2-Pass Encoding is Performed with CFR Selected

Post by finch1000 » Tue Feb 05, 2019 7:03 pm

Description of problem or question:
Handbrake is performing 2-pass encoding when CFR is selected in the preset. How do I turn this off since it should not be needed with CFR?

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

1 Pass for a subtitle scan, 1 pass for video. (It wasn't a 2-pass encode).

You can turn off the foreign audio scan via the subtitle tab and it's configuration pane since it' didn't do anything anyway.
[01:47:41] No candidate detected during subtitle scan

Also you say CFR (constant framerate) but you appear to mean CRF (constant rate factor).

Thank you for the help! I didn't realize the first pass was for the foreign audio scan. I keep this on in the event that there is foreign language in the film where there is no hardcoded subtitle. I don't generally keep any subtitles in my videos.

Yes, I apologize. I did mean CRF.
