. I have tried uninstalling Handbrake and reinstalling. Right now, I'm re-encoding another movie that I have done previously to see if I get the same file size. Just trying to rule out something weird like a Windows Update or something that I have installed is messing this up. This has happened on two files so far, but since both of the movies are from the same box set might have something to do with the original format. I just don't know enough about the file format or what I'm looking to make any sense out it. There must be a reason why the file size is larger. At first, I thought that maybe the original was set to a variable frame rate and when I selected the same as source, maybe it got confused and used the higher Frame rate. I don't know, I'm confused, any help is appreciated.

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

1.2.2

Re: Handbrake creates larger file than sorce with RF set at 18

Post by Woodstock » Tue Mar 26, 2019 11:22 pm

You're asking handbrake to store more detail than the original video had, so it's taking up more space. If you're starting with a Bluray source, RF=20 will still be overkill.

Remember, the SMALLER the RF number, the BIGGER the output file, and lower RF values will not get you better resolution than was in the source.

I know how the RF numbers work and how it is related to the size of the output. The issue is that with RF=18 is creating a bigger file than the original. I have use the same setting on about 50 movies so far and I have never had this issue before. So what is it about the original file that is so special to make the output so much bigger?

And I don't like RF=20 because it does leave some blocking in dark scenes.

Source must be super-grainy is all.

Try using NLMeans Light High Motion to clean up the noise and make the video less complex, thus more compressible.

The movie is kind of grainy, so I will try the Filter setting that you suggested.
