FFMPEG bitrate not editable for all codecs
Closed, ResolvedPublic


System Information

Blender Version
Broken: 2.79 5bd8ac9cbfa
Worked: 2.78 3c043732d3f

Short description of error
After the remake of the Encoding settings in Render tab the Rate: settings is greyed out and non editable.

If a blend is saved in 2.78, with custom bitrate set, that file is opened as normal editable in 2.79, but any additional scenes created there have greyed out rate settings.

(Tested with 2.79 and 2.79a, default settings and startup scene)

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) lowered the priority of this task from 90 to 50.

As a quick workaround, you can select a codec that has a Constant Rate Factor (CRF) labeled 'Output quality' (e.g. H.264) set it to 'None; use constant bit-rate' and switch back.
