The HEVC format doubles the data compression ratio.
Now you can enjoy this advantage fast and simple with an application with a command-line interface, DivX HEVC Encoder. Its size is minuscule, but its effects are more than satisfying.
The fact that the DivX HEVC Encoder can be used through the command console should not scare you off. The syntax is simple and easier to learn than you’d expect.
This HEVC encoder can process format files such as AVI, AVS and YUV. You have a variety of options at hand (setting the output bitrate, the number of frames to encode, the keyframe interval, the framerate of the output video and so on).
After encoding, you have the possibility of muxing video using the MKVToolnix
patched for HEVC and you can play the resulting video file using the DivX 10 Player
The latest versions of the DivX HEVC Encoder allow faster encoding (up to three times faster) and offer support for 64 and 32 bit systems. Moreover, you enjoy new options, such as wrt signalling colorspace properties: -709, --colour-primaries, --transfer-characteristics, --matrix-coefficients.
In conclusion, DivX HEVC Encoder may be a very small tool, but its power is undeniable when it comes to converting AVI, AVS or YUV files to the HEVC format.
Its main advantages are the extremely small size, the various customization options you can apply (with explanations provided) and the high conversion speed.
You can use this command-line application even if you are not an expert and get very good results.
- DivX HEVC Encoder requires the VC 2013 runtime.
- DivX developers recommends to use the 32 bit version with AviSynth
Why use the HEVC format? The answer is because it helps you obtain high-quality video files which occupy less memory space on your computer.
