Output files are too small

Post by jjjman321 »

Description of problem or question:
Input file is 48.2GB, output file is only 14.7GB. Surprised it's that small.

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
Input file is a UHD HEVC 23.976 HDR file, 48.2GB, 55.7MB/s. Using H.265 10-bit (x265) codec, Constant Quality 19 RF, framerate constant same as source, Slow preset, Tune none, Profile Main 10, Level Auto, passing though DTS-HD MA and DTS tracks (and adding a Dolby Pro Logic II track), and using these Advanced Options:
hdr:max-cll=0,0:master-display=G(13250,34500)B(7500,3000)R(34000,16000)WP(15635,16450)L(50,40000000):deblock=-1,-1:no-sao
the output file is only 14.7GB, 17.1MB/s. That seems quite low. Is there a setting/combination of settings that's making this so low? I have no quality concerns (I don't necessarily have a truly discerning eye) but I'm surprised the size isn't larger.

By the way I got the G/B/R/WP/L numbers using the output of this statement:
ffprobe -hide_banner -loglevel warning -select_streams v -print_format json -show_frames -read_intervals "%+#1" -show_entries "frame=color_space,color_primaries,color_transfer,side_data_list,pix_fmt" -i "e:\xxxxx.mkv"

This is my first UHD file I'm using Handbrake on, and the first time I'm using 265, as well as HDR. I'm more used to 264 1080p content which with similar settings (minus the advanced options) seems like the file size wouldn't drop nearly as much.

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
1.3.3

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit, version 1903, build 18362.1016

Re: Output files are too small

Post by jjjman321 »

Perhaps this big reduction in file size is typical of 265 content at Slow preset. Like I said this is my first attempt with 265 stuff.

Re: Output files are too small

All the HDR data has been thrown out by HB, and the 10-bit video converted down to 8-bit before being blown back up to 10-bit, so there's a fair bit lost here.

But if it looks fine to you, enjoy the result. I'd even suggest pushing the RF several points higher for 4K for an even smaller output.

Oh dang, I didn't realize HB still throws out HDR even if I specify the hdr Advanced Option. To keep HDR "correctly" I need to use straight command-line ffmpeg?

That's one option.
