Preset default values

    Changed the title of the thread from “Preset Standart Werte” to “Preset default values”.

    Added the Label Investigating
  • More precise: I need to think about it if I want to have it implemented or not.


    I don't want to have any hardcoded mapping of presets to a list of parameters as these presets might change in the future by the x264 devs.


    Also if you save the the final configuration and load it again you would only have the single parameters selected again and there'd be no connection to the original preset anymore.


    What if you first select "slow" then "fast"? Would it set the single params for "slow" and when selecting "fast" it'd overwrite them and add more from "fast?" This is creating a mess.


    That's why I am not too excited about it.

    Help to improve this plugin and support me on patreon or paypal. Thank you.

  • My idea was to create something like "preset" files where every parameter is defined. When you select a preset in Voukoder it loads these parameters and set it as default (settings before will be overridden). StaxRip is a good example.

    Initially you were talking about the x264 "preset" parameter, right? Sounds more like custom defined presets now. There is a huge difference between both. Custom encoder presets are planned already, but I'm currently focused on bugfixing right now.

    Yes preset parameters

    I'll mark it as rejected for now. I understand your point, but there is no good UI concept. The Voukoder UI works similar to the command line parameters. And other option would be to remove the x264 preset option completely and deal with the single options only. But then... why?


    Currently we have the workflow:

    • You can use a preset i.e. "slow"
    • But then you have the possibility of overwriting single parameters, even if they are already set with the preset.
