DANIEL2 recomended bitrate

4 months 6 days ago #23 by Paul
Hello !
DANIEL2 as editing format has many advantages especially with the final export.
I noted at least a double increase of exports speed.
Due to this, I have a question:
Which bitrate should be set when transcoding the sources into the DANIEL2 ?
For example, how to calculate the optimal bitrate for the sources 1080p 50FPS 4.2.2 ?
I think you will agree with me that it makes no sense to create huge files without the need.
Therefore, if it's not hard for you, please provide a small recommendations about optimal bitrate settings

Thank You !

Hello Paul!
The recommended bit rate is automatically calculated and set during the plugin configuration process. It is recalculated every time you change frame size, frame rate, bit depth or chroma subsampling. If you feel that the value is not optimal for you, you are free to adjust it according to your needs and preferences.

I just started testing this codec but so far I use similar bitrate as DNxHR SQ gives you. It is CBR 260mbps for 1080p 50fps and CBR 500mbps for 25fps 4K.
