FFMepg encoding - Lossless video and flac sound Not working
Closed, ArchivedPublic

Description

System Information
win 10 64 bit - 980ti

Blender Version
Nov 18 Official DL Blender 2.78
Worked: (optional)

Short description of error
Setting output and encoding to h.264 Lossless doesn't work it still uses whatever bitrate is set, Also Flac lossless on the video doesn't have sound after I render.

If I use mpeg output and mpeg-4 Encoding and H.264 Codec than it seems to not use the bitrate but still compresses.

Using Vlc and blender to playback

Looks like AVI and MP4 containers (h.264 and mpeg-4 encoding formats) don't even support FLAC, so it shouldn't be even available as an option to choose from.

Lossless output setting is for video according to the tooltip.

How do you use blender to edit while still using original audio and picture?

Closing, this is a known issue, hopefully in the future the UI for this can be improved and thus eliminate these kind of incompatible errors.
