    You can disable muxing by selecting the No Muxing muxer profile.

    In fact, you can disable more or less everything except the things you want:

    What would be the highest quality resizer for up-scaling in staxrip?
    Lately there is much talk about AI-upscaling..., but I guess this is not to find in staxrip (yet)?

    There is no "best for every case". Different material may make you prefer different resampler kernels because they differ in the amount of smoothing or "sharpening" (with the side effects of adding ringing artifacts around borders).

    And StaxRip is only a user interface creating and executing AviSynth scripts, so it can only offer you a choice between scaling algorithms provided by AviSynth or its available plugins.

    I don't believe this hyped AI upscaler is available as such. But there are plugins with Edge Directed Interpolation (EDI), especially some based on pre-trained Neural Networks, e.g. NNEDI3: These plugins can upsample images by powers of 2 (means, 2× or 4× ... the original size in both directions), while preserving rather sharp looking edges without too much ringing. You can then downscale to a desired resolution with another simpler resizer (e.g. Spline16).

    Ok, so what is the highest quality build-in resizer with EDI for up-scaling in staxrip?

    Just don't over-complicate things. An easy question can be answered the same, for example, there is none or something like that. I am just a novice user using staxrip. I don't search complex solutions.
    If it is not included in staxrip, it doesn't exist for me.

    Some people like it "sharp" and prefer Lanczos, others don't like the exaggeration of noise and edge ringing. For general content I would suggest neutral or soft bicubic, or Spline16, which avoids too much ringing. If you have several similar functions with different numbers: The higher numbers usually cause a "sharper" image but more artifacts and more exaggerated noise.

    For cartoons I would recommend NNEDI3's rpow2 resize first and then a downscale with Spline16. But that's my personal taste. And I believe StaxRip does not even offer this two-step technique. It may require manual editing of the scvript.

    I just looked into StaxRip ... it has a "SuperRes" submenu. But I believe those are more interesting for computer generated videos? Not sure...

    Let's sum it up: Gotta try them all. Compare them, get a feeling how much you like which. In general, "PointResize" will probably be the least preferred choice, except for resizing pixel images.

    Ok, thanks anyway. I will look at SuperRes.
    I want to upscale just ordinary TV, no cartoons or similar.

  10. I'm unclear on what the differences are between choosing x265 or FFMPEG -x265 encoders. I had been using FFMPEG command line to do my x265 encodes before testing out StaxRip.

    Seems to be a lot more options under x265 than FFMPEG, but is it using a different encoder library? or are the both using libx265?

    libx265 is a version of x265 wrapped and tuned as a module fitted for FFmpeg by the FFmpeg team, while the x265 executable used in StaxRip is a standalone static binary file (built by @Patman) based on the x265 project source. They are both based on the same project, x265, so there are no intrinsic differences except for some minor modifications in the course of being adapted for FFmpeg in libx265.

  12. @Jkyle - Thanks for the info. Thats what i had suspected, but wanted to confirm.

    Following up on that, I was trying to figure out why using x265 was taking significantly different amounts of time than using the ffmpeg x265, so i wanted to run some A/B tests. And thats when I discovered the ffmpeg x265 didn't support 10-bit encoding natively.

    I downloaded and compiles the Media Autobuild Suite, which had an x265 that supported 10-bit and 12-bit. Confirmed that it compiled correctly and supported 10bits. Thought I was on my way. I copied the ffmpeg.exe from the media autobuild into the StaxRip FFmpeg folder and restarted. But when I try the advanced options to choose 10-bits, I'm still getting errors when it runs, where FFMPEG isn't recognizing parameters like "-pix_fmt yuv420p10" or "output-depth=10" or "-profile:v main10."

    So that tells me that I still don't have StaxRip pointing to the right ffmpeg.exe. Should I just re-install StaxRip and swap in the ffmpeg before I ever run it? Since I put the new 10-bit ffmpeg in the same location as the old 8-bit ffmpeg.exe, I'm not clear on why the commands aren't working.

    Any suggestions?

    Use the command line to test your build with some of these "missing" command parameters

  14. -pix_fmt yuv420p10 worked in command line

    "C:\test>ffmpeg.exe -i lightsaber.avi -ss 00:00:05 -t 00:00:05 -c:v libx265 -pix_fmt yuv420p10 D:\test\lighstabertest.mkv"
    created the expected output file, confirmed 10bit with MediaInfo tool.

    -output-depth=10 generates "Unrecognized option 'output-depth=10'.
    Error splitting the argument list: Option not found" in command line. So it seems thats no longer a correct / supported parameter.

    -profile:V main10 resulted in an 8bit output file. (edit, but output a 10bit file when added to the custom field. Obviously more user error).

    "C:\test>ffmpeg.exe -i D:\test\GBH.mkv -ss 00:00:05 -t 00:00:05 -c:v libx265 -profile:V main10 D:\test\gbhtest.mkv"
    created the output file, but MediaInfo says its 8bit.

    I tried the same file again with -pix_fmt yuv420p10, and it resulted in the expected 10bit file.

    [Edit] - Going back into StaxRip, changing the first option from Avisynth/VapourSynth to "Software" works when adding -pix_fmt yuv420p10 to the custom field outputs a 10bit file. So clearly 1d10t user error for not understanding the settings. I left them as is, assuming they were default and should work as is.

    That said, it doesn't seem like FFMmpeg x265 is properly handling HDR10. Looks washed out.

    You're wrong.

    Along with the pixel format/profile options, don't forget to set up proper parameters for color space related options like this:

    Code:
    -color_primaries bt2020 -color_trc smpte2084 -colorspace bt2020nc
    Rec. 2020 and SMPTE ST 2084 (PQ) transfer function for HDR10.

    And make sure to put those values in libx265 private options as well along with SMPTE ST 2086 "Mastering Display Color Volume" static metadata like this:

    Code:
    -x265-params colorprim=bt2020:transfer=smpte2084:colormatrix=bt2020nc:master-display="G(13250,34500)B(7500,3000)R(34000,16000)WP(15635,16450)L(10000000,500)"
    (master-display option is for P3 display.)

    You can also add additional max-cll values if need arises.

  16. Thank you for the proper code. If Handbrake would handle HDR properly, I could stop beating my head off the wall with this. Clearly in over my head here. You're a savior.

    In my earlier attempts, I had used
    HTML Code:
    -master-display "G(13250,34500)B(7500,3000)R(34000,16000)WP(15635,16450)L(40000000,50)"  -hdr10  -colorprim bt2020  -colormatrix bt2020nc -transfer smpte2084 -range limited -max-cll "1633,114" -repeat-headers -hrd -aud
    but was getting the same error earlier about unrecognized options. I can see that I was close - but not close enough - to using the correct syntax and parameters. When in doubt, its user error.

    You must translate x265 options into libx265 private options in order to use them in ffmpeg.
    • The dash(-) prefix is removed.
    • Put = between option names and values.
    • Put : between options.
    • Put , between values.
    • Put all of the above after -x265-params and a space.

    So your original x265 command line option settings should be translated for ffmpeg like this:

    Code:
    -x265-params master-display="G(13250,34500)B(7500,3000)R(34000,16000)WP(15635,16450)L(40000000,50)":colorprim=bt2020:colormatrix=bt2020nc:transfer=smpte2084:max-cll=1633,114:repeat-headers=1:hrd=1:aud=1
    (-hdr10 is redundant and -range limited can be replaced with the FFmpeg global option -color_range tv)

    And you can put the whole libx265 private options as part of your FFmpeg command line.

  18. Thank you, again, for the clear explanation. Trying to learn the parameters and the multiple syntax structures at the same time -- with zero base knowledge -- was probably not the best way to approach this. Walk before running and all.

  19. Good day. StaxRip-x64-2.1.4.2-Beta.
    Found a significant error. We have a mode: QVBR-Quality Variable bitrate using bitrate
    Codec-Intel H.264
    Preset-Best
    Profile-High
    Level-4.1
    It is possible to specify the video bitrate you want. I have a source file with a video bitrate of 24000. I put 19000 for a new file, but the encoding goes according to a different scenario, and I get QVBR Quality - 23. The final file has a video bitrate of only 3100. Why is the result distorted?

    P.S. My wish is that the authors improve the work of presets and add new ones, because not everyone knows how to work with the command line and are well versed in encoding settings. Thank you for understanding.

  20. Would someone mind explaining which one of these settings is causing my encodes to go from ~12 hours to 128 hours? I'm just playing around with different settings (borrowed from other people's encodes), and don't understand a lot of them. But this set of parameters increased my encode time by 10x. Took my encodes from ~3.5-4 fps to .5 fps.

  21. Hello everyone !

    I'm new with StaxRip and amazed by the efficiency and quality of the software... for small videos. I have indeed a problem with longer ones. When i try to convert a huge MP4 (remux videos from blurays) into a smaller MP4 h264 (threw "h264" encoder, or threw "NVIDIA h264" encoder), I end up with an incomplete video file : the sound is complete and the right duration, but the video stops much earlier that it should, at 1/5 or 1/4 of the movie (and the total file size is between 1 Gb and 3 Gb, instead of the 8/9 Gb projected file). Each movie always stops at the same TC/size (it changes if i change encoder).


    Any idea of what could be causing that?
    There is still free space on the hard drive (around 92 Gb).

    EDIT: In fact it works well if i choose MKV as a container (the video is complete). So the problem seems linked to MP4 container (MP4box). For now I can export MKV then remux them in MP4 with avidemux, but if you know the solution for direct MP4 export without this bug i'm still interested!






    If data can help, here are the encoding data of an h264 encoding export, for a movie stuck at 3,69 Gb :

    I was recommended this software when I asked for a program which can do a deblocking pass. I have been reading the manual but I just tried to run a test conversion and it failed with this report (I continue my post after this copy-paste, but I copy pasted another block of text and pasted that below my post):

    This video was created with the Elgato video capture device (I think its a quality product and I have heard the brand advertised on gaming channels; so I assume quite popular). I have not tried another VHS rip from this device I changed to a file encoded with FFMpeg from stills, and it worked fine even reducing the filesize by a 1/5th. Next I tested a large 1.6GB file which seems to be creating an even larger file!

    How do I make sure my GPU is being utillized? With mediacoder it only uses GPU with x264 and you're limited to 1080p encode or less (I have a 1440p monitor now).
    Edit: Found it.

  24. Good night. StaxRip-x64-2.1.4.8-Beta.
    QVBR (Quality Variable bitrate using bitrate) preset for Intel H.264 does not work. This has been observed in all recent beta. Whatever high bitrate I set, the program switches to Quality Variable bitrate using quality - 23. If necessary, I will indicate the exact parameters of my files.
    Also, another preset for Intel H.264: LA (VBR Lookahead) does not work for me. If earlier it was possible to set the maximum Lookahead Depth - 100, now the launch with any settings ends in a crash: Failed to initialize encoder. : invalid video parameters. QSVEncC.exe finished with error!
    Please pay attention to these problems. thanks

    StaxRip 2.1.4.8 (same problem with earlier versions too)
    Win 7 64

    Video trying to encode is US broadcast 1080p,
    with YUV422p10le capture stream used for input

    Tried Staxrip filters options for both portable and for direct installation, same results:

    Use of Filter > Field > IVTC during x264/x265 encoding causes encoding process to crash with following error:

    "output various data from avs to stdout has stopped working"

    log file:

    x265 [error]: unable to open input file <->



    and when trying x264 instead of x265 the error log also says:
    avs [error]: not supported pixel type: YUV422P10


    i just tried x264 again and even with IVTC filter off I still get that error, and it even still happens when i change everything to run at 8bits instead of 10
    isnt there a way to process yuv422 into any kind of x264 file?

    have tried with Staxrip bundled portable AVS/VS and using installed AVS+ and VS, same errors always about only accepting YUV4XX 8 bit
    so the staxrip program has no way to use anything except 8 bit video? no, staxrip can process 10 bit video. but staxrip gets error when i use that. why? how do i get that to work?

    it doesnt make sense why even x265 wouldnt work
    the only filters im using are Source, IVTC and Crop in that order

  26. Hello!

    I've used StaxRip before and I've found it pretty easy to use. Now I want to try a different usage scenario but I'm having problems :/

    I'm using StaxRip 2.1.3.0. What I'm trying to do is run StaxRip from CLI.

    I would like to:

    Add a job to StaxRip from CLI (or Powershell)
    StaxRip start working on that job.
    I then add another job via CLI, and StaxRip starts working on that.
    I would like to repeat this BUT I want StaxRip to respect the 'Max number of parallel processes' that is set in Settings -> General. Which, in my case, is currently '2'.

    I can't get this to work though. StaxRip keeps on Starting new jobs, even when there are 2 encodes currently being done.

    The commands I'm using are:

    StaxRip -LoadTemplate:TEST1 C:\Users\***\Desktop\video.h264 -StartEncoding

    The template 'TEST1' is just a simple resize 1080p to 1280x720 x264 encode.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks!

  27. Hi,

    i have the Message "Script exceeded memory limit. Consider raising cache size." I know i have to set "core.max_cache_size =". Can you please tell me where exactly in staxrip i can set this for vapoursynth?

    I also got that message and I have plenty of RAM, so I am curios too.

  29. I think it should be written directly in the script which staxrip uses to run vapoursynth. but i couldnt find that script.

    after trying arround a bit i found out that the message dissapears when you write the max cache size function in the box at options - filters - code inserted at top of scripts. :

    im not really sure if this is the right way to do it. but it seems to work, it uses about 4gb more RAM than before...
