4k conversion in high quality without compression.

Post by cleytonjk »

Hi everyone, everything fine?

My name is Cleyton and I'm from Brazil, I'm looking for a preset for 4k conversions in the highest quality, I'm not looking for file compression, I want to extract the maximum quality from the files. My idea is very simple, I want to combine 4k foreign versions of films with Brazilian dubbing, thus achieving better final quality with the dubbing. However, most video editors don't accept the .mkv format, so that's my problem, I wanted to switch to .mp4 4k without losing quality of the films, so I can edit them. Can anyone help me with which path to follow within HandBrake?

thanks in advance.

Hi Cleyton,
to my mind it's not possible in handbrake without reencoding.
You can do it with ffmpeg.

The commandline looks like this:

Code: Select all

ffmpeg -i input.mkv -c copy output.mp4
Remember that the format has limitations and probably not everything can always be transferred to mp4.
Bye
