Video Enhance AI ffmpeg in the app folder

C:\Program Files\Topaz Labs LLC\Topaz Video Enhance AI contains ffmpeg.exe so I’m assuming that’s what being used for MP4 encoding.
It would be nice if Topaz would allow custom commands so I could choose my own settings such as container and encoder like HEVC, crf, bitrate, etc…
It doesn’t really make sense why customization is not allowed, or maybe I’m missing something…

Thanks for any help.

Other than some kind of licensing issues, I see no reason why would we not have more customization. Combining best of both worlds, AI automation with manual tweaking and choice. I agree.

I’m sure that it’s a licensing thing.

I use ffmpeg already (and I have always had VEAI output 16-bit tiffs).

It works better for me to render as I go, so every 10,000 frames, I render them into an mp4.

What’s nice about this approach for me is that in two-pass projects, upscaling small mp4s keeps all the second pass folders at 10,000 frames, so I don’t have to rename them for the second set of mp4 renderings.
