Knowing that x264 doe good job (but i still quite can't figure out what is the best way to use it : (i tried hand break , but results was not so happy )
i am wondering what encoder is considered top notch and professional to create H264 MOV , for instance the kind of quality that is available on iTunes/apple TV rental
I use Matrox compress HD , and even if does a good job , sometime does some pretty big fuck up (bi pixelations etc...(there are some scene changes that i am NOT able to get properly encoded using that card ... and i have to say that using the latest compressor 4 , even if the speed is zoo slow , the quality is more precise than Compress HD matrox ...
i think that segment re-encoding is the way to get an high quality H264 (so boosting data rate on specific scenes ) as well as multi passes (more the 2)
i am wondering what kind of system is used to achieve the apple Tv H264 quality , that pack in 1.6 GB a 2h HD Movie with pretty stunning results
as far as i know sony blu code does H264 and segment re-encoding , but i think only for H264 Blu ray compliant ...
does anyone know how achieve truly professional H264 .mov ?
As i said , many encoder does good job , but sometimes some scenes require re-encoding (suing different settings ) so i guess segment re-encoding is truly a must ...
thanks a lot
