Encoding Tips: 

_______

– If you need alpha encoding use HAPA or HAPQA
– Avoid the use of non multiples of 4 pixel resolution (some media server / Gpu don’t work well with non multiples of 4 resolution).
– For Motion design content :
   – Use banding reduction in your after effect composition.
   – If you use HAP/A codec, use Slow quality preset if you have small gradient, otherwise Normal quality.
   – Try to crop your render to match your content (and avoid big empty areas).
     The impact of an empty area on file size is small, but it will increase the resources needed to play your footage.
– For real picture content , if you use HAP/A codec, Normal quality is a good choice.
– For Motion design and real picture, the HAPQ codec gives the best quality and very fast encoding.
– For encoding matte part or wholly  grey, use “HAP Alpha Only” if the playout software support it.
– Adapt the “chunks” setting to the computer/app used to play your video (most of the time you can define the value of the number of “chunks” to the number of cores of the diffusion computer)
