Render Profile Parameters - How to read them

Custom render profiles.png

The parameters that go into a render profile derive from the ffmpeg program.

This is a worked example to show how you can understand what these parameters mean using the ffmpeg documentation.

In the example above the parameters are:

f=dvd 
vcodec=mpeg2video 
acodec=mp2  
b=5000k 
maxrate=8000k 
minrate=0 
bufsize=1835008 
mux_packet_s=2048 
mux_rate=10080000 
ab=192k 
ar=48000 
s=720x576 
g=15 
me_range=63 
trellis=1 
profile=dv_pal_wide 
pass=2

Looking up the ffmpeg help translates these parameters as:

a main option is

-f fmt            force format

video options are

-vcodec codec     force video codec ('copy' to copy stream)
-pass n           select the pass number (1 or 2)
-b bitrate        set bitrate (in bits/s)
-vb bitrate       set bitrate (in bits/s)
-s size           set frame size (WxH or abbreviation)
-me_range         <int>   E.V.. limit motion vectors range (1023 for DivX player)
-trellis          <int>   E.VA. rate-distortion optimal quantization

audio options are

-acodec codec     force audio codec ('copy' to copy stream)
-ab bitrate       set bitrate (in bits/s)
-ar rate          set audio sampling rate (in Hz)

The AVCodecContext AVOptions include:

-b                <int>   E.V.. set bitrate (in bits/s)
-maxrate          <int>   E.V.. set max video bitrate tolerance (in bits/s)
-minrate          <int>   E.V.. set min video bitrate tolerance (in bits/s)
-g                <int>   E.V.. set the group of picture size

So all the render profile options are documented here in the ffmpeg documentation.
