The QSV h.264 looks pretty good and is about twice the size of the plain jane h.264 not using any encoder hardware. Using Nvidia encode on a Quadro P1000 (I know that's a cheap card!) the encode is twice as fast but quality suffers a little especially with motion with file size increase of 150%.

For some reason I thought the h.265 encode would produce a smaller file size. Still a novice at Handbrake settings. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated especially in the video setting tab. Also, I have "optimize for web" in the default setting- which is probably what I need 90% of time but wondering how much difference that makes in quality. Will try some additional tests.

When I tried a 2-pass encode my system acted like it was going to have a stroke so I backed off of that. May have used an incorrect number for the data rate. Wish data rates had a preset.

Oh, just "trolling" for a little Handbrake feedback I guess. Will look at some YouTubes on it.
hi trillium.
what is the final export to h.265 intended for? ie.. personal or to give to a client etc?
