Ffmpeg does that. Depending on what you're trying to do there are several other programs that come with an easy-to-use GUI (XMedia Recode, for instance).


Has anyone done or seen any tests comparing Apple ProRes 422 with high-bitrate H.264? No, but I can tell you that x264 can get as close to lossless as you want (or even mathematically lossless, with -qp 0). x264 can produce h.264 streams in 4:2:0, 4:2:2, or 4:4:4 YUV colorspaces, at 8 or 10 bits per component. (It can also do RGB, but unless you're ...


Any decent encoder can hit a target bitrate (with 2pass), but still spend the bits intelligently to achieve similar quality throughout the file. x264 2pass figures out what CRF will give the desired bitrate (pass1), and then uses it (pass2). (source: Dark Shikari. cf. the links I dug up for my answer on this question about VBR streaming). You only get ...
