Covert MKV to MP4 and stay 4k

Post by SCTexan »

Every video I convert, changes to standard HD(1920x1080), I would like it to remain in 4k (3840x2076). How can I do that?

Select one of the 2160p 4K presets, such as the Apple one under Devices.

Ahhh, I see it now. Is there any impact on what is produced over the basic setting?

HandBrake's 4K presets (with the exception of the Playstation and YouTube ones) make H.265 video, which is slower to encode, but is what most 4K video players and devices expect. You can adjust the quality as you please, see https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.3.0/work ... ality.html

Thanks all... I finally had to just kill the program. It sat in "multi" mode for 24 hours. Went to Wondeshare.
