Sharing my preset

Post by mike548141 »

Hi,

Sorry if this is the wrong place, I wanted to share my preset in-case its useful for anyone. Most of the source content I've tested is DVD (720p) and Bluray (1080p) content, playback testing is mainly on Apple devices. I like to keep everything as close to original quality as possible.

If you have any suggested tweaks I'm happy to hear them, in particular I'm still getting Compression artifacts on black backgrounds that are not in the source video.
Preset currently testing in HB 0.10.4 beta. I normally make the first audio track AAC and the rest of the tracks auto pass-thru.

A few non-recommended practices here:

1) You've identified DVD as 720p, which is never possible.
2) Your audio tracks are in the wrong order for Apple devices.
3) You've saved some random title-specific cropping into the preset.
4) You've mashed around x264 settings to arbitrary values.

That one's normal behavior; since autocrop is enabled they have no effect.
