The HQ 1080p preset, with the resolution increased to match your source, the encoder preset as slow as you can tolerate, the RF increased until you're happy with the output size, and the audio set for AAC passthrough.

If you have any followup questions, post your encoding log from your most recent attempt.

You create a new preset and set the resolution limits in the "create new preset" dialog, e.g. here under macOS:
