x264 Encoding Issues
Have had a problem with H264 encoding since x264 has been available to public.
The problem been that no profile is any good and neither so far any settings people have posted been good. The video always seems blurred or more so on writing car number plates or road signs not visible correctly.
I have tried many times using virtualdub with x264vfw but have tried a few others very small encoders all which have been the same very poor.
This is with scene 720 or 1080 i/p reducing size to 720x404 or 704x396. Even tried with all profiles and highest other settings 4:4:4 and 6.2 with any CRF or CQP at 1 or ABR at 10000. Extreme settings but still nothing has made any videos crisp. This is also with using intermediate lags, huffy or magic (uncompressed) avi.
End result always seems blurred or otherwise need to double take vision (readjust my vision) for each scene change. The source are crisp and nice not the encodes I do.
So looking for another solution that is also a so easy to change settings. Though mainly those would be to change resolution size and sometimes frame rate.
Not looking for any huge bloated GUI something small that can do resize and frame rate but mainly able to encode to encoders best ability for crisp video each time. Prefer to use video source than have need for intermediate. Simple minimal small ui is all that I need if it can show the settings used the better so get used to correct x264 settings been used so able to continue with those with other software's if one GUI stops development etc.
x264 Preset I would prefer to use would be 1 pass Veryfast with CRF 19 or 20 since that I have read people get very good results with and the encode time is then far less.
Need UI's only that are proven and able to encode x264 avc1 videos so they have crisp vision videos each time.
Crisp videos all pixels in detail present that are able to be seen easily and instantly for each video frame. All writing car number plates and road signs instantly readable all times all other details to visible. But not produce blurred videos that need constant eye readjustments to watch the videos.
