    What are benefits - if any - of retaining original MTS files after QSFixing them?

    So far I have always kept one copy of my originals, but I've only made redundant/"backup" copies of the QSF files. I suppose my real question should have been, "what could the original file contain that the QSF file is missing?". Videohelp points to a page on Videoredo.net that described what...

    What are benefits - if any - of retaining original MTS files after QSFixing them?

    I have many hours' worth of files recorded with my own devices (phones, cameras, camcorders - typically MTS files). Before I do any editing I run them through Quickstream Fix where they get saved as mp4 files. By habit I have always saved the original files, but because these files are now...

    QSF Errors

    For a few years now I've had this problem with numerous h.264 files from our TiVos and sometimes I only get the audio at the end. Some channels, and specifically certain programs are more problematic than others. I know it has to do with PTS errors because sometimes I can get portions of the...

    Advanced feature request-- x264, x265 additional parameters

    I appreciate your insight and attempt to help without knowing exactly what I may or may not understand. I was planning to stick with x264 and average bitrate-based "very slow" speed encoding. That is until I recoded some video that had motion blur from severe camera motion that was handled...

    Advanced feature request-- x264, x265 additional parameters

    Okay, I've been an engineer (for nearly 40 years) where 360 of something are considered a HUGE sample size, but I can see how with video dividing those frames up in various ways (where I-frames can be far, far apart from each other) it's not. I was just figuring it might be enough to see some...

    Advanced feature request-- x264, x265 additional parameters

    This may or may not be related. I have a short 1080p segment I recorded with a handheld (for some motion-blur) at about 27 MB/s and 59.94 frames/s. After QSF, I've recoded it at every Encoder preset speed using HandBrake 1.2.2 x265 and VRDTV6 (808) HEVC at CQ22 and CRF22, respectively. The...

    Advanced feature request-- x264, x265 additional parameters

    Wow - thanks for the tip! When I looked at the advanced options previously I saw that it was grayed out and assumed it was disabled by the selection of something like CRF. It wasn't intuitively obvious to me that checking the box would enable modification. This opens up a whole new world...

    Advanced feature request-- x264, x265 additional parameters

    When Constant Rate Factor is chosen, I would gladly trade the long Rate factor slider bar for something like a drop-down selection or an increase/decrease scroller to make room for an Encoder Preset speed selector.

    Joining files recoded to HEVC by VRD vs same files recoded by VidCoder (Handbrake)

    Thanks for the link. TVSuite 808 beta worked! It sure is nice to know I won't have to recode the numerous files that had already been converted using VidCoder or HandBrake. Nonetheless, going forward I would love to use VRD as a door-to-door (as musicvid put it) solution if I could just have...

    VRD Pro 6 License

    I take it the key(s) for VideoReDo TVSuite V5 or V6 won't work?

    Joining files recoded to HEVC by VRD vs same files recoded by VidCoder (Handbrake)

    The 808a beta won't accept the key posted in the applicable thread, so I didn't get a chance to try it. I don't think I clarified that I'm using VideoReDo TVSuite V5 and V6 instead of VideoReDo Pro 5 and 6, so maybe that has something to do with it. I updated VRD TVSuite to build 806 and it...

    Joining files recoded to HEVC by VRD vs same files recoded by VidCoder (Handbrake)

    Danr - ashamed to admit I'm still using build 803. I'll update that later tonight to the 808 beta. musicvid - Agreed - the latest version of VidCoder has made the establishment of the encoding settings much more cumbersome than it's been in the past. I've got it mostly figured out through...

    Joining files recoded to HEVC by VRD vs same files recoded by VidCoder (Handbrake)

    I have a large number - over 250 GB worth - of short 1080p h.264.MTS video files recorded by my camera that I've recoded into smaller files. Most of them have been recoded with VidCoder to the x265 codec using a constant quality of 22. With the introduction of VRD 6, I've recoded a number of...

    Edit 2K and 4K YouTube videos without "major recode"?

    I was clicking in the open space hoping to select a few ticks to the left of the "current" one. Thanks for asking about the keyboard as I hadn't tried it but now see that I can tab to the slider then move it one tick at a time with the left and right arrow keys.

    Edit 2K and 4K YouTube videos without "major recode"?

    So it looks like I'm going to have to re-encode what I want to save out of a VP9 codec in any case. I wanted to try adjusting the quality setting in the "CRF Encoding" mode and the slider was initially set at 23 and seemed to only permit me to jump 10 ticks to the right or 10 ticks to the left...
