Divinci Resolve video output
#1
Noob question here. I'm working with an x264 mp4 as my source and would like to export the work I've done with minimal quality reduction. Should I export as a high bitrate x264/265 mp4 or a lossless format, then use something like Handbrake to encode it with x264/265? Thanks Smile New to all of this.

No right or wrong answer to this really but if you export and don't like anything about how the result looks then you're going to need to export from scratch again afterwards so personally I'd suggest exporting to a "master" format first and then encoding that with something like x264. Doing that will also get you far more control over the encoder settings than you would from Resolve.

You get much more control with command line tools than you do with GUI stuff but it's fairly daunting to start with and kind of frustrating to understand fully. There are a lot of ways of doing things and there's not necessarily one "correct" configuration. It depends on the source video and what you're trying to achieve with it and often you just need to experiment a bit before you get it looking like you want it to at a file size you consider acceptable.

Okay, cool. Yeah. Going down the route of command line tools involves a little bit of a learning curve that I'm not sure I'm prepared to do Tongue If I was simply trimming a section of video from a file, then yeah. I think I'll export as a "master" and use Handbrake to do the rest. Thanks for the replies pipefan Smile
