help with h264


There is no answer!

hi all, i use autodesk cleaner xl to batch encode hundreds of avi's to h.264 within the .mov enviroment.

right now i've got it so i can compress about 10 mins into 100mbs.

But this seems way hi, the resolution is 640x480 it is progressive and i am currently limiting the data rate to 900kps. the key frame is at 50. it is ntsc 29.97 fps using a standard 44.1khz mpg4 audio codec.

Two questions anyone know how i can get the files smaller, but retaining or even increasing the quality, and two if not. is there a better program out there that can batch convert hundreds of avi's into the h264 codec?
also preferrably one that supports a quad core machine.

I used sorenson once, but it will not put watermarks on the movies as it processes them, i use a pc under xp.

thanks a lot.
You can save space by reducing frames. If your source videos are lower than 29.97 you could save a lot of space or increase a lot of quality by picking a matching framerate. I'm sure with hundreds, though, it would be a pain to examine them all.

if its 29.97 convert them to 23fps, this can be a pain though, although you will have to mess about with the audio or you will get audio and video out of sync

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
