Nick Driftwood: 8K Lumix GH5 Hi Rez Anamorphic – Hybrid Log Gamma – All Intra HLG Pro Rez to HEVC using Handbrake

“Music by Nick Driftwood. This is a 10-bit 420 encode using Handbrake HEVC x265. Now you can use Handbrake to encode your HLG Rec2020 / videos. This is an extreme example at hi rez anamorphic but basically the settings for handbrake h265 HEVC encodes are the same. Use the CRF constant Rate Factor to slide/change quality (lower is better quality but longer encodes).

Use chrome or other compatible browser to view upto 8K (Anamorphic x2 desqueeze to 9 884 pixels x 3 744 pixels in great quality INTRA).

The critical thing to remember is to insert the text ‘transfer=arib-std-b67’ into the Additional Options box.”
