I’m interested to know if anyone else has experience using HEVC (H.265) as a codec for their videos?
It has been incorporated in Adobe CC and from initial tests I can say it does everything it promises i.e. Compresses video to half the file size for the same quality as a H.264 encode or to the same file size at twice the quality.
Playing it on a HDTV it delivers the same results as a Blu-ray at half the bit rate (20 mbps compared to 40 mbps). I have also found it to encode files in half the time it takes to encode the same file at the same settings for a H.264 encode.
Anyone else interested in seeing this as a compression format for download on Videohive? Anyone know of any downsides to the codec?
