I saw the post recently from AlexxAMV on "muxing" which got me wondering, what is the best way to convert footage?
I currently use handbrake to convert all the stuff I use but I notice there is quite a difference in quality when I compare the original mkv to the outputted mp4. I'm aware it's probably my settings but, what do you believe is the best way to convert your footage to maintain the highest quality? If possible could you point out a tutorial that explains it, I'd appreciate it greatly.
While I'm at it, if you've any recommendations as to which way I should render the footage / what encoder to use to ensure you keep the best quality possible for uploading again I'd appreciate it.
