What is the best software to edit movies and export the final edit via x264 with custom arguments?
I'm trying to edit a backup of a blu-ray but want to export the final edit with x264. I'm currently using Vegas Pro 14 with x264vfw and the results aren't turning out very good compared to simple x264/x265 launcher for encoding.
I was thinking of rendering the final edit as uncompressed or with a high bitrate h.264 version then encoding that with x264 but I don't like the idea of multiple encodes as each encode loses more detail. I am fine with the one final encode because the final will be a lower bitrate to what the blu-ray originally was but not by much.
Any help is appreciated.

I don't have a sample no. I will try the route of encoding to lossless and then encoding the final in Simple x264/x265 launcher.
My settings in both Simple x264/x265 launcher and vfw were identical just there was a lot of banding and some glitching on the final encode which I don't wan't. Simple x264/x265 launcher doesnt have this problem when encoding from my time using it.
