  • Guide to Adopting AV1 Encoding

    The hardware encoders are very fast and generally better than x264 (but not by as much as you'd think with the x264 slow preset).

    In addition, there are threaded AV1 encoders you may be overlooking, like SVT-AV1. For non-realtime, my favorite is av1an, which also yields better quality than is possible from aomenc: https://github.com/master-of-zen/Av1an

    Basically Av1an.

    There's also Av1an as suggested by someone else. It's going to produce more efficient encodes because it uses chunk-based encoding to reach the required VMAF for every single chunk, but this is also slower because every chunk will be re-encoded until the VMAF target is reached. It's also a PITA to compile, has a long list of bugs, and isn't very actively developed. One of the long-standing issues is that frames have a tendency to go missing during splitting, which IME is going to keep happening when the input files aren't standardized. And thus the recommendation is to transcode the input to lossless first, which is just completely unsustainable.

    Have you seen Av1an? It's supposed to encode to a target VMAF.

    Here's a couple of pages that cover the basics of aomenc: https://github.com/master-of-zen/Av1an/blob/master/docs/Encoders/aomenc.md https://gist.github.com/shssoichiro/a46ff01db70243c1719479f6518ea34d For more of a deep dive into settings, you can join the discord, lots of people share their settings and you can see what's working well for others.

    Av1an can even aim for a target quality.

    I like using NotEnoughAV1Encodes. There's also Av1an, and ab-av1.

    In your case, I'd get one of the [nightly builds](https://github.com/master-of-zen/Av1an/releases/tag/latest) of Av1an. They should work with ffmpeg 5.
