I don't know how many people are movie watchers here, but I'm curious as to what other people here think of the quality of the settings I use when compressing digital copies of my Blu-rays.

@Zuon: I do the same man.

But I usually don't mess with anything except for putting the quality counter down to 24. Still retains as much quality as possible but compresses it down nicely. I'd say if you have a movie that's worth 20GB uncompressed, it'll knock it down to 2GB.

I find the RF slider far too unpredictable, so I use average bitrate with 2-pass encoding (turbo first pass). The bitrates I choose are high compared to most people's preferences.

  • Dimensions - Anamorphic - None
  • Filters - All set to Off
  • Framerate - Same as source, constant (Unless the disc has a variable framerate, which almost none do.)
  • Encoder preset - Very slow
  • Encoder tune - Usually Grain
  • Profile - High 4.1

@mandzilla: Hey, the fact that your first thought was about cars just shows how much cooler you are than me.

Oh no, I wouldn't say that. Have just had a bunch of trouble with handbrakes over the years is all haha.
