[QUOTE=DrageMester;2742450]For fun I just tried encoding a 7 minute clip from a DVD using VidCoder 1.5.28 with rhe x264 encoder at Constant Quality 22 with Decomb set to default and Denoise set to NL-means Medium and x264 preset set to medium.
I’m using my laptop with an i7 Ivy Bridge Quad Core processor at 2.3 GHz with TurboBost to 3.1 GHz.
It was encoded at 36 fps. I don’t think that was too bad. Handbrake 0.10.0 encodes at the same speed when using same settings.
In VidCoder 1.5.29 I can set Denoise to NL-means but the setting is ignored and automatically resets itself to Off or hqdn3d so there’s some bug there.
I’m guessing that there is some significant difference in the settings you are using for VidCoder and Handbrake that you are not aware off, that’s making them encode at different speeds.[/QUOTE]
36FPs on an notebook … but then again … decomb is an performance hit too when set on highest bob like i did…
but actually matters not much as soon as u use nlmeans denoiser !!
Iam using FX-8350 @4500mhz…
And i did the test and lowered the clock frequences of my cpu…
Guess wot, the same performance of 22ish …
Then i thought maybe is NLmeans more gpu based… could that be it ?
But then again, if that were the case i should have beaten ur 36fps with ease since i have an HD7950 boost 3GB!!
Yet the fps rate stay’s fixed while aLL cores are working their buts of at near 100% regardless of any settings with the exception of the denoiser settings!!
As soon i disable denoiser, and decomb/deinterlace to none but leave everything else as it is. I get average fps between 300 - 400 for DVD SD material ofcourse.
Well, i have thought about it and checked the difference in settings between vidcoder & handbrake by going through the custom profiles i have made .
And i haven’t found any difference at all… especially since the settings are specificly for old and grainy tv serries on dvd… and i needed to do quite allot of these.
So i just copy/past in manner of speaking the settings from vidcoder to handbrake.
Like X264 high profile & medium settings were pretty much the same…
I use pal source material , so instead of 25fps which is the source input, i use 50fps and Decomb is set to BOB.
And NLmeans to medium… but NLmeans on Ulight, light or HIgh doesnt affect performance anymore !!! as soon you use NLmeans, the performance drop is like fixed !!
So i use the fps & decomb trick especially to have the maximum smoothest playback in my stand alone .
Because, i have noticed that some old tv-series mastered on dvd do infact have judder/jitter in panning scenes !!! Quite annoying to watch !!
And yes, after doing many tests … i find that the BEST sollutions wos to use Frame double sort of speak by using BoB + 50Fps and voila… THAT solved QUITE a FEW pITA episodes that are wos almost unbearable to watch !!!
But , ill give vidcoder another try…
[B]BIG EDIT [/B] what about that !!! Now i know why i get such an low and fixed framerates in handbrake !!
Err, wos ignoring and using To_O many x264 cmd lines in extra options
as soon i deleted all the extra options, i get an average framerate of about 46
