x264 and Encore CS5
on Jan 27, 2012 at 9:37:13 pm

I've been trying to encode my video into a bluray compatible .264 file that Encore CS5 will actually accept and I just can't seem to make it happen.

I'm using the latest Snow Leopard build of x264 available from this site: http://wipple.m25.coreserver.jp/?category_name=x264

The commands I'm using to encode I've slightly modified from here: http://www.x264bluray.com/home/1080i

My commands currently look like this:
x264 --bitrate 40000 --preset veryslow --tune film --fps 29.97 --input-res 1920x1080 --bluray-compat --vbv-maxrate 40000 --vbv-bufsize 30000 --level 4.1 --keyint 30 --slices 4 --tff --colorprim "bt709" --transfer "bt709" --colormatrix "bt709" --sar 1:1 --pass 1 -o Desktop/test.264 Desktop/test-unc.mov

x264 --bitrate 40000 --preset veryslow --tune film --fps 29.97 --input-res 1920x1080 --bluray-compat --vbv-maxrate 40000 --vbv-bufsize 30000 --level 4.1 --keyint 30 --slices 4 --tff --colorprim "bt709" --transfer "bt709" --colormatrix "bt709" --sar 1:1 --pass 2 -o Desktop/test.264 Desktop/test-unc.mov


Every time I import into Encore, it still says it needs to be transcoded and the video also just shows up as green lines. My source videos are Uncompressed 10-bit video housed in a MOV container.

Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong or what I can do to make Encore compatible x264s?

I actually just figured it out. There was a 10-bit version of x264 lingering on my computer. After I got rid of that, the 8-bit one I linked to worked just fine.

Thanks for the link! I'll be sure to keep that handy!

Hello Internet, I owe you one,

Google was no friend at all, it took weeks of retries,
so I contribute to the Cow. I like the Cow.

Concerning the topic no-re-encode import into Encore, but doing it with ffmpeg instead of bare x264:

This Code is working (CBR Example):
/usr/bin/x264 --bitrate 22000 --preset veryslow --tune film --bluray-compat --fps 24 --force-cfr --bframes 3 --ref 4 --muxer raw --no-weightb --weightp 0 --b-pyramid none --vbv-bufsize 25000 --level 4.1 --profile high --keyint 24 --min-keyint 1 --open-gop --slices 4 --colorprim "bt709" --transfer "bt709" --colormatrix "bt709" --sar 1:1 -o /path/to/outputfile.264 --input-res 1920x1080 /path/to/inputfile.mov


And this is my closest working translation to ffmpeg (v2.3 linux, No Audio):
/usr/local/FFmpeg/ffmpeg -y -i "/path/to/inputfile.mov" -strict experimental -c:v libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p -r 24 -s 1920x1080 -filter_complex "setsar=sar=1/1" -preset veryslow -tune film -profile high -x264opts "bitrate=22000:bluray-compat=1:force-cfr=1:bframes=3:ref=4:no-weightb:b-pyramid=none:vbv-bufsize=25000:level=4.1:keyint=24:min-keyint=1" -flags -cgop -sn -an -slices 4 -threads 0 -f h264 "/path/to/outputfile.m4v"


Encore accepts it.
Tested with the "Mac Blu-Ray Player".
It might have unrefined parts, ready for slimming it down further, but as a starting point, it'll do.
I think defining raw -f h264 together with the m4v target did most of it.

Best
M
