Default Vegas vs. Avidemux AVC - Quality differences...

Hey guys,


When I render a 1080p video with avidemux, AVC codec, constant rate factor at 26 I get an overall bitrate of ca. 11.5 (MediaInfo). When I render the same video in Vegas 11 Pro Trial with the MainConcept AVC with the maximum bitrate set to 15k, average set to 12 I get a HORRIBLY less quality video! The overall bitrate is higher but I see a LOT of blockyness in the video... So many blocks! Bah!

I almost want to use Lagarith Lossless Codec in Vegas and then re--render the stuff with Avidemux but Avidemux ... Sadly... Does not like GPU accelleration which I am a BIG FAN of.

Any tips?

Is there a better way to use the x264 codec in Vegas? Maybe a way where I can actually use the great great "constant rate factor"? I am all about quality, not really telling the exact file size if you know what I mean...

Thank you a lot guys, this is my first post and I hope I am not making to many mistakes.

Have a nice one,

I know what is wrong now... After a whole night on google...

Apparently Vegas, the so called industry standart, comes with SHITTY h264 codecs! Why the HELL would I want to use 20k bit rates if I can just save a lossless uncompressed video and then just re-render it with handbrake? No GPU accel there YET. But soon.

Goddamit, big people in the indusrty always suck at these little things. Bah.

Still vegas wins, you can actually edit the codecs you want to use there.
