handbrake Finally received its update for Mac Apple M1. The video converter app has been offering an optimized beta for Apple computers under the new build for several months now, but version 1.4 took its time to release in the final version. This has been the case for a few hours, and even if nothing visually changes or is almost there Many changes.
In addition to native support for Apple Silicon chips, Handbrake 1.4 can now encode videos in 10- and 12-bit color-coded. If the original file is that quality, the app won’t automatically convert it to 8-bit video, which has been the standard for years. However, the makers of Handbrake caution that not all filters are compatible with these exact colors and If we choose one which still operates in 8 bits, we will automatically go back to that level.
In the Long list of changes, we note mentioning more efficiently stored previews, which should reduce the temporary storage space used by Handbrake. On the interface side, the tab dedicated to video dimensions has been revised before encoding, particularly for file managementUpgrade, ie, transfer the video to a higher resolution. On macOS, the app also manages files
