How can I create 4K HEVC H.265 files from my on hand videos? This post will give you some hints. It states the advantages of HEVC codec, and explains how to encode a video to 4K HEVC H.265 in simple steps.
What are the advantages of HEVC codec?
HEVC, also known as H.265, was developed with the goal of providing twice the compression efficiency of the previous standard, H.264 / AVC. Although compression efficiency results vary depending on the type of content and the encoder settings, at typical consumer video distribution bit rates HEVC is typically able to compress video twice as efficiently as AVC. End-users can take advantage of improved compression efficiency in one of two ways (or some combination of both):
1. At an identical level of visual quality, H.265 codec enables video to be compressed to a file that is about half the size (or half the bit rate) of H.264,
2. When compressed to the same file size or bit rate as H.264, H.265 delivers significantly better visual quality.
How to create a 4K HEVC/H.265 video?
To produce 4K HEVC/H.265 files via using this 4K HEVC/H.265 video creator app, follow these steps：
Step 1: Click “Add File” to load video files that you want to convert into this program.
Step 2: Click “Profile” to select “4K Video” > “4K H.265/HEVC Video (*.mp4)” as target format.
Step 3: Set advanced settings
If necessary, you can click “Settings” to modify video and audio parameters like encoder, resolution, frame rate, bitrate, aspect ratio, sample rate, and audio channels. You can also “enable 3D Settings” to add 3D effect to your source media.
Step 4: Click “Convert” to start generating 4K HEVC/H.265 files.
As soon as the conversion is complete, click “Open Folder” to get the generated files.
