HEVC Workflow: Encode H.264 MP4 to H.265 MP4 on PC

In order to smoothly work H.265 files on PC, is there any best workflow to encode H.265 to H.264, which can be much more suitable for PC

Question 1: Why we need to encode h.265 video files to H.264 on PC? 

Cause the latest H.265/HEVC codec has not been fully spread well, sometimes we need to find some advanced video encoders to make some changes of this new codec in order to a further editing or enjoyment, etc. Briefly comparison of H.265 and H.264 is: Smaller size, higher quality. As the new codec standard beyond the common video technology in our market, we still need some time to make some improvements in this area. That’s the reason why it is usually necessary for us to encode the H.265 videos.

Question 2: Could you give more detailed definition of H.265/HEVC?

HEVC/H.265, the successor to AVC/H.264, more than triples the existing AVC intra-frame prediction modes to achieve significant bitrates savings, It is targeted to next-generation HDTV displays and content capture systems that feature progressive scanned frames and display resolutions from QVGA (320x240) up to 1080p and Ultra HDTV 4320p (7680x4320.) In addition, the intra-picture or inter-picture prediction types provide higher encoding flexibility. The result is a codec that can offer up to 50% reduced bitrate at the same quality when compared to AVC/H.264.

Question 3: Any best H.265 encoder you can offer to us?

What a coincidence! Do you know the Pavtube Studio? It has announced that their upgraded product version of Video Converter can support the H.265/HEVC encode and decode. What a surprise here! With the added item ‘H.265 Video’ we can choose it as the output well! More upgraded information you can read here.

Question 4: Any specific guide to work this H.265 encoder well?
Of course! Launch the main interface when you download the program form the official website. Load your H.265 mp4 files in with ‘Add video’ or ‘Add form folder’ for individual clips or complete folder. From H.265 MP4 to H.264 MP4, just comt to the output list for next step. On the ‘Common Video’ list, three types of H.264 codec they have added in this version. Mostly, we are called to select the ‘H.264 High Profiles Video (*.mp4)’ as the best. 

Notes: The other two H.264 codec types, H.264 Baseline and H.264 Main. For some older players or devices, surly you can choose them to have a try. On the other hand, their quality will be worse than High Profile. On the other hand, from H.264 to H.265, we only change the output selection into ‘HD Viddeo’>>’H.265 HD Video (*.mp4)’. You won’t miss it!

No other requirements? Surely you can start your conversion work! Or for some advanced users, several functional items there you must be interested in, right? Such as the ‘Edit’ button, here we can be a good editor to adjust our videos for a better enjoyment on PC. Add what we want and get rid of what we unwanted. Take the following screen shot as a reference.

Back to the main topic of this guide, do you still feel it is hard to encode our H.265 MP4 to H.64 MP4 on PC? Of course not! With a good reputation, Pavtube studio is always keeping moving on and standing on the top of the video dispose area. Any other suggestions or opinions you can leave some comments below.

Surprise for Pavtube Upgraded Windows Products! H.265/HEVC or XVAC Codec Supported!

Pavtube Studio has upgraded their all Windows products to the newest versions which can support the H.265/HEVC or XAVC codec videos.

Good news for everybody! Thanks to the Pavtube Studio, we can realize our hope to enjoy the super high quality videos encoded by H.265 or HEVC. During this 2014 Christmas holidays, it is indeed a big Christmas gift for everyone who loves shooting high definition videos, right? Let’s find more details about this great job!

Tips: Development and prospect of Pavtube Studio---News for Upgraded H.265/HEVC Converter!

Main new features we may be interested in:
1. H.265/HEVC encode supported
2.H.265/HEVC decode supported
3.Support MXF in XAVC Video Codec
4.Add H.264 baseline/main/high output profiles

What Windows products are upgraded well?
For videos:
Pavtube HD Video Converter
Pavtube Video Converter
Pavtube MXF Converter
Pavtube MXF MultiMixer
Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter

For DVD and Blu-ray:
Pavtube BDMagic
Pavtube ByteCopy
Pavtube DVDAid

Both for Videos and DVD/Blu-ray:
Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate

What is HEVC(H.265)? 
High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is the latest generation video compression standard. This standard was developed by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG), through their Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC)
HEVC is also known as ISO/IEC 23008-2 MPEG-H Part 2 and ITU-T H.265
HEVC provides superior video quality and up to twice the data compression as the previous standard (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC)
HEVC can support 8K Ultra High Definition video, with a picture size up to 8192×4320 pixels

The benefits of H.265
H.264 has been a huge success. It’s a flexible codec standard that’s used by streaming services, satellite providers, and for Blu-ray discs. It’s scaled remarkably well since it was first proposed and is capable of handling 3D, 48-60 fps encodes, and even 4K. The Blu-ray disc standard doesn’t currently include provisions for some of these technologies, but the H.264 codec itself is capable of handling them.

The problem with H.264, however, is that while it can handle these types of encodes, it can’t do so while simultaneously keeping file sizes low. A new standard is necessary to push file/stream sizes back down while driving next-generation adoption, and that’s where H.265 comes in. It’s designed to utilize substantially less bandwidth thanks to advanced encoding techniques and a more sophisticated encode/decode model.

With the popularity of H.265(HEVC) and XAVC, more and more users are fond of enjoying this high resolution videos. So in this way, Pavtube Studio has offered us an efficient way when meeting troubles in editing incompatible H.265 videos in NELs or play on media players. Pavtube products I think that can do you a big favor.

How to Import Canon XA20 60p MTS Videos to Aperture 3

My primary camera is a Canon XF300, and the XA20 is my backup. I shot in an indoor theatre, this footage at the link down below really shows off the amazing optical zoom range this new camcorder has. And it shows what sort of image quality you can get in both good light, and also under poor lighting.
