Post by jondalar »

Description of problem or question:
Hello,
I have a 50GB blu-ray movie and I want to make it a MKV of the same quality with Burn In subs (Dutch).
So I want the audio and video untouched (no loss in quality).
What are the proper settings?
I treid some but I can't find the right ones.

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

HandBrake version 1.3.2

Operating system and version Windows 10 Home 64 bit

You have to encode the video, so there will be minimal loss of video quality.

You have to encode the video, so there will be minimal loss of video quality.
Thank you for your quick response.

Yes, I want to do that, but what are the best settings?

I'll try.
It takes about a week to complete the encoding of this setting.

But you do not have to encode the whole file to find out if the settings work - Select a section that has fairly complicated video and at least one subtitle, encode just that section with different settings. Compare the results. Which look best?
