HD quality

Now that I can export to HD, here is a quick quality test. It seems to me that quality at the same bitrate between WMV and h.264 is similar, although WMV features more of the original colors. I tried giving more kbps to h.264 but it didn’t got much better, while mpeg2 at 25mbps (that bitrate is the standard for .m2t HDV files) has really nice punchy colors and detail. Mpeg2 and wmv were exported by Vegas, while x.264 via ffmpeg on 2 passes:

ffmpeg.exe -deinterlace -y -i “lossless.avi” -threads 2 -an -pass 1 -f mp4 -title “My JBQ” -vcodec h264 -level 41 -refs 2 -loop 1 -deblockalpha 0 -deblockbeta 0 -parti4x4 1 -partp8x8 1 -partb8x8 1 -me full -subq 6 -brdo 1 -me_range 21 -s 1920×1080 -r 30000/1001 -b 9216k -bt 9216k -bufsize 20000k -maxrate 25000k -g 300 -coder 1 -acodec aac -ac 2 -ab 128k “1080p-30.mp4″
