    Hi to,

    in this moment I try to use in the SpeedRazor for cats HD 3.11.095.2014-rev.15.32547854IIbeta8547859999 the x264VFW plugin to export in mpeg4

    Click image for larger version

Name:	SR264.JPG
Views:	168
Size:	281.7 KB
ID:	26436

    in the "extra command line" I have to add options so that encoding of x264VFW is similar to the ffmpeg commandline:

    Code:
    ffmpeg.exe -y -i input.avi -c:v libx264 -profile:v high422 -level:v 3 -g 33 -bf 1 -crf 18 -pix_fmt yuv422p -flags +ildct+ilme -top 1 -x264opts tff=1  -aspect 16:9 out.avi
    please note that I need to export in a mpeg4 in avi, if possibile, this time. Not a .mp4 file

    An I wonder: if the fields "preset tuning profile level" are not congruent with the "extra comman line" option what happens?

    So I how I modify the extracommandline to match the ffmpeg commanline? thanks

    extra commandline options override the GUI

    --keyint 33 --bframes 1 --tff --crf 18


    (you can use CRF 18 in the drop down menu as well, instead of CQP , select CRF quality based)

    SAR x:y is for Sample Aspect Ratio (you can think of it as the pixel aspect ratio , or the w:h of the pixels). -aspect 16:9 in ffmpeg is Display Aspect Ratio (DAR)

    Display Aspect Ratio = Frame Aspect Ratio * Sample Aspect Ratio

    e.g
    for 1920x1080

    16/9 = 1920/1080 * 1/1

    So you would enter 1:1 (ie square pixels)

    Depends if you're using ITU or non-ITU aspect ratio interpretation

    For 16:9, mathematically correct, is non-ITU 64:45

    16/9 = 720/576 * 64/45



    But ITU ratio is 16:11, because they base their calculations on the inner 702 width (rounded to 704)

    ffmpeg uses non-ITU rules. Broadcast, NLE's usually use ITU rules, but these days most places don't care (unless you're submitting to BBC, they are more strict). It's just that you should be aware of slightly different AR interpretations
