I would like to rip my own, very long, home made, movies into HEVC (x265).
They are currently saved in x264 using HandBrake, RF 15 or something similar to preserve quality. They are 1080p in size.


This question is all about various approaches as to how to accomplish this task.
That is:

  • Name any software you have yourself used and have experience with! (For us to be able to place questions on you, if necessary.)


CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ @ 2.80 - 3.80 GHz, Kaby Lake:

The Kaby Lake & Coffee Lake microarchitecture adds full fixed-function H.265/HEVC Main10/10-bit encoding and decoding acceleration & full fixed-function VP9 8-bit & 10-bit decoding acceleration & 8-bit encoding acceleration

RAM: 16 GB DDR4 2400MHz


Requirements for answers

  • Please adhere to my hardware configuration.

  • State what acceleration method(s) the software is capable of.

  • State its license model.

  • You may include what special features your recommended software has.

  • You may include how intuitive the user interface is.

StaxRip, documentation

  • License: Open-source, MIT, details on GitHub.

  • Acceleration: NVIDIA NVENC x265 supported, pure CPU or Intel Quick Sync Video, AMD too.

  • User interface: Very unintuitive. You may have to dig yourself into different settings options.

  • Features: It may very well have the most of features I have ever seen, yet again, in unintuitive UI.
