In the old days we were also providing a home for the famous HC Encoder, a high quality freeware MPEG-2 encoder by Hank315. As a result there are still of lot of old links around the Web pointing to hcencoder.bitburners.com. It is the best companion for the DVD-ReBuilder backup tool, providing similar or better quality than costly commercial alternatives (such as CinemaCraft's encoder).
HCenc is a full-featured MPEG2 encoder.
Main features of HCenc:
- easy to use GUI
- SD and HD resolutions are supported
- input via Avisynth or DGIndex
- 1-pass or 2-pass variable bitrate (VBR) encoding
- automatic or fixed GOP structure
- scene change detection
- total control over quantization matrices
- supports multiprocessing
- 23.976 → 29.97 pulldown
- and a lot more...
You can download the latest version 028 (dated 08-May-2015) from here, but be sure to check Hank315's website for an occasional update.
