    Don't use Premiere Pro!

    I've been trying for a couple weeks to figure out why I couldn't get this video up to good quality when exporting in premiere pro:
    https://www.thecandidforum.com/short...orts-ever.html

    I finally found out that Adobe uses a different h.265 codec that's apparently not very good. I exported that video at a whopping 50mbps and it looks WORSE than handbrake at 12mbps.

    Adobe is also much slower.

    if anyone wants to know my handbrake settings for h.265 just pm me but i basically just set the quality between 18 - 22 and set speed to "medium". Apparently "slower" can result in a smaller file size but might sacrifice quality. I found some benchmarks that showed it's not exactly perfect and "medium" can have a smaller file size than "slower" sometimes too.

    Just thought I'd share with you guys that might be using adobe. HandBrake is definitely superior for final encodes. I just export in lossy in adobe and then throw it into handbrake.

    I use x265 free encoder with Adobe Media Encoder. It works just fine.

    my point was that it uses a subpar codec than handbrake does. if you took the same exact video and compared with handbrake you would see that adobe does not look nearly as good. i posted a bunch of videos here without even thinking about it and would have said the same thing though. maybe later i will post an image comparison and show how much detail is lost using adobe's.

    I agree. I used Premiere Pro a couple of weeks and found out the video quality dropped roughly 10-20% less regardless of the settings. Probably uses different codec for that matter. Shame i was actually warming up to it.

    Might check up first what codecs you have installed on your machine, prior to Adobe Premiere install.
    I'm using premiere Pro for quite some time and never had any issues with video quality dropping.
    Usually people are installing all kind of crap codecs packs then complaining why their computers are acting weird

    also people always suggest to use handbrake here but we all are used to adobe's UI, menus etc. so if i want to use handbrake i have to encode video 2 times. first editing in the adobe then encode with original quality then again encode with handbrake. i just dont want to do that 2 times...

    I use Adobe PP incl. Media Encoder but use the external encoder of voukoder...my results in 4k and 1080p up to 50fps (h264/265 .mp4 .mkv)are great by using voukoder as encoder. Some knowledge how to setup the best settings provided.
    Just google "voukoder" :-) Hope it helps to say RIP to adobe's built in encoders :-)
