x264: 32bit or 64bit?
I tried the last and the one before the last, no way to let it work... I'm tired, and lazy, so I downloaded the Simple x264 Launcher, using the "usual" parameters. Encoding right now; indexing is fast - indeed, it seems too fast... Big Grin - second pass is lightning fast as well, around 23fps where I was around 1fps and something on the old PC, hence 15, 20 times faster now...

What can I say? I'm happy! Happy

That is a significant increase in speed Andrea. I'm happy for you too Wink Big Grin

Yep, a definitive quantum leap! Big Grin

x264 64bit is slightly faster than 32bit, but not that much; I noted that, with a two pass encoding, it takes around 3 times the clip lenght, so for The Thing (109min) it took around 6 hours. Not bad, considering it would take two days (and more) with the old PC!!!

Now, time to upgrade to a new internet connection - fiber, here I come! Ok

What do you use for final official release?

Can you give me a cli example of this? I use avs2yuv without pipebuf and it works pretty well but maybe pipebuf works better?

Here's an example of how I would do it only using avs2yuv:

avs2yuv -raw -o - "input.avs" | x264_64 --input-res 720x480 --fps 24000/1001 --preset=veryslow --crf 14 --ref 3 --bframes 2 --tune film --keyint 250 --sar 40:33 --colorprim "smpte170m" --transfer "smpte170m" --colormatrix "smpte170m" --stats ".stats" --output "output.mkv" -

If simple x264 launcher works as well as you say I might switch over to it. Thanks for the tip!
