Preset Formats

Post by sunnah »

I am confused about what results the preset formats have and why or if should I use them instead of the default settings?

MacOS: 10.14.6
Handbrake: 1.1.2

I have been using the default settings for along time and I recently discovered the presets. I am interested in the 1080p videos at 60fps. I have a SONY Bravia 4K and I would like my videos to be in thier best quality. I know a lot there is a lot of variables in the settings and a simple answer is not expected. Basically, I am looking to get a nice clear near 4K quality. I am choosing the VimeoYouTube HQ 1080p60 whereas the default was Fast1080p30. Am I doing it right or should I leave it the default? Thanks.

Code: Select all
