Profile choices.

Oct 1, 2012 at 4:51 PM

Thank you for your work creating this program. I know that you can change the x264 Profile setting in the Video setting tab but I would also like an advanced option to pick the level and force all my encodes to High 4.1. The reason is that sometimes I increase the reference frames, High Profile Level 5 is automatically chosen but the rest of my encoding specs do not use all the features of Level 5 but a lower level is sufficient.

This H.264 Levels tutorial should be of help to you. Many times at a given resolution you have to have less than a certain number of reference frames to fit in a profile. If you add too many reference frames you simply do not fit into level 4.1 any more.
