Having trouble tracking down the precise function of "Use Maximum Render Quality" - Adobe docs only say:
When this option is selected, Adobe Media Encoder renders the sequence with the greatest quality of motion. This option slows rendering substantially, and requires much available RAM. This option is not recommended for systems having the minimum RAM required.
"greatest quality of motion"?
I've heard people talk about it improving scaling (something which I've found Apple Compressor does much more smoothly than AME). Does it switch the scaling mode from nearest neighbour / point sample to bilinear or bicubic or something?
I've also heard talk of better de-interlacing.
Is it independent of the export codec? i.e., Do its actions take place before encoding (like de-interlacing and scaling would), or does it change the encoding approach of certain codecs?
Does it act on Premiere Sequences at all, for example improving subpixel transformations or something like that?
