    Default High Quality Encode With Baka Encoder

    Baka Encoder
    Neat AVC/AAC encoding tool.
    Baka Encoder is a self-contained x264 and NeroAAC frontend dedicated for producing final encodings of video materials. Handles AviSynth scripts, video/audio without compression and video compressed with common intermediate codecs. Presets are defined via xml config with direct control over x264 and NeroAAC command line parameters.
    This tool was developed mostly as a replacement for MeGUI to be less cluttered, more flexible and providing better quality.

    Works on:
    Windows XP
    Windows Vista
    Windows 7
    Windows 8
    Handles:
    Uncompressed PCM audio
    Uncompressed RGBA, RGB, RGB48, YUY2, YV12
    HuffYUV
    Lagarith (without null frames)
    UT Video
    MJPG
    Avisynth scripts
    Features:
    Proper Unicode support
    Clean UI
    Batch file processing with task queue
    Performs proper RGB-YCbCr conversion when necessary
    Prevents upsampling
    Supports 10-bit video encoding
    Provides full control over encoding parameters
    Supports thorough logging
    Encoding process can be paused
    English, Estonian, German, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian) and Russian localizations
    No installation required
    Known issues:
    Multichannel audio encoding sometimes is performed incorrectly.
    Some antivirus software fallaciously classify Baka Encoder as malware. This is probably caused by extraction of packed tools and libraries, as such a behavior is not common. (this should be solved since v1.1.0)
    Notes:
    This software is free for non-commercial usage.
    No warranties are implied, you are using this software on your own risk.
    Avisynth required only if you want to process scripts.
    For 4:2:0 output subsampling width and height of the input (and output) video must be multiple of 2 pixels.
    For 4:2:2 output subsampling width of the input (and output) video must be multiple of 2 pixels.
    Actually just use standard dimensions.
    Log files have the same name as output files with ".log.txt" appended.
    Only one application instance allowed to run at the same time.
    In order to load particular presets file drop it onto Baka Encoder.exe.
    Although Baka Encoder is a GUI tool it can also parse some command line arguments
    "Baka Encoder.exe" "path_to_config_file" "path_to_input_file_1" ... "path_to_input_file_n"
    Temporary files are stored in TEMP Baka Encoder folder located at disk root,
    e.g. if you are encoding file
    "C:\My Documents\my amv.avi"
    temp folder will be
    "C:\TEMP Baka Encoder\"
    This folder is created in the beginning of encoding and is automatically deleted after encoding.
    Approximate RAM consumption, Gb
    SD ~ 0.5 ... 1.0
    HD 720p ~ 1.0 ... 1.5
    HD 1080p ~ 3.0 ... 4.5
    System menu (can be opened by left-clicking on small icon on the top left corner of the application window, or right clicking on window title or taskbar preview) contains additional "Always on top", "Donate" and "About" items.

    New version of my alternate config!
    Change log:
    "express preset" became 25% faster but videostream size became 3% more

    well, wall of text is nice and all but i dont encode often enough to know over half the stuff you wrote. so a simple mans question. is it better then zarxgui encoder? if yes, is it better encoding time/fps/resolution/bitrate/compresion/whatever you call that keeps the details in wise?

    Contrary to popular belief, no one that posts on the forums actually makes AMVs. I would try this out, but I have nothing worth encoding at the moment.

    Encoder:
    1) pause;
    2) queue;
    3) color right autoconvertion bt709 for HD and bt601 SD (colors after encode in player = RGB source colors in VirtualDub);
    4) now you can encode without installation avisynth if you don't use scripts;
    5) you can 10bit encode;
    6) you can create your own presets or edit existing if want;
    7) you can limit the resolution without change aspect ratio and without use scripts;
    8) no installation required;
    9) winXP, win7 and win8.
    10) "Baka Encoder 32-64" version can use 32 bit AviSynth with 64-bit x264

    My config presets:
    1) preview 5MB/min - the best quality for 8bit 270p at 5MB/min limitation (but for 5-30min video you can change bitrate to 600-632 for to make more accurate 5MB/min);
    2) preview 4MB/min - the best quality for 8bit 270p at 4MB/min limitation;
    3) main ver1 - the best quality for 8bit CRF18 (without psy-rd);
    4) main ver2 - the best quality for 8bit CRF17 (without psy-rd);
    5) main 10bit - the best quality for 10bit CRF17 (without psy-rd);
    6) alt - the best quality for 8bit CRF16;
    7) alt 10bit - the best quality for 10bit CRF15;
    8) express - the best quality for 8bit CRF18 maximum encode speed (without psy-rd);
    9) lossless - h264/mp4 lossless.

    And yes! It's better and simplest then zarxgui encoder and my presets makes the best quality! But not the best encoding time and compression because the best encoding time and compression = worse quality. If you want the best encoding time - use "express preset" or create your preset.

    I do!......sort of....... not really, though. It's been almost a year I think since my last one, and I haven't really worked on any others for quite awhile.
