CLI much slower than GUI version; using custom preset

Post by MagNj »

Description of problem or question:
Compared same job between GUI and CLI and CLI is much slower using a custom preset



Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
Custom preset creation:
  1. Load preset "Very Fast 480p30"
  2. Change Video -> Encoder Options -> Preset from veryfast to ultrafast
  3. Save preset as "Ultra Fast 480p30"
  4. Export preset "Ultra Fast 480p30" to $HOME/Desktop/Ultra_Fast_480p30.json
Used a 2 minute 1080p test.mov video clip as source file
  • H.264 HD (1-1-1)
  • 5.1 (C L R Ls Rs LFE), AAC, 48000 Hz
  • 1920x1080, 16:9
  • 29.97 FPS
  • 17.98 Mbps
The video file can be downloaded from: https://www.mserv.pw/test.mov

GUI version: Opened test.mov, Applied custom preset "Ultra Fast 480p30", And started job
CLI version:

Code: Select all

time $HOME/bin/HandBrakeCLI --preset-import-file $HOME/Desktop/Ultra_Fast_480p30.json -i $HOME/Movies/test.mov -o $HOME/Movies/test.mp4
GUI version took: 0m 40s
CLI version took: 2m 06s


On a 40 minute video clip the difference was much bigger
GUI 12m
CLI 45m

You're importing the preset from the file but not actually using the preset (--preset="Preset_name")…

Re: CLI much slower than GUI version; using custom preset

Post by JohnAStebbins »

The reason for this behaivor is that a preset file can contain multiple presets, so you must specify which of these presets to use. Also, the "--preset-import-file" argument can be a list of files or a directory containing several preset files.

Ah got it, thanks a lot! Tried with the following and much better:
time HandBrakeCLI --preset-import-file /Users/testuser/Desktop/Ultra_Fast_480p30.json -Z "Ultra Fast 480p30" -i /Users/testuser/Movies/test.mov -o /Users/testuser/Movies/test-CLI.mp4
