Please Help me Set These Encode Settings

Dec 10, 2014 at 5:02 PM
Hello developers, I need to keep these settings for each of my encodes. Where should I add the following string in Vidcoder. I'm using the latest version released on 7Th december 2014.

I'll manage the audio myself. Just tell me about the settings below to be posted in advance tab or how to and where?

The settings are below -

cabac=1 / ref=3 / deblock=1:0:0 / analyse=0x3:0x113 / me=umh / subme=8 / psy=1 / psy_rd=1.00:0.00 / mixed_ref=1 / me_range=16 / chroma_me=1 / trellis=1 / 8x8dct=1 / cqm=0 / deadzone=21,11 / fast_pskip=0 / chroma_qp_offset=-2 / threads=8 / lookahead_threads=2 / sliced_threads=0 / nr=0 / decimate=1 / interlaced=0 / bluray_compat=0 / constrained_intra=0 / bframes=8 / b_pyramid=2 / b_adapt=1 / b_bias=0 / direct=1 / weightb=1 / open_gop=0 / weightp=2 / keyint=250 / keyint_min=23 / scenecut=40 / intra_refresh=0 / rc_lookahead=40 / rc=crf / mbtree=1 / crf=25.5 / qcomp=0.60 / qpmin=0 / qpmax=69 / qpstep=4 / vbv_maxrate=10000 / vbv_bufsize=10000 / crf_max=0.0 / nal_hrd=none / filler=0 / ip_ratio=1.40 / aq=1:1.00

You probably want to use the Advanced tab under x264 and change the string to be this format:

direct=none:8x8dct=0:cabac=0

Though some of the other settings might be slightly different as well, you should probably follow this guide to make sure it is using the correct term and syntax: http://mewiki.project357.com/wiki/X264_Settings . Your "aq" parameter looks like it may need to change, for one.

Can you please tell me the exact string to paste in my advance tab. I been using Vidcoder from last 2 years, but still not getting it. It will really mean a world to me, if you can arrange a setting as I posted above?

I would actually recommend you not use the Advanced tab and instead use the built-in x264 presets. If you are such an advanced user that you simply must use the Advanced tab, I am sure you can figure it out for yourself. I've given you all the information required to do so.

Well, I may be using it from last few years, but I encoded on the go with ABR and was kinda satisfied, but now, I wanted to go with CRF. Okay, if you're unable to post exact advance tab preset, can you suggest a built in profile that will come close to this?

I can't read that huge block of advanced settings and tell you a preset to use; I don't know the advanced settings that well. I would recommend just encoding a few preview clips with different presets until you get one with a compression/encode time tradeoff that you like. But yes, CRF is the way to go.

Alright, thanks for the help! Keep up.
